bdmurraynigel_nb: yes00:47
nigel_nbbdmurray, I talked to hggdh earlier... about getting a few sessions on how to triage, now that bug squad has moved to a closed team00:47
nigel_nbbdmurray, can you teach/ask someone to teach and schedule them ?00:49
bdmurraynigel_nb: is there a particular time / date that many students will be available?00:51
nigel_nbbdmurray, I was hoping we have it at 3 times on 3 dates so that more people from across TZs can participate00:51
nigel_nbbut otherwise, scheduling is up to the instructor00:51
nigel_nbwe can advertise it heavily enough to get people to join us to learn...00:52
bdmurrayI'd prefer to ensure there are a sufficient number of students to warrant a class before just scheduling 1 or 301:00
nigel_nbbdmurray, you want me to check on mail list for interest?01:01
bdmurraynigel_nb: that'd be great!01:01

bcurtiswxnigel_nb: pong03:14
nigel_nbbcurtiswx, Replying to the email ;) I know we have mentorship.  But just wanted to offer a lot of interested contributors a session :)03:14
bcurtiswxnigel_nb: not knocking down your idea.  I'm sure others will speak up if they feel differently, If you really wanted to do this you'd have to find a willing teacher and enough participants to make it worthwhile03:16
hggdhddecator: done. I also marked it Triaged, since you linked the upstream bug. Thank you for your work there!03:16
ddecatorhggdh, thanks, i appreciate it =)03:16
nigel_nbbcurtiswx, actually I asked bdmurray__, he wanted to know if there is an interest in participation03:16
bcurtiswxmrburns: hows things going with the reading?03:16
nigel_nbbcurtiswx, that was the point of the email :)03:16
bcurtiswxnigel_nb: yup i saw.  I guess my interpretation of the mentorship was for this purpose.  I've been wrong plenty of times before03:17
nigel_nbhehe :)03:17
=== kermiac_ is now known as kermiac
mrburnsalright i am a little confused by what "new" means cause i see some bugs that are kind of old but yet will marked as "new"03:23
nigel_nbmrburns, new = not triaged03:24
nigel_nbmrburns, unless a bug is reproducible, it wont move to confirmed03:25
bcurtiswxmrburns: yeah he's right.  New is the default state given to all bugs... it has to be seen by a triager before it will get changed03:27
mrburnsso is that what most of you do look at the bug and see if you can reproduce it03:29
bcurtiswxmrburns: not exactly....03:30
bcurtiswxmrburns: the basic idea of triage is to look at a bug and see if the bug report has the basic requirements needed to be looked at by a dev.03:31
bcurtiswx1) the steps to reproduce the problem03:32
bcurtiswx2)if its a crash there's debugging information you should gather from the reporter03:33
bcurtiswx3) ubuntu version03:33
bcurtiswxif the reporter is using Karmic and past you can have them type "apport-collect <bugnumber>" in their terminal and it will gather the necessary information for the bug from their computer03:34
bcurtiswxthey may need to install a package, but it informs them after they type that command on what they need to do03:34
mrburnsoh interesting i didn't know you could do that03:35
bcurtiswxbut in the apport-collect case the steps to reproduce the problem aren't taken from their computer :P03:36
bcurtiswxso you'll still need that most of the time03:36
bcurtiswxmrburns: there are two places a bug is going to need to go, once it has all of the information that I have listed above.03:39
bcurtiswxif the package involved is developed upstream (this being, debian, openoffice, mozilla, [listed at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream]) it need to be forwarded upstream03:40
bcurtiswxif the package is specific to ubuntu it can be marked as triaged as it's already reported against the ubuntu package03:41
bcurtiswxmrburns: are you ready to tackle a bug together?03:43
mrburnsso if a bug is in a package like debian, openoffice forwarding upstreams passes the bug onto developers that work on specific packages like debian, openoffice, etc03:43
mrburnsyeah sure03:43
kermiachi bcurtiswx I had a look at the links regarding membership in your reply to the mailing list. The list seems to have grown a lot since I first looked at it a cpl of months ago.03:43
kermiacI have now added my name to the wiki, is there anything else i need to do?03:44
bcurtiswxkermiac: do you mean mentorship?03:44

ubot4Launchpad bug 517651 in empathy (Ubuntu) "Could not connect after I changed all my accounts (affects: 1)" [Undecided,New]03:44
bcurtiswxmrburns: the first thing you want to look for in a bug is that it has the correct package assigned to it.  What do you think?03:45
kermiacok, done. Thanks03:45
bcurtiswxkermiac: you are welcome03:45
mrburnsis that empathy
bcurtiswxmrburns: you want to read through the description to make sure they aren't talking about a different package than the one they reported against.. (reporters can get packages mixed up)03:48
bcurtiswxit's ok if this take a while to get used to.  If you question it at all, don't hesitate to bug someone in this room03:49
bcurtiswxor e-mail me if you aren't on IRC03:49
nigel_nbbcurtiswx, you just conducted a learning session right here :)03:50
mrburnsoh so make sure that the bug is related to their description of the problem03:50
bcurtiswxmrburns: yup.  Next you want to make sure that the bug has all the information it needs to be handed off to developers.  Look through my stufff above and let me know if you believe it has all of the information03:51
bcurtiswxnigel_nb: yup, you wish for more of a session in a group format, instead of individualized like the mentorship offers03:52
nigel_nbbcurtiswx, exactly!03:52
nigel_nbless strain on mentors I'd say03:53
ddecatori like that idea. i have a mentor, but him and i operate at different times so it's difficult for him to help me out03:53
nigel_nb(I myself am being mentored)03:53
hggdhdon't you say, nigel_nb :-)03:54
nigel_nbhggdh, hehe :)03:54
ddecatorbtw, how is the mentorship supposed to work? do mentors walk people through bugs or are they more for just answering questions?03:55
hggdhbcurtiswx: the idea has merit -- it should be as simple as possible, mostly a Q&A-type03:55
bcurtiswxhggdh: i wasn't trying to shoot down the idea, i agree it has merit03:55
hggdhddecator: it can work both ways. Usually we show you the ropes, and answer questions03:55
mrburnsbcurtiswx: i would say yes 1) i think i could reproduce it with the given information 2) there seems to be debugging information like architecture, xsessionerrors, etc 3) ubuntu 9.1003:55
hggdhbcurtiswx: I know, I follow you03:56
hggdhddecator: and correct your mistakes ;-)03:56
hggdhof course, 'your' does not mean you personally, but all the mentees03:56
ddecatorhggdh, haha, fair enough. pedro is my mentor but he's on early in the morning (my time) and i'm always on at night so we haven't been able to talk on irc, so i wasn't sure what i was supposed to be doing...i can get up earlier to talk to him, but is talking to a mentor on irc really any more beneficial than asking this channel as a whole for advice?03:57
bcurtiswxmrburns: ok, agreed.  The next step is to give it an importance.  http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Importance lists what each importance means.. which do you think applies?03:58
hggdhit is pretty much the same, all in all. Another thing the mentor is expected to do is follow your bug work -- can can be done quite easily, by looking at the email generated when you change a bug03:59
ddecatorah, simple enough...thanks hggdh =)03:59
hggdhddecator: and, usually, we would rather answer the questions in this channel -- so that all other lurking may benefit03:59
mrburnsbcurtiswx: i would say low04:00
ddecatorgood point...i'm following bcurtiswx right now to see if i learn anything, haha04:00
bcurtiswxddecator: what do you think the importance should be?04:01
ddecatorbcurtiswx, that's difficult...i'm leaning towards medium since it seems to be a "moderate impact on a core application" (since empathy is now a default app)04:03
bcurtiswxddecator: " So I deleted all my accounts in empathy and reimported the accounts from pidgin.  And what should I say. Now I could connect to my accounts with empathy again."04:04
ddecatorbcurtiswx, so does the workaround make it low? i'm not sure it's "easy" since you have to launch another app, adjust the settings there, then import them again...04:05
bcurtiswxmrburns: whats your reasoning for low?04:05
mrburnsbcurtiswx: there is a work around (use pidgin), it doesn't not effect hardware components, not a new feature04:12
bcurtiswxmrburns, ddecator: a good rule of thumb is that if you are unsure about the status of a bug, it's safe to set it at medium.  In this case, since we're not 100% sure, and we're tied between medium and low.  We'll set it at medium.. so go ahead and do that mrburns04:15
nigel_nbum, bug squad can set priority?04:16
ddecatorno we can't ;)04:16
bcurtiswxddecator made a good point, it is a core ubuntu app so medium applies04:16
bcurtiswxddecator, nigel_nb: it's been a while, i couldn't remember04:17
ddecatorno problem bcurtiswx04:17
bcurtiswxok, so we've decided it's medium04:17
ddecatoronce we're in bugcontrol we can04:17
bcurtiswxmrburns: the last step would be what?04:17
mrburnsbcurtiswx: assign it to a developer04:19
bcurtiswxmrburns: we don't ever assign bugs as a triager.. but we have to make sure the bug gets in the right hands.. like I stated earlier.  if the package is maintained not in ubuntu it needs to get forwarded, otherwise you're done and you can mark it as triaged04:20
mrburnsbcurtiswx: how do we tell if it is maintained in ubuntu04:22
bcurtiswxtype apt-cache show empathy in terminal04:22
bcurtiswxread through the output and let me know04:22
ddecatorsee, now i learned a new command...04:23
mrburnsbcurtiswx: Maintainer: Ubuntu Core Developers04:23
bcurtiswxmrburns: nope04:24
bcurtiswxevery package provided in ubuntu has Maintainer: Ubuntu Core Developers04:24
hggdhyes... "Original-maintainer" is more important ;-)04:24
hggdhbut, even then, this may not point to the real upstream04:25
ddecatorsuch as if the "section" suggests something different?04:25
bcurtiswxhggdh: is there a better way to see which packaged need to be pushed upstream?04:25
hggdhyou can look at the "Homepage" -- this is usually where upstream can be located04:26
hggdhin this case, as a general rule, all Gnome apps are upstreamed to Gnome04:27
bcurtiswxmrburns, ddecator: this is a hard task to learn at first.  Once you work with it for a while you'll understand it better.. once again ask in here if in doubt04:27
hggdhbut sometimes it is really difficult to find where is the upstream04:28
mrburnsso in this case it is gnome04:28
bcurtiswxmrburns: correct04:28
ddecatori'm kind of starting to figure it out...i've done mostly work with packages that i know are upstream or not04:28
hggdhin these cases, getting the source package may help: (1) there should be a file called ./debian/watch, where the source tarball can be picked; (2) look at the NEWS, README, and other files in the source04:29
bcurtiswxmrburns: now there are two ways you can get this pushed upstream.. if you are going through squashing a lot of bugs you can leave a stock reply [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Responses] asking the user to take care of it..04:30
bcurtiswxor you can send it upstream yourself04:30
ddecatorthe latter teaches more =)04:31
hggdhyes. But there is more to upstreaming...04:31
bcurtiswxmrburns: "https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Responses#A bug that should be handled upstream" in specific04:31
bcurtiswxmrburns: upstreaming is a lesson in itself and will save for another day04:32
hggdhif you are going to start upstreaming to a particular package -- subscribe to their mailing list; if they are in an IRC channel, get to it; find out *how* they operate, and try to give them what they like to have on their bugs04:32
bcurtiswxmrburns: for now, set the bug to incomplete and leave the reply "Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Upstream/GNOME. If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or t04:33
bcurtiswxhe link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about its status. Thanks in advance."04:33
ddecatorbut upstreaming is a good lesson to learn because it is really appreciated04:34
hggdhit is not only upstreaming that is important, but doing it *right*. And _right_ is how upstream sees it, not necessarily like us see it04:34
ddecatoralso, did we ever check for a duplicate?04:34
bcurtiswxddecator: not yet.. it's difficult finding dups.. was gonna save that for another day04:35
ddecatorok, just wanted to mention it04:35
bcurtiswxmrburns: the true "first" thing that you want to do is check for a duplicate.04:36
mrburnsok yeah i guess that would make sense04:36
bcurtiswxmrburns: for a "hw assignment" I think you should pick 3 bugs that you want.  Then work through the bugs like we did tonight.  Give me an e-mail with links to the three bugs and the different things that you would do to them.  Sound fair?04:39
nigel_nbhggdh, a little help04:39
bcurtiswxddecator:  who is your mentor?04:39
mrburnsyeah sounds good04:39
ddecatorbcurtiswx, pedro04:40

ddecatorbcurtiswx, i've already started work on 4 bugs today and triaged one, but ok haha04:41
bcurtiswxnigel_nb: awesome :D04:41
nigel_nbbcurtiswx, I just branched out to small-term patching and packaging04:42
bcurtiswxddecator: then pick 3 bugs that you are less comfortable with04:42
hggdhnigel_nb: what can I do for you?04:42
mrburnsbcurtiswx: how did you find that bug?  just search for "new" or pick something a random04:42

mrburnsbcurtiswx: ok sounds good04:48
hggdhnigel_nb: I think the OP has some valid points04:48
nigel_nbhggdh, the priority to low is wrong? (I donno x team's rules)04:49
bcurtiswxmrburns: one major thing I forgot.. it's mandatory that all bugs you triage you subscribe to.. otherwise you won't get e-mails when someone replies to a bug04:50
nigel_nbhggdh, while he does have some right points, the comments were for setting priority to low04:50
hggdhnigel_nb: it sounds correct -- one user affected (even if the OP does not agree)04:50
hggdhbut the other points are correct. The OP kept on repeating ignorance, and pretty much all suggestions were badly worded in terms of what to do (expecting deep knowledge)04:52

qensevalid point :)11:15
nigel_nbI'm looking to more like a group of people who can help with teaching in turns11:15

vishqense: hi.. Bug #488041 , you didnt assign to ubiquity , any reason for not assigning after mentioning?13:19
ubot4Launchpad bug 488041 in ubuntu (and 1 other project) "multilanguage keyboard layout (affects: 2)" [Wishlist,Confirmed] https://launchpad.net/bugs/48804113:19
qensevish: Ah, thank you. I must have forgotten about that.13:19
qensefixed now13:20
vishqense: i thought so :) but just wanted to make sure..13:20
nigel_nbqense, that needs to be brainstormed?13:21
qensenigel_nb: What needs to be brainstormed?13:21
nigel_nbthe ubiquity bug13:21
nigel_nbpretty big change for wishlist..isn't it?13:22
qenseMaybe, but it does hinder users, so I reckoned it would be worth the bug report.13:22
nigel_nbum, just wanted to know the process13:25
nigel_nbqense, speaking of which, there needs to be a process for Questions => bugs13:25
nigel_nbwhen we convert them, it shows up as a bug the converter reported13:25
qensenigel_nb: Isn't there already such a thing?13:25
nigel_nbso when I confirm it, it looks as though I reported and confirmed a bug13:26
qensenigel_nb: That doesn't matter. If you name the Question in the bug description it's ok.13:26
qenseWe're not that rigid. ;)13:26
nigel_nbah :)13:26
nigel_nbqense, btw, I loved your membership meeting13:26
nigel_nblol, +1 before you even had to introduce yourself13:27
qensenigel_nb: Yeah, that was quite something. ;) It was fun.13:27
nigel_nbnow I know why they tell people to wait before applying13:27
qenseYeah, of the ten people who had applied only three got accepted.13:28
qenseThat's something I wanted to prevent to happen to me, so I waited.13:28
nigel_nbI orignally wanted to wait a year, you've inspired me to push longer13:29
nigel_nbqense, btw, do u sign up for new IDS on bug upstream trackers after becoming a member?13:30
qensenigel_nb: I'm inspirational!13:30
qensenigel_nb: You mean changing your mail address?13:30
nigel_nbqense, yes you are13:31
nigel_nbqense, yeah13:31
qenseI'd reckon they just change their mail address.13:31
qenseWhich is encouraged, btw. That way upstream knows Ubuntu is contributing and they know you're a Member and thus (more) thrustworthy.13:32
nigel_nbhm :)13:34
bhuviwhen i disble bluetooth or wifi by pressing Fn+F5 in my lenovo notebook while using vista ,after rebooting into ubuntu i cannot enable them is there any way to enable it back?16:22
qensebhuvi: That would be worth a bug report. However, we aren't a support channel, so for an immediate solution I would advise you to go to #ubuntu or #ubuntu-{CountryCode}. We can help you with reporting a bug, though.16:23
WeatherGodI am currently dealing with a bug report, and it seems like the issue might be related to gvfs18:21
WeatherGodany tips on how to collect more information on it?18:21
qenseWeatherGod: Did you have a look at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Debugging ?18:23
WeatherGodnot lately...18:23
* WeatherGod takes a look18:23
qensethat's the right url18:23
WeatherGodhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingRemovableDevices seems out of date...18:26
WeatherGodit still talks about hal18:26
WeatherGodand DebuggingProcedures seems to have a dead link to DebuggingGNOMESystemTools18:28
qenseyes, it could indeed use some updates18:30
rmunnI haven't been following kernel/driver development recently... what's hal been replaced with?18:33
qenseand Udev18:33
qenseFully correct would be: devicekit-disks, devicekit-power and udev.18:34
WeatherGodrmunn, take a look at the Halsectomy page18:34
qensealthough the first two were renamed to udisk and upower iirc18:34
WeatherGodoh, have they been renamed?18:34
rmunnWeatherGod, Thanks, reading now18:35
WeatherGodcan anyone tell me what is it that gvfs does that automount can't do?18:38
qenseWeatherGod: like the name says: handling virtual filesystems18:39
qenseand userspace stuff like network:/// and trash:///18:39
rmunnAnyone else having trouble reaching Launchpad right now? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ is timing out for me, and I don't think it's my network connection.18:40
WeatherGodnope, working fine for me18:40
WeatherGodqense, so it isn't responsible for automounting USB keys and CDs?18:41
rmunnI'll try disabling redirection to the edge server as the timeout page suggests, it's probably just the edge server that's timing out then.18:41
qenseno, that's devicekit-disks18:41
qenseyes, probably18:41
WeatherGodso, udev loads the drivers... and devicekit-disks is the userland stuff?18:42
qenseyes, that's how it works18:43
WeatherGodok, and gvfs sets up url protocols then?18:43
qenseI think gvfs can mount as well, but I think it only does so on request.18:44
jpdsrmunn: Seems to be only the bugs.lp.net page that's affected.18:46
WeatherGodI would guess it would be like autofs in the sense that when someone makes a request it would figure out what needs to be mounted, maybe18:46
rmunnI still can't get through to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ even when I SOCKS-proxy my request through to a host on a different network... I'll report my bug later.18:46
rmunnjpds, Ah, so it's not just me then.18:46
jpdsrmunn: I can access bug reports though just fine.18:46
WeatherGodI can't imagine that it would actually do any system mountings18:46
rmunnjpds, Yeah, me too -- when I tried https://bugs.launchpad.net/evince/+bugs I got right through. Okay, I can work with this.18:47
qenseWeatherGod: I'm not that familiar with disks and mounting and stuff, so I can't give you a decisive answer.18:48
rmunnhttps://bugs.launchpad.net/ times out with error ID OOPS-1498O1885 by the way, if any LP admins are watching this channel.18:49
rmunnNo, wait, it's a different error ID each time... not useful to report here. Sorry.18:50
jpdsrmunn: OOPS IDs are unique and incremented, your OOPS matches the timeout error mine has.18:50
rmunnjpds, If you want the other OOPS IDs I got I can give them to you, but they're almost certainly the exact same thing each time.18:52
jpdsYeah, probably are.18:52
WeatherGodqense, that's ok... it is better to not confuse me with incorrect information18:55
WeatherGodI did manage to find another bug report in the gvfs package that reported a similar symptom18:56
arandhttps://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/510571 << How would I go about taking this upstream?21:20

jpdsarand: File a bug on bugzilla.kernel.org ?21:22
arandjpds: Yes, but is there a good list of things to include on the report, or could I simply link it to this one for all info?21:24
jpdsarand: A summary of the bug and a link would be good.21:24
mrandarand: I wouldn't jump that far quite yet... since kernel is custom built by ubuntu, something like that that is already receiving attention is likely to be handled by the kernel team itself.21:26
arandmrand: I did try the upstream kernel which failed as well...21:27
mrandarand: super!  In that case, yes, carry on!21:27
charlie-tcaAbout that bug, we are using the -12 kernel now21:28
arandYea, And I I fail on booting the liveCD as well, unless removing acpi from the virtualbox config, all kernels past 10 seems to be affected.21:29
charlie-tcaI can install in vbox using the alternate image, not the liveCD21:30
charlie-tcaMaybe that is the desktop cd failing?21:30
charlie-tcaI am also running lucid as a work machine, on hardware, using the -1221:30
ddecatorcan someone please set bug 516154 as "low"? (low because it is an uncommon configuration with an easy work around) and triaged if everything looks good to you (i sent it upstream and updated the title and description)21:39

mrandddecator: good job on that one.  I went ahead and marked it as medium.  I'm not sure how uncommon it is... and when viewed from a certain way, could be viewed as semi-security related (i.e. if you want or need to run without cookies).21:43
ddecatormrand, very true, i was kind of caught between the two so i probably should have gone with medium to be safe. i appreciate the help21:44

qensehggdh: Spam bots have left MSN for IRC! Do you want to get a free iPhone as well?21:46
hggdhwow! free iPhone?? Wow, wow. May I humbly ask what one does with an iPhone? ;-)21:46
hggdhqense: are we getting to be +r also?21:47
qensehggdh: I wouldn't know. What does +r do with your IRC channel?21:48
hggdhrequires you to be registered21:48
qenseShouldn't the spamattacks be stopped now FreeNode has upgraded its server?21:48
hggdhnot really, and not necessarily. Depends on the type of attack. A channel that allows anyone in is more vulnerable. And a smart bot will post single messages, instead of bulk delivery21:49
qensehggdh: I hope the bullies have had enough from teasing FreeNode now then.21:51
hggdhalthough yesterday I was being queried by one of the freenode boots (guess I behaved like a bot)21:51
qenseyou? how could they possibly think you are a bot?21:52
arandmrand: It should be a simple matter of testing on the latest kernel here right?: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/21:52
hggdhqense: I wish I knew. But I kept being hit by CTCP queries until I /quit and returned21:53
hggdhbut I *have* been accused of being a bot on internet chess21:53
qensemaybe you should CTCP back next time.21:53
mrandarand: I believe so.   I'll bet there is a PPA somewhere as well if you'd prefer that.21:54
mranddaughter is dragging me away... bbl21:54
qensehggdh: When was it? The year is important for it being either a compliment or an insult.21:54
hggdhqense: some two years ago22:01
qensein that case it was already a compliment. You must be good!22:01
hggdhheh. No I am not, not nowadays. I was good when I was younger, then I completely stopped22:01
hggdhqense: BTW I am still thinking on your proposal re. upstreaming22:03
qensehggdh: Do you think it makes any sense?22:03
arandHow would I tell which mainline version the -10 and -11 kernels for Lucid are based on?22:03
hggdhqense: I think there is something there -- which is to say, makes sense. I am not sure if this is the best approach. I have been flip-flopping on it, and still have to understand why I like the idea, and why I do not, both at the same time22:05
qenseThe greatest advantage of it is that other people can search for bugs that are ready to be forwarded upstream. It all fits very nicely into my idea of AdoptionTeams.22:06
BUGabundoFYI plymouth is broken in Lucid. thanks22:06
hggdhI agree there. But there are some packages where you don't really open an upstream bug (e.g., coreutils, where you *usually* send an email)22:07
hggdhBUGabundo: yes. And you lose your VTs, among other things22:07
qenseBUGabundo: I think there was a bug for that already, I forgot what number.22:07
qensehggdh: That's indeed the problem: not all upstreams have the same 'interface'.22:08
BUGabundoqense: bug 518058 my very own22:08

qenseMy GDM just freezes when I press Enter22:08
hggdhindeed, and this is something I have been trying to stress: for one to successfully upstream bugs, one must understand how upstream works22:09
BUGabundoqense: that too22:09
qenseBUGabundo: clicking works here, though22:09
BUGabundoor click22:09
BUGabundoor space22:09
qensehggdh: The thing is that by making people open empty upstream bug tasks, other people that are aware of how that specific upstream works can do the forwarding.22:09
qenseI think there even was/is a specific field for the upstream bug e-mail address.22:09
qenseAlthough I'm not sure if the maintainer of coreutils would like to be spammed with users having a party with the bug statuses.22:10
hggdhyes for both points. But I am not sure how the email interface works22:10
qenseneither am I22:10
hggdhupstream coreutils is amazingly helpful, but better limit the spam, yes22:10
hggdhsigh. I should have expected 3 Gulden Draaks to sort of make me dizzy22:11
qensehggdh: Didn't you go to FOSDEM?22:13
hggdhqense: no, busy on a contract...22:13
qenseAh, I thought you might because of the beer you mentioned.22:14
qenseGolden Dragon, not an animal you'd expect in Flanders.22:14
hggdh:-). Amazingly good flemish beer, is it not?22:14
qenseI couldn't tell, I'm a teetotal. :D22:15
hggdhwell, one has to agree that at the bare least Flanders have good beers22:15
hggdh(better, in general, than the ones I got in the Netherlands)22:16
qenseI have been told they have indeed.22:16
qensehggdh: We're good at selling stuff, not as good in making fine food. Although they ought to be at least better than the American rip-off of Budweiser.22:17
qensewhich is now Belgian as well, btw22:17
hggdhLOL. Yes (or Brazilian?)22:17
qenseNo, InBev22:17
hggdhambev, inbev, all the same except for one letter22:18
qenseAmericans were very angry that this symbol of the US(Budweiser is a place in Czech, they still make Budweiser there) was bought by a European company.22:18
hggdhyes, I know. I live in the US, after all. And they just don't understand the difference between an US budweiser and a Czeck one22:19
qensethat's a bug! Report it. (So, we're back On Topic!)22:19
hggdhbut, then, the original name of the budweiser makers is/was anheuser-bush (I *think*)22:20
* hggdh goes on reporting such bug22:20
qenseyes, and that whole company was bought by the Belgian company22:21
qenseBud Light failed terribly in Europe, btw22:21
qenseI think it actually never reached most supermarket shelves22:21
hggdhnot surprised. OTOH, there's Sam Adams, a *very* good American beer. Same level as most of the best EU beers22:22

kklimondaqense, do you have a screenshot? I'd like to see how have you merged both menus from notification icon22:27
chrisccoulsonqense - i wouldn't worry about creating a merge request though, as i'm not too sure who gets the notification mails for those22:27
chrisccoulsonyou're probably better off pinging someone on IRC ;)22:27
qensekklimonda: No screenshot yet, I'm still compiling. But what two menus? I see just one in the code.22:27
kklimondaqense, erm.. I need more sleep22:28
qensechrisccoulson: Probably yes, but if we want to start using distributed development seriously we should start using it.22:28
qensekklimonda: :)22:28
kklimondaqense, oh, right - have you added a "show/hide window" to the menu? that was the right question!22:28
kklimondabut I guess DX team should take a look at that22:29
qensekklimonda: ah, well fortunately that entry was already there, so I needn't to add that.22:29
kklimondaimo there is some room for improvement (i.e. some things to delete)22:29
qenseThey even already have a mechnism for hiding the icon!22:29
qenseI could just replace the function that creates the thing and connect the right things here and there and it was done.22:29
qenseI like such developers.22:31
=== David-T is now known as Guest79354
kklimondaoh well, when I saw this bug first time I've had some concern about moving the menu over to the indicator applications without changes.. but I can't remember what was that :/22:31
