in attendance: Zooko (scribe), ClashTheBunny, Daira, Andrew, Amber, Rohit,
Tariq

The agenda was "Nuts and Bolts".

ClashTheBunny has fleshed out MarcusW's IPv6 patches for foolscap and
Tahoe-LAFS. We spent the dev chat working on the tests. It already has
thorough tests, but we want additional tests that make a mockery of Twisted
instead of letting foolscap use the real Twisted. Also, we want to refactor
the tests to have minimal code duplication. We generated a few patches in
this attempt:

https://github.com/daira/foolscap/commit/9d1af123dfae40e2720ae688388eb5f3d8191505

https://github.com/daira/foolscap/commit/64b6a62990f9fe4504c96d74b1c6592d9f1df56b

https://github.com/daira/foolscap/commit/dbe05d4f3aa855a6c5f84328b77cf4fdc3b5f816

Tune in next time for "Tesla Coils and Corpses" — Andrew will present
"type-directed security definitions for generic authenticated data
structures"

By the way, if you are planning to attend next Thursday's Weekly Dev Chat
then you definitely need to email zooko at LeastAuthority.com and let me know
about your scheduling constraints. I think there are conflicts between
different attendees. The most commonly requested time slots are 15:00Z and
16:00Z. (The chat is 1 hour long.)

Regards,

Zooko
