19:00 sorear done:
19:00 sorear - a version of STD minimally running on niecza ($*foo, 2 + 2, my, sub, some class stuff, comments, basic quotes are working; a lot of more complex stuff still crashes)
19:01 sorear planned:
19:01 sorear - mostly-eager list handling
19:01 sorear - overhaul of contextualizer methods
19:01 sorear blockers:
19:01 sorear - tuit demand spike
19:01 sorear EOR
19:02 pmichaud present, have little to report other than I'm finally feeling better and catching up on @backlog
19:03 masak done: added deprecation note for .pick($, :replace); investigated the LTA "variable not declared" bug. planned: work on Yapsi, another month of November, de-bitrotting Druid. blockers: strangely distracted by $WORK and $LIFE.
19:03 Util *Done - Added 2 RosettaCode Perl6 solutions: Polynomial_long_division and Five_weekends
19:03 Util *Working on - RC Knapsack 0/1   EOR
19:06 Util BTW, I have a local fix (using `install_name_tool`) for OS X bug "R won't run after deleting /parrot/ dir". Will work to generalize the fix, and commit.
19:07 masak the LTA bug I'm talking about is here: http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=78252 -- I personally consider it quite a regression (because it's such a common error), and I'm a bit sad we went to release with it. :-/

19:11 masak is it just me, or has there been a significant drop in activity lately?
19:11 pmichaud there has, I think.
19:11 pmichaud that's somewhat common for fall, I think.
19:12 colomon The number of people committing changes is about half what it was in spring, if I read that chart yesterday correctly.
19:14 TimToady well, everyone is actually trying to use p6 now too as well as implement it :)
19:15 masak that can be a time sink, indeed...
19:22 colomon BTW, in the last week I created Math::Prime, kept hacking away on ABC, and right now I'm spectesting the "Set is Iterable" patch.
19:22 colomon .EOR
19:59 sorear amazingly quiet #phasers today.
20:00 PerlJam we're all resonanting at different frequencies and not quite in phase  :)
20:02 sorear http://feather.perl6.nl/~sorear/tryfile.exe.gz # possibly the most complete standalone .net Perl6 parser, though it still breaks easily
20:03 masak sorear++
20:04 masak any chance of getting that to work on Mac OS X?
20:04 sorear it ought to work as is, if you have mono available
20:10 sorear The only big leaks in the CLR's system abstraction are subprocesses and filesystem access, and Niecza doesn't support either at all yet. :)
20:19 * masak gets Mono
