knomehuhu, ok00:42
knomeok, website frontpage now updated with our articles widget14:24
knomein the future, please pay attention to writing/copy-pasting a sensible excerpt, if at all possible, or poke me14:25
knomepleia2, flocculant ^14:25
flocculantknome: writing/copy pasting to where? 14:58
knomeflocculant, in the post editing screen, in the top right, there's a button called "screen options"15:00
knomeclick that and make sure that "excerpt" is selected15:00
knomethen you can hide it15:00
knomeonce you have done that, an excerpt "box" under the article box appears15:00
flocculantknome: ok - that seems painless enough 15:03
flocculantso it's bound to go wrong for me :D15:03
knomewell, the thing is15:05
knomeif you don't put in anything15:05
knomeit will just take N words from the start15:05
knomeand append it with [...]15:05
knomewhich isn't the end of the world15:05
flocculantyea - I understand that 15:05
knomebut it's of course nicer to have hand-crafted excerpts15:05
knomeand we probably want to control that the boxes on the front page are about the same height15:06
flocculantyep for sure - if the excerpt is good enough then no need to read the whole if you're not really interested15:06
knomeso if the title is long (like for local doc building), the excerpt should likely be shorter15:06
knomefortunately we don't need these for old articles15:06
flocculantknome: so it takes the whole title 'as it is' ?15:07
knometitle is always as it is15:07
knomeyou can't control that15:07
knomeyou can only control the content excerpt15:07
flocculantok 15:08
knomeso yeah, coming up with sensible titles is a good thing too :P15:08
flocculantshort title = more excerpt room - got that 15:08
knomeand when all titles are ~same length, also looks better15:09
knomebut if it needs to be long, then it needs to be long15:09
flocculantyea - but rather unwieldy as a concept 15:09
flocculantyea indeed :D15:09
knomefor layouting purposes, the middle column is unfortunately a bit narrower15:09
flocculantquick comment on wording for 'The Team Blog' 15:09
knomeor more exactly the content area for that15:09
flocculantFind even more interesting articles implies to me that the ones there are less interesting 15:10
knomeso -even ?15:10
flocculanthang fire15:10
flocculantFor more articles perhaps15:10
knomeand as you can probably figure out, it's easily changeable15:11
flocculantyep that's better 15:11
flocculantyea - widget I assume 15:11
knomethis was just something i wrote quickly in order to have something there15:11
knomeyes, a widget indeed :)15:11
flocculantyea I assumed as much, why I mentioned the wording :)15:11
flocculantand does the widget promote newest to the left? 15:12
flocculantk 15:12
flocculantI got that :)15:13
flocculantknome: I assume you saw my MP moving qa links to common reference - wanted to at least get that sorted out prior to us getting it on docs.x.o 15:14
knomeyes, i'll look at it today15:17
flocculantok - only put you as it was us that was discussing it last week15:18
knomeif we can get the community funding for our own virtual server quickly, we should probably wait until that's up before setting up the contributor docs15:18
knomethe request was made by lyz yesterday15:18
flocculantnot sure I'd agree 15:19
krytarikknome: One thing I noticed earlier, the Developer Area still refers to Wily and its blueprints.15:21
knomekrytarik, right, i'll fix that next15:21
knomekrytarik, when do we have your next MP up?15:22
krytarikknome: Umm, it's already done.15:22
knomekrytarik, should be release-agnostic now15:25
flocculantis anyone else actually wanting to do anything with these docs?15:26
knomeflocculant, is anyone else wanting to read the current contributor docs we have?15:26
knomemy answer: i don't know15:26
flocculantha 15:27
flocculantI meant is anyone making noises about writing stuff :)15:27
knomei am :P15:27
knomei guess i've been involved so much with writing docs for all teams that i should make sure they end up in the new docs too15:28
flocculantas far as read - then who knows about them other than a few of *us* :)15:28
knomemaybe at some point i could let it go and start making others write :P15:28
knomenobody - yet15:28
knomewe will do massive publicity stunts15:28
knomewhere flocculant 'strikes' an arsenal - chelsea match for example15:28
knomethat was supposed to be a secret15:28
flocculantand by alll you mean not qa 15:32
knomeand a bit of it too15:33
flocculantthat I have to then unstranglish :p15:33
pleia2knome: noted re: excerpt16:20
pleia2knome: also, yay, site looks good16:20
knomebbl ->16:21

jjfrv8knome, I have a few corrections to suggest for the building docs locally article. How would I go about submitting those?19:17
flocculantjjfrv8: do an MP - it's what I've been doing :)19:20
jjfrv8but where do I pull the article from? And where would I point the MP?19:21
jjfrv8or will I find out Sunday? :)19:22
flocculantjjfrv8: sorry wrong end of the stick - all that stuff is on contributor docs too 19:41
krytarikI think he's referring to this though: http://xubuntu.org/news/building-xubuntu-documentation-package-locally/19:43
krytarikOh yes, you might have just indicated that. :P19:44
krytarikAlso, since we are talking that article, I might reiterate: "'fonts-droid' added in Wily too, but installed in Xubuntu by default".19:49
krytarikjjfrv8: And if you are eager to include that in the docs too, there is a pretty wide gap to be filled yet :P - https://unit193.net/xubuntu/docs/contributor/C/documentation.html#docs-building19:54
knomejjfrv8, send an email to me or slickymaster 21:23
flocculantcheating 21:25
knomewut is? :P21:25
knomeor you can send the mail to flocculant... who can then nag others to update the article :P21:26
flocculantha ha 21:26
flocculantI could update the article anyway :)21:26
