= Meetingology =
Meetingology is the development name of the next generation mootbot. It is based on the supybot python IRC bot framework and a total rewrite of the original TCL code of mootbot. The code has come via Debian where it is called meetbot, I have added back some Ubuntuish features, some of which, like voting, will be pushed over to the Debian code.
Line 5: Line 4:
 <'''<<Verbatim(internalkernel)>>'''> o/ It should be command compatible with mootbot. That is to say you should be able to run a meeting with all the normal mootbot commands like #startmeeting and [TOPIC] and [VOTE] etc, but you can also do #topic and #vote if you prefer that syntax.
Line 7: Line 6:
 <'''<<Verbatim(internalkernel)>>'''> :) At the moment meetingology is a rather quiet bot. It doesn't acknowledge receipt of as many commands as mootbot does. It is probably going to do more in terms of private messages to the person using the command, there is a general intention for it to not just repeat what you say in the channel, if it is talking then it should be saying something useful, like the results of a vote.
Line 9: Line 8:
 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> Meeting started who all is here for the meeting? Meetingology does the minutes right. They are in moin wiki syntax
Line 11: Line 10:
 <'''<<Verbatim(magedragon25)>>'''> +1 == Additional commands ==
=== #chair ===
this allows you to nominate an additional chair of the meeting, someone else who can call votes and assign actions and end the meeting etc.
=== #voters ===
This allows you to provide a list of authorised voters, for example if you have a council meeting where 5 people have voting rights, but there might be 20 people discussing things in the meeting when a vote is called only the authorised voters votes will count even if someone else gets confused and tries to vote.
=== #help ===
this actually doesn't do what you might expect, it doesn't give you any help. It is used in a meeting to record a "call for help" or something where volunteers are being sought. This was a Debian innovation which we are leaving in for compatibility more than something we intend to use a lot.
Line 13: Line 18:
 <'''<<Verbatim(internalkernel)>>'''> o/ == bugs ==
 * private votes don't work
 * you can't put other stuff after a vote, so you can do "+1" but not "+1 awesome!! woot!"
 * some formatting issues remain in the moin syntax output
 * it should attempt to change the channel /topic and if that fails, announce the topic in channel. Currently it does both, which is a bug.

 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> so we have release day parties covered

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> i'll participate in a jam day if at all possible. what are the dates? isn't it a string of three days?

 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> late march

 <'''<<Verbatim(magedragon25)>>'''> I think we still need a place for jam days

 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> magedragon25: yes for us in pti area

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> agreed.

 <'''<<Verbatim(magedragon25)>>'''> anyone ask at foothills or krankies?

 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> global jam things need to get firmed up pretty quick

 <'''<<Verbatim(magedragon25)>>'''> yeah

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> krankies might work for pti, but i'm not sure about foothills. unless we can have a room there, and i don't even know if they have wifi.

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> wifi is a necessity, and i don't have a mifi.

 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> family friendly

 <'''<<Verbatim(magedragon25)>>'''> I've seen a room the one time I went to foothills, and I hear thay have wifi....but how big of a room do we need

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> i've been in rooms at foothills (one up and one down) and they are plenty big unless you have over say 20 people.

 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> magedragon25: i've reserved the room at street level to the right

 <'''<<Verbatim(magedragon25)>>'''> ok

 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> [TOPIC] Team Approval

 <'''<<Verbatim(magedragon25)>>'''> +1

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> i'm not aware of any headway being made in the approval process, just that we're trying to more or less get stuff ready to start the process

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> akgraner would likely know more, as she has contact with some of those types of folks that might actually do the approving ...

 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> current sandbox

 <'''<<Verbatim(akgraner)>>'''> BugeyeD, we can get a couple people to look at the sandbox _marx_ is referring to..

 <'''<<Verbatim(nameiner)>>'''> I have pics from the last release party

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> i've been to several ubuntu days and completely forgot about taking pictures.

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> i've tried to document them, though.

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> i'll try to work on wiki format this weekend.

 <'''<<Verbatim(akgraner)>>'''> so any events any of us have written/documented we need to put links on the approval wiki

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> okay, where's the approval page?

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> is that the roadmap page?

 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> sandbox

 <'''<<Verbatim(BugeyeD)>>'''> i created sandbox so that i could mess with formatting without screwing up any of the official pages. has that become the approval page?

 <'''<<Verbatim(akgraner)>>'''> _marx_, can you just rename sandbox to something like NCApprovalPage

 <'''<<Verbatim(_marx_)>>'''> BugeyeD: no

 <'''<<Verbatim(akgraner)>>'''> or just create it..

Meetingology

Meetingology is the development name of the next generation mootbot. It is based on the supybot python IRC bot framework and a total rewrite of the original TCL code of mootbot. The code has come via Debian where it is called meetbot, I have added back some Ubuntuish features, some of which, like voting, will be pushed over to the Debian code.

It should be command compatible with mootbot. That is to say you should be able to run a meeting with all the normal mootbot commands like #startmeeting and [TOPIC] and [VOTE] etc, but you can also do #topic and #vote if you prefer that syntax.

At the moment meetingology is a rather quiet bot. It doesn't acknowledge receipt of as many commands as mootbot does. It is probably going to do more in terms of private messages to the person using the command, there is a general intention for it to not just repeat what you say in the channel, if it is talking then it should be saying something useful, like the results of a vote.

Meetingology does the minutes right. They are in moin wiki syntax

Additional commands

#chair

this allows you to nominate an additional chair of the meeting, someone else who can call votes and assign actions and end the meeting etc.

#voters

This allows you to provide a list of authorised voters, for example if you have a council meeting where 5 people have voting rights, but there might be 20 people discussing things in the meeting when a vote is called only the authorised voters votes will count even if someone else gets confused and tries to vote.

bugs

  • private votes don't work
  • you can't put other stuff after a vote, so you can do "+1" but not "+1 awesome!! woot!"
  • some formatting issues remain in the moin syntax output
  • it should attempt to change the channel /topic and if that fails, announce the topic in channel. Currently it does both, which is a bug.
