19:01:53 * wsterling here
19:02:04 <nirik> Any new folks care to give a introduction? any apprentices care to
talk about tickets or general feedback?
19:02:17 <icole> hi everyone, i just joined the apprentice group on Sunday
19:02:24 <pingou> congrats :)
19:02:34 <nirik> welcome icole.
19:02:43 <p3ll0n_> New apprentice here as well.
19:02:48 <securegates> new here as well :)
19:02:50 * thesharp is late a bit. hello everyone.
19:02:57 <icole> so I have poked around a little bit in the group, tickets etc but
haven't had much of a chance to dig in to anything yet
19:03:00 <nirik> icole: you were interested in programming tasks?
19:03:11 <nirik> welcome everyone. ;)
19:03:14 <icole> i was told abadger1999 might be able to point me in the direction
on some coding tickets i could look at
19:03:20 <icole> nirik, yup
19:03:27 <abadger1999> icole: I sure can.
19:03:37 <abadger1999> icole: are you familiar with python?
19:03:40 <p3ll0n_> I was looking at tackling (#2762) - adding logic to fasClient to
write keys only necessary as a good starter ticket
19:03:49 <nirik> securegates: were you more interested in the coding side of things?
or sysadmin ?
19:04:01 <abadger1999> p3ll0n_: I can help get you started on that as well.
19:04:02 <securegates> i prefer sysadmin work
19:04:12 <icole> abadger1999, i have used it a bit, but i have mostly used java and
19:04:13 <nirik> p3ll0n_: excellent.
19:04:16 <securegates> but i can work with php python etc..
19:04:18 <abadger1999> <nod>
19:04:34 <p3ll0n_> abadger1999: Thanks, I would appreciate that.
19:04:44 <icole> abadger1999, interested in getting more python chops though
19:04:54 <nirik> securegates: see me after the meeting over in #fedora-admin and I
can see about getting you in the apprentice group to look around.
19:05:10 <abadger1999> icole: Sounds good.
19:05:10 <nirik> thesharp: welcome. ;) it's late your time I think...
19:05:17 <securegates> ok! thanks!
19:05:29 <thesharp> nirik: not so. and i just had a lovely dinner. :)
19:05:40 <abadger1999> icole, p3ll0n_: If you want to talk to me in #fedora-admin
after the meeting we'll see about getting you everything you need to get started.
19:06:02 <icole> abadger1999, sounds awesome thanks

19:07:32 <nirik> Just a quick note on ibiblio01.

generate a list before hand.
19:10:48 <dgilmore> nirik: so i have a little extra flexibility
19:10:56 <pingou> nirik: +1
19:11:20 <nirik> abadger1999: could you generate a list of inactive matainers and

19:13:40 <nirik> dgilmore: ok. Can whip one up with the items I know of.
19:14:19 <nirik> any other upcoming tasks folks would like to talk about or
19:14:30 <nirik> Oh, I am going to look at re-installing bodhost01 later today.
19:14:39 <nirik> and then telia01 tomorrow or monday.
19:15:19 <smooge> I am going to reinstall xen03 as a temp box
19:15:43 <nirik> ok.
19:16:02 <nirik> that leaves the list of rhel5 boxes diminishing. ;)
19:16:31 <nirik> next block of them after this would be bxen04 and it's guests
in rel-eng land.
19:17:11 <smooge> xen04 is the interesting one
19:17:26 <nirik> and yeah, xen04 is left on the non rel-eng side.
19:17:34 <nirik> I think we will look at that after fudcon.
19:17:40 <smooge> it has bapp01 and app01 which are fun
19:17:53 <nirik> yeah...
19:18:11 <nirik> ok, moving along...
19:18:14 <nirik> #topic Meeting next week?
19:18:24 <nirik> I'm going to be traveling to fudcon next thursday...
19:18:27 <skvidal> next week I will likely be travelling
19:18:28 <skvidal> yah
19:18:40 <nirik> if someone else wants to run a meeting they could... or we could
19:18:41 <skvidal> I suspect a lot of folks in here will
19:19:05 <albutler_> see ya when you come back
19:19:10 <smooge> I will be travelling on thursday
19:19:42 * abadger1999 will hopefully have arrived but may not have internet then.
19:20:27 <nirik> ok, so lets just cancel?
19:20:36 <abadger1999> yeah
19:20:50 <pingou> there s always -admin for questions
19:20:55 * nirik nods.
19:21:10 <nirik> #agreed no meeting next week.
19:21:18 <nirik> #topic Fudcon plans
19:21:35 <nirik> so, shall we discuss fudcon plans?
19:21:45 <nirik> I signed up to do 3 workshops.
19:22:01 <pingou> \ó/
19:22:16 <nirik> well, 2 hackfests and 1 workshop... if it makes a difference.
19:22:19 <nirik> Fedora Infrastructure: Revamping our staging server setup, then
19:22:28 <nirik> Fedora Infrastructure: 2 factor authentication brainstorming
19:22:34 <nirik> Fedora Infrastructure: Getting started/apprentices/Getting
19:23:07 <nirik> abadger1999 had 3 as well.
19:23:11 <pingou> nirik: are there plan to share this on irc at the same time ?
19:23:11 <abadger1999> Yeah.
19:23:18 <nirik> Any other ones we really want to work on?
19:23:26 <nirik> pingou: hopefully yeah.
19:23:37 <nirik> it's sometimes difficult to transcribe in real time tho
19:23:38 <pingou> nirik: cool :)
19:23:50 <abadger1999> I may cancel the python one -- I need to keep an EasyFix
around long enough to have a coding problem to work on ;-)
19:24:10 <nirik> another thing I thought I would mention...
19:24:23 <nirik> last years fudcon, we made:
19:24:34 <pingou> abadger1999: oh I break something if you need :)
19:24:35 <nirik> some of which we did do, some of which we didn't get to.
19:24:40 <abadger1999> :-)
19:24:50 <skvidal> nirik: indeed
19:24:56 <nirik> I'd like to make a similar page for 2012... perhaps make it
19:24:56 <pingou> "Write automated tests using TG2's test framework"!
19:25:17 <nirik> and we can work on that in a hallway track. ;)
19:25:49 <pingou> nirik: what might be nice it to 'check' those which have
19:26:05 <nirik> pingou: done ones should be on the bottom section...
19:26:23 <pingou> ah, there was quite some ambitions :)
19:26:25 <skvidal> pingou: see 'Done items'
19:26:37 <skvidal> some of the stuff was deemed 'not really workable'
19:26:39 <skvidal> but never removed
19:26:48 <skvidal> the items related to glusterfs, for example
19:27:16 <nirik> yeah.
19:27:19 <skvidal> all the cloud stuff has met payment issues
19:27:26 <abadger1999> :-(
19:27:50 <nirik> so, any other fudcon planning we should do?
19:28:34 <nirik> I think we should be conservative on any changes we make next wed
and thursday... since so many of us will be traveling. ;)
19:28:37 <skvidal> nirik: do you want to breing a bunch of yubikeys?
19:28:59 <nirik> yeah, I was planning on bringing a pile, and at least give a spare
to all the mainers...
19:29:13 <nirik> and possibly if we can work out 2fa with them give them to other
19:29:22 <nirik> I think I have around 30ish.
19:29:55 <pingou> that's a good number
19:30:24 <nirik> and hopefully we will pick up some more this year, so we could
possibly cover sysadmin folks that have sudo or something. we will see.
19:31:09 <nirik> in any case I will bring them and we can decide how to distribute.
19:31:21 <nirik> anything else on fudcon? or shall we move on?
19:31:47 <nirik> #topic Open Floor
19:31:57 <nirik> anyone have items for open floor? questions? ideas?
19:33:19 * nirik listens to crickets chirp
19:33:19 <skvidal> nothing leaps to my mind
19:33:40 <nirik> ok, thanks for coming everyone. See (some) of you folks next week.
19:33:43 <nirik> #endmeeting
