17:41 dukeleto blarg
17:42 davidfetter what seems to be the problem, your grace?
17:42 dukeleto nothin'
17:42 dukeleto davidfetter: wazzup?
17:44 davidfetter oh, just getting ready for some parrotry this weekend
17:44 davidfetter all that packaging i haven't gotten around to, e.g.
17:45 * dukeleto still plans on learning how to make a .deb
17:46 dukeleto davidfetter: what are you planning on?
17:46 davidfetter dukeleto, RPMs for fedora, etc.
17:47 davidfetter dukeleto, and probably a walk through the docs, looking for mismatches with current reality
17:47 davidfetter for example, the README refers to 0.01
17:47 dukeleto indeed
17:47 dukeleto we need to figure out what the most important things to work on are
17:48 dukeleto i tried to do something useful last night, but failed
17:48 dukeleto PL/Parrot does work with the latest master branch of Rakudo, so that is something
17:48 dukeleto always nice to update Rakudo and run the test suite and still have it pass :)
17:49 dukeleto we need a nice use case/example site/reason to use PL/Parrot or PL/Perl6
17:54 davidfetter well, what's a reason to use perl6?
17:55 davidfetter until the access control thing goes into parrot, i'm not coming up with a super-compelling reason to use pl/parrot on its own
18:03 dukeleto i think using Perl 6 grammars is the killer app
18:04 dukeleto i found a bug with using global grammars, tho
18:04 dukeleto i made a branch for it
18:04 dukeleto supposedly, if you don't use "my grammar", grammars are package scoped, but if I try to use an already-created grammar, i get a coredump, deep in parrot internals
18:09 davidfetter my grammar brings all the boys to the yard
18:14 * davidfetter guesses dukeleto is not much of a kelis fan
18:15 dukeleto davidfetter: i get the reference :)
18:16 * davidfetter doesn't know whether to be pleased or disappointed
19:51 justatheory joined #plparrot

23:38 All is now known as davidfetter
