ubuntouristACTION doffs his cap...16:01
inana_16Well the first item, yo mentioned jelkner that zOnny is already doing it, but you want to add anything else?16:01
inana_16 Can we agree to adopt Black ( to set our source code styling? (jelkner)16:01
jelknerStefan, who can't be here today16:01
jelkneremailed us that he has been pushing for this for 5 months!16:01
ubuntouristI tried it two years ago after seeing it at PyCon.16:01
ubuntourist(I believe I recommended it then as well.)16:02
jelknerlet's just do it, then16:02
jelknerthe only new thing is getting me to use it with the PRIMEs16:02
jelknerseems like i'm behind the curve (as usual)16:02
jelknerACTION done16:02
inana_16thanks jelkner 16:02
ubuntouristBut, it is a bit overly anal for my tastes. Still, it seems to be the current fad. So, I'll +1 it.16:03
ubuntouristACTION is done16:03
jelknerubuntourist, the author makes a strong argument as to why you have to be opinionated in order to automate16:03
jelknerand given our very mixed level of skills and experience16:03
jelknerbetter to error on the side of too anal, than not anal enough ;-)16:04
jelknerACTION done again16:04
inana_16Next item: Setting up Natalia to host BBB meeting with Meghan on Monday (jelkner) This is already done jelkner , thanks for that16:04
jelknerwe did this before the meeting16:04
jelknerinana_16 should confirm it works16:04
jelknerACTION done16:05
inana_16so, next one:16:05
inana_16Possible synergy between CIDU and Platform Coops Now course (jelkner)16:05
jelknercool, this will be brief too, but just FYI16:05
inana_16ACTION Curious about it16:05
jelkneri'm in a small group tasked with developing a "minimal viable platform" as our group project for the 2nd part of the course16:06
jelknerwe started talking about driving platforms16:06
jelknerand looked at LibreTaxi16:06
jelknerwhich may have some interest to our Colorado drivers16:06
jelknerits early, but a cool possibility16:07
jelknerLibreTaxi seems to be a bit of Go code that rides on top of Telegram16:07
jelknerallowing folks wanting rides to connect with those wanting to provide them16:07
ubuntouristBTW, who's on Telegram? (I am, but rarely use.)16:07
jelknerit doesn't handle any financial exchange at this point16:07
jelknerubuntourist, i am now16:08
jelknersince last night16:08
jelknerbecause of LibreTaxi16:08
jelknermore later16:08
jelknerACTION done16:08
ubuntouristjelkner, later we can exchange contact / credentials.16:08
ubuntouristACTION is done16:08
jelknersure, ubuntourist 16:08
jelknerafter the meeting16:08
inana_16Thanks jelkner 16:08
inana_16next item: Integrating Louie into our workflow (jelkner)16:09
ubuntouristI thought I saw his name on IRC when I started this morning a few minutes before 12, but now I don't see him.16:09
jelknerUpdate: Sunday, July 19th (Liberation Day in Nicaragua ;-) will be Louie's first official day back with us16:09
jelknerhe gave 2 week notice16:10
jelknerbut he works the next 2 sundays, ubuntourist 16:10
jelkneri put it on the agenda because he asked me about how to begin working with the group even during those 2 weeks16:10
jelkneri told him he should reach out to ubuntourist zOnny and inana_16 16:10
ubuntouristjelkner, I mean, I got a notice that _louiselkneralfaro_ (or something similar) was currently logged in to IRC.16:11
jelkneri don't see him here now16:11
jelknerplease be on the lookout for communication from him16:11
jelkneri'm suggesting ubuntourist zOnny and he start looking at a postgresql study group16:12
jelknerbut whatever you all figure out...16:12
jelknerACTION done16:12
inana_16Ok, next item16:13
inana_16MayFirst Nextcloud and our bylaw revision (jelkner)16:13
jelknerthis is a continuation of our previous discussion16:13
jelknerinana_16, jelkner, stefan, and louie are the group that has agreed to take on by-law revision / update16:14
jelknerwe need a work flow16:14
jelknerzOnny suggested wiki16:14
zOnnyjelkner -.-16:14
jelknerwhich i liked, but it really doesn't support what we need16:14
jelknersince the by-laws are a document we will be showing to the world16:14
jelknerand they need to look good16:14
jelknerso Nextcloud is the logical choice16:14
jelkneri have the document on my personal May First Nextcloud16:15
jelknernow I need to learn how to share it with inana_16 stefan and louie (and the rest of the gang)16:15
jelknerACTION done16:15
zOnnyhow about the public dir?16:15
jelknerzOnny, that will be the place where the PDF goes16:16
ubuntouristWhat does NextCloud use as its format? (Or what are you using?)16:16
jelknerbut i don't know how a shared edit workflow would work there16:16
jelknerubuntourist, odt16:16
jelkneredited with LibreOffice16:16
jelknerinana_16, let's move on16:17
*** GFbot has joined #novawebdev16:17

zOnnyzOnny ?16:18
inana_16We talke whith jelkner that we need everyone's information in order to do this16:18
inana_16so, I think the best way to do it is on BT16:19
jelknermy son is a tax accountant16:19
inana_16in account information, it would be a good place 16:19
zOnnyso, the question will be16:19
jelkneri asked him to do our taxes for us16:19
jelknerhe said sure16:19
zOnnyAre we going to have W2 2019?16:19
jelknerand then said, give me the information16:19
jelknerand i said, ?????16:19
jelknerand he said, sorry, i can't do taxes with ?????16:20
inana_16jelkner, read zOnny's question16:20
jelknerwe didn't do much business in 201916:20
jelknerso i'm thinking we don't really have anything to file16:20
zOnnyjelkner Federal CU can help with that16:20
jelknerand could start trying to get this going now in 202016:20
jelknerbut i wanted to confirm that16:21
jelknersince the filing day is approaching16:21
jelknerand y'all need to know what to do16:21
jelknerACTION done16:22
jelknerunless i hear an objection16:22
jelkneri'm going to start with 202016:22
jelknerand work to get you all the info you need to file for quarter 1 of 202016:22
inana_16Anything else to add?16:23
ubuntouristSo, quick report: zOnny now has both the "Pac-U-lator" (TM) and "Sound Advice" (TM) running on his system -- as do I.16:23
ubuntouristI'm understanding that PAldea is coming on-board with that, right?16:23
jelknerubuntourist, we started talking with PAldea before this meeting16:24
jelknerto see if he would like to work on this16:24
jelknerso getting him setup is a needed step for that16:24
zOnnyubuntourist good point, I was trying to help PAldea on it, but he has Windows and virtual machine without GUI16:24
ubuntourist(So, I take it that's a tentative "yes" to the onboarding. ;-) )16:24
PAldeaI would be interested as long as the GUI issue can be resolved in some way16:25
ubuntouristPAldea, Ouch. I talked with Gallaudet about making a Windows version as well, but they weren't interested, and I wasn't enthusiastic.16:25
zOnnyubuntourist -116:26
ubuntouristPAldea, (I wrote it on Linux for deployment on a Mac OS X box.)16:26
PAldeaI can try to run it on my mac, but as I said without administrator, I could be facing issues16:26
ubuntouristPAldea, but theoretically, it can be jiggered to work on Windows too.16:26
ubuntouristI just never pursued. We can discuss later.16:26
ubuntouristACTION is done with that for the moment...16:27
inana_16zOnny, can we meet to talk about CIDU's Issues and be ready for tomorrows meeting?16:27
