12:54:25 <clokep> aleth: I thought we handle if someone changes their nick? Or is that just if a conversation is open we rename the conv?
12:54:44 <aleth> We handle nick changes, but don't link that to the accountbuddies
12:54:55 <aleth> i.e. the accountbuddy doesn't change.
12:55:05 <clokep> OK. :)
12:55:09 <aleth> I'm pretty sure that's the right thing to do.
12:55:21 <clokep> aleth: Did you try it with someone whod oesn't have a totally lowercase nick btw?
12:55:43 <aleth> Otherwise there will be issues like "the account buddy thinks I'm aleth1 but I'm reconnected as aleth"
12:56:14 <aleth> clokep: No, but if there's a normalization issue there it's a separate bug, as it will affect tracking in general
12:57:37 <aleth> i.e. if uppercase letters were an issue, then we would never track those nicks in the first place
12:58:23 <clokep> aleth: I understand that, but I was just asking...
12:58:37 <clokep> I wasn't going to ask you to fix it in this patch.
12:58:41 <clokep> I just wanted to know if it was an issue.
12:58:46 <aleth> TBH I didn't check it because I assumed Mic would have complained by now if it was an issue ;)
12:59:05 <clokep> Ah.
12:59:11 <clokep> Mic is on mybuddy list.
12:59:19 <clokep> And it works for him...
13:01:55 <-- qlum has quit (Ping timeout)
13:02:56 <Tonnes> greetings
13:03:06 <Tonnes> hold on, I'll be nagging for some issue again :)
13:03:18 <Tonnes> 1) bug 953883 - font problem
13:03:22 <instantbot> Bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=953883 nor, --, ---, nobody, NEW, Problems with "Sacco-Vanzetti Instantbird" font
13:03:48 <Tonnes> 2) release notes only show up in English for any locale even though localized
13:04:03 <Tonnes> 3) 2013 -> 2014 ? (page bottom)
13:04:35 <clokep> Tonnes: I believe we already told you that we will NOT update the copyright year until we actually update the site. (I.e. there's nothing to copyright in 2014 yet.)
13:04:56 <clokep> Tonnes: Do you have a link that you expect to work for the release notes and doesn't? I think Florian would have to look at this though.
13:04:57 <aleth> flo might know what's up with 2)
13:05:00 <Tonnes> ih I see
13:05:25 <Tonnes> hold on
13:05:40 <Tonnes> http://www.instantbird.com/release-notes.html
13:05:54 <clokep> Tonnes: I know the font looks a little bit funky, but does it really garnish this much hate? I don't think it makes it that hard to read things and frankly there's much more pressing concerns.
13:05:56 <Tonnes>  I guess it adapts to the browser locale though
13:06:10 <clokep> What locale at you?
13:06:14 <Tonnes> nl
13:08:00 <Tonnes> It may be personal how one responds to the fonts an dit may look unimportant, but this may vary.. This has been an issue for 3 years, and I personally hate to see the fonts dancing, compared to _any_ other web site.. IMO you are scaring users away and it makes the web site look like a joke..
13:08:30 <aleth> Would you be interested in providing a patch?
13:08:48 <Tonnes> if I can help, no problem
13:09:18 <clokep> Tonnes: I highly doubt we're scaring users away, I find statements like that to be fear mongering. You seem to be passionate about this, but I have yet to see an alternative suggested.
13:09:32 <clokep> Tonnes: You can add the locale to the URL btw. :) http://www.instantbird.com/nl/release-notes.html
13:09:34 <aleth> Changing something like that usually results in a lot of argument about something non-urgent... which is why it tends to not get much attention
13:09:37 <clokep> But yes, that's not localized.
13:09:43 <Tonnes> I'm not really into coding (despite the technical background), but debugging / slihgt changes may work well
13:10:20 <aleth> Tonnes: I suspect someone will look at it the next time the website as a whole gets a facelift (whenever that is)
13:10:25 <Tonnes> http://www.instantbird.com/nl/release-notes.html shows similar - only the top is localized, What's new and below are not
13:11:20 <clokep> Tonnes: Yeah, looks like you have it all in the right file and stuff too. File a bug please?
13:11:27 <Tonnes> aleth: is is risky / does it need a lot of energy to change to Open sans?
13:11:28 <clokep> I can't look at that, I don't have access to thta box.
13:12:03 <aleth> Tonnes: The risk is that if you change just that, the replacement doesn't look right, so you have to change other things too...
13:12:45 <clokep> Tonnes: IF you have a way to try it and provide some screenshots, that might help.
13:12:46 <aleth> I think I suggested testing OpenSans in the bug, but I haven't tried it.
13:13:02 <Tonnes> ok will file a bug, same cproduct/omponent? (Instantbird servers/other)
13:13:25 <Tonnes> I see (risk)
13:13:42 <clokep> Tonnes: Instantbird Servers  / www.instantbird.com
13:13:48 <Tonnes> clokep: try with fonts, you mean?
13:15:35 <Tonnes> yeah I might sound passionate allright :) - I just think that most users are onm Windows, not sure about IB (you probably do), and if the Windows rates are low, I can imagine this is because users get scared away - The other way around: when teh fonts look better on WIndows, chances are the WIndows IB users numbers go up
13:16:16 <clokep> I think most of our users are on Windows.
13:16:24 <Tonnes> it is clearly a Windows issue allright, changing the pref as suggested in the bug works fine, but not many users are willing to do so
13:16:27 <clokep> And honestly, I use Windows and go to the site frequently and never noticed anything with it.
13:16:37 <aleth> Tonnes: It's great you are passionate about it :) It's just that we all have rather long todo lists and are all volunteers...
13:16:58 <Tonnes>  I understand, sorry
13:17:43 <aleth> You have nothing to apologize for.
13:17:52 <Tonnes> clokep: well I can imagina people like yuo and me see the site that regulary that they won;t even notice :) - I'm just thinking in First time experience sort of way
13:18:33 <Tonnes> ok, but sometimes I'm afraid I may sound too passionate and me be even become annoying
13:18:49 <aleth> I think clokep's suggestion of a screenshot with a different font would be a good first step in changing this if you are really interested.
13:19:07 <clokep> Tonnes: You also picked an awful time to bring this up last time...we were in the middle of migrating BIO to BMO over the holidays...
13:19:19 <Tonnes> I'm not writing here that often so it might make me a nagger, if the word exist  ;)
13:19:24 <Tonnes> ..s
13:21:19 <Tonnes> er.. do you think I can simulate the font change? I mean, it's a server issue allright, so.. or should I just make it use a local font, like Open sans, and it reflects the web site changes 100%?
13:21:26 <aleth> Tonnes: The website files are here http://hg.instantbird.org/websites/www.instantbird.com/
13:21:41 <Tonnes> ah
13:22:21 <Tonnes> so I can user that locally and let it download another font, right?
13:22:24 <aleth> You download the files, modify them, and open them in your browser (file://...)
13:22:35 <Tonnes> ok
13:23:21 <Tonnes> I'll definetely gie it a try, and file the bug.. right now I'm in a little rush but will try do do all this within the weekend
13:23:25 <Tonnes> s/give
13:23:38 <Tonnes> thanks guys!
13:23:43 <aleth> There's no rush... just wanted to give you some pointers so you could experiment.
13:24:16 <Tonnes> that's great,.. must say I thought about helping out fif I could, never came up to suggest it :)
13:25:01 <Tonnes> catch you later ;)

16:39:36 <qheaden> clokep: I'm not using ZNC anymore. So you will see me go offline at times.

17:13:23 <qheaden> clokep: I was away. :P
17:13:43 <qheaden> Unfortunately, I won't be able to do GSoC this year. My work is my current job.
17:13:59 <qheaden> In fact, they have asked me to write some software for them. So, no time. :(
17:14:01 <-- flo-retina has quit (Quit: Instantbird 1.6a1pre -- http://www.instantbird.com)
17:14:32 <qheaden> But since I will be off from school in the summer, I'll use the extra time to do some Ib development in my spare time.

17:15:13 <clokep> qheaden: That would be neat. :)
17:15:47 <clokep> flo-retina: Any reason that email was sent to team@ and not dev.chat?
17:16:14 <flo-retina> didn't want to share the email of the guy to a public mailing list without asking for his permission; that wouldn't be nice
17:16:32 <flo-retina> it was a private email to me that I'm forwarding
17:16:44 <clokep> Ah, true. :)
17:16:47 <clokep> I mean the information mostly.
17:17:14 <flo-retina> I think that info is mostly needed by any student wanting to work on this for GSoC
17:17:30 <clokep> Cool.
17:18:04 <qheaden> flo-retina: So are you finding GSoC interest?
17:18:11 <flo-retina> trying!
17:18:30 * clokep is talking in #build trying to get the version.h thing figured out
17:18:38 <qheaden> BTW guys, although I don't have time to be a mentor, I can help you guys help students in IRC over the summer.
17:18:40 <flo-retina> qheaden: it's easier to get interested students than mentors. And right now I mostly need the latter.
17:18:55 <flo-retina> clokep: I thought we said we would just check it in and forget the problem?
17:19:12 <flo-retina> clokep: ie. generate it when updating libpurple, rather than when building it.
17:19:15 <clokep> flo-retina: I only intended that to be the temporary solution.
17:19:27 <clokep> So I could work on other stuff. :)
17:19:38 <flo-retina> I don't see a problem with that solution
17:19:51 <qheaden> flo-retina: Is there a proposal/project page up yet for GSoC?
17:20:49 <flo-retina> qheaden: there's a page to suggest ideas (they need to have a mentor associated with them). The official idea list doesn't exist yet; which is the reason why we are collecting ideas now ;)
17:21:13 <clokep> qheaden: For IB: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/ib-gsoc-2014
17:21:56 <qheaden> I would submit "Port Instantbird to Android", but I have no idea how long that would take.
17:22:38 <flo-retina> qheaden: http://blog.queze.net/post/2014/01/24/Project-ideas-for-Summer-of-Code-2014
17:23:15 <qheaden> "Single WIndow UI" looks like something that can be extended from nhnt11's work.
17:23:41 * qheaden likes flo-retina's blog theme.
17:24:03 <clokep> qheaden: Instant messaging doesn't work super well for mobile.
17:24:22 <qheaden> I guess that idea stems from my hate of Hangouts.
17:24:31 <flo-retina> qheaden: persistent TCP sockets are annoying on mobile.
17:24:38 <qheaden> I agree.
17:24:39 <flo-retina> qheaden: they are unreliable _and_ suck the battery
17:25:07 <qheaden> I guess that's the reason I don't run IRC clients on my phone. :P
17:25:36 <flo-retina> I would like a bot based on Ib's core running on my server, and a web UI to see what's up from my phone
17:25:42 <flo-retina> well, that's called a bouncer I guess
17:26:13 <qheaden> Instantbouncer? :P
17:27:04 <clokep> Alright...so...I think next to look at is configure.
17:27:11 <clokep> But I'm not sure what needs to be done w/ that.
17:27:16 * clokep just cleaned up all the patches so the ymake sense.
17:28:13 <flo-retina> sounds like good progress :)
