scorcheso i clicked on "My Profile" and i got "This web site needs a different Google Maps API key. A new key can be generated at"01:30
scorcheis this expected currently?01:30
SRabbelierscorche: yeah, Mario found a fix01:31
SRabbelierscorche: or rather, figured out what was going wrong :P01:31
scorcheok  =)01:31
scorcheso why did they say that the timeline should go counter clockwise?  - that just seems counter-intuitive...01:32
SRabbelierscorche: eh, apparently it's a calendar01:32
SRabbelierscorche: and those are always that way, or something :P01:32
scorche....they are?01:33
scorchei admit, i have never had my calendar in circle-fashion, but it still seems counter-intuitive01:33
SRabbelierscorche: the guys who designed the new look01:33
scorchedoes the "participating organizations" logos rotate, or are only the biggest/most famous orgs as determined by google supposed to be there?01:35
SRabbelierscorche: deploying fix for the calendar widget01:35
SRabbelierscorche: the latter, but we want the former01:35
scorcheso that is on a to-do list?01:36
SRabbelierscorche: why don't you create a so we dont' forget?01:36

*** mmadia has joined #melange01:43

tpb<> (at
SRabbelierscorche: thanks01:47
scorcheI assume that stuff like managing mentors, etc is still to be implemented?01:47
SRabbelierscorche: yes, hopefully tomorrow we'll at least have Requests/Invites on the dashboard01:51
scorcheSRabbelier: there was no previous recommendation for formatting the IRC field on the org profile - due to this, the IRC contact link/button would be quite malformed - if i clicked it, it would lead me nowhere with "irc://" instead of the proper formatting of irc://
SRabbelierscorche: yeah, we weren't sure what do go with01:52
SRabbelierscorche: I'm writing an email to the mentors list01:52
scorcheit would probably be best to tell admins to make it compatible with proper link formatting and then change the field for the profile to attempt to enforce proper formatting01:53
mmadiasimilar for the Public mailing lists01:53
mmadiaeg, mailto:
tpbTitle: FreeLists / Haiku mailing list (at
SRabbeliermmadia: mhhh, maybe we just shouldn't make that a mailto: link01:53
scorchewe (rockbox) dont even have a mailing list button even though i specified one on the profile01:53
SRabbelierscorche: can you double check your org profile?01:54
Triskeliosmost mailing lists require subscription so posting wouldn't be possible immediately01:54
SRabbelierTriskelios: good point01:54
scorcheTriskelios: i was just about to type that  =)01:54
SRabbelierTriskelios: so probably should stay a url?01:54
SRabbelierone sec01:54
scorcheSRabbelier: which field does that pull from?  email, public mailing list, or development mailing list?01:55
Triskelioswow, the new melange site looks pretty slick01:55
SRabbelierTriskelios: thank you very much01:55
SRabbelierscorche: public mailing list01:55
scorcheSRabbelier: I specified something in each field in the org profile, but there is no mail link01:55
scorchefor that, i put this:  "rockbox-dev at is our main development mailing list - subscription info here:"01:56
madrazrSRabbelier: I think we need to check whether the public mailing list is a URL or email type and then add mailto:01:56
SRabbeliermadrazr: nah, I'm just turning it into a link01:56
madrazrthere are organizations which have entered in the email ID format, I just checked01:56
SRabbeliermadrazr: I thought you were going to bed anyway?01:56
madrazrSRabbelier: I was about to, just saw this message01:56
madrazrI am off01:56
scorchei would be happy with it being a regular link where i would put somehting like
tpb<> (at
SRabbeliermadrazr: haha, ok01:56
madrazrSRabbelier: see you01:57
*** madrazr has quit IRC01:57
SRabbelierscorche: ugh, this means email addresses look weird though01:57
SRabbelierperhaps madrazr does have a point :)01:57
SRabbelierscorche: does it show a linky now?01:57
TriskeliosSRabbelier: would be better if full functionality was restored though.. this is quite late to be making changes :P01:58
tpb<> (at
SRabbelierTriskelios: what full functionality do you mean?01:58
SRabbelierTriskelios: pfff, it wouldn't be Melange if we didn't JIT everything01:58
scorcheat least you hope it would be JIT ;)01:58
TriskeliosSRabbelier: mentor management, for one01:58
SRabbelierTriskelios: fear not! :P01:59
SRabbelierscorche: I see an envelope thingy!01:59
scorcheSRabbelier: oh - i didnt realise that those were 2 different icons01:59
scorchei thought that the envelope was some sort of bullet point for each contact method which would be on different rows02:00
SRabbelierscorche: ah02:00
*** bkgood has joined #melange02:01
tpb<> (at
scorchei feel stupid, however maybe this says something about another thing to be improved to make it more intuitive  =)02:01
scorcheyeah - we dont have an official blog besides individual developers'02:01
SRabbelierscorche: perhaps put the envelope thingy at the end? :P02:01
mmadiawould it be worthwhile for "Public irc channel (and network)" to support   ''  or similar web based clients?02:01
tpbTitle: freenode Web IRC (qwebirc) (at
scorcheit does make more sense after seeing that page though02:01
SRabbelierscorche: so that it's obviously not a bullet point02:01
SRabbeliermmadia: atm it's a irc:// link02:02
scorcheSRabbelier: i would just put the information on different rows and have the "button" followed by "mailing list", "irc", "blog", etc in text02:02
Triskelioshm, the org profiles now only list the "public IRC channel"?02:02
Triskelioswhat if the developer one is more relevant to GSoC?02:03
Triskeliospublic mailing list I mean02:03
*** Arc has joined #melange02:03
*** limgad has quit IRC02:04
Archey guys02:04
Arcis there an ETA when we org admins will be able to manage mentors again?02:04
SRabbelierTriskelios: not sure I understand what you're saying02:04
scorcheSRabbelier: it isnt like there isnt a ton of Y-axis to use up in that column02:04
SRabbelierTriskelios: oh, you want the other emails on there as well02:04
SRabbelierArc: the new site is live02:04
SRabbelierArc: mentors can apply02:04
SRabbelierArc: and technically you can accept them too, but you need to know the url :P02:04
Triskeliosright, or an option to choose the only one listed02:05
ArcSRabbelier: ok, then how can i access the mentor list?02:05
SRabbelierArc: we'll add that tomorrow02:05
SRabbelierArc: going to bed now 0.O02:05
SRabbelierit's 4am02:05
SRabbelier(damn you DST)02:05
scorcheSRabbelier: should I just open up tasks for this then?  ;)02:05
TriskeliosSRabbelier: also where is the org contact email used?02:05
SRabbelierscorche: please do :)02:05
Arci dont blame you, i just want to schedule my weekend out since this is a big chore02:05
SRabbelierTriskelios: probably not02:05
Arcthanks, the new site looks much better02:05
SRabbelierArc: why don't you have the mentors apply?02:06
SRabbelierArc: also, atm, you can't invite them unless they are registered on Melange02:06
ArcSRabbelier: i have a list of link_id's to invite02:06
SRabbelierArc: which they can do by applying to you02:06
scorcheSRabbelier: i just dont want to look silly by opening a task for something that isnt supposed to be working yet anyway  ;)02:06
SRabbelierArc: they need to have full profiles though, I think02:06
SRabbelierscorche: it's fine to add an issue as a reminder that it should be working at some point02:06
Arcyea ive collected that data.  the problem is if they apply through melange and I get their name on a list, I may not know who they are or what group they're with02:06
SRabbelierscorche: we love closing issues as Fixed :)02:06
SRabbelierArc: you'll be able to see their link_ids, which you already have, yes?02:07
SRabbelierArc: their email addresses too02:07
Arcthere's no email address listed or other contact info on the site with their request to follow up, so i go in one direction only02:07
ArcSRabbelier: plus, i have a list, and its easier to go down the list than wait for each one to request and check them off that list02:07
Arci'd kill for a big text entry field to enter them each on a line by themselves or separated by spaces to do them all in a batch02:08
*** limgad has joined #melange02:08
SRabbelierArc: what do you mean with your first "here's no email address listed or other contact info on the site with their request to follow up,"02:08
SRabbelierArc: that can be arranged02:09
Arcunless the interface has changed, it used to just show the full name they enter and link_id, last year I had to google their names to figure out if they were legit02:09
ArcPSF has over 80 mentors, I don't know who they all are so I have to trust the project leads to give me a list of their mentors02:09
ArcSRabbelier: that would be fantastic :-)02:10
scorcheSRabbelier: i would say something about the massive amount of wasted space on a 1600x1200 screen, but i think i might not have the ear of the common user there...02:10
Arcmaybe some way to batch enter student grades too, on one big page?02:10
SRabbelierscorche: I hear you, and it's a property of usign 960 css, (which means the page is viewable on a 1024x768 screen)02:10
TriskeliosSRabbelier: I seem to be unable to edit my user profile, btw. the result if I submit the form is as if most of the fields were blank (so the submission is rejected)02:10
mmadia404:  faqs:
SRabbelierArc: sure, please create a for that02:11
mmadia404: timeline:
tpbTitle: Google Project Hosting (at
SRabbeliermmadia: fixing02:11
SRabbelierTriskelios: were you an org admin/mentor for this year?02:11
TriskeliosSRabbelier: yes, both02:11
SRabbelierTriskelios: but there's no "My profile" link when you sign in?02:12
Arcevery year I end up with a list of students we want in order and need to go through a several hour process of "select 1000 applications to view", "control-f student name", "click on profile, reload until it finally loads", "select grade, submit", "select 1000 views", "verify student grade actually got entered"02:12
TriskeliosSRabbelier: no, it's there, and the fields are populated as before in the form02:12
TriskeliosSRabbelier: if I submit it I get "Sorry, we could not save your data. Please fix the errors mentioned below." and all of the fields are blank except "Public name" now02:13
SRabbelierTriskelios: can you send a screenshot of the page after you submitted?02:13
Triskelioslink_id is trisk, fwiw02:13
SRabbelierTriskelios: oooh, maybe I broke something earlier02:13
SRabbeliermmadia: thanks, fixed02:14
SRabbelierTriskelios: yeah, I broke it02:14
scorcheSRabbelier: sorry - i feel like i am whining without posting patches to these tasks to make the page behave as I would wish it, but I just don't have that kind of free time lately  =/02:14
SRabbelierscorche: thank you, and it's ok02:14
scorcheSRabbelier: shall i also open a task about making each tag clickable which would lead to sorting by that one tag?02:15
SRabbeliermmadia: the irc links are now regular a hrefs02:16
SRabbelierscorche: you can filter on tags at the top02:16
TriskeliosSRabbelier: do you need any more info from me?02:16
SRabbelierTriskelios: looking into it, please hold :)02:16
* Triskelios has a train in catch in 5 minutes :\02:16
scorcheSRabbelier: yes - but i would think that clicking on one would be much more intuitive  (i seem to keep using this word...)02:16
SRabbelierTriskelios: found it02:17
SRabbelierscorche: I think people expect to go to the org's page when they click on a row02:17
scorcheSRabbelier: agreed, but I would expect that the tags would have an easier way to sort by clicking on each tag - this is how it worked back in previous years when we used...i think delicious?02:19
SRabbelierTriskelios: fix deploying!02:19
SRabbelierscorche: hmm, that was on a separate website though :P02:19
scorcheclicking on org name/name cell would take you there, however the tags would sort by that tag02:19
SRabbelierscorche: hmmm02:19
SRabbelierscorche: where with sort you mean filter, yes?02:20
scorcheSRabbelier: yes, but i dont see the harm on looking at what they did to potentially improve how melange works  ;)02:20
scorcheSRabbelier: yes - filter02:20
SRabbelierscorche: valid point02:20
TriskeliosSRabbelier: fixed, thanks for the quick turnaround!02:20
scorcheif it would be too hard to make the listview do it, there could be links made on the tags section of each individual org, though i do think that would be more work to use to filter by02:21
SRabbelierTriskelios: we try02:21
*** ankush has quit IRC02:24
scorcheSRabbelier: also, i assume previous years have been planned on still appearing, but havent been pushed to the new site yet? - or are those intended to be gone forever?02:24
SRabbelierscorche: the former02:25
scorche(you can go to bed now and come back to answer these questions tomorrow too)  ;)02:25
SRabbelierscorche: they data is already there02:25
SRabbelierscorche: the urls accessible even02:25
SRabbelierscorche: just not advertised, since the experience is a bit lacking atm02:25
SRabbelierscorche: (e.g., profile page is inaccesible atm, should be readonly)02:25
* scorche nods02:25
SRabbelierscorche: and the dashboard isn't quite finished yet either, which you won't notice yet, since there aren't any student projects, but in previous years it'd show :P02:26
* scorche nods some more02:26
*** gevaerts has joined #melange02:26
mmadiafwiw, all of socinfo's urls work.02:28
mmadia*those listed in Factoids02:28
SRabbeliermmadia: you're a hero for checking02:29
SRabbeliermmadia: many thanks02:29
scorcheSRabbelier: also, I had my homepage previously display the rockbox logo across the top of it, as i thought it was more aesthetically pleasing than the block of text - will there be the ability to have more control over the home page as we had with the old application (what with also being able to add links to completed projects on, etc), or is it planned to auto-generate based upon information from the org profile and logos02:30
scorchegets implemented?02:30
SRabbelierscorche: the description is HTML02:30
SRabbelierscorche: you can make that link to wherever you want02:30
SRabbelierscorche: same way the old "homepage document" worked02:30
SRabbelierscorche: or is that not what you meant?02:31
scorcheSRabbelier: great - some sort of indication of this for the description field might be handy - though i imagine there needs to be a new webapp handbook/guide written for this site that would address such things as well  ;)02:31
scorchei can use that to accomplish the same thing02:32
SRabbelierscorche: see also the email to the mentor list02:32
SRabbelierscorche: you'll have a good ole' TinyMCE editor there02:32
scorchei just didnt knwo it was HTML before rather than just a plain text field02:32
SRabbelierscorche: except we're having a big of a problem with getting TinyMCE to work :P02:32
SRabbelierscorche: *nod*02:32
scorcheSRabbelier: good thing i dont have to rely on TinyMCE to write HTML  ;)02:33
SRabbelierscorche: indeed, but that'd be a good indication that it's html, yeah? :)02:33
scorchei now see the <p> in the description, so i guess that could have been a clue  ;)02:34
scorcheSRabbelier: is there a link that i could use to get to the rockbox document "homepage" so i can easily copy/paste what i did before the switch was made?02:35
mdcWas just checking out the new UI.  I can't seem to find the admin interface.  Is that part offline right now?02:36
scorchemdc: certain parts are accessible - mainly just editing the org profile02:36
mdcscorche: Thanks.  I'll check back tomorrow.  Just wanted to make sure.02:37
SRabbeliermdc: anything else you were looking for in particular?02:39

SRabbelierscorche: why not02:47
scorchethanks again for all of your hard work  =)02:48
SRabbelierscorche: thank you ^^02:49
ArcSRabbelier: oh hey how do additional mentoring orgs get their logo on the frontpage?02:51
Arcit'd be great to get PSF on there, we're one of the larger orgs02:52

Arcyou know in the space available there every submitted icon could be shown right now02:57
*** skbohra_ has joined #melange02:58
Arcthat would be a more powerful statement than a text list02:58
skbohra_Team, the new UI is really good02:59
skbohra_text-align:justify; padding-right:10px; would make description on home page more readable03:00
skbohra_also, I think Contacts are repeated twice, in the side bar and in footer. We can get rid of one of them, probably the one in the side bar03:01

*** npch has quit IRC11:58
madrazrslingshot316: sure, both are possible11:59
madrazrslingshot316: depending on how and what you propose to do11:59
*** m4k3r has quit IRC11:59
slingshot316madrazr: i'm planning to port all the views and write tests for them and the dashboard functionality too on which i already did some work12:00
madrazrslingshot316: first thing12:01
madrazrslingshot316: you will not need to port "all" the views12:01
madrazrslingshot316: it is very likely that only a very small subset of views needs to be ported12:01
madrazrslingshot316: many of the new views need to be written12:01
madrazrand of course tests written for them (writing tests for new views is implicit and a requirement. It is not an option)12:02
slingshot316madrazr: yea, sverre was telling the same the other day and i sorry i kind of mixed both12:02
madrazrslingshot316: dashboard == one of the several new views that needs to be written12:02
slingshot316madrazr: got it, so this wont make it to a complete GSoC project?12:03
madrazrslingshot316: again, I can't really say until I see the detailed proposal12:07
madrazrslingshot316: 1. Write new views 2. Port old views 3. Write tests 4. Write dashboard isn't sufficient to say whether it makes a complete GSoC project12:07
slingshot316madrazr: okay, can i mail it to you before i submit it?12:08
madrazrslingshot316: I need to see specifically what are being proposed to make a complete GSoC project12:08
madrazrslingshot316: but keep one thing in mind12:08
madrazrslingshot316: GSoC coding period is spread over just 13 weeks12:08
madrazrand 3 to 4 weeks of additional community bonding period12:08
slingshot316madrazr: yes i will speicfy details of everything including the time i'm assuming it would take for each task12:09
madrazrslingshot316: 13 weeks is not that long time, and you realize that only after you start your work12:09
madrazrslingshot316: so being realistic while proposing12:09
madrazrslingshot316: don't over target or under target12:09
madrazrin either cases, it is very likely that proposal gets lower ranking12:09
madrazrslingshot316: I would not like to get the proposal to my personal mail and comment on it in private12:10
slingshot316madrazr: sure will do, thank you for the suggestions.. will keep all these in mind12:10
madrazrslingshot316: it won't be fair for other students12:10
madrazrslingshot316: but if you send it to our dev list, one of us will reply, when time permits12:10
*** Talad has left #melange12:11
slingshot316madrazr: sure will send it to the list and sorry i just thought you'd review.. no other intentions :)12:11
madrazrslingshot316: there is no need to be sorry12:11
madrazrslingshot316: it is completely fair enough to ask that12:11
madrazrslingshot316: in fact many people in the GSoC community recommend to ask that to potential mentors12:11
madrazrslingshot316: in fact I had asked my potential mentors too12:12
slingshot316madrazr: oh really? :)12:12
madrazrslingshot316: there is nothing wrong in it and you won't lose anything12:12
madrazrslingshot316: if the mentors are willing to, they will say yes or will say No12:12
slingshot316madrazr:  okay :)12:12
madrazrslingshot316: those are the only 2 possibilities anyway and you won't lose anything :D12:12
madrazrslingshot316: it is just my personal opinion that for an Open source project, almost all the things should happen in open12:13
slingshot316madrazr: yep :) i agree12:13
slingshot316madrazr: also the public task view checks if the task is open/reopen and locks the student with that task? and has comments funcionality right? should it contain anything else?12:17
madrazrslingshot316: the entire task work flow?12:20
madrazrslingshot316: if you look at our wiki, there is this document called as GCIDesign12:20
madrazror GCITaskImplementationAndDesign or something like that12:20
slingshot316madrazr: no no! just the public view and yea i went through wiki already :)12:20
madrazrslingshot316: jointly written by Lennard and myself12:20
madrazrslingshot316: you should take a look at it12:20
slingshot316madrazr: yes i already did :)12:21
madrazrslingshot316: the entire task workflow is in the public view12:21
madrazrslingshot316: in GCI, that public view is like one tailed pony :P12:21
slingshot316madrazr: i know, so the new view should contain the entire task workflow?12:22
madrazrslingshot316: I can easily say that at least 50% of the GCI work happens there and 85-90% of the GCI users time is spent on that page :D12:22
slingshot316madrazr: oh okay okay,12:22
slingshot316madrazr:  so this view that i'm writing now will have the entire task workflow ?12:23
madrazrslingshot316: yeah12:23
madrazrslingshot316: wait12:23
madrazrslingshot316: if you can propose a better design, I am more than happy to give pointers to it12:23
slingshot316madrazr: okay12:24
madrazrslingshot316: or review I mean12:24
slingshot316madrazr: sure12:24

ArcSRabbelier: morning12:36
SRabbelierArc: greetings12:37
Arcso im confused, is the icon list being randomised soon, or is it intended for later?12:37
SRabbelierArc: sooner rather than later?12:37
Arcto be honest it just irked me to see the arbitrary preference to promote these 5 above all others, if it were intended to highlight the 5 major orgs KDE and Python should certainly be up there12:39
SRabbelierArc: heh12:41
SRabbelierperhaps we should promote the smallest orgs instead12:41
SRabbeliersince everybody knows the big ones already ;)12:41
Arcsure except i'd imagine the reason to promote these is to show that there's wide support from the community for GSoC12:42
Arcplus, the larger ones are generally large because they umbrella many smaller orgs themselves12:43
Arcsure PSF gets 30-40 students each year, but we also have around a dozen projects under us of varying size12:44

Talad|ZzZI clicked on it, and accepted it23:20
Talad|ZzZit says accepted23:20
Talad|ZzZbut the person doesn't show up in the mentors list below23:20

SRabbelierTalad|ZzZ: that was yes to "is the admin of an organization also a mentor automatically?"23:26
