[00:00:38] <paulej72> robind: are you around?
[00:18:04] <FatPhil> briefly, ues
[00:18:41] <robind> sup
[00:18:58] <paulej72> FatPhil: Have you looked at my commit on github at all https://github.com
[00:19:23] <paulej72> robind: can you give me owner access to the GitHub reop
[00:19:51] <FatPhil> trying to have a peek now...
[00:20:07] <paulej72> robind: also have you seen my commit as well. I am trying to get someone else to sign off on it.
[00:20:18] <robind> paulej72, can't do it right now, I gave you owner access
[00:20:23] <robind> actually about to leave the office for home
[00:20:26] <robind> i'll be back in a couple hours
[00:20:35] <robind> just be careful k
[00:20:38] <robind> you know that though ;)
[00:20:43] <paulej72> yes
[00:21:00] <paulej72> thanks robind
[00:21:11] <robind> np
[00:21:20] <robind> seeya guys later
[00:21:20] -!- robind has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[00:21:29] * paulej72 goes and delete the repo on GitHub :)
[00:24:29] <FatPhil> 6de6f27's fine
[00:24:51] <paulej72> OK thanks
[00:24:59] <FatPhil> eeece3d looks like about 3 different changes smooshed into one, so hard to review
[00:27:19] -!- oyCow4293 has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
[00:28:31] <FatPhil> ditto a896104, but at least they're not all mixed up with each other. Are there screenshots of the things that need to change?
[00:30:21] <paulej72> FatPhil: I did not think to do any screenshots. I will have to remember to do that in the future.
[00:30:40] <FatPhil> a896104 adds stuff that 502dbe5 removes, which means that you could have ammended a896104. Are you familiar with git add -p and git commit --amend?
[00:31:22] <FatPhil> and git rebase -i ?
[00:32:07] <FatPhil> c321e45's fine
[00:32:56] <FatPhil> as is
[00:32:56] <FatPhil> as is
[00:32:56] <FatPhil> Fix org template links to match current systems.
[00:33:08] <FatPhil> fab16f0
[00:33:10] <FatPhil> oops
[00:33:17] <paulej72> FatPhil: no I am not familiar with all of th git stuff, I only started working with git three weeks ago.
[00:33:42] <FatPhil> as is fab16f0, but the same applies about amending
[00:34:08] <FatPhil> You're gonna love all three of those commands!
[00:35:26] <paulej72> FatPhil, I would love if you were able to put up a little git primer on the Wiki. The stuff I wrote fro the VM primer is not very good as I am such a newbie.
[00:39:46] <FatPhil> I could even use your patches as an example so I don't have to create my own! Alas, I just can't sign up to github :-(
[00:40:16] <FatPhil> I guess not that those two things are related
[00:40:59] <paulej72> FatPhil: audioguy has a similar issue, but he does not want to use GitHub due to its use of JS.
[00:41:42] <FatPhil> yeah, I even enabled JS (normally I have it off), and it still doesn't work.
[00:41:58] <FatPhil> Their support response was "sorry, your browser's not supported"
[00:42:20] <paulej72> I think we need to talk with NCommander and see what the best place for our repo should be. I can see the benefits of GitHub and at the sme time see the benefits of our own hosted git server.
[00:42:23] <FatPhil> what's the giturl of the repo

[00:44:30] <xlefay> git clone on that'll will work
[00:44:31] <FatPhil> it's the parameter you gave the clone command
[00:44:43] <xlefay> https://github.com # actually to be precise
[00:45:28] <FatPhil> yup, cloning
[00:45:42] <xlefay> (the url paulej72 gave would work fine for cloning as well btw)

[01:00:44] <xlefay> guys: http://sylnt.us is that slow for you too?

[01:02:11] <paulej72> yes a bit slow xlefay
[01:03:02] <prospectacle> now it's quick
[01:03:14] <xlefay> yeah same here
[01:03:59] <paulej72> ddos?
[01:04:05] <paulej72> :)
[01:04:29] <xlefay> well Khyber wanted to attack me (e.g. the IRC, so if I were to guess, I'd assume he thinks sylnt.us belongs to me)
[01:05:52] <paulej72> he could be using the irc.sylnt.org address so it would be an probable assumption
[01:06:06] <xlefay> no
[01:06:20] <xlefay> irc.sylnt.us is routed to my server's IP, and I'm not under attack.

[01:10:03] <paulej72> xlefay: he gave up on your server and is hitting one level up now, would be my guess
[01:10:19] Landon_ is now known as Landon
[01:10:35] <xlefay> no, I don't think he even started on mine (I figured out the traffic raise on mine was unrelated)... I'm just guessing he's been hitting Landon from the start.
[01:11:18] <paulej72> well he does seem under the influence of some drug so anything is possible
[01:12:02] <paulej72> by the way xlefay what was that big transfer earlier in the morning that was on the graph you posted
[01:12:19] -!- prospectacle [prospectacle!~b4c880f7@180.200.jji.ihy] has parted #staff
[01:12:23] <xlefay> which graph was that one?
[01:14:22] <paulej72> xlefay: I can't find it, I may have been further in my scroll back than today.
[01:14:33] <xlefay> speedtest.net or a green charted chart?
[01:14:53] <paulej72> green one
[01:15:09] <xlefay> yeah that was actually my server hitting amazon SES, massive mail got send out

[01:25:49] <FatPhil> I totally suck at wiki
[01:25:51] <FatPhil> http://wiki.soylentnews.org
[01:27:25] <paulej72> FatPhil: mind if I fix it up a bit and move it under the dev pages?
[01:28:05] <FatPhil> Please do!
[01:33:19] <FatPhil> paulej72: shout when you're done, I'd like to add another principle...
[01:33:34] <paulej72> Ok I am about done.
[01:33:52] <FatPhil> IF there's something you want me to expand on, just create a section with [please write this] in it or something!
[01:34:29] <paulej72> FatPhil:
[01:34:39] <mattie_p> paulej72: pm sent
[01:35:08] <paulej72> Might want to expand the whole common tasks section. It might be useful
[01:35:23] <paulej72> Also I am done making my changes now
[01:53:51] <FatPhil> Yeah, some of the common tasks aren't so trivial if you're a novice, and should be expanded
[01:57:47] <paulej72> FatPhil: thanks for doing this I personally will be looking up those command ad looking at the reference you gave.
[02:00:21] <FatPhil> add -p and rebase -i will change your life!
[02:00:45] <FatPhil> rebase --abort is essential to know too though, as it's not a miracle worker!
[02:02:28] <paulej72> I have been using the gitgub gui to do my commits, although the command line is much more flexible.
[02:12:00] <FatPhil> I'm hardcore commandline. GUIs get in the way
[02:13:05] <FatPhil> if common commands are too long - aliases or shell functions can help
[02:14:02] <FatPhil> bash tab completion can do things like match branch names, which can speed things up (if you want to load zigabytes of shell scripts into your interactive shells, which I don't)
[02:15:00] <paulej72> I have been trying to at least group my commits by the issue I was dying to fix. also I have been trying to comment them fairly well.
[02:15:17] <paulej72> i love bash tab complete
[02:20:06] <paulej72> FatPhil: I am reading you changes, and I have a couple of questions. should I have a branch for each change or just for and issue. Currently I am working on redoing the preferences and I have all of the changes in one branch.
[02:20:11] <FatPhil> I did, until I saw the size of bash_complete or whatever the script's called. I'm using a 10-year old machine with only 224MB RAM - I'm pared down to the absolute minimum
[02:20:58] <stderr> I hate bash_complete...
[02:21:00] <FatPhil> one branch per pull request. branches are cheap.
[02:21:30] <FatPhil> pull requests should be coherent.
[02:22:23] <FatPhil> if you think a reviewer might say "what's this patch doing in this set" then it probably should be done in a different branch.
[02:22:27] <paulej72> OK I have not been doing that but I will start now. I have never done large group dev stuff before, so this is all new to me
[02:22:44] <stderr> Half the time, tab doesn't complete because bash_complete is stupid and then you have to do all sort of workarounds like using ls as the command, then tab complete, then change "ls" to that command you wanted to run...
[02:22:46] <stderr> Bah!
[02:23:33] <FatPhil> there are some completion quirks, certainly. Quirks + bloat = uninstall
[02:24:07] <FatPhil> It shouldn;t be a monolithic file anyway
[02:24:39] <FatPhil> each command-line package should supply its own completion helpers, adn they should be managed like menu
[02:25:03] <FatPhil> it's late, I think I'm incoherent, laters dudes
[02:25:39] <paulej72> another git question, I have grouping files in a single commit that are interrelated. A change in one is dependent on another. Should these be separated?

[05:09:49] <drcoolbp> <---back
[05:09:55] <MrBluze> wb
[05:10:10] <MrBluze> mattie_p: regarding making community decisions
[05:10:33] <mattie_p> yessir
[05:10:42] <MrBluze> it's a dilemma
[05:10:46] <mattie_p> I know it is
[05:10:48] <MrBluze> if you make a fully valid voting system
[05:10:54] <MrBluze> u give the voting system more credence
[05:11:11] <MrBluze> that makes staff's ability to overrule more difficult
[05:11:29] <mattie_p> I agree, it does
[05:11:40] <MrBluze> and it might sometimes be better for staff to overrule especially if good reasons are put forward that cannot be explained or understood by general public
[05:12:05] <MrBluze> therefore a poll should still be a poll - to gauge opinion
[05:12:10] <MrBluze> and then decisions explained to the public
[05:12:23] <mattie_p> if the staff needs to rule in a certain way for legitimate reasons, it probably should not go out for vote anyway, but as an article or journal or something
[05:12:37] <drcoolbp> ^^^^^^
[05:12:47] <drcoolbp> yeah, don't give them a false sense of choice
[05:13:01] <mattie_p> something like this, the name? Honestly, one name is as arbitrary as another. Simple majority preference would be best
[05:13:10] <MrBluze> a vote should exist for a member base
[05:13:16] <MrBluze> and that ought to be paid
[05:13:33] <mattie_p> but for something like business model, we posted a discussion on it, and got good feedback, but we'll have to make the final choices there
[05:13:35] <MrBluze> eg: voting for a leader, or constitutional change, or financial direction, or whatever
[05:13:46] <MrBluze> of course
[05:13:57] <mattie_p> yes, by-laws will probably need a vote
[05:14:02] <mattie_p> but that is a straight up or down
[05:14:05] <MrBluze> yes, that's easy
[05:14:18] <MrBluze> but at this early stage, letting random UID's determine our future is problematic i think
[05:15:04] <MrBluze> i mean, i am strongly in favour of community direction - it's part of the mission i guess, it's what we are, but at this point in the site's life i dunno how much to worry about the voting/polling system
[05:15:29] <drcoolbp> hmm
[05:15:37] <mattie_p> I'm honestly not too worried about it
[05:15:47] <drcoolbp> is this still private?
[05:15:55] <MrBluze> no
[05:15:57] <mattie_p> this is a public channel
[05:15:57] <drcoolbp> they are having the same discussion in #soylent
[05:16:08] <MrBluze> i know
[05:16:16] <MrBluze> but it's noisy in there
[05:16:22] <mattie_p> yeah it is
[05:16:38] <MrBluze> this isnt anything to keep private its just something to consider
[05:16:54] <MrBluze> eg: i reckon some things like choosing the name for the project (if it changes) is a thing that some might want to stack
[05:17:38] <mattie_p> MrBluze, I agree. We will have to come up with some criteria for it. I don't know what that is yet
[05:18:15] <MrBluze> if we dont need to rush, we shouldnt .. i mean we can rush into choosing a name, sure
[05:18:20] <mattie_p> registered before the vote opens is a probably gimme (no accounts created after poll opens can vote)
[05:18:24] <MrBluze> but the actual change of name should be very carefully conducted
[05:18:40] <mattie_p> That's just it, I don't want to rush into choosing the name.
[05:19:00] <mattie_p> However, it has been promised by multiple leaders at multiple times
[05:19:00] <MrBluze> maybe we should put the potential names forward
[05:19:25] <MrBluze> given that the domains have been bought already .. and then allow for discussion, and further submissions of owned domain names
[05:19:26] <mattie_p> have a campaign season before the vote?
[05:19:38] <MrBluze> well just in a post, to put it out there for all
[05:20:07] <MrBluze> after all non irc / non wiki reading people might complain they did not have the chance to participate
[05:21:02] <mattie_p> hrm, so you are suggesting posting the current 6 + SN, soliciting feedback on those, and opening up for more suggestions?
[05:21:20] <MrBluze> potentially
[05:21:36] <MrBluze> althought the six + SN were themselves shortlisted by staff
[05:21:40] <mattie_p> I'm open to that. I can make sure that sees the light of day
[05:22:00] <mattie_p> MrBluze that is true, from the suggestions given the staff shortlisted them
[05:22:10] <MrBluze> yep
[05:22:19] <MrBluze> debian has a two week voting period
[05:22:49] <MrBluze> i dunno if u had a look at their voting system .. it looks clever - i think it's in the repo's somewhere
[05:23:20] <drcoolbp> (it's acutally a really good discussion over there right now)
[05:23:53] <MrBluze> ok lets go there
[05:24:00] <mattie_p> <drussell> mattie_p: no voice, sorry to interrupt staff but hope you see this... I think the name may be one of the most critical votes ever, actually, and needs to be done right for many reasons, will try to collect and write up my thoughts coherently tonight...
[05:24:44] <mattie_p> drussel, please don't feel bad about interrupting, we appreciate the feedback
[05:25:02] <MrBluze> drussell: yep your input is valuable
[05:25:37] <MrBluze> yes.. many reasons eg: legal, journalistic, etc
[05:25:50] <drcoolbp> drussel: please let us know if you post a journal or something

[05:26:53] <drussell> Thanks, guys...
[05:27:06] <drcoolbp> no problem
[05:27:07] <MrBluze> do elaborate
[05:27:16] <drcoolbp> please: go on....
[05:27:44] <drussell> I think for one thing, one of the most important things about the name is it WILL help instill a feeling of community if a name is chosen that is mostly agreeable to most people, which
[05:28:09] <drussell> was one of the reasons I was so highly advocating for dome type of ranked voting system when this whole discussion started
[05:28:45] <drcoolbp> dome-type?
[05:29:03] <MrBluze> yeah, define that .. and also how do u think we deal with the stacking of votes?
[05:29:14] <MrBluze> we + should + deal
[05:29:27] <drussell> I've been dismayed at the lack of flexibility even for POLLS in the original slash system for many years and think even for polls there should be multiple polling methods, but for this name vote, we have to get *THAT* one bretty much perfect
[05:29:37] <drussell> (sorry, have back problems right now, I
[05:29:46] <drussell> I'm typing lying down and it's slow
[05:29:50] <drcoolbp> no problem
[05:29:56] <drussell> Wireless keyboard is sure handy though :)
[05:29:58] <drcoolbp> we agree, hence all the discussion
[05:29:59] <MrBluze> yes, true
[05:30:22] <mattie_p> back in a few, I am still in command. no pitchforks, guys :)
[05:30:22] <MrBluze> we're patient and we're listening
[05:30:23] <drussell> That's one of the main reasons I was saying I'll collect some of my thoughts in one place :)
[05:30:52] <drcoolbp> mattie_p: no promises
[05:30:55] <MrBluze> lol mattie_p ok
[05:31:02] <drussell> There are so many different ways to do voting, as you know, and all have their strengths and weaknesses
[05:31:03] <MrBluze> what about salad forks?
[05:31:17] <drcoolbp> drussel: a journal entry might be appropo, let us know if you post one
[05:31:32] <drussell> The important thing is finding the best solution for the name vote before it goes live
[05:31:37] <MrBluze> but if u can explain it here it's very helpful too
[05:32:10] <drcoolbp> yes, we would like to get this decision soon, but we share the need for accuracy here
[05:32:16] <drussell> sure we can make future polls better and they only need to be good enough, but THIS name vote must get it right, as it will
[05:32:44] <MrBluze> perhaps we should host the poll on a site that does this properly
[05:32:50] <drcoolbp> we talked about multiple rounds to help narrow in on the accuracy
[05:32:55] <drussell> have a huge effect on the future attitude of the community, etc (as you all already know)
[05:33:01] <drussell> Rounds has problems
[05:33:14] <MrBluze> ranking is better than rounds
[05:33:23] <drussell> The best solution is one which doesn't actually ... yes MrBluze
[05:33:36] <drussell> It should be done in one shot
[05:33:42] <MrBluze> yes and blind ballot
[05:33:48] <MrBluze> err.. secret ballot
[05:33:50] <drussell> Yes
[05:34:01] <MrBluze> well blinded - but we need to verify each vote

[05:35:24] <MrBluze> hi prospectacle
[05:35:35] <drcoolbp> drussel: please explain "dome voting"
[05:35:36] <prospectacle> Good afternoon
[05:36:17] <drcoolbp> <FoobarBazbot> drcoolbp: it was a typo for some
[05:36:30] <MrBluze> ohh ok
[05:36:53] <MrBluze> we could do the australian electoral commission system of voting
[05:36:58] <prospectacle> Just as an aside: Ranked votings sytems suffer from arrow's impossibility theorem http://en.wikipedia.org Approval voting does not
[05:37:01] <MrBluze> each candidate is numbered 1-n
[05:37:35] <MrBluze> and if no vote gets majority, it goes to round 2 and so on
[05:38:26] <MrBluze> ie: if 1's not majority, count 1+2's, if not majority, count 1+2+3's
[05:38:44] <drussell> drcoolbp, Sorry, yeah was some, not dome :)
[05:38:52] <drcoolbp> got it
[05:38:56] <prospectacle> MrBluze, in Aus, if no majority, the elimiate a candidate, and take the second preference votes for only that candidate.
[05:39:01] <MrBluze> that way something that might not be most popular as first choice might still win, because it was the most popular second choice
[05:39:18] <MrBluze> actually ur right
[05:39:20] <MrBluze> but yeah
[05:40:26] <MrBluze> however drussell another aspect to this, we have not really publicised the way in which candidate names can be put forward

[05:41:48] <kobach> theres been a lot of opping and voicing in here, whats going on
[05:42:10] <drcoolbp> we are discussing the name voting and community polling in general
[05:42:23] <kobach> figured
[05:42:27] <kobach> carry on
[05:42:29] <drussell> MrBluze, No, that's another point I was going to make in a bit...
[05:42:32] * kobach sits down
[05:42:52] * drussell back in a few moments... Sorry I'm so hobbled right now :(
[05:42:59] <MrBluze> no worries
[05:43:24] <prospectacle> Potentially could have write-in candidates? Put "newoption++" in your comment
[05:43:57] <drcoolbp> for the name vote that may not work
[05:44:00] <drcoolbp> let me explain
[05:44:11] <prospectacle> you're right, the domain needs to be owned already
[05:44:14] <drcoolbp> we have secured domains ourselves and via users
[05:44:16] <MrBluze> well the criteria, at a minimum, for name candidates are: the domain name(s) must be already reserved
[05:44:17] <drcoolbp> exactly
[05:44:35] <prospectacle> getting ahead of myself
[05:44:40] <Ethanol-fueled> I am hobbled as well, from the ethanol-fuel and a long day working like a Mexican, so i'm gonna split. But I'll be back tomorrow and hopefully with meaningful things to contribute.
[05:44:44] <MrBluze> and that domain MUST be made freely available to us if it is selected, no strings attached, no cost involved.
[05:44:55] <MrBluze> lol cheers Ethanol-fueled :)
[05:45:08] <Ethanol-fueled> Good night everybody.

[05:46:08] <prospectacle> Maybe this has come up already, but secret ballots were invented to prevent political violence. Not much risk of that here.
[05:46:30] <drcoolbp> well, we are trying to avoid bias voting
[05:46:51] <drussell> prospectacle, They were invented for that but have many positive side effects
[05:47:17] <prospectacle> drcoolbp: like voting to spite something that is doing well?
[05:47:20] <MrBluze> well the main thing is voting continues and counting does not commence until after voting is finished
[05:47:26] <drcoolbp> something like that
[05:49:04] <drcoolbp> okay, so main points that have been made so far: we need to get this name vote right, slash voting is horrid, we can re-write slash system but that would take work, we could use another system
[05:49:20] * MrBluze nods
[05:49:22] <drcoolbp> we need a balance, the name should be chosen soon
[05:49:29] <prospectacle> Just to add to options: DemoChoice is FOSS php web voting
[05:49:42] * drcoolbp writes that down
[05:49:47] <MrBluze> yeah we could just run a web voting app for this
[05:49:52] <MrBluze> and then take it away for use another time
[05:50:05] <MrBluze> as long as we are able to cross-reference votes with email addresses
[05:50:11] <MrBluze> and then look those up in the userbase
[05:50:23] <drcoolbp> that would take a lot of work potentially
[05:51:33] <prospectacle> Is it possible to hide comments for a story, I mean from users, but not from ops? Then you could do a comment-scraping system without it being public. You could easily verify users, etc.
[05:51:37] <MrBluze> well its less work than writing something in perl
[05:52:00] <MrBluze> its just matching two tables
[05:52:10] <drcoolbp> anything is possible, but prospectacle: that may also require a significant amount of work
[05:52:23] <prospectacle> ok
[05:52:24] <drussell> I think for the name vote we could code our own fairly easily, i'll elaborate in a few moments, I'm still lying on the floor reading sideways... I should RandR LOL
[05:52:42] <kobach> crazy canadian
[05:52:58] <kobach> :p
[05:53:05] <drcoolbp> drussell, maybe, but having it integrated into slash would make it more difficult, slash is...lets say counter-intuitive in some ways
[05:53:06] -!- kobach [kobach!~nope@Soylent/Staff/IRC/kobach] has parted #staff
[05:53:38] <MrBluze> well i know i could write this easily in php, or whatever - can write it in an afternoon .. but we are then looking at a development cycle and its better to get something off the shelf
[05:53:43] <drussell> I understand that and I envision eventually hot rodding the poll system, but I bet we could do a one off for the name vote
[05:54:42] <drcoolbp> drussell: if you care to volunteer an effort to that effect.....
[05:54:45] <drcoolbp> = )
[05:55:11] <prospectacle> demochoice hosts votes too, for up to 12000 voters (paste in a list of email addresses).
[05:55:21] <drussell> It also looks a heck of a lot more professional if it's well integrated into the site, but hey, if an off-the-shelf solution fits, then by all means we should not reinvent the wheel
[05:55:40] <drcoolbp> prospectacle: noted
[05:55:57] <MrBluze> well for the name choice
[05:56:05] <MrBluze> its not worth waiting and developing a voting system etc
[05:56:17] <MrBluze> because it changes everything about the site presentation
[05:56:47] <drussell> Yes, that's one of my main points, this vote is very important and should not be a stopgap solution even if it's not what is used in the future
[05:56:50] <MrBluze> and if we are to actually change names, it is a monumental shift - we change skins, we change community perceptions, we build new memories etc
[05:57:17] <MrBluze> we were only going to rush it if we had our domain name stolen
[05:57:37] <drcoolbp> still, it seems pertinent to do it sooner rather then later
[05:57:48] <drcoolbp> again, not "rushing" it
[05:58:19] <MrBluze> yes, because the longer we dont change, the mroe we are stuck with soylentnews
[05:58:26] <MrBluze> be that good or bad, i can't say
[05:58:41] <audioguy> We have an email for all registered users. Send them all a unique token. They vote ny email, and the token can no longer be used. Easy.
[05:59:02] <MrBluze> audioguy: good idea
[05:59:12] <MrBluze> or can the token take them to the dreamchoice or some voting box
[06:00:24] <audioguy> They hit reply on the email, after markimng one box (or whatever) and send it to an address. We grep all the emails (maildir format) t=for the token-vote line, kick out any dupes, and total. Could do it all will a short shell script.
[06:00:44] <MrBluze> ok
[06:00:50] <audioguy> Really without even a script.
[06:00:53] <MrBluze> numbering choices
[06:01:02] <drcoolbp> that might work for this vote, but not a long-term solution
[06:01:04] <MrBluze> yeah u can do that with a single grep command
[06:01:11] <MrBluze> well for this vote is all we need for now
[06:01:16] <drcoolbp> yes
[06:01:19] <audioguy> I do thatkind of stuff all the time trying to track dowmn email problems. ;-)
[06:01:27] <MrBluze> because everything changes once we work out our business model and so on
[06:01:32] <drussell> That's part of what I'm saying with this being a one-off... However we collect the vote data in the first place, if it's a secret ballot all the procesing only needs to be done once at the end, we just have to collect the data

[06:02:34] <MrBluze> two week voting period
[06:02:47] <MrBluze> and restrict new UID's after this has started
[06:03:02] <MrBluze> but that's easy .. they dont get the email (facepalm)
[06:03:15] <prospectacle> I humbly resubmit my journal php script to use in processing the email replies.
[06:03:26] <MrBluze> :)
[06:03:27] <prospectacle> But it only works for approval voting
[06:03:31] * drcoolbp checks his journal
[06:04:11] <drcoolbp> <FoobarBazbot> drcoolbp: I like it, though I recommend awk over sh or php (and would volunteer to write it)
[06:05:10] <MrBluze> for the name choice, i think preferential voting is the way to go
[06:05:35] <drcoolbp> please explain
[06:05:51] <MrBluze> you number boxes 1 to n, in order of preference, of the names
[06:05:58] <MrBluze> all boxes must have a number or the vote is invalidated
[06:06:11] <prospectacle> which counting system?
[06:06:21] <MrBluze> that depends
[06:06:35] <MrBluze> but u can do first past the post
[06:06:55] <MrBluze> but usually for this, need a majority of votes in a round
[06:07:00] <drussell> Yes, it should not be a simple majority wins either preference rank 1 to n or give each choice a -5 to +5 or whatever and then do some processing
[06:07:13] <MrBluze> yeah u can do that
[06:07:30] <MrBluze> well if there are 10 choices, and choice 2 gets > 50%, it wins
[06:07:35] <MrBluze> that is, >50% of 1's
[06:07:38] <prospectacle> points-per-preference tends to be less complicated than instant-run-off (the one where you eliminate candidates until a majority)
[06:07:40] <MrBluze> but that is rare
[06:08:06] <MrBluze> well as long as ppl knwo the rules of the gmae beforehand, it is fair
[06:08:08] * drcoolbp is logging the important bits of this convo for later review
[06:08:48] <drussell> I think it needs to be tallied something like http://en.wikipedia.org
[06:09:22] <MrBluze> http://en.wikipedia.org
[06:10:38] <MrBluze> in australia they take the votes of the least popular candidate, and allocate second preference of those votes to the existing candidates
[06:10:48] <mattie_p> ok, back and caught up
[06:10:52] <MrBluze> and they continue doing this until a majority is reached
[06:11:11] <MrBluze> in this way, every vote counts ,even people who vote for losers
[06:11:19] <drcoolbp> mattie_P I logged important bits, I can send you
[06:11:26] <mattie_p> I've got them
[06:11:41] * drcoolbp notes "damn he's good"
[06:11:50] <mattie_p> mainly discussion like this was why I chose not to hold the name vote today
[06:12:03] <MrBluze> fair enough, mattie_p
[06:12:15] <drcoolbp> yes, we scraped a few intelligent people from #Soylent
[06:12:27] <MrBluze> lol drcoolbp not a trivial task
[06:13:05] <audioguy> "If you want to vote in the name election, you must enable in your user settings the send me summaries option by xx/xx/xx. This gives your permission for us to send you a ballot. You can turn it off afterwards."

[06:21:31] <drussell> prospectacle, That's part of the reason that, at least after a cursory look, something like the Kemeny–Young looks like a good type of way, but I'm no voting expert :)

[06:23:14] <drussell> Yes, Borda could be an option as well, there are several similar systems with various advantages and disadvantages in various scenarios
[06:23:53] <drussell> Kemeny–Young should be easy enough as long as the number of candidates is reasonable

[06:37:49] <audioguy> Not dns this time.
[06:37:53] <mattie_p> makes sense
[06:38:49] <mattie_p> we need to keep a knowledge base of all these fixes we do
[06:39:20] <mattie_p> so that way when we see X, Y, and Z, it is A; but when we see X, Y, and !Z, it is B

[06:40:20] <MrBluze> Rc
[06:40:47] <audioguy> I do not see him logged in yet.
[06:40:58] <drcoolbp> he's switching computers
[06:42:46] <NCommander> Alright
[06:42:48] <NCommander> I'm online properly
[06:42:50] <NCommander> Taking a look
[06:43:08] <audioguy> Everything is down.
[06:43:22] <NCommander> Even SSH
[06:43:24] <NCommander> WTF
[06:43:37] <MrBluze> Hmm
[06:43:37] <mattie_p> restart the linode then
[06:43:41] <mattie_p> ?
[06:44:05] <mattie_p> services shouldn't break that easy, though
[06:44:12] <NCommander> Give me a sec, I'm looking
[06:44:14] <audioguy> I am in now, through ssh
[06:44:20] <NCommander> Linodes should auto-restart if they go down
[06:44:27] <audioguy> Can I just reboot?
[06:44:44] <audioguy> Will it come up proerly with a a reboot?
[06:44:57] <audioguy> properly
[06:45:15] <audioguy> I can be your hands, speak to me....
[06:45:17] <NCommander> Maybe
[06:45:19] <NCommander> Stand by
[06:45:22] <NCommander> I want to see why its broken
[06:45:23] <MrBluze> Want to take a log of running processes first
[06:45:30] <mattie_p> check the physical layer =)
[06:45:54] <mattie_p> sorry, not contributing

[07:06:25] <MrBluze> one annoying suggestion: can the default error message of varnish be made into something that looks like a website message?
[07:06:25] <audioguy> That is my work, yes. And here: http://wiki.soylentnews.org
[07:06:30] <mattie_p> talk to you tomorrow
[07:06:34] <drcoolbp> goodnight audioguy, MrBluze, mattie_p, Ncommander

[07:07:11] <mattie_p> audioguy: those are decent notes
[07:07:20] <mattie_p> I still do, technically, but I need to pass it
[07:07:29] <mattie_p> NCommander is fixing
[07:07:43] <mattie_p> I need to go to bed as well

[07:08:07] <drcoolbp> goodnight, I'll be free all day tomorrow

[07:08:30] <audioguy> I tried Commodore and mecollbp upstaged me with Admiral.
[07:08:46] <audioguy> mrcoolbp
[07:08:58] <mattie_p> I gave him a promotion the other day for services rendered
[07:09:03] <mattie_p> you could be an admiral too
[07:09:28] <audioguy> I could take it for a while but need to sleep soon as well.
[07:09:37] <mattie_p> I don't do the title thing because a) everyone knows I'm in charge if I'm .op; and b) it messes up my idlerpg
[07:09:44] <audioguy> But I want FleetAdmiral,.
[07:09:54] <mattie_p> You could be vice admiral
[07:10:04] <mattie_p> that sounds pretty nice
[07:10:16] <audioguy> I aim only for the top, buddy.
[07:10:22] <mattie_p> haha
[07:10:53] <mattie_p> anyway, what I was talking about earlier from my email was: Step 0) Document ALL of our current systems and dependencies. In other words, anything and everything that your group uses, needs, or has implemented, where it is stored/hosted, what versions, their dependencies, username and passwords, needs to be documented. Do Nothing Else Until You Have Done This (except emergency fixes).
[07:11:17] <mattie_p> if our implementation of mysql requires SSL and a cert, that needs to be part of the documentation
[07:11:35] <audioguy> The people who are a position to do that for this kind of problem have not dones so. They need to be flogged, and made to swab the decks.

[11:58:57] <NCommander> FatPhil, not yet. I dropped an email with my TODO list on how to fix shit more permamently in the future
[11:59:07] <NCommander> FatPhil, your comments on the staff manifesto hit home
[11:59:08] <FatPhil> Perhaps we need a calendar page for important dates - domain renewals, certificate renewals, paying the electricity bill, etc.
[11:59:19] <NCommander> FatPhil, oh good, something else we can put on services
[11:59:24] <NCommander> svc == random shit box
[12:04:19] <NCommander> FatPhil, did you see my email? (I'm not sure the list is sending properly, I'm not getting bouncebacks)
[12:14:00] <FatPhil> reading it now
[12:15:25] <FatPhil> just for reference, I've never encountered a sane human being who has anything good to say about gerrit.
[12:18:07] <FatPhil> A mailing list (per component) works fine. That's how linux has been working forever and a day, and nobody thinks that's a bad way of doing things.
[12:18:49] <NCommander> FatPhil, I despise having to suck patches off a mailing list.
[12:19:16] <NCommander> FatPhil, I generally have to leave mutt installed for doing that, and its frustating if I'm not working from my usual systems
[12:21:36] <NCommander> FatPhil, I haven't use gerrit a lot, but it didn't hugely suck when I was involved with cyanogenmod.
[12:25:53] <FatPhil> NCommander: when do you "have to suck patches off a mailing list"? I've never had to do that.
[12:26:22] <NCommander> FatPhil, generally because someone sends a patchset to a mailing list, and have to either save each email automatically, or do mutt magic
[12:26:30] <FatPhil> But why?
[12:26:38] <FatPhil> In order to achieve what?
[12:27:23] <FatPhil> Review on-list. If you're dealing with pull requests, then use real pull requests.
[12:30:00] <NCommander> FatPhil, yeah, some people like to abuse git send-patches.
[12:31:21] <NCommander> github has a decent pull reviewer dealing with diffs, and that's what I was using. I wrote about gerrit because you said you couldn't use github
[12:32:29] <FatPhil> If people have good branch behaviour (one branch per changeset, rebased onto master), then pull and merge are trivial operations.
[12:32:41] <FatPhil> there's no need for any tools apart fromn git itself.
[12:32:47] <FatPhil> I can't sign up for github
[12:33:12] <FatPhil> That doesn't seen to matter, as I can pull other people's repos just using the git command line
[12:33:30] <FatPhil> I can host my own repo for other people to pull from
[12:33:53] <NCommander> FatPhil, and I can count on one hand I frequently I see "good" git branches from people who don't frequently work with the kernel
[12:34:25] * NCommander has occassionally sliced off organs with git rebase and I work with TianoCore and the kernel regularly
[12:35:46] <NCommander> If you think we can get a crash course written so people can learn to automagically do the necessary rebasing and such, then I'll remove my objections
[12:36:00] <NCommander> But frequently, you get managed branches
[12:36:13] <NCommander> At least with send-patches, I don't need to worry about someone knowing how to use rebase
[12:36:14] <FatPhil> If rebasing fails, you're probably not doing it often enough.
[12:36:35] <FatPhil> I started a wiki page for common git tasks
[12:36:51] <FatPhil> http://wiki.soylentnews.org
[12:37:01] <NCommander> Youve never made a typo that condem your changeset somewhere ugly and needed serious git foo to recover them?
[12:37:08] <NCommander> Or smashed changes together?
[12:37:19] * NCommander has learned to do git format-patches before ever touching git rebase
[12:38:33] <FatPhil> I don't consider myself a git guru at all, and I've managed to make everything that I show the outside world look as if I have a logical mind.
[12:38:49] <NCommander> Fair enough
[12:38:55] * NCommander notes Canonical uses bzr almost exclusively
[12:39:24] <NCommander> My RL git experience is limited mostly to vendors, vendor kernels, and TianoCore
[12:39:36] <FatPhil> vendor kernels = nightmare
[12:40:05] <NCommander> FatPhil, welcome to my life
[12:40:19] <NCommander> FatPhil, I was very happy to escape that in favor of working on UEFI
[12:40:39] <FatPhil> Ewe, I would guess that's even worse
[12:40:54] * NCommander once had to deal with a kernel that had been imported into perforce with no preversation of history :-)
[12:41:08] <NCommander> FatPhil, TBH, its not horrible
[12:41:21] <FatPhil> Vendors don't want to let you see how they work. It's always patchbombs.
[12:42:23] <NCommander> FatPhil, eh, actually, one vendor does use git and is not complete braindead
[12:42:25] <FatPhil> I wrote a haky perl script which would split a megapatch into the white-space only changes and the actual changes. That made life a lot easier as vendor loved combining the two. (hiding 4000 lines of real change in the middle of 200000 lines of reindenting)
[12:42:42] <NCommander> FatPhil, *wince*
[12:42:48] <NCommander> Yeah, I've dealt with that
[12:43:11] <NCommander> The problem is that getting people like the UI guys who aren't full time software development (i.e., we're lucky if they know svn) to not slice limbs off
[12:43:36] <NCommander> and while I *like* git, it is stupidly easy to take a limb or two off with it
[12:44:19] <FatPhil> I've used many rcs in the past. Git is the easiest and most logical. It's almost easy and almost logical, which contrasts it against most of the others.
[12:44:36] <NCommander> "easiest" is relative.
[12:45:07] <FatPhil> Well, you can grow back limbs with git reflog
[12:45:09] * NCommander has had disputes on migrating from git -> svn because of people having issues with git. I just had this conversation w/ a friend who I consider very talented wanting to use svn over git
[12:45:15] <NCommander> FatPhil, yes well :-P
[12:45:31] <NCommander> FatPhil, if you want to define our git best practices, I'll sign off on it.
[12:53:33] <FatPhil> It took me a very long time to actually like git (I won't tell you what I kept comparing it to, as you will laugh so hard you will probably injure an internal organ, or fall off your chair), but now I use it for *all* my own projects. Even simple things. The overhead is so low, and the benefits are measurable.
[12:54:33] <FatPhil> The wiki is kind of evolving in the direction of that. One problem is that I have no idea about the github side of things.
[12:55:41] <NCommander> FatPhil, what is your issue w/ github? I wish I knew about that in advance before we went there full time
[12:55:57] Bluze is now known as Mrbluze_zzz
[12:56:23] <Mrbluze_zzz> Just a thought
[12:57:14] <Mrbluze_zzz> Nvm dumb idea
[12:57:25] <Mrbluze_zzz> Gnite interesting convo
[12:59:15] <FatPhil> I simply cannot create an account. It looks like I don't need an account to just have read access to the repos, so it's presently not a biggie.
[13:00:39] <FatPhil> None of the browsers on my machine are supported. (Mostly because they don't have javascript, and github demands javascript)
[13:00:51] <FatPhil> <--- luddite
[13:12:29] <NCommander> FatPhil, TBH, that's fair
[13:12:42] <NCommander> FatPhil, if you just post pull requests, we can accomidate that if we can get a sane workflow hammered out
[13:13:00] <NCommander> FatPhil, we were hosted on independent infrastructure for awhile, but no one really liked fusionforge, and most people liked github so ....
[13:14:59] <FatPhil> AH, actually there is a problem with me not having a github account - I can't see the bug-tracker
[13:17:41] <NCommander> Fuck
[13:17:44] <NCommander> That should be world-readable
[13:17:48] <NCommander> Let me see if I can fix that
[13:18:27] <FatPhil> Last link I saw I was unable to follow, IIRC
[13:19:00] <NCommander> appears not
[13:19:01] <NCommander> Crap
[13:19:06] * NCommander facepalms
[13:19:17] <NCommander> FatPhil, I think this falls into the "poor communication kills" stuff
[13:29:54] <mechanicjay> NCommander: I'll try and check the old services box later today. When I looked at the mail and webserver logs two days ago there were still some clients hitting it from stale DNS entries.
[13:35:39] <NCommander> mechanicjay, thanks. Can you make me an account on svc?
[13:36:11] <NCommander> mechanicjay, and then when we're both on normal schedules, lets duct tape our heads together and see if we can get an idea on how best to do single-sign on
[13:42:25] <mattie_p> hey folks, I'm back
[13:43:16] <mattie_p> coffee is brewing, I'll be ready to face the day soon
[13:43:51] <FatPhil> I'm just reading a page at www.Schneier.com. His favicon.ico is very very very similar to soylentnews'
[13:45:46] <mattie_p> oh, saw and email, Khyber
[13:45:52] <mattie_p> re: khyber
[13:46:12] <mattie_p> he was drunk and spouting off, so we quieted him
[13:47:03] <mattie_p> then he started making threats about attacking the site with a DOS/DDOS, at which point xlefay kickbanned him
[13:47:12] <mattie_p> He is not banned from soylentnews, merely IRC

[13:51:47] <mattie_p> hey, paulej72, what's up?
[13:52:07] <paulej72> Cold is kicking my ass bad
[13:53:19] <paulej72> LaminatorX story broke the site too. He needs to put some breaks in his pi approximation
[13:56:40] <mattie_p> css should force a break in there somewhere, shouldn't it?
[13:57:26] * NCommander works on his "for fun" project
[13:57:38] <paulej72> That would require updating the code and the best I could do is hide the overflow
[13:57:50] <FatPhil> not CSS, there's perl that inserts breaks (if it's what I'm thinking of)
[13:57:56] <mattie_p> well, its already logged I'm sure
[13:58:08] <mattie_p> NCommander you see my update regarding Khyber?
[13:58:13] <NCommander> mattie_p, no
[13:58:19] <mattie_p> scroll up
[13:58:28] <mattie_p> like ... 10 lines
[13:58:48] <NCommander> mattie_p, I'm loosing backscroll when the connection is flakely. I don't have 10 lines of backscroll
[13:59:04] <mattie_p> ahh,
[13:59:11] <mattie_p> <mattie_p> he was drunk and spouting off, so we quieted him
[13:59:17] <mattie_p> then he started making threats about attacking the site with a DOS/DDOS, at which point xlefay kickbanned him
[13:59:23] <mattie_p> He is not banned from soylentnews, merely IRC
[13:59:35] <NCommander> mattie_p, yeah, I got a nasty gram about that on email
[13:59:42] <mattie_p> I saw that.
[14:00:11] <mattie_p> xlefay has the logs, NCommander. I warned him twice to calm down before we even quieted him
[14:01:48] <NCommander> mattie_p, I think we need to formalize rules on when we ban, etc.

[14:04:10] <LaminatorX> Lovely, isn't it.
[14:04:45] <LaminatorX> I like how it counts that number as a single word for wc purposes.
[14:04:50] <NCommander> LaminatorX, NICE

[14:06:28] <LaminatorX> I suppose I could. It would take quite a few to not stretch the screen though. That's thousands of digits.
[14:09:17] <FatPhil> shrink the font on each subsequent line...
[14:09:56] <paulej72> LaminatorX that is only ten breaks or so
[14:24:45] <FatPhil> standard comment splitting is 50 chars, for reference
[14:24:46] <FatPhil> Slash/Utility/Data/Data.pm:The maximum length of a word. Default is 50 (breakhtml_wordlength in vars).
[14:24:49] <FatPhil> Slash/Utility/Data/Data.pm: $mwl = $mwl || $constants->{breakhtml_wordlength} || 50;
[14:26:46] <mattie_p> wonder why it didn't line break it, then?
[14:28:03] <LaminatorX> That's 48.5KB of pi. It woult take a lot more than ten kinw breaks to bust that into 50coumn.
[14:28:39] <LaminatorX> Some line break rules I've seen won't split mid word.
[14:31:31] <FatPhil> presumable only comments are processed not the stories themselves. IT was an anti-vandalism thing, so I guess they presume editors don't vandalise
[14:32:19] <mattie_p> well, that is obviously a stupid presumption. Us editors have done far more harm then the commenters.
[14:34:02] <LaminatorX> I gues Slashdot_Page_Widener_Guy never had any stories accepted.
[14:35:20] <FatPhil> "what could possibly go wrong"
[14:44:12] <paulej72> FatPhil unfortuantly that code only runs on comments and not on story submissions
[14:45:58] <paulej72> FatPhil a follow up question on git commits. If I have multiple files that I am updating, but they all have interdependent code changes and one files should not merge without the others, what is the best method on commiting these files.

[14:49:24] <mechanicjay> bah
[14:50:07] <drcoolbp> humbug?
[14:50:08] <mechanicjay> NCommander: when the old linode box was migrated over, httpd didn't come back up, so I don't know who might still be getting at wiki.soylentnews.org through that machine.
[14:50:11] <FatPhil> paulej72: if they all interdepend, then they are one change - one commit
[14:50:40] <mechanicjay> postfix is seeing like one or two bogus incomming connections/day for the last 3 days though, so I think it's safe to say no one is talking to that node for mail anymore.
[14:51:00] <mechanicjay> I just restarted httpd and will watch the logs. If we don't any traffic by the end of the day, lets just kill the box.
[14:51:21] <paulej72> FatPhil thanks, I have been trying to do that, but sometimes forget that a file should be there.
[14:51:49] <NCommander> mechanicjay, honestly, I'm not sure I care that much. The DNS crisis shows up not a lot is respecting the TTL ...
[14:52:12] * NCommander notes that while the gopher portal is somewhat of a joke, we *will* get full WAP functionality out this which is awesome
[14:52:19] <mechanicjay> NCommander: yeah seems to be -- since it's been off the air for two days now anyway -- f it just kill it.
[14:52:28] <NCommander> mechanicjay, sweet. more refund money
[14:52:42] * mechanicjay would rock the gopher interface from my VMS box.
[14:53:30] <mechanicjay> NCommander: also, just sent you an email re: the services box
[14:53:48] <drcoolbp> mechanicjay, still getting errors on the email forwarding settings page
[14:54:33] <mechanicjay> drcoolbp: even with fresh browser / incognito chrome window?
[14:55:01] <paulej72> I aslo sent an email to the list about the svc box.
[14:55:24] * NCommander swears repeatively
[14:55:46] <mechanicjay> drcoolbp: regardless, I'm still going to try to rev the plugin when I get a chance.
[14:56:01] <drcoolbp> I restarted the browser
[14:56:14] <drcoolbp> let me try an incognito to just for s/g
[14:56:15] * paulej72 hopes that NCommander is not swearing at him
[14:56:50] <paulej72> :)
[14:57:00] <FatPhil> I haven't heard the word "awesome" used in the context of WAP for about a decade!
[14:57:31] <drcoolbp> mechanicjay now I'm having errors on the change password page too
[14:57:37] <paulej72> can someone fill me in what is a WAP?
[14:57:46] <NCommander> paulej72, microbrowsers on phone

[14:58:25] <drcoolbp> ah
[14:58:32] <drcoolbp> I stand corrected twice
[14:58:36] <NCommander> Basically, if you have GPRS, you can still use SoylentNews :-)
[14:58:41] * NCommander is a strong believer of Web 0.1
[14:58:56] <mechanicjay> drcoolbp: lame. Definitely a blocker for opening it up to all staff -- also there are some changes needed to the box to support mailboxes for all (like a separate mail volume and some quota management.
[14:59:17] <mechanicjay> alright, gotta drop off, I'll check in later.
[14:59:18] <drcoolbp> let me dig around more and see what else Ican break
[14:59:26] <drcoolbp> I'll let you know.

[15:01:29] <paulej72> what was it drcoolbp
[15:01:57] <drcoolbp> it's weird because it said <rack@REDACTED.fm> (expanded from <root@REDACTED.fm>): unknown user: "rack"
[15:02:34] <drcoolbp> I think it's on the user's end, but I can forward if you like

[15:04:24] <drcoolbp> I need to read more of that course
[15:04:44] <NCommander> drcoolbp, curious what he had to say about us using it
[15:05:11] <paulej72> drcoolbp i think that may have something to do with not having the proper svr records for the mail server some peopple have their mails servers set to block this. This message is void if we actually got or svr records all setup in DNS properly.
[15:05:29] <drcoolbp> He didn't comment too much on that aspect, but her was curious, I was mostly probing him about how it worked on various larger incidents
[15:05:49] <drcoolbp> paulej72: SVR = ?
[15:05:52] <drcoolbp> server?
[15:06:18] <paulej72> drcoolbp http://en.wikipedia.org
[15:06:24] <drcoolbp> thx
[15:06:29] <drcoolbp> we get a lot of those bounced emails, mostly from that damn newsletter....
[15:06:39] <drcoolbp> where do we stand on that? Is it opt-in yet?
[15:06:53] <paulej72> I think there is a open issue on this in the issue tracker
[15:07:11] <drcoolbp> yes
[15:07:24] <drcoolbp> We've had some angry users
[15:07:39] <drcoolbp> John was handling them when he was aboard
[15:08:18] <xlefay> Is it an idea to make a fax of sorts?
[15:08:56] <paulej72> drcoolbp the newsletter is still optout, but there is a link at the bottom of the email to show where to set the preferences.
[15:09:20] <drcoolbp> fair enough...
[15:10:14] <paulej72> drcoolbp that feature was added on the 16th of feb or there abouts

[15:12:05] <drcoolbp> suggestions has been even lower than that
[15:12:21] <mattie_p> hey, welcome back xlefay
[15:12:22] <drcoolbp> but there were some decent ones
[15:12:45] <xlefay> Thanks, that's what I needed to know. ;)
[15:12:53] <mattie_p> xlefay, do you have Khyber's pm threats available?
[15:12:57] <xlefay> mattie_p: thanks :)
[15:15:38] <xlefay> I can share some excerpts really, but I don't see why we even continue to pay attention to him. He's a hothead and fairly sure his behavior speaks for himself. I had hoped we had redmine or something like that by now so we can list bans and stuff on their in a private section... but I guess I'll make a bot that'll feed it to a DB and build a small web frontend so we can actually search for crap and shit
[15:15:50] <xlefay> s/their/there/
[15:16:32] <mattie_p> he's stirring up nonsense in the comments. I responded but I'm going to let it be for a while. If more comments start stirring just want to make sure we have what he did available
[15:16:52] <drcoolbp> xlefay: regarding redmine: it's ruby-on-rails, do we have any ruby devs on staff?
[15:17:47] <xlefay> mattie_p: fairly sure he also threatened a few days ago in #soylent least I got a PM from someone saying they hoped my server would stay out of it. but yeah it's available
[15:18:00] <mattie_p> works for me
[15:18:25] <xlefay> drcoolbp: we don't need something like RoR perse but.. something that can help other groups have a bugtracker and other crap internally.
[15:18:34] <xlefay> Writing up an e-mail about the email piping idea now
[15:19:19] <drcoolbp> xlefay: audioguy has been looking into using slash for staff communication, other than the mailing list we have no other suggestions for this I'm aware of
[15:20:05] <drcoolbp> (and redmine)
[15:20:05] <xlefay> The only down side of that is that we can't effectively use that for bug tracking, sharing files, etc..
[15:20:32] <drcoolbp> that is true...
[15:21:14] <xlefay> To be honest, I would have prefered to see something like 'phabricator' (mind the LIKE) but I guess that won't work for everyone since those things are generally JS heavy.
[15:21:41] <xlefay> (although phabricator for instance comes with a CLI interface)
[15:22:18] <xlefay> I suggested that earlier but zford rejected it because it was an "all in one package" which is understandable and I agree to a certain extend but it is one common place for all the stuff
[15:22:29] <drcoolbp> xlefay: what is the downside to having bugs on github and communication on slash? (we can link to git "issues"
[15:23:10] <xlefay> There's no downside perse, if that's all you need.. but IRC for instance, we don't have a need for github at this point nor will editors (besides "slashcode" itself)
[15:23:11] <drcoolbp> (also note: we just migrated all bugs to github)
[15:24:09] <drcoolbp> xlefay: I'd really like to investigate this staff communication thing as much as possible, it seems a lot of us are leaning towards using slash, but there are downsides to that for sure
[15:24:10] <xlefay> It's really about being able to share files and such. A staff slash instance seems a bit limited to just that and isn't really intended for that usage.
[15:24:11] <mattie_p> xlefay, looks like our community is handling it themselves, after my post. I'm going to stay out of it. http://soylentnews.org
[15:26:52] <xlefay> mattie_p: I'm done with that matter really. The ban was justified; the threats, the constant poisoning of the atmosphere, etc.. I can't really care at this point, to be honest the ban was supposed to be temporarily till he cooled down but since he's just spreading FUD now I don't see a reason to remove it now. It'll only send the wrong message e.g. "everyone that gets banned, spread fud and you'll get unbanned" which isn't what we want.
[15:28:03] <paulej72> just to chime in, audiogy has hit a dead end in getting slash to be logged in users only. The main slash perl module may be able to be reworked to allow this, but doing on th front end pages does not seem to work.
[15:28:03] <xlefay> I'm still writing an elaborate proposal regarding rules on IRC, methods of banning, etc.. hopefully I'll be done with that in a couple of days to send for review to the mailing list. I'll have you preview it before that time if you like?
[15:29:09] <drcoolbp> mattie_p ^^
[15:29:16] <drcoolbp> paulej72: hmmm
[15:29:45] <drcoolbp> paulej72: the mailing list is working for now, do you have any ideas for another communication method?
[15:30:08] <drcoolbp> i.e. are we happy with this as a short-to-medium-term solution?
[15:30:54] <paulej72> hate to say it but the forums sound like a viable solution.
[15:30:58] <xlefay> drcoolbp: personally, I wouldn't be. It's just more maintenance when we move to something else. e.g. moving bugs, etc.. It's just not worth the time and effort. I'd rather wait yet another week for a real solution.
[15:31:08] <NCommander> That was an epic timing for a power outage
[15:31:18] <drcoolbp> it always is
[15:31:24] <xlefay> paulej72: only if teams aren't kickstarting their own projects.. in which something like redmine would be more useful
[15:31:32] * NCommander lost power 30 seconds after declaring himself commander
[15:31:32] <paulej72> NCommander at least nothing happened here

[15:32:04] <NCommander> !todo
[15:32:04] <baaaacon> todo for ncommander: 1) make sure install-slashsite installs proper schema 2) port slash to mod_perl 2 3) confirm w/ paulej72 that we are good to TRANSFORM AND ROLLOUT 4) rename Janek Kozicki to cosurgi 5) quit smoking 6) look at rewiring pollbooth for SERIOUS votes 7) rename stderr_dk -> stderr
[15:32:23] <NCommander> Anyone decent at ASCII art?
[15:32:31] <paulej72> xlefay I need to look at redmine to see what it is, never heard of it before you mentioning it
[15:32:34] <mattie_p> xlefay that would be good
[15:32:36] <xlefay> NCommander: Ask kobach, seriously.
[15:32:55] <mattie_p> sorry, was taking out trash and recycling before the truck gets here.
[15:32:57] <drcoolbp> paulej72: http://www.redmine.com
[15:32:58] <xlefay> He even has a bacon ascii art... you don't want to see it really, it just leads to being hungry.
[15:33:00] <NCommander> xlefay, actually, I'm just going to rip off the soylentnews logo
[15:33:02] <drcoolbp> oops!'

[15:33:15] <drcoolbp> paulej72: http://www.redmine.org

[15:33:19] <drcoolbp> not the other one sorry
[15:33:54] <drcoolbp> freaking autocomplete...
[15:34:25] <NCommander> I need to reboot it
[15:34:26] <NCommander> er
[15:34:28] <NCommander> reboot me
[15:34:38] <paulej72> Does redmine require javascript?
[15:35:42] <paulej72> we have some people here that greatly dislike JS and refuse to run code from some sites. They refuse to use GitHub for that reason.
[15:36:06] <xlefay> I'm fairly sure it has some JS.. but honestly, a little bit can't hurt
[15:37:30] <mattie_p> honestly, some people are so freaking scared of JS. they have a phobia of it or something
[15:37:41] <paulej72> I am on the issues tab on redmine right now and I do not see a new button. Can't submit and issue on that :)
[15:38:11] <xlefay> paulej72: you probably have to be signed in. So whatever we're looking for, we might want to hold off till we've got some integration with the main site, or ldap or whatever?
[15:38:11] <NCommander> Ok
[15:38:13] <drcoolbp> this is the online demo: http://demo.redmine.org
[15:38:13] * NCommander is back properly
[15:38:25] <paulej72> mattie_p some people have a ligitimate secrity issue with running third party JS
[15:38:30] <NCommander> xlefay, if it can authorize against openid, that's the easy route
[15:39:06] <xlefay> NCommander: fairly sure redmine can.. but I just want to re-note to everyone... I'm not saying redmine perse, it's just something that first came to mind, we should look into other options too ;-)
[15:39:19] * xlefay notes redmine has been around for ages
[15:39:25] <drcoolbp> a few people mentioned it
[15:39:32] <drcoolbp> It's worth at least looking into
[15:39:41] <xlefay> yea
[15:39:42] <mattie_p> paulej72 I mean that's their call and everything, but they're going to miss out on stuff and its their own fault.
[15:41:00] <paulej72> If we are looking at different systems, we should at least look at the need for JS as a selection criteria.
[15:41:21] <xlefay> paulej72: in all honesty, we can even strip out JS at some places if we really need to.
[15:42:18] <paulej72> I am not saying it doesn't need to be no JS, but it would be nice if it was funcional without it.
[15:42:29] <xlefay> I agree with that
[15:43:09] <paulej72> xlefay what is you opinion that redline has 4239 open issues at the moment?
[15:43:31] <xlefay> paulej72: do you have a link?
[15:43:43] <paulej72> http://www.redmine.org
[15:44:13] <drcoolbp> hahaha
[15:44:16] <paulej72> 1145 of them are defects : http://www.redmine.org
[15:44:49] <xlefay> Does seem like a lot eh. Redmine's been around for a long time it's to be expected they got a lot of issues; but how much of them are valid and how much depend on server config, etc?
[15:45:03] <mattie_p> back in a few

[15:45:42] <xlefay> paulej72: honestly, I'm not that scared of those issues, least they are known and reported ;)
[15:46:40] <paulej72> I have used trac in the past for a project that I submitted bugs to. Can't comment much about it.
[15:46:59] <xlefay> https://bh-demo2.apache.org seems new but bnice
[15:47:23] <xlefay> but prolly filled with js
[15:47:43] <xlefay> trac is pretty nice too. ;-)
[15:47:49] <drcoolbp> xlefay: are you talking about issue tracking specifically? or a combination of staff communication AND the former? Should they be separate? Linked? Discuss:
[15:48:36] <xlefay> drcoolbp: I'm mostly talking about the ability for teams to track issues, do internal communication, kickstart new projects (and allowing the community to be involved directly), etc..
[15:49:01] <xlefay> Like a central place for a team's stuff, where people will know where everything is, without ten or twenty different systems on which stuff can be housed
[15:49:14] <paulej72> some of these system can do it all
[15:49:31] <paulej72> some are more issues only.
[15:49:35] <xlefay> Which would be ideal I think.
[15:49:58] <drcoolbp> BRB: breakfast
[15:50:06] drcoolbp is now known as drcoolbp|breakfast
[15:51:14] <paulej72> trac I think can do the whole lot as it has a blog plugin, and a forum plugin
[15:51:23] <paulej72> pastebin plugin
[15:52:04] <paulej72> does git as well
[15:52:12] <xlefay> yea
[15:52:46] <drcoolbp|breakfast> public/private areas?
[15:55:47] <xlefay> Just send an email regarding mail piping and such
[15:55:56] <paulej72> drcoolbp|breakfast http://trac.edgewall.org
[15:56:05] * xlefay hopes it makes somewhat sense... I really suck at explaining things.
[15:57:35] <drcoolbp|breakfast> "mail piping?"
[15:58:04] <xlefay> drcoolbp|breakfast: it means that incoming emails are send to a program instead of a mailbox
[15:58:18] <xlefay> e.g. "piping email into something else" e.g. a program, or /dev/null, etc.
[15:58:23] <drcoolbp|breakfast> k
[15:58:45] <xlefay> (that's regarding incoming team emails, e.g. admin@, team+volunteers@etc...) read the mail ;)
[15:58:47] <xlefay> hope it makes sense.
[15:58:49] <drcoolbp|breakfast> I'd like to get that setup for the suggestions email (post directly to wiki somehow) way down the line
[15:59:27] <xlefay> drcoolbp|breakfast: that's a sure way to get people banned on the wiki a way to spam anyway
[16:00:00] <NCommander> Huh
[16:00:00] <NCommander> hrm
[16:00:35] <LaminatorX> We do a lot of mail piping here at the office, for automating dub requests between broadcasters.

[16:05:14] <drcoolbp> trac is looking pretty cool, downsides?
[16:05:33] <xlefay> There are always downsides really, think the wiki page describes them fairly.
[16:06:03] * drcoolbp is stil reading
[16:06:46] <paulej72> I would tend to go with a solution that someone on staff has used and installed over differnt system if they have similar capabilities.
[16:07:54] <xlefay> fairly sure one of us has at least used trac and another has used redmine, they're both used heavily over the webs... think we should take different things into consideration. Which one is more maintained? Which one has the best trackrecord, etc.

[17:04:06] <FatPhil> Mosaic with links to images, not inline images, I hope!
[17:05:02] <LaminatorX> As I recal, it was a Myers-Briggs test using radio-buttons. (ooooOOOOoooooo)
[17:05:11] <LaminatorX> Cutting edge interactivity!

[17:07:01] <NCommander> LaminatorX, need Gopher+ support

[20:28:53] <NCommander> Huh? Work? I thought you just lived on the couch and occasionally took timbits from the table.
[20:29:00] <xlefay> No.
[20:29:12] <xlefay> Looking for work atm .. but working on some nerdrpg magic site ;]
[20:29:20] <NCommander> xlefay, sounds lame.
[20:29:27] <xlefay> why?
[20:29:37] <paulej72> I have to get to work as well.
[20:30:11] <xlefay> nerdrpg as in idlerpg >..< magic because it's going to be awesome
[20:30:42] <NCommander> xlefay, we used to say that about slashcode. All we've ended up with is slashed wrists
[20:30:55] <xlefay> well.. there's no actual magic involved
[20:31:31] <NCommander> xlefay, so its like supergluing a horn to a pony

[20:43:12] <NCommander> xlefay, its the army. If it doesn't involve dedicated instructions, pointed lists, and gone several million dollars over budget, then its not government standard

[20:44:10] <NCommander> Well ... per general too
[20:44:25] <xlefay> Guess those billions are exceptions then.

[22:29:06] <paulej72_afk> I asked the dev people to add their info to the dev whoswho in an email I sent to the list, only FatPhil did so.

[23:22:55] <drcoolbp> audioguy: that was an intense email
[23:24:10] <xlefay> drcoolbp: lemme check
[23:24:49] <xlefay> drcoolbp: PM me where it has to go
[23:27:55] <xlefay> drcoolbp: send him a memo, it's done.
[23:28:06] <drcoolbp> I will
[23:28:08] <xlefay> (err, I send L a memo, in case you misunderstood that you had to)
[23:28:16] <drcoolbp> oh
[23:28:37] <drcoolbp> wait what? You will send him one?
[23:28:52] <xlefay> already done
[23:29:13] <drcoolbp> k thanks
[23:37:16] <xlefay> drcoolbp: does your mailbox work yet?
[23:37:20] <drcoolbp> yes
[23:37:24] <audioguy> Which email?
[23:37:24] <drcoolbp> it's mighty nice
[23:37:35] <drcoolbp> but kinda brokez0rz
[23:37:39] <xlefay> Can you PM me the mailserver you're using?
[23:37:44] <xlefay> It doesn't seem to be working here.
[23:38:01] <xlefay> "Retrieving folders 0%" ssl and crap all worked
[23:38:23] -!- Cyprus has quit [Quit: out]
[23:38:26] <drcoolbp> mechjay might be mad at me for sharing...
[23:38:36] <xlefay> don't worry, I created my own mailbox
[23:38:40] <drcoolbp> oh cool
[23:38:41] <audioguy> drcoolbp: I do tend to be very direct.
[23:39:14] <drcoolbp> audioguy: I kinda felt the same way, but you know a crap-ton more about dev so I'm glad it was you articulating the specifics
[23:39:52] <audioguy> Alway glad if even one other person agrees ;-)
[23:39:59] <drcoolbp> has anyone ever seen timezones denoted with the TZ-2 syntax?
[23:41:10] <drcoolbp> http://wiki.soylentnews.org that's what they are using
[23:41:29] <xlefay> thx drcoolbp, after the webmail I suppose the folders were created and imap started working ;-)
[23:41:46] <drcoolbp> yeah I have it on my phone now with threaded view
[23:41:55] * drcoolbp raises fist towards sky
[23:42:38] <audioguy> I think they are just indicating their time zone, UTC plus or minus how many hours.
[23:42:56] <drcoolbp> it's just a weird syntax
[23:43:04] <drcoolbp> should be UTC-2
[23:43:16] <audioguy> I am pretty sure is is just somwthing ad hoc someone started.
[23:43:20] <xlefay> drcoolbp: if you're working on the wiki anyway.. can you add Kobach to IRC?
[23:43:22] <drcoolbp> anyway /me is done being pedantic for now
[23:43:26] <drcoolbp> oh yah
[23:44:29] <drcoolbp> done
[23:44:44] <xlefay> Thank you, I'm sure kobach will be much obliged
[23:44:48] <xlefay> not sure why he isn't here....
[23:46:26] <drcoolbp> I have one guess what he's doing
[23:46:35] PropheciesWillBe is now known as Bender
[23:46:45] <xlefay> nooo
[23:46:46] <xlefay> don't start
[23:47:10] * drcoolbp was *trying* to start in #soylent
[23:48:51] <FatPhil> "TZ" means "timezone", "-2" means "-2". There really isn't much margin for misunderstanding
[23:50:31] <audioguy> Ah, FatPhil would like a chat.
[23:50:46] <audioguy> I mena, I would like a chat.
[23:50:47] <FatPhil> is that a statement or a question?
[23:50:49] <audioguy> mean
[23:51:00] <FatPhil> fire away
[23:51:06] <audioguy> Its my blasted by typing
[23:51:28] <FatPhil> I'm getting totally pissed off with perl sockets, so won't wind down for quite a while
[23:51:54] <FatPhil> just reading your long mail. Interesting. I agree with many of your points.
[23:51:55] <audioguy> Haven't really had a chance to get to know you. I know you have some perl skills, could you let me know approximately how far those extend?
[23:52:26] <FatPhil> been doing it as $DAYJOB for 20 years
[23:52:33] <audioguy> 'Lomg email' ;-) Wait till you actually see a 'long email' from me. ;-)
[23:52:52] <audioguy> So how comfortable are you with slash code?
[23:53:04] -!- kobach [kobach!~nope@Soylent/Staff/IRC/kobach] has joined #staff
[23:53:04] -!- mode/#staff [+v kobach] by FortuneTeller
[23:53:04] <FatPhil> I think perl's OO is a fucking abomination
[23:53:12] <kobach> drcoolbp: not here because i dont need to be :)
[23:53:31] <kobach> you know where to find me
[23:53:32] <FatPhil> So don't like slashcode, but I can probably dive into it as well as anyone can
[23:53:58] -!- kobach [kobach!~nope@Soylent/Staff/IRC/kobach] has parted #staff
[23:53:59] <FatPhil> it'll probably take a while to work out how it all relates to each other
[23:54:16] <audioguy> Abomination or not, do you feel confident enough to make changes in the core modeules, etc. ?
[23:54:46] <FatPhil> small changes, yes, big changes not yet
[23:54:48] <xlefay> Isn't there a CPAN module one can use to create some graphs of what's being called, etc, or so during runtime?
[23:55:02] <FatPhil> xlefay: there are probably 20
[23:55:22] <audioguy> xlefay: that is exactly the kind of things I do not know about perl, that I am hoping FatPhil does.
[23:55:27] <xlefay> aah, might be useful to look into those and see if that can help shed more light into slashcode ;)
[23:55:58] <FatPhil> There's Devel::Cover, but I've never used it.
[23:56:35] <audioguy> FatPhil: My problem is that I am a programmer, but not a perl programmer. Ican follow the basics and have been poring over the code tracing its pathes, but lose it when it gets to some specific perl syntax and idioms.
[23:56:35] <xlefay> audioguy: I'm just afraid it'll be a waste of time, as far as I know there hasn't been a vote whether we'll use a slash instance for staff..
[23:57:46] <audioguy> xlefay: there has not, but there have been a number of people wanting to try it. Getting that working is providing good general information that will be usefulin other contexts as well
[23:58:20] * drcoolbp notes you could be having this discussion in dev....
[23:58:23] <drcoolbp> gotta run guys
[23:58:25] <drcoolbp> later
[23:58:27] -!- drcoolbp has quit []
[23:58:33] <audioguy> So FatPhil are you pretty familiar with the Apache modeul, and how it workd with modperl?
[23:58:49] <audioguy> works
[23:58:57] <xlefay> Perhaps it would be better to make an overview what Slash can offer versus other methods?
[23:59:24] <FatPhil> not yet. I've done some mod_perl things in the past.
