Agenda
======

* Luke: Move forward on x86 tinderbox: http://document-foundation-mail-archive.969070.n3.nabble.com/minutes-of-ESC-call-td4262438.html
+ interested to revive x86 tinderbox
+ Cloph: machine is ready, waiting to be used, can set up access early next
week, or even during the week-end
+ cloph@documentfoundation.org not @libreoffice.org (please also CC
hostmaster@documentfoundation.org)
+ didn't realize the keys were pasted via IRC, was waiting for a mail :-P
+ alternatively: create a ticket to Redmine

* Brett: has spare computing capacity, can offer to host more TBs
+ intel 6700k CPU (i7) lying around, also samsung 850 EVO (might use that one for
something else though)
- MB has some issues (for GPU) but the machine is fully functional, 16GiB DDR4
+ cloph: could be used as replacement for hetzner/EC2 cloud depending on how
fast the machine is
+ less urgent than having the 32-bits tb back though
+ cloph: for linux bots one needs centos7, create "tdf" user, clone LODE ->
will come back with precise instructions
+ guilhem: come back to Brett with the VPN creds

* Brett: has (yet!) another box available, dell poweredge R210 II (1x Xeon
E3-1270v2 3.50GHz Processor, 4GB RAM, 1TB WD Blue 7200 RPM).
+ Older/slower machine; could use as 32-bits TB

* [rdm#1481] move bibisect repos off gerrit (to dev-downloads?)
+ deprecate old git:// URLs, uses https://bibisect.libreoffice.org
+ cloph: they don't need to be hosted as .git repos for the *inactive* repos,
tarballs/bundles would be fine as well
- for inactive repos like https://bibisect.libreoffice.org/linux-64-6.1.git
redirect to tarball instead of suggesting the git-clone command
- use `git bundle create` once the repo is inactive

* wget: move website repos from GitHub to gerrit
+ Ability to contribute and integrate patches more easily
+ cloph: can stay on github as it makes sense to allow pull-requests/patches for that
+ wget: users are confused about the double standard workflow gerrit vs github
+ cloph: we could have both (using gerrit's github plugin)
- also for core/online/etc
- [this is blocking on the upgrade to 2.16]
+ AI cloph: import website repo to gerrit and use it as authoritative source,
with github as mirror

* wget: Disable issue tracker and ability to contribute on Git repos hosted on GitHub
+ cloph: couldn't find a way to disable pull-requests & issue tracker
+ AI wget: providing a rdm ticket about instructions for the pr/issues tracker
removal from github

* wget: Consistency between /tdf and /libreoffice on GitHub + validate domains
+ AI wget: provide rdm ticket with instructions

* wget: get whole copy of blog instance VM for dev purpose
+ Because of GDPR issues, data leaks to third parties
- g. nothing beyond 3rd party services listed at privacy policy
https://libreoffice.org/privacy
+ Nuke WordPress auth tokens first?
- g. Way too overkill, can't afford to go through the entire db and upload
tree to prune private stuff
- wget: ok to export config tables + extensions config files to reproduce
the config locally (dev instance)
. guilhem: fill a redmine ticket + discussion on the website mailing list
+ guilhem: should be doable to have a test instance like we do with silverstripe
+ KVM or LXC based?
- KVM

* Weblate
+ AI guilhem: consolidate saltstack (hosts.vm137 vs hosts.weblate)
+ cloph: everything migrated off pootle except the website translations
+ should reclaim translations.tdf name at some point, but no need to rush
(can wait until FOSDEM)

* Update check
+ two HTTP requests (GET + OPTIONS/PROPFIND) per check
- cloph: will look into that
+ AI cloph: need to add the map to the repo
- Lua source location?
. make it clear that the .php script has been subsumed

* Download metrics: https://downloadcounter.libreoffice.org/
+ more accurate metrics (and slightly lower) now available in Matomo
+ once we deprecate downloadcounter we'll need to find another way to publish
that data to the world, for instance with static images/exports

* wget: Easily accesss very old discussions for third party FOSS projects
(Mattermost Inc's request)
+ full text search?
- could use xapian with a drop-down menu to select list archives to search
from, but that doesn't offer much more than searches using a search engine
+ g: "site:https://listarchives.documentfoundation.org/www/board-discuss/ foobar"
in your favorite search engine should work
- wget: not really usable in practise because search results may be
truncated depending on the mailing list and search engine used :(

* wget: Mastodon Update cf. rdm#3033?
+ none. ticket will be updated when time allows

* Gerrit SSO + upgrade: https://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/projects/msg02641.html
+ ~90% of active accounts (in the past 30 days) have a linked SSO account
+ everyone has been warned: banner + 2x announce + 2x individual mails
+ 3rd individual mail this week-end, then *lock out*

* PiTR
+ Brett has been travelling through the land of 7/11 and Wal-mart and sadly
hasn't had any time to work on anything useful for the world. Holiday
shenanigans will conclude next week.
+ guilhem: didn't find time to work on the prometheus exporters either

* Next call: Tue Jan 21 17:30:00 UTC 2020
