02:51.12olly_DaSpirit: you aren't asked to give an email address for the org
02:51.26DaSpiritWell, I mean for filling out the form.
02:51.37olly_the admin signs up (and gives their email)
02:52.00olly_then they fill in an org application (and there isn't a question asking for an email for the org)
02:52.30DaSpiritThe admin should sign up for a gmail?
02:52.39DaSpiritEh Google Account?
02:52.48DaSpiritSo it should be personal of the admin?
02:53.00olly_you need a google account (which isn't exactly the same as a gmail account)
02:53.10olly_i think it should be
02:53.29MatthewWilkesIt should, as the backup admin will need an account, too. As do all the mentors.
02:53.55MatthewWilkesYou can make the org account a backup admin, but you should have personal accounts for the main ones, imho.
02:54.19olly_it just seems to be asking for nobody to take ownership of an issue, if nothing else
02:54.49MatthewWilkesYou need to sign an agreement as part of the signup, too, which probably makes assumptions about you being a natural person

04:25.51REDACTEDWhat steps will you take to encourage students to interact with your project's community before and during the program?*
04:25.59REDACTEDwhat exactly are you guys looking for as an answer to this?
04:26.15Cervatorexactly what it sounds like? :-)
04:26.24REDACTEDi focused my answer on basically, find out what the students interests are and see if we can incorporate that into our goals
04:26.28Cervatorhow will you reach out to them? keep in touch? keep them engaged? etc
04:26.52REDACTEDCervator, alright sounds like i got a good answer right?
04:27.28Cervatorthat's one thing, yeah - another suggestion, for instance, have a community event online - find a game everybody enjoys and set up a multiplayer session or something like that
04:27.48REDACTEDoh i didn't know we could go into that
04:27.52Cervatormaybe there's a weekend game hackathon somewhere you can participate in separately as a team
04:27.56DaSpiritOh, we have events in our community.
04:27.57REDACTEDyes definitely we can do those sort of things if people want
04:28.05DaSpiritREDACTED, like that new event, where you can win a prize.
04:28.21REDACTEDCervator, we also (we're a game engine) we have a competition of our own that users can participate and win prizes

04:44.19umcculloughwhy didn't you know?
04:44.58DaSpiritCan we add more ideas tomorrow?
04:45.03DaSpiritI mean after the deadline?
04:45.10stqismYou can try!
04:45.12umcculloughi asked carol about that
04:45.13DaSpiritDo they get checked immediately?
04:45.15olly_yes, but they start reviewing right away
04:45.31olly_so they'll likely see the page as it is at the dealine
04:45.32umcculloughi would try to get it all in place before the deadline just in case
04:45.40stqismYou could always hope they haven't checked yet, but I wouldn't risk it.
04:45.59umcculloughimagines them using google cache to freeze each ideas page in time
04:46.17stqismThat would be kinda funny
04:46.37DaSpiritHow many ideas is generally recommended?
04:46.46umcculloughas many as possible?
04:46.55umcculloughyou want to give students a lot of options
04:46.58DaSpiritWe started with 10, but then reduced to 5 because some were too easy.
04:47.07umcculloughyeah that's tough
04:47.08olly_it doesn't make sense to have hundreds of ideas if you've only 3 mentors
04:47.20olly_it'll just be too daunting to students
04:47.22umccullougholly_, true, but it gives students a wider variety to choose from
04:47.33umcculloughif they're too easy, then it won't be very useful
04:47.56umccullough5 isn't bad, how many mentors?
04:48.03olly_if you are that size org, I doubt you can come up with 100s of ideas which are actually very different to each other
04:48.16DaSpiritumccullough, 2 confirmed.
04:48.31umcculloughwell, it's also common that a student will propose a completely different idea that is good
04:48.48umcculloughwell... maybe not "common", but not uncommon either
04:49.10olly_the FAQ says some of the best ideas come from students, which is true
04:49.21olly_but some of the very worst do too

04:58.08stqismYou don't really  want to wait this far on
04:58.09olly_yes, but if the ideas list isn't good, you are unlikely to get selected

04:59.01Cervatoryep :-)
04:59.35olly_i really need to go and wash up, but i'll take a look in a few minutes
04:59.54Cervator1) Do an introduction about your organization and what you do

05:02.25REDACTEDour 3rd potential one is MIA
05:02.51Cervatornot that i'm any sort of gsoc official but i can imagine only having 1-2 mentors is a red flag - if just one if you go MIA the whole project might be in jeopardy

05:06.21umcculloughsilly procrastinators
05:07.33umcculloughas for mentors, if you can drum up a couple "backup" mentors, that's always good
05:07.50umcculloughthese would be people who pick up the slack when the official mentors are unavailable
05:08.03umcculloughis usually a backup mentor
05:08.56umcculloughwhile our org has ~13 mentors, we usually only request 5 or 6 slots
05:09.31umcculloughthat way there's plenty of help to go around, and no student should be left idle

15:25.36Cervatornowhere just yet, you just need a single backup administrator so far
15:25.42tlsaah, OK thanks
15:26.23tlsashould I mention their names in the mentor questionnaire question?
15:26.46Cervatori just put in the rough number we have
15:26.53Cervatori don't think names would matter yet

16:05.44Cervatoryep :-)

16:37.07meflinsome ppl just cant put off procrastination
16:37.22MatthewWilkescarols: I guess a lot of people got bitten by the fact you need two admin profiles before you can submit
16:37.23stqismBetter cutting it close than late.
16:37.31carolsMatthewWilkes: really? that's absurd
16:37.32MatthewWilkesI know that delayed us by a couple of days know...
16:37.37carolsits required!
16:37.46stqismThe 2 admin thing really isn't a proble
16:37.57stqismProblem with you signed up 2 weeks earlier.
16:38.14MatthewWilkescarols: Sure, but it means you need to get your backup admin to go on and set up a profile. With timezones that's easily a fair delay.
16:38.58carolsMatthewWilkes: right, and 2 weeks surely isn't enough time to do that.
16:39.02carolsyou surely need more than that :-P
16:39.37umcculloughcarols, maybe people were afraid to submit it early because they didn't know they could edit it?
16:39.48umcculloughand wanted to keep updating it until the last minute offline
16:39.51carolsumccullough: even though it says it on the first page you visit of the application?
16:39.56MatthewWilkescarols: hah, no, I'm just saying it's probably a contributing factor. Especially for new orgs that don't already have people lined up.
16:39.58umcculloughpeople never read ;)

17:27.15meflinwell a tea break is required after the post close whining and starting to review
17:27.27carolsi completely agree, meflin
17:27.48stqismBut who else is going to tell people that they missed the deadline?
17:27.50meflinwe should start a pool on how many ask for extensions today
17:27.54umcculloughit does say the review starts on the 17th in the timeline, so maybe next year clarify that the review starts immediately on the deadline ;)
17:27.56meflinI go with 12
17:28.13carolsumccullough: sure, ill make a note of it for next yer
17:28.22carolsmeflin: i'm pessimistic. i say 20.
17:28.30DaSpiritIs the 24th still the announcement date?
17:28.36DaSpiritFor accepted projects?
17:28.39meflinmy betting strategy is to go low :)
17:28.44carolsDaSpirit: what's listed on the timeline?
17:28.51DaSpiritThe 24th.
17:28.53carolsdo you think we've changed it?
17:28.55stqismmeflin: Put me down for 10, I'll throw you a Tox sticker if you beat me
17:29.04DaSpiritYou guys seemed to have changed the review date.
17:29.29carolsDaSpirit: right.
17:30.55gevaertsThe review date shouldn't be important
17:31.07edsiperjust do a little smile
17:31.23DaSpiritReview date is important to me :/
17:31.42DaSpiritMy org founder is traveling.
17:31.50gevaertsIf you pretend that the review starts on the 17th, based on applications as they stand at the application deadline, there's no conflict at all
17:32.02stqismNext year we should throw in a Markov chain to answer questions.

21:42.10gevaertsdom96: of course, those links are far from universally recognised :)

21:43.17unitraxxSlurpee: definitely no problem, I ended up with a great organization anyway :)
21:43.27Slurpeeunitraxx, cool. Which org?
21:44.08SlurpeeLooks fun.
21:45.09Slurpeeunitraxx, what type of code is  SuperTuxKart?
21:45.28unitraxxthe client is just C++
21:45.33unitraxxnothing to special actually
21:45.39unitraxxgraphics is a fork of irrlicht
21:45.44unitraxxphysics, bullet
21:45.57unitraxxthe multiplayer features I implemented contact a server running PHP
21:46.04unitraxx(was my gsoc project)
21:46.27Slurpeeunitraxx, what was php's purpose?
21:46.36unitraxxaccount registration etc
21:47.03unitraxxwe have a web client as well for addons (new tracks, karts)
21:47.05olly_dom96: i don't think it should - we link IRC to here, which is more helpful than just an irc: URL which may not work for everyone -
21:47.11unitraxxso the account system is integrated with that
21:47.34olly_perhaps it should check it's actually a URL though
21:47.42dom96olly_: I see. That's a good point, although melange should at least say that they are expecting a URL though.
21:48.02dom96ah, we agree heh.
21:48.09unitraxxSlurpee: I'm not sure if I would have picked PHP myself, if I had to start from scratch
21:48.52gevaertsI know I have *no* idea how an IRC URL would be expected to get from my web browser to my irc client :)
21:49.31unitraxxgevaerts: your browser should normally let you select a program the first time you try to open it
21:49.39dom96gevaerts: It works for xchat on Windows for me.
21:49.42unitraxxand you could let it default then to the selected program
21:49.47gevaertsunitraxx: you're making a few assumtions there that may not be valid :)
21:50.03gevaertsSuch as that my irc client *handles* urls, and that it's running on the same system

21:50.11unitraxxgevaerts: valid points
21:50.48Slurpeeunitraxx, php is perfect for user registration/authentication. Did you connect/authenticate with any 3rd parties such as fb/tw?
21:52.07unitraxxSlurpee: no. And at the time of writing my proposal and doing my actual project I wasn't a fan myself of using fb or so for authentication
21:52.35unitraxxbut being a few months wiser now, I think I'd prefer 3rd party authentication

21:54.17unitraxxSlurpee: I do think a reasonably large amount of users would be mad if they _had_ to use fb to be able to use online multiplayer features
21:54.47umcculloughas in facebook? do people use that?
21:55.00stqismYeah, I hated lyft. Had to reactivate my Facebook to get a driver.
21:55.35Slurpeeunitraxx, majority of websites with authenticated users utilize "social logins" these days. The funny part is that companies pay big money for Janrain to provide a "simple turn key solution" - yet all of these authentication systems provide basic APIs.
21:56.16umcculloughi've missed out on quite a few things in the recent years that require a facebook account
21:56.29umcculloughoh well
21:56.34SlurpeeI've helped several projects "ditch janrain" by writing custom authentication code for whatever services client can dream of.
21:56.55stqism>not designing decentralized uncertainties

22:00.28Slurpeeolly_, unitraxx, umccullough - interesting topic about forcing social login/registration (normal email registration disabled).  On of my projects requested it, I advised against it, but client insisted on it based on some report. Long story worked out well. No one really complained and it helped with spam.
22:01.09olly_yeah, because not just anyone can sign up for facebook
22:01.15unitraxxSlurpee: what kind of project was it?

22:02.23olly_"No one really complained" is telling really
22:02.43Slurpeeunitraxx, - click "create an account" in top right corner and you will see.
22:02.56olly_unless it's a site I'd really miss, I'll just go for a rival site which does allow me to sign up sanely
22:03.19unitraxxhmm startup community, that's actually the exact audience I'd expect to complain about it
22:04.23unitraxxSlurpee: I only have the option to use linkedin?
22:05.07unitraxxSlurpee: nvm adblock filtered out the other options
22:05.08Slurpeeat the moment, client is using fb/tw/li. they change it time to time.
22:06.55Slurpeeunitraxx, interesting Drupal fact, you're not really supposed to have a user account with no email address. Email addresses are totally unique and can't be duplicated across users. However, you can code it to work if needed. It was a fairly "radical" task request.
22:08.32Slurpeeunitraxx, I believe the real value of forcing social login/registration is pulling in profile fields with avatar for users from the 3rd party. Diff 3rd parties provide more info than others.
22:09.13unitraxxI definitely see the advantages
22:09.49umcculloughSlurpee, even though I have a g+ account, I *hate* having to use it for anything besides google services
22:10.19umcculloughi disagree with the concept of "network everyone!"
22:10.26umcculloughat least as far as privacy concerns go
22:10.46umcculloughas such, i've been unable to access services that I otherwise might have wanted to access :/
22:10.58umcculloughit's my choice of cours
22:11.35umcculloughas for complaints, I have emailed companies in the past to tell them how I feel, but have never received a response, so i gave up
22:12.06unitraxxumccullough: what would you think about mozilla persona?
22:12.07Slurpeeumccullough, same here. I personally rarely utilize social authentication. Our dev team setup "real fake personas" for client social networks.  My fake person is on all the social networks and authenticates everywhere for testing :)
22:12.14meflinI dont use any social media account for any login never will
22:12.17unitraxx"The privacy goal is motivated by the fact that the identity provider does not know which website the user is identifying."
22:12.33umcculloughunitraxx, i dunno, i haven't looked at it
22:12.39umcculloughsounds interesting
22:12.49unitraxxit lets you use your Google account
22:12.55unitraxxwithout google knowing that you visited the site
22:12.56umcculloughalso, i always hoped openid would get more popular
22:13.21meflinthe only time I've ever crossed uses is having to get gmail to do gsoc
22:13.48Slurpeefeels social authenticate is always trying to sneak up on him
22:14.17umcculloughin the grand scheme of things, I suspect the use of facebook or g+ logins to authenticate is largely about tracking people
22:14.26umcculloughand i fundamentally disagree with it :)
22:14.37meflinI dont actually care
22:14.53meflinthis thing is this that thing is that
22:14.57meflinno co-mingling

22:22.41Ivanovicokay, at wesnoth we have taken our time since we wanted to discuss first if we want to go for it
22:22.49Ivanovicand for us the best time to do this is during fosdem
22:23.09Ivanovicbut our "generic" information only needs slight adjustments and the rest are the ideas
22:23.18Ivanovictight fit but works out...
22:23.29unitraxxI started our organization's idea list already in November
22:23.31meflinwell that is a veteran perspective to be fair

22:24.11Ivanovicmeflin: sure, it is very much the veteran view
22:24.25Ivanovicstill when we did this the first time we also discussed "do we want this?" during fosdem

22:29.28Ivanovicat fosdem it is somehow more organized and split into real topics not just "we take an hour or two for game stuff"
22:29.30meflinIvanovic: heh well perhaps that is my complaint ;)
22:29.35Ivanovichi carols
22:29.40carolshi Ivanovic

22:30.08Ivanovicdo you prefer pills or do you directly take it into your veins?
22:30.19carolsIvanovic: i prefer tea.
22:30.35DaSpirit-MobileCarols what letter you up to?
22:30.36Ivanovicmeflin: this years topics:
22:30.43unitraxxIvanovic: so you were in the hack rooms most of the time?
22:30.45meflincarols: the tea has been given :D
22:31.04Ivanovicunitraxx: on saturday i organized the games room including giving a talk
22:31.10meflinIvanovic: nice list to bad its a bit to expensive for me to go
22:31.21Ivanovicon sunday we just were in the hacking room preparing e.g. for gsoc
22:31.37stqismYou have a hacking room?
22:31.43Ivanovicthis year there are video recordings!

22:32.00umcculloughcarols, have there been any private requests for extensions that count toward the total?
22:32.03Ivanovicwhich can be used by anybody who is there
22:32.19meflinIvanovic: thanks!
22:32.19stqismIvanovic: Haha, my mistake.
22:32.52meflinumccullough: hmm is that cheeting?
22:32.53Ivanovicmeflin: and the talks were even in a livestream!
22:33.03umcculloughmeflin, hm?
22:33.08Ivanovicumccullough: i thought the deadline was a *real* deadline
22:33.20meflinIvanovic: dang .. so I can be a total shut in introvert and get my gaming fix?
22:33.21umcculloughIvanovic, it is :)
22:33.21Ivanoviclike "there is no good enough reason for an extension, whatever you come up with!"
22:33.30Ivanovicmeflin: absolutely
22:33.36meflinI like :D
22:33.49Ivanovicthat is: during the openpandora talk i received some questions from folks from irc which I asked ED
22:34.00Ivanovicthose folks were watching the live stream
22:34.09meflinumccullough: do private's count? this is back to the $ day questing I think
22:34.34meflinnot that it maters since the count is 1
22:34.44umcculloughi don't know - it started with carol proposing that she expected a certain number of extension requests, but she didn't mention whether they would be public or not i think
22:35.01unitraxxSlurpee: how did you become the admin for drupal actually? Is that something you just proposed and everyone was fine with that?
22:35.09gevaertsThe most impressive thing about fosdem is that it's so well run, given the constraints
22:35.27Ivanovicgevaerts: absolutely
22:35.31meflinI'll have to pay more atention to fosdem
22:35.43Ivanovicit was astounishing how they managed the video recording of the 22 devrooms

22:35.55gevaertsI mean, there are at least 452 visitors!
22:35.56Ivanovicthat is: live streams for all rooms? wtf?
22:36.01unitraxxthat they didn't know what to do with it
22:36.40Slurpeeunitraxx, I was a gsoc mentor for Drupal, then Drupal was not accepted the following gsoc year. This year I picked up the slack getting us into GCI and now hopefully GSoC.

22:37.09umcculloughoh, drupal was in gci this last year?
22:37.17meflinSlurpee: your idea's page is public right? ;)
22:37.21umcculloughdoes that mean another org dropped out? I thought gci was only 10 orgs
22:37.24*** part/#gsoc bePolite (~sprinf@unaffiliated/sprinf)
22:37.39gevaertsunitraxx: I didn't hear that, but there ars such things as reserves for rainy days
22:37.49gevaertsAnd rainy days are not uncommon at fosdem :)
22:37.56Slurpeemeflin, yes -
22:38.01Ivanovicgevaerts: weather was pretty fine this year
22:38.06Slurpeemeflin, you can't see it?
22:38.11Ivanovica little rain on saturday morning but that was about it
22:38.38meflinnice page and yes I can
22:39.07gevaertsIvanovic: you went *outside*? ;)
22:39.16unitraxxI think Drupal might win the price of longest idea page
22:39.18Ivanovicgevaerts: i had to go out of the hotel to travel to fosdem
22:39.26unitraxxMozilla comes pretty close though
22:39.31gevaertsAh, yes
22:39.33Ivanovicso yeah, there was a period of time where i was outside of the AW building
22:39.43Slurpeemeflin, scared me for a second. Thanks for the feed back :_
22:39.46Ivanovicand i once left the AW building in the middle of the day to get some food
22:39.55meflinIvanovic: and like was outside scrarry?
22:39.58Ivanovicthen in the evening to get to a place where i would find food and drink
22:40.06Ivanovicvery scary
22:40.16unitraxxgsoc was handig out these cards for free beers
22:40.32gevaertsIt had stopped raining by the time we got there on Saturday. Friday night was a bit too heavy to get up early :)
22:40.34unitraxxbut it was only valid for that evening
22:40.39unitraxxand I was gone by then

22:41.01Slurpeeunitraxx, we had almost 50 project ideas submitted, but many were poorly organized.
22:41.34unitraxxIf you talk with everybody at every single stand, you might end up with free food and free beers for the whole weekend
22:41.41*** part/#gsoc tlsa (W9TjXW5Ei4@gateway/shell/pepperfish/x-ddnbfljkfirvoujt)
22:41.47unitraxxRedhat gave away food coupons
22:42.09gevaertswas too busy talking to people he knows to talk much at stands
22:42.10Ivanovicgevaerts: since i was organizing a devroom and one of the wesnoth folks was the first speaker i somehow had to be at fosdem early...
22:42.18unitraxxSlurpee: at STK we just sit together with the few devs and discuss what might be nice ideas
22:42.29gevaertsIvanovic: an easy mistake to make :)
22:43.10Ivanovicgevaerts: i think if i did not make the mistake of organizing the games devroom there would be no games devroom besides the obvious WESDEM event in one of the hacking rooms...
22:43.24unitraxxSo I guess that's the main difference between small and large organizations
22:43.36gevaertsIvanovic: there is that
22:43.50meflinunitraxx: not all that much
22:44.07meflinculture is actually more important then size
22:44.09gevaertsThe network was also more stable than usual this year
22:44.28Ivanovicyes, fosdem worked exceptionally well this year
