<zacts>I want to get involved with gnu guix
<zacts>I'm learning scheme - reading simply scheme then sicp. I've completed much of an sicp using python class.
<civodul>Steap: could you register as a mentor in Melange?
<mark_weaver>Hello Guixers!
<mark_weaver>wow, 13 people here! (not counting the two loggers)
<mark_weaver>civodul: ah, so it's not too late for you to register as a gsoc mentor after all?
<mark_weaver>so the only remaining problem is that we weren't allocated a slot
<civodul>mark_weaver: someone just offered a slot
<mark_weaver>excellent! :)
<civodul>so now it's a matter of doing what needs to be done on Melange
*civodul kindly pings Steap :-)
<civodul>time for dinner...
<Steap>civodul: let me see
<Steap>civodul: sent a request to GNU /via/ melange
<Steap>not sure who needs to validate that, though ?
<civodul>Steap: no idea, but that's probably the right thing to do
<civodul>i suppose José receives a notification
<civodul>or Giuseppe
<civodul>who knows
<CaptainLex>Hello all!
<civodul>hey CaptainLex
<CaptainLex>How's it going, everyone?
<civodul>CaptainLex: looks like we're getting a slot, finally
<civodul>is it still OK with you?
<CaptainLex>How many proposals did you get?
<civodul>well, two serious and one too late
<CaptainLex>What was the other serious one?
*CaptainLex said presumptuously
<civodul>the Emacs one, but Xue will do another thing on Emacs presumably
<CaptainLex>Anyway, if you were asking if I were still interested in working on Guix, then the answer is definitely yes
<civodul>great :-)
<civodul>Steap will probably be your official mentor, but everyone on bug-guix is welcome to participate, ofc
<civodul>and i certainly will
<CaptainLex>My semester ends in a week, then I need to finish something up before June 1. I can spend the whole community bonding time getting Guix up and running, reading SICP, etc
<CaptainLex>And I can still poke around in my spare time before then
<CaptainLex>Nice! This sounds pretty cool
<CaptainLex>How sure of a thing is it?
<civodul>it'll be 100% sure within a few days, i think
<civodul>but we're getting there
<CaptainLex>Wow, nice! Thanks!
<civodul>it's mostly that i'm not familiar with the process
<CaptainLex>Hey, no pressure
<Steap>Yeah, would be nice to finally run Guix :)
<CaptainLex>Yeah, I wish I could figure that linker error on gcc :P
