23:00 avolpe hello
23:00 walterbender hello everyone
23:01 let me start the log for those who cannot join us
23:01 #start-meeting
23:01 meeting Meeting started Mon Nov 16 23:01:05 2015 UTC. The chair is walterbender. Information about MeetBot at http://wiki.debian.org/MeetBot.
23:01 Useful Commands: #action #agreed #help #info #idea #link #topic #endmeeting
23:01 walterbender #topic GCI
23:01 first, thanks everyone for coming at short notice
23:01 and thanks for agreeing to help with GCI
23:01 I guarantee you will enjoy it
23:01 Here is the current status
23:02 We have 19 mentors, which is really great!!!
23:02 and we have decent coverage across timezones, so I think we can have someone around to answer questions 24/7
23:02 We will use the regular #sugar channel for fielding questions
23:03 the basics are the following (for those of you who have not done this before)
23:03 there is a website that has a list of tasks
23:03 (1) a student will request a task
23:04 (2) we assign the task to the student
23:04 (3) they have a limited time (usually 3 days) to complete the task
23:04 (4) they submit code (or other documentation) for review
23:04 tch__ hello!
23:04 me and patty here
23:04 walterbender (5) we ask for changes or agree that they have completed the task
23:05 hi tch and patty
23:05 the cycle above 1-5 repeats
23:05 I am guessing we will need about 300 tasks by the time we are done
23:06 although ignacio is a mentor this year -- he did almost 100 tasks himself last year :)
23:06 the tasks come in 5 categories
23:06 1. coding (mostly tickets for Sugar, or related ideas)
23:06 k_yash 100 tasks is huge ignacio :D
23:06 walterbender 2. outreach
23:06 tch__ wow
23:06 walterbender 3. quality assurance
23:06 4. documentation
23:06 scg congrats Ignacio!
23:06 tch__ (patty)
23:07 congrats
23:07 walterbender and 5. design
23:07 so we can offer lots of different choices
23:07 and cover lots of needs while giving the students lots to do and learn
23:07 one thing that is important
23:08 we need to hold the students to a high standard
23:08 the same standard as developers and designers
23:08 and they need to follow our standard practices regarding pull requests, commit messages, etc.
23:10 tch__ +1
23:11 k_yash so if they don't know how to make a PR or commits...we need to teach them that also right?
23:11 tch__ we havent done that much ourselves, so is a good opportunity to get that back~
23:11 (tch)
23:11 k_yash: yes, we help them with these basic tnings,
23:11 walterbender we can have a task for improving our internal documentation for all of this
23:11 tch__ k_yash: but we don't do the work for them :)
23:11 walterbender although I think we have a decent set of docs in the git repo these days
23:12 one more thing I forgot to mention
23:12 there are some beginner tasks that everyone can do
23:12 the idea is to give credit for getting the devel environment set up, etc.
23:12 lots of students will struggle with this (proxy issues) in first few days
23:13 be prepared to offer help
23:13 one of the fun things is to watch how much the students learn in six weeks
23:13 by the end of the contest, we will have some excellent contributions
23:13 and very proficient new community members
23:13 and they will bring new ideas
23:14 tch__ I am sure we will
23:14 scg Hope to get new sysadmins =)
23:14 walterbender scg, I hope so
23:14 google has a new system in place this year
23:14 the main site is where you signed up as a mentor
23:15 there you can add new tasks
23:15 we have 118 so far in the system
23:15 each task has 1 or more mentors assigned
23:15 you'll get email from the progress on those tasks
23:15 but feel free to help with any task
23:16 the system is a bit broken right now. I need to add you as a mentor to existing tasks (as the coordinator)
23:16 so let me know if you want to be added to any tasks
23:16 and please do add tasks
23:16 ask me any questions you may have
23:16 tch__ (patty here) who else will be mentoring in outreach tasks?
23:16 walterbender we have two experts in ignacio and sam
23:16 tch__ I would like to~
23:17 walterbender tch__, mariah is helping there too
23:17 noemu i'll be helping with outreach (mariah)
