Gotta’ get ’em all.
And now I have them all. Maybe I can reduce the load on my wan pipe by setting up a mirror for the island.
Hey, look. I got mcs to github before Miguel
http://github.com/cjac/mcs I’m also hosting it on my own not-as-l33t git repo: http://git.colliertech.org/?p=mcs.git;a=summary Does this mean that I get a “cooler than Miguel” tee shirt?
Earlier this month, I applied to the Mono Project (and the University of Washington, and Ubuntu, and Debian, and The Perl Foundation) requesting a mentor to get Perl6 hosted on the DLR. Last Tuesday, Miguel contacted me and asked that I chat with Michael Hutchinson about possibly taking up a different project. It seems that […]

IronRuby continuous integration back online
We haven’t done much work on keeping the continuous integration (CI) machines online, and there haven’t been any new builds since November of ’09. I should set Nagios to remind us when things get off track or something. The recent acceptance of the DLR into Debian and our intention to get the next release produced […]
More DLR work
Ivan put up a hudson server on our winders box. Ankit helped me figure out the IronRuby xbuild build problems. I should probably try it on IronPython, too. I sent the ironruby-core list a patch to fix some case sensitivity issues. Some time in the near future, I’m going to get together a bug report […]
IronRuby on OS X

I’m happy to announce that after the filing of an Intent to Package and nearly 2 years of work, IronRuby 0.9, IronPython 2.6b2, and the DLR are now in Debian. To my knowledge, this is the first package in Debian with direct and active upstream support from Microsoft. Kudos for this release go to Jo […]
