[08:55:43 CDT(-0500)] <jessm> anyone seen anastasiac ?

[08:59:05 CDT(-0500)] <Justin_o> jessm: she stepped out for a bit.. she should be back around standup time

[09:01:24 CDT(-0500)] <jessm> Justin_o: thanks

[09:16:36 CDT(-0500)] <jessm> Justin_o: what are we using to accomplish text to speech

[09:16:37 CDT(-0500)] <jessm> ?

[09:17:16 CDT(-0500)] <Justin_o> jessm: that might be more of a yzen1 question. as he did the bulk of the work for the demo sprint

[09:17:27 CDT(-0500)] <jessm> yzen1: ^^

[09:19:19 CDT(-0500)] <yzen> jessm: we deploy a small webserver that runs festival library for text synthesis our app queries the server and gets the wav track with speech back

[09:19:54 CDT(-0500)] <jessm> http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/projects/festival/ this?

[09:20:16 CDT(-0500)] <yzen> exactly

[09:22:23 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> Someday soon that will be replaced by a client-side TTS engine

[09:22:33 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> once Chrome and Firefox add support for it (smile)

[09:23:23 CDT(-0500)] <jessm> are there TTS engines locally on all OSs?

[09:23:27 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> yup

[09:23:36 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> And there's a web platform API for it as well

[09:23:53 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> It's a pair--TTS and speech recognition

[09:25:12 CDT(-0500)] <jessm> we are so cool

[09:26:30 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> fascinatingly, Chrome has only implemented the speech recognition part

[09:26:41 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> but your friend Rich says they're well on the way with the TTS part

[09:26:50 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> I expect mozilla to be a bit slower, but it'll come eventually

[09:27:13 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> if yzen doesn't just end up compiling Festival to JavaScript with Emscripten, that is (smile)

[09:27:25 CDT(-0500)] <yzen> i so want to

[09:27:29 CDT(-0500)] <jessm> "my friend"

[09:28:04 CDT(-0500)] <jessm> what the heck is speech recognition only? why would chrome do that?

[09:29:25 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> I was wondering that myself, jessm

[09:29:37 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> I guess maybe they have some mobile apps that need it or something

[09:29:38 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> ?

[09:33:44 CDT(-0500)] <system64> Hey michelled!

[09:33:57 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> hi system64

[09:36:03 CDT(-0500)] <system64> Been tough to complete proposal between exams. finally managed to do it.

[09:36:25 CDT(-0500)] <system64> https://google-melange.appspot.com/gsoc/proposal/review/google/gsoc2013/akshayaurora/5001

[09:37:17 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: Could you suggest any changes? Only have few hours left.

[10:04:24 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> system64: this looks really good. You might want to consider writing tests while you are writing code. I also think that we should make some time early on to get some feedback from designers in the community about your designs and plans for accessibility.

[10:06:09 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: I plan to do unit tests as I code. So didn't give a separate time period for that.

[10:06:33 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> oh, good - it looked like you had scheduled a week for writing tests (smile)

[10:06:55 CDT(-0500)] <system64> Yes, that was for the infusion component (smile)

[10:07:31 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> why would that be different from when you develop the application?

[10:09:49 CDT(-0500)] <avtar> michelled, Justin_o: is this https://github.com/fluid-project/build.fluidproject.org ready to be used for build.fluidproject.org?

[10:09:50 CDT(-0500)] <system64> I thought the component might be integrated into the infusion repo, in future. So it needed to follow certain rules and standards while writing unit tests.

[10:10:17 CDT(-0500)] <avtar> i wasn't sure if you wanted the current version of that vhost replaced with the contents of this repo or have it set up somewhere else for now

[10:10:25 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> not quite avtar - I need to push what Justin_o did yesterday

[10:11:08 CDT(-0500)] <avtar> ok

[10:17:42 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> system64: cool - thx for explaining.

[10:17:54 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: Do you have any suggestions for the timeline? When could I have feedback on the designs?

[10:19:16 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: Could we work on it during Community Bonding Period?

[10:20:14 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> system64: I think we should be able to

[10:20:35 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: Great! I'll add it to the proposal.

[10:20:41 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> I'm thinking we could just find a time that works well for all of us and have a meeting

[10:21:00 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> I just think that you'll get a lot out of talking through your designs with the community

[10:21:26 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: Yes, that would be great. I mentioned about daily meets in my timeline. Do you think that could be feasible?

[10:21:49 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> yes, if it's simply in the irc room

[10:21:53 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> I think it's a great idea

[10:22:12 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> does the timing work for you though?

[10:23:44 CDT(-0500)] <system64> I tend to work late at night. So that shouldn't be a problem (smile)

[10:25:55 CDT(-0500)] <system64> I mentioned about using Heroku or nodejitsu for deploying our Web App. Should that be fine?

[10:36:51 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: Also, the formatting on Melange site, isn't quite right. Should I link to a pdf?

[11:02:27 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> system64: I don't think the formatting really matter

[11:02:29 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> matters

[11:02:59 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> planning for Heroku or nodejitsu is fine. we might decide to do something else at the time, but I think that's reasonable

[11:48:39 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> avtar: I just pushed Justin_o's changes

[11:48:56 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> we could update build.fluidproject.org now

[11:49:03 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> Justin_o: thanks for the pull request

[11:49:08 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> this will be so much better!

[11:49:26 CDT(-0500)] <Justin_o> michelled: no problem.. thank you

[11:49:46 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> Justin_o: are you waiting on me to look at anything else?

[11:52:41 CDT(-0500)] <Justin_o> michelled: yes.. the FLUID-5002 pull request

[11:52:54 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> I think I put that in already

[11:53:08 CDT(-0500)] <Justin_o> michelled: then that's it, thanks (smile)

[11:59:33 CDT(-0500)] <avtar> michelled, Justin_o: how often should the vm pull from that repo?

[11:59:59 CDT(-0500)] <avtar> it's there btw http://build.fluidproject.org

[12:09:50 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: Thanks! Do I need to mail my proposal also?

[12:11:06 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> system64: I'm not sure but I don't think so

[12:13:17 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: It's written here http://wiki.atutor.ca/display/atutorwiki/Google+Summer+of+Code+2013

[12:13:39 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: Not sure, if its for atutor projects only.

[12:16:47 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> system64: all you need to do is have your proposal in on the Google site

[12:17:32 CDT(-0500)] <system64> michelled: Done! (smile)

[12:19:07 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> (smile)

[12:25:15 CDT(-0500)] <Justin_o> michelled: did you want to look at this vp pull request for me https://github.com/fluid-project/videoPlayer/pull/128

[12:25:19 CDT(-0500)] <Justin_o> it removes the docs directory

[12:25:56 CDT(-0500)] <michelled> thx

[12:56:58 CDT(-0500)] <ramil> Do we also need to email our GSOC proposals? At the bottom of the template is says to email to "info@atutor.ca"

[13:00:16 CDT(-0500)] <system64> ramil: I confirmed with michelled, we don't need to mail.

[13:00:32 CDT(-0500)] <ramil> ok thanks

[13:50:43 CDT(-0500)] <Justin_o> michelled: https://github.com/fluid-project/videoPlayer/pull/129

[14:01:10 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> Hey arashs, how's it going with your security gateway design work?

[14:02:49 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> Hi colinclark

[14:04:17 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> I am researching and finding more visual examples to add under our Competitive analysis section

[14:04:26 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/GPII+User+Privacy+Settings+-+Competitive+Analysis

[14:05:39 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> and while doing that, I am adding to our functional description

[14:05:51 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/GPII+User+Privacy+Settings+-+Functional+Descriptions

[14:06:08 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> if I see something that we have missed

[14:06:09 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> ok

[14:06:25 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> What about the scenarios and use cases you were previously working on?

[14:06:54 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> you can see them here

[14:06:55 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> http://wiki.fluidproject.org/display/fluid/GPII+User+Privacy+Settings+-+Use+Cases

[14:07:59 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> In your mind, arashs, are they done now, then?

[14:09:53 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> I think we can add to them, and ask more questions

[14:10:40 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> I'm not sure that quite answers my question

[14:10:57 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> I guess what I'm asking is, do you think they're good enough to use now, or do you need to add to them and ask more questions?

[14:11:39 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> I want to go over them one more time

[14:13:24 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> ok, cool

[14:13:26 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> when do you think they'll be good enough to use and share?

[14:13:45 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> Just to make sure they are clear and to see if I have not missed anything

[14:15:18 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> me and Jon decided to have them done for Monday, so we could have another meeting and go over them with you guys

[14:15:43 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> but I can focus on them today, and have them finished for today

[14:20:31 CDT(-0500)] <colinclark> It's up to you, as long as you've got a clear deadline

[14:21:26 CDT(-0500)] <arashs> Ok, thanks colinclark
