17:59 marek astronomy SIG around?
18:00 Telimektar plop :)
18:02 marek anyone else around?
18:02 marek got a message from Sergio that he can't attend
18:04 Telimektar ok
18:04 Telimektar shall we begin ?
18:04 Telimektar (a 2-person meeting :))
18:05 marek ok
18:06 marek changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: Fedora Astronomy SIG | Introduction.
18:06 marek so, who's around?
18:06 * marek Marek Mahut
18:06 *Telimektar Micha"el Ughetto
18:07 marek changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: Fedora Astronomy SIG | Review of
tasks from last meeting.
18:08 marek so, what's our overall progress?
18:08 Telimektar what were they ?
18:08 marek nothing I guess, because we were only two at the meeting :)
18:08 marek Serio sent me this mail:
18:08 marek <paste>
18:08 marek * I have packaged pyfits, a python interface to fits. This package is
18:08 marek required by pyraf
18:08 marek * I have packaged pyraf also, but, as iraf isn't in fedora, it can
18:08 marek included for the moment
18:08 marek * I'm giving eso-midas a second try. I have a package that seems
18:08 marek work but needs some testing.
18:08 marek </paste>
18:08 marek this is the progress report from him
18:08 marek from my side
18:09 marek I was heavily working on gnuradio even with upstream
18:09 marek and it should be quite stable
18:09 marek we need to start working on last packages and think about preparing the
18:10 Telimektar I'm still fighting with xvarstar, exams will start again soon, so
it won't be fast
18:10 marek this will come in next two month +/-
18:10 Telimektar yes
18:10 Telimektar abous thes kickstart file
18:10 marek Telimektar: np, did you resolve the problem that it's not building
18:10 Telimektar Telimektar: still on it
18:10 marek :)
18:10 marek ok
18:10 Telimektar marek*: it was not that easy
18:11 Telimektar for the ks, we maybe should ask for a Group package
18:11 danishka_ | changes nick to hanthana
18:11 marek Telimektar: I know :)
18:11 marek Telimektar: not sure if it will be approved
18:11 marek last time they told us no-no.
18:11 marek but it's a good try
18:11 marek Telimektar: we should create a wiki page with a TODO list
18:12 Telimektar yes, my plan's was a roadmap page with link to all subprojects
18:12 marek ok, let's move for the google question.
18:12 marek changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: Fedora Astronomy SIG | What if the
astronomy SIG has a summer intern ?
18:12 marek do we know something about this?
18:13 marek I don't even know if the application for this are still open
18:13 Telimektar nothing it has juste been a question on the ml
18:13 marek "We'll begin accepting applications from open source mentoring
organizations on Monday, March 3, 2008; we'll stop accepting organization applications
on Wednesday, March 12th."
18:13 Telimektar even if the student is not provided by gsoc, we could perhaps offer
this type of function
18:13 marek ok, so this will go for the next year tasks :)
18:14 marek Telimektar: what do you mean by this typo of function?
18:14 Telimektar we could define some big tasks that could be assigned to a temporary
dev, a student for example
18:15 Telimektar but it will come later in the meeting i guess
18:15 marek Telimektar: but who will pay him?
18:15 Telimektar marek: in the mail there was no question of money
18:16 marek well, the Google Summer of Code is that the student work the summer and
he gets 2000$ from google
18:16 marek Telimektar: if not it's a standard volenteer that do it in the free
18:16 Telimektar ok
18:16 marek the gsoc guys get paid for the summer and work heavily on the projects
18:17 Telimektar we should ask Jeff about his proposition
18:17 marek Telimektar: indeed
18:17 marek but the applications are closed for this summer already, let's try
our luck next time
18:17 Telimektar Fedora 11 so :p
18:17 marek changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: Fedora Astronomy SIG | Forking IRAF
and clean it of the closed source?
18:17 marek ;)
18:17 marek yup
18:17 Telimektar 12*
18:17 marek this is a topic from Sergio
18:18 marek <paste>
18:18 marek And finally, can fedora-astronomy be involved in branching iraf? is it
18:18 marek feasible? Iraf it's used by great part of the astronomical
18:18 marek and would be a I killer application. Could you rise the question in
18:18 marek the meeting?
18:18 marek </paste>
18:18 marek this is a good proposition but will involve a lot of work
18:18 Telimektar a new item for the todo list
18:18 Telimektar it also involves getting in contact with the iraf community
18:19 marek yes
18:19 marek we should discuss it on the mailing list first
18:19 Telimektar yes
18:19 marek changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: Fedora Astronomy SIG | Free
discussion, mind storming
18:19 marek ok, all other business
18:19 Telimektar you've talked about skylive.it
18:20 marek yes, this is an interesting project
18:20 Telimektar and python module that it needs
18:20 marek you can take photos from scopes over the globe
18:20 marek Telimektar: it needs about 10 python modules that are not in fedora
18:20 marek I don't have the list yet, but it should be somewhere on their web
18:20 Telimektar ok, i didn't found soure on their website
18:20 Telimektar source*
18:20 marek or even find it from code
18:22 marek http://download.astronomix.org/skylive/SkyLiveNG-0.1b.tgz
18:22 marek here is it
18:22 Telimektar ok thanks, i'll take aloot on it and make a summary of needs on the
18:22 Telimektar a look *
18:22 marek Telimektar: thank you
18:23 marek next item, is getting the packages in EPEL as well
18:23 Telimektar why not
18:24 marek I would like to distribute the Fedora Astronomy spin on a usb stick
18:24 marek people would be able to order it for small price
18:24 marek like 3 euros with the post
18:25 Telimektar mhm, why not
18:25 marek Telimektar: did you saw the persistance feature?
18:25 Telimektar i'm sure som magazines can be interested in this too
18:25 Telimektar marek: i've read a little about it
18:25 marek Telimektar: it's very nice
18:25 marek that way, you can keep your data from observation on the key itself
18:26 Telimektar how do you want to sell the usb stick?
18:28 marek I thought of a web form, something like free media program
18:28 Telimektar ok
18:29 marek I'll try to save some money and get about 300 free for local
18:29 marek and if we are really good, maybe Red Hat will be willing to pay for it
18:29 spoleeba > [n=one@fedora/Jef] joins #fedora-meeting
18:29 marek heyah spoleeba :)
18:29 Telimektar from your own pocket ?
18:30 marek Telimektar: yes.
18:30 spoleeba too many meetings....too little time
18:30 rsc < [n=robert@fedora/rsc] quits [Remote closed the connection]
18:30 marek spoleeba: ;) welcome
18:30 Telimektar 300 free usb sticks it's a lot for a begin
18:30 Telimektar hi spoleeba
18:31 marek Telimektar: well, these are only for local observatory I'm
18:31 marek and local institutions
18:31 Telimektar I think i can get some money for such a distributing money in my
18:31 Telimektar -money
18:32 marek Telimektar: you think your university would be interested in this?
18:32 Telimektar I think i can get some money for such a distributing, from my
18:32 Telimektar corrected:p
18:32 marek cool
18:33 marek well, we will see later
18:33 Telimektar marek: yeah , i was the president of a physics student association and
i know they can be interested by such things
18:33 Telimektar yes
18:33 marek first let's do a spin that kicks ass :)
18:33 Telimektar marek: +1
18:33 marek Telimektar: cool :)
18:33 rsc > [n=robert(a)linuxnetz.de] joins #fedora-meeting
18:33 marek I'll be taking some days off from my work on work on this spin
18:33 marek because my work consumes all my time
18:34 Telimektar we also must finalize the astronomy-menus
18:34 spoleeba marek, so you are really close to putting a spin together?
18:34 marek Telimektar: yup, I had a showstopper on this
18:34 marek spoleeba: kind of, in next two months we can start doing the initial
18:35 marek Telimektar: but I've found a way how to create this menu
18:35 spoleeba marek, make sure you look at the guidance from the new Spins SIG
18:35 marek spoleeba: yes, I know it
18:35 Telimektar marek: can't we base it one the games-menus rpm ?
18:35 marek Telimektar: no, the games menus are using standard GNOME categories
18:36 Telimektar ok
18:36 marek games have sub-cats in gnome, that's no the case of other menus
18:36 marek spoleeba: we will have first only a beta kickstart file
18:36 marek spoleeba: I want to release it all little bit after Fedora 10
18:37 marek do we have date for Fedora 10 yet?
18:37 Telimektar i don't think so
18:38 marek spoleeba: do we have the final version of the spins process?
18:38 Telimektar do you have a link to this ? i do not know about it
18:39 marek I saw a proposition on wiki somewhere, but was told by the Board
it's still in progress
18:39 marek https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/JefSpaleta/SpinReleaseProcessProposal
18:39 Telimektar thx
18:40 spoleeba marek, of the entire process.. i dont think so
18:41 marek spoleeba: good to have you on the project, you can review it before we
propose it to the board itself
18:41 spoleeba marek, but i think the guidance as to what is/is not allowed is mostly
18:44 marek spoleeba: do you the link to the guidance?
18:45 spoleeba no... let me find it
18:46 spoleeba there's a wiki re-org going on as well...which impact things
18:47 spoleeba http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/Spins/CommunitySpinGuidelines
18:48 marek /!\ Fixing packages or applications on the Spin is not allowed. A fix
18:49 marek this mean fix goes to Fedora (upstream here?)
18:49 marek ?
18:52 spoleeba marek, i think it means... not making changes in the Spins kickstart
18:53 spoleeba that should go in a package...and submitted upstream
18:53 marek spoleeba: ok, understood
18:53 marek anything else we want to discuss?
18:53 spoleeba the idea being...don't screw with things like default config
settings via kickstart script action..even though you can
18:54 Telimektar it's ok for me
18:54 Telimektar what are the tasks assignment for now on ?
18:54 marek spoleeba: we were thinking about a different wallpaper
18:55 spoleeba kickstarts are very flexible...and to keep all or spins consistent..we
have to refrain from doing some things that kickstart can easily do
18:55 marek Telimektar: I think, from now on, we should create a TODO list wiki
page, with the name of the person working on it and final date
18:56 marek spoleeba: yup, I see
18:56 spoleeba marek, get it packaged as a package so anyone else can use it
18:56 spoleeba marek, i think theming differences are allowed..i think games does it
18:56 marek spoleeba: it would be part of the wallpaper package, but we will have
to mess with the default config to set it
18:56 marek spoleeba: ok
18:58 marek spoleeba, Telimektar any other business you would like to raise?
