<nalaginrut>morning guilers~
<nalaginrut>to whom interested in contributing, I've updated README
<civodul>Hello Guilers!
<artyom-poptsov1>Hello civodul
<wingo>moin :)
***mario-go` is now known as mario-goulart
<amz3`>héllo :)
<nalaginrut>hmm...several parts of tcpip in rumpkernel contains 4-clauses BSD, have to remove...
<nalaginrut>oh, wrong channel
<amz3`>does module-for-each iterate only over the public interface?
***peterbrett is now known as peterbrett_work
<ArneBab>a lesson from other projects: “breaking backwards compatibility” means “the program is broken”: — How long it took to get Lilypond to update to Guile 2.0 should illustrate this nicely. And that was a pretty small change.
<davexunit>ArneBab: wait, lilypond updated?
<davexunit>that issue is a bit more nuanced that simply breaking compatibility.
<ArneBab>not really updated… it was just said to work with 2.0 on some machines
<ArneBab>davexunit: Essentially you never know whether the next compatibility breaking will cause a similarly nuanced situation.
<davexunit>pretty short article that I really enjoyed reading.
<kwrooijen>Hey guys, I've been working on a Guile procedure index to make it easier to find specific procedures. Feedback is appreciated
<kwrooijen>I think this will make it a lot easier, especially for newcomers (like myself) to find specific things. But I still need to add some functionality to it
<mark_weaver>the guile manual has a procedure index
<mark_weaver>how is this different?
<kwrooijen>I find it easier to search this way, by filtering
<kwrooijen>I'm also planning on adding descriptions for procedures, and filtering by that
<holomorph>a concept index would be nice… poking the guile manual is on my list but… stuff.
<mark_weaver>the guile manual also has a concept index. surely it could be improved, though.
<mark_weaver>ACTION goes afk
<daviid>ACTION thinks that guile's manual index is perfect. almost, as I said a few years ago, it would be a tiny little better if, only wrt the index it would separate scm*, SCM* from the rest of procedures methods beginning with the letter 's'
<holomorph>ah, now i remember: a detailed node listing would also be helpful
<holomorph>in any case… i need to recall texinfo >.>
