00:05 gsilva sorry to ask but are all of you guys contributing to Bento?
00:05 gsilva Or is this the french community?
00:08 pdurbin people here seem to use Bento
00:08 pdurbin melodie at least
00:08 pdurbin prologic made his own linux distro
00:09 prologic I have indeed
00:09 prologic I need to get back on that soon :)
00:09 gsilva Oh, okay. Just asking since I'm pretty much the project manager of Bento
00:10 gsilva and I was wondering if we could get more support for the distribution
00:11 pdurbin gsilva: did you start Bento?
00:11 prologic what's unique about Gento?
00:11 gsilva No, I'm just helping melodie to manage it
00:11 gsilva I'm interested in developing a project management career so I'm using this project to learn some stuff
00:11 gsilva prologic, Bento is a lightweigth distribution of an OpenBox machine
00:12 prologic I see
00:13 gsilva However, since she is pretty much alone doing all of the development, I was trying to find more people interested in contributing to, first, enchance Bento, second to have more people to talk about and you know... Be productive
00:14 prologic when did Bento start?
00:14 prologic seems (from first glance) that Val has made more progress? :)
00:14 prologic our goals are a little different though
00:15 prologic small, static core, finit based init
00:15 prologic and a brand new package manager
00:15 prologic also integrated Docker
00:16 gsilva Bento started a while back. But since melodie is alone doing all of the development, it has taken time. I'm not sure when though
00:16 gsilva In the beginning she tried to insert me on one of the teams but since I'm no power user, it is difficult to actually be helpful. Eventually I was more comfortable using GitHub and Launchpad, so I pretty much did the work over those two places
00:17 gsilva But what we need now is developers and such
00:17 gsilva That is interesting prologic :)
00:18 pdurbin gsilva: you might find some in #openhatch
00:19 gsilva I'll leave that job for melodie. I bet she prefers to have people that she knows around her :)
00:23 pdurbin so did she start Bento?
00:25 gsilva She was working with a partner back then. I don't know about him but I think he has been away
00:25 pdurbin ah
00:26 gsilva Someone called steve, but I'm pretty sure he hasn't been around

18:44 arthefact tu vas bien ?
18:44 melodie ça peut aller, merci
18:44 melodie et toi ?
18:45 coyotus soir melodie
18:47 gsilva oh, nice to see you around, melodie
18:47 gsilva With who did you say I should reach to deal with the blog thing?
18:48 gsilva Although I was wondering if we really need the blog
18:48 melodie hello gsilva
18:48 gsilva hi there
18:48 melodie I haven't said anything about it, just that if in need I can take care of that
18:49 gsilva Do we really need a blog? I mean, we have the page here at linuxvillage where we can do that
18:49 gsilva And jekyll is not that easy to use, at least for someone used to wordpress
18:49 gsilva Hence I asked if we actually need the blog at GitHub.io
18:52 melodie no we don't
18:52 melodie we can create a dedicated website (one day future if really needed), we can create a category in linuxvillage, or even a subsite
18:53 melodie such as "bento.linuxvillage.org", or a full category, which I might even be able to place in it's own main menu (this is to be checked though)
18:53 gsilva I see. Well, I may have merged the wrong files when I was adding Bento's from the FTP server, and that's why it doesn't work anymore
18:54 melodie ok
18:54 gsilva Unfortunately, since I am not used to Jekyll/GitHub pages, I'm not sure how to restore it back to normal. The only way I'm seeing is to re-do it again, while maintaining everything
18:54 gsilva But that can be really troublesome since the workaround to install jekyll and ruby on windows is ridiculous
18:54 melodie some here are people who know github fairly well so if you need their help you can ask, if the answer isn't the same day you can check the log online to see if an answer has been given
18:55 gsilva I'm okay to try and put it back online, but I noticed you don't write any post since November, even though there were some updates
18:55 melodie you can also ask at #crimsonfu where even more people may be able to help you
18:55 gsilva and I also noticed that that blog isn't that useful for GitHub and even less when we're trying to create our own page for Bento
18:55 gsilva you were talking to me about domains in the other day, right?
18:56 melodie I never wrote any post on github, I have a hard time understanding what does what there and even how to navigate inside
18:56 melodie yes I have been talking about domains
18:56 melodie bentolinux.something
18:58 gsilva melodie, GitHub is a collaborative platform for developers. Navigating the website can be pretty useless and that's why people use it offline, in your own PC
18:58 melodie ok
18:58 gsilva Just install git and use its shell to pull repositories. From there on, you just change files, add/remove them, add/remove folders and in the end
18:58 gsilva git add .
18:59 gsilva git commit -m 'justification'
18:59 gsilva git push
18:59 gsilva and everything is immediately stored onlien
18:59 melodie T
18:59 gsilva online*
18:59 melodie gsilva I am not available right now
18:59 gsilva oh, apologies. Okay, see you later then :)
19:01 melodie no problem, not that you could know
19:01 melodie I am partly available only, and not available to do and learn new things
19:02 melodie gsilva I am also about to change some of my local organisation in my computers these days, and I don't have currently the files and Bento related work in my current computer
19:03 melodie I will have everything in the same computer and version of system next, just not right away.
19:49 melodie gsilva for your information you suscribed me to a page which does not exist, I just had the notification by mail
20:12 gsilva where?
20:14 melodie on github
20:15 melodie that might have been long ago, seeing the time in the header of the mail
20:15 melodie "    bento-dev/bento-blog created by gsilvapt
20:15 melodie https://github.com/bento-dev/bento-blog"
20:15 melodie but I just received it a few minutes ago
20:36 gsilva yes, that was an experiment
20:37 gsilva I didn't link you to that, it was because you are on the devs team
20:39 melodie :D
20:39 melodie ok
20:40 melodie a newbie has offered me a gift on the linuxvillage forum : a link to a piece of music he likes, on youtube!
20:40 melodie http://forum.linuxvillage.org/index.php/topic,695.msg4025.html#msg4025
20:40 melodie first time someone I help offers me a piece of music! :D
20:41 melodie (I helped him solve a sound issue)
20:41 melodie XD
21:24 melodie well, that's rather cute
