Mcdeadline for participation in outreachy was apparently yesterday ( https://www.outreachy.org/communities/cfp/#mentor )Sep 06 10:07
inkchatbot<ScislaC> GSoC is over, we're technically not allowed to discuss results yet since they haven't been announced. :)Sep 06 10:07

inkchatbot<ScislaC> Mc: No, the deadline for evaluations was a couple days agoSep 06 10:12
inkchatbot<ScislaC> Unless the "students announced" GSoC calendar item on Tuesday meant results announced.Sep 06 10:13
Mcno, no, Sep 06 10:14
McResults AnnouncedSep 06 10:14
McSeptember 3, 2019 Sep 06 10:14
inkchatbot<ScislaC> 9/3 at 11 on my calendar it shows as "GSoC 2019 Students Announced"Sep 06 10:14
inkchatbot<ScislaC> (which seems like an odd title)Sep 06 10:14
Mchttps://opensource.googleblog.com/2019/09/thats-wrap-for-google-summer-of-code.html looks like an announcement on successful projectsSep 06 10:15
Mcand there are no dates in the future in the calendar :pSep 06 10:15
inkchatbot<ScislaC> Sounds right Mc :)Sep 06 10:17
inkchatbot<ScislaC> So yes, clearly the project was a success this summer ;)Sep 06 10:18
inkchatbot<ScislaC> Anything else to discuss on GSoC or should we consider that item checked off. :)Sep 06 10:18
inkchatbot<Moini> Would have been cool if the list were sorted on Google's page - I haven't found him yet...Sep 06 10:18
Mcyou can search at the topSep 06 10:18
Mchttps://summerofcode.withgoogle.com/projects/#5365695322259456Sep 06 10:18
inkchatbot<Moini> Yep, saw that now.Sep 06 10:19
bryycebblSep 06 10:19
Mcbryyce: anything we can do to help the mailing lists ?Sep 06 10:20
inkchatbot<Moini> Found @ vanntile  :) Thanks, Tav + Valentin, for all the time and work invested into the project!Sep 06 10:22
*ryangorley hears cricketsSep 06 10:27
ryangorleyDid I miss all of the board meeting?Sep 06 10:27
inkchatbot<Moini> All up to now - there wasn't a lot yet.Sep 06 10:27
inkchatbot<Moini> Starts at https://chat.inkscape.org/channel/team_devel?msg=5f7qczF3J35ajpw9CSep 06 10:28
ryangorleyThanks!Sep 06 10:28
*ryangorley slips back into the shadowsSep 06 10:28
tedgWe probably can't discuss the budge or mailing lists without bryceSep 06 10:29
Mcwe may postpone the meetingSep 06 10:29
tedgSo then bug and wiki migration?Sep 06 10:29
tedgDo we need to do anything forums related?Sep 06 10:29
tedgMc: that tooSep 06 10:30
Mchavent seen c.rogers for the bugSep 06 10:30
Mcwiki, not sure, I think bryyce is the point of contact for OSUOSL ?Sep 06 10:30
Mcfor the forums, doctormo ? :pSep 06 10:30
inkchatbot<Moini> Forums seem fine to me, currently.Sep 06 10:32
inkchatbot<Moini> Bug migration needs Vectors to do some publicity.Sep 06 10:32
inkchatbot<Moini> Just as Beta release.Sep 06 10:32
inkchatbot<Moini> Wiki migration needs a volunteer.Sep 06 10:32
inkchatbot<c.rogers> I'm here.Sep 06 10:32
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Barely. lolSep 06 10:32
inkchatbot<Moini> I'm cutting sticker sheets...Sep 06 10:33
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Oh nice.Sep 06 10:33
inkchatbot<Moini> Yours are of much better quality, Chris.Sep 06 10:33
inkchatbot<Moini> But these will do, for now.Sep 06 10:33
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Yea, I guess we need refills on stickers now, mm?Sep 06 10:34
inkchatbot<Moini> Yes, please.Sep 06 10:34
inkchatbot<Moini> Not urgent, but for the next event.Sep 06 10:34
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Just the standard inkscape ones?Sep 06 10:34
inkchatbot<Moini> Whichever ones you like. Maybe hex, too?Sep 06 10:34
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Assume you have plenty of business cards ready to build a fort with.Sep 06 10:35
inkchatbot<Moini> Are they still fashionable?Sep 06 10:35
inkchatbot<Moini> Yes, there are enough left for now.Sep 06 10:35
inkchatbot<c.rogers> We could switch it up with a hex version.Sep 06 10:35
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Is that preferable to round ones?Sep 06 10:36
inkchatbot<Moini> Maybe mix? So we have both?Sep 06 10:36
inkchatbot<c.rogers> I'll look into it and see how much that would be.Sep 06 10:36
tedgThere's a bunch of folks trying to standardize hex ones to make the back of laptops more organizedSep 06 10:36
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Probably depends on how much we're willing to spend.Sep 06 10:36
inkchatbot<Moini> I'll only know which ones are preferred in Kiel after Sept. 21st.Sep 06 10:36
inkchatbot<c.rogers> ?Sep 06 10:37
irker391[inkscape] Patrick Storz pushed 1 new commit to master: https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inkscape/compare/8a2c433d...7a951d2dSep 06 10:37
irker391inkscape/master 7a951d2d Patrick Storz (4 files): Update 2geomSep 06 10:37
inkchatbot<Moini> Kielux, I'm having a LibreGraphics booth together with Christoph from Scribus.Sep 06 10:38
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Well the hackfest vinyl stickers are friggin bulletproof. I've worn through several of the standard inkscape ones (which are paper)Sep 06 10:38
inkchatbot<c.rogers> But the vinyl ones last for pretty much ever.Sep 06 10:39
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Then again I take the laptop around everywhere and cram it in a bag with other things about 5 times a day.Sep 06 10:39
inkchatbot<Moini> Mine have some kind of foil on them. Which doesn't even adhere perfectly - at the borders of the colors, where the paper is a bit uneven, there are tiny bubbles of air (only visible if you look at it from a certain angle).Sep 06 10:40
inkchatbot<Moini> They're meant for outdoor use.Sep 06 10:40
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Well, I recommend we just go with the vinyl ones from now on.Sep 06 10:40
inkchatbot<c.rogers> They don't have that issue, and they look about a hundred times better anyway.Sep 06 10:41
tedgI'm going to have to step out, sorry folks. I'll check the backlog when I'm back online.Sep 06 10:41
inkchatbot<Moini> Which pictures are on them?Sep 06 10:41
inkchatbot<c.rogers> hackfest events currently.Sep 06 10:41
inkchatbot<Moini> Sorry, tedg...Sep 06 10:41
inkchatbot<Moini> Ah, okay. The silver foil things. They're very good.Sep 06 10:42
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Yea, the black is like burned in or something.Sep 06 10:42
inkchatbot<c.rogers> melted. :)Sep 06 10:42
inkchatbot<c.rogers> They can be hand-washed as well, so can be put on mugs, etc.Sep 06 10:43
inkchatbot<c.rogers> But anyway, I'm only able to pop in here. I'm snowed under with work.Sep 06 10:44
inkchatbot<Moini> I know, seems like everyone is gone or busy.Sep 06 10:44
inkchatbot<c.rogers> I shouldn't be here. :) lolSep 06 10:44
inkchatbot<c.rogers> When is the next event?Sep 06 10:44
inkchatbot<Moini> Then, thanks for still being here :)Sep 06 10:44
inkchatbot<Moini> What type of event?Sep 06 10:45
inkchatbot<c.rogers> the one that needs stickers?Sep 06 10:45
inkchatbot<Moini> I think that will be LGM in Rennes.Sep 06 10:45
inkchatbot<Moini> "Tentative dates are 27th to 31st of May"Sep 06 10:45
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Ah, well that's a ways off. lolSep 06 10:46
inkchatbot<c.rogers> nothing sooner?Sep 06 10:46
inkchatbot<Moini> Not that I know of.Sep 06 10:46
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Okay. Remind me closer to the date.Sep 06 10:46
inkchatbot<Moini> FOSDEM would be before, in Belgium.Sep 06 10:46
inkchatbot<c.rogers> How soon do you want more generic inkscape stickers?Sep 06 10:47
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Maybe that's a better question.Sep 06 10:47
inkchatbot<Moini> :) Maybe for Christmas? Then we'd have them already.Sep 06 10:47
inkchatbot<c.rogers> HahahaSep 06 10:47
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Sure. I think that's doable. It's on my to-do list for this month to get a hex sticker design.Sep 06 10:48
inkchatbot<Moini> It's trivial to mail them, but harder to get them printed :)Sep 06 10:48
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Yes, if you're willing to cut them, that may help.Sep 06 10:48
inkchatbot<Moini> I can do that.Sep 06 10:49
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Sweet. :)Sep 06 10:49
inkchatbot<Moini> For cold and dark winter nights...Sep 06 10:49
inkchatbot<Moini> Instead of knitting (which I don't do)Sep 06 10:49
inkchatbot<bryce> back(-ish)Sep 06 10:50
inkchatbot<Moini> Mc had a question about mailing lists.Sep 06 10:50
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Hahaha. ~\o Scissors clipping by an open fire... jack frost nipping at your nose... ~\oSep 06 10:50
inkchatbot<c.rogers> oops!Sep 06 10:50
inkchatbot<Moini> https://chat.inkscape.org/channel/team_devel?msg=FR5v3Wy7j2tjeBfYpSep 06 10:50
inkchatbot<bryce> dunno, the next action is hands on diagnostics, I don't really know what that'd involve  skills-wise or how long it'd take,Sep 06 10:51
McI have some sysadmin skillsSep 06 10:52
Mcso maybe I can have a lookSep 06 10:53
inkchatbot<bryce> problem is that the machine needs to be on to diagnose, but if it's on it drives disk io through the roof and our hosting provider flags it.Sep 06 10:53
inkchatbot<bryce> @ Mc  ok Sep 06 10:53
Mcmmh, I'm in a public park and it starts raining so I'll have to go :/Sep 06 10:53
McsorrySep 06 10:53
inkchatbot<c.rogers> I need to venture out for food before stuff closes.Sep 06 10:53
inkchatbot<bryce> btw my son's birthday is tomorrow so while I should be around this weekend it'll be super intermittentSep 06 10:54
inkchatbot<bryce> @ Mc  catch me when you've got a chunk of timeSep 06 10:54
McsureSep 06 10:54
inkchatbot<c.rogers> bbl to read up on anything else.Sep 06 10:55
inkchatbot<Moini> Bye Chris! Hope you find something nice :)Sep 06 10:55
inkchatbot<ScislaC> Get something spicy! (if that's your thing)Sep 06 10:56
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Thanks! I'm thinking Korean spicey chicken.Sep 06 10:56
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Haha!Sep 06 10:56
inkchatbot<ScislaC> LOL!Sep 06 10:56
inkchatbot<c.rogers> Great minds.Sep 06 10:56
inkchatbot<ScislaC> indeed!Sep 06 10:56
inkchatbot<Moini> All 70 stickers are cut up :)Sep 06 10:58
inkchatbotryangorley, will there be a Vectors meeting tomorrow?Sep 06 10:58
inkchatbot<Moini> Mc, do you want any publicity for the beta?Sep 06 10:58
inkchatbot<Moini> (to be answered later, I know)Sep 06 10:58
inkchatbot<ScislaC> I guess the Q is if the meeting is over now...Sep 06 11:00
inkchatbot<Moini> Probably it is...Sep 06 11:00
