16:38:06 <siddharthvipul> sidstond, sure :)
16:38:14 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Thanks!
16:38:35 <nasirhm> #topic Announcements
16:39:02 <siddharthvipul> nasirhm: x3mboy[m] is the announcement related to overall project or just the topic (or sig)
16:39:36 <nasirhm> I think some news from the Fedora ecosystem.
16:40:03 <nasirhm> #info Orphaned packages seeking maintainers
16:40:10 <nasirhm> #link https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/devel-announce@lists.fedoraproject.org/thread/SGFOY5UC726CTVHQMSZU64TWKMUJOQRS/
16:40:37 <nasirhm> Do we have anyother announcements from others ?
16:41:03 <siddharthvipul> #info bodhi 5.0 in production.. show your love to cverna, scoady and others
16:41:43 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Bodhi, the DE/WM?
16:42:01 <nasirhm> Bodhi the Fedora Build System
16:42:13 <nasirhm> s/Build/Updates/
16:42:13 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> AH
16:42:22 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Cookies all round!
16:42:34 <siddharthvipul> hehe, I am surprised you don't know bodhi ^.^ https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/
16:42:51 <siddharthvipul> but I guess the DE is more famous outside fedora
16:43:07 <siddharthvipul> #info Kernel test day, participate :)
16:43:07 <nasirhm> I think let's move onto Progress updations now ?
16:43:11 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Thanks, other sid :p
16:43:11 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> I'm only just upgrading from user
16:43:35 <siddharthvipul> nasirhm: yep, let's proceed
16:43:42 <nasirhm> Yeah the Kernel Test Week is a good one, Looking forward to see people there :)
16:43:44 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> I think so, Sid, they did release a new version not 2 months back
16:43:49 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Nasirhm, yes.
16:44:06 <nasirhm> #topic Progress updations
16:44:52 * nasirhm was working on the ks files of LXDE and XFCE remove stuff and trying to get the Lightdm right
16:45:08 <siddharthvipul> do we have a packages needed vs not yet packaged? I could start looking at packaging a few over weekends.. now that DC move is settling down and CI cluster is deployed, I have a little bandwidth
16:45:17 <siddharthvipul> nasirhm: how is that going?
16:45:55 <nasirhm> siddharthvipul: It's going good, I've never created and deleted these many VMs in my whole life :P
16:46:37 <siddharthvipul> haha, I can relate a little bit
16:46:38 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Re:packages, Sid, I've made some suggestions for the extended spin that are in copr, I'll take about those when the floor is open, and we can elaborate  sometime later?
16:46:57 <nasirhm> I was thinking of another way to do it by creating a i3 liveuser in which we can set in config to execute `liveinst` on Workspace one, so the user has the ability to install i3 from a i3 live.
16:47:05 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Nice, Nasirhm! Your rise within fedora ranks has been meteoric!
16:47:37 <nasirhm> Thank you @buredoRUNofthecyborg :)
16:47:44 <siddharthvipul> sidstond, if they are already in copr, and if they don't have license issue, you could package them with ease.. let's discuss that in openfloow
16:48:11 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Done, Sid!
16:48:13 <nasirhm> So, let's move on to open floor now ?
16:48:34 <siddharthvipul> yeah, sure! I don't see a lot of people around
16:49:00 <nasirhm> hehehe, we have 3/4 of us here, i see Defolos too.
16:49:20 <siddharthvipul> bouncers != available/free :p
16:49:25 <nasirhm> #topic Open floor
16:49:34 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Thanks, Nasirhm
16:49:57 <nasirhm> siddharthvipul: I see him on the matrix side, if he has seen it or not. :D
16:50:12 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> I'd posted some suggestions, which I was told are more suited for i3 - extended. Shall we discuss those now?
16:50:12 <nasirhm> So Guys, what do we have for open floor today ?
16:50:22 <nasirhm> Sure.
16:50:24 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> App suggestions*

16:50:34 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Torrent client: Fragments? Transmission? rtorrent ?
16:50:34 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Image viewer : Feh? EOM (fewer dependencies?)
16:50:35 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> File Manager: Caja (fewer deps) MC?
16:50:35 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> ffmpegthumbnailer
16:50:36 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> aria2?
16:50:36 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> ghostwriter (Markdown, not essential)
16:50:37 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> System Monitor: Deepin System Monitor (looks good) htop | ytop or ctop? (https://fedoramagazine.org/4-cool-new-projects-to-try-in-copr-for-april-2020/)
16:50:37 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> i3lock-fancy

16:50:38 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> xbacklight?
16:50:39 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Prt Scr: flameshot
16:50:39 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> E-mail client: ?
16:50:40 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> e-reader : Foliate/ Bookworm? (Not essential)

16:50:42 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Tilix?
16:51:28 <nasirhm> Hmm, This is indeed a big list, is anyof it except the i3lock-fancy is not packages yet.
16:51:42 <siddharthvipul> okay, starting from top.. I have 0 comments on by default music player and video player.. on clipboard.. xclipboard?
16:52:06 <nasirhm> I'm adding it to the wiki page.
16:52:08 <siddharthvipul> and again, I don't think we need to ship torrent clients by default
16:52:13 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Most of them are, Nasirhm. These are from my personal install
16:52:23 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Thanks for adding, Nasirhm
16:52:40 <nasirhm> siddharthvipul++ on the torrent clients.
16:52:59 <nasirhm> xbrightlight  is a must and better suited for i3-minimal
16:53:00 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Sid, some suggestions are so users can have sth like ncmpcpp up and running, since the mp3 codecs are now FOSS (just an example)
16:53:20 <siddharthvipul> I see
16:53:42 <siddharthvipul> I like feh (use it)
16:53:52 <siddharthvipul> file manager: ranger please :)
16:53:53 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Re : torrent, the workstation install has it, so makes sense on extended too , I thought
16:54:02 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Cool beans
16:54:21 <nasirhm> #action adding xbrightlight to i3-minimal
16:54:34 <siddharthvipul> nasirhm: yeah, that's a good thing to add
16:54:45 <siddharthvipul> now, when are we going to discuss slack XD
16:55:05 <siddharthvipul> jk jk
16:55:25 <nasirhm> So let's do this one by one from the long list
16:55:28 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> urxvt as the terminal emulator? What's the plan, Nasirhm?
16:55:30 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Yeap
16:55:46 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> If you guys have time, we could do pros and cons too
16:56:12 <siddharthvipul> yeah, urxvt is what we landed on iirc
16:56:24 <nasirhm> urxvt is decided for i3-minimal because of it being the default in i3
16:56:42 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Nice
16:56:52 <siddharthvipul> nasirhm: is the things we agreed upon being noted somewhere? probably a different section in ideas or a new doc with confirmed list?
16:57:08 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> But shall we go from the top? It'll help me get acquainted on your ideas and philosophy too
16:57:22 <nasirhm> siddharthvipul: Would work on the selected ones and add it to another doc after this meeting.
16:57:31 <siddharthvipul> great
16:59:21 <nasirhm> So, let's start with music player for extended ?
16:59:35 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Music players: Quod Libet (quite minimal; standalone packages) GUI
16:59:35 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> ncmpcpp with mpd?
16:59:40 <nasirhm> minimal like Quod Libet, maybe? ncmpcpp with mpd ?
17:00:07 * nasirhm has no experience with these, what do others think ?
17:00:14 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> ncmpcpp fits the aesthetic of an i3 spin. I'd even include it in the minimal
17:00:23 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> What are we using for minimal atm?
17:00:39 <nasirhm> Nothing.
17:00:59 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Nothing, as in undecided, or no music player)
17:01:07 <siddharthvipul> I don't listen to music at all on my system (just realized)
17:01:17 <siddharthvipul> well, I have vlc if that counts
17:01:47 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> I've moved to online services too, but most other spins think that music players fulfill a need?
17:02:05 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> We can always include vlc for video playing
17:02:47 <nasirhm> I don't think VLC is available on the main repo
17:02:55 <siddharthvipul> oh no, vlc has some proprietary codecs
17:03:07 <nasirhm> yep :)
17:03:09 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Oh :(
17:03:10 <siddharthvipul> nasirhm: it's not
17:03:48 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> I think we can shelve music players till we all have a chance to try some from dnf search ?
17:03:59 <siddharthvipul> .whoowns mpd
17:04:00 <zodbot> siddharthvipul: Package mpd not found.
17:04:09 <siddharthvipul> .whoowns quod
17:04:09 <zodbot> siddharthvipul: Package quod not found.
17:04:19 <siddharthvipul> hehe, doesn't look so bright :P
17:04:41 <nasirhm> #action addition of Quod Libet & ncmpcpp with mpd on i3-extended brainstorm page.
17:04:47 <nasirhm> siddharthvipul: Something that you can package, If you're free.
17:05:29 <siddharthvipul> nasirhm: nah, I don't use it.. packaging is easy, maintaining is hard. I will wait on someone who actually uses it (if no one else takes it then for the SIG I can)
17:06:04 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Please also add moc, Noise, Parole, Kaffeine and cmus too Nasirhm
17:06:10 <nasirhm> siddharthvipul: Sounds like a good idea, I'm working to package Nix as I'm love with it
17:06:25 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Cool, I used to live Nix..
17:06:35 <siddharthvipul> you were packaging that other editor, right?
17:06:44 <siddharthvipul> how is that going nasirhm? (just curious)
17:07:03 <nasirhm> siddharthvipul: Micro is already packaged in fedora :)
17:07:07 <nasirhm> s/in/for/
17:07:40 <nasirhm> It's going good especially with the help and mentorship from Defolos It's quite good.
17:07:55 <siddharthvipul> I don't think it was micro that you mentioned.. well nevermind
17:08:05 <siddharthvipul> oh awesome
17:08:06 <nasirhm> I only maintain rover on COPR, as that's what i use :)
17:08:08 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> @Defolos 🍪
17:08:09 <siddharthvipul> glad to hear
17:08:21 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> And great to hear, Nasir!
17:08:30 <nasirhm> So, let's move to video players now ?
17:08:32 <nasirhm> Thanks :)
17:08:48 <defolos[m]1> <fedi3bridgerbot "<buredoRUNofthecyborg> @Defolos "> wasntme?
17:08:50 <siddharthvipul> same thing for video player..
17:08:52 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Please add the other music players too, Nasir
17:08:59 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> To the master list
17:09:22 <nasirhm> mvp ?
17:09:27 <nasirhm> .whoowns mvp
17:09:28 <zodbot> nasirhm: Package mvp not found.
17:09:32 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Mpv
17:09:47 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> But it's only on rpmfusion iirc
17:10:07 <nasirhm> <fedi3bridgerbot "<buredoRUNofthecyborg> To the ma"> It's a brainstorming page, for now we can add anything if it's FOSS
17:10:25 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Noted!
17:14:58 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Shall we go on to torrent clients? Yay or nay on adding them on the extended spin?
17:16:52 <siddharthvipul> nay
17:17:23 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Aye here
17:17:23 <siddharthvipul> IMO*
17:18:41 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Ofc, implied
17:18:59 <siddharthvipul> we are not trying to keep it like workstation.. we want a minimal version.. and torrent clients are just extras that gnome has as well, extra features.. but since transmission (and I guess also qbittorrent) are already packages in fedora, won't be difficult (if others agree)
17:20:12 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Even on extended?
17:20:26 <siddharthvipul> what do you mean by extended?
17:20:49 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Maybe I'm not on the same page re: the philosophy of the i3-extended spin?
17:21:06 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Nasirhm, please field Sid's question?
17:21:16 <siddharthvipul> :shrugs:
17:21:26 <x3mboy[m]> So, no torrents by default?
17:21:57 <siddharthvipul> x3mboy[m]: that's what I think.. if you all agree, why not ;)
17:22:17 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Even on the extended ISO, x3mboy?
17:22:20 <x3mboy[m]> Well, I don't use torrent that much too care
17:22:26 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Just clarifying...
17:24:40 <nasirhm> mcp is not foss, so ?
17:24:41 <nasirhm> How about dragon player or something like that ?
17:24:48 * nasirhm is back
17:24:58 <nasirhm> There was a problem on my end with Power
17:25:19 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> mcp?
17:25:36 <nasirhm> s/mcp/mvp
17:25:56 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> mpv? It's in rpmfusion, so not FOSS, yeah
17:26:06 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> No worries, Nasirhm
17:26:11 <nasirhm> On torrents, It would be good to have a minimal one, if there's any
17:26:19 <siddharthvipul> well, just because it's not in rpmfusion doesn't mean it's not FOSS
17:26:31 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Dragon Player is kinda big, and needs codecs anyhow
17:27:00 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Re : torrent, maybe rtorrent? Or Fragments (it's in the repos)?
17:27:13 <nasirhm> .whoowns torrent
17:27:14 <zodbot> nasirhm: Package torrent not found.
17:27:27 <nasirhm> .whoowns rtorrent
17:27:28 <zodbot> nasirhm: owner: konradm; admin: dfateyev, verdurin
17:27:30 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> rtorrent
17:27:50 <x3mboy[m]> Even in extended. There are too many clients and in our case people can opt to the client they want
17:27:59 <nasirhm> We're in luck for rtorrent + I have zero to no experience with minimal torrent apps.
17:28:25 <nasirhm> <x3mboy[m] "Even in extended. There are too "> they can do that by `dnf install <package>` :)
17:28:40 <x3mboy[m]> Exactly
17:28:42 <x3mboy[m]> And they will do it
17:28:52 * nasirhm just realized it would be an hour in 2 mins :D
17:29:29 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Forgive me for asking, then what is the point of the extended release? I'd like to understand your philosophy better here
17:29:41 <nasirhm> x3mboy: mail clients and torrents is something, that a i3 user would know how to install (making an assumption about enduser)
17:29:54 <x3mboy[m]> Agree
17:30:12 <x3mboy[m]> And tbh is not a need
17:30:17 <x3mboy[m]> It's a want
17:30:22 <x3mboy[m]> * It's a desire
17:30:34 * siddharthvipul nods
17:31:12 <nasirhm> for i3-extended it's more of all those packages installed, but that's not the focus for us now but to work on the minimal spin.
17:31:16 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> I have to go, I'll be back in a second. Have to feed my pup
17:31:26 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> Please don't stop discussing on my account
17:31:54 <nasirhm> P.S; we're running out of time :)
17:32:17 <x3mboy[m]> I'm not even here
17:32:34 * x3mboy[m] dissapear in a fog curtain
17:32:34 <siddharthvipul> let's wrap it.. i am tired as well
17:32:55 <nasirhm> How about i add these packages on the brainstorm page and add a tag to be discussed, or adding it on a ML or Pagure ticker for ease of input from everyone ?
17:33:00 <nasirhm> What do you guys think ?
17:33:30 <nasirhm> s/ticker/ticket/
17:33:34 <fedi3bridgerbot> <b​uredoRUNofthecyborg> That works, Nasir
17:34:19 <nasirhm> #action create a mailing list thread for the packages that are not discusse
17:34:37 <nasirhm> s/discusse/discussed/
17:35:06 <nasirhm> #topic Final thoughts/Good byes.
17:35:43 <nasirhm> Thank you everyone for joining today and sharing your input and ideas here for us to derive the spin.
17:37:08 <nasirhm> Good Bye guys, ending the meeting. :)
