I think we should all have a short plan for what we want to accomplish
at the code sprint. Small, focused goals are best.
I think if everyone learns how to
a) get a copy of the perl git repo
b) keep it in sync
c) run the perl test suite, including running a single test at a time
d) submit a small documentation patch
then we will have a great start. If we get to fixing real internals
bugs at our first sprint then that is awesome-sauce with unicorn
Some useful links for our recently planned code sprint:
Unresolved RT tickets that are blocking 5.10.1 :
Using the Perl git repo:
(short and sweet)
How to hack the Perl internals:
If you checkout perl from git below, then you can read the above with
"perldoc pod/perlrepository.pod" instead of reading POD source.
Also, I highly recommend everyone clone the perl5 git repo before the
sprint, it is somewhere around 100-150Mb :
$ git clone git://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git
Note that cloning over http is *considerably* slower. Not fun.
If you have more suggestions, let us know.
