parrot-libgit2 weekly report: Indexes and Repositories

This was a rather slow week in terms of work done. The work done this week started out with merging the nciupdate branch with master. Having PMC's as default fallbacks for unparseable arguments made the nci defs much more accurate. Of course tests are still needed, and some flaws would come forward as other work builds upon that work.
Then the next part involved cleaning out some more cruft from the old project. This included redundant entries in .gitmodules, duplicated directories and some other makefile work.

Parrot 5.1.0 "Zombie Parrot" Released!

    Flat on the bunk again, he ran for his life. The Parrot stalked him
    through the grey hours of morning, smoothing its fractal feathers,
    shuffling itself slowly into clarity as though at the end of a
    flashy film-dissolve, until at last his mind's eye had to acknowledge
    a shape,
        a shape,
            a wink
