18:44 ambs ok, PullRequest (aka svn diff) sent for Term::ReadLine::Gnu
18:46 pink_mist yay, my PRC from february was finally merged!
18:48 ambs \o/
18:49 ambs I think my last two PRs were not merged or commented at all :(

19:57 neilb_ The May assignments are now public: http://cpan-prc.org/may.html
19:59 leont Hah, you got me rjbs! :-p
19:59 ambs poor daleevans.

20:26 ether neilb_: I would be quite pleased for any of my dists that have been assigned in previous months to go back in the queue and reasssigned in later months
20:26 ether most of the big and problematic ones have already gone out, and they all need more work :)
20:27 ether neilb_: oh, but please take Sub-Name off the list. that one's tricky and very contentious, so not a good candidate for anyone not familiar with its code and usecases
20:44 ambs ether: :utf8 is deprecated?
20:44 ambs or not recommended? (I know it works :-))
20:45 ether :utf8 doesn't validate the octets; :encoding(UTF-8) does
20:45 ether so for output, it's better to validate
20:45 ether when reading, you may want to take whatever you get, but that can leave you vulnerable to weird edge case exploits
20:45 ambs ah, ok.
20:46 ambs was just curious
20:48 neilb_ ether: Sub-Name has been opted out of the challenge
20:49 ether danke!
20:50 neilb_ and I have on my list to decide the rules how how dists can be assigned for 2nd, 3rd times etc
20:50 ether maybe add a -1 to the score for every time it's already gone out?
20:50 ether so it will degrade down the list naturally, but still appear highly if it has a high score otherwise
20:50 ether or -0.5
20:51 ether maybe -0 if there was no successful PR last time :)
20:51 ambs - 0 seems cute
20:55 * ambs & #night
20:56 jevin joined #pr-challenge
20:56 neilb_ ether: yeah, something like that, but I think that for 2nd and subsequent time out there should be at least N issues.
20:57 ether so maybe change the scoring algorithm entirely for the second-and-subsequent times round?
20:58 neilb_ yeah, or maybe have it nearly the same, but with a gate
20:58 rvandam joined #pr-challenge
20:58 neilb_ and the half-life idea you mentioned
21:01 leont ether: it's more the other way around. For output :utf8 should be fine (unless your code does very naughty things), it's input where it's dangerous
21:02 ether hmm
21:03 ether yeah I guess if you're doing unicode->utf8 through the encoding layer, then it *has* to be valid utf8...
21:03 * ether has started simply doing :encoding(UTF-8) everywhere so I don't have to worry :)

21:34 choroba So, instead of solving the issue, I'll close my late April with 3 minor PRs: https://github.com/karupanerura/p5-AnyEvent-ForkManager/pulls
21:34 Zoffix Also good :)
21:35 leont Only way it can not be valid is when you've been playing with the UTF8 flag, or when you read unvalidated input
21:37 itcharlie joined #pr-challenge
21:39 choroba neilb_: So, I declare my April as "I'm done" with 3 PRs and ask for May.
21:39 neilb_ hai!
21:39 choroba my github username being the same as here
21:41 Peter joined #pr-challenge
21:42 choroba I really wanted to do more, but wasn't able. Debugging forks is still over my head :-(
21:43 thrig start with sporks?
21:43 pink_mist there is no spoon
21:43 pink_mist damn, purl not in here
21:44 choroba Whoa.
21:46 pink_mist thanks choroba :P
