Question du Jour : (5 min) What's your next challenge?
Alpha4 status : (15 min) We are in debug mode since almost a week now (except for Reid). The bugs have been triaged down but the bug count is still high. We also want alpha4 to be really dogfoodable. Beyond fixing bugs, any suggestion to improve the stability and test coverage of Chandler in the coming weeks?
Alpha5 and beyond : (10 min) Thanks for swagging tasks and bugs. The overall picture is emerging though there's still work to do on my end. Roughly, it looks like we can have an alpha5 by mid December and an alpha6 by mid February. We'll then enter a 6 to 8 weeks period of debug, stabilization, perf improvment and polishing before pushing this Preview out. This is a very rough plan for the moment. Comments?
Issues and Announcements : (10 min) Have something to announce? Please take the stage.
PyCon 2007 paper dead line is Oct 30. Any idea for papers?
Geek Talk: Reiterating the call for this. Any subject you'd like to propose?
Making progress on alpha4 bugs
0.7alpha4 : bugs, tests, etc...
0.7 : Philippe to finish assign bugs and tasks to relevant milestones
Question du Jour : What's your next challenge
Bryan: focusing on the current challenge
Brian: fixing the stamping issues
Philippe: installing pmtool!!
Markku: lots of work to get MVA to run
John hard to focus on running Chandler and debug at the same time on the same machine. Will try to set up another machine with Chandler.
Reid still working on the expando, issue with the order in which blocks are initialized. Will check with John off line.
Jeffrey: we should write functional tests during that time
John: We should try to get Esther to try alpha4 before we finish so we get feedback before we hit RC
Alpha5 and beyond
No comment on that part.
Issues and Announcements
Calconnect (Jeffrey): more energy behind CalDAV than the other times, lots of observers. Lots of interop bugs with Oracle. Interesting chat with the Eventfull people.
DisplayName? We will to get rid of those. Assigned to John.
Forwarding and stamping (Bryan): issue with the attachment. Should we create a new ics? Need to talk to mimi.
PyCon 2007 paper dead line is Oct 30. 3 ideas of presentations/lighting talks:
Philippe and Markku: pmtool
Jeffrey: Subzilla (lightning talk)
Geek Talks: 2 proposed
Katie: Performance testing and diagnosis
Markku: auto tagging (when ready in a couple of weeks)
In SF this week
Email 1.0 meetings and discussions
Adding stamping logic to Forward
Fixing bugs with recent stamping changes
Going to change filter logic on In and Out collections
Reviewing Specs for .7 and 1.0
Fixed snooze reminders
Writing more comprehensive reminder functional tests, and
Working on parsing emails for date/time information. I am able to find the date/time but am not yet successful in changing the date/time displayed in the widgets in the Detail view of the mail message also stamped as calendar event.
Various small stamping related bug
More functional test failure joy
Lots of little keystroke handling issues in the calendar
Talked a lot to Bobby about recurrence in Cosmo
Spent a very long time trying to figure out if my revision #11857 was the source of the functional test failures. In the final analysis the failures were not caused by my revision, instead they were apparently random failures, probably caused by the tinderboxes.
Fix bug#6670: Move left sidebar icon over one pixel
Fix bug#6441: Using Cmd/Ctrl-A when focus is in the Notes field, blanks out DV and selects all rows in Summary table view. r=stearns. The fix was in wxWidgets.
Fix bug#6250: Can't re-subscribe to a calendar after deleting it from the sidebar.
Made good progress on bug#6136: Edit > Delete does nothing right after you share a collection. Tested various fixes, but I still don't have a final solution.
Getting better and better with Lucene.
Learned how tags are going to be implemented in Chandler (thank you Grant).
Learned how to identify new and changed items in Chandler (thank you Andy).
Learned how Lucene indexing is currently being used in Chandler (again thank you Andy).
Waiting forNumPy/SciPy to be included to our Chandler distribution (see discussion and Bug#6806).
Participated in community discussions on automatic tagging.
Currently preparing a new AutoTags parcel that will be used to implement different ideas for automatic tagging. Once finished this will also help community involvement.
Noticed a couple of flaws in our current Feeds parcel implementation. Will probably fix these up when I have more free time.
Got my Mac Pro and installed Windows and Linux under Parallels, so now I'm ready to takle Windows bugs Bug#6746 and Bug#6652, as well as Ubuntu bugs Bug#5822, Bug#6812
I've learned a lot about the architecture of Chandler and specifically Attribute Editors from all this. I will be uploading various diagrams I've made as a result.
Fixed Bug#6792. Don't let the Backspace key be consumed as an accelerator if the currently focused widget is a textctrl.
Fixed Bug#4250 by clipping the left/right edges when drawing the colheader control. The bug also mentions similar changes for the table views, but that will need to be fixed differently (if possible) so I will make it a new task. Bug#6850
Released another 184.108.40.206 preview build to my test group. Worked on fixing the various bugs they found.
Added properties using standard getter/setters for the rest of the wx classes and also the other core and contrib modules.
