harlanI just realized that I'd like to "flag" student projects.  For example, I may know that I want to do a review of different projects and it would be nice if my dashboard showed me if I had "flagged" any project for any reason (like "needs a review comment").  Does this make sense?02:20

SRabbelierdiones: mhhh, what have you tried so far?10:20

*** mdiggory_ has joined #melange13:08
mdiggory_I'm administrator on the DSpace GSoC project.  I've got a student application thats been classified as ineligible. There is no description why. Is there a way in the application see why an application is ineligible?13:09
mdiggory_I see from the #gsoc channel responses this may have been flagged by a mentor or the student may have withdrawn it13:10
SRabbelierquoting myself: mdiggory_: but another possiblity is that the student withdrew their application13:10
*** awregan_ is now known as diones13:10
SRabbeliermdiggory_: correct13:11
mdiggory_Is there a way I can remove it from the inelegible list and put it back up in the ones under review13:11
mdiggory_without having to hunt down which mentor classified it as such13:11
SRabbeliermadrazr: ask solydzajs13:12
SRabbeliermadrazr: or ask the student to submit a new proposal13:12
SRabbeliermadrazr: either works13:12
*** diones_ has joined #melange13:12
*** andrecastelo is now known as andre|away13:13
SRabbeliersolydzajs: see mdiggory_13:14
diones_SRabbelier: And by the way the response value is a dict13:15
solydzajsmdiggory_: what can I do for you ?13:15
mdiggory_I'm trying to determine why a students proposal was marked ineligible. I've emailed the student and am trying to reach all our mentors, but some are "sleeping" on the other side of the planet ATM.13:16
SRabbelierdiones_: what's the content of the dict?13:17
diones_SRabbelier: {'request': <tests.test_utils.MockRequest object at 0x03594B70>, 'context': None, 'template': None, 'error': LoginRequest()}13:18
mdiggory_solydzajs: if an application is already marked ineligible by the deadline today, is it possible to have it returned to being eligible afterward?  If so, that would make this less important an issue13:19
SRabbelierdiones_: seems obvious to me then :D13:19
SRabbelierdiones_: it's an error (hence the 'error' value)13:19
solydzajsmdiggory_: Yes I can make it happen13:19
SRabbelierdiones_: you can see what's wrong by looking at the 'message' value of error13:20
mdiggory_Ok, I'll wait for responses from my mentors/student to see why it was marked ineligible.13:21
SRabbeliermdiggory_: ok :)13:21
mdiggory_Can you tell who marked it ineligible? I.E. student or mentor13:21
SRabbeliermdiggory_: nope, we didn't think of that13:22

pombredaI am the org admin for eclipse. Some apps have been marked as ineligible in Eclipse. I marked two that were dupes, but dunno who marked the other ones...14:00
pombredasolydzajs: I would want to bring all those back as NOT ineligible apps, so I can review that carefully... I did not thought regular mentors could do that (mark as ineligible). that is creating problems here @ eclipse. I spanked the mentors , but there is no way to undo that on my side.14:01

bhockUnfortunately I am evidence of the contrary.17:00
ronnymllh, I know i can do this, but that is not the point. Actually I didn't report the issue inmediatly, because I think, as you usually do, report about thigs bugs in the mailing lists.17:01
bhockthe doc is the text of the proposal, I made it today post-deadline just in case someone wanted it17:01

SRabbeliergwolf: hello18:42
gwolf...I'm talking over a proposed change for GSoC 2010's project listing, and was pointed over here18:43
gwolf...I want to point out that, when looking at the projects, the (default? only?) view is sorted according to how proposals have been ranked18:44
gwolfAnd yes, it is a valuable sorting... if you want to decide right away where to put the cutoff line18:44
gwolfBut still - When entering to review, not only it is not very useful - it is IMHO harmful18:44 it biases me - I do expect to see better proposals ranked highest (and the opposite)18:44
gwolfSo... Maybe consider a different default sorting for next year? For extra points, it currently separates new proposals (I guess, since my last login)...18:45
gwolf...Possibly it should highlight those proposals where I have posted no comments?18:45
gwolf(of course, is this the right channel to come up with this rant/18:45

lhgwolf: there are lots of ideas on scoring in the issue tracker, as this is for 2010 i would log a feature request.18:53
SRabbeliergwolf: yup, I agree18:54
SRabbeliergwolf: the current list is sub-optimal18:54
gwolflh: Should I file this at some tracker? I was just pointed to this channel, but... I know that an IRC channel is a good way to lose ideas :)18:54
SRabbeliergwolf: where were you pointed at this channel?18:55
gwolfAt #debian-soc (@oftc)18:55
SRabbeliergwolf: #melange is a good place to discuss and refine your idea's, to store it more long-term creating a new issue is better :)18:55
SRabbelierlh: is cooler though :P18:55

SRabbelierlh: I know :P18:56
SRabbelierlh: easier to remember :D18:56
lhit is!18:56
gwolfok, filing it there - in any case, there will be more (and better qualified) people there to decide on the sorting18:59
SRabbeliergwolf: we're hoping we'll have a better list view for next year18:59
gwolfWe all hope for our code to become better! (:18:59
SRabbeliergwolf: please, no upside down smilies! :P19:00
SRabbeliergwolf: they make my head asplode!19:00
