*** lelkneralfaro has joined #novawebdev16:05
jelknerglad lelkneralfaro is here for this16:05
lelkneralfaroyeah sorry i'm late. still had the 12PM meeting set in my head16:05
jelknerwe talked earlier about having feature requests / bugs be inside the app16:06
jelknerso you don't need to have a separate gitlab account for that16:06
jelknerit would be up to us to configure mirroring as we want it to work16:06
jelknerwhere are we on that?16:06
jelkneri made an account on MSP siste16:06
jelknerbut don't see bug tracking at all16:07
*** zOnny has joined #novawebdev16:07
jelknerso i don't know how this workflow is supposed to go16:07
jelkneri'd like to meet with zOnny and lelkneralfaro after this meeting to talk about this16:07
jelknerACTION done16:07
abuchholzShould be something that appears that email us... or we could use GitLabs API to fill things out16:07
*** GFbot has joined #novawebdev16:07
ubuntouristabuchholz, leveraging the API was my suggestion a few weeks back. I still think that's the best approach.16:08
nrcernanext item: Lessons from BT issue #52 ( 16:09
jelknerthis is mine too16:09
ubuntouristBTW, any clever JavaScriptiness (or other solution) to do a screen capture / screen shot might help.16:09
nrcernathat's you again jelkner :-)16:09
jelkneragaric is making a concerted effort to use BT16:09
SITarabutaubuntourist they wouldn't use it anyway ;-)16:10
jelknerit is so interesting for me to watch our brilliant young dev grapple with the issues that actually prevent users16:10
jelknereven fairly competent ones16:10
jelknerfrom using an application16:10
jelkneri want to market16:10
jelknerbut for me to market the dev team needs to deliver usable software16:11
jelknerit isn't "usable" if people aren't using it16:11
jelknerwe need to learn care and feeding of partners16:11
jelknerit is the love that we show them that will come back to us in return16:11
jelknerACTION done16:11
nrcernathanks jelkner 16:12
nrcernanext item:Sharing newsletter knowledge from MSP with CJSPE 16:12
jelknerme again16:12
jelknerACTION has been a busy old beaver16:13
jelkneri have a meeting with sam from MSP this afternoon16:13
jelknerand i've been emailing katie and dante from CJSPE16:13
jelknerthey have a newsletter16:13
jelknerthey like the idea of having an online archive like MSP does16:13
jelknerwe need to help them get that16:14
jelknerthis is what i had dreamed would happen with LO16:14
jelknerpeople "in the struggle" would start using it16:14
jelknerand sharing best practices to help move their work forward16:14
jelknerso it would become a real tool for change16:14
jelkneri talked with nrcerna about this earlier this morning16:15
nrcernaAccording the workflow that you sent we need to follow, what you mentioned early regarding the newsletter jelkner , zOnny would be the one that can help them to undertand how it works.16:15
jelknershe will coordinate it with zOnny and lelkneralfaro 16:15
jelknerACTION done16:15
nrcernawe're in the same page16:15
nrcernaOk, next item: 16:16
nrcernaThe Blog for Heylin integrated into NOVALACIRO site? (and meeting with her today) 16:16
jelknerme again16:16
jelknerACTION has been a *really* busy old beaver!16:16
jelkneri check in with heylin each week16:16
jelknershe is making great progress on the new dulce hogar coop16:16
jelknerbut she isn't documenting it well16:17
nrcernathat's great16:17
jelknerthere are two reasons that is very important16:17
jelkner1. it shares our experience with others interested in starting coops16:17
jelkner2. it provides novalaciro funders with motivation to keep funding us16:17
abuchholzmight I recommend before putting it a lot of work and integrating the blog and novalaciro that we have a link in the navbar to a subdomain with the blog instance running. Just so we can determine how much she is going to use it.16:18
jelknerso, i thought, heylin should do a weekly blog with descriptions and pictures and susch16:18
jelknerabuchholz just anticipated what i was going to say16:18
jelknerso i'm done16:18
jelknerthanks, abuchholz!16:18
