ScislaC9/3 at 11 on my calendar it shows as "GSoC 2019 Students Announced"Sep 06 10:14
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
ScislaCSounds right Mc :)Sep 06 10:17
ScislaCSo yes, clearly the project was a success this summer ;)Sep 06 10:18
ScislaCAnything else to discuss on GSoC or should we consider that item checked off. :)Sep 06 10:18
MoiniWould 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

MoiniStarts 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
MoiniForums seem fine to me, currently.Sep 06 10:32
MoiniBug migration needs Vectors to do some publicity.Sep 06 10:32
MoiniJust as Beta release.Sep 06 10:32
MoiniWiki migration needs a volunteer.Sep 06 10:32
c.rogersI'm here.Sep 06 10:32
c.rogersBarely. lolSep 06 10:32
MoiniI'm cutting sticker sheets...Sep 06 10:33
c.rogersOh nice.Sep 06 10:33
MoiniYours are of much better quality, Chris.Sep 06 10:33
MoiniBut these will do, for now.Sep 06 10:33
c.rogersYea, I guess we need refills on stickers now, mm?Sep 06 10:34
MoiniYes, please.Sep 06 10:34
MoiniNot urgent, but for the next event.Sep 06 10:34
c.rogersJust the standard inkscape ones?Sep 06 10:34
MoiniWhichever ones you like. Maybe hex, too?Sep 06 10:34
c.rogersAssume you have plenty of business cards ready to build a fort with.Sep 06 10:35
MoiniAre they still fashionable?Sep 06 10:35
MoiniYes, there are enough left for now.Sep 06 10:35
c.rogersWe could switch it up with a hex version.Sep 06 10:35
c.rogersIs that preferable to round ones?Sep 06 10:36
MoiniMaybe mix? So we have both?Sep 06 10:36
c.rogersI'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
c.rogersProbably depends on how much we're willing to spend.Sep 06 10:36
MoiniI'll only know which ones are preferred in Kiel after Sept. 21st.Sep 06 10:36
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
MoiniKielux, I'm having a LibreGraphics booth together with Christoph from Scribus.Sep 06 10:38
c.rogersWell the hackfest vinyl stickers are friggin bulletproof. I've worn through several of the standard inkscape ones (which are paper)Sep 06 10:38
c.rogersBut the vinyl ones last for pretty much ever.Sep 06 10:39
c.rogersThen 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
MoiniMine 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
MoiniThey're meant for outdoor use.Sep 06 10:40
c.rogersWell, I recommend we just go with the vinyl ones from now on.Sep 06 10:40
c.rogersThey 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
MoiniWhich pictures are on them?Sep 06 10:41
c.rogershackfest events currently.Sep 06 10:41
MoiniSorry, tedg...Sep 06 10:41
MoiniAh, okay. The silver foil things. They're very good.Sep 06 10:42
c.rogersYea, the black is like burned in or something.Sep 06 10:42
c.rogersmelted. :)Sep 06 10:42
c.rogersThey can be hand-washed as well, so can be put on mugs, etc.Sep 06 10:43
c.rogersBut anyway, I'm only able to pop in here. I'm snowed under with work.Sep 06 10:44
MoiniI know, seems like everyone is gone or busy.Sep 06 10:44
c.rogersI shouldn't be here. :) lolSep 06 10:44
c.rogersWhen is the next event?Sep 06 10:44
MoiniThen, thanks for still being here :)Sep 06 10:44
MoiniWhat type of event?Sep 06 10:45
c.rogersthe one that needs stickers?Sep 06 10:45
MoiniI think that will be LGM in Rennes.Sep 06 10:45
Moini"Tentative dates are 27th to 31st of May"Sep 06 10:45
c.rogersAh, well that's a ways off. lolSep 06 10:46
c.rogersnothing sooner?Sep 06 10:46
MoiniNot that I know of.Sep 06 10:46
c.rogersOkay. Remind me closer to the date.Sep 06 10:46
MoiniFOSDEM would be before, in Belgium.Sep 06 10:46
c.rogersHow soon do you want more generic inkscape stickers?Sep 06 10:47
c.rogersMaybe that's a better question.Sep 06 10:47
Moini:) Maybe for Christmas? Then we'd have them already.Sep 06 10:47
c.rogersHahahaSep 06 10:47
c.rogersSure. 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
MoiniIt's trivial to mail them, but harder to get them printed :)Sep 06 10:48
c.rogersYes, if you're willing to cut them, that may help.Sep 06 10:48
MoiniI can do that.Sep 06 10:49
c.rogersSweet. :)Sep 06 10:49
MoiniFor cold and dark winter nights...Sep 06 10:49
MoiniInstead of knitting (which I don't do)Sep 06 10:49
bryceback(-ish)Sep 06 10:50
MoiniMc had a question about mailing lists.Sep 06 10:50
c.rogersHahaha. ~\o Scissors clipping by an open fire... jack frost nipping at your nose... ~\oSep 06 10:50
c.rogersoops!Sep 06 10:50
Moinihttps://chat.inkscape.org/channel/team_devel?msg=FR5v3Wy7j2tjeBfYpSep 06 10:50
brycedunno, 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
bryceproblem 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
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
c.rogersI need to venture out for food before stuff closes.Sep 06 10:53
brycebtw my son's birthday is tomorrow so while I should be around this weekend it'll be super intermittentSep 06 10:54
bryce@ Mc  catch me when you've got a chunk of timeSep 06 10:54
McsureSep 06 10:54
c.rogersbbl to read up on anything else.Sep 06 10:55
MoiniBye Chris! Hope you find something nice :)Sep 06 10:55
ScislaCGet something spicy! (if that's your thing)Sep 06 10:56

Moini(to be answered later, I know)Sep 06 10:58
