You are not expected to read all of them. And most people don't leave
their clients open ALL the time.

I keep an IRC window open all day every day and participate in
conversations on and off as I can spare the attention and things are
going on. I can assure you that conversations do, in fact, take place on
IRC.

Re: Ephemeral nature of IRC a day ago

You participate in conversations that happen while you're there, and
maybe if you step away from the keyboard for a bit you'd read the top
ten or so lines to get whatever context you can before participating.

If it doesn't make sense then I'd recommend just using IRC for a bit so
that you can grok it for yourself.

Re: Issue running git ls-remote on git.sr.ht a day ago

The git:// transport is deliberately unsupported by git.sr.ht. You need
to use the HTTPS or SSH transports.

Using -o skip-ci is the only supported method, and the only method I
intend to support. Third-party software should be updated to support
this.

That's weird, I really have no idea what might cause it.

Are you really running OpenSSL or are you running one of the several
libraries which pretends to be OpenSSL, like LibreSSL or GNUTLS?

Re: enums/uint/int support in go-bare 4 days ago

From Drew DeVault to ~sircmpwn/public-inbox

The ability to specify the precision of an enum type was ultimately
removed - perhaps the parser or example schemas in go-bare is out of
date. enums and uint/int types are definitely supported in general
terms.
