LetterRiphi folks - happy easter :)19:04
LetterRipan idea i had for the 'accept proposal' is make it a tri state - Yes/Maybe/No instead of binary19:04
LetterRipthe reason is that we have strong proposals that we almost certainly will accept, maybe proposals that need clarification from the student on the proposal and more knowledge of the students capabilities - so will depend of further feedback; and no proposals which are so weak as to not merit further consideration19:05
LetterRipthe maybes must be currently listed as either Yeses or Noes - so we have to either sort through to seperate them from Yeses, or sort through and seperate them from Noes.  And since the Maybes are where most of our mentor effort needs to be focused19:07
LetterRipit is a bit of a pain.19:07
* gevaerts remembers someone trying to convince him once that threestates are useless and that you need a fourth state to make the mathematics look nice19:09
LetterRiphehe19:09
gevaertsI can't remember the details unfortunately19:10
LetterRipactually the yes,maybes and noes could be mapped to the request numbers19:11
LetterRipie number of slots requested19:11
LetterRipminimum and maximum19:11
gevaertsIdeally this would also work with alternatove proposals where you prefer one but are willing to accept the other on case of duplicates19:12
gevaertsThose are somewhere between maybe and yes I think. You don't want to count them for slots, but you also don't want to forget about them too early19:12
LetterRipgevaerts: ok - so four bits :)19:13
LetterRiper four states19:13
LetterRipYes, alternates, maybes, noes19:13
gevaertsI think in the end you want people to be able to customise melange for their own org :)19:14
LetterRipheh19:14
LetterRipwell alternates are probably in the 'maybes' category19:15
LetterRipso not strictly necessary19:15
LetterRipwe already need to calculate #slots requested and #max slots19:15
LetterRipso inferring it from accepted and maybes19:15
LetterRipwould be a logical step19:15
gevaertsThey are maybes, yes, but should they be counted for max slots?19:16
LetterRipwell the max slots is being desired by the 10th19:16
LetterRipie before you know for sure19:17
LetterRipalso the definition carols provided for min_slots and max_slots map well to yesses and maybes19:17
gevaertsIt's probably good enough, yes. I suspect there aren't *that* many projects with more than one really credible candidate.19:21
