= 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 4: Line 4:
Meeting started by daubers at 19:00:00 UTC. The full logs are available
at tests/ukmeet.log.html .
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:
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 8: Line 8:
Meetingology does the minutes right. They are in moin wiki syntax
Line 9: Line 10:
== Meeting summary == == 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.

== 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.

 19:04:30 <The_Toxic_Mite> oops, present

 19:04:37 <daubers> How goes said reporting?

 19:04:41 <Daviey> Ok, deadline for April is technically this Sunday

 19:04:58 <Daviey> I've today posted to the LoCo list

 19:05:06 <Daviey> asking people to add activities

 19:05:20 * brobostigon read it.

 19:05:30 <Daviey> https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-uk/2010-April/023790.html

 19:05:54 <Daviey> Essentially, it's a call for people to add anything they have achieved in April

 19:06:02 <Daviey> (or the LoCo)

 19:06:24 <Daviey> I'm going to poke a few people that i know have achieved stuff

 19:06:39 <Daviey> if people present could do that also, it would be grand

 19:06:48 <daubers> Excellent :)

 19:06:51 <brobostigon> willdo Daviey

 19:06:52 <brobostigon> :)

 19:07:11 <daubers> [ACTION] People who have achieved something in April, please place it in the report

 19:07:21 <brobostigon> :)

 19:07:26 <daubers> Shall we move on?

 19:07:27 <brobostigon> agreed.

 19:07:41 <daubers> [PROGRESS REPORT] AlanBell to find out what happened at the manchester jam

 19:07:45 <AlanBell> the manchester jam occured and seems to have gone well, MunkyJunky talked about it on the full circle podcast

 19:07:45 <Daviey> ta

 19:07:54 <Daviey> present btw :)

 19:08:05 <MunkyJunky> It did go well!

 19:08:16 <AlanBell> http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/team/51/detail/

 19:08:36 <daubers> Excellent, well done to those that organised it

 19:09:12 <daubers> Moving on?

 19:09:15 <AlanBell> yup

 19:09:18 <daubers> [PROGRESS REPORT] Daviey and czajkowski to do more publicity on the geeknic

 19:09:41 <daubers> Daviey?

 19:10:49 <daubers> czajkowski?

 19:11:05 <Daviey> no action from here.

 19:11:18 <brobostigon> she was talking about it in #ubuntu-uk not long ago.

 19:11:36 <daubers> Ok, can we someone volunteer to post to the mailing list?

 19:12:34 <daubers> [ACTION] Daubers to either poke czajkowski to or get himself to send a mail to the -uk list this evning about the geeknic in Liverpool

 19:12:42 <daubers> Ok, next

 19:12:52 <daubers> [PROGRESS REPORT] daubers to put support guidelines in a wiki page prior to next meeting

 19:13:01 <daubers> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UKTeam/Support_Guidelines

 19:13:07 <brobostigon> :)

 19:13:27 <brobostigon> iam happy with it, right now.

 19:13:29 <daubers> I've popped these on the wiki now, and (think) I dropped an email to the list.

 19:13:38 <daubers> I'll go further into this in a second

 19:13:45 <daubers> since thats the end of the last meetings actions

 19:13:59 <daubers> [TOPIC] Daubers - Support Guidelines

 19:14:04 <brobostigon> Do we need to do a review of those proposedguidelines?

 19:14:46 <daubers> As I said these are now on the wiki, an I believe I emailed the mailing list. Do people want time to review them further and me to push them a bit more, or how would people like to proceed?

 19:15:13 <brobostigon> i would like to be able to review them, please.

 19:15:47 <AlanBell> would be good to share them about at UDS

 19:15:53 <daubers> Ok, are there any major failings in the proposed guidelines?

 19:16:13 <brobostigon> daubers: not that i can immediatly remember, no.

 19:16:16 <daubers> AlanBell: Would you be happy to do that? I'm not going

 19:16:29 <daubers> Work, money and stuff are in the way

 19:16:33 <AlanBell> I see no failures, but they can probably be expanded on over time

 19:16:52 <AlanBell> yes I can try and talk to other teams about them at UDS

 19:16:56 <brobostigon> I would be happier with review before proper adoption.

 19:17:18 <daubers> Awesome, if anyone thinks it would help, I'm happy to do a session at oggcamp

 19:17:21 <brobostigon> and good scruteny.

 19:17:54 <Yorvyk> I think they need to bee used to see if they work

 19:18:03 <AlanBell> an oggcamp session would be great

 19:18:42 <daubers> So, if I do an oggcamp session and write up some bits, are we happy to do a trial implimentation as of next week and then a review afterwards?

 19:18:56 <AlanBell> I am

 19:18:57 <daubers> See if I can organise a meeting dedicated to that [TOPIC]

 19:19:20 <daubers> [ACTION] Daubers to write a tal for Oggcamp on the proposed support guidelines

 19:19:44 <daubers> Do we want to vote on a trial implimentation?

 19:19:44 <brobostigon> ok.

 19:19:57 <AlanBell> ok

 19:19:58 <brobostigon> after review,yes.

 19:20:00 <The_Toxic_Mite> ok

 19:20:21 <brobostigon> not before.

 19:20:58 <daubers> brobostigon: Not sure there's a lot to review initially. They're set out fairly plainly in the wiki page. There will be a lot of wiggle room in the trial as well

 19:21:36 <BigRedS_> I'd suggest a trial to find out what needs adding. I've had a skim and there appears to be vagueness rather than anything likely disagreeable

 19:21:37 <brobostigon> daubers: i mean, for any big issues, thats all, or any possible additions or changes.

 19:21:53 <daubers> brobostigon: I think a trial would be best to hilight that (personally)

 19:22:10 <daubers> If it all fails during the trial then obviously it'll get pulled and discussed further

 19:22:22 <brobostigon> daubers: true, but a "not firm trial" rather thandefinate firm trial.

 19:22:35 <daubers> Yes, as I said, wit a lot of wiggle room

 19:22:46 <brobostigon> ok,

 19:22:49 <AlanBell> more of a beta than a release candidate

 19:22:54 <brobostigon> i am happy.

 19:22:58 <daubers> [VOTE] Should we have a beta trial of the support guidelines, followed by a meeting to review them?

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.

#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.

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.
