19:02 jnthn oh shoot, it's #phasers time
19:02 mberends \o/
19:03 jnthn Who's here?
19:03 * moritz_
19:03 sorear Who's wanted?
19:03 colomon o/
19:03 jnthn phasees
19:03 jnthn ;-)
19:05 moritz_ so, anybody want to report anything?
19:05 jnthn Yes, let me type it up, @other can go first while I do that. :-)
19:05 moritz_ I'll type on-the-fly
19:05 colomon um, I fiddled around a little with the numeric comparison operators.  that is all.  :(
19:05 colomon .eor
19:05 moritz_ fiddled more with regex adverbs
19:05 moritz_ ran into a problem while doing m:g// correctly
19:06 moritz_ which I summarized here: http://perlgeek.de/blog-en/perl-6/state-of-regex-modifiers.html
19:06 moritz_ no idea how to proceed from there, any input welcome
19:07 moritz_ maybe a flag in the match object for now, which tells us if it's a multi-value match object or not?
19:07 moritz_ apart from that, I've done some minor nits here and there
19:07 moritz_ try to do a bit for the book; removed a few TODOs, not much more
19:07 moritz_ .eor
19:08 sorear Didn't TimToady say something about setting $/ = undef and returning a list of Match from ACCEPTS?
19:08 moritz_ sorear: he speculated
19:08 moritz_ I haven't seen any decisions
19:09 moritz_ returning lists is what we do now
19:09 moritz_ which doesn't work for m:g//
19:09 moritz_ because our current code for m/foo/  is bascially the same as $/ := $_.match(rx{foo})
19:10 moritz_ and that doesn't like a return list, for some reason
19:14 * jnthn has his report ready
19:14 moritz_ if nobody has a comment, let's just move on
19:15 jnthn ok
19:15 jnthn LAST WEEK
19:15 jnthn * Dug into the meta-model prototype
19:15 jnthn * Prototyping it on the .Net CLR first, for various reasons
19:15 jnthn * Building various bits around it so we can actually run code
19:15 jnthn * Goal is to run ClassHOW (which will be written in NQP)
19:15 jnthn * Once I'm far enough that the model feels comfortably sane to me, I'll port the meta-model to Parrot and start hacking its NQP implementation into shape. That's likely going to be a branch for quite a while.
19:16 jnthn * So far I pass just 2 files from the nqp-rx test suite - so nothing to get excited about yet. :-)
19:16 jnthn * On the other hand, I do have KnowHOW and some basic representation polymorphism working - or displayed as workable
19:16 jnthn * Oh, I have a crappy but working first cut at static lexpads too
19:16 jnthn * Tormentored masak a bit
19:16 jnthn THIS WEEK
19:16 jnthn * More meta-model and NQP.NET hacking
19:16 jnthn * File final evaluation on masak++
19:16 jnthn * Watch news.perlfoundation.org hopefully for news of grant approval
19:16 jnthn </report>
19:18 * mberends is trying to do a java port of jnthn's 6model work. no results yet.
19:18 jnthn mberends++
19:20 jnthn I think everyone here reported. Any discussiony things?
19:20 moritz_ anything we absolutely need for the release?
19:21 jnthn I've not noticed any epic "we must fix X" grumbles
19:21 jnthn Has anyone else?
19:21 jnthn (or at least, anything we can feasibly fix for this release)
19:23 colomon jnthn++
19:23 colomon and nope, I've not noticed anything epic grumbles
19:23 moritz_ me neither
19:24 jnthn OK, great. :-)
19:25 moritz_ so, meeting already adjourned? :-)
19:25 takadonet joined #phasers
19:26 mberends oh hai takadonet, we were just leaving ;)
19:26 jnthn Looks like it. No need for it to be long without needing to be. ;-)
19:27 takadonet mberends: that why you guys have irclogs :)
19:27 jnthn The hottest footwear!
19:29 jnthn OK, with that bad pun, I think it's over. Back to #perl6. :-)
19:29 mberends left #phasers
19:30 takadonet left #phasers
20:03 sorear (At what point are my projects interesting enough for #phasers?)
20:04 moritz_ sorear: I'd be interested in them at any point. Feel free to speak up during the meeting, and paste your report
20:05 moritz_ sorear: we kinda tend to forget non-rakudo projects, which is a pity, and should be changed
20:05 moritz_ no malice or filtering intended
