13:45 Lee une question - would it be sensible to raise an issue for those repos that are migrated to github but don't have the bugtracker pointed there, and in the process suggest using David Golden's RT to github script to migrate issues?
13:45 Lee whilst this isn't strictly a PR, i think it would be useful
13:46 Lee (i've just been looking at TT, which has 75 issues on RT, and < 10 on github)
13:48 alh Some people prefer RT over github I think; and perhaps some just aren't aware moving the tracker is an option
13:48 alh I'd pose it as a question and see who bites
13:52 Lee true, especially those authors with many dists
13:53 alh You *may* get some angry responses; it's a possibility, so be forewarned :)
13:53 Lee :)
13:53 Lee if they've pointed the repo at github then i'd hope they'd be more inclined to migrate issues

14:07 fuzzix I forgot to set Github as my bugtracker, was taken surprise by an RT ticket one day. I kinda prefer it to Github - competent bug tracking with email alone isn't something Github does well.
14:07 * kid51 agrees with fuzzix
14:10 fuzzix I once maintained a RT setup for an org who had 10s of thousands of lines of in-house customisations to make it act like an older system. This broke email integration radically, you had to use the web frontend.
14:10 fuzzix I say "maintained", I mean deleted.
14:12 Lee sounds fun...
14:12 Lee i think github's issue tracking via e-mail has improved? i don't pay much attention to it though, so could be wrong
14:12 Lee but can understand the use case
14:18 fuzzix Yeah, so as with any maintenance job you have that "Kill it with fire! Rewrite!" instinct, the one you learned to ignore years ago. In this instance, we eventually went that way.
14:20 fuzzix To give you a keyhole glimpse into it, there was a ruby on rails app latched onto it.
14:20 fuzzix Also, lots of comments complaining about how Perl isn't Rails :)
14:21 fuzzix # $$?! OMG I never read perlref!
14:21 * fuzzix calms down and goes for a walk

15:28 BooK I for one am publishing the code on github, but managing issues on RT (although I'll also take github issues, since they can't be disabled)
15:30 haarg BooK: issues can be disabled, push requests can't

20:23 neilb looks like today’s article may prompt a few more participants. A massive 2 more this evening already!
20:27 neilb 3
20:38 ether heh
20:38 ether what article?
20:45 vroom joined #pr-challenge
20:47 neilb ether: http://www.techworld.com/news/careers/perl-challenge-designed-keep-programming-language-very-much-alive-3599824/
20:48 neilb lesson I learned: casually mentioning something in email to a journalist can easily lead to an article, where they’ll quote that email you didn’t put much thought into :-/
20:50 ether ah, is that the same author as the article that was a big ad for booking?
20:50 * ether recalls you were quoted in that one

21:50 ether neilb: can I safely assume that the ETHER dist assigned for March will be Moose?
21:50 ether if so, I won't send you some -1 and +1 scoring updates until later.

22:12 neilb ether: do you want me to block Moose from being assigned?
22:13 ether no, on the contrary, I'm quite happy for Moose to being assigned.
22:13 ether and if it is, then I don't need to make any adjustments yet
22:13 * ether has been holding out to see your scoring algorithm :)
22:13 * ether already wrote up a ticket to give to the assignee (it's documentation-oriented)
