pleia2nice work again this week on the summaries!20:12
pleia2adding a few more from planet and news over the weekend20:12
tsimonq2pleia2: hey, I just thought I'd note something common I'm seeing in the summaries. I'm seeing something like this "... from omgubuntu.co.uk ..." instead of "... from OMG! Ubuntu! ..."21:16
tsimonq2pleia2: first of all, am I right to correct it to the latter?21:16
tsimonq2pleia2: also, I wonder if it's on the wiki as something not to do21:17
pleia2tsimonq2: you can correct them whenever21:22
pleia2and yeah, we can add it to the style guidelines21:22
tsimonq2pleia2: alright, I'll do that21:22
pleia2we want the proper name of the publication, not just the URL (unless the URL is the proper name)21:23
tsimonq2pleia2: I'm a little against adding https://www.maketecheasier.com/snap-packages-vs-flatpacks/ in the newsletter, it has some wrong information, saying, "...and the technology is hard-coded to use the Snap package store. Some may be nervous of this, as Ubuntu has total control, and in fact in order to make a Snap package you’ll need to sign a Contributor License Agreement (something that some peopl21:23
tsimonq2e are very much against)." which if I remember correctly was proven wrong by http://blog.dustinkirkland.com/2016/06/howto-host-your-own-snap-store.html21:24
tsimonq2pleia2: thoughts?21:24
pleia2tsimonq2: I was under the impression that you still needed to sign the CLA21:24
pleia2tsimonq2: the article by dustin is about hosting you own whole store, outside of Ubuntu's ecosystem21:25
pleia2so the author of the article is conflating some things21:25
tsimonq2pleia2: hmm, I didn't think you needed to sign the CLA o upload to your own store21:25
tsimonq2pleia2: but besides that point, it says that you need to use Ubuntu's store21:26
tsimonq2pleia2: which is wrong21:26
pleia2well, realistically speaking there aren't any third party snap stores21:26
pleia2dustin's article speaks in hypotheticals as a response to criticism21:26
pleia2we can leave an editorial disclaimer in our summary, but I think the article still has a lot of valuable points21:27
tsimonq2pleia2: alright21:28
tsimonq2pleia2: wow, including me and you, we had seven contributors to the newsletter this week!21:32
pleia2yeah :D21:32
pleia2after the epic fail that was pleia2-writes-everything there has been an uptick21:32
tsimonq2pleia2: \o/21:32
tsimonq2pleia2: I would link to Dustin's article in the editorial note21:33
pleia2I'll think about it, that makes it a bit longer than I'd like, and we've already reported on his article21:33
tsimonq2pleia2: ruh roh, register wall: http://www.infoworld.com/article/3091884/linux/review-ubuntu-server-16-04-lts-shines.html21:34
tsimonq2pleia2: similar to the paywall :P21:34
pleia2sigh, we'll have to delete it21:34
pleia2it was free earlier this week, but I guess it expired21:34
tsimonq2pleia2: done21:34
tsimonq2or maybe you registered? ;)21:34
pleia2a lot of these pay/register wall things have a free period21:35
pleia2it's hit is a few times21:35
tsimonq2oh really? huh21:35
pleia2yeah, usually 5 to 7 days21:37
tsimonq2pleia2: other than that, it has a 👍 from me, all the summaries are done! (not an editorial 👍, it's just that the summaries are a  all done :P)21:37
tsimonq2pleia2: that's a thumbs up unicode symbol21:38
pleia2oh, haha21:38
tsimonq2grrr wiki21:42
tsimonq2pleia2: I was going to edit those style guidelines but the wiki doesn't like me right now :(21:43
tsimonq2pleia2: edited, how does it look?21:57
tsimonq2pleia2: \o/22:03
