16:41 tadzik pre-report, will probably attend only a small amount of the actual #phasers:
16:41 tadzik – Released London
16:42 tadzik - added some fixes to Rakudo necessary for Panda
16:42 tadzik - fixed Panda for nom
16:43 tadzik - wrote a panda implementation for massive testing of modules, https://gist.github.com/1379175
16:43 tadzik - results in https://gist.github.com/1379484 and on the wiki page: https://github.com/perl6/ecosystem/wiki/State-of-modules-on-nom
16:45 tadzik - created a wiki page for Google Code-In: https://github.com/perl6/ecosystem/wiki/Google-Code-In I'd like to discuss it a bit more, few people are interested and I think it's a nice opportunity to get some fresh flesh and some slav^Wvolunteers to work on things like docs, tests, modules etc
16:45 tadzik EOR
16:59 sorear DID: nada, been busy.
16:59 sorear WILL DO: lots of S05 stuff to regain my lead on nqp ;)
16:59 sorear EOR
17:01 moritz did: travel to Norway and back again. Nothing Perl 6 related, except for one or two commits over ssh :-)
17:17 Util tadzik++ # State-of-modules-on-nom
17:17 Util Pre-report: No progress; blocked by $WORK and holiday chaos.
17:17 Util Will be worse for next 2 weeks, but will work on 5-to-6 translator if possible.
17:17 Util EOR
17:29 jnthn In the last week...
17:29 jnthn * Got NFA branch merged, bringing NFA-driven protoregex support to nom
17:29 jnthn * Did some exra bits on the NFA engine
17:29 jnthn * Fixed bigint boolification
17:29 jnthn * Got ~ syntax in regexes implemented
17:29 jnthn * Got % and %% syntax in regexes implemented
17:29 jnthn * Implemented <before ...> and <after ...>
17:29 jnthn * Fixed action method invocation bug
17:30 jnthn * Tracked down a hard to find :r/capturing bug and fixed it
17:30 jnthn * Cached NFAs, for a performance win
17:30 jnthn * Good error on illegally reversed character ranges
17:30 jnthn * Worked with diakopter++ on various regex bits, including backslash sequences in character classes
17:30 jnthn * Optimized match object construction
17:30 jnthn * Unbusted signatured rules
17:30 jnthn * Made substr handle *-1 style things
17:30 jnthn * Got dyncall-0.6 bundled/building in an NQP branch
17:30 jnthn * Started work on new native call support; so far it can do calls involving integer and float types
17:30 jnthn In the next week...
17:30 sorear see, _jnthn_ was productive.
17:30 jnthn * Focus on native call stuff
17:30 jnthn * Probably also some work on type-y/native-y stuff in Rakudo
17:30 jnthn EOR
17:31 jnthn ...that's not what my $dayjob said.
17:32 jnthn (It's fine. :-))
17:34 moritz jnthn++
17:34 sorear so, isn't the meeting supposed to start in -4?
17:34 * sorear wonders where our mäsak is
17:34 moritz so, any more reports?
17:34 moritz or questions?
17:34 moritz I have one topic I'd like to discuss...
17:35 moritz http://news.perlfoundation.org/2011/11/hague-grant-application-plperl.html
17:35 moritz we should comment on that
17:35 moritz somebody should write about the underlying changes that nom brought, and that "making it work on nom" is probably much more than just a bug fix
17:36 moritz any volunteers? or should I do it?
17:36 sorear pl/perl6 is a Parrot thing more than a Rakudo thing
17:36 jnthn sorear: He may not make it today...
17:36 sorear jnthn: you know why?
17:37 moritz sorear: well, I'm not sure if that's true anymore when interfacing Rakudo
17:37 sorear s/^/... sounds like /
17:37 jnthn sorear: Just guessing based on what I know of $dayjob-schedule :)
17:38 tadzik I'd like to talk about GCI
17:39 moritz I take the lack of volunteers as an indication that I should do it :-)
17:39 moritz tadzik: do talk :-)
17:39 jnthn moritz: I'm just reading it properly now...
17:39 moritz I plan to come up with some ideas in the next two days
17:39 tadzik who wants to get involved? :) I don't want to be the only mentor, those students are quite active :P
17:39 tadzik moritz: you seen the wiki page?
17:39 moritz I'll be mentoring too
17:39 moritz tadzik: no. Where is it?
17:40 tadzik moritz: https://github.com/perl6/ecosystem/wiki/Google-Code-In
17:41 Util jnthn: where do dyncall and "new native call support" live? (as in Repo location)
17:41 jnthn moritz: Yeah, agree with your assessment
17:41 jnthn Util: nci branch of the nqp repo.
17:42 Util jnthn: thx
17:42 jnthn Util: Tonight or (more likely) tomorrow I'll also start to update the NativeCall.pm.
17:42 jnthn Where "update" means "start over"
17:42 jnthn That lives in a repo on github.
17:42 moritz in the nqp repo, iirc
17:43 moritz branch master
17:43 jnthn moritz: No, not that
17:43 jnthn :)
17:43 jnthn https://github.com/jnthn/zavolaj # here
17:43 Util zavolaj?
17:43 sorear moritz: I'm not volunteering because of very little knowledge of {Parrot,PgSQL}
17:43 moritz sorear: ok
17:43 jnthn Util: See readme :)
17:44 jnthn Though the latest work should render some of the bad bits of the readme untrue :)
17:44 tadzik moritz: re GCI, I'd like to start adding tasks this weekend
17:44 tadzik moritz: if you have any more ideas please add them to the wiki
17:45 * sorear is doing prep work for the Monday release now
17:45 Util I hope to mentor in the next GSOC, but I cannot block off time for this year's GCI. :(
17:45 Util will look at wiki, though
17:46 moritz tadzik: who manages GCI on the TPF part?
17:46 tadzik moritz: rafl and pj iirc
17:58 * moritz phases out
19:17 Util joined #phasers
20:07 tadzik joined #phasers
