13:26 choroba started working on my March assignment
13:26 choroba it seems weird
13:26 choroba http://www.cpantesters.org/cpan/report/d6acc61c-f1d0-11e4-8f15-9663062ccc87
13:26 choroba I'm able to reproduce the problems under 5.8.8
13:27 choroba I reduced it to http://fpaste.scsys.co.uk/507620
13:28 choroba It doesn't fail under other Perl versions
13:28 choroba Adding \s{0} before the $ makes it pass
13:29 choroba but I'm not sure it's a good fix
13:36 choroba it seems the bug only happens when the regex is stored in a variable
13:37 choroba http://paste.scsys.co.uk/507621
14:13 choroba simplified to http://paste.scsys.co.uk/507622
14:32 choroba https://github.com/bowman/Plack-Middleware-ReverseProxyPath/pull/2
16:08 gryphon joined #pr-challenge
18:53 choroba joined #pr-challenge
18:54 choroba and if they don't like it, there's always https://github.com/bowman/Plack-Middleware-ReverseProxyPath/pull/3
19:43 neilb joined #pr-challenge
21:06 ether choroba: I can tell you exactly what that problem is
21:07 ether it's the same as fixed here: https://github.com/avar/dist-zilla-plugin-makemaker-awesome/commit/183550f4e96d48eb4e5932918080707574ef317f
21:07 ether it's in perl5101delta
21:07 choroba ah thanks
21:08 choroba "TODO" sounds like there will be a fix later
21:09 ether it's cool that you found a workaround
21:12 choroba it's a hack, but the behaviour of \s{0} in 5.8.8 is certainly not going to change, right?
21:16 ether yep
21:16 ether https://github.com/avar/dist-zilla-plugin-makemaker-awesome/commit/a409a8e81035c10967b0cb9a1ab4598c05f086b7
21:16 ether choroba++
21:17 choroba someone reported it worked in 5.8.9
21:18 choroba but it's not that important as the workaround works there, too
21:18 choroba I don't have 5.8.9 installed ATM
21:28 ether the workaround works in 5.8.9
21:34 choroba no, the point is it's not needed in 5.8.9
22:02 ether ah interesting, you're right
22:02 ether so, fixed in 5.010 and 5.8.9 as well
22:02 ether not too surprising since 5.8.9 is way younger than the versions around it
