emchohey folks. I am getting some strange behaviour when I click on an org in the list on socghop. is this a good place to describe it?00:16
emchobasically, it sometimes forwards to the org home page and sometimes to its profile, and I can't quite figure out why (org name is SIP Communicator)00:17

feraserhello everyone14:09
feraserI am a third year computer science graduate and a gsoc enthusiast...14:09
feraserI would like to discuss some queries regarding the summer of code, is there someone who can please help me out?14:10
*** MatthewWilkes has quit IRC14:10
MerioHi feraser :)14:12
feraserMerio: hello :)14:12
MerioPlease ask :)14:12
*** MatthewWilkes has joined #melange14:12
feraserMerio: I was going through the idea proposals on melange's gsoc profile page, when I came across some very fascinating prospects...14:13
feraserso i wanted to know if it is completely essential to have a background of Ajax, for me to participate in one of the projects?14:14
feraseri am fluent with python, django framework and the frontend technologies like javascript, css etc.14:14
feraseri just haven't had a lot of exposure to ajax :(14:15
Merioferaser: it depends on the project, if you look through the project ideas page, at the end of each idea there is a list of needed skills14:15
feraseryes, and i would like to be considered for the Testing, Code Guru, Code Quality Assurance section14:15
MerioHowever even if you don't have a strong background on something just let us know and depending on the project that should not be a problem if you have good ideas, a good project proposal, have background in almost all the others skills needed and willing to learn :)14:16
Merioferaser: well then Ajax is not needed for that particular project if you look into the "skills" section14:16
feraseri am very much willing to learn any other technologies mentioned on the page...14:16
feraserMerio: I have been working on a pet django project of my own, which is essentially a location based classifieds search service...14:17
*** kblin has left #melange14:17
feraseri would therefore like to know more about the requirements for the position of a tester and code quality assurance...14:20
Merioferaser: well, obviously you need to know Python, willing to learn our codebase and have some strong background in testing, as the unit tests you should write should be also a sort of path for us to begin working in a TDD way14:22
Merioferaser: however I strongly suggest to send a mail to our dev list, so all the other developers can join and help you better than me alone (also because I normally focus on the Javascript/Ajax side rather than on the Python code)14:23
Meriomadrazr: something more to tell to feraser?14:23
feraserMerio: hmm...okay. could you give me a link to the dev list?14:23
madrazrMerio: just minute seeing last part of the conversation14:24
tpbTitle: melange-soc-dev | Google Groups (at
feraserthank you very much :). Is there anything else I should know before applying for an intern position?14:25
madrazrferaser: Merio has said most of the things, good skills in Python is needed. And good knowledge of writing unit tests is plus14:26
madrazrferaser: also you may have to look at some functional tests and other things. It will be great if you look at all the tests we have in <Melange>/tests directory14:26
madrazrat the moment we don't have many, so you click with this project, you will become a superstar amongst us :P14:27
Merioferaser: well, yes... that's not properly an "intern" position ^_^14:27
ferasermadrazr: okay :). so how do i present my skills to the other developers? or is there going to be some kind of an interview or something?14:28
feraserMerio: Oh :-)14:29
madrazrferaser: well there won't be any interview :)14:29
Merioferaser: you should submit your project proposal through http://socghop.appspot.com14:30
tpbTitle: Google Open Source Programs (at
madrazrferaser: you need read a bit more about GSoC from its FAQ page:
tpb<> (at
MerioBut you might want to discuss with us in the dev list before submitting it14:30
MerioAlso I suggest to read what madrazr had just linked14:30
MerioAnd to look around informations about what summer of code is and how to write a good project proposal and what to do before submitting it (talking about your project in the dev list, etc)14:31
madrazrMerio: also about how to go about during GSoC, reading our blog posts on melange-dev.blogspot.com14:32
* madrazr ducks trying to publicize the Melange dev blog :D14:32
feraserThank you very much for all the time :). I have already joined the dev list and will checkout the code now....14:32
Merioferaser: some links you might want to check out14:32
tpb<> (at
* feraser cant thank enough14:33
tpbTitle: Google's Summer of Code 2005: Experience of One Mentor (at
tpb<> (at
MerioThese are some suggestions on how to write project proposals written by other communities and some years ago14:33
MerioObviously this is not exactly what we expect, but some suggestions around the Net to show you the feeling of what you're expected to write in the project proposal14:34
Merioferaser: you welcome :)14:34
Meriomadrazr: you're right :) feraser, in you can see what it's expected from you if you get accepted by Melange community, e.g. writing every week about the status of your project14:35
tpbTitle: Melange Development Blog (at
feraseralright, then I'll keep hanging out at the channel for a long time, and I hope to see you guys around :)14:35

LetterRipwith the additional tag of python17:50
LetterRipthen tried to add C unsuccessfully17:50

LetterRipwith any change to any field17:51
LetterRip is our page and here is the report
tpb<> (at
madrazrLetterRip: Ouch17:56
madrazrLetterRip: this defect has nothing to do with appengine17:57
LetterRipthat is the page it took me too on saving17:57
LetterRipand told me to report it there17:57
madrazrappengine project is distinctly different from Melange project which is just another app which runs on the appengine cloud17:57
LetterRipmeadrazr - i thought that might be the case17:57
LetterRipbut given that i was given that page to report the bug in17:57
LetterRipi followed directions :)17:57
madrazrLetterRip: is that on socghop the link to file a bug report there existed?17:58
LetterRipno wait17:58
LetterRipwhen i tried to save17:58
LetterRipit gives me the error page17:58
LetterRipand the error page links to17:58
madrazrLetterRip: please file your bug here
tpbTitle: Project hosting on Google Code (at
madrazrthis is the bug tracker for Melange17:59
madrazrthe one where you submitted is for appengine who have nothing to do with the error you are getting17:59
madrazrLetterRip: Also can you please tell me where you got the link to submit an issue there so that I can fix it17:59
LetterRipmadrazr - it is the page i'm redirected to when i attemp to save changes18:00
LetterRipit keeps the same page name at the top18:00
LetterRipso no idea where it is18:00
madrazrLetterRip: not sure if I understand why it is so18:00
madrazrLetterRip: but as far as your problem is concerned it is good to file a bug at the place where I linked above18:01
tpbTitle: Project hosting on Google Code (at
LetterRipyeah will do18:01
*** dr__house has quit IRC18:01
madrazrLennie or Sverre have the permissions to look at the logs and fix the problem18:01
madrazrLetterRip: unfortunately I don't have access to those logs :(18:01
LetterRipwell as long as no one tries and calls the blender foundation we are good :) since the number i used was our old number18:02
*** dr__house has joined #melange18:03
madrazrLetterRip: I did not get you18:04
LetterRipI meant while it is inconvnient the bug - its negative impact for blender foundation won't be immediate unless someone trys to call us since the change i was attempting to make was the phone number field :)18:06
madrazrLetterRip: Oh Ok18:09
madrazrLetterRip: hope your bug will be fixed soon18:09

neo7Lennie, ok. cool. App Engine for me seems to be bitchy for me now, I am into the urlopen error and now its not even being answered in the channel as well as the mailing list.18:49
neo7I was looking at the django used in melange, what dbms is actually used in melange, I can see, mysql and oracle as well.18:52

tansell-laptopSRabbelier, was it you who did git-stats ?23:34
SRabbeliertansell-laptop: depends... who's asking?23:35
tansell-laptopme :)23:35
tansell-laptopbasically I want something which I can get me summary information about a git repository23:36
SRabbeliertansell-laptop: git-stats could do that for you :P23:37
SRabbeliertansell-laptop: provided that the summary information you want is not that fancy :D23:37
tansell-laptopSRabbelier, I want it in a format I can easy turn into a webpage23:37
tansell-laptopI want things like number of commits23:38
tansell-laptop(in say the last month)23:38
SRabbeliertansell-laptop: hmmmm, I don't think I wrote anything to deal with date ranges23:39
SRabbeliersorry :(23:39
tansell-laptopdo you know anything about you competitors?23:40
SRabbeliertansell-laptop: heh, you might be off faster just using git-python directly23:41
*** neo7 has quit IRC23:41
SRabbeliertansell-laptop: also, the other git stats might be relevant to your interests, since I think it generates html23:42
tansell-laptopSRabbelier, the problem is it generates butt ugly HTML which is hard to parse or theme23:42
SRabbeliertansell-laptop: mightn't it be easier to modify the way it outputs the html?23:43
tansell-laptopthen I have to have a custom fork :/23:44
