mithronew ideas we need to add01:30
CarlFKdid you have time to sleep?01:30
mithroMJPEG core optimisation, get it up to [email protected] --> [email protected] be ideal01:30
mithroCarlFK: not really :/01:30
mithroI have to finish up some work they pay me for01:31
mithrothen I'll link back to finishing the GSoC application01:31
mithrothen I'll work on our ideas page01:31
CarlFKtry not to make yourself sick.01:31
mithroand then probably sleep the weekend away01:32
mithroCarlFK: do you have any veyepar projects you'd like to suggest?01:32
mithrolukejohn_ / techman_83: do you have any ideas you'd like to suggest?01:33
*** mproctor has quit IRC01:34
CarlFKmithro: brain storming here...01:34
mithroCarlFK: Sheila is skay right?01:34
CarlFKone of my paint points is getting events to export data in A) at all  and B) complete01:35
CarlFKmithro: yes01:35
CarlFKcurrent workflow: bug conference organizers to provide the URL to some json/xml/whataver, import it, look at it, find problems and then bug them again until all the problems are worked out01:36
CarlFKit would be nice to point them to a public facing web page with "enter url here, submit"01:36
techman_83the only thing that's on my mind is what comes next, DV is a dead end.01:37
mithroCarlFK: yeah, that would be useful for the website too01:37
CarlFKand they get either "error in line 123" or a simple rendering of their schedule01:37
techman_83which is covered by HDMI2USB + GSTswitch01:37
mithrotechman_83: sure01:38
mithrolukejohn_: did you have time to be a mentor and if so, what would you be suitable for mentoring for?01:38
CarlFKschedule visualzation is kinda nasty.  here is my current thing that is good enough for me:
tpbTitle: veyepar - Show: template_error Fosdem_2014 (at
mithrohyades: Can you give us feedback on how we could make GSoC better for you? I know it was a long time ago but anything you can think of regarding your initial impression would be good. Feedback on the general process would be awesome too....01:39
mithroCarlFK / parx: Can you poke Sheila and tell her I'm happy to talk to her about being a mentor and what is required01:41
mithroeveryone: The big area we are lacking at the moment is the ideas list, everyone should be trying to help there!01:42

tvCommitBot[getting-started] iiie pushed 1 new commit to master:
tvCommitBotgetting-started/master ac6d845 iiie: Update default.html...01:43
*** tvCommitBot has left #timvideos01:43
parxmithro As iiie pointed out, we don't actually have to assign specific mentors to each project at the stage.01:44
parx*this stage01:44
mithroparx: we should have "suggested possible mentors / points of contact" for each idea01:45
mithroIE hyades would be a create "point of contact" for gst-switch related projects :)01:45
CarlFKmithro: i currently do my installs like so: pxe install ubunut with a preseed file to answer the installer questions and run a script to create things like ~/.dvswitchrc and turn off the screen saver, don't suspend on lid close and a handful of other things that are handy for recoding01:45
parxGSoC lists KDE as the gold standard for application. They frequently list teams rather than individuals.01:45
mithroiiie and myself both work for the streaming system I think01:46
mithroparx: do you know if the github teams are public visible?01:46
parxno, I'll check01:46
parxKDE did not link to team lists01:46
mithroappears not -- otherwise they would have been good things to link too01:46
CarlFKbut then there I have to tweak each box to set it of for what room it will be in, what the networking details are and a few other things01:47
mithroparx: it's about giving the person who is looking at the idea someone to talk to further, specially if they are too shy to do it publically01:47
techman_83CarlFK: we utilised imaging + a small post install config script for LCA2014, all the configuration of DVswitch was handled in the web frontend01:48
techman_83though a scripted install is probably better long term01:49
techman_83However the post install config script could be useful01:50
CarlFKI know this can all be done better with feeding the mac addresses into veyepar and having it drive the pxe/dhcp/hostname and maybe fai (fully automated installer) that debian confrence uses01:50
iiie0I'd still lean on local networking an auto discovery :D01:50
parxmithro Teams are not viewable when logged out of github.  Some members are publicly visible, some are set to private and are not visible (the ones you added today).01:51
CarlFKmithro: I suspect there is a fair amount of work to do, like figure out how to do dhcp on 1 vm so that 2 or 3 other VMs can all talk to it and not take down the local physical lan01:53
mithroCarlFK: I think this is a reasonably solved problem, but you are right it just needs someone to do the work01:53
CarlFKnot that this needs to be done in VMs for production, but it seems like the sensible way to do a project.01:53
CarlFKyeah - it is mostly grunt work01:54
CarlFKmithro: the same 'install framework' could be used to setup streaming too01:57
iiie0How about: A speaker tracking camera!02:02
CarlFKthat would attract minds02:03
iiie0three servos, pan, zoom, tilt02:03
CarlFKsounds like more fun that re-running an install script over and over02:03
iiie0intelligent auto audio gain control02:03
techman_83iiie0: oh now there is an idea02:04
mithroI'll be back in 2 hours02:04
CarlFKoh geez02:04
CarlFKmithro: call in sleepy or something02:04
mithroCarlFK: i'm at work02:04
CarlFKeither way, sleep .. oh02:04
iiie0we know02:04
CarlFKget to work :D02:04
mithroI got 5-6 hours sleep02:04
CarlFKthank god.  I thought you stayed up all night02:05

*** dhanush has quit IRC02:55
*** mproctor has joined #timvideos03:01
CarlFKparx: sounds like an idea! :D03:04
parxI've just been including a Mentors section and Project Description (which is meant to include expected outcome type info)03:09
parxwhat else would a template have?03:09
parxCarlFK I added a "Projects - Veyepar" tag03:09
mithroparx: ideas won't appear on the ideas page unless they have a valid [<project> #<issue number>] in the title03:24
mithrothat should link to a bug in the actually project03:24
mithroI can fix that shortly03:25
parxah thanks03:30
iiie0What about ideas that aren't part of a project?03:31
iiie0Or more to the point what about ideas that aren't issues in one of the other repos?03:32
iiie0mithro, what about ideas that don't quite fall into a project and certainly aren't in the project's issue tracker?03:35
parxlike the new issues we are adding03:36
iiie0From the google doc, or from the channel03:37
iiie0they aren't all going to fit in the existing projects03:37

parxjust none on the Ideas page05:07
mithrosee my above comment about ideas not appearing05:07

mithroparx: if you are happy with a section, please mark it05:19
parxof the questionnaire?05:20
mithroparx: can you take a look at the "What is your plan for dealing with disappearing mentors?" section and see if your happy with that05:20
parxok, disappearing mentors looks fine05:22
*** dhanush has joined #timvideos05:24

mithroparx: the "What steps will you take to encourage students to interact with your project's community before and during the program?*" section is getting a bit too long06:05
parxyes to mentors section06:07

mithroparx: how's it looking?07:38
mithroparx: think we are done?07:40
parxSome of those last edits were great!07:42
parxI think it's good.  A spell check couldn't hurt.07:43
mithrooh the tags?07:44
parxbefore I forget... there's another angle on what we gain by participating07:46
mithro"No spelling suggestions"07:47
parxother GSoC mentoring orgs are VERY interested in using TimVideos projects, and also contributing07:47
parxfound that out at the Mentor Summit07:48
mithroparx: ahh cool07:49
parxre: spelling... good job us!07:50

hyadesmithro: regarding the initial period, I think I had a bit of trouble with information at different places. But I think thats been sorted out and the ideas page looks good :) Overall, I remember travis was a very useful thing to have and I started using it a bit late. Starting with it earlier will be better i guess.20:04
parxhi hyades!21:07
parxthanks for the feedback21:07
