Message ID:
PSC #069 - 2022-06-17

Paul was out today, but Neil and Rik more than filled the allotted time.


We reviewed stuff we'd planned to do before this week but that didn't happen or wasn't recorded:
 * Rik was to comment on the qa[...] thread.  He might not, at this point.
 * Rik was to post on the "tables in Pod" thread, and might or might not.
 * Rik was going to follow up on source::encoding, which was shelved as 5.36.0 got closer.  He's still going to do this!
 * Paul was going to look into the situation regarding putting UNIVERSAL::import in universal.c
*Our last meeting?*

It's possible this is the last meeting of the current PSC, although without Paul it was just two of us.  Once the next PSC membership is determined, we'll have a joint session to ensure the peaceful transition of power.

*Notable RFCs*
 * deprecating the use of *'* as a package separator:  we'd like to get a deprecation warning on that as early as possible!  there is not a clear RFC at the moment, but (Rik thinks) it's most likely that a deprecation warning is step one, so being able to do it sooner than later is good!
 * optional chaining: Rik has asked Breno to write up a full RFC
 * tables and images in Pod:  Neil and Rik are both pretty iffy on these.  In the abstract, the utility is clearly non-zero, but the effort to implement is high and it's not clear that there'd be a lot of uptake on the feature.
 * https out of the box:  This project probably needs a project manager, not just a "sure let's do it."  We discussed the question of root certs just a little.  Rik thinks it would be useful to sketch out what actions would lead to what outcomes in what scenarios.
 * "yield true":  There are some questions about technical details, and Rik should send an email.  We were both keen to see this progress, though.
 * template strings:  Rik will write up a real RFC.  Neil played the devil's advocate, but Rik remained on the side of the angels.  "This is gonna be great, folks," he says.
