18:29 Heffalump ah, that's 2.8  - I doubt we'd support that
18:29 Heffalump unless it's easy
18:29 Heffalump need to get 2.10 out though!

21:15 vikraman Heffalump: hi
21:15 vikraman Heffalump: I had mentioned a project few months back about using patch theory to do issue tracking
21:15 vikraman I was wondering if it is a good idea to propose this as a gsoc project?
21:24 Heffalump vikraman: I think that'd be great
21:25 Heffalump I put something on the wiki aout a project doing it in the context of darcsden, but that's not essential
21:26 vikraman oh
21:27 vikraman I was supposed to do it as part of my masters' thesis, but I got sidetracked
21:27 vikraman I did spend some time reading the camp patch theory
21:28 vikraman although some things are totally unclear to me, like commuting two conflictors etc.
21:29 vikraman I cannot locate your wiki page, do you remember the link perhaps?
21:32 vikraman ok, I have found it
21:33 Heffalump the darcs gsoc ideas page
21:33 Heffalump it's pretty brief
21:33 vikraman yes, I see it
21:33 Heffalump although I remember talking to you about this topic, I'm afraid I can't remember any details. Was it on IRC or email that we discussed it most?
21:34 vikraman it was on irc
21:34 Heffalump btw I would steer well clear of conflictors etc for this kind of project
21:36 Heffalump got it: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/darcs/2013-08-15
21:36 vikraman which other distributed issue tracking projects did you have in mind?
21:36 Heffalump I couldn't remember any specific ones off the top of my head when I wrote that
21:37 Heffalump so none, but I'm sure they exist
21:37 vikraman I haven't been able to find any resources about how conflicts are handled in a dist. issue tracker
21:37 vikraman I should try fossil, see how it works
21:38 Heffalump with reference to our previous conversation, a GSoC project should generally focus more on the practical side of things
21:40 vikraman hm, of course
21:40 vikraman I have actually been a gsocer 3 times before!
21:40 Heffalump great!
21:43 vikraman http://www.fossil-scm.org/index.html/doc/tip/www/bugtheory.wiki
21:45 Heffalump interesting, thanks
21:45 Heffalump I think there's a pretty large design space here
21:46 Heffalump it's interesting that they don't branch tickets - I'd consider that to be fundamental
21:46 Heffalump though perhaps they mean something slightly different
21:47 * vikraman tries setting up fossil
