17:18 masak hackathon in November land!
17:18 moritz_ woow
17:18 masak we'll be at it for a bit less than two hours, starting now
17:18 masak my plans for the evening"
17:18 masak s/"/:/
17:18 masak 1. get the MediaWiki formatting tests going
17:18 masak 2. take a look at that NCI SQL stuff
17:19 masak 3. explore CSS layouts a bit
17:24 masak EOP
17:25 * moritz_ has done 2. some time ago
17:25 masak moritz_: any conclusions?
17:26 moritz_ masak: 1) fragile (for exampled uesd to segfault on NULL values)
17:26 moritz_ 2) I only tested selects, no updates
17:26 moritz_ 3) no placeholders => danger of SQL injection
17:27 moritz_ 4) the result objects aren't arrays, so if you want to seriously work with them, you'd have to build a wrapper
17:27 moritz_ 5) not all that slow ;)
17:27 moritz_ 6) fun!
17:27 masak :)
17:27 masak sounds good enough for me
17:27 masak we're here to exercise things early so that they get better
17:27 moritz_ aye
17:28 masak but first, the MediaWiki formatting tests!
17:28 moritz_ which branch are they on?
17:28 masak none, yet
17:28 masak planning to put them on markup
17:28 moritz_ ah
17:29 masak if I want the markup branch to look exactly like the master branch does right now, how would I do it?
17:29 masak delete the markup branch and branch it off from the master branch again?
17:29 masak or do a checkout of each branch and copy -R from master to markup?
17:30 masak viklund: do you know?
17:30 moritz_ delete + recreate seems logical to me
17:30 masak oki
17:30 moritz_ then you don't have weird changes in your git-log
17:30 * masak tries
17:30 masak reasonable
17:31 masak it's not bad practice to re-use the name of a dead branch, is it?
17:31 moritz_ dunno
17:31 moritz_ best practices are overrated ;)
17:32 masak aye, but bad practices are often under-avoided :)
17:33 moritz_ ;)
17:33 viklund git-merge
17:33 masak viklund: ok...
17:34 masak viklund: it worked! awesome!
17:34 masak what did I just do?
17:35 masak incredible!
17:35 * masak goes to look at the network graph for november
18:06 * viklund is permuting uses
18:09 masak that's sad.
18:09 moritz_ permuting uses to work around bugs?
18:09 masak aye
18:09 masak the lows that we have to stoop to...
18:10 masak myself, I'm inspecting MediaWiki PHP code...
18:10 * moritz_ pities masak more than viklund ;)
18:10 masak :)
18:10 masak well, as PHP code, MediaWiki's not bad, actually
18:11 masak but it still makes me want to cry
