I guess your mailing list is... dead? so I will just post this here :-)
(also: @kmod, @undingen -- can I add you to the confirmed attendees list?)

@kmod I finished merging in all previous missing upstream commits into the refcounting branch

awesome!
I had some success last night too
I got raytrace.py working
sad news is that it is about 20% slower than master, but it looks like there are some easy opportunities for optimizations

cool! the measurment is LLVM jit only raytrace.py with and without refcounting?

yeah
I didn't spend too long making sure it was exactly the same (there are some options that are different maybe), but I at least passed -O to both versions
@njsmith awesome! looks exciting
we've definitely been spending a lot of time thinking about this stuff and it'll be great to share where we're at and hear about what other people are up to
