This Week in PSC (127) | 2023-12-07

This week we:

  • Worked out final resolving actions for security issues.
  • Discussed recent mailing-list posts about making method non-public by default. This probably won’t work but we could open a PPC discussion on my method + $obj->&method syntax.
  • Reviewed Projects in Flight - posted below
  • Merged the PR for PPC 0022 (Metaprogramming API). Discussions on individual points can be made using GH Issues
