17:58:59 <Mook_as> Hmm, I can't set SOCKS proxies per account, can I?
18:16:05 <-- freaktechnik has quit (Connection closed)
18:20:38 <clokep_work> Mook_as: I don't think so, no.
18:20:43 <clokep_work> What're you trying to do? (o_O)
18:21:04 <clokep_work> (I think this was allowed for libpurple accounts FWIW.)
18:21:09 <clokep_work> But not for like IRC.
18:21:26 <clokep_work> Being able to set it per account or for certain domains makes sense...
18:25:28 --> freaktechnik has joined #instantbird
18:35:47 <Mook_as> I'm trying to connect to an IRC server behind a VPN
18:36:01 <Mook_as> I've got the VPN set up to be a SOCKS proxy, so I can opt-in to using it

18:42:27 <-- Hariss has quit (Quit: http://www.kiwiirc.com/ - A hand crafted IRC client)
18:46:20 <clokep_work> Mook_as: OK, but you want to use it only for that account?
18:46:55 <Mook_as> Yes
18:47:28 <Mook_as> Since a different (mail) account actually breaks if I'm on that VPN. (Thunderbird, but the same should apply to Instantbird if you sub it in for a different server)
18:47:42 <Mook_as> Networking is hard :(
18:49:07 <clokep_work> Yeah. That's a legit usecase.
18:49:40 <clokep_work> Mook_as: I see at the bottom I have options for "ignore proxy for hosts xyz"
18:49:46 <clokep_work> Can you use that to ignore it for the host that breaks?
18:49:55 <Mook_as> Ah, I can try that
18:50:10 --> Hariss has joined #instantbird
18:51:15 <Hariss> clokep-M: clokep_work: Hi, I have seen that you have listed a project on the Brainstor,ing page
18:51:35 <Mook_as> Yeah, that works. Not sure why I forgot to try that… now I feel dumb :D
18:51:38 <Mook_as> Thanks!
18:51:42 <-- matrixisreal has quit (Quit: Connection closed for inactivity)
18:51:49 <clokep_work> Hariss: Yeah.
18:51:56 <Hariss> That project personally interests me a lot,
18:51:57 <clokep_work> Mook_as: You're welcome. :)
18:51:59 <clokep_work> Glad that worked.
18:52:04 <clokep_work> Hariss: OK, how come?!

18:53:01 <Hariss> I like working with instant messenging clients, I dont have a lot of prior experience, but
18:53:28 <Hariss> yeah I think that would interest me.
18:53:54 <Hariss> clokep_work: Can I start working on that project ?
18:55:02 <clokep_work> Hariss: We landed initial support for Matrix, it probably needs a bunch of work done to it still. Check out some of the comments in matrix.js: https://dxr.mozilla.org/comm-central/source/chat/protocols/matrix/matrix.js
18:56:41 <clokep_work> (That probably wasn't much information. ;))
18:56:53 <clokep_work> Please ask more questions -- just ping me if you expect a quick response.
18:57:50 <Hariss> clokep_work: Thanks, Is anyone else(student) aplying for the project ?
18:58:07 <Hariss> applying
18:58:22 <Hariss> clokep_work: You are asking me to DM u ?
18:58:49 <clokep_work> Hariss: No, please don't DM me unless it's truly private.
18:58:57 <clokep_work> Other people have expressed interest in that project.
18:59:50 <clokep_work> But no one has looked too deeply into it.
18:59:58 <clokep_work> Are you interested specifically in Matrix or a different protocol?
19:00:54 <Hariss> Any protocol would work for me.
19:01:48 <Hariss> How many projects from instantbird are going to get selected ?
19:02:41 <clokep_work> I don't have an answer to that.
19:02:52 <clokep_work> We don't even know how many slots Mozilla will get.
19:03:24 <Hariss> clokep_work: How exactly does the selection process takes place
19:03:50 <Hariss> I mean if 30 projects are competing for 10 slots (a hypothetical case )
19:04:11 <clokep_work> People apply to projects, we roughly break down how many we think would be good, we ask Google for a number of slots, they tell us a number of slots (usually less than we ask for), we decided which projects to accept.
19:04:13 <clokep_work> (Roughly.)

19:06:22 <Hariss> clokep_work: Great, Is there any chance you are willing to float some more projects, or one is the max number.
19:06:47 <clokep_work> Hariss: Depends if another mentor wants to help out or not.
19:06:48 <Hariss> I see some students who have already done some work
19:06:58 <clokep_work> What do you mean?
19:08:10 <Hariss> I mean, people already started working on it, so i might have less chance :
19:08:12 <Hariss> :/
19:19:52 --> matrixisreal has joined #instantbird
19:25:24 <clokep_work> Hariss: I don't understand what you're saying.
19:25:30 <clokep_work> Can you be more descriptive about 'people' and 'it'?
19:26:02 <clokep_work> There are other protocols to investigate too.
19:29:44 <Hariss> clokep_work: I mean, I have seen some "students " who have already started working on instantbird
19:29:58 <clokep_work> Hariss: Sure, I don't see how that's a problem though.
19:30:00 <Hariss> and If you float just one project, Ill have few chances
19:30:09 <clokep_work> Yes, there's no guarantees.
19:33:01 --> EionRobb has joined #instantbird
19:33:52 <Hariss> clokep_work:  OK, thanks

19:47:13 <matrixisreal> how to rebase my local build ?
19:47:23 <matrixisreal> clokep_work: ?
19:48:39 <freaktechnik> doesn't ./mach mercurial-setup add a rebase?
19:50:24 <matrixisreal> freaktechnik: idk, wld that just wrk ?
19:50:31 <clokep_work> matrixisreal: |hg rebase -d comm| maybe?
19:50:38 <clokep_work> That works for me, but I might have additioanl extensions instealled.
19:51:03 <freaktechnik> mach installs a rebase extension, so I would assume that's it. Never used it myself
19:52:21 <matrixisreal> so,  1.  ./mach mercurial-setup
19:52:21 <matrixisreal> 2. hg rebase -d comm
19:52:21 <matrixisreal> should work ?
19:54:41 <clokep_work> You might need to pull between those steps.
19:54:47 <clokep_work> To get the comm bookmark.
20:01:28 <matrixisreal> clokep_work: Is the matrix bug pushed into the main tree alreadt ?
20:01:54 <clokep_work> Yes.
20:16:35 <matrixisreal> Got this error while building after pulling and updating. https://www.irccloud.com/pastebin/vnInnYYD/error
20:26:20 <matrixisreal> clokep_work: freaktechnik :  ^
20:27:08 <freaktechnik> usual way of going about build failures is to do ./mach clobber and hope it makes it go away.
20:34:03 <matrixisreal> freaktechnik: is it okay if I disable rust for now, getting an error ... so,
20:34:19 <freaktechnik> well, you kinda need it to build afaik
20:34:43 <freaktechnik> though I don't know if the affected components are integral to instantbird.
20:34:57 <freaktechnik> but getting a proper rust version using rustup should be quite simple
20:36:39 <matrixisreal> freaktechnik: So ,do I need to rebuild everytime i pull?
20:37:02 <freaktechnik> not always, but if some major changes happen you may have to
20:37:09 <freaktechnik> the autoclobber doesn't always work
20:39:16 <matrixisreal> freaktechnik:  what does clobber do btw :p
20:39:52 <freaktechnik> it removes build artifacts that are no longer up to date. ./mach clobber just deletes the whole resulting obj dir (including the temp profile etc. for ./mach run)
20:40:27 <matrixisreal> got it.
20:55:25 <clokep_work> matrixisreal: I don't know if you can disable rust.
20:55:48 <clokep_work> matrixisreal: I usually try not to pull too often while I'm actively working on things. ;)
20:55:55 <clokep_work> But of course you need to to pick up new changes.

21:23:32 <clokep_work> matrixisreal: Did you pull mozilla after pulling comm-central?
21:24:03 <freaktechnik> (so python client.py checkout)
21:24:27 <matrixisreal> i have just run "hg pull" while in comm-central 
21:24:37 <matrixisreal> how to pull mozilla
