Added by mame (Yusuke Endoh) about 1 year ago. Updated 12 months ago.



The next dev meeting

Date: 2021/05/21 13:00-17:00

  • Dev meeting IS NOT a decision-making place. All decisions should be done at the bug tracker.
  • Dev meeting is a place we can ask Matz, nobu, nurse and other developers directly.
  • Matz is a very busy person. Take this opportunity to ask him. If you can not attend, other attendees can ask instead of you (if attendees can understand your issue).
  • We will write a log about the discussion to a file or to each ticket in English.
  • All activities are best-effort (keep in mind that most of us are volunteer developers).
  • The date, time and place are scheduled according to when/where we can reserve Matz's time.
  • DO NOT discuss then on this ticket, please.

Call for agenda items

If you have a ticket that you want matz and committers to discuss, please post it into this ticket in the following format:

* [Ticket ref] Ticket title (your name)
  * Comment (A summary of the ticket, why you put this ticket here, what point should be discussed, etc.)


* [Feature #14609] `Kernel#p` without args shows the receiver (ko1)
  * I feel this feature is very useful and some people say :+1: so let discuss this feature.
  • It is recommended to add a comment by 2021/05/18. We hold a preparatory meeting to create an agenda a few days before the dev-meeting.
  • The format is strict. We'll use this script to automatically create an markdown-style agenda. We may ignore a comment that does not follow the format.
  • Your comment is mandatory. We cannot read all discussion of the ticket in a limited time. We appreciate it if you could write a short summary and update from a previous discussion.

  • [Bug #15928] Constant declaration does not conform to JIS 3017:2013 (jeremyevans0)
    • Do we want to make constant assignment evaluation similar to attribute assignment (e.g. use left-to-right evaluation)?
    • We recently made a similar change to make multiple assignment use left-to-right evaluation (#4443), and I think constant assignment should operate the same way.
  • [Bug #17767] Cloned ENV inconsistently returns ENV or self (jeremyevans0)
    • How should ENV.dup and ENV.clone work?
    • I propose to have them return ENV, since they share the same storage.
    • If we do want ENV.dup and ENV.clone to return ENV, is the patch acceptable?
  • [Bug #13876] Tempfile's finalizer can be interrupted by a Timeout exception which can cause the process to hang (jeremyevans0)
    • Currently, exceptions can be raised during finalizer processing (in GC context), causing process hangs.
    • Can we mark when a thread is running finalizers and not check for pending interrupts in that case, as the patch does?
  • [Bug #17739] Array#sort! changes the order even if the receiver raises FrozenError in given block (jeremyevans0)
    • Currently, freezing an array inside Array#sort! allows further changes to the array.
    • Should we prevent further changes to the array by checking whether the array is frozen each time the block returns?
  • [Bug #17631] Numeric#real? incorrectly returns true for NaN and INFINITY (jeremyevans0)
    • Is the current behavior of real? and complex? expected, where Complex#real? is always false and Numeric#real? is always true?
    • I believe so and think this bug should be closed, but I would like to get confirmation.

  • [Feature #17795] Around Process.fork callbacks API
    • Was considered in the last meeting, but didn't reach any conclusion
    • Since then more use cases and argument were brought.
  • [Feature #16038] Provide a public WeakMap that compares by equality rather than by identity
    • Would allow user code to implement interned value objects, similar to String#-@ but for arbitrary types.
    • Was initially proposed about 2 years ago, but didn't reach a conclusion.

Updated by duerst (Martin Dürst) about 1 year ago

  • [Feature #17849] Fix Timeout.timeout so that it can be used in threaded Web servers
    • Ruby is used a lot in Web servers and other places with Threads and potential timeouts.
    • We should make sure we can provide the best possible timeout solution for these environments.

  • [Bug #17822] Inconsistent visibility behavior with refinements (alanwu)
    • I think the three cases in the repro script should behave the same. What do you think?
    • If they should behave the same, what should be that behavior?
