micahginfinity: what's blocking the build-dep on backports fix for backports now?03:00
infinitymicahg: Me landing a fix.  Is there something in that situation again?03:03
micahginfinity: oh, Bug #1099003 if a backport is desired03:04
ubottubug 1099003 in vlc (Ubuntu) "VLC 2.0.5 won't work with Opus. Please include libopus0 from n-muench PPA" [Undecided,Won't fix] https://launchpad.net/bugs/109900303:04
infinitymicahg: Given vlc's sercurity history, would we really want it in backports anyway?03:07
infinity(Backporting things that may need frequent updates seems suboptimal)03:07
micahginfinity: well, since vlc in precise and quantal is the same version, it seems like something easy to approve with just the binaries tested (I'd try to get someone to commit to at least that)03:08
micahg(well, after I review the packaging diff for any weirdness)03:09
infinitymicahg: Sure, the initial backport is simple (and not really much of a backport at all, per se), I just meant that it's likely it would need frequent updates.03:09
micahginfinity: well, if it's actually needed and someone commits to the testing, I don't mind pushing the buttons to make it happen to prevent someone from needing a PPA03:10
infinityFair enough.  I'm not using the above as an argument for me to not fix the build-dep situation.03:10
infinityUnrelated things. :P03:11
infinityIt just seems, in general, that backporting stuff with shoddy security histories ends up creating more work (cause, if you're being responsible about the whole affair, you have to keep re-backporting)03:11
micahgit's true, we discussed a slightly streamlined process for those at a previous UDS at the discretion of the backports team (where we're confident that not doing full testing won't break the world)03:12
infinityAnd, eventually, there will be a point where the backport's a bit of a pain to maintain, as Q, R, and S go out of maintenance, but we're still trying to backport to P.03:12
infinityRight now, it's obviously easy, just backport from quantal-security, done.03:13
infinity(And probably with 0 source changes, too)03:13
micahginfinity: right, as time goes on, this will get harder, if it comes to it, we can always just switch to a feature enablement backport if it gets too hard03:14
infinityAnyhow.  I'm hip-deep in glibc 2.17 right now, but remind me politely during the week about this, I have some other lp-buildd bugs I need to look at this week too.03:14
infinityAnd I tend to like to do them in batches.03:14
micahginfinity: sure, thanks03:14
infinityTo save the pain of rolling out lp-buildd to a bazillion builders over and over.03:15

tumbleweeddoko: grumble, your python3 porting of devscripts broke ubuntu-dev-tools17:51
tumbleweed(I suppose we should be using stdlib's logging module)17:52
bdrungtumbleweed: patches are welcome (if stdlib can produce the same output on the terminal)17:59
bdrungtumbleweed: or do you have other solutions?18:00
bdrungtumbleweed: adding python2 support back to devscripts would pull python 2 (which is probably unwanted)18:00
bdrungcreating a separate library is too much for such a simple module18:01
tumbleweedwe can get fairly similar output from logging, fairly easily18:01

cjwatsonbdrung: there've been multiple attempts to porting the launchpadlib stack (it's more than just python-launchpadlib) - so far, at best people have only got part-way before giving up.  I think barry was the last to try, and he ran into differing ideas about bytes/text in different parts of the stack21:04

MrWGW-you know I think I'd be more interested in doing a Cinammon-based Ubuntu derivative, versus a MATE based system21:52
MrWGW-I've been using Cinammon on Linux Mint, and IMO this system is a revelation; its clean, simple and elegant21:52
MrWGW-it feels to me like what Unity ought to have been in terms of representing a cleanup of GNOME 221:52
MrWGW-however from my last conversation in here I gathered that while there would be acceptance of a MATE desktop environment for Ubuntu, a Cinammon environment might be somewhat more controversial21:52
MrWGW-but I'd love to see, and for that matter, implement, such a Cinammon system21:53
MrWGW-basically, Cinammon, but with the beautiful Ubuntu font and artwork, and also in a form small enough to fit on a single CD, like the classic Ubuntu releases of yore21:53
MrWGW-and perhaps with other concessions to modern Ubuntu design, like icons on the left side of the window decorator21:53
MrWGW-and there are packaging quality problems in Mint also which this could sidestep21:55
MrWGW-also as an added plus if a Cinammon based Ubuntu took off, it might give Clement more time to focus on refining Cinammon since he'd no longer have the need to maintain a full distro21:55
bdrungMrWGW-: I think it's the other way around. having cinnamon in the archive is uncontroversial (which is the case for raring), but having MATE is (because it bring many deprecated libraries back).22:00
MrWGW-note that the MATE devs including Clem are working on fixing that22:02
MrWGW-I suspect that MATE and Cinammon will eventually merge22:02
MrWGW-but yes indeed, GNOME 2 was a nightmare from an architectural standpoint22:02
MrWGW-and one reason why I feel inclined to do a Cinammon variant of Ubuntu more so than a MATE one22:02
MrWGW-is I really do not relish the thought of having to respond to unpleasant bug reports involving Bonobo and other GNOME 2 legacy crap22:03
MrWGW-what I suspect, and hope, will happen, over the next few years: Mate and Cinammon will merge, so Cinammon will just be a UI style for MATE, with the classic two panel look also being an availble style, and so on22:04
MrWGW-and then meanwhile, if we're really lucky, this combined Cinammon/Mate venture will displace GNOME 322:04
MrWGW-and hopefully also at the very least some strong cooperation between Cinammon/Mate and Unity development could occur22:04
MrWGW-imagine if all three of these simply became user-selectable UI preferences22:04
MrWGW-note that I don't blame Ubuntu for going with Unity, although I neither care for or use it myself22:05
MrWGW-it was very popular on netbooks, and Ubuntu's hand was forced by GNOME 3 anyway22:05
MrWGW-although I think in the cold light of day, at some point, the core Ubuntu project is going to have to come to terms with the fact that Unity has been wildly unpopular with a large segment of previously loyal Ubuntu users for various reasons22:06
MrWGW-I personally am of the opinion that what works well on a tablet or a netbook does not neccessarily work well on a laptop or a desktop workstation22:06
MrWGW-consider Windows 8: on a tablet, I find it provides an amazing experience, from a pure UI standpoint, its even better than iOS, and its beats Android hands down22:06
MrWGW-but its utterly unusable on a conventional keyboard/mouse system; I haven't upgraded a single one of my Windows 7 boxes22:07
MrWGW-now when I look at Cinammon, I see a UI that implements fully the classical desktop paradigm that dates back to Windows 9522:07
MrWGW-it has a start menu in the bottom left, a clock in the bottom right, a taskbar,22:07
MrWGW-and yet its clean, modern in appearance and rather beautiful22:08
MrWGW-I think such a UI is what most users want22:08
MrWGW-and some people are using KDE, but KDE is as we all know its own can of worms22:08
MrWGW-its kind of slow, its kind of weird22:08
MrWGW-then there's LXDE, which is quite nice, quite modern but not as visually stunning as a more featureful system like Cinammon, or Unity for that matter22:08
MrWGW-now I haven't had a chance to play with Unity on a tablet or a TV, but I suspect on those interfaces, it will really shine22:09
MrWGW-and I really hope that an Ubuntu phone sees the light of day, this year22:09
MrWGW-if one goes on the market I'll buy it, in a heartbeat22:09
RiddellMrWGW-: can I suggest you stop your rant and don't call our software weird22:09
MrWGW-Riddell: Ubuntu isn't weird22:09
MrWGW-I was only referring to KDE22:10
MrWGW-what I'd like to do, if the interest exists, is do a Cinammon package for Ubuntu22:10
RiddellMrWGW-: hi.  I make Kubuntu.  Please stop calling my software weird.  Or go to slashdot if you want to do that sort of disrespectful attitude22:10
MrWGW-and maybe that can become a full desktop environment in the manner of Kubuntu or Lubuntu or Xubuntu22:10
MrWGW-Riddell: my apologies, no offense was intended22:11
MrWGW-I should add, I personally use and enjoy several obscure OSes which I would be the first to admit are weird, for example, Haiku and Plan9, for recreational purposes22:11
MrWGW-I was merely commenting on the benefits of cinammon and why it might be nice to have an official cinnamon flavor of Ubuntu22:12
micahgMrWGW-: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecognizedFlavors22:13
MrWGW-micahg: indeed22:13
MrWGW-I'm proposing to volunteer to maintain a cinnamon package for Ubuntu22:13
MrWGW-and if that becomes viable, then do a flavor based on it22:13
MrWGW-which could hopefully then become recognized if the quality was sufficient22:14
micahgMrWGW-: it's maintained in Debian ATM (that would be the best place to maintain the package), you can still do a flavor if you like though22:14
MrWGW-oh well heck, that's even better22:14
MrWGW-whereas MATE isn't in Debian, which creates more headaches22:15
MrWGW-so my development skills are as follows: I have strong general UNIX skills, reasonable Debian skills (most of my Linux boxes are either Ubuntu LTS or RHEL systems), some C skills, although I'm not a great C programmer, strong skills with Python and Ruby22:16
MrWGW-I haven't personally authored a .deb package so I don't know what's involved in that, but I'm sure I could pick that up quickly enough22:16
MrWGW-and I'm also very willing to field and respond to complaints from users and fix problems of that sort22:17
MrWGW-based on the above, do you think I would have what it would take to roll an Ubuntu flavor with Cinammon as the desktop environment?22:17
infinityDear apt-cacher-ng.  Why have you decided that it's suddenly a problem for you that ports.ubuntu.com doesn't have x86?  No love, Me.22:19
micahgMrWGW-: sure, it's also not expected for one person to possess all the skills necessary to make a flavor work (in fact, if it's one person doing everything, you're probably doing something wrong)22:20
stgraberinfinity: hmm, I thought you had a real mirror or a real proxy server, not some kind of incomplete implementation of the two ;)22:21
infinitystgraber: I had a real mirror until the disk backing it died.  Haven't gotten around to replacing it.22:21
infinity(Besides, apt-cacher on the laptop is still nice for travel)22:22
micahgMrWGW-: you might want to chat with the lubuntu folk (latest new official flavor) or ubuntu-gnome folk (flavor in progress)22:24
MrWGW-micahg: I'll talk to both groups22:26
MrWGW-although I'd be afraid of hostility from the ubuntu-gnome people :/22:26
=== cpg is now known as cpg|away
micahgMrW.GW-: there shouldn't be any..22:26
MrWGW-but yes I would need a few people onboard22:26
MrWGW-a friend of mine is also a sysadmin, and he's historically been a Fedora user, but he is disgruntled and has talked about doing a distro with me22:27
MrWGW-we talked about forking Fedora to remove systemd and have MATE be the default desktop22:27
MrWGW-but I'm thinking I should propose to him doing a Cinammon based Ubuntu instead22:27
MrWGW-since Ubuntu has upstart, which we both love, and there'd be less work involved22:27
MrWGW-since the core Ubuntu system is good, its much easier to put our preferred UI on it22:27
MrWGW-than it is to take an OS like Fedora, which actually as of 18 will include MATE, but which has internals we disagree with22:28
MrWGW-of course going the other way would be more glamrous, but its a lot more work22:28
MrWGW-and the quality of Ubuntu Server is really quite darn good22:28
MrWGW-as a long time Fedora/RHEL/CentOS guy (most of my RPM servers are running Scientific Linux), I have to say I now honestly prefer Ubuntu Server for most applications22:29
MrWGW-for these reasons, by the way, in case any of you care: Ubuntu Server now has similiar cli admin tools to the Red Hat stuff, i.e. the service command, Ubuntu Server allows you more choices in terms of filesystems, for example, you can install to a JFS root or an XFS root or whatever, you're not forced into an ext3 or 4 root22:30
MrWGW-and Ubuntu Server's more frequent release cycle vs. RedHat  and longer support vs. Fedora is a win22:30
MrWGW-the stability of each successive Ubuntu release tends to be greater than that of Fedora, so its just a nice platform22:30
MrWGW-also I've made good use in my lab of the built in UEC features22:31
MrWGW-in the lab I used to run a VMware system but I replaced it recently with UEC running on 10.04 LTS and its quite a bit nicer22:31
MrWGW-and I'm planning on upgrading that soon22:31
MrWGW-so basically, all that really has to happen here to create a killer desktop IMO would be an Ubuntu flavor using Cinammon, sized to fit on a single CD ROM image, providing an experience very similiar to that of the Ubuntu of yore22:32
MrWGW-ideally with the same artwork and theming as the equivalent Ubuntu Unity release22:32
MrWGW-basically my goal would be for it to look like the Unity release, except with the traditional taskbar at the bottom instead of the dock et cetra22:32
MrWGW-and I would propose branding this Ubuntu Classic Edition or Ubuntu Retro Edition, depending on your preferences22:33
MrWGW-if I were to do this, I'd aim to release for 13.10 (since its obviously too late for 13.04) and then if the quality were deemed acceptable, hopefully be in a position to be classifeid as an officially sanctioned flavor for 14.0422:33
infinityMrWGW-: You're not likely to get approval to call it "Ubuntu (anything)"22:39
MrWGW-so what about calling it cinbuntu?22:40
MrWGW-like a cinnamon bun22:40
MrWGW-but there is Ubuntu Studio btw22:40
infinityYes, there is.  Still saying you'd be fighting an uphill trademark battle.22:41
infinityBesides, cinnamon buns are tasty.22:41
MrWGW-cinnabuntu works for me22:42
astraljavaI'm not versed in legalese, but does it count that Studio is an official flavor?22:58
