jdrakeDoes anyone else have trouble with launchpad being a bit slow?01:34
matsubarajdrake: any page in particular or generally?01:43
jdrakeDoing anything seems to be delayed quite a bit, say from 5 to 10 seconds per change.01:44
matsubarajdrake: it feels slow to me in general, but I'm in Brazil, some latency and slowness expected due to crap ISP. I heard similar complains from Australia and China.01:45
jdrakeI am in southern canada01:45
RAOFThere's the trans-Atlantic latency problem, exacebated by https for you then.01:47
RAOFAlso, launchpad is, in general, not the fastest website on the intertubes.01:47
matsubarajdrake: just heard from one of the sysadmins that some of our hardware is very busy at the moment doing system stuff and should be back to normal operation real soon.01:48

MvGHi! I've got a bunch of related projects that are likely to be merged into one project at some point in the future. I'd like to register them with launchpad now.14:06
MvGI guess I'd have one super project for the whole thing, and the subprojects all marked as parts of this. Do I register a super project in the normal way, or is there some special procedure for them?14:06
beunoMvG, you have to request it via answers:  https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad14:07
MvGbeuno: Thanks. A notice to that effect on the project registration page would be useful...14:08
beunoMvG, agreed. Care to file a bug for that?14:09
MvGWill do.14:09
beunothanks  :)14:09
MvGDo you have an idea if it would be possible to turn the super-project into a software project in its own right at a later point in time? Would influence naming.14:09
beunowhat do you mean by "software project"?14:10
MvGI mean, have everything that a normal project has associated with it, not only child projects.14:11
beunocode, bugs, etc?14:12
MvGI just found out, e.g., that I can't file a bug for "mozilla", only for its sub projects.14:12
beunosure, it can have code on its own14:13
MvGIs this due to bughs being disabled for mozilla per project configuration, or due to the fact that super projects can't have bugs for themselves?14:13
beuno(or bugs, or answers...)14:13
beunodue to the fact that they disabled it14:13
beunoah, wait a sec...14:14
beunomaybe I'm wrong14:14
beunooh, I think I am  :)14:14

matsubarabut yes, we can free up the name in case you need it later14:15

=== kiko_ is now known as kiko
kikoMvG, what project are you asking for?14:16
MvGI guess I could also leave them unrelated for the time being. There is not so much to be gained from the super projects for me, I think.14:16

mptjcastro, what do the "Δ" columns mean?15:03
jcastrompt: the delta, possible targets15:04
jcastrompt: that will change, kind of a stupid label15:04
mptjcastro, the delta of what?15:04
mpt(I know it's a delta symbol:-)15:04
jcastroso if there are 100 open bugs and 90 are marked upstream the 10 left over are the delta15:05
jcastrofor the watch column, it's basically bugs that have been marked upstreamable but NOT linked.15:06
mptjcastro, by "upstreamable" do you mean they are registered as occurring in the upstream project?15:06
jcastroso somewhere in the process someone determined it was upstreamable, so then we look at that last number to find possible targets for bug days, etc.15:06
jcastroright, an open upstream task in launchpad15:06
jcastro"also affects"15:07
* kiko thwacks jcastro over the "stupid label" comment15:07
kikonot only do you get all the lwn cred, but you now call my labels stupid in public!!!15:07
* kiko grins15:07
mptkiko, easy solution, don't admit it's your label ;-)15:07
jcastrolet me rephrase15:07
kikojcastro, congratulations on the posting15:07
kikoI'm joking obviously15:08
jcastro"At the time we didn't know what use case that was going to be for so kiko just called it a delta."15:08
jcastroI am unsure what to call it now15:08
jcastroI've been thinking "targets"15:08
mptWould "Needs linking" be accurate?15:08
jcastroyes and no, they're just possibles, it's not 100% that you would link it15:08
kikowell, the delta is in fact the difference between the ideal and the current15:09
kikoi.e. what needs doing15:09
jcastrothey still need to be reviewed by a person.15:09
jcastroand since this is a new "view" on people's bugs there's some old ones in there that are being triaged out, etc.15:09
mptAh, because Launchpad doesn't yet have a canonical way of saying "No, this bug doesn't occur upstream"15:09
jcastrokiko: the lwn thing opened up a chance to mention the bugzilla/trac plugin, which I thought was nice15:09
jcastrompt: and also sometimes people think it's upstream but it might not be.15:10
jcastrosometimes it might involve invalidating a link15:10
kikojcastro, yeah, and in fact somebody yesterday asked about it15:10
jcastrobut generally speaking it's a list of targetable linkables15:10
jcastrobefore the OOo bug day it had 72 targets15:10
jcastrowe got that down to 4415:10
jcastroso that's ~30 some bugs forwarded that day, which isn't a bad start15:11
jcastroconsidering that making a new bug upstream and linking is pretty time consuming15:11
* mpt finds an oops :-]15:28
kikojcastro, that's a fantastic result15:45
kikojcastro, now, to make it a reproducible part of our community process15:46
kikobut woo, that's such a cool thing15:46
jcastrokiko: yeah, we just need to "catch up" projects that are at the bottom of the list. Which is one thing the report is good at finding out. :D15:47
wgrantjcastro: The things at the bottom of the list are ten thousand packages below the bottom of the visible one...15:47
jcastrowgrant: yes, but right now the top 100 packages by open bugs seems a good place to start.15:48
wgrantjcastro: Quite likely.15:48
jcastroeventually one will just be able to query any package and get a result15:49
wgrantWhich eventually?15:49
jcastrowe would need to write that feature in obviously15:49
jcastroso you can type in any package in the archive and get it's linkage numbers15:50

beunoshould be, yes22:59
persiaOK.  I'll file it then.22:59
persiaSeparately, I've asked a question, and been given an answer that the problem that causes my question cannot be solved.22:59
beunolocation, etc?23:00
persiaNeither of "Problem Solved" or "I Still Need an Answer" is correct.  Any suggestions for how to close the question?23:00
persiaYes, but the nature of the question isn't the issue :)23:00
beunoright, I'd say mark it as solved, as long as bugs where filed to fix the underlying problem23:01
persiaOK.  I don't like the implied semantics of that, but that's another issue.23:01
beunowell, you could insist on trying to get your specific case fixed23:01
beunoie, your location reset23:02
persiaIs that even possible?  I was advised that it wasn't possible at all, which I guessed to be due to some lazily enforced constraint in the DB that would prevent a reset to null.23:03
persiaI was planning to just move to a pole, and set my timezone as a workaround.23:03
beunoI don't really know if it's possible or not, but unless it will really make a difference, I'd say being located in a pole is really cool (?)23:05
* wgrant puts persia somewhere else.23:05
persiaYeah, but it's wrong.  I prefer to be vague, but I don't like being wrong.23:05
* wgrant wonders why the attributes are read-only anyway.23:06
wgrantIt seems pretty useless and wrong.23:06
persiaWIth the map tool as it exists, I can actually pinpoint myself within a meter, which is part of what bothers me about it.23:06
beunoyou could be vague, I was when I set it23:06
persiabeuno: No.  You can't be vague.  You can only be wrong.23:06
beunojust set it to the geographical center of the city23:06
persiaRight, which is deliberately incorrect.23:07
persiaI have no real desire to lie (which is why I set my location somewhere fairly random, and appreciate that it has since been moved)23:07

kikopersia, well, it's an imprecision. and yeah, but what's the practical consequence of that imprecision?23:10
persiaSomeone uses alternate sources of information to find my location.23:11
persiaOK.  It's a trivial matter to find the current physical location of most people within about 4 hours.23:12
persiaThis has been true for quite a while now.23:12
kikookay, let's say I agree with that. what's your point? :)23:12
persiaOn the other hand, doing so requires access to several different sources of information, and integration.23:12
exarkunkiko: Someone might be looking for persia23:13
persiaI don't like having it somewhere as googleable as LP, but I also don't like lying.23:13

=== zooko is now known as zookoafk
wgrantWhy isn't location unsettable? Surely it's extra work to configure the permissions the current way...23:17
beunowgrant, my wild guess would be because people can hide their location, so it doesn't seem like a good investment of time23:18
beunobut, this is a wild and personal guess  :)23:18
wgrantbeuno: But that implies hiding one's timezone as well.23:18
wgrantWhich might not be particularly desirable.23:18
beunosure, it would be a corner case23:19
persiaActually, it's typically undesireable, as one wants to hint the timezone to advise others when is a good time for coordination.23:19
beunoI don't disagree, I'm not too sure it's a great investment of time23:19
persiaI'd say the same thing about the map in general :)23:20
wgrantBut implementing a feature where others can set one's personal information is?23:20
beunoI like the feature23:20
beunoseeing where everybody is located on a map23:20
persia(not that I really mind it, except for not being able to unset my location, and needing to press an extra confirmation button every time I visit a person page)23:20
exarkunOf course I'm sure I don't need to point this out, but once Launchpad is open source, this is exactly the sort of thing that interested parties will be able to contribute an implementation of, so Canonical won't have to worry that it's not a good investment of development time. ;)23:20
