During the past couple months, #perl6 has revamped several pugscode.org services:
- andara++ has updated the popular run-perl6-in-your-browser page to the latest development version, featuring a much more responsive UI via AJAX and mod_perl, and preloaded sessions.
- A developer-oriented Wiki workspace based on Trac, featuring integrated source tree browser, ticket tracker, as well as devbot6, a new TracBot on #perl6 that announces workspace edits and planet six posts.
- Pugs's primary repository is now running on Subversion 1.4.2, providing much faster (30%+) turnaround for SVK 2.0 users with its pipelining/ra_replay support. We still have two read-only mirrors at svn.openfoundry.org and svn.perl.org, updated every minute.
Our read-only Darcs mirror is now powered by Tailor, which preserves information on committer and commit messages. Thanks to proper checkpointing,
darcs get --partial http://darcs.pugscode.org/should be much faster from now on.
- In addition to the Perl 6 specification (rendered as HTML and annotated by acceptance tests), we now track the rest of pugs/docs/Perl6/ as well. Also, specbot6 now announces changes to the Perl 6 specifications on #perl6.
- This is where committers on #perl6 hand out commit bits to new Pugs hackers, powered by CommitBit. The nickname/password is shared by svn.pugscode.org and dev.pugscode.org.
All services above runs on feather.perl6.nl, the Perl 6 community development server donated and tirelessly maintained by the most excellent Juerd++. Many kudos!
On a more personal note, I was finally discharged from the hospital today. There will be a follow-up check in 3 days; if all goes well, that'll be the end of this rather unfortunate episode. Yay!
