dholbachor just "Seb"06:48
=== dholbach_ is now known as dholbach
jmldholbach: isn't there a lot of variation in Germany for pronouncing 'Holbach' though?07:04
dholbachjml: there's just two groups of people, some say "Hohlbach" (long o) and others say "Hollbach" (very short o)07:17
persiadholbach: Are there not also variations in pronunciation of 'ch': while it's rarely 'k', I'd expect that it would move from the back of the throat through the middle of the mouth, depending on region.07:18
jmlwhat about the 'ch'? I've been told that Kölners make it sound like the English "sh"07:18
dholbachpersia: "Bach" is a pretty common word - it's "brook" in English, so everybody gets it right07:32
persiadholbach: Oh, I was sure it was "right", just for different values of "right".  An example from English would be the wide variety of ways to pronounce "creek"07:33
dholbachjml: "ch" can be "ç" or in the Köln region a bit more like "ʃ", but also "ʜ" (the throat sound in the "ch" of "Bach")07:38

pochuhi all09:57
pochuis there anybody from motu-release?09:57
TheMusopochu: Yep.10:02
pochuhi TheMuso10:02
pochuTheMuso: is it neccessary to write a bug report for every upload saying it's bug fix only, attaching the changelog entry? I thought it wasn't neccessary but it's been pointed to me that https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FreezeExceptionProcess says that (under the motu-release bug fix only section)10:03
TheMusopochu: I can't remember off hand, I jsut refer to the docs in cases where I am not immediately sure.10:04
pochuTheMuso: ok, I'll mail ubuntu-motu@ to clarify it10:05
Hobbseepochu: if you don't, i doubt you'll get caught up regardless.10:05
pochuTheMuso: thanks10:05
persiapochu: I've always felt that that clause only applied in cases where there was a new upstream version, to confirm, but it's leftovers from when we had an explicit UpstreamVersionFreeze10:05
pochuI don't think writing a bug report has any value if I can upload without anybody reviewing it10:07
pochuit's just an annoyance10:07
Hobbseepochu: i agree with you, but got overruled.10:08
norsettopochu: if you write it in the changelog entry is enough, bug report is only necessary for things that do not get uploaded directly (like syncs, or sponsoring requests)10:10
persiapochu: Filing a bug report for something you're fixing has value for documentation purposes.  It allows one to provide significantly greater verbosity about the issue than one would want to include in debian/changelog10:11
persiaNote that it's not appopriate in all cases, but can be useful in some.10:12
pochunorsetto: I see. in those cases (e.g. sync request) is it necessary to put the upstream changelog diff, or just saying it's a bug fix only release is good enough?10:15
norsettopochu: the more you document the more is obviously better10:15
persiapochu: The basic rule of thumb is to provide enough documentation that nobody can complain that you did it wrong later.10:16
iulianRainCT: ping10:16
pochupersia: that makes sense10:17
norsettopochu: what persia said can also be said in shorter words "CYA", a useful acronym in real-life (tm) too10:17
persiaWell, it's also interesting for changelog readers.  I read changelogs, and I much prefer to see quick snippets, and only read the details if they interest me.10:18
persiaI don't like the habit of some people pasting all of NEWS into the changelog: it no longer makes narrative sense.10:19
pochuI still would like to be able to request syncs or upload new revisions or whatever without having to put a changelog.diff in a bug report, so could we update the policy? :)10:19
persiapochu: It's considered best practice to put a debian/changelog diff in a sync request, even when we're not in a freeze.10:20
persiaFor new upstream revisions, it's not hard to copy the content into the description when filing a bug, and you'll want to cover yourself anyway.10:20
pochupersia: right, I'm talking about the upstream ChangeLog, sorry10:21
persiaFor most uploads, the debian/changelog is going to get posted to several relevant bugs anyway.10:21
norsettopochu: and don't get yelled at by those nasty archive admins10:21
pochuheh, in this case it was a contributor :)10:21
persiapochu: I think that belongs in the bug, so I can view it easily without having to download and extract the package if I have questions.10:21
pochubut he was backed up by policy, so I can't complain ;)10:22
persiapochu: Also, especially because of the hack in CDBS to not ship upstream changelogs, I need to get it somewhere.10:22
persiapochu: So, while I understand you don't want to post it, please do, because I might want to read it.10:22
persia(and that's as a *user*, not as a developer)10:23
pochuso if consensus is to have it there, I'll try to do it10:23
persiaI'm not sure it should be in policy: just because I want to read it doesn't mean you shouldn't have a policy debate, but it's at least a use case for having it.10:23

nxvlbash-completion is the package in charge of making all the non-commands completions? or there is another package?15:23
Hobbseenxvl: command-not-found15:23
persianxvl: You'll want to look in all of bash, bash-completions, and command-not-found15:24
nxvlwhat i want is to type 'apt-get inst' then tab and it completes 'install'15:24
nxvlis that what those packages are for?15:24
persianxvl: I think that's in bash-completions, but some completions are in bash directly.  Look at the packages to determine which is correct for apt-get15:25
nxvlcommand-not-found is that awesome magical package that tell me what to install to get that command?15:25
* nxvl HUGS Hobbsee and persia 15:25
* persia doesn't like command-not-found because it keeps making suggestions for "les" when I'm not sure whether I want ls or less.15:26
superm1persia, make an alias in your bashrc for les -> less15:32
superm1persia, that's what i did a log time ago for sl15:32

_rubensuperm1: got a question about dkms .. im failing to find out if dkms can be used for distributing binary packages .. all 'docs' ive seen on it, show "build-on-install" .. and i dont want to have to build it on all machines i want a certain 3rd party kmod15:39
superm1_ruben, yes you can distribute prebuilt kernel modules with it15:39
sorenWhich package do I file FFe's against when it's about a new package?15:39
superm1_ruben, there are options when building to only include the binary or only the source instead of both15:39
sorenJust file it against "ubuntu"?15:39
_rubensuperm1: hmm .. must've been missing that then15:40
_rubensuperm1: which doc/link/whatever do you suggest for getting started with dkms?15:40
superm1_ruben, but be wary of shipping with just the binary module, particularly because newer kernel ABI's are added to Ubuntu.15:40
superm1_ruben, a combination between the manpage and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/DkmsDriverPackage15:41
tilluxheya there. is there a way to create a gtk/whatever gui in order to replace an existing ncurse one?15:41

ykphuahafter I do apt-get source foopackage, how do I let apply the debian/patches and do a configure, but stop there, without doing make17:46
slytherinykphuah: depends on what patch system is used. If it is dpatch then inside source do 'dpatch apply all' I am not sure about other patch systems.17:52
slytherinykphuah: You can find out which patch system is being used using command 'what-patch'17:52
ykphuahslytherin: it uses quilt, so I have generated a patch of my own... which should be applied after all the patches in debian/17:53
ykphuahslytherin: and now I want to test out the patch.17:53
ykphuahslytherin: so I just quilt push -a, apply my own patch, then do dpkg-buildpackage?17:54
slytherinykphuah: I don't understand why are you trying to apply patch manually. But yes, quilt push -a should do.17:55
asomethingykphuah: with quilt there's a couple extra step17:55
ykphuahok, actually, I fixed one of the bugs/annoyances in network-manager, what I did from beginning is, do "apt-get source network-manager", then "dpkg-buildpackage", this will make sure my source directory is applied with those debian/patches, and configured with the correct flags, and then I start editing the source codes.17:57
ykphuahafter I edit the source codes, I do make and make install for testing.17:57
ykphuahand after I finish doing testing this way, i generated a patch.17:58
ykphuahmove the path I modified as "new", then I do "apt-get source network-manager" again, move that to "old", then I do quilt push on the "old"17:58
ykphuahand do a diff, take out the parts that I changed.17:58
ykphuahnow I end up with a simple .patch file, which I would like to test.17:58
ykphuahI have went thru the URL for PatchSystems before, but I haven't really find a page that tells me how to simplify what I described above.17:59
ykphuahWas I doing it totally wrong way?17:59
ykphuahi wanted to submit this patch to the launchpad for review.17:59
slytherinykphuah: I am not entirely sure that procedure is correct. I suppose dpkg-buildpackage will deapply all patches once it is done with build.17:59
ykphuahso is there a way to ask dpkg-buildpackage stop halfway?18:02
ykphuahi assume it does a couple of steps -> patch, configure, make, make install18:02
ykphuahis there a way to get it to stop halfway? i have read the man pages but couldn't seem to know how.18:02
slytherinykphuah: What do you exactly want to do? Test your patch right?18:03
slytherinykphuah: I have a doubt that the way you created your patch is right.18:04
ykphuahslytherin: i want to learn what's the proper way of creating a patch for reviewing in launchpad.18:04
slytherinykphuah: But I am no expert in quilt so please wait for someone else to answer.18:04
* slytherin likes dpatch more.18:04
laga_quilt is teh awesome IMHO. dpatch is a bit clumsy ;)18:05
ykphuahslytherin: well, so dpkg-buildpackage knows to call quilt or dpatch?18:05

laga_although i should use its patch editing more18:05
persiaykphuah: There are a number of different ways to produce patches in the right format.  The link ubottu just provided is probably the best overview.18:06
slytherinlaga_: quilt is too complex for me.18:06
persiaIn the specific case of network-manager, it's probably best to present your fixes as a bzr branch.18:06
persia(this is not typically true, but that package is special)18:06
laga_slytherin: i used it for a big patch series of about 150 patches18:06
laga_and it was awesome for that :) no packaging task, tho18:07

karoogageser: no no exception for intrepid.  (Just a first time package / packager...)20:32
norsettogeser: how important is it that we do this switch to openjdk-6 for intrepid ?20:47
gesernorsetto: I don't know if it's a release goal (do we have any for universe?). But openjdk-6 is the default JRE so it would be really nice if the -java package use it (especially when they use the non-free sun-java-* packages now)20:54
norsettogeser: sure, I understand its nice, I'm just trying to understand the benefit of allowing this versus the potential of breaking things20:55
norsettogeser: is there a need to patch upstream sources for this?20:56
geserdepends on upstram but afaik no, either it compiles with it or not (if it doesn't compile yet it still build-depends on sun-java-*)21:00
gesernorsetto: but I'm no java expert, I more a upload bitch for slytherin :) He knows more about java packaging than me.21:03
