 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.

   * mrkn: BigDecimal is not a core class, so we cannot add such a syntax sugar.

 * [Bug #14699] Subtle behaviors with endless range (mame) 
   * Need to be discussed with mrkn 
 * [Bug #14845] Endless Range with nil (mame)

 * [Feature #14781] Enumerator#generate (zverok) 
   * more reasonable version of Object#enumerate proposed for the previous meeting. 
 * [Feature #14830] RubyVM::MJIT.pause / RubyVM::MJIT.resume (k0kubun) 
   * Is it okay to add such methods? If so, is there any comment for the behavior described in the ticket? 
 * [Feature #14709] Proper pattern matching (zverok) 
 * [Feature #14799] Startless range (zverok) 
 * [Feature #14784] One-sided Comparable#clamp (with endless/startless ranges) (zverok) 
 * [Feature #14859] Timeout in VM (normalperson) 
   *     Still needs some work, mainly wondering if the idea of moving this part of stdlib into core VM is acceptable or not.    No semantic changes except speed improvement.
