07:11 sorear PRE REPORT:
07:11 sorear DID
07:12 sorear * not much last week - very few tuits
07:12 sorear * m// returns matches now
07:12 sorear * starting to draw Niecza and STD closer together.  is endsym<> hack imported from viv (actually a slightly nicer version)
07:13 sorear * accepted test patches from moritz++ and diakopter++
07:14 sorear * many other small STD tweaks; using 'old' EXPR again
07:14 sorear the big stuff:
07:14 sorear * RELEASED v3 to little fanfare.  Announcement email seems to have been eaten by p6a
07:15 sorear * &eval is now implemented (well, sort of; lexicals aren't visible and return values are broken, but it's good enough for roast)
07:16 sorear * All Match objects without an explicit $0 get an $0=$/ alias (Experimental change motivated by moritz and TimToady; doesn't seem to have caused any major breakage, and it helps with DTRT a lot)
07:16 sorear WILL DO
07:17 sorear * polish eval some more
07:17 sorear * investigate object model improvments
07:17 sorear * investigate numerics hierarchy
07:17 sorear BLOCKERS
07:17 sorear * none
07:17 sorear EOR
10:17 moritz__ is now known as moritz_

17:41 moritz_ * applied for a Hague grant: http://news.perlfoundation.org/2011/02/hague-grant-application-struct.html
17:42 moritz_ plans:
17:42 moritz_ * think more about the exception stuff from the grant

19:03 jnthn tadzik: no, just started :)
19:03 tadzik fine! But now, I very need a beer

19:05 jnthn Over the last week...
19:05 jnthn * Was mostly AFK relaxing and looking after some guests
19:05 jnthn * Did get some more work done on lexical setting stuff in NQP
19:05 jnthn This week
19:05 jnthn * Preparing for NLPW and speaking there on Saturday
19:05 jnthn * Will have hackathon for 3 days after that
19:05 jnthn * Hope to get some more progress in on the NQP bits I need to move forward with Rakudo nom branch; specifically, static lex pads and the compile time MOP-y stuff
19:06 jnthn EOR
19:06 tadzik bbi15
19:06 masak jnthn++
19:08 jnthn Karma for relaxing \o.
19:08 jnthn :)
19:11 * colomon got so tied up with $work he completely forgot about #phasers
19:11 colomon nothing to report this week, alas, but I think I've nearly fixed the $work bug that ate half my last week...
19:15 mberends joined #phasers
19:20 jnthn mberends: Any report? :)
19:20 tadzik I'm here
19:20 mberends jnthn: sorry, nothing yet. working hard on something sekrit ;)
19:21 tadzik speaking of sikret projects... :)
19:21 jnthn mberends: ooh :)
19:21 mberends yes?
19:21 jnthn If you speak of them, their sekritness is seriously endangered :)
19:21 colomon ooooo
19:22 * moritz_ still waits for a conclusion of masak's previously sekrit project
19:22 * moritz_ can't help teasing :-)
19:23 tadzik moritz_: wasn't that the Coding Contest?
19:23 PerlJam tadzik: p5 is as yet unpublished
19:23 tadzik yeah
19:23 tadzik can I report?
19:23 moritz_ sure
19:24 tadzik so. Closed a bunch of bugs on Sunday, few persons involved, results were promising
19:25 tadzik Fixed stupid Test.pm behaviour, that created a little mess even with Parrot people spectesting, but real-real-clean helps, so that's not a big proble
19:25 masak moritz_: I have some p5 time tonight. don't know if it'll be enough, but it might.
19:25 tadzik Worked on a new module management solution, something modulear and testable; ended up with, pretty much, masak++'s Pls
19:26 tadzik Will hack and discuss more on the hackathon this weekend, the current code it on github/tadzik/Pies, or something like this
19:26 tadzik hmm, that'd be it
19:26 tadzik .EOR
19:27 pmichaud back
19:27 jnthn o/ pm
19:27 tadzik o/
19:27 colomon tadzik++
19:32 masak I'm happy pls might inspire someone. I haven't worked on it in a long time, but I still believe in the idea of pls as a better proto.
19:38 masak did the #phasers meeting end?
19:38 tadzik goals?
19:39 pmichaud I have a report.
19:39 moritz_ pmichaud: then go ahead
19:40 pmichaud as expected, I managed to pretty much finish $otherjob this past week, meaning I have very few @otherjob commitments
19:40 colomon \o/
19:40 pmichaud normally this would free up large numbers of tuits for rakudo/perl6/nqp, but we also got some not-so-good news today that makes my tuit supply very uncertain
19:40 colomon errr... at least assuming you don't need @otherjob commitments for $, of course.
19:40 colomon :(
19:41 mberends left #phasers
19:41 pmichaud without going into details (I'll be glad to describe the other details on a non-logged channel), it's related to my previous absences
19:42 * moritz_ wishes all involved people of luck
19:42 pmichaud so, while I hope to have plenty of tuits for hacking, that supply could dry up real quickly.
19:44 pmichaud anyway, my plan is to work on book, nqp-nom, and try to keep others from blocking
19:44 pmichaud if there are any places where my attention is a priority, let me know :)
19:44 pmichaud eor
19:46 colomon pmichaud: as usual, let us know if there's anything we can do to help.
19:46 * masak wishes to express his support
19:48 * Util too
19:48 pmichaud thanks, everyone :)
19:49 pmichaud patience and prayers have always been extremely helpful to us :)
19:50 jnthn pmichaud: Best wishes with everything.
19:54 tadzik All best for You
