Hi

We're going to run some online patch review sessions. The first one is on *Thursday, 7th March* and you can sign-up here:

  https://libreplanet.org/wiki/Group:Guix/PatchReviewSessions2024

The background is that Guix has many fantastic contributions that are waiting to be reviewed and added to the archive. We have the QA system that does test builds, but each patch also needs to be evaluated and checked. Anyone can review patches, and reviews help to confirm that a patch is in good shape to be added to the archive.

Doing patch reviews is also a great way to learn about Guix, the different packages and methods involved in packaging. To encourage new reviewers to step forward, and to have some fun we're going to run on-line patch review sessions. These will be informal, probably chaotic - but fun - with the aim that we learn as a group how to review packages.

Each session will be hour 1:30 and they are rotating through the week, so there should be plenty of opportunities to come along. We're using the Guix London's Meet-up and the sessions run on Jitsi. 

We'll try and talk a bit about how to do reviews, and then we'll try and do some reviews, learning and asking questions together!

Hope to see you there!

Steve / Futurile

Hoping to make it for some of these, thanks for doing it!

One small point is if people could include the scheduled times in UTC in
addition to "arbitrary" timezones. It is much easier to compare against
UTC (especially because it does not do daylight savings time) if you
don't happen to be in one of the specified timezones. :)

live well,

I believe this ical file represents the event accurately (for March 7),
but I’m not the organizer.

Best regards,

I've put the UTC time into the Wiki page. The Meet-up page should send you a calendar invite which will be correct for your timezone. And, yeah daylight saving and meeting co-ordination is just *hard*! Look forward to seeing you at some of the sessions!

Will the Jitsi link be shared somewhere (here, irc, ...) for those of us who are
not able to sign up on the page?  I am getting this error:

Since meetup.com is a commercial, third-party service, I assume there is not
anything you can do about that, so I am curious if there are any alternatives
how to get into the review session.

Thank you and have a nice day,
Tomas Volf

Well, I did use Mobilizon for the Friday dinner for Guix Days - which 
though lacking some features is FOSS and Fediverse tech.
https://mobilizon.nl/events/ee570f76-1898-43ff-88f0-86f18608ff2d

It does permit email (as opposed to registration) to confirm - though I 
noticed that only 1 or 2 people actually provided any information for me 
to discern them.
... I guess it meant the system reduced the risk of spam signups but 
simultaneously didnt enforce accountability to an organiser.

On a legal basis Id assert that the specific instance being based in the 
Netherlands would be advantageous than wherever Meetup queries; routes; 
and caches.
It is run by some random volunteer, with all the carnets of such trust 
domains.


In any case, Im going to try to participate in these events, I reckon it 
would be a good compensation for there not being a regular Guix meetup 
in Belgium.

Kind regards,



Jonathan

HI, just to clear up the timezone issue a bit - I think the ical file
higher up is *not* correct:

* I think the meeting is at 18:00 UTC, which is the same as 18:00 GMT,
which is the same (on March 7th) as 18:00 London time
* I think the libreplanet page says 18:00 BST, which is 17:00 UTC/GMT
and is not an inhabited time zone on March 7th (the switch to BST is
on 31 March). I think the ical file reflects 17:00 UTC.

I'm mostly sending this message to make sure *I'm* not
misunderstanding, as I don't want to miss it :-)
Meetup also says 18:00 GMT.

Dan

Could the Jitsi link also be shared on the mailing list and/or noted on
the libreplanet wiki?

Anything we need to have prepared by Thursday?
I imagine a ubuntu vm running with vanilla guix installed is installed?

you should have a means of running Guix, and so that your store gets
populated with recent basic things, I would also suggest to run a
"guix pull". It can be a virtual machine, a full Guix system, or simply
a "foreign" distribution with Guix as a package manager.
(I am not sure what you mean by "is installed"; I do not think Steve
plans to install a machine shared between the participants, please
bring your own!)

Then you should clone the git repository as the basis to apply patches,
as explained here:
   https://guix.gnu.org/en/manual/devel/en/html_node/Contributing.html
I think reading the first two subsections 22.1 and 22.2 is enough to
get started.

Notice that building Guix takes a rather long time; on my oldish laptop
with two cores, about half an hour. So this should be done before.

Looking forward to tomorrow,

Andreas

I would just like to point out that the link to the jitsi meeting is not on the
wiki page and was not shared here neither (for those of us who have issues with
meetup.com).  I think it was said before the link would be shared somewhere, so
please take this as a reminder (since it is tomorrow already).

Have a nice day,
