* conference (Thorsten)
+ in-person ESC meeting 16th October, 17:00 at the venue.
+ topics for an extended agenda appreciated ...
+ your pitch for sanity here :-)
** PLEASE REGISTER BEFORE OCTOBER 8TH **
+ speakers please just enter "No" for have you paid;
that is a valid option.
AI: + folks without a hotel - mail thb / sweetshark (for couchsurfing/rooms)
* git submodules / rename (Norbert)
+ code-wise done, features/submodules branch
+ does it work when you go across the migration?
+ testings appreciated!
+ doc writing in progress
+ once doc is done, when to do that?
+ each of the four repos - rename files in all submodules - that
means, if you have a patch, across the boundaries, you need to
manipulate the patch
+ proposed submodule migration at the conference.
* bibisect goodness (Norbert)
+ experimented on mac, collected every build on mac, 900 builds,
resulting repo is 2.1G -> too big
+ collect only once a day
+ collecting the windows ones too
+ 700M - builds are less frequent
+ an advanced QA / user is able to bibisect it down to 50 commits
* sysadmin contract / work ...
AI: + ping Tollef (Bjoern)
* distro/suse/suse-3.6 branch: input appreciated (Kendy/Michael)
+ want to get our product work into public git
+ all patches are upstreamed anyway, but this makes things better for all
+ since it's the same code - branch should be small size-wise
+ problem: lots of tags for customer / PTF builds - 20-30 tags per release
+ is that ok ? concerned about amount of tags ?
+ normally people don't get the tags (Norbert)
+ only fetch tags for branches you have checked out by default
+ lionel: already >2000 tags, who cares about some more
+ resolution: check this in, tags and all
+ clean legacy tags at end of support life if a problem.
* QA update (Joel)
+ QA meet-up next in Essen report ...
+ FDO font-size issue
+ some gmail users having problems with <pre>tag</pre> sizes
+ really a browser mis-configuration
+ Joel to educate around a fix.
