17:43 colomon ultra-quick-report: $work has eaten my brain and crushed my spirit.  but I'm playing hooky today and working on eliminating the TrigTestSupport module from t/spec/packages, as 3/4s of it was obsolete cruft anyway.   EOR
17:49 masak colomon++
17:59 PerlJam colomon++  (sorry to hear about your brain and spirit, we'll try to find new ones for you :)

18:50 colomon hacking weekend?
18:54 masak upcoming one.

18:59 benabik joined #phasers
19:00 jnthn Or making nom conform to modules... :)
19:00 masak o/
19:00 Util o/
19:01 jnthn o/
19:01 colomon \o
19:04 masak shall we begin? any more reports?
19:04 jnthn Well, unreport :)
19:04 jnthn I went on vacation.
19:04 jnthn Didn't do nom hacking, 'cus I didn't even take a laptop :)
19:05 masak o.O
19:05 jnthn I did read The art of the metaobject protocol though.
19:05 masak was it good?
19:05 kboga joined #phasers
19:05 jnthn Had read chunks of it before, but was nice to read it "in full"
19:05 jnthn It was interesting, especially given last time I read chunks of it was when I was planning 6model.
19:06 jnthn I found it pretty light reading, though I expect that's...not a common experience. :)
19:06 jnthn The section on bootstrapping was very ad-hoc...I'd hoped for more ideas.
19:07 jnthn I did very much like the notion of method combinators that CLOS has though.
19:07 * [Coke] helped out moritz with the feature doc, and tried to make a script to update the error messages in the spectest file. Not quite done on that.
19:07 jnthn We don't have such a thing in Perl 6, but they'd perhaps give us a way to deal with those "how does a role provide a BUILD for just its attributes".
19:07 jnthn Anyway, I'm back, I have time for nom hacking, and I'll be doing some. :)
19:08 masak \o/
19:08 jnthn And yes, will be around for the weekend module hackin'
19:09 colomon This is one of two weekends until September when I will not be extremely busy / gone outright.  So I may sneak in some module hacking as well.  As long as I'm not on the run from the law for having killed one of my $work customers...
19:11 masak you killed him!? o.O
19:12 colomon masak: I haven't yet.  But I make no promises about by this weekend.
19:12 * masak gives colomon a preemptive hug
19:16 masak that's all reports? anyone have any questions?
19:16 masak or anything else to bring up?
19:16 tadzik report: a good bit of vacationing (masak++!), laptop is any<broken working>, depending on its mood, notmuch work done
19:17 tadzik plans: .WHY, catching up
19:17 masak tadzik++ # excellent guide through the Polish rainforests :)
19:18 jnthn Did you [see|eat] any beese?
19:18 masak we drank a few :P
19:19 jnthn No, no, I meant the...oh, orka. :P
19:19 masak We didn't see any orcas, except on screen.
19:20 jnthn :P
19:24 masak that seems to be it for today.
19:24 masak thanks, everone. keep up the good work!
19:25 jnthn .oO( going on vacation is considered good work? Gee...I should just do that all the time :) )
19:31 sorear o/
19:32 sorear DID: released niecza v8 at 3am.  this was a mistake :/
19:32 sorear EOR
19:35 masak sorear: why was it a mistake?
19:35 sorear masak: I woke up to three people complaining of build problems
19:38 masak :/
19:56 colomon sorear: that's a good sign of how many people are using your software.  usually when I release my $work software, it's at least a day before someone reports a build bug...
20:42 TimToady good reason not to release on friday :)
20:43 [Coke] friday, friday....
