13:08:25 <clokep_work> Linux nightly failed too. :(
13:09:31 <flo> why "too"?
13:11:05 <clokep_work> on commit did as well
13:11:09 <flo> ah, stupid mistake :(
13:11:28 <clokep_work> Although since there weren't any changes between them, I shouldn' be surprised. :)
13:12:15 <flo> If I had known the (stupid) cause of the failure, I could have pushed a fix yesterday evening :(
13:12:33 <flo> loading the full build log from my phone definitely wouldn't have worked ;)
13:14:04 <clokep_work> Bah, SVN gave me a message I was out of date...yet I was the last commit. That makes sense. :P
13:14:14 <clokep_work> Haha, the build logs are loooooooonnnnnngggg
13:15:14 <flo> I wish buildbot could provide a "tail" link :(
13:16:43 <clokep_work> That'd be ticket 32. ;) http://trac.buildbot.net/ticket/32
13:18:23 <flo> clokep_work: by the way, buildbot now supports gzipping the log on the server's disk, but not for the HTTP download, which is completely stupid...
13:20:49 <clokep_work> That's lame.
13:25:15 --> deOmega has joined #instantbird
13:26:03 <deOmega> good morning.  Last night's nightly is broken.  I am unable to  view any account when connected or get into anything
13:26:37 <clokep_work> deOmega: Are there errors in the error console? Please pastebin them.
13:26:50 <-- deOmega has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.3a1)
13:27:36 --> deOmega has joined #instantbird
13:27:54 <deOmega> sorry, was trying to minimize
13:30:39 <clokep_work> OK. :)
13:32:09 <deOmega> is there a way to find the previous night's nightly so one can revert to it if there is aproblem
13:32:41 <deOmega> Whenever i run into these problems... i have such problems getting sstarted
13:33:23 * flo upgrades to see if there'll be problems on the mac build too
13:33:26 <-- flo has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.3a2pre)
13:33:53 <clokep_work> deOmega: Every nightly is on the ftp site.
13:34:00 <clokep_work> http://ftp.instantbird.org or something.
13:35:28 --> Even has joined #instantbird
13:35:28 * ChanServ sets mode +o Even 
13:36:14 <clokep_work> deOmega: So last nights are at http://ftp.instantbird.org/instantbird/nightly/2011/02/2011-02-10-04-instantbird/
13:36:24 <clokep_work> s/last nights/two nights ago/
13:36:33 <deOmega> thank you   clokep.   I promise you guys i am not as dense as i may appear, but  the messenger overall  is  really not  my focus, so..  a lot of things really slips my memory/common sense.
13:37:33 <deOmega> Thank you clokep
13:38:08 --> flo has joined #instantbird
13:38:08 * ChanServ sets mode +qo flo flo 
13:38:38 <deOmega> does it work flo?
13:38:45 <flo> deOmega: I'm sorry :(
13:38:55 <flo> I've pushed a fix and requested a new nightlyy
13:39:19 <deOmega> ah, ok, thank you very much
13:39:21 <flo> it will need at least 2 hours before being ready
13:39:36 <clokep_work> deOmega: No problem, sorry if I seem terse -- at work.
13:40:48 <flo> I'm currently running my default profile on the debug build
13:40:51 <deOmega> Not at all, you are fine clokep.   Thanks flo
13:41:57 <clokep_work> flo must be confident. ;)
13:42:08 <flo> about what?
13:42:45 <-- deOmega has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.3a1)
13:43:57 <instantbot> Check-in: http://hg.instantbird.org/instantbird/rev/2a7327c35427 - Florian Quèze - Fix bustage caused by 4e8ee81dc102 (bug 118).
13:44:07 <clokep_work> Running your default profile.
13:45:56 <clokep_work> Ah, a packaging bustage again? We're not good at those. :-x
13:46:09 <flo> bah, it'll be interesting to see how many error messages I have in the terminals for things I've never noticed before :)
13:46:28 <flo> clokep_work: yeah, that's completely stupid. That's why I said I'm sorry :-S
13:50:59 <clokep_work> Mmhmm. I didn't notice either. :) What's next?
13:51:12 <clokep_work> Seems some people are interested in the alpha btw...at least on Twitter. ;)
13:51:13 <flo> filing bugs maybe
13:52:05 <clokep_work> flo: The Jabber code in libpurple has a separate subdirectory for google talk...are we actually using any of that code?
13:52:13 <flo> probably
13:52:25 <flo> I think the server announces itself as been a google server
13:53:32 <clokep_work> Hm. OK. Cause it seems on gtalk is just a raw override of jabber? But maybe there's more magic I don't understand.
13:54:02 * clokep_work had another question he forgets.
13:54:18 <flo> there's definitely some magic on the libpurple side ;)
13:57:23 <flo> this is the first part of the debug output I have in my terminal, when using the debug build with my default profile: http://pastebin.instantbird.com/564
13:57:36 <flo> (pastebin doesn't seem to accept longer pastes :-D)
13:58:47 --> deOmega has joined #instantbird
13:59:03 <flo> deOmega: welcome back ;)
13:59:25 <-- chrisccoulson has quit (Client exited)
14:00:00 <flo> the only warnings that I'm not used to seeing while running the debug build are:
14:00:00 <flo> Chrome file doesn't exist: /Users/florian/buildhg/obj-instantbird-dbg/mozilla/dist/InstantbirdDebug.app/Contents/MacOS/chrome/instantbird/content/branding/icon48.png
14:00:00 <flo> Chrome file doesn't exist: /Users/florian/buildhg/obj-instantbird-dbg/mozilla/dist/InstantbirdDebug.app/Contents/MacOS/chrome/toolkit/skin/classic/mozapps/update/warning.gif
14:00:09 <deOmega> thank you.    things are back to normal
14:00:32 <clokep_work> That's a lot of errors/warnings. :)
14:01:02 <flo> debug builds are slower ;)
14:01:34 <deOmega> I had a question but  the order in which to ask it has slipped my mind lol
14:02:03 <deOmega> I need a vacation.
14:02:49 <deOmega> heck....  flo...  in your slideshow or somewhere, you poiinted out that  when using messengers such as, say  MSN...
14:02:56 --> chrisccoulson has joined #instantbird
14:03:08 <deOmega> one does not know what happens to their message history
14:03:26 <flo> I said that about meebo.com, gmail.com and Facebook.com
14:03:44 <flo> but it's most likely true for MSN too. (just, my point was about messengers on websites)
14:03:46 <deOmega> ok, thank  you
14:05:24 <deOmega> OK,  I think in my mind i was thinking that somehow.. IB intercept these services ability to  hold yoru history and bring  it locally where the user controls it.  I am sure you  did not mean that, but I thik that was my impression
14:06:31 <flo> it's something we want to do someday
14:06:58 <deOmega> well, THAT would be ABSOLUTELY awesome.
14:07:09 <flo> unfortunately we can do it only if we are sure there's instantbird (or a compatible messenger using the same encryption technology) on both ends of the communication.
14:07:32 <deOmega> Ok
14:08:00 <flo> so the difficult part is to find a way to detect the Instantbird (or compatible messenger at the other end) without putting garbage in all conversations for other messengers
14:08:50 --> DetoritLibertyPenguin has joined #instantbird
14:09:20 <deOmega> That would certainly be another selling point for IB.. when that day comes.   Thank you.

14:10:08 <flo> deOmega: the technology for that already exists. One of our long term objectives is to make it usable for everybody :)
14:11:15 <-- DetoritLibertyPenguin has left #instantbird ()
14:11:35 <deOmega> I really appreciate the objective of making it  simple enough so that mom and pop can launch it and simply use it... but with  advance options under the hood.
14:12:17 <flo> I would like if it could not be an option, but just work for everybody whenever it's possible :)
14:12:55 --> DetoritLibertyPenguin has joined #instantbird
14:13:03 <-- DetoritLibertyPenguin has left #instantbird ()
14:13:10 <flo> I don't like options. Most people want to use the software, not play with dozens of checkboxes in a preference dialog :)

14:13:48 <deOmega> There  are some things that a messenger should simply do immediately after install.   So looking forward to reaching that objective
14:14:43 --> DetoritLibertyPenguin has joined #instantbird
14:14:47 <-- DetoritLibertyPenguin has quit (Quit: DetoritLibertyPenguin)
14:15:22 <deOmega> I believe that a hurdle may be.. what one thinks people may want  and  what is expected through years of familiarity with other messengers.
14:16:43 <deOmega> Anyway, thanks for the continuing work.  Have a great day all
14:16:54 <flo> have a great day and week-end :)

14:19:15 * clokep_work started implementing commands for IRC last night.
14:19:23 <flo> cool :)
14:20:28 <clokep_work> How do you access the help string btw?
14:20:32 <-- igorko has quit (Quit: Instantbird 0.3a2pre)
14:21:17 <-- Ornthalas has quit (Quit: KTHXBYE)
14:25:43 * flo just added https://addons.instantbird.org/en-US/instantbird/addon/265/
14:25:57 <flo> clokep_work: do you mean programatically, or from the UI?
14:26:10 <flo> from the UI you don't :-P
14:26:43 <flo> but I guess it could be useful if we ever provide completion to be able to have a tooltip explaining the point of the command, and its arguments
14:26:58 <clokep_work> OK. So it's not important if I include it? ;)
14:35:25 <flo> bah... :)
14:36:02 <clokep_work> Can we make a /help command that looks them up? Isn't that what chatzilla does?
14:36:19 <clokep_work> (i.e. /help raw would output "blah blah...this is a raw command")
14:36:58 <flo> so /help would provide the list of commands, and /help <command name> would provide the help of that command
14:37:14 <flo> and the help string would be in a system message in the conversation?
14:38:11 <clokep_work> Yes.
14:38:21 <clokep_work> It's like talking to instantbot! :)
14:38:23 <flo> that seems easy to do
14:38:39 <flo> not sure if it's something we need by default or as a nice add-on
14:38:51 <clokep_work> I assume /help would provide a list only for the current protocol.
14:38:57 <clokep_work> I'll file a bug, just so I don't forget.
14:39:13 <flo> s/current protocol/current conversation/ (it will include application global commands too)
14:39:28 <clokep_work> Yes, sorry. I mean current protocol + global. :)
14:39:59 <flo> if you've read the idl file you know that's easy to do anyway ;)
14:40:15 <clokep_work> Yes, just need to decide if it's the proper behavior. :)
14:40:45 * flo thinks filing a bug is the proper behavior

15:05:32 <flo> at least a few of them
15:05:56 <flo> especially if we consider that everything listed on the roadmap is either blocking or wanted, and has likely several dependencies
15:08:48 <clokep_work> Right, those dependencies. ;)
