[13:11:22] <charlie-tca> [TOPIC] Old Business
[13:11:43] <charlie-tca> I don't have any old business to continue today. Is there any I forgot?
[13:12:17] <mr_pouit> no, I think it's ok
[13:12:19] <charlie-tca> [TOPIC] Team updates (Packaging, Bug Triage, Development / Coding, Testing, Documentation, Artwork)
[13:12:30] <charlie-tca> Great, lets move on.
[13:12:46] <charlie-tca> mr_pouit, got an update for development?
[13:13:08] <mr_pouit> Uploaded new releases of xfce4-notifyd, xfce4-appfinder, xfwm4, ristretto, xfce4-dev-tools, xfce4-volumed a few days ago.
[13:13:26] <mr_pouit> Waiting for the alpha 1 before uploading xfce4-panel :p
[13:13:35] <charlie-tca> Great!
[13:13:52] <charlie-tca> Testing the images already. They are all working for Xubuntu
[13:14:04] <mr_pouit> nice
[13:14:17] <charlie-tca> Anything else, mr_pouit ?
[13:14:51] <mr_pouit> nope
[13:15:11] <charlie-tca> Thank you very much.
[13:15:19] <thorwil> charlie-tca: hi! please ping me if artwork becomes a topic
[13:15:24] <charlie-tca> Artwork is next
[13:15:35] <charlie-tca> We have some submissions already for new wallpaper
[13:15:40] <thorwil> ah, great timing :)
[13:15:46] <charlie-tca> thorwil has done a great job getting us specs
[13:15:53] <charlie-tca> heh
[13:16:02] <charlie-tca> thorwil, got anything you can say here?
[13:16:09] <thorwil> yes
[13:16:36] <charlie-tca> Please go ahead
[13:16:37] <thorwil> i wrote a script that produces a "screenshot" with transparent desktop
[13:16:58] <thorwil> so you get an image with panels, icons, any window that was up
[13:17:14] <thorwil> that can be overlayed on wallpaper proposals
[13:17:44] <charlie-tca> wow
[13:17:59] <thorwil> so we will need screenshots that show the xubuntu theme
[13:18:29] <thorwil> but what are the plans regarding icons and gtk-theme?
[13:18:54] <thorwil> like mentioned earlier, adjusting the gtk-theme to fit a wallpaper would also make sense
[13:19:01] <charlie-tca> ochosi is working on faenza icon set for xubuntu
[13:19:25] <charlie-tca> and I think he is also doing something to the bluebird theme to make it work better
[13:19:44] <mr_pouit> greybird yeah
[13:19:53] <charlie-tca> He said the theme is http://shimmerproject.org/hg/bluebird-colors -> greybird
[13:20:10] <charlie-tca> and the icons are # Old business
[13:20:10] <charlie-tca> # Team updates (Packaging, Bug Triage, Development / Coding, Testing, Documentation, Artwork)
[13:20:10] <charlie-tca> # Announcements
[13:20:10] <charlie-tca> # Governance structure
[13:20:11] <charlie-tca> # Any Other Business
[13:20:17] <charlie-tca> huh
[13:20:21] <mr_pouit> oops :p
[13:20:33] <charlie-tca> http://shimmerproject.org/hg/faenza-xfce
[13:20:52] <thorwil> charlie-tca: so basically ochosi is in charge there?
[13:21:21] <charlie-tca> sure
[13:21:47] <charlie-tca> He seems willing to be very helpful
[13:22:12] <thorwil> single person to talk to sure makes things easy :)
[13:22:20] <charlie-tca> I agree
[13:22:35] <charlie-tca> Will you get with him, then?
[13:22:41] <thorwil> yes
[13:22:52] <mr_pouit> (btw, I've been using greybird for a week now, and I like it )
[13:24:13] <charlie-tca> :-)
[13:24:18] <charlie-tca> Thank you, thorwil
[13:24:37] <charlie-tca> I have tripped long enough on that artwork, maybe
[13:25:46] <thorwil> np :)
[13:25:57] <charlie-tca> I like the idea of using a script to see what really works well together.
[13:26:28] <charlie-tca> Anything else on artwork?
[13:26:53] <thorwil> not as far as i'm concerned
[13:27:01] <charlie-tca> I am seeing some really nice looking submissions coming in. I am grateful to those artists for trying.
[13:27:19] <charlie-tca> [TOPIC] Testing and Bug Triage
[13:27:37] <charlie-tca> Alpha1 is looking good.
[13:27:52] <charlie-tca> It should get out today or, at the latest, tomorrow
[13:28:25] <charlie-tca> Bugs are falling behind a bit, but will be looked at real soon
[13:28:44] <charlie-tca> [TOPIC] Announcements
[13:29:05] <charlie-tca> The only announcement I have today is the alpha1 will not have powerpc or ps3 images
[13:29:12] <charlie-tca> Are there any others?
[13:29:30] <mr_pouit> ok, as expected
[13:29:49] <charlie-tca> [TOPIC] Governance structure
[13:30:21] <charlie-tca> Nominations for Xubuntu Project Lead are due to the Community Council by December 15
[13:30:42] <charlie-tca> Feel free to nominate yourselves or someone you think will be good for the project
[13:31:15] <charlie-tca> Any questions on the nomination process?
[13:31:36] <charlie-tca> [TOPIC] Any Other Business
[13:31:45] <charlie-tca> Anyone have anything to bring up?
[13:31:56] <mr_pouit> yeah
[13:32:04] <charlie-tca> Please go ahead, mr_pouit
[13:32:21] <mr_pouit> I'm wondering if we should switch from notify-osd to xfce4-notifyd
[13:32:35] <mr_pouit> the new release just uploaded in natty supports many features
[13:33:02] <mr_pouit> I'll probably mail xubuntu-devel@ about that
[13:33:24] <charlie-tca> soren, are you thinking about backporting it to Maverick and Lucid then?
[13:33:51] <charlie-tca> soren, are you thinking about backporting it to Maverick and Lucid then?
[13:33:52] <soren> charlie-tca: it?
[13:34:06] <charlie-tca> sorry, soren. something wrong with my xchat.
[13:34:13] <soren> mkey
[13:34:18] <charlie-tca> mr_pouit, are you thinking about backporting it?
[13:35:13] <mr_pouit> charlie-tca: it depends on the 4.7 libraries, so it's not really easy to do
[13:35:31] <charlie-tca> Okay
[13:35:51] <charlie-tca> But you mention switching to it. That would be for Natty, then?
[13:36:40] <mr_pouit> yeah yeah, I won't change a previous release, of course
[13:37:26] <charlie-tca> Okay. I like the idea, myself
[13:37:53] <charlie-tca> Can we just do it as a trial and see where it goes?
[13:38:16] <mr_pouit> yep, good idea
[13:38:22] <charlie-tca> Thanks
[13:38:40] <charlie-tca> anything else for discussion?
[13:39:18] <charlie-tca> Everyone is welcome to grap the images for testing today.
[13:39:24] <charlie-tca> s/grap/grab
[13:39:30] <mr_pouit> I'll send a more detailed mail to -devel then :)
[13:39:35] <mr_pouit> nothing left from me :)
[13:39:50] * charlie-tca nods
