pabs3how do I claim and delete this launchpad account? I already have the pabs account. https://launchpad.net/~pabs303:33
wgrantpabs3: If you're logged in you should see a link to claim it03:36
wgrantThen you need to verify that you own the address03:36
wgrantIf you don't have access to the address any more, ask at https://answers.launchpad.net/launchpad/+addquestion and we'll sort it out.03:36
pabs3and to delete it?03:38
StevenKpabs3: Probably easier to claim it and merge it into your existing account03:53
wgrantBest way to delete it is to merge it03:54
wgrantSince it's the same person03:54
wgrantIt'll switch the references across to your one true account03:54
pabs3ok cool. done, thanks03:59
george_eIs there an API route for obtaining a list of all PPAs?05:20
george_eI searched through the documentation and haven't come across anything yet.05:20
wgrantgeorge_e: No. Why do you want to do that?05:23
george_ewgrant: Because the API provides a route for obtaining all of the packages in a PPA, I thought it would be neat to write a tool that enumerated all of the PPAs and obtained the package list for each of them.05:24
george_eThen I could dump all of the data into a database and write a nice web front-end for searching.05:24
wgrantYou don't want to be scraping that volume of data from Launchpad05:24
wgrantIt is large05:24
george_eOh... how many PPAs do we have?05:25
StevenKOver 40,00005:25
george_eOkay... never mind.05:26
george_ewgrant: But the link you provided doesn't work.05:26
wgrantAnd those are just the public ones.05:26
StevenKIt times out05:26
StevenKThat page is pretty terrible05:26
george_eStevenK: As far as I can remember, that page has always timed out.05:26
wgrantIt should work after a refresh05:26
george_eOh now it works! Thanks!05:27
george_eNow I've just noticed that this tool <https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/y-ppa-manager> claims to be able to search through the "PPA database".05:29
wgrantThey might scrape the data directly from the archives on ppa.launchpad.net05:31
george_eThe relevant code seems to be here: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~webupd8team/y-ppa-manager/y-ppa-manager/view/head:/list_search_ppas#L23005:34
wgrantMy eyes05:34
StevenKwget -q https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter="$SEARCH_PPA"05:34
* StevenK reaches for a spoon05:34
wgrantI am reminded of Automatix.05:35
StevenKwgrant: That word is forbidden.05:36
george_eInteresting discovery: <https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=> matches 14,958 PPAs.05:37
wgrantCounts that large are an approximation.05:38
george_eAnyway, I get the impression my idea is dead in the water. Unless Launchpad did some sort of "data dump" of the database.05:39

bjfi've got a odd problem. a script which uses the launchpad api suddenly started crashing on a host. this script uses "login_anonymously" and doesn't specify a cache directory. to "fix" it i specified a cache directory. where is the "default" cache directory that would normally be used?23:31
bjfnevermind, found it23:47
