Question du Jour : (5 min) Next sprint will be in January. Do we need to get together as a team more often?
Alpha4 status : (10 min) We're less than 2 weeks from feature freeze and still have lots to do. We need to review the tasks still open and assess what can realistically be done (I've been doing that with almost everybody already but, still, I'm reiterating it). Anything you want to share? Red flags wrt to the tasks?
Issues and Announcements : (10 min) Our usual agenda entry. This is your opportunity to announce something (completion of some work, availability of something) or raise concerns or ask questions having an influence on the projects.
wx: (5 min) We are starting a transparency project with Stefan Csomor from the wx community. This will open exciting opportunities for better UI though we're not planning on it for the 0.7 Preview. Comments?
Interns : (5 min) SoC is over, interns are leaving the nest... err... the company. We're still in touch with everybody though which is great. Thanks for sending the CLAs over BTW.
Digging through alpha4
0.7alpha4 : keep making progress on the various feature areas
0.7 : assign bugs and tasks to relevant milestones
Question du Jour : Next sprint will be in January. Do we need to get together as a team more often?
Reid, Brian: yes! why not? (Philippe: well, budget is why, we need a good rationale for getting together)
Philippe: we should better take advantage of opportunities like WWDC (missed to meet longer with Reid that week).
John: new sidebar tasks are sort of popping up with people using it, John a little concerned by that though it's better to have feedback and discussion very early
Reid: concentrating on non wx stuff right now (DV)
Bryan: reprioritized tasks, concerned by perf introduced by new sorting in the dashboard (indexing), not much to do about this right now though (no premature optimization)
Issues and Announcements
see above John on sidebar churn and Bryan on perf concerns
Jeffrey: feels we need to revive the reminder applet. Travis made a proposal recently. Need to reactivate that thread.
sharing, external information model
People thought it was good. Will chime in on the list so that PJE knows about our approval.
we need to make sure this doesn't look like a fork since it's not the intent
we (Chandler) are not interested in taking the changes if they don't make them back in wx
we've no vocation or intent to host a wx fork
Markku presented his pmtool to Mozilla, positive feedback
Darshana working from Virginia, making progress on the parsing, waiting for the toolbar piece to fall in
Your status here...
Checking in big Date column changes today
Slowed down (to the tune of a day or so) by problems running tests (partly fixed by my --catch work)
Worked on enabling and disabling commands in the Quick Entry text widget depending on the user's first command
Worked on parsing contacts from the text for '/Message'
Worked on extracting date/time from the text and creating events with date/time ranges and setting reminders with a single date/time
Worked on stamping items into multiple kinds
Posted a patch (which does the above) for Bug#6470
Fixed bug 6621, holiday recurring events were broken, also fixed serialization issue in vobject associated with this bug
Worked on bug 6620, zero duration events are handled poorly (which also causes some holidays not to show up), I've got a fix but I'm still writing unit tests
Looked into lots of bugs on my plate, this week for some reason I couldn't reproduce them
Helped Darshana with quick entry debugging
Worked with Bryan and Mimi on clarifying the date column in the dashboard
Various emails to the list and a bit of private correspondence with a list participant
Spent lots of time correcting the names of the icon files
Fix reopened bug#6523: Refresh needed on restart to get scroll position if visible hours aren't automatic
Display all of the OOTB collections as table view across all App areas
Disallow overlays for the OOTB collections (no rollover check-box icons at all) in the Calendar app
Disallow overlays for all collections in the All, Mail and Tasks app areas
Update functional tests for new sidebar behavior
Update performance tests for new sidebar behavior
Implement a temporarily de-activated, but still checked state for checked collections when users select an OOTB collection while they have user-defined collections overlayed.
Also implement a new icon for unchecked user-defined collections wwhen the user selects an OOTB collection.
fix bug#6642: Selecting multiple entries in sidebar raises exception
Implemented SWAG and confidence based weighting to the first generation project management tool.
problem is detail view is destroyed when a markup bar button is pressed
will try re-setting the focus after the detail view is rebuilt
changed default printing orientation to landscape
this is a temporary change until page setup (below) works completely
it is a good default for calendar printing though
added some page setup printing code
added a "Page Setup..." menu item
"Page Setup" settings are not currently working
Finished up Bug#6500, change wxGrid to do live resizing of rows/cols.
Found the cause of the placement bug with the search field on the toolbar on OS X. Sent details to Stefan so he can come up with the fix. I have a workaround that will work for Chandler, but probably not for the general wx case.
Worked with Stefan on tracking down the cause of a memory corruption realted segfault while running the Functional Tests on OS X. It is definitely related to having the search field on the toolbar, but so far a fix hasn't been found.
Began adding properites to the wx classes for most of the getters and setters.
Built a preview release of wxPython 188.8.131.52 for my testing group to evaluate. Working on integrating fixes and changes suggested by the group.
Various community support activities via email and IRC.
