17:31 mikemol Anyone very competent in Spanish, and comfortable in handling some stuff sent by an eager Spanish-only contributor?
17:32 mikemol I got an email I'm not entirely sure what to make of or how to appropriately respond.

18:14 sorear I wouldn't call myself "very" competent but I can read it pretty well
18:33 Mathnerd314 joined #rosettacode
18:51 sorear mikemol: ping
18:52 mikemol pong
18:52 mikemol Regarding the C++ code?
18:52 mikemol Yeah, it's pretty readable once you know the syntax.
18:52 mikemol But I imagine one could say the same about J or Perl. :)
18:52 sorear regarding the Spanish
18:52 * mikemol ducks
18:52 mikemol ah
18:52 sorear I don't know what you're talking about wrt. C+
18:52 sorear +
18:53 mikemol Someone's complaint about the lack of using 'using namespace std;' in the C++ examples, leading to a lot of 'std::' prefixes.
18:54 mikemol The trouble with the email is that I think the guy is going to need a conversation in how to get the code integrated properly with the site, but I don't think that conversation will work very well if the RC side of it is speaking in English.
18:55 sorear then you may need to keep looking; my ability to generate Spanish is quite limited
18:56 * mikemol nods

19:58 mwn3d_hawaii mikemol: I tried to field the C++ a bit. We may want to think about some style policies as the community grows.
19:59 mwn3d_hawaii I think its starting to get close to too big for self-governance
20:00 mikemol The first general problem with styles is that they can trample variances in code idiom. The second general problem with styles is that people get religious over them. I got flamed for using '  ' instead of '    ' in some Python code I was looking for help with.
20:00 mikemol But, yeah, I'm having to get involved more frequently than I used to, which is a sign we might need some real structure soon.
20:06 mwn3d_hawaii We're not to the breaking point yet but its something to think about
20:06 mwn3d_hawaii That's kind of what I was going for with the personal policies page I set up
20:07 mwn3d_hawaii If you can think of any other controversies put them in the talk page there and I can weigh in. That way I can have a say if some things get set up asynchronously.
20:32 mikemol There's a really nice development going on in [[Talk:Honeycombs]].
20:32 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Talk:Honeycombs
20:33 mikemol Mark's been editing the task page, and Rdm and I have been leaving notes in the talk page.
20:44 Hypftier Does http://hypftier.de/temp/hex.svg at least show the arrangement he's hinting at?
20:55 mikemol Probably best to leave that question on the talk page. I'm not certain.
20:56 mikemol It looks like the right arrangement, but I'm not sure if the row/column count is correct.
