Some people are brave:
yes i want the re-implement in the SIunitx. without using the package — Saravanan.O 2 mins ago

@TeXnician very brave!

6:57 AM
@TeXnician perhaps finally we will get a proper implementation:-)

@DavidCarlisle pgf broke the interfaces package (unmaintained since 2011 ...) by using \scantokens.

@UlrikeFischer Yay!

@UlrikeFischer the error message had \scantokens written all over it but I didn't bother tracing last night:-)
@JosephWright github/fix-interfaces......

@DavidCarlisle yes same with me.
@DavidCarlisle The main things that broke are imho all the redefinitions of internal pgfkeys commands so some public tikz/pgf developer is needed here ...

8:01 AM
@UlrikeFischer or as I think I saw you comment under the question, just declare the interface package as not working, and move on....

@DavidCarlisle much better idea.

8:15 AM
Another question answered by not using one of my packages...

8:33 AM
Did anyone get a luaotfload update with texlive?

@UlrikeFischer I have an up to date tl, what version do you expect? by the way vvv
 %% FIXME  The date is meaningless, we need to find a way to
%%        use the git revision instead.
[2018/10/28 v.2.93  OpenType layout system]
@UlrikeFischer couldn't l3build fill that in now....

@DavidCarlisle I expect Lua module: luaotfload-main 2019-05-18 2.97 in a log. Where is the FIXMe from?

@UlrikeFischer -main.lua has
local ProvidesLuaModule = {
version       = "2.96",       --TAGVERSION
date          = "2019-02-14", --TAGDATE

@DavidCarlisle oh, looks as if the tagging is missing this. Will check.
@DavidCarlisle I will write to the texlive list. lualibs came on sunday, but luaotfload seems to be lost.

9:16 AM
@DavidCarlisle found the error, a period too much ... But I'm a bit disappointed that Petra didn't complain.

10:05 AM
@UlrikeFischer I have lots of complaints from Petra in my mail archive that I could forward if you feel you are missing out

10:44 AM
@DavidCarlisle second hand complaints ;-(

11:20 AM
Ulrike regarding the missing update in tl, what kind of hello doc do we need to trigger that information?
Sorry my bad, too used to look in the console log.
Fully up to date from Danish mirror (dotsrc.org)

Lua module: lualibs 2019-05-18 2.65 ConTeXt Lua standard libraries.
Lua module: lualibs-extended 2019-05-18 2.65 ConTeXt Lua libraries -- extended c
ollection.

@daleif every document compiled with lualatex is fine, as it shows the version of luaotfload-main. But the update is really missing, it should now say 2019-05-18 2.97.

@UlrikeFischer seems so, the Danish mirror is usually quite fast with its updates once they are running again after a new TL release.
I'm assuming that since luaotfload is an internal component in lualatex, that is why it never shows up under \filelist

11:36 AM
@daleif lua files aren't shown anyway, but I added everywhere the module messages, so at least the log is rather clear now.

1 hour later…
12:58 PM
I don't know why, but I wrote a parser that translates \romaji{niku} into にく the last night. Does anybody know whether such thing already exists in LaTeX? (I know there is kanaparser for LuaTeX, but only found out by chance when I entered texdoc kana)
Oh, and \romaji{TABERU} translates to タベル (guess what that means in English)

1:19 PM
I'm trying to partially rewrite some TeX code into LuaTeX.
So, I understand that one includes Lua code in TeX using \directlua. And called to e.g. tex.sprint are sent to TeX.
But suppose I want to replace part of a string I'm sending to TeX (using sprint) with a Lua function, say.
How would that work?
(I realise this is vague. I'm just thinking aloud.)
