============================= Weekly Zope developer meeting ============================= This is the summary of the weekly Zope developer meeting which happened on Tuesday, 2010-04-06 on #z...@irc.freenode.org from 3pm to 3:30pm (UTC). The agenda for this meeting is available in the mailing list archives: https://mail.zope.org/pipermail/zope-dev/2010-April/039981.html The IRC logs are located here: http://zope3.pov.lt/irclogs-zope/%23zope.2010-04-06.log.html#t2010-04-06T18:00:01 Tres Seaver was filling in for Christian Theune as conventer due to illness. Zope2 release manager --------------------- The community welcomes Hanno Schlichting as the new release manager for Zope2. In addition to closing / responding to dozens of bugs in the past week, Hanno has also proposed a roadmap for Zope 2.13 and has made the release tag for Zope 2.12.4. Porting packages to Zope3 ------------------------- Lennart Regebro reported that he has branches waiting for the first three "most depended-on" ZTK packages (``zope.event``, ``zope.interface``, and ``zope.testing``). After considering naming the new releases ``4.0``, the consensus was to just name them the next "normal" major release, as long as there are no backward-incompatible API changes. Some discussion of the general problem of doctests breaking due to exception formatting led to a suggestion from Jim Fulton that we implement a testing API similar the ``unittest.TestCase.assertRaises``, but with the additional feature that it returns the exception value, to permit further assertions about the state of that object. Buildbots --------- No one had new updates on the topic. Sidnei da Silva reported that he is close to reconstructing the script used to build ``win64`` images for Amazon EC. Tres Seaver reported that his request to Microsoft for dontaed VisualStudio licnese to support builds / tests of ``zope.*`` packages on Windows for Python 2.4 and 2.5 is still stalled. Baiju M noted that Rackspace can also support Windows in its cloud: http://www.rackspacecloud.com/ . Tracker status -------------- Charlie Clark reported that he had gotten his script for checking Launchpad for "languishing" bugs working. He posted that package to ``zope-...@zope.org`` during the meeting. Bug Days -------- After some discussion, Adam Groszer and Baiju M agreed to widen their planned ``bluebream`` sprint to include more general ZTK issues. The sprint, originally set for Saturday, 2010-04-10, was rescheduled to Saturday, 2010-04-24. Charlie Clark asked for announcments, plus volunteers willing to help mentor new exterminators during the bug day. Adam and Baiju will organize a web page for coordinating the bug day activity, and send out the announcements. Carried Over ------------ - Resurrecting the "sprint schedule" page, http://wiki.zope.org/zope3/SprintSchedule - A more general calendar (e.g., for Zope / Python related conferences, symposia, sprints, etc.)
