06:58 < whot> good morning gnets
06:58 < whot> gents
06:59 < stukreit> gnats?
06:59 <+alanc> good afternoon
06:59 -!- marcoz [] has joined #xf-bod
06:59 < marcoz> hi all
07:01 < agd5f> hello
07:02 < mupuf_> hello guys
07:03 < whot> egbert: awake?
07:03 < whot> keithp: ping
07:04 < mupuf_> marcoz: well spotted!
07:06 < whot> ok, five past the hour, let's get started.
07:06 < whot> I don't have much on the agenda though other than updates on the GSoC and XDC. Anyone else have any items?
07:06 < marcoz> mupuf_: so I wasn't blind then. that's good to know. ;)
07:07 < stukreit> nothing from me
07:07 < mupuf_> nope, nothing either
07:08 <+alanc> did anyone answer the EVoC query we got?
07:08 < mupuf_> alanc: I did ... only to the board
07:09 < mupuf_> I just fw it to the guy
07:09 <+alanc> ah, okay, thanks
07:09 < mupuf_> I've*
07:09 < whot> GSoC status summary is that all slots got accepted, and we're now in the "say hello to each other" period.
07:09 < whot> actual work starts 19 May
07:09 < mupuf_> right
07:10 < whot> as for the EVoC, we've had a surprising number of queries. I answered one on irc yesterday or they day before
07:10 <+alanc> we tend to get a few after GSoC rejections go out and students start going through the list of alternate programs they can apply to if they didn't get in
07:10 < whot> I'm a bit curious why they all showed up just after GSoC acceptance period is over when afaict none of them filed a xorg gsoc project. could be coincidental (raised awareness), could be a rejected student elsewhere (didn't check), could be something else
07:11 < whot> alanc: ah, ok
07:11 <+alanc> I would bet they applied to other projects for GSoC, but those projects don't have fallback sponsorships like we do
07:12 < whot> marcoz: you're still listed as the official EVoC contact btw, you aware of that?
07:12 < marcoz> yes
07:12 < mupuf_> he was the one who handled them 2 years ago
07:13 < marcoz> but I'm happy to give it up to Martin or anyone else interested to do it.
07:13 < mupuf_> marcoz: hey hey, I have enough work on my side ;)
07:14 < mupuf_> pressure is building for the PhD (last 6 months)
07:14 < marcoz> mupuf_: light at the end of the tunnel.
07:14 < marcoz> approaching train headlamp
07:15 < mupuf_> actually, the tunnel really is writing the thesis, I had a relatively good time during the phd ;) But that's off topic
07:16 < mupuf_> I'm very sorry though, I said I should send the XDC's CFP and I didn't yet
07:16 < mupuf_> I'll do it right after the meeting
07:17 < whot> mupuf_: re phd, one of my favourite motivational comics:
07:17 < mupuf_> ah ah, yeah, the guy who drew that is an optimist!
07:17 < whot> hehe
07:17 < mupuf_> At best, I think it should look like a thin line
07:18 < mupuf_> or a collection of thin lines :D
07:19 < whot> so regarding EVoC I think a min requirement is a good proposal. especially now that lots of us will be buys with mentoring anyway
07:20 < whot> but really I'd prefer there to be one of us being the go-to guy and answering most emails. Waiting for 7 others and whether they reply is a bit tedious
07:20 < whot> marcoz: you ok to do this?
07:20 < marcoz> whot: yep,
07:21 < marcoz> though I'll only be able to answer the 'easy' questions
07:22 < mupuf_> marcoz: not sure any of us could answer anything you couldn't
07:23 < whot> ok, I think that about covers it for now, the rest we play by ear.
07:24 < whot> mupuf_: XDC updates - anything noteworthy?
07:24 < mupuf_> nope
07:24 < whot> then that about covers it for today. any other topics of interest?
07:25 < mupuf_> not that I can think of
07:26 < whot> in that case, I hereby release you guys to attend beer o'clock, bed-time, or the start of the working day
