May 27 20:05:58 * Sparks wonders where ke4qqq is
May 27 20:06:08 <ianweller> he was here earlier, was talking with him
May 27 20:06:13 <Sparks> okay... Who is planning on being @ SELF and the

May 27 20:08:16 <danielsmw> Sparks: anything specifically to work on at the

May 27 20:08:20 <Sparks> I think we'll have remote capabilities there as
May 27 20:08:58 <Sparks> danielsmw: There are things to talk about.
May 27 20:09:14 * ke4qqq is here but late
May 27 20:09:41 <danielsmw> But just in time to make your plug.
May 27 20:10:00 <Sparks> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAD_SELF#Activities
May 27 20:10:28 * jjmcd would like to see the FAD crowd figure out the
answer to the ultimate question of language codes, publican and everything
May 27 20:10:39 <ke4qqq> jjmcd: 42
May 27 20:10:56 * ke4qqq checks that off the list
May 27 20:11:16 <jjmcd> You must have had your towel with you the other day
May 27 20:11:24 <ianweller> jjmcd: ^_^
May 27 20:11:32 <Sparks> ke4qqq: What capabilities are we going to have for
May 27 20:11:46 <Sparks> I can bring a phone for Talk access
May 27 20:11:58 <ianweller> i was planning on bringing my phone too
May 27 20:12:01 <ke4qqq> we'll have a grandstream sip phone
May 27 20:12:03 <ianweller> if security doesn't have a hissy fit
May 27 20:12:11 <ke4qqq> security won't
May 27 20:12:23 <ricky> I've brought hard drives through without having any
May 27 20:12:24 <ke4qqq> I've flown with mine
May 27 20:12:28 <ianweller> ke4qqq: soh ave i
May 27 20:12:33 * dychen_ has quit ("Ex-Chat")
May 27 20:12:35 <ianweller> ke4qqq: they just kinda looked at me oddly ;)
but it was fine
May 27 20:13:01 <ke4qqq> we also have irc and gobby
May 27 20:13:11 <ianweller> and we can borrow a megaphone
May 27 20:14:07 <Sparks> ke4qqq: Anything we need to discuss?
May 27 20:14:45 <ke4qqq> nothing aside from getting as many people to attend
as possible - hopefully recruiting one or two new ones the day of SELF and
adding to the activities list
May 27 20:14:48 * radsy (n=irc nat/redhat/x-a97825f39214264b) has joined
May 27 20:15:19 <Sparks> cool.
May 27 20:15:23 <Sparks> anyone have any questions?
May 27 20:15:44 <Sparks> okay... moving on...
May 27 20:15:45 * Sparks has changed the topic to: Docs Project - New
[http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/us/ CC] license discussion.
May 27 20:16:09 <Sparks> So... there have been discussions on IRC and on
the list about changing our license from OPL to CC-BY-SA.
May 27 20:16:22 <Sparks> RHLegal have said that they are cool with this...
May 27 20:16:41 <Sparks> and it looks like the BY-SA version is very similar
to the OPL...
May 27 20:17:01 <Sparks> EXCEPT that it allows "similar" downstream licenses
to be used...
May 27 20:17:06 <jjmcd> So if its similar, why change
May 27 20:17:07 <ianweller> there's been general consensus on the list but i
think setting up a poll would be the safest way to go about this
May 27 20:17:09 <Sparks> instead of mandating that it must be OPL.
May 27 20:17:24 <Sparks> ianweller: who are we polling?
May 27 20:17:24 <ianweller> jjmcd: allows more freedom for downstream
May 27 20:17:30 <ianweller> Sparks: docs
May 27 20:17:31 <ke4qqq> my concern is where 'similar' might be more
May 27 20:17:38 <Sparks> ianweller who is docs?
May 27 20:17:44 <ianweller> Sparks: fas group
May 27 20:17:55 <Sparks> ianweller: which is borked... but that's another
May 27 20:17:58 <ianweller> hehe
May 27 20:18:02 <ke4qqq> ianweller: voting??? ugghh
May 27 20:18:22 <jjmcd> Well, probably four people will vote and you already
know their answer
May 27 20:18:25 * mchua has quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
May 27 20:18:31 <Sparks> Right now the CC licenses are more widely known and
understood... a standard if you will
May 27 20:18:59 <Sparks> but it is very similar to what we are using now.
May 27 20:19:17 <ke4qqq> Sparks: you are the appointed leader - if you feel
you have consensus move forward with it. That's one thing we lost with
fdsco, ability for a small group to make decisions
May 27 20:19:22 <ianweller> the CC licenses are much more standard and we
might even be able to get a few contributors with the buzz about the license
May 27 20:19:33 <jjmcd> is this downstream business the only difference?
May 27 20:20:05 <ianweller> if we do it well we can get featured on the
front page of the CC website, perhaps
May 27 20:20:40 <ke4qqq> so another concern is getting upstaged by rh docs
doing the same move
May 27 20:20:56 <ke4qqq> be nice if we could stage them by a month or so.
May 27 20:21:30 <ke4qqq> ie, fedora makes the move in June and RH docs waits
May 27 20:21:39 <Sparks> the CC license are far more accepted and understood
May 27 20:21:44 <ianweller> +1 ke4qqq
May 27 20:22:15 <Sparks> CC licenses have actually be integrated into some
May 27 20:23:03 <ianweller> Sparks: as ke4qqq said you're the leader... do
we have consensus?
May 27 20:23:07 <ianweller> do we need to poll the list more?
May 27 20:23:12 <ianweller> do we need to hit ianweller for suggesting a
May 27 20:23:15 * fbijlsma has quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
May 27 20:23:20 <ke4qqq> yes to hitting you
May 27 20:23:31 <ke4qqq> I'll be selling tickets for that at FAD
May 27 20:23:32 <joat> is a reason needed?
May 27 20:23:37 <Sparks> Well, I guess my concern is... does anyone have
any problems/concerns with the license change?
May 27 20:23:41 <laubersm> I didn't see the list email... but I am behind
May 27 20:23:43 <ianweller> ke4qqq: oh so *that's* how you're paying for me
May 27 20:23:46 <laubersm> I am cool with CC
May 27 20:23:51 * dychen_
(n=dingyich d122-109-13-56 rdl15 qld optusnet com au) has joined
May 27 20:23:59 <ke4qqq> no one has voiced any opposition
May 27 20:24:02 <laubersm> and I don't know much about what we are using so
I do not really know the differences
May 27 20:24:12 <ke4qqq> I would like us to do some prep before we announce.
May 27 20:24:25 <ianweller> i would like us to talk to CC and get some hype
May 27 20:24:31 <ianweller> they'd love to, they've been doing it for lots
May 27 20:24:39 <ke4qqq> ie, get marketing involved in the announcement -
have a document explaining the differences and benefits and how it makes us
May 27 20:24:51 * ianweller can ping somebody in CC's irc channel if need be
May 27 20:24:57 <Sparks> ke4qqq: well, jjmcd keeps asking why
May 27 20:25:21 <ke4qqq> thats not opposition though
May 27 20:25:21 * jjmcd has no problem, just wants to make sure we
understand what we are doing
May 27 20:25:38 * jjmcd has a hard time getting excited about this sort of
May 27 20:25:59 <Sparks> :)
May 27 20:26:34 <jjmcd> Much easier to get worked up over whether it makes
sense to virtualize a class
May 27 20:26:41 <Sparks> Okay... I'm going to let quaid move forward on
this. I think we want to run the specifics by RHLegal and let them give us
a thumbs up
May 27 20:26:59 * pfrields2 (n=pfrields fedora/stickster) has joined
May 27 20:27:09 <ke4qqq> and pick a specific license
May 27 20:27:27 <rudi> Sparks -- when legal comes up with a suitable licence
text, we'll need to incorporate that into the Fedora brand package for
May 27 20:27:27 <jjmcd> The whole bit about getting marketing involved ahead
of time - well placed leaks etc. seems like a good move
May 27 20:27:49 <Sparks> rudi: well... most of that is already incorporated
in the CC license
May 27 20:28:00 <ke4qqq> who is the docs fwn beat writer?
May 27 20:28:14 <rudi> ie, to replace
May 27 20:28:25 <Sparks> rudi: Yes
May 27 20:29:00 <Sparks> Okay... Anything else on this topic?
May 27 20:29:18 <ke4qqq> we need to
May 27 20:29:19 * pfrields2 comes in late
May 27 20:29:21 <ke4qqq> create a feature page
May 27 20:29:31 <jjmcd> Enjoy your cake?
May 27 20:29:38 * rayvd has quit (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
May 27 20:29:47 <Sparks> ke4qqq: This will more than likely affect F12
May 27 20:29:50 <Sparks> ke4qqq: but yes
May 27 20:30:00 <Sparks> pfrields2: I'm sorry, do I know you?
May 27 20:30:01 <ke4qqq> right that's what I am talking about
May 27 20:30:10 <pfrields2> Just some random guy....
May 27 20:30:14 <Sparks> ke4qqq: So was that you volunteering?
May 27 20:30:45 <jjmcd> ke4qqq already has the practice
May 27 20:30:49 <ke4qqq> yeah I can do that
May 27 20:30:51 <ke4qqq> I do?
May 27 20:30:54 <Sparks> Cool
May 27 20:31:10 <jjmcd> I was thinking about the fwn beat
May 27 20:31:14 <ke4qqq> I will wait til after we make noise though
May 27 20:31:33 <ke4qqq> and this should all be post f12
May 27 20:31:36 <ke4qqq> IMO
May 27 20:31:49 <pfrields2> Why do we need to wait until after F12?
May 27 20:31:58 <jjmcd> I thought it was going to be an F12 feature
May 27 20:32:12 <ke4qqq> sorry meant f11
May 27 20:32:23 <jjmcd> yeah
May 27 20:32:24 <pfrields2> Ah, okey doke
May 27 20:32:34 <Sparks> individual guides should change over as necessary
May 27 20:32:36 <pfrields2> When we think ahead, we *really* think ahead ;-)
May 27 20:32:44 <ke4qqq> lol yeah
May 27 20:32:49 * quaid arrives tardy, sry
May 27 20:33:04 <ke4qqq> it is ok quaid we assigned you work
May 27 20:33:04 <jjmcd> back from marketing farmers, eh?
May 27 20:33:05 <ke4qqq> :)
May 27 20:33:10 <Sparks> quaid: Anything you want to add on the licensing
May 27 20:33:23 <pfrields2> Sorry I missed the background -- my home server
that logs the conversations is wedged right now
May 27 20:33:37 <quaid> nothing to add
May 27 20:33:39 <pfrields2> What are the action items, and who's responsible
May 27 20:34:10 <Sparks> quaid: So we like the idea... what's next?
May 27 20:34:12 <ke4qqq> pfrields2: quaid: to give you a quick rundown
May 27 20:34:22 <pfrields2> ke4qqq: Thanks :-)
May 27 20:34:55 <ke4qqq> we want to coordinate with marketing, and hopefully
CC after getting a specific instance of the cc-by-sa chosen by rhlegal
May 27 20:35:22 <ke4qqq> and hopefully work to keep rh docs from moving to
the same license by at least a month so fp.o gets some fame separate from RH
May 27 20:35:39 <ke4qqq> and we are going to let quaid drive the process
May 27 20:35:51 <ke4qqq> since there is so much interaction with rhlegal and
May 27 20:36:07 <ke4qqq> ohhh and I'm responsible for the feature page
May 27 20:36:18 * ianweller can take care of talking to CC
May 27 20:36:32 * quaid just read his buffer
May 27 20:36:48 <quaid> oh, good, feature sounds fine
May 27 20:37:16 <pfrields2> And we're talking to CC with the specific
purpose of having them spread the news that the Fedora Project is adopting a
CC license for docs and wiki?
May 27 20:37:17 <quaid> ianweller: ok, work with themayor because he knows
cats there, too, and that way it gets on the Marketing agenda
May 27 20:37:24 <quaid> pfrields2: yeppers
May 27 20:37:31 <ke4qqq> and essentially we are going to document how this
makes us more free
May 27 20:37:47 <quaid> hmm, going to need to establish that as a fact,
that's for sure :)
May 27 20:38:24 <quaid> jjmcd: did you want to cover the why here for the
May 27 20:38:35 <quaid> otherwise, I think what was said on list is a fairly
good set of reasons
May 27 20:38:40 <jjmcd> Why? Downstream ;-)
May 27 20:38:58 <jjmcd> I think we do need to move fairly quickly tho
May 27 20:39:12 <jjmcd> seems like there was some date in the fall when all
this becomes a lot hader
May 27 20:39:34 <quaid> hmm, OK
May 27 20:39:43 <quaid> it's too late for the F11 release packages
May 27 20:39:48 <quaid> right?
May 27 20:39:49 <jjmcd> As I understand it, this makes it easier for folks
who don't have the identical license to use our stuff
May 27 20:39:52 <pfrields2> jjmcd: *: OPL forces downstream to use OPL only,
where CC-BY-SA allows you to use any like-termed license, right?
May 27 20:40:02 <jjmcd> That is my understanding
May 27 20:40:13 * pfrields2 is sure there's a bunch of legal stuff there
that Mr. Fontana will help us with.
May 27 20:40:42 <ianweller> quaid: wayyyyyy too late for F11, yeah
May 27 20:40:45 <ke4qqq> yeah I think we want Fontana to create the bullet
point of the improvments
May 27 20:40:55 <jjmcd> quaid, the current opl allows us to change to cc
easily, up until some date I think sept
May 27 20:41:09 <pfrields2> jjmcd: ?
May 27 20:41:12 <ianweller> hmm?
May 27 20:41:15 <pfrields2> Are you sure you're not thinking of the GNU FDL?
May 27 20:41:31 <pfrields2> That's a very different license, and they
engineered some leeway for switching IIRC.
May 27 20:41:38 <ianweller> they did, for wikipedia.
May 27 20:41:41 <pfrields2> Right.
May 27 20:41:41 <jjmcd> I thought it was OPL, but then, I don't really get
all geeked by this legal stuff
May 27 20:42:01 <quaid> yeah, that's GFDL
May 27 20:42:05 <quaid> http://opencontent.org/blog/archives/329
May 27 20:42:20 <quaid> that is a fairly cogent argument about why to use
the CC from the author of the OPL.
May 27 20:42:30 <quaid> zoglesby++ for the reference :)
May 27 20:42:33 <ianweller> well, what more do we need then :)
May 27 20:42:37 <pfrields2> Superb.
May 27 20:42:37 <Jeff_S> quaid: thanks, I was just looking for that post! :)
May 27 20:42:44 * linuxguru (n=linuxgur unaffiliated/linuxguru) has joined
May 27 20:43:15 <quaid> ok, then, I think we have all the parts assigned,
May 27 20:43:24 <Sparks> cool
May 27 20:43:31 <Sparks> quaid: let me know if I can help you with this
May 27 20:43:38 <quaid> I've got the legal + content services + bug reports
to the publican Fedora package (when that happens)
May 27 20:43:54 <quaid> ianweller will talk to CC and work with themayor on
May 27 20:44:00 <quaid> ke4qqq has the feature page
May 27 20:44:02 <quaid> anything else?
May 27 20:44:06 <quaid> if not, then away we go ...
May 27 20:44:24 <Sparks> +1
May 27 20:44:33 * ianweller watches quaid teleport away, molecule by
May 27 20:44:44 <Sparks> sparkly
May 27 20:44:52 <Sparks> okay... anything else on this topic?
May 27 20:44:56 <ianweller> no
May 27 20:45:46 * quaid done
May 27 20:45:49 * Sparks has changed the topic to: Docs Project -
[[Release_Announcement_for_F11 | Release Announcement]]
May 27 20:45:50 <pfrields2> disco
May 27 20:45:55 <Sparks> groovy
May 27 20:46:00 * quaid emails that result to the list, btw
May 27 20:46:06 <Sparks> quaid: Thanks
May 27 20:46:29 <Sparks> Okay... so I think the announcement is ready to go.
May 27 20:46:36 <Sparks> Just need final eyes on it
May 27 20:47:07 * pfrields2 has quit ("Quit")
May 27 20:47:12 <quaid> ruh roh
May 27 20:47:17 <quaid> is he going to come back?
May 27 20:47:20 <jjmcd> Looks pretty good. Most of ianweller's edits were
good catches, one or two I would noodle on a bit
May 27 20:47:40 * quaid reloads and gives a last read
May 27 20:47:49 <ianweller> there's a reason the newspaper staff at my
school put me on as copy editor
May 27 20:47:52 <ianweller> ;)
May 27 20:47:57 <quaid> oooh, didn't know that
May 27 20:48:01 * quaid makes a mental note
May 27 20:48:41 <jjmcd> things like its and it's I tend to gloss over, tough
to catch those. The commas, tho, can't believe those didn't junp out at me
May 27 20:48:44 * stickster_afk is now known as stickster
May 27 20:48:48 * stickster is now known as stickster_afk
May 27 20:49:11 <ianweller> jjmcd: i didn't focus too much on the commas
May 27 20:49:18 <ianweller> i should do another read-through to double check
May 27 20:49:22 <jjmcd> you caught a few blatant ones
May 27 20:49:27 <ianweller> yeah
May 27 20:49:30 <stickster_afk> I'm here
May 27 20:49:41 <jjmcd> we thought you ODed on cake
May 27 20:49:42 <stickster_afk> Switched systems and this one took a while
to get past the lag
May 27 20:49:46 * stickster_afk is now known as stickster
May 27 20:49:54 <ianweller> the cake is a lie
May 27 20:50:21 <Sparks> stickster: I guess we need your thumbs up on it?
May 27 20:50:26 * jjmcd notices stickster didn't bring us any
May 27 20:50:47 <stickster> Hm, there seem to be some repeated adverbs...
May 27 20:50:58 <ke4qqq> ohhh yeah - guess blessing of Fedora Board would be
May 27 20:51:07 <stickster> ke4qqq: Nah, this one I can handle on my own.
May 27 20:51:16 <ke4qqq> ohhhh ignore me - missed the jump to release
May 27 20:51:32 <stickster> I think the last paragraphs need a little more
May 27 20:51:54 <jjmcd> Zebra or gazelle?
May 27 20:51:58 <stickster> Just to keep this story setup rolling, and to
keep it from becoming simply a list of features
May 27 20:52:05 <stickster> jjmcd: Dunno, it all tastes like chicken to me
May 27 20:52:17 <stickster> I'll play with it a bit
May 27 20:52:28 * stickster is a harsh creative writing teacher, apparently
May 27 20:53:41 <stickster> go ahead
May 27 20:54:24 <Sparks> Okay... I'll put this in stickster's hands and
follow up with him later. This has to be out the door by Friday
May 27 20:54:40 <Sparks> Anything else on this topic?
May 27 20:55:04 * Sparks has changed the topic to: Docs Project - Status on
Release Notes <-- ryanlerch & jjmcd
May 27 20:55:08 <Sparks> jjmcd: Where are we?
May 27 20:55:22 <jjmcd> I just did most of a test build,
May 27 20:55:38 <quaid> jjmcd++
May 27 20:55:44 <jjmcd> git is preventing me from doing it all automatically
as I would like - I need to poke in the middle a bit
May 27 20:55:55 <jjmcd> But I didn't get done b4 meeting
May 27 20:56:17 <jjmcd> I need to check on ohhh, it sidappeared
May 27 20:56:41 <jjmcd> There was something there that I wasn't sure about
but perhaps volume - need to check
May 27 20:56:45 <ianweller> < jjmcd> my machine is on fire, this can't be
May 27 20:56:46 <ianweller> ;)
May 27 20:56:46 <jjmcd> but i think it is in there
May 27 20:57:06 <jjmcd> Tell ya what, that msgmerge sure puts it to work
May 27 20:57:18 <ianweller> mmhmm
May 27 20:57:25 <jjmcd> Hopefully I'll do a test install yet tonight
May 27 20:57:55 <jjmcd> I've lost track of what we need when tho
May 27 20:58:06 <Sparks> We need to button it all up, now.
May 27 20:58:21 <jjmcd> So, RPM and web both?
May 27 20:58:25 <stickster>
May 27 20:58:53 <Sparks> jjmcd: I think so
May 27 20:59:38 <jjmcd> OK, we'll just do it then
May 27 20:59:41 <Sparks> jjmcd: Also, were you able to copy the files over
from /f11preview to /f11 on docs.fp.o?
May 27 21:00:08 <jjmcd> No, I was working on the build. You want the
preview on the web? I thought that;s where the latest went
May 27 21:00:33 <Sparks> It's already on the web
May 27 21:00:54 <jjmcd> yes, but I didn't think we wanted to call the
preview the GA
May 27 21:01:00 <ke4qqq> jjmcd: so the background there is that QA
complained about pointing people to a location that isn't where the release
notes will be at release
May 27 21:01:19 <stickster> ke4qqq: exactly
May 27 21:01:21 <ke4qqq> ie, they point people to f11preview now, and will
have to change that
May 27 21:01:21 <Sparks> but we should use /f# and not anything else so
other people can plan their links
May 27 21:01:31 <jjmcd> OK, so you want to have something there, even if it
will change in a day or so
May 27 21:01:37 <Sparks> yes
May 27 21:01:45 <jjmcd> K, got that
May 27 21:01:51 <Sparks> jjmcd: do the quaid mantra... release early,
May 27 21:01:55 * spoleeba has quit ("Leaving")
May 27 21:01:58 <ke4qqq> and that needs to be codified as our practices
May 27 21:01:58 <jjmcd> :-)
May 27 21:01:58 <stickster> jjmcd: Sparks: I can probably do the CVS moving
there. CVS sucks for this, because there's no real "move" command
May 27 21:02:09 <stickster> But it sounds like jjmcd has his hands full
May 27 21:02:13 <jjmcd> cool that would help
May 27 21:02:26 <jjmcd> That way I can work on the final instead of pissing
May 27 21:02:42 <Sparks> stickster: Yeah, I was going to do it but the only
thing I would be able to do is download everything, copy it over, and the
May 27 21:02:59 <stickster> Sparks: Well, that's pretty much the *only* way
to do it afaik.
May 27 21:03:02 <Sparks> which I can do...
May 27 21:03:08 <jjmcd> Sparks: there is a php that needs editing, too
May 27 21:03:21 <stickster> You have to 'cp' locally, then 'cvs add' all the
new stuff, and 'cvs rm' all the old stuff
May 27 21:03:34 <Sparks> jjmcd: yes... and we were going to talk to infra
about doing a redirect
May 27 21:03:34 <stickster> Also, we need Infrastructure to make a redirect
for f11preview -> f11 there.
May 27 21:03:39 <stickster> *jinx!
May 27 21:03:44 <jjmcd> ahhhh good plan
May 27 21:03:45 <Sparks> ha!
May 27 21:03:52 <Sparks> yeah, what stickster said
May 27 21:05:00 * ricky would be happy to get that after dinner :-)
May 27 21:05:36 <stickster> Sparks: jjmcd: ke4qqq: I think we should do the
same with that 'f10preview' folder -- nix it and redirect or rewrite to
May 27 21:05:37 <Sparks> stickster: so you are going to move the files?
May 27 21:05:39 <stickster> Sparks: Yes
May 27 21:05:44 <Sparks> yes
May 27 21:05:46 <Sparks> okay, thanks
May 27 21:05:58 <stickster> The f10preview is easier, I'm just going to nuke
it after the redirect exists.
May 27 21:06:07 <ke4qqq> yes - but better question - how do codify this so
that we don't repeat the same thing w/ f12
May 27 21:06:23 <stickster> ke4qqq: That sounds like a perfect job for
May 27 21:06:34 <jjmcd> will it be the same if we have zikula?
May 27 21:06:49 <stickster> jjmcd: Apples to oranges, really.
May 27 21:07:03 <ke4qqq> but the principle is the same
May 27 21:07:07 <ke4qqq> just diff. mechanism
May 27 21:07:08 <stickster> And certainly with Zikula publishing and moving
content is easier.
May 27 21:07:14 <jjmcd> I assume 12 will be a while new experience
May 27 21:07:21 <jjmcd> s/while/whole
May 27 21:07:24 <Sparks> Yeah, I'll work on that
May 27 21:07:30 <stickster> No matter what you guys use, you'll want to have
your processes available for new people to learn.
May 27 21:07:39 <jjmcd> yep
May 27 21:07:54 <jjmcd> bcotton is probably wondering what we are going on
May 27 21:08:18 * bcotton is understanding about 40% of what's going on :-)
May 27 21:08:45 <stickster> bcotton: Essentially, we have docs published
right now, at a URL that we really don't want
May 27 21:09:11 * ke4qqq needs to step away for a bit
May 27 21:09:15 <stickster> So we're just discussing how to (1) move them,
(2) make sure the public that clicks on that old URL gets sent to the new
content, and (3) we don't do it again :-)
May 27 21:09:58 <bcotton> so i guess my question would be why do we have
them in a place we dont want
May 27 21:10:22 <Sparks> because no one wrote the standard on how to do
it... until tonight
May 27 21:10:35 <bcotton> ah, well that makes sense then :-)
May 27 21:10:39 <stickster> bcotton: The rule with open source is, it's OK
to make a mistake
May 27 21:10:49 <stickster> As long as you are open about it, and fix it :-)
May 27 21:10:51 <jjmcd> And we are the experts
May 27 21:10:55 <jjmcd> at making mistakes
May 27 21:11:03 <stickster> Fail faster, recover faster!
May 27 21:11:41 <bcotton> the only way to learn is to break things and have
to get them working again
May 27 21:12:23 * Sparks notes a commit for /f11 has occurred
May 27 21:12:34 <stickster> All right, get ready for a mail storm to
May 27 21:12:55 <Sparks> Yikes
May 27 21:13:11 * Sparks is glad those messages go directly into a folder
that I never look at
May 27 21:13:19 * jjmcd has to write some tickets against that sometime
May 27 21:13:38 <jjmcd> It can be real hard to figure out what is getting
May 27 21:13:43 <stickster> OK, I'm going to do all the 'cvs add' stuff now.
May 27 21:13:47 <stickster> Then commit.
May 27 21:14:03 <stickster> We'll do the 'cvs rm' on f11preview/ *after* we
get the redirect/rewrite stuff done from Infrastructure.
May 27 21:14:15 <stickster> That way there's no point where URLs will break
May 27 21:14:30 <Sparks> stickster: Okay. I'll file a ticket as soon as
May 27 21:14:35 * quaid has to check out, later
May 27 21:14:41 <Sparks> quaid: see ya
May 27 21:14:47 <stickster> Sparks: super
May 27 21:17:23 <Sparks> Okay... anything else?
May 27 21:19:23 <jjmcd> bcotton, you might find
May 27 21:19:43 * stickster all good
May 27 21:20:01 <bcotton> jjmcd, thanks i'll look that over tonight
May 27 21:20:53 * Sparks has changed the topic to: Docs Project - All other
May 27 21:20:57 <Sparks> Anyone have anything else?
