orcunaSRabbelier: i think i found the issue that i want to prepare patch for00:18
SRabbelierorcuna: do share00:20
orcunaSRabbelier: it's #320 documents should offer templating features00:20
orcunadoes it contain only documents?00:20
SRabbelierorcuna: Melange documents00:20
SRabbelierorcuna: such as
tpb<$$> (at
SRabbelierorcuna: but in particular those used for other purposes :)00:21
orcunaSRabbelier: and is it enough just using template variables (but choosen ones)00:21
orcunado we need to provite any tags (so any filters)00:22
SRabbelierorcuna: you can probably reuse Django00:22
SRabbelierorcuna: just put the document through Django's template's facility00:23
orcunabut that processes all tags then. this isn't a problem isn't it?00:24
SRabbelierorcuna: django is very specific about what it'll accept00:25
SRabbelierorcuna: only stuff like {{ some_variable }}00:26
SRabbelierorcuna: that's not likely to occur in any document ;)00:26
SRabbelierorcuna: besides, this is a feature intended for program administrators00:26
orcunaSRabbelier: ok then :)00:27
orcunaSRabbelier: are documents created through web iface?00:27
SRabbelierorcuna: yeah, do you have a local instance running yet?00:28
orcunayes, but i couldn't figured out views for it yet00:28
orcunai will look for them00:28
SRabbelierorcuna: did you run seed_db?00:28
*** mithro has joined #melange00:29
*** ChanServ sets mode: +v mithro00:29
orcunayes, it creates some initial data but not any documents (i think)00:29
SRabbelierorcuna: there's one :)00:29
SRabbelierorcuna: http://localhost:8080/gsoc/document/show/site/site/home00:29
SRabbelierorcuna: replace show with edit00:29
orcunaSRabbelier: i missed it :)00:30
SRabbelierorcuna: np00:30
orcunaSRabbelier: yes, so entity's content attribute will go through Django's template system with some context on the fly, and result will be sent to the final "show" template00:33
SRabbelierorcuna: you got it perfectly00:33
SRabbelierorcuna: you know much Django?00:33
SRabbelierorcuna: (good first impression :D)00:33
orcunaSRabbelier: thank you :) yes, i developed an application on AppEngine with Django. i also worked for Pardus project this summer, contributed developing of Pardus's official community web application http://www.ozgurlukicin.com00:35
tpbTitle: Özgürlük için... (at
SRabbeliermost curious title00:36
SRabbelierorcuna: Turkish, says Google?00:36
orcunaSRabbelier: sorry, i couldn't get what you mean :)00:37
SRabbelierorcuna: the language of the site?00:38
orcunayes, i'm from Turkey, and Pardus is a Turkish distro :)00:38
SRabbelierorcuna: ah! makes sense :)00:39
SRabbelierorcuna: so is that site running on AppEngine, or...?00:39
orcunaSRabbelier: Pardus also contributed GSoC two times before00:39
orcunaSRabbelier: no, it's not00:40
SRabbelierorcuna: they did? as mentoring orgs?00:40
SRabbelierorcuna: what was the GAE project you worked on?00:40
orcunaSRabbelier: yes it was mentoring organization at 2008 and 200900:42
SRabbelierorcuna: did you participate in GSoC before?00:42
orcunaSRabbelier: it wasn't an open source project. it was for private use . it lives on http://famer2.appspot.com00:43

*** jweede has joined #melange00:46

orcunaSRabbelier:  i also contribute Pardus for CoMaK project this year (multiple desktop installitions)00:47
orcunaSRabbelier: we've been ported Pardus to LXDE, Enlightenment, FluxBox, XFCE and Gnome00:48
SRabbelierorcuna: sounds good; any particular reason you're interested in working on Melange this summer?00:48
SRabbelierorcuna: impressive :D00:48
orcunaSRabbelier: i really appreciate what Google does with GSoC, bring together newbie students and open source projects.  i was just wondering if Melange can be used for other purpuses. I visited GSoC 2011 page and see that Melange is being working to serve for more general purposes for other organizations and i thought this is a great idea, and i wanted to contribute Melange with my best effort00:52
SRabbelierorcuna: neat ;)00:52
SRabbelierorcuna: lookign forward to seeing your patch ^^00:53
SRabbelierorcuna: don't hesistate to ask questions if you get stuck on anything00:53

pacmanHi, I would like to do one of  the projects suggested my melange for GSoC13:12
SRabbelierpacman: go on13:13
pacmanthe one that suggests changing the whole GCI architechture makeover13:16
pacmanto be precise, porting GCI to the views architecture and giving the dashboeard functionality to users and also building a data seeder for GCI13:18
* SRabbelier nods13:19
SRabbelierpacman: you worked with AppEngine before?13:19

pacmanI've built an online linux event (/bin/bash) for the technical festival of my college, using the appengine13:27
SRabbelierhow did it work?13:28
*** m4k3r has joined #melange13:31
pacmanThe event basically was an online questionairre13:33
pacmanwherein the interface provides the students with a set of objective questions and would receive anwers from the users.13:35
*** nofrills has joined #melange13:43
pacmanand the questions could be chosen from different levels of difficulty13:46
pacmanand out of the 200 questions that were put into it, 20 questions were selected from it in a random fashion13:46

*** deb5890 has joined #melange13:58
SRabbelierpacman: what UI framework did you use?13:59
pacmanthe UI was built purely using html, css and jquery to build the dynamic elements.14:02
SRabbelierpacman: so you included html in the python directly?14:02
*** anth_x has left #melange14:04
|Kev|Unimportant, but if someone happens to be near the code anyway - there's currently no 'fetching' message if you refresh a view.14:05
|Kev|That is of no practical importance to me.14:05
|Kev|Just mentioning :)14:05
pacmanI've used the webpp module which includes django's templating system14:08
pacmanand so the htm code can be kept in a separate file14:09
SRabbelierpacman: ah, that's fine, so you know how things work14:10

SRabbelierpacman: what interests you about Melange?14:32
pacmanbasically it's about the kind of projects that melange offers14:37
SRabbelierpacman: such as? :)14:37
pacmanin the sense the projects have python, and django written all over it14:38
pacmanand python is my default coding language14:39
* SRabbelier nods14:39
pacmanand I feel that this can turn out to be a very good way to sharpen my knowledge about python, django and the appengine14:41
pacmanand I feel that this would definitely be a very good way to spend my vacation14:44
SRabbelierpacman: I would be inclined to agree  :)14:47

pacmanand also the fact that my contribution will be to the development of the GSoC site itself, that definitely is something14:55
SRabbelierpacman: ah :)14:58
pacmanthe two other projects, exporting to google docs and also testing looks doable to me(on condition that I'll get you as my mentor :)  )15:03

SRabbelierpacman: I expect that from all team members :)15:17
pacmanso then I find these three projects doable..15:18
pacmanwhat do you suggest?15:18
pacmanwhich one means more to melange?15:18
SRabbelierpacman: we'll definitely want to get a new-and-improved Code-In module :)15:21
pacmanboth those projects dont have you as a mentor on it..15:26
SRabbelierpacman: They have Madhu though, and we all co-mentor all projects :)15:26

gevaertsSRabbelier: collect independent gsoc statistics of course :)20:12
ArthurLiuto be complete, it's already possible to embed <img> in proposals and org descriptions, but this is on the front page20:13
SRabbelierArthurLiu: yup20:13
SRabbelierArthurLiu: and orgs that game the system lose their slots20:14
gevaertsArthurLiu: any funny games would mean no more gsoc for that org forever I would expect20:14
Triskeliosis the maximum size of the new images are 65x65 or 64x64? I notice there are is a 90x40 image in the current lineup..20:15
SRabbelierTriskelios: 65x65, why would it be 64x64?20:16
ArthurLiunicer binary representation20:17
SRabbelierTriskelios: notice alos that the current lineup has smaller ones too20:17
Triskeliostext below the field says "Please ensure that the image you provide is smaller than 65px65px.", which suggests the maximum is 64x6420:17
SRabbelierTriskelios: sure, for you it's 64x6420:20
Triskeliosare you interpreting "smaller than" differently?20:23
gevaerts65x64 is smaller than 64x64 :)20:24
gevaerts65x64 is smaller than 65x65 :)20:24
gevaertsAnd what about 32x128?20:24
* SRabbelier balefires you all20:25
ArthurLiuwhat norm are you using? what if I want to use a seminorm?20:25
*** mmadia has joined #melange20:25
SRabbelierArthurLiu: norm?20:27
gevaertsI'll use *really* small pixels, so I can do 128x12820:27
mmadiare 1135 & action required. is a 150 x 50 logo acceptable?20:29
tpb<> (at
Triskeliosgevaerts: my reading is "largest dimension", but you can certainly go with "bounded area"... area alone would lead to 1x4224 being valid20:29
ArthurLiu"If your logo doesn't fit in this box, then you cannot bring it on the plane!"20:31
gevaertsBut it's just a plain logo!20:31
* SRabbelier tries20:32
SRabbeliermmadia: it's scaled down to 65x2120:32
SRabbeliergevaerts: lol20:32
TriskeliosArthurLiu: exactly what I was picturing for a bounding box20:32
SRabbelieryou people are smart enough to figure this out20:32
iamaregeehey I am unable to run melange... :(20:33
*** mjohnst has quit IRC20:33
iamaregeeneed some help..!!20:33
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: hi any hopes of getting issue 818 reopened?20:34
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: no20:36
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: hence why I closed it20:36
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: Your last comment is wrong.20:36
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: It currently forces me my name on comments to applications to ASCII20:36
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: There is no way to write my name in ASCII that would be pronounced correctly20:37
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: that's an different problem20:37
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: e.g. "Comment form displays first name + last name instead of public name"20:37
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: and what else is the public info first + last name used for?20:38
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: it shouldn't be used anywhere20:39
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: why ask it then?20:39
SRabbelierI have a half-cooked fix for that outstanding20:39
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: it's used for shipping?20:39
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: There is a shipping name field20:39
iamaregeethis is  the error i am facing while trying to run melange
tpbTitle: Paste #4726 | LodgeIt! (at
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: not everybody fills that in20:39
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: remove public name and make shipping name mandatory20:40
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: That will tell people that the name will not show up in the site20:40
SRabbelieriamaregee: pastebin the contents of build/app.yaml please20:40
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: or just remove the whole shipping stuff and make the current one that is already required the shipping20:41
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: indeed20:41
SRabbelierthat doesn't work20:41
SRabbeliersince students might have a different legal address for their cards20:41
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: is there a ticket for showing public name in comments?20:41
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: At least you could add a comment on the form that the public info is not actually public info20:42
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: no there isn't20:42
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: it is public info though20:42
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: If it's public info then UTF8 just isn't acceptable20:43
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: I see your point20:43
SRabbelierI'll take it up with Carol20:43
BetelgeuseThere is a world outside the US20:43
* gevaerts looks around20:44
tpb<> (at
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: please stop assuming it has anything to do with being in the US20:45
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: it's offensive20:45
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: Because of the US we are stuck with ASCII in general20:46
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: my remark stands20:47
*** malex has left #melange20:47
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: And it isn't offensive that I can't use my real name?20:47
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: the way you've been addressing me doesn't help your case much now does it?20:47
BetelgeuseI would say the communication isn't working.20:48
BetelgeuseIt should be clear that I am neither a native English speaker and from a different cultural background.20:49
gevaertsBetelgeuse: have you considered the possibility that some of the people involved here are also not Americans or native English speakers?20:49
*** orcuna has joined #melange20:49
Betelgeusegevaerts: more than likely20:50
Betelgeusegevaerts: But to be offended by the comment you would need to be American20:50
gevaertsBetelgeuse: good one20:50
*** madrazr has quit IRC20:51
BetelgeuseHere that is used in good spirit.20:51
orcunaSRabbelier: hi, i've created a patch for documents to support templating features20:52
orcunaSRabbelier: i want to show you before i submit20:52
SRabbelierorcuna: whoah, nice work!20:52
SRabbelierorcuna: just send it as a patch to the mailing list, where we'll review it20:53
SRabbelierorcuna: dont' be shy :)20:53
orcunaSRabbelier: ok :) but i want to ask first, i added {{program_name}} as variable20:54
orcunaSRabbelier: what else can be added?20:54
orcunaSRabbelier: i mean as variable20:54
SRabbelierorcuna: ah, that depends on the situation where we'll use the functionality I suppose; I assume it's just passing in a context?20:55
orcunaSRabbelier: yes. so i submit to mail-list and discuss it there?20:56
SRabbelierorcuna: sounds good, go for it20:56
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: To sum up I didn't mean to offend anyone and all efforts to fix the thing are appreciated.20:56
BetelgeuseNow that it's acknowledged that there is an issue.20:57
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: ok, thank you20:57
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: sorry if I snapped at you20:57
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: We've been getting a lot of flak on this and there isn't much we can do about most of it20:58
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: modulo the things you mentioned20:58
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: Well the expectations for websites are pretty high these days.20:58
orcunaSRabbelier: is it any problem if i share it via instead of adding as attachment. (for easier review)20:58
BetelgeuseSRabbelier: Especially in this kind of a crowd.20:59
SRabbelierorcuna: both inline and attach it please, so we can reply inline21:00
SRabbelierBetelgeuse: no lie21:00
orcunaSRabbelier: yes, thanks21:00
Betelgeusethanks and good night everyone21:04
Betelgeuseor whatever time it is :)21:06
