in reply to Perl mailing list activity

Measuring the quality of communication by the number of emails is like measuring the quality of code by its number of lines. And I guess you know the comparison to aircrafts :-)

I know first hand what happened to the perl6-language mailing listPerl 6 matured, and the mailing list didn't. I asked about how some few methods are named, and some of the replies suggested to rework the complete object system. So the discussion moved away from the mailing list (to IRC, blogs, nopastes, the bug tracker of the perl6/specs repo on github, real-live conversations and so on).

So to me, the decreased number of emails on this mailing list indicates a shift in communication, not a decline.

[choroba]: Algorithm::Loops
[Corion]: choroba: I'm using that to generate the permutations, but I don't know how the user can pass the intended values to my function in a sane way
[Corion]: I have a prototype that permutes the get_parameters, but the values used for the get parameters should be different from the values used for the headers and potentially for parts of the URL
[Corion]: But yes, in general, my approach will be "split the URL into another set of parameters, generate an array of allowed values for each parameter and then NestedLoops() over the set"
[choroba]: hmm... so you need something like bag from Test::Deep, but not for checking, but for generation
[Corion]: This has the dual use of easily requesting sequential URLs and also being suitable for testing
[Corion]: For testing, I want to skip all tests with the same value(s) once one test fails to cut down on the number of failing tests
[Corion]: choroba: Yes, in a way I
