18:30 moritz_ sorry, I have to run off real soon
18:30 moritz_ just in short
18:30 mberends ok
18:30 moritz_ 1) branch 'cool' ready for review and merge
18:31 moritz_ fails a few tests that bogusly assume that some builtiin types inherit directly from Any
18:31 moritz_ 2) Match stuff still blocking on review by pmichaud++
18:32 moritz_ apart from that, hacking on the book, applying patches and fixing up small things here and there
18:32 moritz_ will try to write some POD for Date.pm
18:32 moritz_ and maybe merge into spec
18:32 moritz_ that's it
18:33 mberends the book seems to be catching up, several testers of the code in it :)
18:33 mberends proto is blocked as you saw this morning
18:34 mberends going by masak's diagnosis, this Proxy bug may be serious
18:34 mberends I expect to have to make workarounds
18:35 mberends in general proto is making steady progress though, and on Win32 is also looking stable
18:36 mberends after proto sort-of works again, I want to do more with zavolaj
18:36 mberends not only MySQL client, but hopefully some graphic library access
18:37 mberends graphic output should be fairly simple, a GUI much harder because of the callbacks/events
18:37 mberends that's all from me
18:40 bkeeler My regex variable interp patch is still waiting on PM review
18:40 bkeeler I don't really have anything else
18:41 mberends ok, a record short meeting this week
18:47 [particle] is there anything you reed from the parrot folks before our 2.3 release next week?
18:48 mberends I think jnthn or sorear would need to be present to give a definitive answer. jnthn has just flown to a conference in Russia to deliver a presentation.
18:49 [particle] also, please start testing rakudo with master/head parrot and reporting failures, so they can be addressed in a timely manner.  parrot folks will be testing rakudo, but may not have the same compile/configure options, or see the same dark corners as the rakudo devs
18:49 sundar joined #rakudosketch
18:49 [particle] thank you for the response. if anyone needs to get info to the parrot team, please feel free to use me as a messenger.
18:49 mberends I would be interested in completion of some work plobsing was planning to do for NCCI
18:49 mberends *NCI
18:50 mberends something about generalizing the signatures of parameters and return types
18:50 mberends but I don't have the specifics to hand
18:51 mberends thanks [particle]
18:51 [particle] ok, i'll follow up on that.
18:52 [particle] also, from what i've seen, you should see even more (perhaps 9%) improvement in string-handling soon.  i don't yet know if that will happen before 2.3
18:53 mberends great! we have not bumped the parrot revision for a while now, still on 45386, although newer ones also seem to work currently
19:01 colomon joined #rakudosketch
19:01 colomon o/
19:01 mberends o/
19:02 bkeeler \o
19:02 spinclad o/
19:06 mberends all: please think of additional input to http://wiki.github.com/rakudo/rakudo/whats-going-into-rakudo
19:17 * moritz_ back
19:17 moritz_ I guess I've missed all the meeting, right?
19:18 mberends we all waited for you to return ;)
19:19 [particle] nobody has left the room, anyway
19:21 moritz_ anyway, there's not much more I need to discuss
19:21 moritz_ unless with jnthn or pmichaud
19:27 CokeBot9000 joined #rakudosketch
