zvoaseHi everyone17:59
zvoaseI'm a developer who'd really like to get involved in Melange devel (I'm also an old GHOPer)18:00
madrazrzvoase: awesome!18:00
madrazrzvoase: welcome!18:00
madrazrWelcome to Melange!18:00
madrazrzvoase: how would you like to contribute?18:00
zvoaseI've got a suggestion for the text markup stuff (i.e. Wiki/TinyMCE)18:00
zvoaseand I'd like to do some coding18:01
zvoasePython's my primary coding language, and I develop with Django every day18:01
zvoasealthough I haven't done much GAE stuff, but I'm familiar with the platform18:01
zvoaseone thing I wanted to talk about was the text markup/HTML sanitization stuff18:02
zvoaseI'm not involved with the project itself, but I have used (and can heartily recommend) the Python Markdown library18:02
madrazrzvoase: that would be cool!18:03
zvoasethey've recently released version 2.0; it's really clean code (and pure Python), plus I've written a couple of extensions for it so far and it's a dream to work with from both an end-user perspective and from the API itself18:04
madrazrzvoase: can you write your thoughts to Melange-dev list if possible? most of the core devels are not around ATM18:04
zvoaseOK, definitely will18:04
madrazrzvoase: great to know!18:05
madrazrzvoase: this will be definitely useful to us18:05
zvoaseno problem18:05
madrazrzvoase: thanks a lot for your involvement, hope to see your mail :)18:05
zvoaseBecause to be honest, using TinyMCE to generate HTML from the client side and then just accepting that as input is *really* insecure (although you guys probably know that already)18:05
zvoaseI'll send it along soon :)18:06
madrazrzvoase: cool!18:06
zvoaseThere's also another thing which I've noticed18:07
zvoasewhich of course I'd like to help out on if possible18:07
zvoaseobviously this will all go in the e-mail to the list18:08
madrazrzvoase: cool! whats that?18:08
*** Lennie has joined #melange18:08
*** ChanServ sets mode: +o Lennie18:08
zvoasebasically, in the top-level scripts/ directory there's a mixture of bash/python scripts to do some things that might be needed in the build/deployment process18:08
Lenniejavascript is always a nice solution :D18:09
madrazrLennie: WB to the channel :P18:09
Lenniehi madrazr18:09

madrazrLennie: Hi ;-)18:09
zvoaseLennie: hi :)18:10
LennieI'll try to get Pawel in here18:10
LennieI think the subjects that zvoase is talking about are more up Pawel's alley18:10
madrazrLennie: ah Ok that would be very cool too :)18:10
madrazrLennie: I have also asked zvoase to send a mail about it to the dev list and he has agreed :)18:10

zvoaseJust melange-soc19:31
zvoaseI'll do the -dev one now19:31
zvoaseI didn't know there was a separate -dev one.19:31
zvoaseah, well.19:31
solydzajshappens :D19:32
zvoaseI wouldn't have been able to post there anyhoo.19:32
*** Merio has quit IRC19:34
solydzajswhy ?;-)19:35
solydzajsyou are :-)19:35
solydzajswe changed the rules ;-)19:35
solydzajsanybody can post there19:35
zvoaseoh, right, it still says you have to be a project member on the actual webpage19:35
Lenniefail ^^19:36
zvoasedo you want me to re-post it on the -dev list?19:36
zvoaseor just a link?19:36
Lennieno general is fine for this :D19:36
solydzajsit's fine19:36
Lennieit's out there already :D19:36
zvoaseyou probably don't want my introductions cluttering up your commit messages either :D lol19:36
solydzajszvoase: commit messages go to separate group19:37
solydzajszvoase: melange-soc-commits ;-)19:37
zvoasesolydzajs: talk about organization :)19:37
zvoaseso what are your initial impressions?19:41
solydzajsit would be great if you could work on TinyMCE replacement but we need to discuss what we want to replace it with19:48
Lenniemarkdown is one of those options19:48
Lenniebut so is some kind of Wiki format19:48
zvoaseexactly, that's why I said I wasn't going to jump in and start working on it before a decision had been reached19:48
zvoaseMarkdown's inline code highlighting is a *very* cool feature19:48
zvoaseespecially for this sort of thing19:48
solydzajsregarding Paver I would like to get a more detailed description what would you like to achieve with it other than possibility to run Melange on windows without Cygwin19:49
zvoaseit's mainly for cleaning up the scripts/ directory19:49
zvoasebut it's a purely technical thing19:49
zvoaseWhat I shall do is...19:49
zvoaseI'll port the script over to Paver19:50
zvoaseso you can see what it's like19:50
ajaksusolydzajs, Lennie, zvoase: consider the python-loved ReST too :)19:50
solydzajszvoase: ok sounds good :-)19:51
zvoaseajaksu: ReST is very cool, I did some work with docutils for GHOP actually19:51
zvoaseThe only issue with ReST is that it's a bit slower and it's quite 'heavy' if that makes any sense19:52
zvoaseit's more for making complete documents, for comments it might be overkill19:52
ajaksuzvoase: as in usability? agreed :)19:52
