16:06:04 <zodbot> Current chairs: akasurde blackjack97 dericcrago kaneda-fr
16:06:27 <akasurde> kaneda-fr, did you get chance to review my amended changes in your PR ?
16:06:43 <akasurde> kaneda-fr, if looks good then I will merge it
16:08:47 <akasurde> dericcrago, I am sorry was travelling so could not check your PRs
16:08:55 <akasurde> will do soon in this week
16:09:36 <kaneda-fr> did not have a chance to test it, yet
16:10:47 <akasurde> kaneda-fr, OK np
16:10:50 <dericcrago> no problem akasurde, like I said before, I just want to make sure they're not in a state of waiting on me
16:11:32 <akasurde> dericcrago, OK
16:11:58 <akasurde> #topic open floor
16:12:24 <akasurde> I don't have anything from myside so can take any question or comments
16:12:44 <akasurde> Does anyone has any question / concern / comments ?
16:13:43 <dericcrago> with pycon (and the sprints) coming up, is there anything we want to focus people on (if given the chance)?
16:14:39 <akasurde> Definitely, We need help in debugging / solving issues from community related to VMware modules.
16:14:56 <akasurde> #info https://github.com/ansible/ansible/issues?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=is%3Aopen+label%3Avmware+-label%3Adeprecated+is%3Aissue
16:15:06 <dericcrago> the sprints are May 14–17 so we've still got time
16:15:10 <akasurde> Here is the link for open issues
16:16:38 <akasurde> dericcrago, thanks for taking this initiative
16:16:48 <dericcrago> ok, I'm planning on attending the sprints and working on ansible vmware modules, so if there's any prioritization we want to do between now and then that would be good, or I can just sort that list in inverse chronological order
16:17:46 <akasurde> dericcrago, we need help in vmware_guest stabilization as well as documentation simplification to make it more user friendly
16:18:54 <dericcrago> yeah, documentation feels kind of tricky to me, I struggle with the line between not enough doc and a wall of text that's too much
16:19:15 <dericcrago> especially with a module like vmware_guest that can do a lot
16:22:23 <akasurde> dericcrago, agreed. We are coming up with user scenarios which will example a bit about usages of parameters in modules
16:22:35 <akasurde> #info http://docs.ansible.com/ansible/devel/scenario_guides/guide_vmware.html#introduction
16:22:56 <akasurde> This will be the landing page for example pages / documentation
16:23:14 <akasurde> feel free to update documentation and make it more user friendly
16:24:18 <dericcrago> ok, this is good information, I don't think I've seen the scenario guide before
16:29:14 <akasurde> This will be similar to Azure guide
16:29:18 <akasurde> #info http://docs.ansible.com/ansible/devel/scenario_guides/guide_azure.html#creating-virtual-machines
16:30:05 <akasurde> More of requirements, caveats, limitations, expected output, playbook example with comments
16:32:27 <dericcrago> that azure guide is nice
16:33:33 <akasurde> Yes, we need to make even better than azure
16:33:34 <akasurde> :)
16:36:28 <akasurde> any suggestions on guides ?
16:36:48 <dericcrago> not from me, this is the first time I've really looked at them
16:38:41 <akasurde> OK
16:41:53 <dericcrago> anything else to discuss?
16:47:16 <akasurde> We can close the meeting then if we don't have anything else to discuss
16:50:37 <jtanner> sorry folks, had to get in a quick lunch before afternoon meetings
16:52:23 <akasurde> #chair jtanner
16:52:23 <zodbot> Current chairs: akasurde blackjack97 dericcrago jtanner kaneda-fr
16:52:27 <akasurde> jtanner, hi
16:52:32 <jtanner> afternoon
16:52:43 <akasurde> jtanner, do you have anything to discuss
16:52:56 <akasurde> we have 10 minutes remaining
16:52:56 <jtanner> nope, the guides were all i could think of
16:53:40 <akasurde> jtanner, dericcrago suggested good idea about vmware guest modules related modules in upcoming pycon
16:54:32 <jtanner> dericcrago: are you going to run your own sprint or are you going to try to wedge vmware into the ones the rest of the ansible folks are having?
16:55:18 <dericcrago> I'm currently planning to just sit at the ansible table and work on vmware modules
16:55:25 <jtanner> k
16:55:54 <jtanner> i'm not sure how we get that advertised to a larger audience to bring in more folks (if there are any)
16:55:55 <akasurde> you can pull-in more people to work for you, hehehe
16:56:52 <jtanner> dericcrago: i'm going to be at pycon, but i won't be there for the sprints
16:56:59 <dericcrago> I can mention my intentions to whoever is working the ansible booth
16:57:03 <dericcrago> will you be there jtanner?
16:57:16 <jtanner> not for sprints
16:57:32 <jtanner> and i'm going as a civilian this time, so limited booth duty
16:57:47 <jtanner> some of the usual folks will be there though
16:58:05 <sivel> I'll be on booth duty most of the time
16:58:07 <jtanner> and if you want to have some chats, we can definitely talk
16:59:00 <dericcrago> sounds good
16:59:16 <jtanner> sivel: are you staying for sprints?
17:01:19 <dag> akasurde: +1 for a scenario guide !
17:01:32 <akasurde> #chair dag
17:01:32 <zodbot> Current chairs: akasurde blackjack97 dag dericcrago jtanner kaneda-fr
17:01:53 <akasurde> it was jtanner's idea
17:02:07 <akasurde> I am just helping :)
17:02:21 <jtanner> i like to think we all collectively knew it should be done, but had forgotten
17:02:58 <akasurde> Cool
17:03:27 <akasurde> Thanks everyone, I will close today's meeting we can continue talk on this channel though
