15:49 jnthn Probably will make at least the first bit of #phasers...here's a preport
15:49 jnthn * Some 6model design work, especially on representing arrays and generalizing the notion of representations beyond just objects
15:49 jnthn * A refactor to bring things in line with the design
15:49 jnthn * Worked on CArray representation
15:49 jnthn * Made TypeObj but SomeRole now work
15:49 jnthn * Fixed a couple of bugs in parametric roel handling
15:49 jnthn * Implemented typed hashes
15:49 jnthn * Partially implemented types arrays
15:49 jnthn * Made it so only a Callable can be assgined to a my &foo
15:49 jnthn * Refactored type handling; we now enforce sigil-implied roles on binding
15:49 jnthn * Ported .WALK, getc, IO.x from ng and enabled various tests
15:49 jnthn * Implemtned ff, ^ff, ff^ and ^ff^
15:49 jnthn * Merged nom version of Zavolaj into master, fixed win32 example, updated todo list
15:49 jnthn Plans
15:50 jnthn * Got a lot of $dayjob things over the next week, which may limit how much Perl 6 time I get
15:50 jnthn * Get CArray usable in NativeCall
15:50 jnthn * Work on NativeCall tests
15:50 jnthn * Resolve more regressions and bugs in nom
15:50 jnthn Worries
15:50 jnthn * Not sure I'll have net access from 21st to just after Christmas. Certainly won't have a lot of time (family stuff). So really need to work out the nom/nomstar release in most senses before then.
15:50 jnthn * Also could do with volunteers for actually doing the releases
15:50 jnthn EOR
15:50 jnthn btw, I can probably give 17th, 18th and 20th over to Perl 6 things and not have distractions
15:50 jnthn Maybe next Tuesday also.
17:20 colomon joined #phasers
17:28 colomon pre-report:
17:28 colomon * Did Day One Advent post
17:28 colomon * Added crude but usable user interface to Gtk-mandelbrot
17:28 colomon * Cheered wildly when sorear++ added threading to Gtk-mandelbrot
17:28 colomon * Pointed out "is cached" as a useful traits demo
17:28 colomon * Implemented "is symmetric" in nom with much help from jnthn++
17:28 colomon * Started to add chord support to ABC
17:28 colomon * Wrote emergency Advent post, to use when we don't otherwise have a post
17:28 colomon * In the process, got rounders.t fully working in Niecza, and added more tests to it
17:28 colomon plan:
17:28 colomon * Continue polishing Gtk-mandelbrot (improving threading performance would be a big plus)
17:28 colomon * Write Advent post on Gtk-mandelbrot
17:28 colomon * Try to figure out how to output chords into Lilypond (it's incredibly awkward)
17:28 colomon EOR
17:31 colomon o/
17:36 jnthn o/
17:37 jnthn Wow, lonely here tonight.
17:38 benabik joined #phasers
17:39 jnthn Well, if there's nothing to discuss, it means I can go for dinner sooner ;)
17:39 colomon so, I didn't see your pre-report, but it's safe to assume you rocked.  jnthn++
17:40 colomon are we really ready for nomstar?
17:40 colomon (backlogged)
17:42 * colomon doesn't have any idea how the current spectest passes compare to b's
17:42 colomon we certainly do seem to be doing a lot of cool stuff we weren't before, on the pro side
17:42 jnthn colomon: Panda works again, aside from some test fails get in the way of its bootstrap. NativeCall almost works enough for everything it did before, which'll mean we get mysql back. We're within 1000 spectests of before. And there's 2 weeks of development time left.
17:43 colomon any idea what's needed to fix the bootstrap?
17:43 jnthn Or close to being within 1000 or so
17:43 jnthn colomon: stop Test::Mock failing its tests :)
17:43 jnthn colomon: Panda itself actually works.
17:45 colomon tadzik++
17:46 felher joined #phasers
17:50 tadzik hello
17:51 colomon \o
17:52 jnthn o/ tadzik
17:52 tadzik report: won the battle of Austerlitz; plans: advent blogging, random hacks in random time, nothing in particular
17:54 diakopter joined #phasers
17:56 jnthn .oO( O(random) )
17:59 tadzik possibly some Dancer-related stuff
17:59 jnthn OK, seems its really quiet here today, and I'm hungry, so I'm gonna go nom :)
17:59 tadzik I feel a subtle need for that :)
17:59 tadzik from the outside world
17:59 * PerlJam hungers too
17:59 jnthn ...are you talking about Dancer or food? :)
17:59 tadzik Dancer, Dancer
18:00 tadzik speaking of food, I'll be home no sooner than 1.5 hours :/
18:00 tadzik (lectures on 6 PM)--
18:00 * jnthn will be home in about 2 days...
18:00 jnthn ;)
18:00 tadzik :)
18:00 jnthn I let my students go before 6 PM. :)
18:00 jnthn ok, food time. bbl
18:39 benabik left #phasers
18:50 sorear helo
18:51 [Coke] o/
20:50 * moritz peeks in for a short moment
20:51 moritz I've looked at random nom regressions in roast
20:51 moritz and foud a few common causes for most of the failures
20:51 moritz s/most/some/
20:51 moritz regex: combinations of % and :s
20:51 moritz regex: :i
20:51 moritz custom operators
20:51 moritz chained series operators
20:51 moritz take [1, 2] flattens
20:51 moritz missing i Complex constant
20:51 moritz autovivification
20:51 moritz presence of protos does not imply 'multi' on un-qualified subs
20:52 * moritz goes to bed
20:52 jnthn moritz: thanks
