DAViCal PROJECT MEETING, called for 2016-04-14, 19:00 UTC
People involved in the meeting:
Jim Fenton, Florian Schlichting, Cyril Giraud, Tuxick
Begin time: 19:15 UTC
1. Project infrastructure
1.1. Website and documentation
Discussion of Road Map page on wiki vs. Roadmap category: possible confusion; should we generate category pages when encountering a missing one?
Some gardening on the wiki would probably be a good idea.
Multilanguage issue still alive on the wiki.
1.2. Source code
More discussion (continued from previous meeting) on documentation tools. Leaning towards php-apigen because it's already packaged in Debian.
tuxick will see about setting up a cron job to update documentation, similar to the one that updates the website. running apigen shows there's some redeclaration of classes, this also needs some cleaning up, probably report via gitlab.
1.3. Downloads and binary repositories
1.3.1 Debian/DEB Packages
Florian will look into uploading davical 1.1.4 and awl to jessie-backports, as a more obvious (for our users) alternative to davical-current on people.
1.3.2 RedHat/RPM Packages
Running xgettext to update the translation templates should be separated from compiling *.mo files. The latter needs to be done when installing from git or building a package, the former is only necessary before starting a new call for translations via Transifex.
2.1. Tickets or bug reports
2.2. Patches or updates
2.3. New features or versions
Cyril suggests improving the installation process, so that a working database connection and web UI is available after package install. For configuration, using a web UI rather than manually editing config.php would make many settings more accessible. However, an authentication process is required to deny access to unexpected Internet users, e.g. with a password created during package install. Some consideration is needed what to do when the installation process finds remains of previous installs.
3.1 Mailing list and meetings
Next meeting: Thursday 2 June 2016, 19:00 UTC
3.3. Communication with Andrew McMillan
4. Off topics
Meeting adjourned 21:10 UTC.
