dylan-mAnyone here happen to know if the software-center reviews / ratings feature is going to land for Lucid?01:17
nigelbdylan-m: It is.  http://www.jonobacon.org/2010/02/23/awesome-ubuntu-software-center-updates/01:17
wgrantThe spec was updated a few days ago in ways which indicate that it has been deferred.01:18
wgrantAnd I would hope that it had been deferred, at this point.01:18
dylan-mwgrant, nigelb: Indeed, I suspected that since the rating is using popcon data now :)01:19
dylan-mOh well, it was a bit gutsy for one cycle; lots of web infrastructure changes to make!01:19
wgrantAnd they were left far too late, as usual :/01:19
dylan-mMakes my job easier :P01:21
wgrantI might also point out that it looks like the Django backend is proprietary, so it's reasonable to complain :)01:21
dylan-m(well, slightly. The slideshow probably wouldn't be mentioning reviews anyway, but somebody is bound to think it should).01:21

lamontScottK: do we want 2.6.6 in a karmic ppa somewhere?01:36
ScottKlamont: I didn't look to see what's fixed in it.  It seems to me that Postfix is another package we ought to get TB permission to push through -updates.01:56

lamontso I realize it's all supposed to be magically intuitive and all that, but why do the window titles in the bottom panel have some random one lighter than the others?03:16
ionHm. I don’t have such behavior. Lighter exactly how? The text or the background?03:17
persialamont: Does it appear to have any relation to focus?03:18
lamontpersia: yes03:21
ionDesktops have been highlighting the focused window in the window list one way or another at least since Windows 95. :-P03:22
persialamont: In that case, I presume the answer is "To let users know which application they have focused right now"03:23
persiaion: Depends on which window list.  The one I use doesn't do that (even in lucid)03:23
ScottKIt's funny how many systems insist on helping me solve this confusion that I really almost never seem to have.03:23

lamontamusing. running hardy: Prompt=lts --> lucid upgrade.  Prompt=normal --> intrepid upgrade04:14
Prettopersia: no, i meant inside the xterm windows in the update-manager04:14
lamontsomehow that feels worthy of a bug04:14
persialamont: That's intentional.04:14
persialamont: Yes.  It looks odd here, but e.g. intrepid -> lucid isn't well tested, and may explode.04:15
persialamont: So, "normal" always goes to the next 18-month release.04:15
lamontpersia: not only untested, but expected to explode04:15
persiaIt might work.  We don't actually know.04:16
lamontOTOH, if I'm running d-r-u, I'd want to at least get asked "oh, hey, which of these 2 supported upgrade targets do you want to use"04:16
persiaBut we also don't know that it *will* explode.04:16
lamontotherwise the less-attentive will wind up doing 4 upgrades in the place of 104:16
persialamont: Now that's worth a bug.04:16
wgrantWell, if you had upgrades set to 'normal', you would have been prompted to upgrade 18 months ago.04:16
ScottKThere won't be two supported upgrades.04:17
ScottKIntrepid goes out of support ~ the same time Lucid becomes supported04:17
lamontwgrant: and I might have said 'no'04:17
lamontScottK: probably.  there isn't actually any guarantee of that04:17
ScottKlamont: True, but based on the promised support timeframes.04:18
lamontand hopefully d-r-u DTRT when intrepid goes *poof* and then someone runs it (notice and use old-releases.u.c)04:18
lamontwe've overdelivered in the past04:18
lamontnot always, and sometimes by < 10 days, but...04:18
persiaI'm fairly certain d-r-u doesn't know about old-releases.u.c : I strongly suspect it needs a patch to Ubuntu.info.in in python-apt04:20
lamontpersia: you lie04:23
lamontmvo added code for us when, um, hardy came out04:24
lamontbecause of the fun manual "fire up another terminal and edit sources.list" step for doing edgy->F->G->hardy04:24
persiaWell, I know python-apt doesn't know about it.  If it's special-cased in do-release-upgrade, that's not entirely bad.04:24
lamontit's in the tarballs that get downloaded04:25

chrisccoulsonScottK - I've been going through the extensions in the archive recently to try and decide what to do with them with the new firefox support model14:51
chrisccoulsonyou're more than welcome to share your opinion on any of those :)14:51
chrisccoulsonbut, my preference for most of them is to just remove them14:52
ScottKchrisccoulson: I don't have expertise to have an opinion on any specific one, generally I think that unless there is some reason to believe they'll be usable for a couple of years of Firefox updates, they should be removed.14:53
chrisccoulsonScottK - there are some extensions that will be ported to newer Firefox versions in the future, but I think most extensions we have in the archive will break at some point during the life of the release when we roll out a new major firefox version15:02
chrisccoulsondirecthex - do you look after beagle?15:02
ScottKEven the ones that would be ported, the in archive version would still be broken.15:02
directhexchrisccoulson, to a degree, that degree being "beagle's dead and we can't get it to work against the new gmime"15:03
chrisccoulsondirecthex - excellent. if it's dead, would you mind disabling the mozilla extension? (i think it provides one doesn't it?)15:04
Laneyno, it's been ported15:04
Laneythere's just a crash that we haven't/can't debug, so won't upload15:04
directhexLaney, i guess the moz bit needs porting to ff3.6... i think we should disbale it15:05
Laneywe need to upload to disable evo anyway15:05
chrisccoulsonLaney - the extension will most likely break again during the life of lucid, when new FF versions are introduced...15:05
chrisccoulsonso i'm not sure how we can maintain that15:05
Laneybut the reason we didn't upload isn't because we don't have a reason to, it's because we know it to be crashy :(15:05

psusican anyone with more knowledge of udev weigh in on the proper fix to this important bug that really needs fixed before lucid ships?  dmraid currently goes into an infinite loop because every time it activates a raid array it deletes the partitions from the underlying disks, which causes another activation20:00
psusione way to fix it seems to be to modify the udev rule so that it only activates on add, not change20:00
psusianother possibility would be to have udev remove the partitions when blkid detects that it is a raid member, rather than having dmraid do it on activation20:00
psusiand I'm sure there's other ways I have not thought of...20:01
superm1pitti, i was thinking as an alternative to checking glob(/var/lib/apt/ etc), you could probably instead just check for 'dkms' instead of 'bash'.  most of the drivers enabled via jockey would need DKMS anyhow, so having that on the repository should be a good indicator20:37
