<paulproteus> I'm Asheesh Laroia. I'm the web team leader for Students for Free
Culture, and spending time on IRC instead of doing my day job as a
software engineer at Creative Commons.
* hhardy has changed the topic to: introductions
<hhardy> hello Asheesh
<hhardy> anyone else new?
* hhardy has changed the topic to: triage and migration of sysadmin docs from internalwiki
<hhardy> there is some discussion of this topic on the discussion page at
<isforinsects> one suggestion was to store the docs (what needs to be shared) in
<hhardy> yes and I like that idea
<hhardy> we need one or a few people to do this
<hhardy> any takers?
<hhardy> ok we will defer this or I will do it
<isforinsects> I think you need to do it
<hhardy> I think adric is not here so we will defer rt for now
<isforinsects> or at least provide the sanitized docs.
<hhardy> ok ACTION ITEM: HH to migrate docs
* hhardy has changed the topic to: pootle
<hhardy> pootle is a tool to facilitate translation which we host
<isforinsects> What about it?
<hhardy> it would be great if we could host this in the community
<hhardy> unmanindu: has suggested we recruit some community maintainers for
<hhardy> anyone interested?
<hhardy> we will defer that then
* hhardy has changed the topic to: wiki
<hhardy> isforinsects: want to say something about wiki-gang?
<isforinsects> Yes, I've finalized the documentation/recruitment page on the
wiki [[wiki gang]]
<isforinsects> as well as created a nav-header and organized a half dozen or so
<isforinsects> Henry also set me up with a mailing list yesterday
<hhardy> I am coming to appreciate the wiki more and more
<isforinsects> I have the semantic wiki expert s.page on board, as well as some
of our other wiki-regulars and I will be sending out a specific
recruiting message this evening after the OLPC Boston meeting at
<hhardy> and I will recruit for the i-g there tonight
<isforinsects> And I pinged Frances to recruit for the Support-gang.
<isforinsects> Other than that, I think that everyone saw the wiki-stats that
were in weekend and community news?
<isforinsects> That's all I have to say
- hhardy has changed the topic to: Drupal
- adric_road (~email@example.com) has joined #olpc-admin
<hhardy> Our learning team has a drupal at http://learning.laptop.org which
could use some community assistance and content
<hhardy> hellp adric
<hhardy> hello even
<hhardy> help also :)
<hhardy> Adric: is it ok if I transfer the rt tickets about rt itself to you?
<isforinsects> I think that it's pretty awesome and should be supported as much
as we can.
<isforinsects> Let's come back to RT we skipped over it in favor of drupal
<hhardy> ok sorry anything further on Drupal?
<isforinsects> Yes. Who has the latest from Julianio?
<hhardy> Haven't heard recetnyl who will ping him?
<isforinsects> I pinged him about a vulnerability the other day and he said that
he would fix it.
<isforinsects> I don't now if he's interested in community involvement?
<isforinsects> Do we have anyone who knows drupal?
<hhardy> we should offer our services and see if we can help
<isforinsects> I know a bit, but not much.
<isforinsects> Alright, I'll offer the support of the sysadmin team if no one
<hhardy> ACTION ITEM: isforinsects to ping Juliano RE: learning.l.o
* hhardy has changed the topic to: RT
<hhardy> Adric: is it ok if I transfer the rt tickets about rt itself to you?
<hhardy> Adric I hope you are not texting while driving! :)
<hhardy> ACTION ITEM: hhardy to transfer tickets RE: rt to Adric
<adric_road> tetxt? this ssh and ircii :/
<hhardy> oh cause you are adric_road I wondered
<kimquirk> hhardy: I can do that (since I own the RT tickets)...
<hhardy> ACTION ITEM: kimquirk to transfer her rt tickets to Adric
<hhardy> there are a few more I own also
<isforinsects> Next action item?
<hhardy> Adric: anything further RE: rt?
- hhardy has changed the topic to: content server
<isforinsects> I feel that there is a need for a content server in the OLPC
<isforinsects> Like Dev for developers, we need a content dev server to develop
<hhardy> it would be nice if we can find someone in the community to host this
<isforinsects> I have some tasks that need done and require more space and
processing power than I currently have.
<hhardy> would need respectable cpu, memory and bandwidth
<hhardy> anyone have any possibilities?
<isforinsects> For instance I have 60GiB or so images that need to be processed
and reuploaded. And CJL has some scraping of public domain materials
that needs to be doen.
<isforinsects> I spoke to the freecontent people about this earlier.
<paulproteus> I can lend some CPU, memory, and bandwidth to that.
<hhardy> we should ping osuosl
<paulproteus> I don't know all the requirements yet.
<isforinsects> And paulproteus offered a few hundred GiB on his makeusad server
<hhardy> ACTION ITEM: isforinsects and paulproteus to investigate a home for
content server, ok?
<isforinsects> We ought to develop some specs of what this machine would require
and the proceedure for getting an account.
<paulproteus> Yes, I defer the requirements capturing mostly to isforinsects.
<isforinsects> I will capture req's
<hhardy> also ping gregdek maybe fedora can host
<isforinsects> What is the current procedure for getting an account on dev.l.o?
<paulproteus> isforinsects, Did you say this may be something laptop.org might
spend money on, as far as hardware?
<hhardy> could include the sound library, pakistani sesame street, photo
<isforinsects> We would need to document a little more first of course.
<hhardy> possibly if we come up with a good plan I can propose
<hhardy> I have not my own budget
<isforinsects> This very well may be something that a standard hosting company
would be willing to do. I belive that todd kelsey talked to a lot of
hosting companies and got some free accounts for OLPC
<isforinsects> It would be nice if one were a dedicated server that we had root
<isforinsects> I will pursue this and paulproteus and I should present at next
<isforinsects> Sound good?>
<hhardy> ok isfor pls coordinate w/ paulproteus and report next week?
<hhardy> I will be on vacation next week isforinsects will coordinate the
meeting in case I cannot get online
<hhardy> I plan to check in tho
<isforinsects> Ok, next action item?
* hhardy has changed the topic to: build server
<isforinsects> I need to get to the OLPC_Boston meeting across the street at 6
<hhardy> we have a nice big fast box for a build server but since dgilmore
left to go to redhat nobody is owning it
<hhardy> this requires a pretty deep knowledge of the fedora build process
<hhardy> we will look for volunteers from the community and see if fedoras
infrastructure volunteers might pitch in
* adric_road has quit (Remote host closed the connection)
<dgilmore> hhardy: what are you talking about?
<hhardy> oh hi what's the status of weka?
<dgilmore> hhardy: im still working on it
<hhardy> I haven't heard anything recently
<dgilmore> its a compose box not a build box
<kimquirk> dgilmore: what's a compose box?
<hhardy> dgilmore: you want to comtinue owning weka then?
<dgilmore> hhardy: thats fine.
<kimquirk> (for someone who doesn't know the difference)
<dgilmore> cscott was supposed to call me today to go over some of it
<dgilmore> kimquirk: images are composed on it
<dgilmore> kimquirk: as apposed to packages being built
<kimquirk> dgilmore: does that mean they actually get built on a different
<dgilmore> kimquirk: yes
* adric (~firstname.lastname@example.org) has joined #olpc-admin
<hhardy> dgilmore: have you or would you please levelset us on status and
progress of weka pls?
* adric is ok, just got lost... will bbl
<dgilmore> hhardy: i could if i new what levelsetting is
* adric has quit (Remote host closed the connection)
<hhardy> ==document it
<dgilmore> thanks for using english
<kimquirk> dgilmore: how about what the next step is, how we can help get there,
and when it will be in use (schedule kind of things)
<dgilmore> kimquirk: im comfortable that mash is working as expected
<dgilmore> so i need to extend the image composing scripts to build an image
<dgilmore> then setup the process to push todownload.laptop.org
<dgilmore> kimquirk: so in the next day or two with cscott's help it will eb
ready to go
<kimquirk> sounds good. thanks!
* hhardy has changed the topic to: mailing list
<hhardy> we could use another admin/moderator for the olpc-sysadmin mailing
list, it is pretty low volume so far
<isforinsects> I'm heading out, I'll be back in an hour or so.
<hhardy> it is a mailman list
<hhardy> any takers?
<hhardy> ok deferred
Crank & Pedal mirrors
* hhardy has changed the topic to: installation/configuration of crank and pedal mirrors at 1cc
<hhardy> I have two machines intended to be able to be used as hot spares for
crank and pedal.l.o
<hhardy> I am having some problems figuring out how to get them to be able to
autoboot into the images so they can be a hot failover
<hhardy> if someone with experience in this can assist me it would be much
* hhardy has changed the topic to: recruitment
<hhardy> Let's get the word out to people we know and trust who might be
ineterested in the infrastructure group
<hhardy> in that regard will be heading over to the Boston OLPC meeting in a
update roles/responsibilities on wiki
* hhardy has changed the topic to: update roles/responsibilities on wiki
<hhardy> ACTION ITEM: hhardy and/or isforinsects to update
roles/responsibilties for the i-g
<hhardy> on wiki
<paulproteus> hhardy, Maybe you can set up heartbeat for that? re: autoboot
<paulproteus> I haven't set this up myself, though.
<hhardy> paulproteus: I'd appreciate another mind on this I've gotten to a
point of frustration where it is taking longer than it should
<hhardy> can I consult with you?
<paulproteus> Yes, but not right now. Maybe tomorrow this time?
<hhardy> sure tomorrow this time this chan
* hhardy has changed the topic to: ACTION ITEMS
