Daisyab__ I have submitted my created my profile, submitted a proof of enrollment form but when I click on the button "Submit your proposal", i get a page saying no data received.01:48
Daisyab__Have my proof of enrollment forms not been accepted?01:48
ollyDaisyab__: if you look on the front page, is there now a "submit proposal" linl?01:49
ollyor button maybe01:50
Daisyab__there is01:50
ollyoh sorry, you're clikcing that01:50
ollyi misread that the "no data received" was on trying to submit the enrollment form01:50
ollynot sure, sorry01:50
ollyyou might want to try with a different browser, or perhaps in a private/anon browser window01:51
*** anth_x has joined #melange01:51
ollyotherwise, wait for somebody useful to wake up01:51
Daisyab__i've tried two01:51
Daisyab__i'll try a private browser window01:51
Daisyab__ok thanks01:51
Daisyab__who should I be waiting up for?01:52
anth_xi'm our org admin (plan9). a prospective student got confused and submitted a connection request as a mentor. i have not accepted. will he be prohibited from applying as a student if the mentor connection request just sits there?01:53
ollyDaisyab__: not sure who's likely to be around soonest, but the melange devs all have auto-op here01:54
ollyanth_x: see the !unmentor factoid in #gsoc01:54
Daisyab__olly, thanks01:55
ollyhis problem is he's already made his account a mentor account, not that he's tried to connect to you01:55

man1acmadrazr: Hi06:00
madrazrman1ac: Hi06:02
man1acmadrazr: i am Brian, i installed melange successfully and took the one of the Bienvenue issues - Lookup by email06:04
man1acmadrazr: i just succeeded in implementing that feature, but i had to test my algorithms by turning off lookup by username06:05
*** suranga_ has quit IRC06:05

madrazrashishk: hello06:52
ashishkmadrazr: currently, there is no way a student can delete or edit his comments on proposal ,06:52
madrazrashishk: that is by design06:53
madrazrwe had talked about this a lot06:53
madrazrabout whether we should allow students to edit or delete the comments06:53
madrazredit is a definite NO NO06:53
madrazruntil we implement diffs for comments too :P06:54
madrazrashishk: a student can say something06:54
madrazrgo back06:54
madrazredit it06:54
madrazrand claim he/she did not say that at all06:54
madrazrdelete is more or less based on the same idea06:54
madrazrif we can somehow show edit diffs06:55
madrazrwe can definitely enable those features06:55
ashishkmadrazr: so,basically a student will be able to edit/delete his comment when there will be diff feature on melange :p06:57
*** vijay13 has joined #melange06:59
ashishkmadrazr: coming back to my proposal,I was thinking of adding a look profile feature also for umbrella orgs ,will it be ok,where they can see the profile of student,mentor and admin06:59
ashishkmadrazr: like the one in admin dashboard07:00
madrazrashishk: we shouldn't do that07:00
madrazrfor privacy concerns07:00
madrazrwe cannot show profile data to other users07:01
ashishkmadrazr: okay07:02
ashishkmadrazr: btw, i have changed my proposal , please have a look at it (atleast on the timeline) and suggest me if something more need to be done regarding the umbrella orgs.07:03

ollyor maybe several07:38
bipulwhen i get the email? after 21st March ?07:40

man1acmadrazr: but i am not too clear with the time line part of my proposal because i don't yet follow understand the code base, to know how i will implement07:55
man1acmadrazr: typo: *fully*07:55
madrazrman1ac: your timeline can be tentative, we are not going to hold you against it07:56
madrazrman1ac: but you need to demonstrate that you have spent enough time thinking about what you are proposing07:56
man1acmadrazr: thanks a million. That will help07:56
madrazrman1ac: and provide rough estimates at least07:56
madrazrman1ac: we do let +/- 1/2 weeks during the coding phase07:57
madrazrbut if you have no clue or estimates at all, that is bad07:57

jasvirmadrazr: Hello17:31
madrazrjasvir: I saw the issue you linked to17:32
madrazrEzio says "This is a new feature, so it can go only in 3.5."17:32
madrazrthen we are only in luck :P17:32
madrazrwe shouldn't consider this library then17:32
madrazrjasvir: Python 2.x is dead17:33
jasvirmadrazr: but we can make pypi package. A new library and user can install it while install other libs.17:33
madrazrjasvir: and we are just not willing to accept that fact17:33
madrazrjasvir: I do not think it is worth your time writing the diffing library17:34
madrazrjasvir: also it is a lot more work than a GSoC project17:34
jasvirmadrazr: So what is your suggestion?17:34
*** carols has joined #melange17:34
madrazrjasvir: find another library?17:34
jasvirmadrazr: I found npmjs difflib.17:35
jasvirmadrazr: It is also ported from python difflib.17:35
*** skathpalia has joined #melange17:35

tpbTitle: difflib (at
madrazrlooks somewhat better17:37
madrazrbut OMG!17:37
madrazrwhat year are we in?17:37
madrazrwhy don't we have good diff libraries?17:37
madrazror what are we missing?17:37
madrazrI am wondering what diff library does rietveld use17:38
jasvirmadrazr: rietveld?17:38
madrazrjasvir: the code review system17:39
madrazrjasvir: also wondering what diff library does Facebook's Phabricator use?17:39
jasvirmadrazr: I'll explore it.17:39
madrazrtheir diff output is neat too17:39
madrazralso wondering if github's diff tool is open source17:39
jasvirmadrazr: I want to ask one more thing.17:40
madrazrjasvir: rietveld actually uses difflib!17:40
jasvirmadrazr: We have to make full revision history?17:40
tpb<> (at
madrazrjasvir: what does "full" mean? Explain please?17:41
jasvirmadrazr: I mean, history from submission. Ther can be n number of revisions.17:42
madrazrjasvir: probably yes17:42
madrazrwe had this discussion earlier here17:42
*** emoosx has quit IRC17:42
jasvirmadrazr: Or we have to compare fresh submission with previous.17:42
madrazrjasvir: how would implementing diffs for 2 revisions be different than 2 million revisions?17:42
madrazrjasvir: well that might affect how we store and compute diffs17:43
madrazri.e. the strategies we chose17:43
jasvirmadrazr: It'll take much more resources. That's why I am asking.17:43
madrazrbut I would like this system to be generic in the number of revisions N17:43
jasvirmadrazr: Ok17:43
madrazrjasvir: what type of resources?17:44
jasvirmadrazr: resources I mean, storing n revision will take much more space than storing only two. Finding specified revision from N.17:45
madrazrjasvir: don't worry about storage17:45
jasvirmadrazr: Will do more computation17:46
madrazrjasvir: we have enough storage :)17:46
jasvirmadrazr: hahaha...17:46
madrazrjasvir: computation part might be tricky17:46
jasvirmadrazr: More carbon footprints :P17:46
madrazrbut if you are not computing incremenetal diffs against revision number 20 and revision number 20 million17:46
*** rishabh_ has quit IRC17:47
madrazryou should be fine I gues17:47
madrazrjasvir: carbon footprint?17:47
madrazrnumber of bits is related to carbon footprint?17:47
jasvirmadrazr: Yeah. I just read it on a blog, more computation lead to more heating.17:48
madrazrjasvir: computation sure17:48
madrazrjasvir: but I am not sure about storage17:48
jasvirmadrazr: So now we need another lib or we can improve difflib?17:49
madrazrjasvir: I am thinking17:49
brlcadmadrazr: looks like GCI completed tasks are no longer accessible, known issue?17:49
madrazrjasvir: rietveld seems to be using difflib17:49
madrazrand it looks fine for me, their output17:49
tpb<> (at
madrazrbrlcad: there is a minor trick here17:51
madrazrbrlcad: as far as we know trying to access GCI tasks when you are signed in is broken17:51
madrazrbrlcad: but GCI tasks are completely public17:51
madrazrso anybody, even without an account should be able to access it17:52
madrazrdownload the work submitted by students17:52
madrazrbrlcad: so if you open GCI tasks in a private browsing window, it should work17:52
madrazrbrlcad: please let me know if even that doesn't work now17:52
madrazrjasvir: why aren't rietveld guys complaining about difflib being so 1990s?17:53
jasvirmadrazr: I think, I have to ask them.17:54
jasvirmadrazr: Let me check if there is any IRC channel.17:56
jasvirmadrazr: If not, thn I'll go to their mailing list.17:56

hasitpbhattashishk, no. Not on melange18:40

madrazrashishk: in the previous years, yes18:43
madrazreven on Melange18:43
madrazrhasitpbhatt: ^18:43
madrazrbut that control was with your organizations18:43
madrazrashishk: hasitpbhatt: if your mentors felt your proposal needed updates and if that wouldn't be unfair to other students by allowing you to update your proposal18:44
madrazrthey could temporarily turn the edit switch on for you to make those changes and turn it back off after18:45
madrazrper proposal, on case by case basis18:45
madrazrwe may be having a regression of that feature this year18:45
madrazrnot sure yet, let's see18:45
hasitpbhattmadrazr: AFAIK, that's why organisations insist to create proposal on their wiki, so that it can be changed, where as, melange proposal doesn't get changed afterwards18:47
madrazrhasitpbhatt: there are many reasons organizations ask to create proposals elsewhere, not just their wikis18:48
madrazrhasitpbhatt: some organizations ask students to create their proposals in Google Docs just because they can use GDocs style commenting18:48
ashishkmadrazr: btw, have you seen my updated proposal18:48
madrazrashishk: not yet18:49
madrazrhasitpbhatt: organizations have their autonomy to handle the proposals as long as the proposal exists on Melange18:49
ashishkmadrazr: please have a look at it when you are free :)18:50

mwilkes|workThe manual says to ask you guys to do it ;)19:10
madrazrmwilkes|work: I am assuming this is for another instance not :)19:10
mwilkes|workI said a dev environment!19:11
madrazrmwilkes|work: oops19:11
madrazrmwilkes|work: sorry about that19:11
mwilkes|workI don't want the responsibility of being an admin of live!19:11
madrazrmwilkes|work: in a dev environment you can just run /seed_db19:11
madrazrmwilkes|work: you should have enough data now19:12
madrazr[email protected] is your program admin19:12
mwilkes|workHm, think it convered my current user to the admin, actually, I see the admin dashboard19:13
madrazrmwilkes|work: np19:14
mwilkes|workMy personal machine is at apple, all I have to play with is a work machine, and that's set up for django dev, not Plone, so thought I'd hack on melange for a bit19:15

tierrammadia: have your org admin set it to "ignore"22:01
*** mudler has joined #melange22:01
mmadiathanks tierra! is that a recent (or from 2013) feature?22:02
tierraI know it was there a couple years ago, maybe longer22:02
tierramentors can't set it though22:03
tierrait's sort of meant to filter out spam proposals22:03
tierrawhich are the ones "not even worth your time to look at", heh22:03
ollycan students see ignored proposals?22:04
ollythey could at one point22:04
*** knowing42 has joined #melange22:04
mmadiawell, it's not a spam proposal, just a horrible one from a 1st year applicant.   (and yes, i have left in-depth suggestions on how to improve it)22:04
ollyi mean in some previous year22:04
ollymmadia: we just reserve "1" for those22:04
ollyand have an admin do a first triage pass22:05
ollythen the mentors can ignore anything with a score of 122:05
mmadiainteresting.   I'll email them with that idea.22:06
ollyi would be interested to know if ignore is visible to the student though22:12
ollyif it is, you wouldn't want to use it for a case like that where you've left suggestions to improve22:12
*** knowing42 has quit IRC22:12
mmadiaright. or simply think a proposal is valid, but no simply not worth the time to review it.22:14
ollyah in fact melange's "tool tip" says the student can see that a proposal is ignored22:16
tierranot sure it really matters at that point22:22

ollywell, we're not supposed to tell them if they're accepted or not22:32
gevaertsWell, technically...22:33
gevaertsIt could be argued that by ignoring them you refuse to either accept or reject them22:33
mmadia... i submitted a feature request of allowing negative scores.22:34
ollyyou're technically correct - the best sort of correct22:34
ollywe shouldn't restrict the scoring to just real numbers22:34
gevaertsmmadia: you can change the maximum score I believe. Does it guard against integer overflow?22:34
*** samgtr has quit IRC22:35
ollyactually, they'll be rational currently22:35
gevaertsOh, good idea!22:35
mmadianope, because in the past i've had mentors that didn't bother reading that year's thoughts on how to score proposals.22:35
gevaertsI mean, some of those proposals are mostly imaginary. The score should reflect that!22:35
mmadiaand when you think about typical mailing list discussions, people offering a "-1" in response to an idea is fairly common.22:36
mmadiabtw, by setting a proposal to "ignore", you let the student know that at least one or more people have acknowledged their proposal as not being worthy to be acknowledged by the other mentors.  :)22:36
mmadia... i find that to be a bit off-putting to students, even if their proposal is horrible.22:37
gevaertsCan you set a proposal to both "ignore" and "accept"?22:38
mmadiaby accepting a proposal, doesn't that potentially consume a slot?22:38
gevaertsWell yes22:39
gevaertsBut that would be the ultimate "Don't tell the students" thing22:39
mmadiahahaha.  You're Ignored and Accepted!22:40
gevaertsIf everyone sets some accepted proposals to "ignore" too, it will be *really* hard todrive anything meaningful from the outside :)22:40
mmadiaespecially if some of the ignore-accepted students are actually ones that the org wants to accept :P22:42
gevaertsOr if they're duplicates22:42
gevaerts"We're ignoring you, but if we weren't, would you prefer org X or Y?"22:43
