11:00 walterbender hi
11:00 vipulgupta2048 Hi
11:00 Pro-Panda Hi all
11:00 I was working on porting Sugar-Datastore to Python 3
11:00 Quozl_ i've been working on the record activity some more, and it is nearly ready for release.  today i added a mirror view button, added back the live viewfinder, and did flake8 fixes.
11:01 walterbender had a busy week on a project... only got some work on pie menus done but most of it is landed/merged
11:01 Quozl_ hi walter, vipul, rahul.
11:02 vipulgupta2048 I been working on my script (bugs detected) and some other tasks indirectly related to Sugar Labs. (Mentoring in GSSoC)
11:02 rdrsadhu Nothing much sugar. Added READMEs and improved documentation of chat, calculate, browse. Busy with exams.
11:02 walterbender is back from traveling, so he can look for the repos for amazonas et al.
11:03 Quozl_ hi Rudra.
11:03 rdrsadhu Hello everyone!
11:04 Quozl_ Pro-Panda: did you get your laptop working again?  kernel updates will apply automatically, this may change things.
11:04 vipulgupta2048 walterbender: did you have a chat with Yash ?
11:04 Pro-Panda Yes, its working, thanks :D
11:04 walterbender vipulgupta2048, yesterday
11:05 Pro-Panda Firmware Update solved the issue :-)
11:05 Quozl_ Pro-Panda: good.
11:05 Pro-Panda is back to work ;-)
11:05 Quozl_ any other what we have been working on responses?  half a minute, and i'll move to next agenda topic.
11:05 vipulgupta2048 Yes, I need to confirm with you. By my knowledge, we have 3 people as mentors in that program.
11:06 Me, Jasikrat and Yash
11:06 walterbender Quozl_, there is a another topic
11:07 some of the GSoC students signed up to mentor for a Python coding project
11:07 Pro-Panda I would also like to mentor
11:07 walterbender they will help students with GTK 2-->3 conversion
11:07 I told them I was worried about the mentoring burden
11:08 and reviewing immature patches
11:08 vipulgupta2048 Pro-Panda: I checked, I think the registrations are no closed. Sorry. I informed the same in an earlier meeting.
11:08 walterbender most of the students have some experience in this space.
11:08 mtd_ <mtd_!~mtd@2605:a000:f620:c500:5512:1b0:528b:63fa> has joined #sugar-meeting
11:09 Quozl_ #topic another mentoring opportunity (inserted into agenda by popular demand)
11:09 Pro-Panda vipulgupta2048: no worries
11:09 mtd__ <mtd__!~mtd@2605:a000:f620:c500:7576:7ec4:4345:a921> has joined #sugar-meeting
11:10 walterbender with all of these projects: GCI, GSoC,... it is the mentoring I worry about
11:11 Quozl_ walterbender: some of the mentoring i've observed is very hands-off.  it surprises me how little can be done and still call it mentoring.
11:11 walterbender Quozl_, yes...
11:11 Quozl_ ... on the other hand, what we can't see we can't discern.  there could be private mentoring happening.
11:12 walterbender Quozl_, I doubt it...
11:12 although in the case of at least 1 project, that is most certainly the case
11:12 mtd__ has quit IRC
11:12 Quozl_ walterbender: yes, i doubt it too; if there were private mentoring, i'd have seen results of it in terms of skill growth.
11:13 walterbender Quozl_, the is a fair amount of chatter in PRs and issues for some projects
11:13 Quozl_ walterbender: yes.
11:13 #topic ongoing suitability of GitHub after purchase
11:13 mtd_ has quit IRC
11:14 Quozl_ i've looked at the announced plans of GitHub and Microsoft and don't yet see any conflict with Sugar Labs code of conduct, licensing, or governance.  so i expect we'll keep using it.
11:14 walterbender I am in the wait and see camp, but I have had good experience with GitLab (inkscape)
11:14 I expect more advertising is coming our way :)
11:14 vipulgupta2048 Me too ( with Debian )
11:15 Quozl_ yes, i've touched gitlab with debian, fedora, freedesktop.  it's the scale of deployment that would hurt us; we don't have enough systems@ volunteers to do that.
11:16 any other topics?
11:16 walterbender not from me
11:16 Pro-Panda None from me
11:16 Quozl_ #topic record activity testing
11:16 vipulgupta2048 Not from me.
11:17 Quozl_ if you have a camera, and sugar, then quozl/record-activity branch gtk3 needs testing.  let me know if you test.
11:17 not suitable for fedora 18 though.  valid for ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04 so far.
11:18 Pro-Panda will try to
11:18 Quozl_ thanks.
11:18 motion to close meeting, all in favour?  rdrsadhu?
11:18 rdrsadhu +1
11:18 Pro-Panda +1
