00:16 Zoffix RE http://cpan-prc.org/hitlist.html ... couldn't we just send a "friendly memo" to all the dist authors telling them we're doing CPAN PR Challenge and if they want their distro considered they should get a git repo?
00:24 Zoffix My last distro on the hitlist (POE-Component-NonBlockingWrapper-Base) can now be dumped... Just made a repo for it
02:22 ether Zoffix: yes you can :)
02:33 Su-Shee_ joined #pr-challenge
02:38 Zoffix Well, I got no pull in the community.. It'd be best to come from someone well-known and respected.
02:39 Zoffix More people would bother creating repos then.

22:01 Zoffix jamessan, sure, but I doubt every single dist on the hit list isn't on github because the author doesn't use git. Moreover, it will help promote CPAN PR Challenge. The only way I found out it is because someone was assigned one of my dists and was asking questions...
22:03 neilb Zoffix, so you’re not subscribed to Perl Weekly, and don’t look at blogs.perl.org then? :-)
22:05 Zoffix neilb, nope: http://i.imgur.com/qbRZoMR.png
22:05 Zoffix I have enough emails for years to come.. and that doesn't even include the 300 unread emails I see in my local perl mongers group :)
22:06 neilb ha!
22:08 thrig http://72.14.189.113/tmp/mbzero.png
22:11 Zoffix thrig, you're just unpopular :)
22:11 Zoffix :P
22:15 fuzzix "Mark All as Read" - productivity hack ;)
22:15 Zoffix :D

22:32 Zoffix Are you kidding me?! Spent 15 minutes writing my comment on http://blogs.perl.org/users/dean/2015/03/firefox-is-dead-or-something.html and I get "An error occurred: Permission denied." from http://blogs.perl.org/mt/mt-comments.fcgi >_<
22:32 Zoffix neilb, see what happens when I look at blogs.perl.org? :D
22:33 neilb Sigh. sorry. You previewed your comment first, I bet? If you preview a comment first, it will fail. Edit the comment elsewhere, then just post it without review, and it will (should…) work
22:34 Zoffix Ah
22:34 neilb It’s a known bug
22:37 Zoffix Hm. No luck.
22:37 kid51 neilb: I wish *I* had known about that bug months ago.  I've had zilch luck posting to blogs.perl.org in the last year :-(
22:38 Zoffix I even tried to clear all cookies.. Then I tried to login with my username, but MovableType told me my password was invalid.. I reset the password, logged in again, but still can't comment.
22:38 neilb bummer.
22:41 Zoffix *phew* posted http://blogs.perl.org/users/dean/2015/03/firefox-is-dead-or-something.html
22:41 Zoffix Had to "sign in with my google account" because I've no idea how to create a new user or what my Open ID URL is lol
22:44 neilb Here’s the bug: https://github.com/blogs-perl-org/blogs.perl.org/issues/196
22:44 neilb there are plenty of other bugs too, which you can see there
22:45 Zoffix Yeah... 95 Issues and last authored in 2013 :(

23:03 kid51 Ego Deflation Department:  I go to that github link neilb just posted ...
23:04 kid51 I navigate to the Issues page.
23:04 kid51 Down at the bottom, I see this:
23:04 kid51 ProTip! Ears burning? Get @jkeenan mentions with mentions:jkeenan.
23:04 kid51 Consumed with vanity, I click on 'mentions:jkeenan'.
23:04 kid51 I get a page whose main headline is:
23:04 kid51 "Bummer, we couldn't find anything."
23:05 neilb :-)
23:17 ether :(
23:18 ether I thought you were kid51 on github
23:18 kid51 No, that's pretty much an IRC-only identity
23:25 ether you're not changing your nick each year are you? :)
23:31 kid51 I only change my nick when I ...
23:34 ether :)
