exarkunHow do I stop getting a ton of bug spam from Launchpad?01:57
exarkunI don't need to hear about five status changes a day in a bug for each of the six Ubuntu releases that it affects, honest.01:58
mwhudsonexarkun: are these bugs you are directly subscribed to?02:07
EvilResistanceexarkun:  if they're bugs you're directly subscribed to, modify your bug subscriptions.  if they're bugs you receive updates on because a team you're part of is subscribed, just mute your bug mail.02:08

shodaniumhello, i can't reset my password (https://launchpad.net/~shodan), and none of the support links are any use? tried many times in the past days, checked Spam folder (mail is on Gmail), checked out Help and Answers, still totally stuck. the most amazing part is that other email notifications *do* get through! but the password reset link does not.11:13
shodanium"can't reset" == "5+ tries over past 2 or 3 days, not a single email from launchpad"11:14
StevenKshodanium: Please ask in #canonical-isd11:15
shodaniumStevenK, thanks for the pointer!11:16
mptAre there any statistics on how many changes to Ubuntu bug reports Launchpad deals with per day?11:58
deryckmpt, hmmm, I'm not sure.  I doubt it.  I can look at lpstats and see.11:59
mptderyck, I see there's a graph of total rows in bugactivity. I guess what I'd be looking for is change in the total per day12:01
deryckmpt, right, the change in total and limited to just ubuntu bugactivity.12:02
mptWhat's the bugnotification table for?12:02
deryckYeah, and we just don't have anything like that.12:03
deryckmpt, holding table for the notifications we send.  I don't think it's a one for one with activity.12:03
deryckmpt, headed to lunch, back after, sorry12:03

exarkunFixed in Twisted, still jumping around from state to state in Ubuntu13:28
exarkunNot really relevant to me anymore, but I still got like six emails about it yesterday13:29
exarkunSorry, seven emails. ;)13:30
icerootexarkun: you can unsuscribe from the bug13:31
exarkuniceroot: I am not directly subscribed to the bug.13:31
tumbleweedyou should still be able to mute mail from it13:31
exarkunThe help for the mute button suggests otherwise.13:32
icerootexarkun: in all mails there is a link about "configuring notifications"13:32
exarkunMaybe I misunderstand it though?13:33
lifelessexarkun: ugh, yes that is a nuisance.13:33

zookoDear people of #launchpad: there is a thing that I like about launchpad...20:04
zookoin fact, when a random guy in a coffeeshop asked me yesterday what my launchpad t-shirt was about20:04
zookothis is the thing I explained to him.20:04
zookoBut I'm not sure that it is really an intended use case, and I'm wondering if I should stop trying to use laucnhpad for this.20:04
zookoThe thing is: there's a bug that affects many different open source projects.20:05
zookoIf I report it to one of them, they'll reject it saying it is the fault of the other one.20:05
zookoSo what I like to do is open bug reports with all of them, and then tie the reports together on a launchpad ticket, and give everyone a link to the launchpad ticket.20:05
zookoThat's worked quite successfully a few times in the past.20:05
zookoe.g. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/binutils/+bug/46130320:06
ubot5Launchpad bug 461303 in binutils (Fedora) "generates-bad-code regression" [Unknown,In progress]20:06
zookoand e.g. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/foolscap/+bug/78241420:06
ubot5Launchpad bug 782414 in foolscap "tahoe-lafs can't start because foolscap packaging metadata doesn't declare the fact that it supports secure_connections" [Unknown,New]20:06
zookoSo, here I am wanting to do that again, about a bug which interacts with: gcc, Fedora, Crypto++, pycryptopp, and Tahoe-LAFS.20:07
zookoBut, I can't figure out how to create a ticket on launchpad so that I can link the five different tickets on those five projects's trackers.20:07
zookoBecause, none of those five uses launchpad as its bug tracker.20:07
zookoIf any one project does, then I can link the other four.20:07
lifelesszooko: oooh thats a shiny use case.20:14
lifelesszooko: you basically need to be able to add a watch directly to a reference-only project in LP20:14
lifelesszooko: we totally want such bugs in the LP db20:14
zookolifeless: I'm glad you like it!20:16
zookoThat's encouraging.20:16
zookoI always thought lp was intended for this back when it was a gleam in your eye.20:17
lifelessas a workaround, if any of the projects are in Ubuntu, you could start with a bug on Ubuntu itself.20:17
zookoIf we can unstick this a little, or at least see how to in the future, I'll edit the Google+ post that I just made containing roughly the same text as above.20:17
zookoOkay, I'll... yeah, I'll do Ubuntu's package of Crypto++.20:17
* zooko tries.20:17
zookoNo offense, but I often find lp UI confusing.20:18
dobeyit often is confusing :-/20:18
zookoI generally muddle through, but I always think to myself "if only we could streamline this then there would be more better data flowing in from more users"...20:18
zookoI think there are some concepts in lp which are not native to my way of thinking and are also not called out very explicitly in the UI.20:18
lifelesszooko: if you are interested in helping streamline it, I'd be delighted to help you get accustomed to LP's code base20:19
zookoSuch as.. what was it I kept getting tripped up by the other day..20:19
zookoThere was some distinction between a team and a project that I kept mis-navigating.20:19
zookolifeless: I'm not unwilling to write patches, but I think the need here is for a designer, which isn't my expertise, and for a stronger eye+hand than another chef thrusting his spoon in. :-)20:19
zookoNow, complaints I'm good at.20:20
zookoAnd I think they *might* help, maybe.20:20
zookoAnyway, the thing I'm noticing right now is that I'm never entirely sure whether I'm looking at Ubuntu's package of $X or at $X's source or at upstream-$X.20:20
zookoWhere today X=gcc20:20
zookoSorry, I mean cryptopp.20:20
lifelesszooko: someone skilled with a (constructively) critical eye would certainly be a positive contributor - we have a designer (huwshimi), product strategist (mrevell) and I can offer technical direction quite easily :)20:21
lifelesszooko: LP's problem is that it got fat somewhere along the way; a focus I have is rending that down and getting it lean again (internally)20:21
zookolifeless: well, I'm willing to (a) shut up about my problems, (b) keep mentioning them in passing on this channel while doing other work, (c) spend, oh, I dunno, an hour writing notes?, (d) ?20:22
lifelesszooko: I do agree that a random walk isn't necessarily the best idea :)20:22
zooko(c) only if you really think it would help.20:22
zookolifeless: yes, I approve of your focus!20:22
zookolifeless: there's this thing - -I wonder if you've noticed.20:22
lifelesszooko: b is good, c encoded as 'file clear symptom based bug reports', d - I will get you writing patches someday20:23
zookoOf all sites that I visit in FF on Linux, LP alone takes, like 1 or 2 *seconds* to render after I switch to a tab that has already loaded it.20:23
zookoIt's kind of mysterious.20:23
lifelessthat is interesting20:23
zookoYeah. Oh, I'll do a quick experiment...20:23
lifelessdo you have an nvidia card ?20:23
zookoBut... are you serious?20:24
zookoOkay, the experiment may involve turning off my network temporarily...20:24
ubot5Launchpad bug 605567 in Mozilla Firefox "Extremely slow painting of launchpad.net bug details page with nvidia driver" [High,Confirmed]20:24
ubot5Launchpad bug 744808 in Launchpad itself "image sprite is packed very asymmetrically and triggers poor rendering performance in firefox3 and missing icons in firefox4" [High,Triaged]20:25
zookolifeless: just from the titles that sounds plausible.20:26
zookoOkay, so back to what I was doing.20:26
lifelesszooko: its probably very shallow to fix20:26
lifelesszooko: and has nothing to do with what direction to pull in :)20:27
zookoI don't think I'll have a go at that one.20:28
lifelessI should make time for it20:28
zookoHeh heh.20:29
zookoOh, one more thing -- two tickets linked to from here are stuck: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/binutils/+bug/46130320:32
ubot5Launchpad bug 461303 in binutils (Fedora) "generates-bad-code regression" [Unknown,In progress]20:32
zookoBecause auto-update isn't working for them and I don't have perms to manually fix them.20:32
zookoSo I posted asking someone else to do so or to authorize me.20:32
lifelessposted where?20:34
lifelessah, in the bug20:34

zookoFYI: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libcrypto++/+bug/91501820:38
ubot5Launchpad bug 915018 in libcrypto++ (Ubuntu) "gcc 4.7.0 fixes a bug that Crypto++ 5.6.1 relies on" [Undecided,New]20:38
zookoI gave you credit for the idea of abusing the the tracker of bugs in Ubuntu's packages.20:39
zookoWhoops I broke it.20:40
zookoI made a link from that to Crypto++, deleted it ("marked it as no longer affecting Crypto++"), then clicked on "Also affects project", then got a 404 page.20:41
zookoDoing "Also affects project" again just now it worked.20:41
zookoSo I guess there was a race condition there.20:41
lifelessyour primary context had changed20:42
lifelessthe delete happens via ajax and didn't update the primary context20:42
lifelessbut the form is done under that context20:42
zookoBTW, I just had another momentary one of those "launchpad concept moments".20:46
zookoI went to link to the Fedora ticket, and clicked on "also affects project".20:46
zookoAfter searching through 3 pages of projects with "Fedora" in their name I remembered that launchpad has a concept of "distributions" which are distinct from projects.20:47
lifelessthere is a bug, can't trivially find it20:48
lifelessbug 133420:49
ubot5Launchpad bug 1334 in Launchpad itself "Separate "also affects: " Project and Distribution links are hard to use and confusing" [Low,Triaged] https://launchpad.net/bugs/133420:49
zookoI'll subscribe to that one and the nvidia rendering one...20:49
zookoAt least, I clicked "this affects me". Not sure if that subscribes me.20:50
lifelessit does not20:50
lifelessif you want mail, click on subscribe on the right hand side20:50
lifelesswe find its better not to conflate anything with subscribing, cause folk often do not want mail sent to them20:51
zookoI wonder if there could be a sufficiently unobtrusive way to offer it. Maybe I could click on the "change if this affects me" button and get options: "No, it doesn't affect me.", "Yes, this affects me." and "Yes, this affects me and subscribe to this bug.".20:53
zookoI'd like to show you my post about this on Google+, but unfortunately I can't make it publicly visible without sending it to the notice of all of my subscribers.20:55
zookoThanks for your help! Back in  abit.20:55
zookoOh, here: Update: Robert Collins suggested I create the ticket on launchpad by reporting a bug against Ubuntu's packaging of the software, even though technically speaking the version that Ubuntu has packaged doesn't have this problem. Here's the result:20:55
zooko 20:55
