00:47 Tordek so, I just got an e-mail asking if I want to avoid XS distros... I have no idea what XS is, but if I'm reading it right (it involves modules in C), then I'm OK with that
00:47 Tordek or is there more to it?
00:47 G_SabinoMullane XS is a glue between C and Perl
00:50 G_SabinoMullane man perlxs for more details.
00:59 genehack it's probably one of those, "if you're not sure what it is, you don't want it" type deals, tbh

10:11 neilb Tordek: sorry, I should have put some more explanatory text in that email!
10:42 neilb heh, from my inbox I should have made the option “happy to get XS”, rather than “don’t want XS”, as that would have required the smallest delta :-)
11:07 davorg No-one wants XS? :-)
11:16 neilb actually a couple of people have said “sure, I’ll take XS”. But most people? Not so much :-)
11:18 ambs I was almost answering, Just XS, please
11:19 ambs now the question is, what the heck are IRI?
11:21 neilb ambs: in what context?
11:22 kid51 joined #pr-challenge
11:25 gansh joined #pr-challenge
11:31 ambs neilb: a module to manage IRI, Internationalized Resource Identifiers
11:31 ambs my guess, URI with non-ascii chars
11:32 neilb ambs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internationalized_resource_identifier
11:33 ambs my guess was correct.
12:13 ambs ah, how I love dependencies
12:13 ambs IRI uses a Module::Install plugin that.. depends on IRI
12:14 ambs getting to the question, who born first, the egg or the chicken
12:42 ambs neilb: can you mark me as done for february? (2 PRs, just for starters)
13:13 gansh joined #pr-challenge
13:36 neilb ambs: done!
13:38 ambs thank you!
13:44 * ambs is doing a log for this year PRC.
13:59 neilb ambs: a blog, or a personal log?
14:00 ambs for now, a personal log, so I can blog later.

16:39 Jayce^ neilb: how are you generating your 'notes on your distribution'. Mine gives a nice hint about a missing META.json, except the module on cpan does actually have one
16:40 neilb Jayce^: I’ve a DB where I’ve built up information about distributions from multiple sources. I noticed the META.* bug last night, and have a task on my todo list for this week to fix it.
16:42 Jayce^ if it helps, the META isn't in the github repo, just generated and part of the dist
