Oct 17 12:04 <chen> Lets get started...
Oct 17 12:05 <chen> Let me start with updates from srag
Oct 17 12:05 <chen> He will be creating a branch for openchange for the exchange 2007 development
Oct 17 12:06 <chen> There is the first development release coming up for evolution-2.21.x coming october 29th
Oct 17 12:07 <chen> One of the features that's going to be added for it is google calendar!
Oct 17 12:08 <chen> I think we might also support the mono plugins. Keep your fingers crossed for updates from sankar!
Oct 17 12:08 <schooms> cool !!
Oct 17 12:08 <chen> We need to review all the critical patches for the release...
Oct 17 12:10 <chen> Updates from my side, have been in touch with the Ebby (the Soc who did the google calendar stuff), reviewing/testing his patch more. I will listing the features which the initial patch will contain and he would be enhancing furture during the following dot release
Oct 17 12:10 <chen> By the end of 2.22 we would have a complete google calendar functionality in evolution!
Oct 17 12:10 <chen> Lets go around the room now...

Oct 17 12:15 <chen> jony: so the patches for the 2007 would be committed in the openchange branch and will be upstreamed for evo-2.22, right ?

Oct 17 12:16 <mcrha> I'm just playing with bug, you know
Oct 17 12:16 * andre stole last week's hacking time of mcrha :-P
Oct 17 12:17 <schooms> chen: nope.. just getting the openchange stuff to work now !!
Oct 17 12:17 <chen> schooms: good!
Oct 17 12:17 * luckybharath is invisible :(
Oct 17 12:17 <chen> srinidhi: any updates for us ?
Oct 17 12:18 <mcrha> chen, I had only two things for psankar and mbarnes, but none of theme here, so I've nothing
Oct 17 12:18 <chen> ah I missed u
Oct 17 12:18 <luckybharath> :)
Oct 17 12:18 <chen> luckybharath: updates ?
Oct 17 12:18 <luckybharath> chen: me trying my hands on pst import. just some reading on it. figured out some of the changes in the file formats. will speed up on tht.
Oct 17 12:18 <srinidhi> chen: nope.. :)
Oct 17 12:18 <luckybharath> chen: there will be some good progress by the end of this week :)
Oct 17 12:18 <chen> mcrha: oh ok, the patch reviews ?
Oct 17 12:19 <chen> luckybharath: gr8
Oct 17 12:19 <mcrha> nono, I saw log from last meeting (which I missed) and psankar mentioned there he will write 7 steps how to create plugins, so I just want to say him that he should mention there to people honor functions prototypes
Oct 17 12:20 <mcrha> and mbarnes said there something about changelogs which I don't understand, it was something like "write there what, not where" or something. What does it mean?
Oct 17 12:21 <andre> mcrha: don't write "fixed bug 123456", but explain what exactly the bug was about :)
Oct 17 12:21 <chen> mcrha: hmm
Oct 17 12:21 <chen> mcrha: you got the answer :)
Oct 17 12:22 <mcrha> so, too hard to explain a bug, sometimes
Oct 17 12:22 <andre> ...so distros don't have to look up every single bug report, but can just consider by reading the changelog entry if they should ship the patch
Oct 17 12:22 <mcrha> it's a bad idea to ship only a part of release, definitely ;)
Oct 17 12:23 <chen> yes I second andre and we all need to follow that
Oct 17 12:23 <andre> mcrha: tell that to ubuntu and novell-suse :)
Oct 17 12:23 <mcrha> just forward them when you meet them ;)
Oct 17 12:23 <andre> hehe
Oct 17 12:23 * jony remembers a ML thread on this
Oct 17 12:23 <chen> andre: hmm we all are here
Oct 17 12:23 <andre> distro policies...
Oct 17 12:24 <chen> andre: what's that you want to convey ? ;)
Oct 17 12:24 <chen> apart from changelogs ofcourse
Oct 17 12:24 <andre> i refered to the backport policy of suse and ubuntu. instead of shipping the latest release, you have to beg for backporting patches sometimes.
Oct 17 12:24 * andre is writing this wearing his release-team hat
Oct 17 12:25 <andre> but that's not the hackers' fault, it's a management decision. so i don't blame you :)
Oct 17 12:25 <chen> andre: I hope they are shipping the latest stable release
Oct 17 12:26 <andre> for suse10.2, i sometimes had a lot of discussions about shipping crasher fixes. anyway, move on with evo stuff, i got to get some breakfast :-)
Oct 17 12:26 <chen> hehe
Oct 17 12:26 <chen> andre: there are lot things which has changed from 10.3
Oct 17 12:26 <andre> yepp, looking really forward to that
Oct 17 12:27 <andre> menza! i'm out! happy hacking :-)
Oct 17 12:27 * andre has quit (later...)
Oct 17 12:27 <chen> Ok that's all for this week. Lets meet next week again with more updates ...
Oct 17 12:28 <mcrha> hopefully ;)
Oct 17 12:28 <chen> Please feel free to mail srag if you have any queries ...
