Full chatlog attached.

(12:28:35) mattock: almost meeting time
(12:30:17) mattock: cron2, ordex and dazo won't make it today
(12:30:24) mattock: anyone here besides me?
(12:32:08) lev__: hello
(12:34:20) mattock: hi lev!
(12:34:41) mattock: now that you're here we could discuss the new tapbuilder 
(12:34:47) mattock: I'm going to configure that today
(12:34:58) mattock: anything particular you need on that node?
(12:36:14) lev__: I guess VS 2019 community edition and WDK ?
(12:37:03) mattock: that's what I'm thinking
(12:38:03) lev__: speaking of VS, I am very close to send patches to add VS 
build to Travis
(12:39:00) lev__: it downloads openvpn-build for building dependencies and 
builds openvpn with msbuild
(12:40:54) mattock: great!
(12:42:04) mattock: I'll check if I could automate the VS 2019 + WDK setup as 
well - if chocolatey packages are available for those it should be doable
(12:42:26) mattock: if there's nothing else I think we can conclude this 
mini-meeting :)
(12:42:38) lev__: yep
(12:45:44) rozmansi: hi
(12:46:44) rozmansi: just missed a mini-meeting. :)
(12:46:51) lev__: :(
(12:47:00) rozmansi: back to work I guess. :)
(12:48:47) rozmansi: lev__: btw, a few days ago I took time to wipe the dust 
off from my openvpn involvement. Noticed that openvpn-build is still using 
Visual Studio 2017 project files and it is good to hear you're working on a 
VS2019 upgrade.
(12:49:07) ***eworm too... :-p
(12:49:27) eworm: Just joined to see if there is anything new about version 2.5
(12:50:29) lev__: rozmansi: yeah in wintun patch series the first one is to 
support VS2019
(12:51:04) lev__: rozmansi: have you see this

(at community.openvpn.net)
(12:51:48) mattock: oh hi!
(12:51:49) rozmansi: lev__: yes, I was using it when developing tapctl.exe and 
(12:52:07) lev__: but it order it to work, someone needs to ack this super 
complicated patch https://patchwork.openvpn.net/patch/863/
(12:52:08) vpnHelper: Title: [Openvpn-devel] Visual Studio: make it easier to 
build with VS - Patchwork (at patchwork.openvpn.net)
(12:52:11) rozmansi: lev__: those were developed and tested in Visual Studio 
first. Then ported to MinGW.
(12:53:38) rozmansi: lev__: ACK... let me find it on the mailing list.
(13:04:26) mattock: thanks for the ACK rozmansi!
