13:02 vroom joined #pr-challenge
13:04 ambs more than just replacing the assignment, assigning a specially useful module for me!
13:06 ambs (and you know you need more coffee when you use ‘my $shift = self;
13:08 itcharlie joined #pr-challenge
13:08 itcharlie left #pr-challenge
13:10 neilb ambs: that’s luck more than judgement, but I’ll take it :-)
13:10 ambs neilb: :)
13:20 neilb I dodged the bullet again, and didn’t get an XS module or something crazy like SOAP-WSDL :-)
13:22 ambs lucky
13:22 ambs :D

14:38 Lee well it looks like i may have adopted 4 new modules thanks to this months PRC :D
14:39 thrig they followed me home!
14:44 Lee wasn't the plan, but i'd rather adopt that have stuff sat rotting on cpan/gihub
14:44 Lee *than
14:48 neilb Lee++
14:49 * Lee wonders how github issues are handled when they change the fork source
14:49 Lee probably not handled
16:11 tgy joined #pr-challenge

16:26 leont Are there any guidelines for giving PRC feedback?

18:38 neilb leont: feedback on the PRC itself, or feedback to someone submitting a PR, or something else? :-)
18:38 leont The second
18:39 leont Got a very late submission, that contains lots of issues that could have been prevented if he had communicated before sending the PR.
18:40 leont He's adding tests in such a way that the coverage statistics look nice, but most of it isn't testing the really relevant things
18:47 neilb leont: back in a bit — it’s bedtime (not mine)
19:39 fuzzix joined #pr-challenge
19:58 neilb leont: I’ll add something to the existing advice, suggesting that they send a message to the author early in the month, even if they don’t plan on working on it for a while.
20:02 neilb We don’t have any guidelines for giving advice to people giving PRs. Sounds like we should. I’m happy to start working on some, so if you want to send me any comments, I’ll try and factor them in. I should also say something like “better a good PR later, rather than a rushed PR which isn’t so good, just to hit the end-of-the-month deadline”
20:05 BooK neilb: did everyone get their assignment?
20:05 neilb BooK: everyone who had finished all previous assignments, yes.
20:06 BooK neilb: rushed PR, sounds like me
20:06 neilb And the handful of people who joined in time for the May round
20:07 BooK I don't thinl I received mine
20:37 neilb BooK: well, you’ve still got an April assignment in hand
20:38 BooK do I? I'm so late with everything I lost track
20:54 ether looks like some poor sap is getting stuck with Module-Install this month :)
21:18 choroba joined #pr-challenge
21:18 choroba Still no PR for April. I have a new issue, though: https://github.com/karupanerura/p5-AnyEvent-ForkManager/issues/3
21:20 choroba BTW, does the PR have to be for the assigned repo? I mean, it seems the problem is in Test::ForkShared, so if I were able to fix it, I would helped AnyEvent::ForkManager, too
21:38 bjakubski I believe that PR has to be direclty against assigned distribution
21:39 boreas joined #pr-challenge
21:41 * PerlJam believes that any PR that helps the assigned module should count (even if it is for a different repo).
21:41 PerlJam (but that's just MHO)
21:43 bjakubski choroba: maybe add travis CI?
21:43 Zoffix left #pr-challenge
21:44 choroba bjakubski: that's easy and doable, thanks for the idea
21:46 leont Nothing has to be, the real goal is to contribute to the ecosystem, not to "win" a challenge
21:46 * thrig ferments leont
21:47 leont I'd like to postpone that by a few decades if you don't mind :-p
21:47 PerlJam leont: bits of you are probably fermenting right now anyway
21:48 leont I consider that part of the meal I ate, not part of me just yet!
21:49 * leont is reminded of the Gaia thing in Asimov's Foundation series, where the entire planet was an organism so the things you are were part of you too and stuff
21:49 bjakubski I actually learned that travis-ci for github exists thanks to PR challenge
21:49 thrig he totally ripped that off from Avatar
