 Please comment your favorite ticket numbers you want to ask to discuss with your *SHORT* comment or summary. 
 (your summary/comment will help us because we don't need to read all of ticket comments) 

 *DO NOT* discuss then on this ticket, please. 

 From this time, we use a ticket to make dev-meeting agenda page instead of a wiki page <>. 

 # NOTE 

 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 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 is scheduled according to when/where we can reserve Matz's time.

 ## From non-attendees 

 * [Feature #14697] Introducing Range#% as an alias to Range#step (mrkn) 
   * Matz already commented LGTM.    Please judge whether this is acceptable. 
 * [Feature #14724] chains of inequations (mrkn) 
   * This new syntax can also reduce the duplicated evaluations of common terms, such as `timeval.tv_sec` in the descriptiohn of the proposal. 

 Functional programming: (zverok) 

 * [Feature #6284] Add composition for procs 
   * 6-year-old proposal. Matz: "Positive about adding function composition. But we need method name consensus before adding it? Is `#*` OK for everyone?" 
 * [Feature #13581] Syntax sugar for method reference 
   * 1-year-old proposal. Matz: "I am for adding syntax sugar for method reference. But I don't like proposed syntax (e.g. `->`). Any other idea?" 
 * [Feature #11161] Proc/Method#rcurry working like curry but in reverse order 
   * 3-year-old proposal with absolutely no reaction. I've added real-life examples there several months ago. 
 * [Feature #14390] UnboundMethod#to_proc 
 * [Feature #14423] Enumerator from single object (`Object#enumerate`) 

 * [Bug #14575] Switch `Range#===` to use `cover?` instead of `include?` (zverok) 

 * Docs (probably not to discuss on development meeting, but I am not sure where I can post it to have it more visible) (zverok)
