anon90I have a friend whose location I set on launchpad. He is very unhappy with this fact and wants it deleted (not hidden, deleted). He has already sent email or submitted a web form about this. I was curious if their are any admin types around who might be able to help is request and, you know, salvage my friendship05:33
anon90so... anybody?05:33
lifelesshe should file a request at answers.launchpad.net/launchpad05:34
micahganon90: why not just go in and remove it?05:34
lifelesswill get actioned quickly05:34
anon90you can05:34
anon90you can05:34
anon90sigh... I can't type05:34
anon90he doesn't see a way to remove it... just to hide it05:34
lifelessanon90: however, *anyone* can set it. so he should a) set it to something wrong :) and b) hide it.05:34
lifelessanon90: that will stop anyone else ever changing it.05:35
micahgpreferably in the same timezone05:35
micahgbut wrong country or something05:36
anon90unfortunately I'm not currently on footing to tell him this... he is quite upset about it (I don't understand but ... I am much more of the web 2.0 social networking mindframe, my currently anonymity aside05:36
anon90I think he really just wants it back to the question mark setting05:36
anon90for some reason he is not happy having any location set ... and he isn't willing to go onto the page to hide it, because to do so is to give Canonical an authoritative location (which I think is overly paranoid... but alas)05:37
wgrantSo, there are two bugs here.05:37
wgrantOne is that other people can set your location - that's not a useful feature any more.05:37
wgrantThe other is that you can't unset your location.05:38
wgrant(the first was also brought up on the recent privacy policy blog post)05:38
anon90frankly, I just didn't think about it too much. but when I set his location I assumed it would ask him to approve it or something first05:38
wgrantOne would think so.05:39
wgrantBut alas, too much sense that would make.05:39
anon90there is a warning thing saying not to give sensitive information without permission ... but I didn't even register it mentally. I came from a project map page and going from one map to another I didn't really notice the warning05:39
anon90grr.. that change probably got in before I set it ... that means that technically he can't cry privacy policy violation05:41
anon90... I think it is a poor policy05:41
anon90*sigh*... I didn't mean to offend him... this "feature" is TEARING FRIENDSHIPS APART!! </melodrama>05:42
lifelessso he should set it to the middle of the atlantic05:42
anon90he is not willing to set any location... (as far as I understand it)05:43
wgrantIs this the question? https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+question/7582405:45
anon90mhmm >_> (I'm sure he wouldn't appreciate me admitting that either)05:46
lifelessspm: ^05:47
wgrantThe response there confuses me.05:47
wgrantEven I could work out the query.05:47
anon90yea... me too05:47
wgrantstub: Oh Lord of the DB, may I have some EmailAddresses on my Person at some point today, please?05:49
lifelesswgrant: ?05:50
anon90*sigh* they really don't understand his desire for privacy do they? (one could argue I clearly am failing to, too ... but thats not the point)05:50
wgrantlifeless: They killed my Launchpad account overnight.05:50
lifelesswgrant: score!05:50
wgrantlifeless: By removing all confirmed/preferred email addresses from it.05:50
stubwgrant: Sure. Need launchpad username and preferred email address. Nobody sent them to me.05:50
wgrantstub: I sent to feedback@launchpad.net a few hours ago.05:50
* wgrant PMs05:51
stubOk. Nobody filtered that yet :)05:51
stubWe decided to target our active users when we messed up this time.05:51
wgrantAh, OK.05:51
lifelessanon90: well, I understand it. Clicking 'hide' makes it private. Setting it to garbage means even we can't do anything with it05:51
wgrantstub: How is it that my email addresses added over 4 years were all broken?05:51
stubBecause I 'fixed' it. Sorry.05:52
anon90some one can set it back to the default value in the table... I don't believe that is impossible05:52
anon90its probably not built into the admin interface05:52
wgrantI know that you killed them, but I was wondering how they qualified.05:52
anon90but it certainly CAN be done05:52
wgrantIt can be.05:52
wgrantI imagine an "UPDATE person SET latitude=NULL, longitude=NULL WHERE name='someuser'" would do it fine, assuming that the API fields aren't named differently.05:53
stubwgrant: Because there where unvalidated email addresses that where linked to the wrong account05:53
wgrantstub: Aha.05:53
wgrantstub: But that unvalidated email address is the only address that survived the Purge.05:53
stubwgrant: So it got picked up as corrupt data (correct) and incorrectly repaired.05:54
lifelessanon90: as said, a question asked by him on answers.launchpad.net/launchpad05:54
stubYour email address is still there - it got moved to a nice new account when you attempted to long in, which doesn't help you much.05:54
lifelessanon90: it should be him, because otherwise we're deleting someones location based on a third persons request05:55
lifelessanon90: and it will get deleted in the db05:55
wgrantlifeless: There's one filed about it by mrevell, and the LOSAs said they couldn't do it.05:55
lifelesswgrant: is that the correct one though? or someone elses?05:55
wgrantstub: I never tried to log in, actually. I didn't want to break things more.05:55
wgrantlifeless: It's the right one.05:55
lifelesswgrant: ok, I didn't see anon90 confirm that05:55
lifelesswgrant: (and I still don't see confirmation)05:56
anon90I am not him05:56
wgrantlifeless: 14:46:1305:56
stubwgrant: Ok. Not sure then. The repair might not have gone as well as I hoped.05:56
anon90but I am the one who set it05:56
anon90I don't know why the ticket in the support queue isn't from him05:56
anon90as I know he sent in a request himself05:56
wgrantanon90: He presumably emailed feedback@launchpad.net.05:56
lifelesswgrant: mhmm is hardly yes :)05:56
wgrantThe mrevell read that, and forwarded it.05:57
wgrantstub: Aha! I'm alive again!05:57
stubwgrant: Should be05:57
wgrantNow I just have to work out what bugs I need to read :(05:57
lifelessI'm not sure why we can't do it05:57
ajmitchwgrant: you may now enjoy the wonders of bug mail again05:58
anon90I'm confused...05:59
anon90Matthew Revel is clearly on the launchpad team. His request claims to (and I know accurately does) reflect my friend's wishes....06:00
wgrantlifeless: Is that enough? ^^06:01
wgrantYay, bugmail works again.06:02
anon90I'm also annoyed that it stores enough  metainformation that he knew I was the one who set it... but not enough that they have a user_verified field06:03
wgrantanon90: What do you mean?06:04
anon90somehow he knew I set it ... since I set my own location I don't know what he saw06:05
wgrantIt does know who set it, because it becomes uneditable by anybody but the user once the user sets it.06:05
anon90I just don't understand the policy. I think that field would be better used to hold a boolean for wether the user whose location it is approved it. a) it should be hidden as long as its false, but b) if it asks them if its correct and they say no... it should clear it06:06
anon90this is in fact a feature request that I suppose I could file06:07
anon90but at the present I really just want to get his location cleared to the point that he'll be happy06:07
wgrantI think you should file a bug asking that it never be settable by anybody but the user.06:07
anon90there already is one: https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad-registry/+bug/26219306:09
ubottuUbuntu bug 262193 in launchpad-registry "new location code allows anyone to set anyone else's location" [Low,Triaged]06:09
anon90so ... i don't know who anyone here is06:22
anon90can anyone here help me. and lifeless said that if my friend makes a request on answers. himself than it will be fixed. is there any reason I should believe him? (I don't mean to sound rude I am just exasperated here)06:23
anon90it also appears the privacy policy update of two days ago may have been in response to my friend's request06:30
anon90*sigh* ... I may up losing a friend over this bug06:31
anon90end up*06:31

anon90stub: you were mentioned as a master of DBs ... any chance you could help my friend out?06:53
CarlFK1anon90: regardless of what anyone does about this... you and your friend should have a talk about what is important in life06:54
CarlFK1things that I don't tolerate: making me bleed, costing me money, slandering my family.06:55
CarlFK1"reasonable human interaction" allows for allot of crap06:56
anon90we have an inherent problem in that he highly values his privacy and I don't especially... I'm just trying to learn to better respect others privacy. my current anonymous state was just supposed to aid with his anonymity.. though my admission on the link to the answer didn't help that06:57
spivanon90: yes, answers.launchpad.net/launchpad is the best place to file support requests like that06:58
stubanon90: What is the problem?06:58
stubAnd who is your friend?06:59
anon90I set a friend's location status. He doesn't want it set (at all). he emailed feedback, Matthew Revell made an answers post. The person their claims its impossible06:59
wgrantA LOSA claimed that it was impossible.07:00
wgrantWhich is clearly false.07:00
stubSo setting it to Mt. Everest and flipping the 'hide' flag isn't good enough? Weird.07:01
anon90stub: he doesn't want to set the location himself... he considers that to be giving an authoritative location. I don't frankly understand how his mind works on this07:02
stubI can trash stuff. It probably won't make his account explode. I still don't know who you are talking about though.07:02
stubYer - sometimes 'problems' like this are a great way of filtering our userbase.07:02
CarlFK1stub: I believe this is what you need:  (11:46:49 PM) wgrant: Is this the question? https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+question/7582407:03
anon90he has already said he doesn't actually *want* to be a user per se, but he is involved in some projects that keeps its bug-tracking on launchpad and wants the bug-emails.07:04
anon90he is very generally anti social networking07:04
anon90I am not so much ... which is why (if it was obvious who I was) you could see that I set my own location to the courtyard of my dorm complex07:05
stubLocation now nuked until he sets it himself and hides it or someone does it for him.07:05
wgrantanon90: Well, it /is/ fairly obvious who you are.07:05
anon90to people who have database access it is ... I don't know about the rest07:06
anon90unless there is some field I am missing07:06
anon90(or some other things that disclosing seems silly to do)07:06
anon90(I can think of some ways my location is quite tractable ... without using launchpad at all)07:06
anon90... or a bug report ... or something *hides under rocks*07:07
wgrantanon90: The bug report is one way.07:08
lifelessanon90: I know of no specific reason why it can't be done. However mthaddon who already commented may know of some.07:12
anon90stub did it07:12
lifelessanon90: so, I'm sorry, but I cannot assert that *it will be done*07:12
spivwgrant: maybe the /whois is just a red herring :P07:12
anon90I forget how IRC works *sigh*07:14
stubIts not so much it cannot be done, its just it can a) only be done by me and is b) pointless, because anyone can set the location until the user does it themself.07:14
wgrantanon90: You also joined with your real nick just before.07:15
wgrantstub: Er, LOSAs can't do that?07:15
anon90I know ... which was dumb07:15
anon90*but its not in the log*07:15
stubThey could if I wrote a policy for it, but it is... well... pointless.07:15
anon90also ... I realized a mutual acquaintance has been in the channel the whole time07:15
wgrantstub: Oh, I always assumed that they had full access.07:16
wgrantThat makes more sense now.07:16
stubwgrant: They do. They also don't like to go in and make random changes to the database, which can be dangerous as you found out recently ;)07:16
wgrantstub: Ah, that kind of policy.07:16
anon90in any case, I have done what I could do to make it better or worse... I shall now /quit ... and I shan't return unless I have better things to say07:18
wgrantHas the location issue been discussed with sabdfl lately?07:52
wgrant(thanks for reopening that, kfogel)07:52
kfogelwgrant: np.  It hasn't been discussed with sabdfl lately, but I think that's more a matter of time allocation than intention.07:52
kfogelwgrant: I think most of the solutions proposed in the bug are reasonable, fwiw.07:53

bigjoolshmmm I have a thought14:07
=== matsubara-afk is now known as matsubara
bigjoolsif the PPA owner or team has got someone from core-dev in it, does that make it more trusted?14:08
noodles775I don't think it necessarily does... they might be part of the team but play no role in the packaging etc.?14:08
=== Jorjao is now known as Ursinha
fta2won't work for me, i'm motu, but not core-dev14:08
bigjoolswhat about anyone who has upload privs to Ubuntu?14:09
fta2and most core-dev probably have no clue about how my packages work ;)14:09
noodles775yeah, I'm wary of trying to establish some kind of 'trust' in that sense...14:10
fta2maybe sort the list by karma14:10
noodles775ooh, there's a thought... do teams have karma though?14:10
noodles775or we could use team owner?14:10
fta2sum up the active members karma14:11
bigjoolsyes, that was part of the ranking criteria we want to implement in the real ranking14:11
noodles775but could we use raw karma until we have a better ranking system?14:11
maxbWhy should someone's translations/answers/... karma have any relevance to quality of their PPAs?14:11
noodles775(summing up could be expensive)14:12
fta2worth a try14:12
bigjoolsthat would nicely promote MOTU and core-devs over regular PPA users as you get more karma for uploading to Ubuntu14:12
bigjoolsmaxb: we can explicitly use Soyuz karma14:13
noodles775maxb: yes, it's not perfect - we can't have a perfect atm., but it's whether it will provide useful results lots of the time (as opposed to displaying semi-random ppas by last upload)14:13
noodles775bigjools: ooh, that would be great!14:13
nfilushello to all14:33
nfilusI need help in setup a translation for a project14:33
jtvnfilus: what's the problem?14:36
danilosnfilus: hi, perhaps I can help as well if jtv is busy ;)14:36
nfilusI was appointed as driver for a project and I want to help setup the translation in launchpad14:36
* jtv bows to danilo while leaving the room backwards14:37
nfilusthe help is not quite clear14:37
nfilusdo I (or the owner) have to create a translation group and several teams?14:37
danilosnfilus: yeah, what is it that's troubling you? (so we can improve help, and explain what are following steps to take)14:37
danilosnfilus: no, not at all... in general, that's only if you have very specific needs14:38
nfilusI'm missing a step-by-step howto14:38
danilosnfilus: for most purposes, you would use one of the existing groups, like launchpad-translators group14:38
nfilusdanilos: most help is targeted for end-users or subproject administrators14:39
danilosnfilus: there are many variations of allowed set-up, we'll definitely work on a "recommended" one and document it once we get there14:39
nfilusok, the project is centreon - a nagios frontend14:39
nfilusI don'T think it should be supervised by one of the existing teams14:39
nfilussorry, groups14:39
danilosnfilus: why not?14:39
nfilusit is too different?!14:40
nfiluswhat are the pros and cons for joining an existing group or creating a new one?14:40
danilosnfilus: having a translation group basically means having to run a complete translation project on your own, it's a lot of work just to communicate with all the people14:40
nfilusso a missing document would be: "what can an existing group (like launchpad-translators) do for you14:41
danilosnfilus: well, creating a new one: only admins can do it, it allows you to tightly control who gets to edit translations, and that's usually why you'd ask for it; using existing ones, there are already translators in them, they have a set of rules and policies for doing quality translations (not everybody can join), and represent established translation teams14:41
danilosnfilus: we are in the process of improving that documentation (actually, you might see some of it already if you are using edge.launchpad.net)14:42
danilosnfilus: also, launchpad-translations group has recently been started and has not really kicked off yet, though we are working on that14:42
nfilusdanilos: so a groups may (and should) consist of translators outside of the project?!14:42
danilosnfilus: well, that's the big benefit of Launchpad: you get more contributions from outside people, meaning more translations, meaning more prospective users who can understand your application14:43
nfilusdanilos: contributions from outside are ok, but outside administrators?14:44
danilosnfilus: if you don't like the idea of more translations and more users, it's a good idea to set up your own translation group (big projects who already have established translation communities like GNOME do that)14:44
danilosnfilus: they are only administering translation team structure; launchpad-translators is going to have only good translators14:45
danilosnfilus: who can do the translation and in what way also depends on privilege level you choose14:45
nfilusdanilos: so assume, I would assign an existing group to the project, then they will be responsible for the translation and invite/ack people and proposed translations, right?14:45
danilosnfilus: that's right, if you use Structured or Restricted privileges; if you use Open, anybody (even people from outside translation group) can translate anything14:46
danilosnfilus: if you go to a page like https://translations.edge.launchpad.net/limewire and click on "Open", you'll see privileges explained (that will show up on production servers shortly if it hasn't already; for it to show up on your project, you'll need to mark it as using translations)14:48
nfilusok, I just noticed on https://help.launchpad.net/Translations/Groups the link to https://help.launchpad.net/Translations/LaunchpadTranslators14:50
nfilusdanilos: this section should be described and empesized better as it gives the advantages of joining a group - here: launchpadtranslators14:51
danilosnfilus: right, I'll forward that input to our docs guy, mrevell14:52
danilosnfilus: we definitely want to spend more time on that group, so it becomes more and more useful14:52
mrevellnfilus: let me read up a little14:52
mrevellI've just added some pop-up help, that's on edge right now, that explains translation groups right on the page where you select one. I'll update the help wiki too14:53
mrevellthe /LaunchpadTranslators section is cared for by the LP translators group themselves14:53
mrevellI shall look at how better to give that some more prominence14:53
nfilusIn: "You can contact the Launchpad Translators Team for announcing things that affect all languages (ex. approaching release, major string changes, string freeze... etc.) or a specific language team for things affecting only one language. "14:53
nfilusthe term team is used in a different mannor as defined before14:54
nfilusdifferent way14:54
nfilusor is there a team and a group "launchpad translators"?14:55
nfilusoh, there are very few language teams in launchpad-translators15:02
nfilusdanilos: so in my case (I am the project driver, not the owner) I would have to ask the owner to assign the launchpad-translators as responsible group, choose a policy (like restricted or open) then I would have to join the "Launchpad German Translators" to translate the project15:06
nfilusdanilos: right?15:07
nfilusand by beeing in the team I may also translate strings from all the other projects from launchpad-translators group?15:08
danilosnfilus: right; if you make it structured, for languages which have no teams it'll be just as if it's completely open15:10
danilosnfilus: otherwise, in structured, people can only make suggestions if they are not in a team, and team members have to approve them15:11
nfilusall the informations are there, but in different places ...15:12
nfilusthank you very much15:14
danilosnfilus: np, sorry for it being so confusing15:18
nfilusdanilos: no problem, I hope my difficulties and the feedback will help improving it15:19
nfilusdanilos: if we choose launchpad translators as the group - can we assign individual language teams?15:20
nfilusdanilos: for example: the project is done in france, but still there is no french team in the group15:20
danilosnfilus: no, but if there's someone willing to lead a French launchpad translators team by the standards of launchpad translators group (i.e. do not make a team open, have some initial documentation, and do not approve anybody into a team), then we can assign it to them15:21
nfilusah, ok ... I don'T think there are enough ressources :)15:23
dpmnfilus: you can try to contact the French Ubuntu translators to create a Launchpad translators group, since they've got experience and follow the standards danilos was mentioning. Or you can let me know whether I can assist you contacting them, I'll be glad to help -> https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-l10n-fr15:29
nfilusthanks for the offer - I will pass it to the french guys (I can already join the german group :) )15:31

pisecxHi. I was testing launchpad functionality and added two users to a "team". Is it possible to delete them? I have found deactivate and they are listed in "former members" list.18:30
=== Kangarooo1 is now known as Kangarooo
matsubarapisecx, if they're in the former members list means they don't belong to the team anymore18:52
matsubarait's the same thing as deleting them18:53

pisecxbut they a listed )18:53
pisecxall other people of world are not listed in those list )18:53
matsubarawell, they're listed because they once were added to the team but then removed. why is that a problem?18:57

devanandaHi all ... is there a way to accelerate bzr push to lp? I'm barely getting 8KB/s19:06
ApeIs it possible to cancel builds on Launchpad PPA (for resource saving etc.)? I updated my package and it still wants to compile the old version (that had a bad error, I quickly fixed). I think I should cancel the old packages, because they are not needed at all.19:33
alkisgWhat do I have to do to delete an empty PPA that we mistakenly created for my team? File a question in soyuz? https://launchpad.net/~linux.sch.gr/+archive/ppa19:38
zsquarepluscthe idea of the milestone column in the list of bugs is? the milestone where the fix should be included, or where the error occurred?19:43
maxbApe: Once you've uploaded a new package, builds that have not yet started will be cancelled when they would otherwise start. Builds that have already started cannot be cancelled without admin intervention, so it's usually only worthwhile if the build would take many hours19:43
maxbalkisg: Correct, file a question19:44
maxbzsquareplusc: Milestones are for future planning of when developers think they need to aim to fix a bug by19:46
zsquarepluscmaxb: ok19:54
zsquareplusci whish that this would be more clear when looking at the web page. because a lot of bug trackers allow you to set where the bug was found19:55
maxbIt is a feature that is notably missing in Launchpad20:00

kangarooohow to put something on wish list? how to convert bug to wish?23:22
zsquarepluscyes the launchpad server checks that too. but maybe that wasn't always the case back when they wrote that software. it also saves resources on the server when the error is caught earlier23:22
zsquareplusckangarooo: you mean changing the bug importance to "whishlist"?23:24
zsquarepluscwhen you open a bug there are small down arrows besides "importance" which when you click, you get an interface to change that. granted you have the permissions on that project/bug23:25
