marnanelhttps://bugs.launchpad.net/metacity/+bugs?field.status_upstream=pending_bugwatch says that there are four bugs in Metacity which need forwarding upstream.  I want to do so.  How do I do it?  Do I just create the bugs in the upstream tracker and then mark them in launchpad?20:38
pochumarnanel: yes, create them upstream, and then click on "also affects upstream" in the launchpad report, and add the upstream url there20:40
marnanelpochu: okay, great, thanks.  I don't need special LP permissions to do that?20:41
pochumarnanel: I don't think so, but I could be wrong. Let me know if I am and I'll add the links for you20:44
marnanelthanks-- will try it20:48
IulianNo, you don't need any special permissions.20:48
marnanelOkay, sorry I'm not getting this, but I clicked "Also affects:  Distribution/package", and that gives  me a space I can put the URL, which is fine; but it also requires me to pick the name of a distro.  I can't say Ubuntu or it gives an error, and anyway it's not specifically Ubuntu, it's an upstream thing.21:09
marnanelany ideas?21:20
affluxmarnanel: choose "also affects project"21:26
marnaneland I type "upstream" in the box there?21:34
affluxno21:36
affluxwhat was the package? metacity right?21:36
marnanelright21:36
affluxit should have a linked upstream project, I'll check that21:37
affluxmarnanel: you should come to a page that is titled "confirm project", you should have three options: "URL for the upstream bug", "mailed the followign upstream contact", "I don't want to link it". Choose the first one and put the URL there21:39
affluxmarnanel: oh. I think you may be looking at the wrong set of bugs21:39
affluxthe bugs you looked at are (probably unintentionally) filed against the "upstream project" metacity (in the launchpad sense)21:40
affluxmarnanel: they are *not* filed in ubuntu21:40
affluxerr, wait21:40
=== Syntux_ is now known as Syntux
affluxmarnanel: it's only some of them that are not filed in ubuntu. The best url to get all bugs in ubuntu's metacity that need forwarding is https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/metacity/+bugs?field.status_upstream=pending_bugwatch21:41
affluxmarnanel: for those, there is already the "upstream" task (the one where is no "Ubuntu" in the table with status and importancy etc.), you click on the expander for that task and put your URL there21:43
affluxmarnanel: sorry for the confusion, I usually forward bugs that are not marked for forwarding ;)21:43
marnanelafflux: Thank you-- I'll get on with forwarding those, then.21:43
marnanelI do have a question, though21:44
marnanelhttps://bugs.launchpad.net/metacity/ shows "4 bugs need forwarding upstream".21:44
marnaneland there are only two given by that URL you gave.21:44
marnanelWhy is that?21:44
affluxyes, you're right. The bugs on the "ubuntu/metacity" URL are all on the "metacity" URL too. That is because launchpad hosts upstream projects (like metacity) as well as distributions (like ubuntu). The bugs were looking at in this channel are in the distribution and *maybe* in the project.21:46
affluxSo "your" URL has "ubuntu bugs" as well as bugs from other distributions (eg. baltix).21:47
afflux"my" URL only has "ubuntu bugs"21:47
affluxdoes that answer your question?21:47
* marnanel reads this carefully :)21:49
marnanelYes, it does.  Thank you!21:50
affluxyou're welcome21:50
affluxgoing to bed, good night21:51
KevinOberleHow would I go about getting a bug fixed before hardy's final release??23:03
KevinOberleI think it's a pretty important one and a really easy fix too23:03
secretlondonKevinOberle, got the number?23:09
KevinOberleyah I just reported it 22003323:11
Nafallobug 22003323:11
ubotuLaunchpad bug 220033 in ubuntu "Libflashsupport Not Installed With Flash" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/22003323:12
NafalloKevinOberle: unlikely to get fixed.23:13
Nafallowell... "fixed"23:13
timinghey, anyone here with good contacts with the ALSA team?23:14
RAOFKevinOberle: Actually, that's entirely deliberate, and was done to fix flash crashes.23:14
KevinOberleRAOF: ok thanks I wasn't aware of that, It's a shame though because now flash doesn't play nice with other audio programs23:15
timingbecause I submit a bug to launchpad related to ALSA. I also asked someone from ALSA for help. He said he had put a fix in cvs (don't know which revision number). I'm just wondering if this fix is supposed to be in ubuntu already23:15
timinganyway, this is the bug23:16
timingbug 20904723:16
ubotuLaunchpad bug 209047 in linux "Sound did work in 2.6.24-5 but not in 2.6.24-7 till 2.6.24-16" [Undecided,Incomplete] https://launchpad.net/bugs/20904723:16
virtualdwhy isn't d-mix in alsa used instead?23:17
RAOFvirtuald: Instead of?23:17
virtualdpulseaudio23:18
RAOFvirtuald: Because they're almost totally different things?23:18
virtualddosen't both make it so you can play sound from different apps at the same time?23:18
RAOFYes.  And then pulseaudio _also_ allows network-transparent sound, sound caching, better latency meausuring...23:19
RAOFThe ability to mix two sound streams in software is one of pulseaudio's smaller features :)23:20
virtualdbloat? :P23:22
virtualdno i guess it's small23:22
