<ijp>psyntax is exhausting
<ijp>well, I've hit the bottom of that well, just need to climb back up again
<OrangeShark>yay, got the tests for guile-git to work and now distcheck passes :)
<OrangeShark>there was apparently a third option, automake sets the env variable $srcdir with the location of the src code so (getenv "srcdir")
<ArneBab_>OrangeShark: nice!
<ArneBab_>paroneayea: ah, yes, the GC is not exposed yet (it’s a future feature: )
<ArneBab_>ijp: WebAssembly has a gc, but it does not expose it to client code right now.
<ArneBab_>paroneayea: I also get hit regularly by forgetting commas in Python ☺ — somehow they feel so superfluous now …
<dsmith-work>Happy Friday, Guilers!!
<OrangeShark>happy friday
<paroneayea>hello, *!
<paroneayea>ACTION tosses some climbing supplies to ijp
<paroneayea>stay hydrated! :)
<paroneayea>well I guess you said you were climbing out of a well, so maybe hydration is not the problem
<amz3>ArneBab_: any news from the word count challenge?
<OrangeShark>hey amz3
<OrangeShark>guile-git's `make distcheck` should now pass
<amz3>OrangeShark: :D
<amz3>I am curious what magic is this
<OrangeShark>there was a 3rd option, the env variable $srcdir is set by make
<OrangeShark>it is mentioned in automake docs
<OrangeShark>so just do (getenv "srcdir")
<amz3>it's lower caps?
<amz3>it this usual for env vars? I was under the impression that env vars are always lower case
<OrangeShark>you mean uppercase?
<amz3>something like GUILE_LOAD_PATH
<amz3>ACTION looking at the commit
<OrangeShark>yeah, I usually see them uppercase, but there is probably some reasoning used here for lowercase.
<amz3>now, I'd like to say that I am not very very into doing a release myself
<amz3>I don't know the code well enough to get started
<amz3>and ...
<amz3>I will find something else..
<amz3>I need to think about it
<OrangeShark>We should probably move the project to an organization group before doing a release
<amz3>ah yes right
<OrangeShark>are we still fine with using guile-git as the project name?
<OrangeShark>I think you mentioned someone contacted you before about the name
<amz3>also ask mathieu and civodul what they want, but I think, civodul prefers to do a release ASAP and also do a lot of release
<amz3>OrangeShark: the name?
<amz3>maybe i was talking about mathieu because he is contributing to the guile-git project now
<amz3>he wants to replace some software called 'repo' or something
<OrangeShark>they already have guile-git as an optional dependency for guix
<amz3>that helps manage multiple repositories or something not sure what is
<OrangeShark>oh, so mathieu wants to use guile-git for this?
<amz3>at work I am dreaming of guix
<OrangeShark>ah, something they made for android
<amz3>this sound very exciting in the context multiple free software code base
<amz3>I mean, even in web dev with Django this could already be useful
<OrangeShark>yeah, usually a group of related projects
<amz3>at my last job, in a newspaper, we coded something like that to put in place the developer environment and later extend it to publish the whole stack to production
<OrangeShark>gnome would be similar
<amz3>yeah definitly
<OrangeShark>they have a bunch of git repos
<OrangeShark>at my work, we just put everything in the same repo
<amz3>me too
<amz3>I am moving to a multi repo project nowdays, it's very painful
<OrangeShark>well most of the projects are in the same repo
<amz3>well, I also download a bunch of libraries over git to always have a look at the latest developement and have the documentation handy
<OrangeShark>the project I work on right now is a separate repo but it depends on stuff in the other repo
<amz3>instead of going to google and stuff
<amz3>i prefer single repo
<amz3>even if I understood that creating repos is useless, and it's better to contribute to a single project I continue to fork my efforts in separate ways...
<OrangeShark>it used to be a single repo, but then all the code that was really maintained in the other project left this project get quickly outdated
<OrangeShark>in the other repo
<amz3>also when you release, you have to do multiple releases
<OrangeShark>yeah, we are separate releases
<OrangeShark>it gets confusing
<OrangeShark>amz3: I understand how you feel about forking your effort. I am tempted with the same. I need to refocus on guile-git and guile-commonmark
<amz3>I'd like to be able to work on my day job on guile stuff
<OrangeShark>or at least on linux
<OrangeShark>I am stuck on windows :(
<amz3>you have a virtual machine?
<amz3>running GNU/Linux I mean?
<OrangeShark>no, we only use windows at work
<amz3>oh ok
<amz3>I use debian
<OrangeShark>use windows, develop for windows
<amz3>it makes sens
<amz3>you do webdev?
<OrangeShark>backend stuff
<OrangeShark>we could probably move to GNU/Linux, just need to reimplement the windows specific bits
<amz3>I see
