evandhrmm, uh oh06:14
evandI don't know for sure if this is related to any open bugs06:14
evandbut if a device is /dev/hdaX in fstab on an operating system we're importing from, is it really safe to do a 's/hda/sda/g'?06:15
evandfor cases where they're not using UUIDs06:15
evandcjwatson: any thoughts on that?  I'm not sure how to proceed.  It currently would just try to mount /dev/hdaX.06:16
mptevand, have you considered special-casing the default IE bookmarks (e.g. "Free Hotmail") and the default Windows wallpaper (the rolling hills) to not import them?07:33
mptIf you want to blacklist the IE favorites, their URLs are listed in <http://www.mylinkvault.com/popular/popular.rss>07:38
mpt(probably blacklisting the http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll* pattern would be enough, because it's a redirection service, so people won't manually bookmark anything with an URL matching that pattern)07:40

evandmpt: indeed, I think that's probably best.  Should I also blacklist the default wallpaper?08:06
evandmpt: nevermind, I somehow didn't notice that on the first read08:14
evandwill do08:14
mptevand, are you copying the files or just linking to them?08:14
mptI suggest copying it but not setting it08:14
mptbecause ~95% of people using it will be using it because they don't really care what their wallpaper is08:15
mptso they might as well get the Ubuntu default08:15
evandthat might prove confusing.  Lets say the rolling hills is the wallpaper for a user.  So because we're blacklisting it I say that there is no wallpaper available to import, but then I copy it over anyway.08:16
evandmpt: indeed, I agree on that08:16
mptand the other ~5% can easily find it because it's in the same directory as their other background pictures08:16
evandSo should I say that there's wallaper available for import just not set it?08:17
mptah, now I understand your question08:17
evandI'm starting to agree with that latter approach08:17
mpthmm, if you're already asking explicitly, might as well just do what the user asks08:18
evandwell all I say is "[ ]  Wallpaper"08:19
mptSo maybe the checkbox should be off by default if the current background is the Windows default, and on by default otherwise08:19
evandBut I tend to agree with that blog post on Planet Ubuntu08:19
evandBut that's also probably confusing because the expanders on the usernames are collapsed by default so you can see all the usernames without having to scroll08:20
evandI think I'll just go with the latter approach for now, that is to import it but not set it if it's the windows default (in the case of wallpapers)08:20
evandand see how that flies08:20
mptAre all the checkboxes currently off by default?08:20
evandall on by default08:20
evandsorry, it's 2am08:21
evandone second08:21
=== mpt wonders why Feisty has a "Debian Etch" background picture available
evandmpt: unselected by default.  Selecting a user automatically selects all the items below it.08:23
evandit's done this way to give the user the easy opportunity to skip m-a by just hitting next08:24
evandas there wont be any users to import that way08:24
cjwatsonevand: that certainly isn't safe - might still be /dev/hda09:21
cjwatsonI can't think of a way to avoid being screwed in that situation without booting the OS in question, TBH09:22
evandcjwatson: would trying it (s/hda/sda/g) and failing gracefully be appropriate for feisty?09:38
cjwatsonI don't think so - it could be a totally different disk!10:16
evandright, so then just fail in those cases?10:20
evandgracefully, of course10:20
evandand continue on to the next os10:20
cjwatsonyeah, I'd say so10:22
cjwatsonthis is really a "you're screwed, sorry" scenario. Fortunately I should think it'll only come up in migrations from fairly complex (not just a single big filesystem) Linux installations10:23
evandwell, the code is already there for that :).  I will however, make sure that it is in fact failing gracefully in such situations.10:27
