10:55:37 <instantbot> New Instantbird (UI) bug 1273 filed by aletheia2@fastmail.fm.
10:55:38 <instantbot> aletheia2@fastmail.fm requested review from clokep@gmail.com for attachment 1174 on bug 1273.
10:55:39 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1273 min, --, ---, nobody, NEW, Remove *** from Bubbles action messages
10:56:15 <aleth> most trivial patch ever ;)
10:56:43 <flo> I think the resolution is INVALID though ;)
10:56:52 <aleth> I don't mind
10:57:17 <flo> as there's no clearly identified problem you are trying to solve
10:57:29 <aleth> Just removed some minor Ugly for my own benefit ;)
10:58:05 <aleth> No problem, mere aesthetics, so opinions will differ
10:58:13 <flo> if there was something to change there, I would say the problem is that the current way it's displayed is too easy to spoof
10:58:44 <aleth> But does that matter? It's just the sender talking, one way or another
10:58:55 <flo> if we could display the name like it's displayed in the top-left corner of the bubble, that would be better I think
10:59:02 <Mic> *** /Flo does an action in one of Mic's bubbles/ ?
10:59:37 <flo> Mic: yeah, but in a protocol that supports HTML, so that you don't have these obvious / / ;)
10:59:58 <Mic> This should have been /italics/ 
11:00:01 <flo> Mic: and with a nick showing in the same color ;)
11:00:09 <aleth> heh
11:00:16 <flo> Mic: it was italic, but that doesn't remove the slashes
11:00:18 <Mic> Oh, it was .. I thought we removed the slashes and stuff then?
11:00:39 <Mic> Same for _underline_ and *bold* , most likely?
11:00:55 <Mic> Good to know. I guess italics aren't that important then ;)
11:02:42 <aleth> Kopete has an Action.html/NextAction.html pair
11:02:52 <aleth> if one wanted to take it that far...
11:03:30 <flo> is it useful?
11:03:43 <flo> I think we added something in Info.plist and decided at the time that it was enough
11:03:55 <flo> (although it's possible we were wrong :))
11:04:39 <aleth> It kind of implies actions being outside message bubbles. I think it's unnecessary.
11:05:28 <flo> it doesn't imply it very clearly. It doesn't say you can group NextAction with Incoming/Content.html
11:05:32 <Mic> Are actions something that should be in the speech bubble?
11:05:37 <flo> also, what about the difference between ActionContent and ActionContext ?
11:06:27 <aleth> They have a difference? I don't remember exactly their modification 
11:06:56 <flo> aleth: I think Kopete doesn't care because they don't support Context at all
11:07:44 <aleth> I think the current way is fine, just that the *** looked clunky...
11:10:28 <Mic> flo: I think Kopete's %senderColor{n}% wouldn't help us with Bubbles since we look up the lightness in our table and don't scale it up or down independently from the hue.
11:11:34 <flo> but isn't the look up table used to just improve readability for some colors?
11:11:43 <flo> if so, it could be included in the senderColor algorithm
11:14:38 <-- aleth has quit (Quit: Instantbird 1.2a1pre)
11:14:40 --> aleth has joined #instantbird
11:14:40 * ChanServ sets mode +h aleth 
11:15:18 <Mic> It is used to calculate the color of the nickname, the background behind the nickname and the bubble borders. I'm not what you mean by /include in the senderColor algorithm/. The senderColor algorithm returns exactly one color for a given nick.
11:15:35 <Mic> *I'm not sure
11:15:55 <flo> you can change N ;)
11:16:13 <aleth> It's also Bubbles-specific, isn't it? So why shouldn't it be in Bubbles? Maybe the previous idea of providing HSL values is more general
11:16:42 <flo> aleth: I think Bubble is just trying to generate a set of colors that go well together
11:16:54 <flo> I don't see why the algorithm for that would be Bubble specific
11:17:12 <Mic> flo: that's what I think too, but not every theme author has to agree on that ;)
11:17:41 <flo> that's fine, they can file bugs; I can resolve them as INVALID :-P.
11:18:11 <flo> but I'll wait a day or two and ask a question or two before doing that, so as to show we are listening :-P
11:18:43 * flo is looking at the "Add Buddy" thing for JS-XMPP
11:19:22 <flo> didn't we used to have a canAddBuddy flag or something similar to tell the UI that Facebook Chat accounts can't add buddies?
11:19:29 <-- aleth has quit (Quit: Instantbird 1.2a1pre)
11:19:30 --> aleth has joined #instantbird
11:19:30 * ChanServ sets mode +h aleth 
11:31:36 <Mic> OK, I'll think about this senderColor{N} thing again :)

11:34:48 --> clokep has joined #instantbird
11:34:49 * ChanServ sets mode +o clokep 
11:41:02 <clokep> aleth: That patch looks OK...but I agree with flo it might be better to actually restyle what an action is instead of just removing the ***.
11:41:18 <clokep> Maybe we should have one of those bubbles that like BLAM or KABOOM would be in in comics? :P
11:41:54 * flo thinks we should change the bubble appearance in the halloween builds :-P
11:43:14 <clokep> To be...scary? :P
11:43:53 <flo> adding a "powered by libpurple" text would be enough for that :-P
11:44:11 <flo> I think we already have it all the time in the about dialog though
11:47:51 <aleth> yes, that was great :)
11:48:03 <flo> what?
11:48:03 <aleth> (the halloween build that is)
11:48:07 <flo> ah
11:48:23 <flo> we added that several years ago :-D
11:55:43 <-- MadWookiee has quit (Ping timeout)
11:56:45 * clokep is debating uploading a new IRC patch...
11:56:58 <flo> what are the pros and cons?
11:57:27 <clokep> Con: I don't remember when it was last tested nor how deeply I tested it. ;)
11:57:44 <clokep> Which leans me heavily toward no.

12:55:56 <clokep_work> Down to 79 UNCONFIRMED. ;)
12:56:15 <aleth> :)
12:56:17 <aleth> clokep_work: I'd only confirm it after testing to see if it actually looks better with contacts list-like styling. But I'm not sure the colour is the real issue, maybe it has to be considered within the larger question "what can I do with a selected nick"
13:03:47 <Mic> hmm, how do you start a private chat using the keyboard from the participants list?
13:03:54 <Mic> Enter doesn't seem to work
13:06:20 <aleth> Mic: That's not good, but I suspect one would use a / command anyway
13:09:01 <clokep_work> Mic: I think enter or space SHOULD work.
13:09:09 <clokep_work> I would check in 1.1 if they don't. :-/
13:10:14 <Mic> Space is more for selecting things in my opinion but Enter should definitely work imo
13:10:45 <clokep_work> I thought it did. :-/
13:11:50 <Mic> I don't have 1.1 at hand but it doesn't work in 1.0 either for me.
13:12:55 <Mic> Can someone confirm that this isn't a Mic-only problem? ;)
13:13:35 <aleth> Yes

13:17:27 <flo> I think 1146 can be confirmed, as it's right that something is inconsistent there.
13:17:57 <flo> I'm not sure I would like the proposed solution on Mac, but on Windows were both background are white, it would make some sense :)
13:18:26 <instantbot> New Instantbird (UI) bug 1274 filed by benediktp@ymail.com.
13:18:29 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1274 nor, --, ---, nobody, NEW, Pressing "Enter" on a participant in the list doesn't start a private chat
13:20:20 <clokep_work> Mic: Ah, I bet I was thinking that middle clicking on them works.
13:22:33 <Mic> flo: highlighted items on Windows are usually in shades of blue
13:22:39 <flo> I think 1043 (localized AIO) is WONTFIX
13:23:15 <flo> iirc we purposefully disabled the localization because it was a gettext mess with lots of hardcoded "Firefox" and "Mozilla" inside the strings
13:23:31 <flo> and even AIO has a pretty poor localization.

13:27:05 <flo> the trivial fix for bug 1178 is to backout bug 772, right?
13:27:08 * clokep_work is being heartless in his WONTFIX today.

13:27:38 <clokep_work> Yes, and the fix to bug 772.
13:27:48 <flo> ah, comment 1 says it's not a regression from 772 :-S
13:28:09 <clokep_work> Oh. :(
13:28:26 <clokep_work> Oh, wait. It's actually a regression between 1.0 and 1.1 I believe.
13:28:28 <flo> but you don't say why in that comment
13:28:57 <clokep_work> Because I've seen it in Instantbird 1.1, which didn't have the patch for bug 772.
13:30:46 <flo> clokep_work: "Sorry to mark a bunch of your bugs as WONTFIX all at once deOmega! We do love your ideas. :)" that doesn't seem as heartless has you pretended a few minutes ago ;).

13:31:20 <flo> deOmega1: Good morning :)
13:31:39 <deOmega1> good morning flo :)
13:32:06 <flo> heh, bug 703 looks like something I was asked to do for Thunderbird
13:32:06 <deOmega1> good morning clokep.  I actually came in because of your comment. :)

13:32:43 <deOmega1> NO, i am not taking it personally at all and  I am pleased to see that you are closing off some of those
13:33:09 <deOmega1> I know you guys are working eally hard on this project and I do appreciate it
13:33:28 <deOmega1> But you will notice that it has been a while since you have seen me file abug
13:33:58 <clokep_work> Yes, it has been.
13:34:10 <clokep_work> Been trying to make sure we close things off instead of leaving them hanging. :(
13:35:02 <clokep_work> Unfortunately I'm stepping away from my desk. Will be back in a bit.
13:35:16 <flo> bug 713 seems like a perfect candidate for INCOMPLETE ;)
13:35:19 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=713 nor, --, ---, nobody, UNCO, Text box missing left and right padding
13:36:01 <deOmega1> reason is.. I  think it is likely a matter of a few things...  the project is too young for some ideas, because some ideas may just seem to not make sense at this stage,  because for one, there are other priorities.... kinda like a a basketball star for an autograph in the middle of a game.. while he is on the court.
13:36:38 <instantbot> florian@instantbird.org set the Resolution field on bug 1092 to WONTFIX.
13:36:43 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1092 nor, --, ---, nobody, RESO WONTFIX, Instantbird-1.1 crashes on PPC Mac 10.4.11 system with "Symbol not found: _open$UNIX2003"
13:37:17 <flo> deOmega1: from my point of view, there's nothing wrong with discussing ideas several years before we are ready to implement them
13:37:18 <deOmega1> BUt i have often seen a lot of dialogs where many suggestions are received as unnecessary because the  developers themselves do not use them, and so, it may be best done as an addon, if at all
13:38:12 <deOmega1> One dialog between .. i forgot the chap's name, but he is  or was working on twitter and emailed me at some point about a blog...
13:38:13 <flo> lots of things that arrived only with 1.0 (or even are still being worked on now) were planned before 0.1 was released :)
13:39:11 <deOmega1> but i saw that dialog  between  you guys and him at onepoint and it really sobered my expectations.. I think he g actually got upset and left the rooom during teh discussion (mayeb he can remember that)
13:39:32 <deOmega1> BUt that was my wake-up and I realize I need to give this project time to find its way
13:39:46 <flo> I've no idea of what you are talking about
13:40:52 <deOmega1> I think it was ecaron
13:41:05 <-- Mic has quit (Quit: Instantbird 1.2a1pre)
13:41:56 <flo> aaaah!
13:42:12 <flo> now I can reread what you just said and make sense of at least half of it
13:42:28 <flo> I first read "working on twitter" as "was an employee of twitter.com" ;)
13:42:30 <deOmega1> :)
13:43:03 <deOmega1> ah,  i was struggling to remember the name as I typed
13:44:05 <flo> I would be curious to know what we said exactly that "sobered your expectations"
13:46:02 <clokep_work> Can you give any examples of things that we feel are unnecessary because we don't use them? Just to talk a little less vaguely.
13:46:04 <flo> I see more and more frequently random nicks I don't know with "left the room (Quit: Instantbird 1.1)." in other channels :)
13:47:35 <flo> if we have upset ecaron, that may very well be with that "we need a new logo" discussion, where what a "better" logo means isn't the same for everybody :-/
13:50:52 <deOmega1> I cannot recall the details of that conversation, but what i walked away with was he was having the hardest time communicating a point, because it seemed that  you were steadfast with your related idea (which,  seemed unlike you guys from my perspective)
13:51:47 <flo> still too vague to make any sense out of it :-/
13:52:20 <flo> deOmega1: but please, if you feel we are doing something wrong, tell us immediately, not long enough after that nobody remembers ;).
13:52:39 <deOmega1> I am sorry, but that may be teh best I can do on that matter.
13:53:51 <deOmega1> You are right, I really should have said something sooner, because that was a pivotal point for me.  As a matetr of fact,  it was soon after that I   decided that maybe i am  spending too much time in teh room and too close to the situation and may need a different perspective.
13:54:13 <deOmega1> either case, I regret that I did not say anything at that point
13:54:40 <clokep_work> I have a feeling it was the logo conversation, which didn't seem to be going anywhere either (which is why I stepped away from that conversation).
13:55:43 <instantbot> florian@instantbird.org set the Resolution field on bug 890 to INCOMPLETE.
13:55:45 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=890 nor, --, ---, nobody, RESO INCOMPLETE, Startup failure, purpleICoreService.storageConnection throws NS_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY
13:56:20 <clokep_work> But yes, deOmega1 please let us know if you feel we're having an attitude problem (even about a particular point). Sometimes it's just a matter of someone that isn't part of the conversation saying "Hey, you guys need to step away and tlak about this in a few days."
13:56:27 <clokep_work> To make people realize they're being ridiculous, etc. etc.
13:56:54 * clokep_work will be back soon.
13:57:02 <flo> and sometimes we may just be having a bad day for whatever reason ;)
13:57:14 <flo> we are all humans :)
13:57:58 <deOmega1> indeed.   One of the things i have  realized though  and i know you guys have, because you often  put a smiley face when you make the comment, is basically routing requests to  the addons option.
13:58:38 <deOmega1> indeed, but this is also why i  thought that maybe  it is not the time for various suggestions until you guys have the product close to where you want it, because then,  you wil be more than happy to sign  autographs
13:59:05 <flo> I think I missed the connection between add-ons and autographs :)
13:59:22 <aleth> I think the logo discussion didn't go anywhere partly because the decision hasn't been made "We need a new logo for version X". That means it lacks focus and just goes round in circles as people occasionally add another design or two. Also, there is then nothing actionable for people like ecaron who were keen to build an improved website on top of that (if I remember right)
14:00:24 <deOmega1> ... the project is too young for some ideas, because some ideas may just seem to not make sense at this stage, because for one, there are other priorities.... kinda like a a basketball star for an autograph in the middle of a game.. while he is on the court.
14:00:47 <deOmega1> a: asking
14:00:49 <aleth> deOmega1: I think part of what maybe often doesn't come across well is that "add-on" isn't dismissive. It's more that including some feature in the core of IB is a high bar, because it potentially adds clutter for all those that don't need it.
14:00:50 <flo> aleth: changing the logo is a massive time investment. The logo is in dozens of places. There's no reason to do it until someone can provide something that feels way better than the existing one for almost everybody
14:01:54 <aleth> flo: I don't disagree with that, it's a huge effort. Apart from that I suspect it never happens unless one decides "we need a new logo and we are going to push until there is enough agreement".
14:01:58 <flo> deOmega1: the most important feature of Instantbird is that it's clutter free (as aleth has just mentioned). We try to have default values that work well for almost everybody, and as little preferences as possible.
14:02:19 <flo> deOmega1: we actually spend a lot of time think about how we can remove things that aren't as useful as they should be.
14:03:40 <flo> deOmega1: and add-ons are great because they let anybody customize his experience with the software without imposing clutter / experimental stuff that may not be stable on everybody else
14:04:21 <flo> deOmega1: and claiming that we say "this should be an add-on" because we (developers) wouldn't have a use for it is a bit unfair, when most of the things *I* want to experiment with for my own use are built as add-ons (at least first).
14:05:05 <deOmega1> have you ever considered or done an itemized list of core components, including suggestions, and  as a group or community,   eliminate what may not be considered necessary in the core?
14:05:14 <aleth> Yup, I think everyone who develops for IB probably has their little stable of add-ons ;)
14:05:52 <flo> aleth: the people who are in a position to spent the time to actually change the logo don't have the skills to create a logo, so it wouldn't make any sense for them to decide "we need a new logo".
14:05:54 <flo> *spend
14:07:22 <flo> deOmega1: I don't think such a list would drive much motivation. Neither to build it, nor to act upon it. We are not a company with managers deciding what the staff needs to do, just a bunch of volunteers each having our set of ideas, and enjoying when they go well together :)
14:09:15 <aleth> flo: And people who have (at least some) of those skills suggest a logo, usually incomplete work, and then receive very little feedback because there is no perceived urgency. They'll get a comment from random individuals maybe, but no idea of whether there is enough support for it to be worth their while to continue working on it. It's the mismatch that I'm talking about.
14:09:45 <flo> deOmega1: by the way, "too young" isn't really a comment I enjoy reading for a project I've been pushing forward for 4 years and a half ;). And I'm almost sure your point wasn't actually related in any way to the age of the project :)
14:10:29 <flo> aleth: any suggestion to improve that?
14:10:55 <aleth> deOmega1: I disagree with "too young" too. An "old" IB should not be heavier with tons of extra parameters...
14:12:13 <flo> when it will be old, we will start thinking that it should be rewritten from scratch ;). Wait, isn't this what we've been doing in bug 759 and with all that JS-proto stuff? :)

14:14:46 <aleth> flo: I feel I never saw the whole picture of what was being discussed when, so take this with a grain of salt. But when I look at the discussion in bug 1217, that could definitely be improved. If I imagine being one of the designers mentioned -  for starters they are not present in the discussion themselves.
14:14:49 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1217 enh, --, ---, nobody, UNCO, A new logo for Instantbird
14:15:02 <aleth> There are people talking via ecaron. Did they ever even get invited to #instantbird? To a "special weekly meeting" maybe? Would such a meeting be desired? 
14:16:12 <aleth> Also, one could probably reach a consensus at least as to which designs are not wanted, so they are not pursued further.
14:16:31 <flo> I don't think doing a post mortem of what happened in that specific case is a good idea without Eric being here to tell how things were from his point of view.
14:17:17 <aleth> True. That's just because you asked, and because that's all I saw of the process...
14:17:18 <flo> aleth: I think none were wanted, but for very different reasons, and that gave us no clear idea of what the next step could be.
14:17:37 <flo> I asked what you would no, not what went wrong :).
14:17:49 <flo> s/no/do/
14:18:11 <aleth> I did suggest what was noticeable by its absence ;)
14:18:13 <deOmega1> aleth: Old does not have to mean heavy,  I do not think that  is the right perception, and I am not saying old either but mature.
14:18:41 <aleth> deOmega1: Do you mean "there are features that have been wanted for ages that are still missing?"
14:18:48 <flo> mature is hard to define too :)
14:19:06 <flo> aleth: file transfer maybe? :-P
14:19:09 <deOmega1> flo: I am sorry if it sends that message, not my intent, as that would also show lack of appreciation for what I am using.
14:19:56 <flo> deOmega1: I didn't take it personally as I knew you weren't intending to sound aggressive. ;)
14:20:19 <aleth> deOmega1: It's more about trying to understand better what you think is missing that stops IB from being considered 'mature'. That would be useful to know
14:21:10 <flo> from my point of view, Instantbird will be mature, as a project, when I'll be able to take 2 months of vacations without anybody noticing a difference :)
14:22:34 <aleth> Nice definition :)
14:23:17 <flo> I'm almost sure this isn't what deOmega1 has in mind though :)
14:24:34 <deOmega1> aleth: You can answer that.  Users like myself have customized IB to where it works fine for us (or we would not be using it).   What you  should do is  install the  release of IB without any addons or tweaks, and see what  you are missing.  If you have not done so recently, do not assume you know what you will be missing,  give yourself the experience.  Additionally, have someone that uses another client, try out IB, without addons
14:25:35 <flo> deOmega1: ok.
14:26:05 <flo> I use Colorize, Hide Auto-Joins, Highlight, Nick Serv Killer, Show Nick, and Status Reminder.
14:26:41 <flo> I'm not sure Colorize still works, so I assume I wouldn't notice if it wasn't installed
14:26:52 <aleth> I tend to expect something to be missing in every software that I use, before I tweak it, and after :/
14:27:10 <flo> Hide Auto-joins is something I wouldn't want to live without, it hides that the auto-join feature is crappy.
14:27:29 <flo> I could live without highlight (I don't think it works well in current nightlies, by the way)
14:27:41 <aleth> Show Nick, Input History, Nickservkiller, Hide Autojoins, Toggle Participant List
14:27:43 <flo> Nick Serv Killer shouldn't be useful any more once JS-IRC lands and implements the same feature
14:27:55 <aleth> Agreed about Hide Autojoins
14:28:05 <flo> Show Nick is useful, I've been considering implementing it by default in a way that would be compatibile with all message themes (not easy).
14:28:12 <aleth> That should disappear once IRC accounts reconnect on rejoin
14:28:20 <flo> Status Reminder could be included by default, if people really wanted it.
14:28:52 <aleth> It's not bad that Show Nick is an add-on though - some people don't like colours
14:29:19 <deOmega1> When I stumbled upon IB years ago, I think  the most you could have done was  send a message successfully... and I was still excited by the fact that it was based on mozilla, but man, the spirit in the room was absolutely excited to the point of contagion.  When i think of where it was and where it was now, it  darn well seems like it should be considered complete, but  realize that this is basing it on where it was.
14:29:27 <flo> aleth: yeah, but I think the detection code should be in the core, and add span tags that message themes would then be free to theme however they want
14:30:02 <flo> deOmega1: trying Instantbird 0.1 again now is just funny :)
14:30:14 <deOmega1> USe it as is and realize that will be the avreage installer's experience
14:30:17 <flo> even 0.1.3, if you don't want to be that extreme
14:30:36 <flo> deOmega1: there's no such thing as an "average installer's experience"
14:30:45 <flo> we are all very different in the way we use software
14:30:59 <aleth> deOmega1: Also, lots of add-ons have become unnecessary just recently. Tab complete, Reply to nick, ...
14:31:27 <aleth> So prototyping via add-on does happen.
14:32:07 <flo> deOmega1: for example, the average user doesn't auto-join a dozen IRC channels ;)
14:32:26 <flo> (assuming that mythical average user exists, of course)
14:33:54 <aleth> The conversation about minimize/close behaviour yesterday also suggests there is no such thing...
14:33:55 <flo> deOmega1: "Additionally, have someone that uses another client, try out IB, without addons" I love doing that (when I can see the screen. Reading the feedback someone writes isn't as interesting as seeing what confused/disappointed/delighted the user)
14:34:42 <flo> deOmega1: I once saw someone using the contact list full screen. I think you tend to keep that window to a small size ;). 
14:34:51 <aleth> Yes. Btw that's why I liked your "I was confused on connecting to twitter" bug report
14:34:59 <aleth> It's good to know that
14:36:37 <deOmega1> be right there

15:23:16 <flo> hmm, I wonder why imIAccountBuddy isn't named prplIAccountBuddy
15:24:51 <clokep_work> flo; Highlight from hg works fine, just not the version on AIO.
15:25:42 <flo> what was the fix/issue?
15:26:42 <flo> the version I have installed already has this fix https://hg.instantbird.org/addons/rev/e6281ed3a17f
15:26:58 <aleth> flo: I think I had to manually fix Hide Autojoins too some while back (a path change), not sure if that's on AIO
15:27:23 <flo> aleth: https://hg.instantbird.org/addons/rev/e02aab0a21ab
15:27:33 <flo> we haven't pushed that on AIO because it would break it for 1.1 users
15:27:47 <aleth> Right, makes sense.
15:33:11 <clokep_work> I don't know.
15:33:18 <clokep_work> But I'm fairly certain it was working yesterday...
15:33:55 <flo> is it case sensitive?
15:34:13 <flo> I'm sure people have said "Instantbird" or "InstantBird" several times without it notifying me
15:34:24 <clokep_work> Ah. :(
15:34:32 <clokep_work> Sorry...I don't know if highlight is working.
15:34:38 <clokep_work> I was thinking of Colorize.
15:34:44 <flo> you confused it with show nick?
15:34:49 <flo> ah, colorize?
15:34:59 <flo> :)
15:35:02 <clokep_work> Makes IMs have colors like MUCs.
15:35:10 <clokep_work> I always confuse those three, yeah.
15:35:29 <flo> I can live without colorize
15:35:31 <clokep_work> I think adding spans for nicks and then styling them in the themes makes sense, yes.
15:35:38 <clokep_work> (I.e. Show Nick.)
15:35:45 <clokep_work> And Status Reminder should be in the core IMO too!
15:35:45 <flo> mostly because I rarely IM more than one person at once these days
15:36:39 <flo> ok... anybody can feel free to make a patch from it then :)
15:38:56 <aleth> Hmm, I think I prefer status reminder as an add-on, so you can turn if off ;)
15:39:21 <flo> aleth: do you need to turn it off?
15:39:31 <aleth> Well, I don't use it ;)
15:39:43 <flo> that doesn't mean it would be in your way
15:40:05 <aleth> A large red area is visually a bit distracting I find.
15:40:15 <flo> you are not supposed to talk while away :-P
15:40:44 <aleth> This may be true, but I think that's a little bit too much presuming how users behave ;)
15:40:47 <flo> aleth: but it's actually not distracting enough. After a few months (years? :() I no longer notice it all the time, and send messages while away _again_ :(
15:41:05 <flo> aleth: the point is to teach them how to use their IM client correctly
15:41:13 <flo> not to reinforce existing broken behaviors
15:41:34 <aleth> flo: Yeah, what I mean is related to the away vs busy discussion
15:42:34 <flo> I have a feeling it would be more productive for me to continue implement add/remove buddies in JS-XMPP rather than asking questions about what you mean by that :)
15:42:43 <aleth> probably :)
15:44:06 <aleth> (Just as an aside, you could always write a "set me to Available when I send a message" add-on ;) )
15:44:28 <flo> i've meant to do that for a while
15:45:11 <flo> but I think it should do that only if I've been unavailable and then away/idle before sending the message
15:46:11 <flo> I feel it's quite ok for me to set my status to unavailable and then say "I'll be away for the next 2 hours" to someone; the add-on shouldn't change my status when I do that

16:18:16 <clokep_work> I'm interested in having it done! :)
16:23:18 <deOmega1> aleth: sorry  about the long away time.  Here is something that shoudl be a core to  IB.  Status message should  remain after restarting IB.  
16:23:30 <deOmega1> Someone did an addon sometime ago and that seems to have stopped working
16:24:14 <flo> deOmega1: if the extension is broken, have you tried pinging the author? I think the author was skeledre w
16:24:50 <deOmega1> flo: Flo, yes,  i agree about the  contact list  in fullsreen beiing too much.  
16:24:58 <flo> but I think I agree it should be there by default, at the very least when restarting (update, add-on install, ...)
16:25:22 <flo> and it's probably quite easy to do now that bug 759 is fixed :)

16:25:29 <deOmega1> flo: No, i have not  addressed it
16:26:33 <deOmega1> I will say though that I  can see myself being more involved with the contact list,  when  the features you mentioend before are implemented 
16:27:14 <deOmega1> I know you  steadfast believe that there isno such thing as what a typical user should be, and i cannot argue  with that.. except to say
16:27:20 <flo> "the features you mentioend before are implemented " -> vague enough that the meaning of the whole sentence would have been the same if you omitted that part ;).
16:28:43 <deOmega1> sorry...  
16:28:49 <deOmega1> thiking
16:29:16 <deOmega1> the  unified buddy list or somethng liek that, where the buddy list has more information than just buddy list
16:29:34 <deOmega1> so, it becomes something tor eference periodically
16:30:05 <deOmega1> such as hidden conversations and so many other things we seem to have disucced in the past  that i am sure i dont have to regurgitate them for you to get the idea
16:30:15 <flo> isn't this more or less what we already have, now that all contacts display their status message?
16:30:52 <flo> conversations on hold are already in use, and very useful
16:30:59 <flo> that was probably the key feature of 1.1 :)
16:31:31 <deOmega1> ok...  i will try to address this later properly bcause i apparrently do not have that capacity at the moment
16:34:46 <deOmega1> this is probably  the most significant takeaway today... whether it is new information or not
16:34:54 <deOmega1> 8:07:26 AM - flo: deOmega1: I don't think such a list would drive much motivation. Neither to build it, nor to act upon it. We are not a company with managers deciding what the staff needs to do, just a bunch of volunteers each having our set of ideas, and enjoying when they go well together :)
16:35:47 <flo> deOmega1: I can add that such a list would always be outdated :)
16:36:13 <flo> deOmega1: and what's the closest to a list of things we want "as a community" is on bugzilla :)
16:36:23 <deOmega1> of course.. it cannot be aone-time process
16:36:37 <flo> deOmega1: see https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=sw%3A1.2
16:37:18 <flo> we are mostly focusing on what we need to do shortterm, because a list of what do to long term would be outdated before being useful
16:37:31 <deOmega1> If that makes sense to you and works for you, then so be it
16:37:57 <flo> deOmega1: you sound disappointed
16:38:08 <deOmega1> I  disagree 
16:40:29 <deOmega1> rather.. I have a hard time believing that you seriously believe that making a list of core components would be left untouched to become outdated

18:27:16 <flo> the whole code for authorization (http://lxr.instantbird.org/instantbird/source/purple/purplexpcom/src/purpleInitAccounts.cpp#174 lines 174 to 291) is so wrong... :(

18:27:46 <clokep_work> Because it's in C++?

18:28:26 <flo> and because using a prompt for it is hardcoded
18:28:51 <clokep_work> Ah, instead of generating a request object or something.

21:02:30 <Mic> I didn't say that we are doing that.
21:02:44 <flo> we've been saying that when we made a product decision that the requested behavior wasn't what we want by default, and offering a helping hand for the requester if (s)he wants Instantbird to behave the way (s)he described :)

21:11:12 <clokep_work> I think it's really complaining that the log viewer sucks, but somehow complaining about how the files are created...
21:13:03 <flo> clokep_work: I think if you s/closing the conversation/closing the tab/ the request is valid
21:13:48 <flo> the last time I thought about that, my conclusion was more or less that it makes more sense to cut after 20 minutes or so of inactivity than after the user has closed the tab
21:14:17 <flo> and he's also complaining that the log viewer sucks, yes :)
21:15:59 <clokep_work> Alright.
21:16:08 <clokep_work> It's like two interacting complaints, so I dislike that bug. :P
21:16:57 <flo> clokep_work: it's pretty clear that nothing useful will come out of this bug :(
21:17:34 <flo> like for most poorly phrased/scoped reports, it's easier to file a separate bug for each thing we want to work on, then reference the bug where we actually did the work and close the "original" bug
21:18:00 <clokep_work> Right.

21:43:26 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.instantbird.org/show_bug.cgi?id=414 nor, --, ---, nobody, UNCO, --enable-purple-plugins doesn't work
21:45:53 <flo> clokep_work: how do you feel about it?
21:46:14 <clokep_work> I don't really know what doing that does. :)
21:46:43 <flo> it was a configure switch to let purplexpcom load the libpurple plugins that are present in the system
21:47:16 <clokep_work> Ah.
21:47:18 <flo> the use case is for linux packagers who package have a libpurple package and don't want to duplicate the prpls in the instantbird package
21:47:32 <clokep_work> Right, that makes sense.
21:47:43 <Mic> "if we give up on the idea of using the blist status bar to show the connection state of accounts": do we really need to show it or are we only interested in cases where something isn't as it should be (i.e. by showing a notification that an account failed to connect/was disconnected/master password required to sign-on/..)?
21:48:12 <flo> Mic: how do you know "isn't as it should be"?
21:48:22 <flo> I may want some accounts to be offline, and some to be online
21:49:16 <flo> I guess it depends if we want to show to the user "look, here's some crap you need to look at to fix it" or "hey, Instantbird currently connects you to all these networks, enjoy!"
21:50:15 <flo> clokep_work: the problem is, I did it because it seemed easy
21:50:23 <flo> but it doesn't actually work, it just mostly works
21:50:33 <flo> and that bug report explains what doesn't work (didn't work at the time)
21:50:40 <clokep_work> Right.
21:50:43 <clokep_work> :(
21:50:59 <clokep_work> I'm guessing the situation hasn't gotten any better.
21:51:06 <flo> we basically are in trouble if the system libpurple was compiled with different configure options that what we expect
21:51:23 <clokep_work> Ah. So maybe it isn't something we want then. :-/ Although distros won't like that.
21:51:52 <flo> at this point we need to duplicate the mozilla platform for Ubuntu, so how bad could a handful of libpurple plugins be? ;)
21:52:00 <Mic> flo: if someone connects an account by himself and it gets disconnected without user interaction. If it can't connect when automatically signing on, ... that's what I'm referring to.
21:52:37 <aleth> Maybe check with the reporter whether they still care about the duplication?
21:52:39 <flo> Mic: if it's disconnected, but an auto-reconnect timer is active, do you show it?
21:52:54 <flo> aleth: it's a condition to be packaged on debian :(
21:52:56 <Mic> Not immeadiately
21:53:34 <flo> aleth: well, we are packaged on debian, but only in debian testing, they refuse to let the package go to debian stable until this is "fixed"
21:53:49 --> mmkmou has joined #instantbird
21:54:34 <flo> I have a feeling that the fix we will eventually implement is: let debian package instantbird without libpurple, and let debian users download libpurple through AIO :-P
21:55:43 <clokep_work> bug 491 is FIXED IN JS-XMPP, right?
