Hi, Here's the summary of the IRC meeting.
--- COMMUNITY MEETING Place: #openvpn-meeting on irc.freenode.net Date: Wednesday 15th May 2019 Time: 11:30 CEST (9:30 UTC) Planned meeting topics for this meeting were here: <https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/Topics-2019-05-09> Your local meeting time is easy to check from services such as <http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock> SUMMARY dazo, lev, mattock, ordex, plaisthos, rozmansi, syzzer and zx2c4 participated in this meeting. -- Mattock gave a brief tap-windows6 HLK testing update. He's working on an OpenVPN setup that HLK tests would be happy with. The simplistic version proposed by cron2 did not work as-is. -- Talked about the wintun driver. Lev managed to make it work on openvpn3 with a fairly small amount of work. It was agreed that integrating it with openvpn2 makes sense. -- Discussed the location of the next hackathon. Decided on Trento, Italy, where ordex lives at the moment. Ordex will create a Doodle poll for the hackathon. Other proposed alternatives were Delft, Netherlands and Oulu, Finland. -- Discussed the patches in patchwork. The sitnl patches have been ACKed and cron2 wants to work them in tonight. Dazo is working on patches for auth-token hmac from plaisthos. -- Agreed that mini-hackathons will be organized on "Fridays after Thursday meetings". Mattock will mention the mini-hackathons in the the monthly meeting invitation emails. -- Full chatlog attached. -- Samuli Seppänen Community Manager OpenVPN Technologies, Inc irc freenode net: mattock
(12:41:43) mattock: back at my laptop finally (12:42:05) mattock: https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/wiki/Topics-2019-05-15 (12:42:06) vpnHelper: Title: Topics-2019-05-15 – OpenVPN Community (at community.openvpn.net) (12:43:06) dazo: so ... tap-windows6 update? (12:43:07) mattock: so it seems we have the usual stuff only (12:43:26) mattock: working on openvpn setup that HLK would be happy with (12:43:46) mattock: what gert proposed does not work as-is (12:44:03) mattock: my original client-server setup worked fine for the most part (12:44:13) mattock: but we don't need to discuss the gory details in this meeting (12:44:35) lev__: hello (12:44:38) mattock: hi lev! (12:44:56) plaisthos: I am here (12:45:04) plaisthos: hey all (12:45:13) mattock: so many people and cron2 said he'd be a tad late (12:45:50) ordex: hey hey (12:46:46) mattock: hi! (12:46:53) mattock: we're breaking record numbers today :) (12:47:00) mattock: now we'd just need to discuss something :) (12:47:36) syzzer: do we have plans for the hackathon this year already? (12:47:39) lev__: I have some news on Wintun (12:47:45) syzzer: let's do that first (12:48:06) lev__: So I was able to make openvpn3 work with wintun (12:49:10) lev__: I had to do (a few) changes to openvpn3, but nothing drastic. Also a small change to wintun to allow non-LocalSystem processes to open device (12:49:18) rozmansi: @lev__ nice... Any first impressions, thoughts? (12:49:31) plaisthos: syzzer: there an idea floating around that we all invade ordex's place (12:50:09) rozmansi: @lev__ ah yes, I have that patch for non-LocalSystem for my testing too. (12:50:30) dazo: rumours has it ordex won big time on a bitcoin bet, so he bought a massive mansion up on the Italian alps ........ (12:51:10) lev__: I found a bug in wintun readme :) I didn't have time yet to run proper performance tests, but with remote VPN server I got same performance of tap-windows6 and wintun. I plan to run it against VPN server in local network, preferably in AWS (12:51:13) plaisthos: no that was syzzer collegue (12:51:16) ordex: :D (12:52:07) lev__: so maybe after testing and stabilising openvpn3, we could add wintun support to openvpn2 (12:52:21) ordex: I am looking for options here - I have space in a coworking space and they have meeting rooms (12:52:28) ordex: with restaurants nearby and so on (12:52:34) plaisthos: ordex also lives in a strange place where everyone is Italian but some people respond in Austrian if they detect your German Accent (12:54:47) syzzer: that sounds perfect (12:54:48) mattock: +1 for wintun (12:55:05) syzzer: both the wintun results, plans and the hackathon solution (12:56:19) mattock: I don't mind invading italy, and germans already have experience on it (12:56:24) mattock: +1 (12:56:38) mattock: I'm referring to ~400AD (12:56:50) dazo: :-P (12:57:04) lev__: ah, old good times when we were young (12:57:07) mattock: indeed (12:57:19) mattock: when ships were of wood and men were of iron (12:57:29) mattock: anyways (12:57:32) syzzer: yeah, Italy sounds great. Otherwise I could also invite you to Delft again (12:57:46) syzzer: but let's keep that as a backup (12:57:58) lev__: or we can meet in Oulu, Northern Finland (12:58:14) mattock: I would not mind that either (12:58:22) syzzer: lev__: sounds good to, just maybe in summer then? (12:58:35) mattock: maybe in mid-winter when you can go skiing etc. (12:58:42) dazo: +1 for summer time in Oulu :) (12:58:44) mattock: summer is gree nwinter there (12:58:46) lev__: yes, summer is definitely better here weather-wise (12:58:46) plaisthos: mattock1: I like light (12:59:15) syzzer: though skiing sounds good too (12:59:31) ordex: :D so many options now hehe (12:59:31) mattock: there's actually snow that far up north, unlike here - you never know (12:59:39) mattock: is there snow there ordex? (12:59:45) ordex: now yes (12:59:48) ordex: even though it was not expected (12:59:59) lev__: I wouldn't mind to visit Italy (13:00:12) mattock: everybody seems to be in agreement about italy (13:00:18) dazo: Italy, Delft, Oulu .... that's a nice line-up :) (13:00:40) dazo: mattock1++ (13:00:52) mattock: it has been decided then (13:00:53) syzzer: ordex: you in Trento, right? (13:01:32) ordex: right (13:01:34) dazo: But .... perhaps syzzer and lev__ could already consider if they want to invite for next years hackathon ... so we can plan that a bit more earlier than last years ... (13:01:38) lev__: rozmansi: do you have skype or something? I might have a few stupid questions about wintun (13:01:49) dazo: lev__: appear.in! (13:01:50) lev__: rozmansi: or shall I ask them on #wireguard (13:02:04) zx2c4: lev__: ask them in #wireguard (13:02:05) dazo: zx2c4 ^^^ (13:02:12) dazo: ahh, you were here :) (13:03:11) zx2c4: lev__: [reading backlog] can you submit a patch for your bug in the readme? (13:04:18) zx2c4: lev__: alternatively, you can query me directly here on IRC (13:05:05) lev__: zx2c4: sure. That's about padding size calculation, "4+" seems to be unnecessary (13:05:11) zx2c4: lev__: you dont need to change the ACL permissions to use it as administrator (13:06:19) zx2c4: lev__: that might be right... (13:06:59) lev__: zx2c4: hm.. I'll double check. IIRC it didn't work when I ran my app via remote debugger running as administrator (13:11:34) zx2c4: lev__: confirmed the 4+ is required (13:11:34) zx2c4: thanks (13:11:36) zx2c4: fixing. (13:13:28) zx2c4: lev__: pushed. (13:13:38) mattock: open source at work (13:13:45) mattock: shall we move on? (13:14:09) dazo: yupp! (13:15:32) mattock: so we have 2.5 and patchwork (13:15:44) zx2c4: lev__: er, i meant *not* required. but you get the idea (13:15:44) mattock: any patches that would need coordination? (13:15:46) ***cron2 is here! (13:15:48) cron2: sorry (13:16:07) mattock: np (13:17:43) mattock: anything to add to the above cron2? (13:18:41) cron2: what didnt work in the HLK setup I proposed? (13:18:53) mattock: cron2: can we discuss that outside of the meeting on #openvpn-devel? (13:18:57) mattock: it could take a while (13:19:06) cron2: if you stop disconnecting every few minutes :-) (13:19:16) mattock: I only disconnect several times a day :D (13:19:17) cron2: otherwise, fine with me (13:19:29) mattock: I know, the bouncer (13:19:44) mattock: anything to discuss regarding 2.5 or patchwork patches? (13:19:44) cron2: anyway - 2.5 and patchwork (13:19:59) cron2: I got all I need for sitnl now (-1 and 1..7 all ACKed), want to work them in tonight (13:20:44) cron2: last Friday's hackathon was semi-successful ("someone besides me and mattock showed up!") - we can improve on this :-) (13:20:51) dazo: nice! I'm planning to get a chance to rewiew Arne's patches for the auth-token hmac stuff (13:21:26) dazo: cron2: I was present ... but was "hidden" working on some other patches for openvpn2 ... hope to have that ready too in not too far future (13:21:44) cron2: good enough :) (13:21:50) dazo: (the plug-in improvements Greg Cox provided ended up being more work than initially expected) (13:21:58) mattock: next hackathon friday next week, right? I'm not 100% sure we actually decided to follow the "Friday after Thursday meeting" schedule (13:22:08) cron2: nobody objected (13:22:12) mattock: ok (13:22:19) mattock: it is official then (13:22:32) mattock: easy to remember, and I'll add that to June's invitation email (13:22:56) dazo: This Friday is a public holiday (constitution day) ... I'll be mostly unavailable on Friday, but will try to get some community work done today and tomorrow (13:22:57) cron2: I'll be sitting in airports and plane for half the day (flight leaves at 12, arrives back home at 4, plus travel to/from airport = 10 to 5:30) (13:23:01) cron2: dazo: n ext friday (13:23:09) cron2: "the one after thursday's meeting" (13:23:31) cron2: but getting work done any other day is always welcome :-) (13:23:53) cron2: (the "agree on a day" thing is mostly to help with review/next version cycle delays) (13:25:14) dazo: yeah (13:26:44) mattock: 4 minutes left (13:27:01) mattock: anything else to discuss? (13:27:29) syzzer: who sends the hackathon doodle? (13:28:09) syzzer: traditionally that's done by the host, *hint* (13:28:14) mattock: :) (13:28:30) mattock: indeed, because without the host organizing the hackathon would be challenging (13:28:38) mattock: ordex: this landed on your plate it seems :D (13:29:06) ***cron2 has nothing else (13:29:44) syzzer: good, time for lunch then :) (13:29:44) ordex: lol sounds like it (13:29:54) ordex: I will provide some more details later on (13:30:02) plaisthos: syzzer: did you see my question if of not sending the --auth digest for ncp in #openvpn-devel? (13:30:17) plaisthos: shoudl we just assume both client and server always have the same? (13:31:37) mattock: ok official meeting over - people are leaving for lunch already :)
