+ curiosity about %age of patches back-ported to stable
+ poked into it: around 60% of 4.1 fixes go back to 4.0 as well.
+ 13% are back-ported to 3.6
+ don't want to break stable by back-porting everythign (Bjoern)
+ thanks to TDF & Bjoern for getting tester netbooks deployed
+ three out there - 2x Windows 8 and 1 Linux.
* GSOC update (Cedric)
+ please mentor your students, mid-term evaluations
from Mon 29th July until end of that week.
* gerrit bits (Bjoern)
+ check that all devs and gerrit admins are subscribed to an OTRS queue
+ Norbert, Thorsten, Bjoern are there.
+ only ten people who are devs
AI: + dig out docs on signing up to the OTRS queue (Bjoern)
* UX input (Astron)
+ setup a UX Advice bz component and default CC the ux-advise ML
+ unless someone wants to write a script to scrape keywords
and proxy to mail.
+ idea with component => the better idea.
+ icons on master:
+ added Sifr to the default icon set
+ approved: remove crystal from the default binary build
configuration (retaining Oxygen) to keep space requirements
+ leave crystal icons in the source tree for packagers
+ Android remote discussion improvements
+ perhaps another whiteboard for iOS - somewhat different.
* Hamburg hack-fest update (Bjoern)
+ it was awesome.
+ achieved quite a few nice things:
+ great beer event at the beginning (sponsored by Lanedo)
+ hacked until 4am.
+ nice group photo (missing Florian)
AI: + write a short blog entry with photos (Eike)
* Investing in even better productivity (Michael)
+ Bought CrossOver office licenses ...
+ mail me if you could use one of this to improve
* Added git commit access for:
+ Issa - for Sifr icons (Michael)
* People who are not members, should consider that (Michael)
+ benefits: voting for and standing for election in
Board / Membership Committee
+ Certification etc. apply at:
+ election / membership deadlines coming up soon.
* gerrit build-bot awesomeness (Michael)
+ it appears to work rather well, we have hardware coming
+ can we enable it for all committers ?
+ problem originally was around getting more build H/W (Norbert)
+ with this we should be able to do ~all commits in a day
+ is there a wiki page to follow to setup buildbots ? (Thorsten)
+ need ssh / ids setup to make this work (Norbert)
AI: + get windows build-bot setup (Norbert/Thorsten/Moggi)
+ how to trigger builds ? (Norbert)
+ if you do a +2 - as a committer, but don't push it,
auto trigger a build
+ can we give out the ssh command - so committers can trigger
them explicitly ? (Bjoern)
+ currently ssh command makes you root (Norbert)
+ prefer to have a criteria to auto-schedule
manual +2 without commit, just a safety precaution
to avoid destruction.
+ DavidO has it already done in the plugin (Bjoern)
+ block on getting Win32 tinderbox
* Bulk change of header include style (Michael)
+ thoughts on this:
+ defer until 4.1.2 or so - when cherry-picking reduces
+ concern that angle brackets only for system headers (Stephan)
+ discussed this in the past, MS compiler does insane things
with path lookups if you use quotes (Bjoern)
+ what ? (Stephan)
+ walks entire include path backwards (Bjoern)
+ libxml - is that a local or a system include ? (Norbert)
+ in the code we can't know that, notion is a bit fuzzy
+ no need to violate the std for no reason (Stephan)
+ performance might be a good idea.
+ potential compromise: have "" for files in the same
directory as the cxx (Michael)
+ indifferent to cleaning it up (Stephan)
+ discuss it on the list
