Return to October Meetings
[15:08] <hdu_hh> should we start without ericb2 or paveljanik, even though they wrote the agenda and scheduled the meeting?
[15:09] <obr> hdu_hh: Pavel just joined ;-)
[15:10] <hdu_hh> ok, let's proceed then.
[15:10] <pjout> I haven't wrote the agenda.
[15:10] <mav_eric> the agenda was mostly written bei Eric
[15:10] <hdu_hh> pjout: you would be missed in the chat though ;-)
[15:11] <hdu_hh> Since most players are around, lets start
[15:12] <hdu_hh> 1. welcome new developers!
[15:12] <hdu_hh> fne: welcome Frank!
[15:12] <fne> hi folks
[15:12] <hdu_hh> fne: would you like to introduce yourself?
[15:12] <ismael_> hi
[15:12] <fne> of couse, my name is frank and i started working for sun this monday
[15:13] <fne> i switched to mac one year ago and i am using OOo for many years now
[15:14] <fne> my first task ist to work on the accessibility feature of the mac port
[15:14] <hdu_hh> fne: I'm looking forward to work with you
[15:14] <fne> thank you
[15:14] <hdu_hh> are there more new devs?
[15:14] * obr too ;-)
[15:16] <hdu_hh> 2. latest Cocoa news: last fixes, aquavcl03, other CWS
[15:16] <hdu_hh> aquavcl03 was ready for QA until a P1 on master required a rebuild :-/
[15:17] <hdu_hh> other than that it looks quite good to me
[15:17] <hdu_hh> even the buttons are animated now ;-) Thanks PL!
[15:19] <hdu_hh> mikesic: I saw you started working on sound and quicktime integration :-) What's the name of your CWS?
[15:22] * hdu_hh doesn't see mikesic anymore but I didn't see a "has left either"...
[15:23] <hdu_hh> tino: we just talked, but would you give a quick update on DragAndDrop?
[15:23] <tino> hdu_hh: sure
[15:24] <tino> I'm continuing my D&D work and recently got hit by a problem...
[15:26] <tino> The OOo D&D interfaces as designed 7 years ago make implementing D&D on Mac OS X due to technical constraints of the Mac platform difficult
[15:26] <tino> Herbert, Oliver and me were discussing possible solutions a few minutes ago
[15:27] <tino> At the moment there is one solution on the table that remains to be tried
[15:28] <tino> If it works we are fine and will have D&D soon ... if not... :(
[15:28] <tino> But even in case this first option doesn't work we will find a solution
[15:28] <tino> For details see #79620
[15:28] <IZBot> porting TASK STARTED P3 Implement Drag&Drop for OOo on Mac OS X http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=79620
[15:29] <tino> So much for D&D atm
[15:30] <hdu_hh> any other points we need to discuss?
[15:31] <mav_eric> hdu_hh: I just wanted to announce that we will be present at MacLiveExpo in Cologne Germany from Nov. 15 to Nov. 18 2007

[15:33] <mav_eric> hdu_hh: yes the fairs are similiar but the one in Cologne is newer and not that recognized yet
[15:34] <hdu_hh> mav_eric: we'll have an even better version by then...
[15:34] <pjout> jsi_sun: I am here
[15:34] <mav_eric> hdu_hh: I hope so :-)
[15:35] <jsi_sun> pjout: time to visit Germany Nov -> Cologne?
[15:35] <mav_eric> hdu_hh: it's all about beeing present and showing the progress
[15:35] <pjout> jsi: I do not have my calendar here

[15:35] <hdu_hh> mav_eric: we definitely have something to show :-) Thanks a lot for volunteering!
[15:35] <jsi_sun> pjout: would be great...
[15:36] <pjout> isthere an airport close to the city? or how far it is from Prague?
[15:36] <mav_eric> hdu_hh: say thanks to ericb he coaxed me into this and I have help from our experienced fair team
[15:37] <mav_eric> pjout: the airport would be Cologne/Bonn
[15:37] <pjout> ok, I'll have a look in the evening
[15:37] <jsi_sun> pjout: yes
[15:38] <hdu_hh> pjout: I'm sure there is a direct train too...

[15:46] <mav_eric> hdu_hh: ok.
[15:46] <hdu_hh> next item: next aqua CWS
[15:47] <hdu_hh> I suggest to wait till CWS aquavcl03 is settled before opening a new one
[15:48] <hdu_hh> there are just too many important changes in it
[15:48] <hdu_hh> I suggest to delay starting aquavcl04 until at least monday

[15:56] <obr> jsi_sun: you mean if someone is currently connected ?
[15:57] <jsi_sun> obr: no, if it would be possible to get it for use... next week or so...
[15:58] <obr> jsi_sun: shouldn't be a problem, would check with kr to be safe
