[08:42:31 CST(-0600)] <jessm> good morning all – have a look at this! http://xkcd.com/844/
[08:46:45 CST(-0600)] <jhung> jessm: the truth hurts, but the line graphics make it easier to swallow.
[08:53:00 CST(-0600)] <jhung> anastasiac, colinclark: Do either of you have time to help modify the Rich Inline Edit demo to test a bug? I'm looking at http://issues.fluidproject.org/browse/FLUID-2468.
[08:55:24 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> jhung, I could have a go - what modification is required??
[08:56:05 CST(-0600)] <jhung> anastasiac: we need to be able to activate Edit mode by clicking on editable text. Currently only the Edit link does this.
[08:57:11 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> jhung, this issue confuses me. I thought that the inability to click the editable text was actually a design decision? in which case this isn't a bug? but I thought it was Justin who told me that, and he's the one who filed it, so I'm confused
[08:58:48 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> jessm, jhung: my favourite xkcd: http://xkcd.com/722/
[08:58:49 CST(-0600)] <jhung> anastasiac: the modification is only to test the bug listed in FLUID-2468.
[08:59:11 CST(-0600)] <jhung> It can't be tested because of the way rich edit is activated in the current demo.
[08:59:25 CST(-0600)] <jhung> Therefore we need to modify it a little just to check if the bug still exists.
[08:59:42 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> is 'click on editable text to activate' a configurable option?
[09:01:07 CST(-0600)] <jhung> anastasiac: I think it is.
[09:01:21 CST(-0600)] <jhung> anastasiac: at least that's how it used to behave.
[09:01:36 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> ok, I'll have a look
[09:01:42 CST(-0600)] <jhung> thanks!
[09:09:00 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> colinclark i'm going to add the fss uportal issues into jira, and maybe expand on them after we chat next week. cool?
[09:18:26 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> jhung: 2468 is unreproducable - I'll resolve the JIRA
[09:19:36 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> jhung_afk: ^
[09:24:31 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> heidi_: yep, cool
[09:25:42 CST(-0600)] <mlam> hey colinclark, did you have time to discuss the 1.3.1 uploader tasks?
[09:27:42 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> yes, i'll be in by standup
[09:27:45 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> we can talk after that
[09:28:23 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> jhung_afk: Regarding your IM question to me about how we should handle bugs that effect old versions of browsers that we no longer support...
[09:28:30 CST(-0600)] <mlam> ok
[09:28:48 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> I think it's really important to have them filed, so that if there are any users who have seen these issues, they know we're aware of them and could, if they so wished, contribute a fix themselves.
[09:29:44 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> But, on the other hand, so we're being clear about our plans, I think we can safely close issues for non-A grade browsers as "won't fix," with a note explaining that the issue applies to an older version of a browser.
[10:04:25 CST(-0600)] <jessm> jameswy: i seem to remember you and jhung working on a higher-fi decapod design than what i'm finding in the wiki – can you shoot me a link to it?
[10:05:11 CST(-0600)] <jessm> jameswy: is jhung in today?
[10:05:37 CST(-0600)] <jameswy> jessm: He's not in the office, no.
[10:06:09 CST(-0600)] <jameswy> jessm: And the latest Decapod designs we have are here: http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Decapod+1.0+Wireframes
[10:06:31 CST(-0600)] <jameswy> Is that what you were looking at too?
[10:08:52 CST(-0600)] <jessm> ah, yes
[10:08:59 CST(-0600)] <jessm> that's what i wanted to find
[10:09:33 CST(-0600)] <jessm> jameswy: they are not linked from this page: http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/Decapod+Wireframes
[10:09:36 CST(-0600)] <jessm> so i didn't find them
[10:10:28 CST(-0600)] <jameswy> jessm: Yeah... The Decapod wiki needs a lot of gardening...
[10:10:33 CST(-0600)] <jameswy> (smile)
[10:12:30 CST(-0600)] <jessm> jameswy: yes true, but in that case it was like pulling a weed, not a full day of gardening (wink)
[10:13:25 CST(-0600)] <jameswy> Haha, that's true.
[10:31:44 CST(-0600)] <Bosmon2> colinclark: I got an odd message from SVN just now
[10:31:59 CST(-0600)] <Bosmon2> merge -reintegrate http://source.fluidproject.org/svn/fluid/infusion/branches/CSPACE-1.3 E:/workspace/fluid-infusion
[10:31:59 CST(-0600)] <Bosmon2> svn: Retrieval of mergeinfo unsupported by 'http://source.fluidproject.org/svn'
[10:31:59 CST(-0600)] <Bosmon2> svn: Retrieval of mergeinfo unsupported by 'http://source.fluidproject.org/svn'
[10:31:59 CST(-0600)] <Bosmon2> Merge completed abnormally.
[10:32:08 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> eek
[10:32:18 CST(-0600)] <Bosmon2> Are we perhaps running some out-of-date kind of server?
[10:32:48 CST(-0600)] <Bosmon2> I will be SO EXCITED when we NEVER SEE SVN AGAIN!
[10:57:41 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Bosmon2: I think our server is older than the clients most of us are running
[10:57:45 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> though this seems a bit strange
[10:57:52 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Anyway, the git migration will start next week
[10:57:55 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> with some evaluation and testing
[10:58:15 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> I'd like the King to be involved in that because he's already familiar with DVCS via Decapod and Mercurial
[11:00:34 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> hey heidi_
[11:00:41 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> hi hi
[11:00:51 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> mlam and I just met to chat about his Uploader plan for 1.3.1
[11:01:11 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> One of the things on his list is to address the many weaknesses of Uploader's markup
[11:01:27 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Wondering if you have time to chat with us on Monday about coming up with a specific plan for that
[11:01:30 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> cool
[11:01:33 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> yeah for sure
[11:01:44 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> I can imagine we might want to think about a small plan, a medium-sized one, and big one
[11:01:57 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Small perhaps consisting of some tweaks, like removing all the table silliness
[11:02:08 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Big including a full switch to using the Infusion Renderer
[11:02:23 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Based on how long we think it'll all take, I can guess we might end up somewhere in the middle
[11:02:33 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> jameswy, you're welcome to join us for that as well
[11:02:37 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> Monday after standup?
[11:02:46 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> yeah that sounds good
[11:03:16 CST(-0600)] <jameswy> I'd be happy to join in.
[11:08:08 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> colinclark was thinking i'd send an email to the list highlighting some of the fss issues, but should i wait till after we meet next week? was thinking it might bring up other ideas the community might have
[11:08:26 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> I'm fine either way
[11:08:35 CST(-0600)] <colinclark> I'm sure we'll come up with lots of stuff next week
[11:10:15 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> k
[12:47:41 CST(-0600)] <heidi_> jhung can you check out an ie6 thang? http://issues.fluidproject.org/browse/FLUID-2831
