DConf is getting Lua architect Roberto Ierusalimschy to speak, and Walter's named argument DIP is being discussed. I see some potential for expansion in it later, but also have no objection to it as-is.
On the other hand in DIP news, Walter's proposal has fatal flaws and I wrote a new DIP to replace it with several people signing on, but Walter hasn't replied at all. Status of the amendment is unknown.
Otherwise, I thought about writing more this week, but I got busy with personal life stuff. I'll write next week!
See more at the announce forum.
