23:03 walterbender Welcome everyone
23:03 If/when we have a quorum, we can bless this meeting as official, but meanwhile, lots to discuss.
23:04 meeting <Jose_Miguel-es> ;)
23:04 walterbender I've asked tch__ to start us off with an update regarding Sugar development
23:04 #topic the Next Release
23:05 CanoeBerry Cerlyn & All: howdy..
23:05 walterbender hi adam
23:05 tch__ I think we should put the time-based releases aside for 108, until we have something more substantial to release...
23:05 walterbender such as... working collaboration :)
23:05 tch__ exactly,
23:06 Quozl` that is, working collaboration without workarounds that fedora doesn't like.
23:06 walterbender Quozl`, yes... working out of the box
23:06 tch__ Quozl`, yes, samdroid and walter had an interesting breakthrough this weekend,
23:07 Quozl` a cost of doing business with fedora.
23:08 walterbender my personal goal is stability
23:08 icarito tch__, when do you think we should have another sugar release?
23:08 tch__ there have been other improvements, so I will just make a 107 release just to make it clear that we are still moving forward
23:08 icarito, when its done? hehe
23:08 Quozl` tch__: re time-based releases, i don't mind either way, but i suggest not releasing 107 until 108 is imminent.
23:09 tch__ Quozl`, well, these odd release are just for organizing the development process, have no other value
23:09 GrannieB has quit IRC
23:10 Quozl` tch__: do we get any serious testing of the odd-numbered releases?  i've been a bit suspicious of the test coverage in the past year.
23:10 walterbender icarito, is there some time pressure you are feeling for a new release
23:10 icarito tch__, the target was releasing in December, right? You don't think there will be significant improvement to release by then?
23:11 walterbender icarito, the collaboration bits may not be finished by then
23:11 or well tested :P
23:11 tch__ Quozl`, we do have testing, but we can certainly do better... we need more community involvement
23:11 icarito walterbender, it's just a measure of the health of the community, also we agreed it would be good to release in time by southern hemisphere schoolyear
23:11 Quozl` tch__: yes, we're not getting enough community involvement, but delaying releases won't help with that.
23:12 tch__ Quozl`, I think we should do a 107 release so we can make it happen, but we can have as many 107.x release as we need
23:12 walterbender icarito, would anyone care if we release something without significant improvements?
23:13 Quozl` walterbender: i think the collaboration rework can be held off until everything works.  separate branch, perhaps.
23:13 walterbender I think that is tch__ 's point
23:13 icarito walterbender, I don't know, do you think they have cared in the past?
23:13 walterbender icarito, I don't know, but we have had significant changes with each release in the past
23:13 GrannieB <GrannieB!~webchat@rev-18-85-44-69.sugarlabs.org> has joined #sugar-meeting
23:13 walterbender right now, very little by way of changes in the 108 queue
23:14 except the collaboration bits, which may or may not be ready for December
23:14 icarito walterbender, it has always been a good sign that we have had consistent releases. I don't think changes have been so significant between several versions.
23:15 walterbender icarito, I won't argue with you but I will point out that our release manager has the final say in this matter
23:15 icarito yes I was going to say that too
23:15 Quozl` i think the changes since 0.106.1 are significant, but i'm having a hard time identifying the 0.106.1 release in the master branch.  i can only find 0.106.0.
23:16 walterbender maybe we should continue this discussion the devel list and move on to other topics here.
23:16 tch__ Quozl`, well, things moved forward in master, and not all that was safe for a bug fix release, so 0.106.1 exists only in a branch (safe from unnecesary changes)
23:17 Quozl` walterbender: agreed, move on, consider the above a progress report from release engineer, with discussion.  ;-)
23:18 tch__ anyway, what I am suggesting is, we do 107.x release until we get enough progress on collaboration
23:18 walterbender, sure, we can continue on ML
23:18 walterbender thanks for the update tch__
23:18 #topic GCI
23:19 just an update: I have solicited enough (5-6) mentors to feel comfortable applying for GCI again this year
23:19 hopefully it will mean more new contributors :)
23:19 Quozl` can you list the mentors?
23:19 walterbender I'll keep SLOB abreast of the application process.
23:19 meeting <Jose_Miguel-es> Excellent!
23:19 walterbender German in NI
23:20 A couple of GSOC participants in IN
23:20 a couple of former Python Joven hackers in UY
23:20 and tch and myself
23:20 I could use more of course, but I think we can make do with that team
23:21 any other comments/suggestions?
23:22 Quozl` thanks.  i've no comments or suggestions.
23:22 walterbender #topic membership/election
23:22 GrannieB, any updates since last week?
23:23 GrannieB newsletter is almost ready
23:23 waiting in Adam
23:23 walterbender oh... so same as last week :)
23:23 GrannieB for "server report"
23:24 no… much closer to ready
23:24 walterbender GrannieB, did you need anything more from me? any of those pictures useful?
23:24 GrannieB yes! great pics
23:25 is pdf format ok?
23:25 walterbender GrannieB, anything sense of what the schedule will be for the election?
23:25 GrannieB, PDF is fine
23:26 GrannieB we are still looking at the end of December
23:26 sorry… mid December
23:27 walterbender mid-December for the election itself? can you fill in the dates for everything else that needs to happen?
23:27 GrannieB It hasn't changed as I see it
23:28 CanoeBerry GrannieB & All: can these dates be posted to something like http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/O[…]5-2016-candidates ?
23:28 walterbender GrannieB, so when do you want people to "declare" themselves as candidates?
23:29 GrannieB October was the origingal time… But I think mid-November might be OK if we don't get enough
23:30 They would still have 2 weeks to do their statements (by end of Nov.)
23:30 walterbender GrannieB, will you guys create a fresh page in the wiki for the upcoming election? the 2014 page is a bit stale
23:30 GrannieB Samson was going to do it
23:31 walterbender OK... perhaps you can remind him :P
23:31 GrannieB Yep will do
23:31 walterbender we can add a link from the landing page of the wiki as well
23:31 GrannieB and in the newsletter
23:32 walterbender +1
23:32 anything else you guys want to report?
23:32 GrannieB not now
23:33 walterbender OK. Thanks for the update

23:43 walterbender CanoeBerry, ???
23:44 Cerlyn Fedora supposedly approved a bundling measure where apps could have their own library versions (such as for collaboration).  However it is not preferred, and said libraries have to be explicitly declared.
23:44 CanoeBerry Nothing immediate?
23:45 walterbender Cerlyn, yeah... was discussed at the GNOME Boston hackfest this weekend
23:45 tch__, attended on behalf of SL
23:45 CanoeBerry I and Caryl were wondering about http://sugarizer.org - any offhand news here?
