Perl 6 Design Minutes for 18 April 2007

[ #33129 ]

The Perl 6 design team met by phone on 18 April 2007. Larry, Damian, Allison, and chromatic attended. These are the minutes.

Damian:

  • released versions 2 and 3 of the Perl 6 POD parsing modules
  • lots of feedback
  • version 4 should be much, much better and out today or tomorrow
  • lots of improvements
  • otherwise putting together my summer travel schedule for the US and Europe

Larry:

  • is there a hackathon around YAPC::NA?
  • I didn't see anything right off the bat
  • trying to figure out my itinerary

Allison:

  • I haven't seen any explicit plans

Damian:

  • also saw myself described as the evil half of Larry
  • that would explain a lot

Larry:

  • maybe I could stand on my head

c:

  • that makes you Ahriman!

Damian:

  • still hope to review the remaining synopses

Larry:

  • trying to figure out my itinerary
  • Audrey's showing up on my doorstep on July 1
  • we're heading off to a workshop on functional programming in Iceland
  • that's just before OSCON
  • other than taxes, worked some on the grammar and then on the specs
  • clarified various things people brought up
  • my grammar had unless without else for several months

Damian:

  • I was absolutely thrilled to see it

Larry:

  • can't think of anything majorly earth shaking apart from that

c:

  • I fixed some bugs in Parrot
  • I added some features to Parrot
  • I applied some patches to Parrot
  • Parrot, Parrot, Parrot

Allison:

  • I spent a lot of time on bugfixes and closing tickets
  • the most fun I had was debugging a resizable boolean array PMC
  • it had some very obscure math errors in calculating its storage
  • otherwise trying to work on low-level PMC design
  • that's why I figured closing that bug was a good task
  • still haven't heard from OSI on the license
  • need to follow up and make sure there's progress
