Meeting summary

  1. Progress towards 3.16 (infapi00, 15:06:54)
    1. This week it was the release of GNOME 3.15.90 (infapi00, 15:09:02)
    2. it was somewhat late because they were waiting for several changes on gnome-shell (infapi00, 15:09:21)
    3. so they wanted them into the release before the freezes (infapi00, 15:09:36)
    4. taking into account that this kind of UI revamps usually bring regressions, it would be good to check it (infapi00, 15:10:27)
    5. additionally, the gdm fix was still not reviewed, not sure if has any kind of relation with this UI changes (infapi00, 15:11:18)
    6. gdm fix == patch that I attached to bug 729603 (infapi00, 15:11:41)
    7. fwiw, with this release (3.15.90), it officially starts the freezes (infapi00, 15:12:50)
    8. https://wiki.gnome.org/ThreePointFifteen#Schedule (infapi00, 15:12:53)
    9. so since now, UI and API/ABI freeze (infapi00, 15:13:11)
    10. next freeze is on Mon 02 (so next monday) with the release 3.15.91 (infapi00, 15:14:57)
    11. at that moment, string freeze starts (infapi00, 15:15:06)
    12. ACTION: jjmarin and infapi00 will try to check if the UI changes on gnome-shell include any regression, or any bug on the new part, creating bugs if needed (infapi00, 15:17:34)
    13. joanie will try too (infapi00, 15:17:43)
    14. mgorse got the patch committed to add appropriate accessible names to evolution status column cells (mgorse, 15:18:58)
    15. Juanjo will investigate what is about the new high contrast theme (jjmarin, 15:24:11)

  2. Marketing (infapi00, 15:25:42)
    1. https://wiki.gnome.org/Engagement/AnnualReport/2014/A11yReport (jjmarin, 15:26:50)
    2. http://blogs.igalia.com/apinheiro/2014/04/28/gnome-3-12-1-out-pdf-accessibility-progress/ (infapi00, 15:30:06)
    3. ACTION: Magdalen to add a draft update with a sentence or two about java-atk-wrapper (to the 2014 wiki page) (magpie, 15:35:21)

  3. Miscellaneous time (infapi00, 15:40:14)
    1. akappler created new emails for products that in the end it there were not created (infapi00, 15:40:41)
    2. I assume that it was due the bugzilla upgrade thing (infapi00, 15:40:53)
    3. so probably it would be good to ping them again about that, as it seems that everybody agrees on having one bugzilla product per git repository (infapi00, 15:41:24)
    4. https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=740075 (magpie, 15:43:01)
    5. https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=740075#c17 (infapi00, 15:43:25)
    6. infapi00 announced that he is leaving the release team (infapi00, 15:47:29)
    7. the main reason is that he doesn't have enough time for both a11y team and release team (infapi00, 15:47:50)
    8. in fact, during the last months his involvement with the release team has been really low (infapi00, 15:48:03)
    9. additionally, after this (good in general) experience, infapi00 concluded that it is not really necessary to be part of the release team in order to be that kind of bridge between both teams (infapi00, 15:48:43)
    10. and after all, release team is discussing about refreshing blood on the team, so it is a good moment to leave, after almost 4 years (infapi00, 15:49:13)
