i asked a pull request ( https://github.com/IronLanguages/main/pull/28 ) for fix Time#strftime behaviour on invalid directives on format string, ex: ruby 1.8: Time.now.strftime '%$' => '$' ruby 1.9: Time.now.strftime '%$' => '%$' this make green a mspec test on core/time/strftime_spec.rb I have some question: 1) i added a check for ruby compatibility >= ruby 1.9, is needed? 2) i removed 'fails:' from ironruby-tags-19/core/time/strftime_tags.txt is correct? 3) usually code review is in mailing list or github pull request? (so i dont need to write two times the same questions)

I say put everything in the pull request, and then send the link to the pull request to the mailing list.

You can remove compatibility check (including the one that's there). IronRuby only supports MRI 1.9. Tomas

yes the test was red before. i will remove the checks for 1.9 (are useless) and update the pull request.
