Okay, kick off with SFC stuff.
First up is our traditional overview: https://gitlab.com/-/snippets/2283429
Not a lot going on there, even though we've voted for stuff to spend money, that hasn't hit our account much yet.
I started playing with a format to track the allocations we've made.
I'm stealing from QuickBooks reports that we use for our Rotary chapter.
Here's my first attempt: https://office.inkscape.org/nextcloud/index.php/s/yqgxF5ecknaYzNF
I know folks just saw it, but as you think about it ping me sometime, I'd like to make it better.
|ted||Any financials questions?||17:04|
|karen||ted: we can help get reports generated directly from our systems too, pono and Rosanne can help||17:04|
|ted||karen: ah, cool. We can play with that as we start to figure out what we want. I don't think we're ready to codify yet.|
First drafts and all
|ted||Cool, the other thing I'm tracking SFC-wise is the FSA update. I just pinged SFC about it today preparing for this meeting (which is a bit late to have a status for this meeting)|
But, I think we're good on our side.
|karen||yes got the ping, I think you're good on your side too|
I'll get to it soon!
|karen||(I just need to comb through what you sent to mkae sure I dont' miss anything + double check updates we've been getting from counsel to make sure the agreement is latest and greatest all around|
|ted||So next up is student programs: * Student programs (Outreachy, GSoC, etc) ( @Tav )|
|Mc||we have a few interested students for gsoc, applications start in 3 days|
(less than usual, but it seems to be the case for most of gsoc orgs that told about it on the mentors ml)
|ted||Nice. That's good.||17:09|
|Tav||Lots of interest.. we'll see if we get good proposals.||17:09|
|ted||Do we need to prepare some call for mentors or something? Or just wait right now.||17:10|
|karen||yes word is that's happening across participating projects||17:10|
|Mc||currently we'll wait||17:10|
|Tav||Wait, I think.||17:10|
|Tav||I'm most excited about possibly getting rid of the garbage collector!||17:11|
|ted||K, makes sense.|
Haha, that would be really nice!
|Mc||for outreachy, iirc we have some voted budget from 1y ago but afaik did not put projects for the summer round||17:11|
|doctormo||@Tav The student came to the developer meeting yesterday for that project.||17:12|
|ted||Nice segway @doctormo! Next up: * Developer meeting update (Mc)||17:13|
|Mc||beta next week, release in may (precise date tbd by a vectors meeting)|
most things are fine, with a big regression in glib 2.72
|Tav||BTW, I just discovered the Paint Server dialog is completely broken...||17:13|
|scislac[m]||What's the regression?||17:14|
|Mc||file descriptors passing is half-broken on windows|
so, no extensions
|Tav||It doesn't insert the pattern/hatch into the <defs> section.||17:14|
|doctormo||@Tav Report it, I know Rafael has been refactoring that.||17:15|
|Mc||bug is in discussion with glib devs, there is hope fo a quick 2.72.1||17:16|
|Tav||There is a student interested in working on expanding its use for GSoC.||17:16|
|ted||K, sounds like things are making progress. It wouldn't be a beta without bugs 😉||17:16|
|doctormo||Lots of uptream issues this cycle, it's interesting.||17:16|
|Mc||(ah also iirc poppler released 2022.04 hours ago so we need to see if things are broken with it)|
(btw, it's better for me if it's a quick meeting, I'll have to go soon-ish)
|doctormo||I think we're in good shape generally though||17:18|
|ted||K, seems like it to me too.|
Okay, let's make sure to move on then: * Vectors update ( @ryangorley )
|doctormo||Their meeting is tomorrow; they've got a video to discuss and are on standby for release announcements||17:20|
|ted||Hmm, seems he's away.|
And hopefully a release date.
|doctormo||Yes we're pushing more for vectors to set the schedule, rather than follow one defined by devs.||17:21|
|ted||Not sure if @Moini is here, I forget when but I believe we just had a conference?||17:21|
|doctormo||So they can plan out their announcements in good time.||17:21|
uh, no, sorry
|ted||Okay, let's keep going there. * Infrastructure update ( @doctormo )|
(also feel free to go on to: * Administrator job process status ( @doctormo ) ) when you're done)
|doctormo||Website is upgraded, rocket chat went down because of a full disk now has very tiny file upload quota.||17:23|
|Mc||it could be upped but after people using RC define a policy for expiring files||17:23|
|doctormo||We're on track to push the website up to the latest django and hopefully move to a better CMS in 2022||17:23|
|ted||Great that it's fixed, do we need more disk?||17:23|
|Mc||problem was not exactly disk size but (in)efficiency of mongodb storage for files||17:24|
|doctormo||There was a spam attack against the website and forums, new measures were put in place, couple of hundred accounts deleted.||17:24|
|Mc||(+ a rocketchat bug that's now circumvented)||17:25|
|doctormo||Quick update for the project coordinator position: the process is with pono, who is batching up entrants and sending them to the jobs at mailing list soon.||17:25|
|doctormo||There's an extra two weeks of time to get more people to apply and give us some space to breath.||17:25|
|pono||After extending the submission date, we've received more applicants!||17:26|
|ted||K, should we do something to gather community input on the new CMS? Or something else? Not sure how we could move forward best there?|
pono: Awesome, how many are we up to?
|pono||I'll work on sending the current list out today to the jobs and boards list|
About 18 last I checked!
|doctormo||ted: current state of cms is *exploration phase*, we'll do a proper deep dive on the options before any code is made.||17:27|
|pono||A pretty wide pool of experience and background which is great||17:27|
|ted||Great! I was a bit worried we wouldn't get any applicants 😃||17:27|
|Mc||@doctormo isnt django standard ?|
pono: nice :)
|doctormo||Mc: django doesn't have a cms.||17:27|
|doctormo||It's a choice of different cms packages that go on top.||17:27|
|ted||@doctormo, makes sense.||17:27|
|Mc||oh ok, I thought it was \||17:28|
|doctormo||that's one of the options, and one we want to move away from ;-)||17:28|
|ted||Thanks for the updates. I think that just leaves the closing items.|
* Current Votes Status
We've got technically two open votes: The security keys, and mentor reimbursements.
But generally thanks for keeping up on the votes everyone!
And the always exciting: * Next Meeting: May 6, 2022
Anything else for the meeting?
(we were efficient today)
|doctormo||Video meeting is in *two weeks* not one as usual: https://inkscape.org/cals/event/30/||17:31|
|ted||Cool, thanks everyone!|
