new minutes for the meeting held on june, 5th 2007. the (slightly)
edited log will appear, as usual, on the we site:
1) gtk+ meeting at GUADEC
Behdad asked for the day and time when the usual GTK+ team
meeting at GUADEC will be held. a slot has been "booked" on
monday (july 15th), but it should appear on the official
ACTION: Kris will ask the GUADEC team to allocate sufficient
time for the GTK+ meeting at a convenient location.
2) gtk+ schedule followup
two outstanding items left for 2.12: GtkBuilder and the
offscreen rendering patch; there are still a few small
API additions, but not critical. the question posed in the
meeting and on the mailing list is: can the GTK+ team commit
to the schedule and have GTK+ 2.12 released right after GUADEC?
Kris points out that it might already be too late to have
concerns about developers targeting GNOME 2.20 not being able
to use the full set of features added to GTK+ 2.12, so that
should not be a blocker; Matthias thinks that the current
approach of keeping the outstanding features out of trunk
until stabilised should protect a 2.12 release from delays.
ACTION: GtkBuilder will be reviewed and outstanding bits
will be addressed within this week; if the code is
deemed as stable, it will land in trunk - otherwise
a branch will be created for further stabilisation
and integration at later date.
ACTION: the team commits to the schedule decided in the last
meeting - that is a 2.12.0 release soon after GUADEC
in time for GNOME 2.20.
Tim has been busy with LinuxTag so he hadn't been able to
work on the offscreen rendering this week.
Vincent Untz, for the release-team, is satisfied with the
Xan asks for a tentative time frame for 2.14; Matthias, Kris
and Emmanuele reply that such a discussion should be held at
the GUADEC meeting.
3) action points from last meeting
the only pending action points were:
a) SVN locking investigations [Not Done] - Matthias did not
need a lock for the last release, so investigating whether
it's possible to lock the repository when doing a release
will be postponed.
b) small API pending: notebook drag and drop
and xdg-user-dirs [Done] - both landed in trunk in time
for the last developer snashots.
4) button sensitivity bug (#56070) - added by Johan Dahlin
this nasty bug has been sitting in bugzilla for a long time;
there is a fix for it but needs testing to see if it breaks
invariants and if it behaves correctly. Johan volunteered to
help Matthias in the review and test. this bug and the agenda
point (3) sparked a discussion about small API additions still
pending for a 2.12 release. Kris asked for a list of small
API bugs to be triaged and moved on the fast track for 2.12.
ACTION: Paolo Borelli volunteered for adding a page on the
wiki listing small API additions that should be
considered for inclusion in the upcoming stable
