02:21 dukeleto davidfetter: how did it go?
02:21 dukeleto davidfetter: can you post your slides when you get a chance? and/or add them to the site :)
02:32 davidfetter dukeleto, the meeting went well, but the live demo was teh sux0rz
02:32 davidfetter slides really aren't worth posting. there are 5 of them :P
02:33 davidfetter turns out the meeting was jammed with perl n00bs
02:34 davidfetter not a bad thing, but not the time to get into the nitty-gritty of where rakudo* can live :P
02:47 darbelo joined #plparrot
02:56 dukeleto davidfetter: gotcha
13:55 davidfetter joined #plparrot
15:19 justatheory joined #plparrot
16:41 davidfetter joined #plparrot
19:23 dukeleto we should attempt to make a .deb for PL/Parrot. anybody up for it?
19:24 dukeleto http://github.com/leto/plparrot/issues#issue/15
19:24 dukeleto this would make it much easier for people to try PL/Parrot
19:24 * davidfetter asks one channel over ( #postgresql ) for help
19:36 davidfetter dukeleto, well, i could start with something i *do* know something about, namely RPMs for fedora, etc. :)
19:37 davidfetter what sources does it need apart from pl/parrot?
19:38 davidfetter oh, and where's the canonical version-named tarball? or is that something we need to arrange 1st?
19:41 dukeleto davidfetter: rpms would be greately appreciated too
19:41 dukeleto davidfetter: i guess we don't have a canonical version-named tarball, but we can fix that
19:41 davidfetter is there some structure for sending those out, dukeleto ?
19:41 davidfetter as in on github
19:42 davidfetter looks like i conned^H^H^Hvinced dim over in #postgresql to do it monday :)
19:42 davidfetter it == debian
19:42 davidfetter *sigh*
19:42 davidfetter at some point, we'll have to do this for windows :P
19:43 * davidfetter looking forward to this with at best tepid anticipation
19:44 * davidfetter explores github for this capability
19:46 dukeleto davidfetter: github will provide a place to put our tarballs
19:47 davidfetter but it doesn't have "publish version 0.1.2 ?"
19:49 dukeleto davidfetter: i don't know, they keep adding features
19:49 * davidfetter digs
19:49 dukeleto davidfetter: http://github.com/leto/plparrot/downloads
19:49 davidfetter btw, #postgresql is pretty friendly
19:49 dukeleto that link has a "upload new file"
19:49 davidfetter right
19:54 dukeleto WOW: http://try.rakudo.org/shell
19:54 dukeleto Very cool.
19:54 davidfetter :)
19:58 davidfetter um, does git provide any such capability by itself?
19:58 davidfetter i mean sha1 hashes are all well and good, but they communicate something *very* different from "plparrot 0.2.3"
20:02 dukeleto davidfetter: tags
20:02 dukeleto davidfetter: you can git tag a sha1 with version numbers
20:03 davidfetter are we at a point where we can do that?
20:06 dukeleto davidfetter: what do you mean?
20:06 dukeleto davidfetter: are you asking "should we tag a version 0.01 ?"
20:06 dukeleto i guess we might as well
20:06 davidfetter yes
20:06 davidfetter w00t!
20:08 dukeleto davidfetter: i just tagged 9964752 as 0.01
20:08 dukeleto good a time as ever
20:08 davidfetter :)
20:09 davidfetter ok, so how do i get a tarball from that?
20:15 * davidfetter finds git archive
20:16 davidfetter hrm. i hear the cool kids are using .xz instead of .bz2 or .gz
20:16 davidfetter is this common enough to make our tarballs this way?
20:17 dukeleto i haven't seen .xz
20:17 * dukeleto goes to lunch, be back later
20:17 davidfetter bon appetit, dukeleto :)
