SRabbelierscorche: I do think I will *grin*, what ground rules did you have in mind?18:18
scorchejust the standard "congrats to those who have been accepted, if you havent been, please apply again next that that is out of the way, we dont need 600 people telling each other congrats and try again for the next few hours"18:20
* scorche looks that one up18:21

akashm1990Quick question: I havent got any mail, but in my dashboard one of the proposals is now appearing under "projects"  does that mean I'm in??19:00

akashm1990should list all projects be treated as authorative, or should I wait for a mail?19:08

*** sumanah has joined #melange19:33
sumanahI am an org admin.  Suggestions on how to collect the email addresses of all the students I rejected so I can mass-mail them?19:34
SRabbeliersumanah: the "rejected students" message would have been perfect for that19:34
sumanahSRabbelier: I am completely unaware of this message.  Sigh.19:35
sumanahI am assuming it is a Melange feature that I did not know about.19:35
SRabbeliersumanah: you don't read the mentor list?19:36
sumanahSRabbelier: I do read it.19:36
sumanahI was reading it avidly.19:36
SRabbeliersumanah: I sent an announce a few hours ago :P19:36
sumanahSRabbelier: if you added that feature within the last, say, 24 hours19:36
SRabbeliersumanah: admittedly very short notice19:36
sumanahSRabbelier: yes. I had no opportunity to read it, then.19:37
SRabbeliersumanah: sorry about that19:37
sumanahSRabbelier: I shall hand-harvest the email addresses of all our rejected students and send them an email.19:37
* sumanah starts opening proposals in tabs19:37
SRabbeliersumanah: hmm, wait19:37
sumanahthe CSV does not include email addresses of students19:38
SRabbeliercarols: do you mind if I add that?19:38
SRabbeliercarols: see the past 5 lines19:38
carolsSRabbelier: um, we're giving student emails to a developer?19:39
sumanahI am an org admin.19:39
SRabbeliercarols: org admins/mentors, it's already available on the individual proposal page19:40
carolsSRabbelier: then thats fine19:40

slingshot316madrazr: i'm off to bed now, gotta wake up early and do a little studying :P19:41
sumanahSRabbelier: I am already 41 minutes late on getting this rejection email out to rejectees (Thunderbird issues, etc.) so I shall hand-harvest for now, unless you're going to add email as a column within the next 7 min19:41
sumanahthank you for the offer/idea19:41
SRabbeliersumanah: I will add it in the next 7 minutes :P19:42

sumanahThanks SRabbelier -- sorry for my tone, I've just been dealing with one snag after another today19:42
SRabbeliersumanah: *nod*19:43
asmeurerthat would have been nice about an hour ago :)19:51
SRabbelierdeploying now19:51
sumanahasmeurer: like you, I wanted it, and since it wasn't there, I assumed it was for a reason19:51
SRabbelierasmeurer: what would have?19:51
sumanahand did not ask for it19:51
asmeureremail addresses in the dashboard19:51
SRabbelierask, and thou will receive :P19:51
asmeurerI knew about the "rejected students" message, but I felt that a personal message from me was better19:52
asmeurerSRabbelier: speaking of which, did you see my question above?19:52
SRabbelierasmeurer: probably not, what was it?19:52
asmeurerit doesn't seem to be possible to show only the accepted students19:52
SRabbelierasmeurer: eh, just filter on 'should accept' true?19:53
asmeureroh, that will work19:53
asmeurerseems like it should be a value in the popup, though19:53
asmeurer(I mean the "Status" column)19:54
SRabbelierasmeurer: ah, fair enough19:54
SRabbelierasmeurer: deploying19:56
orcunahey, I'm so happy to be accepted, Thank you everybody :D19:57
gedex orcuna: Congratulation dude!19:59
asmeurerSRabbelier: thanks20:00
SRabbelierorcuna: congratulations :)20:00

SRabbeliersumanah: you're welcome20:05
*** sumanah has left #melange20:17
kronosSRabbelier: Can i get to know why i did not get selected or rather what went wrong ?20:24
SRabbelierkronos: we had two very good proposals for the same project, it was a really tough decision20:25
kronosSRabbelier: hmm.. ok.20:26
kronosSRabbelier: any advice for the next time ?20:29
SRabbelierkronos: submit your own idea :)20:29
SRabbelierkronos: (instead of picking from the list), less chance of getting in a conflict20:29
kronosSRabbelier: hmm..but still if u had 4 slots only, the question would be the same ..wouldnt it20:30
SRabbelierkronos: we could have gotten more slots20:30
asmeurerHey, over at
tpb<> (at
asmeurerMatus's project20:44
asmeurerit takes me to Eilidh's project20:44
asmeurersorry, insert "if I click on Matus's..."20:44
SRabbelierasmeurer: ah, deploying fix20:46
SRabbelierasmeurer: madrazr already fixed it, but I hadn't pulled his changes yet20:46
kronosSRabbelier: anyways..i'll keep that in mind. next time hopefully.20:47
madrazrkronos: you need not wait till next time :)20:47
madrazrkronos: IMHO, you should continue working with Melange, irrespective of GSoC20:48
madrazrkronos: Summer of Code without Google's money20:48
SRabbelierkronos: Myself and Lennie started out contributing to Melange outside of GSoC entirely20:48
kronosSRabbelier: ah.. ok..can do that.. :)20:48
asmeurerSRabbelier: is the fix supposed to be live?  I still get the bug.20:48
SRabbelierasmeurer: deploying takes about a minute20:48
kronosmadrazr: can i atleast get a t-shirt :P20:49
SRabbelierasmeurer: try now20:49
madrazrkronos: T-shirt is given by Google. I cannot promise20:49
SRabbelierkronos: you can, although not the official GSoC one :)20:49
SRabbelierkronos: there's swag for outside-of-gsoc participants, including a t-shirt :)20:49

Lenniethings went pretty smoothly I guess :D21:17
LennieTask fixed21:17
SRabbelierLennie: cool21:18
SRabbelierLennie: I had to do a lot of manual fixing21:18
SRabbelierLennie: due to either mentors not being assigned21:18
LennieIsn't that the fault of the org?21:18
SRabbelierLennie: or students having withdrawn21:18
SRabbelierLennie: Well, it was confusing for carol :)21:18
LennieRelatively smooth then21:21
Lenniethe automated part at least :p21:21
SRabbelierLennie: next year we need to un-accept_as_projects projects when they are withdrawn :P21:25
kronosSRabbelier, anyways .. how many ppl applied to melange ??21:27
SRabbelierkronos: *checks*21:27
SRabbelierkronos: 1921:27
SRabbelieronly 9 real contenders though21:28
SRabbelierthe rest didn't really try :)21:28
SRabbeliermaybe if all 4 students stick around and become mentors, we can take on more proposals next year ^^21:28
LennieWell history tell us half will drop21:32
Lenniebut those that stay become quite involved :)21:32
SRabbelierLennie: we'll see ^^21:34
LennieSRabbelier: I take it we'll invite our students to our meeting on Wednesday?21:36
SRabbelierLennie: I've asked them to come say hi on the list in the acceptance mail :)21:37
