04:19 sorear did: committed less than 51% of the week's work on Niecza for the first time. moritz++ mberends++
04:20 sorear also none of what I did was visible; just minor refactorings
04:20 sorear v4 is unlikely to run yapsi or support multi dispatch; I have far fewer tuits than expected
04:20 sorear EOR
14:13 [particle]1 is now known as [particle]
16:49 diakopter did: less than nothing... EO
16:50 moritz_ diakopter: you destroyed Perl 6 code? :-)

18:58 Util Pre-report:
18:58 Util * Done: Resolved some Parrot Coverity issues.
18:58 Util * Plan to do: Improve R* .dmg and publish in R*'s Downloads section of GitHub.
18:58 Util EOR
19:00 mberends the UTC clock strikes 19:00
19:02 Util o/
19:02 mberends Report:
19:02 mberends did one small commit to Niecza, will increase that rate in the coming months
19:04 mberends introduced a more portable timer function into Rakudo Test.pm, only to find that it sapped performance, so later reverted it to the more efficient pir::time__N version
19:05 mberends the value in that (how I get to keep the Karma) is that Test.pm now documents something *not* to do.
19:06 mberends have plans (but no progress) to continue working on 6model/JVM, based on the Jasmin assembler instead of generating Java source code.
19:07 mberends on this last project, any volunteers to share that workload would be welcome. I think Somebody was in #perl6 a few days ago talking about that, but did not get in touch,
19:08 mberends there certainly seems to be a consistent level of interest in having a 6model/JVM :)
19:08 mberends .EOR
19:10 mberends Would anyone like to say something?  Otherwise we close this meeting in (almost?) record time.
19:11 Util Have you worked in Jasmin assembler before? What made you eschew Java source code?
19:12 mberends it was fairly simple
19:12 mberends to emit executable instructions for certain of the 6model flow control structures, the C# implementation made use of goto statements.
19:12 tadzik nothing to report I'm afraid, apart of the bloggingz
19:14 mberends Java (the language) has no goto statement, but JVM (the VM) does, and you need assembler or bytecode to make the JVM do that.
19:15 Util I see. Thanks! EOQ
19:15 mberends and no, I have never worked with Jasmin before, so there is another learning curve to deal with.
19:16 mberends other assembly languages are fine with me, also it is new (but nice) to write programs that write programs...
19:30 Util Last call for other reports... Bueller? Bueller?
19:32 Util I encourage late arrivals to post reports for async reading.
19:32 Util We are adjourned.
19:32 mberends ok, bye from #phasers until next week o/
19:32 mberends left #phasers
19:42 [Coke] Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.
20:14 Util Thank you, Coke.
20:14 [Coke] No problem whatsoever!
20:17 colomon post-report: Did nothing of p6 interest in the last week.  Plan
20:18 colomon Plan: hope to bisect to investigate slowdowns, but not optimistic about actually finding time to tackle that.
20:18 colomon EOR
