micahgbut prism seems to exhibit the same issue02:50
persialamont: On an unrelated note, do you happen to know when the ia64 and hppa ports were first introduced on ports.ubuntu.com?02:51
lamontia64: warty02:52
lamontor maybe hoary02:52
lamontthough ISTR it was live for warty - thanks to some incredible effort by Thibaut02:53
persiaI put warty in the code I used, so I think I'll leave it there in case you remember correctly (not that I expect anyone is actually planning an upgrade from a warty install any time soon)02:54
lamonthppa/sparc showed up in hoary, but didn't get into the DC until we got hardware in - ISTR hppa was there for breezy/dapper (or not in dapper - don't recall when LP started building everything), and then back in feisty IIRC02:54
persiaWas sparc on p.u.c for hoary?  I know it was on archive by dapper.02:55
lamontamusingly, I just nuked the hoary archive of hppa off of people.u.c within the last 9 months or so - finally noticed it was chewing up space02:55
lamontwe bootstrapped both architectures together, using hoary02:55
lamontbut not sure when sparc actually landed in the archive - hppa was way late landing for hoary, so it came in with breezy02:55
lamontand even that was broken when we shifted to LP02:56
=== Guest61212 is now known as NCommander
lamontand on that note, I think it's time for me to sleep02:57
persiaRight.  Seems like I do have to adjust the code after all.  Do you know if there exists an authoritative resource, or is it all just left in human memory now?02:57
persialamont: tell me about your fpc issue first :)02:57
lamontold-releases.ubuntu.com comes to mind...02:57
lamontpersia: with the best understanding of which packages to grab from sid, it was FTBFS - I wasn't actually the one flying that, so not sure what the actual error was.02:58
persiaDoesn't differentiate ports vs. archive, but I'll take a look there.  Thanks.02:58
lamonta clearer "install the following packages from sid and it _WILL_ build from source" would be wonderful02:58
persiaI'll retry, and go chase Ng then.  Do you have a preferred format, or would another entry like "Installing fp-compiler, fp-units-base, fp-utils, and fp-units-rtl from Debian sid on a lucid machine permitted this build" work.02:59
lamontI have dapper/sparc and {warty-dapper}/powerpc as non-ports, ia64 and hppa as ports regardless of release02:59
lamontbonus points if you include version numbers03:00
persiaI'll do that.  Thanks.  Have a good night.03:00
lamontsee also bzr brnach lp:~lamont/launchpad-buildd/chroot-scripts03:01
persiaI also have edgy powerpc as non-port, and edgy/feisty/gutsy sparc.03:01
persiaOh excellent!03:01
lamontah, well... to be fair, that script kinda went lalalalala DO NOT CARE when it comes to edgy-gutsy03:01
lamontcorrections welcome03:01
lamontpersia: and yeah, Ng was pilot testing my instructions for doing the bootstrap, so he would be the right one to push on03:03
persiaAssuming it makes sense to me, I'll send a patch.  I'm hoping to have both python-apt and mk-sbuild be correct.03:03
persiaAnd I'll probably want to try to encourage you to use mk-sbuild for future chroot scripts :)03:03
lamontthat code is how I build lp and non-lp chroots, fwiw03:03
persia(assuming I can bring it to feature parity)03:04
lamontpretty sure you don't want to grow all the limbs that scriptage has03:04
lamontno sane coder would03:04
lamontbut yeah, I'd definitely be interested03:04
persiaBut I do want to have a tool in-archive that lets developers mimic the buildd chroots for local builds, so ... :)03:04
lamontthat's part of why I published the branch...03:05
lamontdidn't feel up to packaging it though03:05
persiaOh my!  That is a lot of limbs.03:05
lamontyes, it very certainly is03:05
lamontthe debian and xdebian swtiches are probably the most bizarre03:06
wgrantpersia: Why not grab the real buildd chroots for local builds?03:06
lamontwgrant: sometimes it's quicker to just build new ones based on a local mirror03:07
persiawgrant: I don't know how.  Is there a stable way to pull them from an API and shove them somewhere for sbuild to eat?03:07
* lamont sleeps03:07
wgrantpersia: Retrieving them from LP was convoluted until a week ago, when I exported the URL on the API. The URL to the current tarball is now available at https://launchpad.net/api/devel/ubuntu/lucid/i386/chroot_url03:08
persiawgrant: I get an error loading that page.03:09
persiaerror on line 1 at column 1: Document is empty03:09
wgrantpersia: Yeah, LP for some reason serves it as XHTML when it's actually plain text.03:09
wgrantView the source.03:09
wgrantAlthough I guess that tarball will have internal hosts in sources.list, and stock sbuild won't override them, so it's not that easy.03:09
persiaOh excellent.  So I should be able to construct a script that discovers the current URL, pulls it, unpacks/repacks/renames as needed for the local build tool, etc. ?03:10
wgrantPreviously you had to dig through build logs and use an undocumented librarian search feature to get the real tarball.03:10
persiaThat's fine.  It oughtn't be hard to use some sane defaults.  I only wish pbuilder-dist and mk-sbuild were written in the same language: it makes it easier for them to share code.03:11
wgrantAnd I've had to do that a few times in the past, so I thought I'd make it easy.03:11
persiaI know we've had lots of issues in the past with stuff building fine locally and not in LP, and being able to do local tests to hunt down why helps.03:11
persiaMind you, we do have to make in-distro schroot/sbuild have the necessary features for them to be useful/used on the buildds, but that's presumably less painful.03:12
wgrantAnd a while away.03:13
persiaWhy?  It's too late for lucid, but is there a structural reason for the delay, or is LTS+1 sensible?03:14
wgrantIt's Soyuz/buildd stuff. It will take forever.03:14
persiaAh.  I like to assume that's a factor of the number of available developers, rather than an axiom, but I'll take your word for it, as you're surely more informed.03:15
wgrantIt is indeed a function of the number of available developers, but that is itself near to an axiom.03:17
persia0^n == 0 kinda thing?03:17
wgrantSomething like that.03:18

jdongis it intended that the empathy client be separate from the presence menubar [in lucid]?04:20
jdongI set up a chat client (jabber/gtalk) using the presence menu and afterwards it seems to have signed me into google talk04:21
jdongbut it was not immediately obvious that for me to start a chat, I had to start Empathy separately to get my buddy list04:21
ionThe panel item that looks like a snailmail letter provides a menu item for the Empathy main window.04:23
jdongah, you're right.04:24
jdongbut that seems a little bit unintuitive04:24
jdongthe menu that I set my presence status seems like where I should be able to do other chat-related things04:24
jdongespecially since AIUI the little textbox is for tweeting and such04:24
persiajdong: You're probably seeing rough edges.  indicator-me *should* abstract the client entirely, so that an arbitrary (set of) client(s) can use it effectively.  There may be a need for a richer feedback mechanism to ensure that things work as expected.04:31
jdongpersia: *nods* ok, just want to make sure that is the case, and there's not some philosophical usability disparity04:40
persiajdong: There *is* a philosophical usability disparity, which needs changes to the underlying code in order to bring into alignment :)04:41
persiajdong: The difference being "We recommend this by default", and "This is how this is done".04:41
jdongah :)04:41
persiajdong: So, if something doesn't work, please try to extend the flexibility inherent in the system so that it *does* work.  While this may have little apparent impact at the current time, it will significantly ease the adoption of new technologies as they become available.04:42
jdongwith that said, is it intended that Lucid is going to ship without further improvements to indicator-menu?04:44
jdongand/or the presence menu04:44
* persia suspects it to be the same as any other package: fix it if it's broken, but hope it works so that it doesn't need to be fixed04:46
jdongI just am concerned that this is going to confuse novice users04:48
persiaWell fix it then.04:51
ScottKDepends on your definition of fix.05:01
* ScottK suspects jdong's would collide with someone else's definition of feature removal.05:01
jdongwhat I don't understand is what "fix" means for the people who actually care about this new presence stuff.05:02
persiaSee, that's why I talked about the architecture.  If the DBus communication is extended, that doesn't affect user-perceived features, but it allows one to enable other use cases.05:03
* persia actively works to separate presence from use of any given device, so is perhaps not an authority on what "fix" means in that context05:03
