20:30:01 <nirik> EPEL meeting ping abadger1999 rsc stahnma tremble dgilmore smooge
20:30:01 <zodbot> The meeting name has been set to 'epel'
20:30:27 <stahnma> oh hai
20:30:49 <smooge> here
20:30:52 <smooge> in other meeting
20:30:53 <nirik> who all is around? and who has agenda items?
20:31:01 <smooge> but here
20:31:04 * nirik can touch on his lack of progress on wiki repaving.
20:31:08 <smooge> agenda. pillage then burn wiki
20:31:14 <ianweller> i'm okay with that
20:31:29 <abadger1999> /me still in board meeting... attempting to multitask
20:32:09 * rsc 's here as well
20:32:31 <nirik> if there is anyone else would like a ping, let me know and I will
add it to the list. ;)
20:33:18 <stahnma> I have no real new items.
20:33:25 <smooge> git looks approved
20:33:25 <stahnma> Only ideas and a lack of time to implement them
20:33:40 <stahnma> git in el5? Very pleased about that
20:33:47 <smooge> ok 1) how does one delete/kill pages in wiki?
20:34:01 <nirik> smooge: you get ianweller to "archive" them.
20:34:09 <ianweller> hi there.
20:34:11 <stahnma> you basically clear them and sometimes offer redirects
20:34:26 <ianweller> i'll hand you a list of pages with 'epel' in the
20:34:35 <smooge> ok lets go over our pages then
20:34:37 <ianweller> and you can tell me which ones to archive, and i'll hack up
a crappy script
20:34:42 <smooge> ok good
20:34:54 <smooge> we will do that. I think 99.9997 of them can be archived
20:34:56 <nirik> ok, do we have any more topics before we go on to each one?
20:35:02 * nirik nods. most can be archived.
20:35:30 <nirik> #topic Wiki repaving
20:36:19 <stahnma> It would be very nice to get this done quickly, which I realize
is an empty statement if I'm not helping yet
20:36:41 <stahnma> but with the press release of EPEL recently, it would nice to
have good landing pages and information
20:36:52 <smooge> Well the servers have decided that when I am working on EPEL its
time to crash
20:37:19 <nirik> yeah.
20:37:30 <nirik> so, lets archive, see whats left, then follow my plan on new
20:37:38 <nirik> I can try and work on it this week
20:38:43 <nirik> anything else on wiki?
20:40:08 <nirik> #topic new git to el5
20:40:18 <nirik> finally looking like we will get new git in epel5.
20:40:23 <nirik> so, hurray, and test it lots.
20:41:23 <nirik> #topic Open Floor
20:41:28 <nirik> Anything open floor wise.
20:42:48 * abadger1999 notes that we mere mortals *can* archive pages without
ianweller's help jsut by moving to Archive:Page name
20:42:58 <nirik> oh yeah? good to know.
20:43:04 <abadger1999> and we don't have so many pages that we absolutely need a
script to do that.
20:43:20 <abadger1999> We'd only need ianweller if we want to delete the page
20:43:36 <nirik> well, there's a lot of *EPEL* pages.
20:43:38 <ianweller> that is correct
20:43:44 <ianweller> but there's a lot of pages :)
20:44:05 <abadger1999> Oh -- meeting pages...
20:44:20 <nirik> yeah, old meetings.
20:44:54 <nirik> which would be great to archive, not delete.
20:45:05 <abadger1999> Or move them to the Meeting: namespace
20:45:20 <ianweller> either way
20:45:24 <nirik> yeah, that might be ok too.
20:45:45 <ianweller> up to you guys, if you do want to move meetings, put those in a
20:45:52 <ianweller> (after i give you the list of pages)
20:46:26 <nirik> ok.
20:46:57 <smooge> oh I need to push a new mediawiki
20:47:02 <nirik> ok, anything else for the meeting?
20:47:37 <smooge> yes
20:47:40 <smooge> now that I can focus
20:48:17 <smooge> I would like to get a FAD/phone-call/meeting where we just sit
down and do the wiki repaving together.
20:48:55 <smooge> to do that we need a plan of what we are trying to accomplish, who
we are trying to serve, and where we wish to go.
20:49:11 <nirik> https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Kevin/EPEL_Wiki_Redesign
20:49:14 <nirik> is my plan for the wiki
20:50:26 <nirik> perhaps we could just reuse our meeting next week to all work on
20:51:27 <dgilmore> sorry i was at physio and lunch
20:52:01 <nirik> no worries.
20:55:46 * nirik will close out the meeting in a minute if nothing else comes up
20:55:55 <smooge> ok good to close
