00:29:24 <clokep> Hello flo-retina.
00:29:26 <flo-retina> are you on the Windows rc?
00:30:05 <clokep> Not yet...

00:33:07 <clokep> Hi.
00:33:14 <clokep> Now I am. :)
00:45:50 <clokep> flo-retina: Seems all good?
00:46:08 <flo-retina> the rc?
00:46:17 <clokep> Yes.

01:24:49 <flo-retina> clokep: what's the state of readiness of the release notes?
01:25:16 <clokep> flo-retina: I think the notes are OK, the announcement needs a lot of work.
01:27:01 <flo-retina> the part about the awesometab isn't exciting enough IMHO
01:27:09 <flo-retina> I'm trying to rephrase it, but I don't find anything I like
01:27:36 <flo-retina> release notes tend to have sentences, not be just a list of changes
01:28:55 <clokep> Oh. :-/
01:31:12 <-- ivan has quit (Ping timeout)
01:31:56 <flo-retina> if I change "    This list also automatically includes the channel list from connected IRC servers" by "    This list also automatically includes the channels advertized by the IRC servers you are connected to." is it OK?
01:32:29 <flo-retina> I'm not sure how negatively connoted the word "advertized" is in English
01:32:56 <flo-retina> (I dislike that the current sentence has the word "list" twice)
01:33:12 --> ivan has joined #instantbird
01:33:30 <clokep> That's fine.
01:33:39 <clokep> I didn't take it to be negative at all in taht sentence.
01:34:43 <Mook_as> it seems fine. (other than I think it's "advertise", even in en-US?)
01:35:24 <clokep> It's either.
01:35:31 <flo-retina> Mook_as: I'm on a French RC, I've got plenty of dictionaries now, but they are all French :(
01:36:59 <Mook_as> ... as long as it's not fr_FR, I think it'll be mostly fine. Heck, even if it's en_FR... XD
01:38:15 <flo-retina> Mook_as: http://i.imgur.com/zCI6odi.png
01:38:48 <Mook_as> lack of fr_CA confirmed?
01:39:07 <flo-retina> Mook_as: it's a completely different language :-P
01:39:19 <Mook_as> from a different century, at least?
01:39:37 <flo-retina> 4 meetings tomorrow + it's a release day for us, I think I should really go to bed ;).
01:39:55 <flo-retina> 2:40am already :-S

06:44:24 <eson57> testing 1.5 rc
06:46:31 <-- gerard-majax_ has quit (Ping timeout)
06:56:37 <eson57> hmm... found some misspelled words in privacy.dtd  :(  Is it possible to correct before final release?

09:07:57 <flo-retina> eson57: unless the mispealing are terrible (like something that results in insulting the user), I'm afraid it's too late.
09:08:29 <flo-retina> but you can totally push the changes anyway; just to be sure you don't forget to do them for the next release, which hopefully will be only a few months away
09:11:07 <eson57> flo-retina: It's a missed letter and one too many
09:13:31 <eson57> No big deal. It just makes me look like a sloppy translator.  :(
09:48:43 <flo-retina> which you aren't ;).
09:49:24 <flo-retina> eson57: I think missing a release for a locale is more efficient to "look like a sloppy translator" ;)
09:49:45 <flo-retina> 1.5 won't ship in Italian :(
09:50:18 <eson57> :(
09:52:16 <flo-retina> if that makes you feel better, I also spotted something suboptimal in the French locale when trying the RC.
09:52:51 <eson57> so when is 1.6 supposed to be released?  ;)
09:53:12 <flo-retina> hopefully 3 months from now
09:54:00 <eson57> ok... I'll have it fixed until then  :)
10:43:48 --> markh1 has joined #instantbird

11:05:47 <flo-retina> clokep: good morning
11:05:57 <flo-retina> so do you want me to upload the JSON files I got from my script?
11:17:01 --> hadi has joined #instantbird
11:17:52 <clokep> flo-retina: If you think it's worth it. I'm obviously not going to have time to write any scripts during the day today.
11:19:05 <clokep> (Good morning to you too. :))
11:19:20 <clokep> Did you see that comment about using the REST API instead of BzAPI
11:19:35 <flo-retina> clokep: bz2'ed, the results weight 48MB
11:19:46 <flo-retina> clokep: yes, I've seen it. I think I'll happily ignore it.
11:20:01 <clokep> OK. :)
11:20:12 <clokep> 48 MB! :) Thta includes attachments, right?
11:21:03 <flo-retina> yes
11:21:14 <flo-retina> 131MB without compression
11:22:05 <-- Mook has quit (Connection reset by peer)
11:24:41 <clokep> Fun. :)
11:30:52 <clokep> So...what's next? ;0
11:34:25 <flo-retina> for me, going to work I gues
11:34:26 <flo-retina> s
11:34:41 <flo-retina> can you be more specific? :-P
11:35:04 <clokep> That's my plan too. ;)
11:35:14 <clokep> I meant for release/BIO stuff.
11:35:34 <flo-retina> for the release, we need to finish the release notes, and make them into a web site changes patch
11:35:41 <flo-retina> then I need to create the source tarball
11:35:53 <flo-retina> I need to get the staging server back in shape
11:36:03 <flo-retina> to upload files to mirrors (if that still works)
11:36:15 <flo-retina> and after that we should be good to go
11:37:13 <flo-retina> for the BIO stuff, the next steps are: 1. Write the scripts we need. 2. Ensure the products get created (ping bmo admins) this week. 3. Figure out what we are doing with user accounts, and start requesting temporary passwords if needed
11:37:27 <flo-retina> I discussed this last point a bit with Gerv this morning. We have a few possible different strategies
11:37:48 <flo-retina> we may want to discuss with people in #bteam how much work it takes for them to merge accounts
11:43:05 <clokep> Here's the start of website update: http://pastebin.instantbird.com/487809
11:43:09 <clokep> What's #bteam?
11:43:56 <flo-retina> ask the awesometab for the topic of the channel? ;)
11:46:10 <-- flo-retina has quit (Quit: Instantbird 1.5 -- http://www.instantbird.com)
11:47:48 <clokep> Ah, I see.
11:48:11 * clokep wonders why that's not just #bugzilla. :-/
11:48:30 <clokep> (Btw that website change is based on http://hg.instantbird.org/websites/www.instantbird.com/rev/d30ed0c5188e )

12:11:35 <flo-retina> clokep: because #bugzilla is for bugzilla developers in general, not for BMO specifically? ;)

12:31:18 <Mic2> Entering several channel names in the join chat dialog doesn't work anymore. It does open the channels but it also creates a conversation with the name of all channels concatenated (rather: not split yet).

13:34:25 <clokep_work> flo-retina: Let me know if you want to talk to #bteam then and I'll join you in there.
13:35:00 <flo-retina> hmm
13:35:08 <flo-retina> I think we should do it, yes.
13:35:18 <flo-retina> I'm afraid it's not my priority now :-/
13:35:59 <clokep_work> Ping me if you wanna.
13:36:10 <flo-retina> maybe tonight after we get the release out the door?
13:36:25 <clokep_work> OK. :)
13:36:30 <-- Suiseiseki has quit (Quit: Leaving)
13:40:12 --> jb has joined #instantbird
14:00:42 <clokep_work> flo-retina: The release notes in https://etherpad.mozilla.org/ib-1-5 look fairly on par with what's on http://instantbird.com/release-notes.html
14:00:49 <clokep_work> They all look like they're sentences? :-S
14:01:19 <clokep_work> Well most of them at least.
14:01:36 <flo-retina> ok, let me re-read that
14:02:09 <clokep_work> Some of them aren't, but some just need a . at the end, I think.
14:02:25 <flo-retina> "you talk to contacts / chat rooms." is this human-parsable?
14:03:54 <flo-retina> I guess we/I need to generate a changelog
14:05:44 <flo-retina> clokep_work: it seems reasonable.
14:06:01 <flo-retina> We may want to tweak the order of some points, but that's easy to do even after converting to HTML, so it doesn't block
14:09:11 <clokep_work> flo-retina: Do we usually separate "new features" vs. "bugs fixed"?
14:09:22 <clokep_work> (I'm thinking like the Google Hangouts infinite typing thing.)
14:09:32 <flo-retina> somehow
14:09:41 <flo-retina> I think we mostly put the interesting stuff near the top
14:09:50 <clokep_work> flo-retina: "    The list is sorted with a frecency algorithm, taking into account how often and how recently you've talk to each contact."
14:09:52 <clokep_work> Is that better?
14:10:05 <clokep_work> (I know it works for chats too, but the sentences are way easier if we only talk about contacts...)
14:10:11 <flo-retina> you've just removed the chat part?
14:10:29 <clokep_work> I tweaked a bit of it.
14:10:34 <clokep_work> I added "you've" instead of "you"?
14:13:04 <flo-retina> is "you've talk" gramatically correct?
14:14:32 <clokep_work> talked to
14:14:40 * clokep_work is never sure what tense we do release notes in either. :(
14:17:28 <flo-retina> we do them in the English tense :P
14:24:45 <clokep_work> That's vague. :-D

16:43:32 <flo-retina> it's coming as a Christmas present ;)
16:43:48 <qheaden> Wow. That was fast.
16:43:50 <flo-retina> qheaden: the plan is in https://etherpad.mozilla.org/bugzilla-instantbird-merge-bzapi
16:44:13 <qheaden> Awesome.
16:44:27 <flo-retina> and I'm not sure I would agree with "fast"
16:44:41 <qheaden> So will the bug numbers change? I would imagine so because it would cause conflicts with the existing Mozilla bugs.
16:44:56 <flo-retina> given that hte original plan (https://bmo.etherpad.mozilla.org/bugzilla-instantbird-merge) was discussed in April 2012 ;).
16:45:04 <flo-retina> qheaden: they will change
16:45:16 <qheaden> Cool stuff.
16:54:25 <qheaden> Now ia32-libs on my Debian installation is found? :-/
16:54:33 <qheaden> Weird stuff.

21:01:20 <EionRobb> release early, release often
21:01:27 <clokep_work_work> The release notes probably need to be finished.
21:10:36 <flo-retina> is Mic2 finishing the release notes? ;)
21:17:28 <Mic2> flo-retina: how soon are they needed?
21:17:59 * Mic2 definitely needs to sync his Fx-profile :S
21:18:07 <Mic2> oops, wrong channel.
21:22:33 <flo-retina> Mic2: we are releasing tonight.
21:22:49 <Mic2> k
21:23:01 <flo-retina> I'm going to look at making a source tarball now

21:37:52 <flo-retina> 294 changesets between Ib 1.4 and 1.5
21:42:42 <clokep_work_work> Not bad! :)
21:43:35 <flo-retina> apparently the wording we used for the 1.4 release notes didn't need that value
21:44:03 <flo-retina> for 1.3 we had "And more... read the full ChangeLog for details of the 136 code changes since Instantbird 1.2." as the last line of the release notes
21:45:04 <flo-retina> the source tarball weights 150MB
21:45:33 <flo-retina> evolution of source tarball sizes: http://pastebin.instantbird.com/488488
21:46:45 <flo-retina> clokep_work_work: what's the status of the website update? Are you still on it, or should someone take over?
21:48:01 * clokep_work_work is working.
21:48:07 <clokep_work_work> flo-retina: Idk when I'llg et back ot i.t
21:48:25 <flo-retina> working without looking at the keyboard apprently ;)
21:48:57 <clokep_work_work> My monitor is at a right angle. :)

21:52:41 <clokep_work_work> flo-retina: I think most of it what it needs it the release notes and such anyway?
21:52:48 <flo-retina> yeah
21:56:27 <-- rosonline has quit (Quit: Instantbird 1.5 -- http://www.instantbird.com)
21:56:36 <Mic2> I can start with the release notes in ~ 30 minutes.
21:58:34 <flo-retina> "149MB  37.4MB/s   00:04" I thought we had only 100Mbps on the new server!
21:58:45 <Mic2> :)
21:59:20 <flo-retina> well, one of the 2 has 1Gbps, that's why I used it to clone mozilla-release for the source tarball
21:59:28 <flo-retina> but I thought the other one was 100Mbps
21:59:46 <flo-retina> maybe it's 100Mbps toward the Internet, but not between servers within the same data center
22:02:14 <flo-retina> do you think anybody will care that http://ftp.instantbird.com/instantbird/releases/1.4/md5sum and http://ftp.instantbird.com/instantbird/releases/1.5/md5sum aren't in the same format?
22:14:55 <clokep_work_work> No.
22:15:21 * qheaden is now known as qheaden_away
22:17:27 <flo-retina> I'm at the last step of the " Move the final builds " section
22:19:15 <flo-retina> (uploading to google code)
22:20:34 <flo-retina> "On January 15, 2014, existing projects with downloads will lose the ability to create new downloads."
22:20:45 <flo-retina> looks like we will need to find another solution for the next release
22:23:02 <clokep_work_work> ftp.mozilla.org? ;)
22:24:12 <flo-retina> sure
22:24:38 <flo-retina> but I was hoping we could wait a few months before trying that step :)
22:24:54 <clokep_work_work> It isn't Jan. 15th yet. ;)
22:24:56 <clokep_work_work> We have at least a month.
22:25:03 <flo-retina> the en-US windows installer weighted 9.9MB for 1.0. For 1.5 it weights 19MB.
22:25:41 <flo-retina> clokep_work_work: getting into c-c is more important than the ftp, so I wanted to fight that battle before the ftp one
22:27:32 <clokep_work_work> I concur.
22:31:37 <flo-retina> I guess now I need to look at the staging website :(

23:00:29 <flo-retina> (for now :))
23:05:58 <flo-retina> looks like they made deleting files intentionally painful
23:06:04 <flo-retina> "Instead of deleting a download, it is better to mark it as deprecated. Deprecated files are not shown to users in the default list of downloads. Deprecated files do use up part of your project's quota, but projects that need more storage space can request it by filing an issue in the "support" project."

23:15:18 * flo-retina wonders if Mic2 has done anything with the release notes ~1h ago.
23:15:32 <Mic2> II'm at it :)
23:16:49 <flo-retina> ETA?
23:16:53 * flo-retina wants to ship it and go to bed
23:17:15 <flo-retina> I think we will skip using Google code for now, and just host 1.5 on our own servers
23:17:48 <flo-retina> I don't expect any giant amount of traffic that would kill our servers
23:18:12 --> EionRobb has joined #instantbird
23:19:42 <Mic2> hmm, I started by rewriting the paragraph about the new conversation tab... I haven't adressed any of the FIXME's yet.
23:20:22 <flo-retina> Mic2: the plan was to just convert it into HTML
23:20:46 <Mic2> :o
23:20:55 <flo-retina> what's your color?
23:21:05 <flo-retina> I don't see any change to the new conv part
23:21:15 <Mic2> I haven't edited it in the etherpad
23:21:26 <flo-retina> :-o

23:21:45 <-- dew has quit (Ping timeout)
23:22:06 <Mic2> It's definitely not polished but I wanted it to be more personal (talking more about you and 'after the update', guiding the users attention there).
23:22:27 <-- EionRobb has quit (Ping timeout)
23:22:27 <flo-retina> are you talking about the release notes or the blog post?
23:22:32 --> dew has joined #instantbird
23:22:46 <Mic2> I was thinking about the blog post.
23:22:59 <Mic2> meh, seems I totally misunderstood you.
23:23:13 <Mic2> I'll convert what there's on the etherpad to html.
23:23:22 --> EionRobb has joined #instantbird
23:23:34 <flo-retina> do you have a clone of the website repository already?
23:23:52 <flo-retina> clokep had a pastebin earlier today with what he started
23:24:49 <Mic2> I don't, I don't even have Mercurial installed yet.
23:37:16 * flo-retina is on it
23:39:02 <Mic2> What does that mean exactly?
23:43:33 <flo-retina> that I'm poking at the repository
23:43:59 <Mic2> I've installed hg, cloned the websites (.com) repository and started looking at it too. Does that mean I should continue or stop?
23:44:15 <flo-retina> if you can make a reasonable version of this file for 1.5 http://hg.instantbird.org/websites/www.instantbird.com/file/d30ed0c5188e/release-notes-1.4.php and of the .properties file, that would help
23:44:46 <flo-retina> I'm going to push a simple change (adding an explicit license for screenshot) to see what the state of our staging server is
23:45:18 <Mic2> OK, I'll do that.
23:45:33 <flo-retina> I've already the modifications locally for all the other files we need to touch
