seb128Sweetshark_nhome, ok, I will have a look, but likely tomorrow morning18:02
seb128Sweetshark_nhome, note that you should got it in quantal before SRUing and that you better have a bug with the details from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates filed18:02
seb128Sweetshark_nhome, i.e rational, regression potential, etc ... the (new) SRU team started requiring those recently18:03
seb128i.e they will not review things in the queue which don't have a bug with those infos18:03
Sweetshark_nhomeseb128: not urgent, as the package is a) in the ppa b) would rot for a week in -proposed anyway.18:04
* dobey really doesn't like this new SRU thing18:06
micahgumm, those have been the rules for a while, just not enforced well18:08
seb128micahg, hey, how is the firefox 13 testing going?18:10
micahgseb128: just updating my VMs, will be starting soon :)18:10
bcurtiswxThe SRU proceedures are laborious now, makes me shy away from them18:13
dobeymicahg: perhaps, but probably for good reason.18:13
dobeybcurtiswx: exactly18:13
micahgbcurtiswx: as has been mentioned, these have been the procedures for quite a while, people have just been ignoring them18:14
dobeythe [Test Case] is fine, and makes sense, but the other stuff seems overly redundant and costly18:14
bcurtiswxIt's all fine , and i completely understand why they're enforcing it now, especially with an MOTU app coming in the next few months i'll NEED to be that detailed in my SRU exampels :P18:15
micahgdobey: rational and regression potential are to save the SRU team some time in evaluating the upload18:15
jbicha_how do you evaluate "regression potential"?18:15
dobeymicahg: rational?18:16
dobeyjbicha_: it's always "Unknown"18:16
micahgdobey: why the update is happening18:16
dobeyjbicha_: or "Minimal" if you prefer :)18:16
jbicha_I like "minimal" ;)18:16
dobeymicahg: there is nothing in "Procedure" about rational.18:16
micahgjbicha_: regression potential is how likely the change will affect the surrounding code18:16
micahgdobey: s/rationale/imapct/18:17
dobeymicahg: but isn't the bug report itself exactly what that section is supposed to be?18:17
micahgdobey: it's to highlight the issue so the SRU team doesn't have to read the whole report18:17
jbicha_don't we want the SRU team to read the bug report?18:18
dobeyi would hope the SRU team would be reading the bug report18:18
micahgno, they should just need to read the description (some of the reports get really long)18:18
dobeyi mean, if all this stuff is in the description anyway18:19
dobeymicahg: yes, but comments != report18:19
micahgdobey: yes, but not all the info is in the description from the outset18:19
dobeymicahg: sure, and some people take better care to maintain their projects/packages than others might. the extent of requirement makes more sense for arbitrary updates to arbitrary packages, but less so for well maintained things18:21
dobeyi mean, i'm pretty sure chrisccoulson doesn't have to provide a minimal patch applicable to the previous version of firefox, when updating to the new version :)18:21
micahgdobey: well maintained things should probably go for SRU mircorelease exceptions :)18:22
chrisccoulsoni can if you like, but then the SRU team will spend several months reviewing it18:22
micahgchrisccoulson: we already have SRU exceptions :)18:22
bcurtiswxmicahg, my SRU is a microrelease and they still wanted FULL guideline in description18:22
dobeychrisccoulson: and then there will be 4 more releases of firefox to review by the time they're done! :)18:22
micahgbcurtiswx: there's a process for microrelease exceptions18:22
chrisccoulsonwell, the SRU process doesn't really scale to uploads that fix more than a single issue anyway18:23
chrisccoulsonunless you have a test case for every commit18:23
Sweetshark_nhomeseb128: arrgh, the internetz are slow here, upload will take a while anyway -- so tommorrow ...18:23
micahgwell, it scales to a handful or so (and the idea is to have a test case for every bug in an SRU)18:23
dobeybesides, there's no way the SRU team can properly review any patch that's more than a few lines for a simple change.18:23
bcurtiswxmicahg, its confusing to what they want.. just to go ahead and upload? no SRU bug request?18:24
dobeyunless it's for something they themselves work on18:24
micahgbcurtiswx: AIUI, stuff w/microrelease exceptions need a tracking bug still18:24
dobeymicahg: vs. simply having the bugs which are fixed in the micro release?18:25
micahgdobey: AIUI, yes (but IANA SRU team member)18:25
jbicha_for instance, the clutter point release fixes bugs, but there's no way I will be able to write testcases for them18:26
dobeyjbicha_: there are certainly cases like that18:27
jbicha_so depending on how stricly it's enforced, there will be less SRUs18:27
dobeyjbicha_: not to mention cases where the test case is "step 1) boot into Windows XP"18:27
micahgwell, depends if clutter falls under the GNOME point release exception, maybe seb128 can help determine that18:27
jbicha_oh GNOME has an exception?18:28
dobeyjbicha_: well, it's not listed on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates/MicroReleaseExceptions18:29
dobeywhich is odd18:29

dobeyi guess i need mail the tech board18:30
micahghrm, I thought GNOME had an exception for bug fix only updates18:30
dobeyjbicha_: it's missing the regression potential! :)18:30
dobeyjbicha_: though i don't immediately trust translations only changes either. i have had broken translations break things far too many times18:32
bcurtiswxfinding out a little bit more about Microrelease Exceptions, you need to be on this list: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates/MicroReleaseExceptions18:35
bcurtiswxotherwise even a microrelease still needs ALL that from SRU process18:35
bcurtiswxkenvandine, ^^ ICYWW18:35
* Sweetshark_nhome will just write "regression potential: yes" ...18:35
kenvandinei thought gnome was on that list!18:36
kenvandineseb128, ^^18:36
bcurtiswxi asked about GNOME before you said that, and nobody in -motu has chirped up about any GNOME exception18:38
Sweetshark_nhomewell, that list is not reflecting reality as LibreOffice has rightfully been MRUed too.18:40
micahgbcurtiswx: -motu wouldn't inherently know about GNOME anyways :)18:40
micahgSweetshark_nhome: you haven't applied for an exception for libreoffice yet18:40
Sweetshark_nhomemicahg: AFAI am concerned it had one from the start (i.e. before I joined)18:41
micahgSweetshark_nhome: nope, you need to apply: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates/MicroReleaseExceptions18:41
bcurtiswxI think GNOME would have been on of the first MRE's there. <shrugs>18:42
kenvandinei thought we've done those for gnome18:43
kenvandineseb128 would know18:43
* bcurtiswx sends a pitchfork and fire brigade out for seb128 at dinner..18:43
micahgSweetshark_nhome: I believe there's a desire for one, but it just needs to be proven in practice18:44
Sweetshark_nhomemicahg: Ill let pitti and seb128 sort that out. It was reality up to now and I would not throw in extra bureaucrazy to _keep_ the status quo.18:45
micahgSweetshark_nhome: you generally have trial SRUs before going for the microrelease exception, once the first few go well and show that the world doesn't break and there aren't any regressions, then one generally applies for the microrelease exception18:47
micahgSweetshark_nhome: as I mentioned back in January, you seem to be taking advantage of the trial window without going for the exception (and suggested that you apply for the MRE before you start SRUing for precise)18:48
Sweetshark_nhomemicahg: as long as the bus factor for libreoffice is 1, all those discussions are sophistic academics anyway.18:53
micahgSweetshark_nhome: what do you mean?18:54
Sweetshark_nhomethere is noone (except maybe doko) who can review libreoffice upstream changes in ubuntu anyway (which is a pity) ...18:57
micahgSweetshark_nhome: the idea is to not have to do those reviews and to rely on the upstream regression tests mostly, but there's a process for allowing that in the distro18:58
=== mbiebl_ is now known as mbiebl
Sweetshark_nhomefwiw I trust the ~12.000 users downloading the rc from the libreoffice ppa a lot more than any process involving people having nothing todo with libreoffice at all reviewing updates, no matter in what way they are doing it.19:00
micahgSweetshark_nhome: that's great that you have so many users of the RC, but that doesn't mean that you can ignore the distro processes that other upstreams need to go through (and if the quality is as good as you say, it should be an easy application)19:01
dobeyseb128: save the world with your super powers!19:09
kenvandinehey seb128!19:09
seb128jbicha_, kenvandine, bcurtiswx: they dropped the GNOME standing exception stuff I think, well those were for pre-releases freezes anyway19:09
seb128not for SRU19:09
seb128you always want some care with SRUs19:09
kenvandineok... kde is still on there :)19:09
micahgkenvandine: KDE applied for an SRU exception19:09
seb128GNOME screwed in the past (I would say they are not good post release since they have no freeze left, no review, no testing)19:10
kenvandineok, makes sense to drop that then19:10
dobeyseb128: freezes are supposed to remain in effect in upstream GNOME19:10
dobeyseb128: but they can be lax about some of them as well19:11
seb128dobey, well, not hard freeze where r-t does reviews19:11
seb128which in practice means there is no review19:11
seb128nobody enforcing the freeze19:11
dobeyyeah, upstream gnome does not have good process19:11
seb128you can add that GNOME does virtually no automated or manual testing for releases19:11
dobeyit's mostly whatever maintainer deems ok19:11
dobeyand the stuff that's not directly part of GNOME itself, but which GNOME uses, will sometimes break certain things pretty badly *cought*gtk*cough* :)19:12
bcurtiswxGood points made. I'm19:13
bcurtiswxSitting at a red light lol. I<3 technology19:14
dobeybcurtiswx: that's illegal in VA :)19:15
dobey"Don't IRC and drive."19:15
bcurtiswxIt's illegal to drive. I was totally stopped :-P19:27
dobeybcurtiswx: it's illegal to operate a cellular device while sitting in the driver's seat of a vehicle, in VA. i won't mention all the police i see driving around in patrol cars playing with their cell phones, though.19:36
dobeycome on MRE. get approved19:37
bcurtiswxdobey, weird i've had cops sit at intersections next to me and stare at me using my cell phone and couldn't care...19:38
dobeybcurtiswx: yeah, it's not a very well enforced law. sort of like SRU rules :)19:38
dobeyhrmm. tech board doesn't have great timezone coverage19:42
micahgdobey: since their meetings are normally discussion vs having applicants, I would think it matters less19:44
dobeymicahg: sure, in that sense, yes.19:46
dobeybut not in the "who can i bribe right now" sense, when there are applications :)19:46
micahgdobey: I think in terms of having someone around always, they do have decent coverage19:48
dobeymicahg: eh? there are 2 people who aren't in europe, and those 2 people, while in the US, aren't in positions where ubuntu development is their primary focus19:50
dobeybut anyway19:50
micahgdobey: cjwatson is usually around until late evening US, kees is usually a ping away19:51
micahgdobey: and I think you forgot about stgraber :)19:52
dobeyoh, right. i didn't realize he was in montreal. i thought he was in europe too :)19:53
dobeybut still, a good thing i'm not in APAC :)19:54
stgraberwell, I almost spend a quarter of the year in Europe, but yeah, I'm usually on US/Canada eastern19:54
dobeystgraber: what do you think of my MRE request? also feel free to moderate it through to the list, if it hasn't been yet ;)19:57
stgraberdobey: I can't see it, I'll poke cjwatson to do a moderation run19:58
bcurtiswxkenvandine, OK I've updated the bug appropriately, hopefully they see it :)19:58
dobeyah ok19:58
kenvandinebcurtiswx, thx20:00
dobeymterry: does deja-dup add a "Restore missing files…" item in nautilus?20:45
mterrydobey, yes20:46
dobeymterry: ah. yay confusion! seems people sometimes mistake it as something that will download files from ubuntuone, vs. restoring from a backup (whether that backup is on u1 or not)20:47
dobeyparticularly confusing for users who don't use deja-dup i guess20:47
dobeymterry: cf the description in bug #100658320:47
ubot2Launchpad bug 1006583 in ubuntuone-client "Ubuntu One does not synchronize files after reinstall" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/100658320:47
mterrydobey, :-/20:48
dobeyprobably causes confusion with dropbox as well20:48
dobeyparticularly when inside the u1 folder20:49
dobeyor dropbox20:49
dobeyor whatever20:49
dobeynot sure how to fix that exactly20:49
dobeybut i do like the intention of it :)20:49
mterrydobey, yeah not sure what the best fix is there20:51
mterrydobey, maybe "... from backup" but some users would likley still get confused20:51
dobeyof course we also have confusion with the things that add sharing stuff20:51
dobeymterry: indeed, and these things need to be short, not long winded explanations :)20:52
dobeymterry: perhaps setting it insensitive if deja-dup isn't configured would be a good start though20:53
dobeythen at least people won't click on it and get an annoying error about deja-dup not being configured, but which they don't understand either20:53
mterrydobey, I think in such cases, we let the user configure things20:54
dobeymterry: hrmm, that report said he got an error about restore failing due to no hostname specified20:57
mterrydobey, maybe there's a bug, but the intent was to guide the user through pointing at their restore20:58
dobeymterry: maybe the user went through it, but had no idea what was going on, and thought it was related to getting his files out of ubuntu one, but it just failed at the end?20:59
dobeysoftware is hard :-/20:59

brycehrobert_ancell, it's maintained by a different person than the regular debian-x team21:54
brycehrobert_ancell, they've not put out formal releases.  -ati is also very intermittent on tarball releases so we usually ship snapshots21:54
