Logistics, Participants, IRC log


  • Review Previous Action Items
  • Moving twiki.org to TWiki 4
  • Re-organizing twiki.org towards a user-centric website

1. Review Previous Action Items

  • develop.twiki.org server move
    • Post-commit script (Sven)
    • Email when committing (Sven)
      • outgoing mail needs to work
      • twiki-dev subscriptions need to be fixed
    • Add linked fastserver.net logo to develop.twiki.org home and bugs webhome (Sven)

  • TWiki 4.0.2 follow up
    • Upload patch to the download page (Will)
    • Remove hotfix from download page and have it visible on known issues page. (Peter)
      • Visible on known issues page DONE. Link to patch NOT added to blue download square DONE. Further hiding the fix? Kenneths suggests to leave it as is. Not too visible and not hidden = compromise. Note that users have reported the problem on Bugs:Item2094 and even spent time trying to solve it.

  • TWiki 4.0.3 release
    • UpgradeTWiki script (need actionee - none found)
      • Test it
      • Fix it
      • Document it
      • Procedure for testing it in the release cycle incl test cases
    • Add the 6-8 urgent/requirement bugs (Action - all)

  • CSS-related issues
    • The notorious Firefox (not) loading of CSS: No known solution for the moment.

2. Moving twiki.org to TWiki 4

  • Desired outcome: To do lists / actionable items / timeframe

3. Re-organizing twiki.org towards a user-centric website

  • Desired outcome: Compile list of low hanging fruit items

New Action Items

  • develop.twiki.org server move
    • Fix the SVN mailer so the from address is correct (Sven)
    • Password sync with (who and how?). Current manual process makes it difficult for new users not yet registered on TWiki.org or newly registered to report bugs. (First ask Sven for proposal).
    • Document server setup for admins (Peter have asked Sven)
    • Add peter to admin (Peter have asked Sven)

  • TWiki 4.0.2 follow up

      • Consensus that it is important for upgraders.
      • Noone coders came forward to volunteer the task.
    • Release date not set. Wishes were from ASAP which is a week from now to on month from now. So maybe a May 9th release date can be a tentative date to think about.
