### hendrik * The package conflict I had trouble with is not present in ascii, beowulf, or chimaera. I seem to have had an old version of one of the packages lying around and that didn't have conflicts registered against it. * there turns out to be wicd-related packages in Debian experimental, with dependencies on python3 instead of python:any. Will continue to investigate. Will have to learn how to install and uninstall packages form experimental on Devuan. * (gl) sources.list info for experimental is here: https://www.devuan.org/os/packages * (gl) perhaps this is a solution for wicd in Chimaera? https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?pid=31119#p3111 * (Xenguy) Don't quote me, but isn't the most recent git activity in that repo like 2 years ago or something? (Or maybe I'm confusing it with something else). * (gl) UPDATE! Since jaromil sent me an email this morning, I asked him if he knows someone who could upgrade wicd to python3 and suggested that Devuan fund the project. We certainly have the resources to be able to do that. * (fsr) apt -t experimental install wicd (and any other parts of it) And you'll find that it mostly does not work. I got wicd-curses to run and connect to ethernet. Then I went back to the beowulf version of wicd for a few days, and then I removed it when I found that the Preferences screen would not open. * (amesser) I would be up to do this - no need to fund me :-) * (gl) Fantastic!
### golinux * Continued discussion of name choice for Devuan 6.0 to follow Daedalus. Beer's comments on last week's pad convinced us that Enterprise would offer an excellent opportunity to revisit Devuan's first steps all those years ago. The subject is also rife with material for "interesting" commentary. Would be quite a lot of fun to play with . . .
## New Business * (hendrik) The link to the FAQ in he Getting Started section on the pad does not work for me. Unless, of course, it's intended to be empty. * (gl) I'm lost. link please. * (onefang) Like me you probably closed that Getting Started section of the pad long ago. It doesn't come back unless you clear the cookie. * (gl) Ahhh . . . that would be a default cryptpad setting. Has nothing to do with Devuan. I clicked once and never saw it again . . .
### amesser * Need to update to update *apt* in ceres/unstable to same version as in Debian * Turned out that apt development was split after 2.2.1 it two independent branches: * "2.2.y" for bullseye * "main" ( towards 2.3.8) for unstable * I have made "suites/unstable" branch on gitea to follow the 2.2.y one in order to get updates for chimaera through Jenkins "unstable" builds * Nowadays "suites/unstable" branch would need to follow "main" branch of Debian again * a simple merge of "main" into "suites/unstable" not possible since branches developed into two directions * my plan: * let "suites/chimaera-proposed-updates" follow the "2.2.y" from Debian * replace existing "suites/unstable" with branch based on "main" from Debian * I can not replace "suites/unstable" on gitea since its the "default branch" and I don't have permission to temporarily change this.
### Xenguy * New HTTP and HTTPS mirror from Taiwan added to https://www.devuan.org/get-devuan.html (new entries at bottom of each section). * New/local Chimaera git branch for updated web site pages will soon be ready to merge, and publish to Dev for review. Once done, publishing new content to the web site will be effectively frozen until Chimaera is officially released. This appears to be the main method by which review on new pages can be conducted by multiple persons. * The only other method that might work would be for me to push the local branch to the Git Store, and those who wish to review could pull that, and then preview the changed Chimaera pages locally. * Question: If the new financial report shows up, is it acceptable to delay publication until Chimaera is released? *(gl) Only the yearly reports are published on www * For Charlie Watts, RIP: https://yewtu.be/CL614PU-EQE
## New Actions * To do before chimaera release? * fix desktop-base (desktop background gets lost) * http://bugs.devuan.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=598 * Chimaera documentation * Move `Release Notes` and `README` files from `installer-iso` repo to `documentation` repo (i.e. decision is to work on all documentation in the `documentation` repo, then publish finished versions elsewhere as necessary). * See also required CSS files. * Make sure to document the move, complete with links, in the associated commit messages
### mason * Checking the new Chimaera BIND to verify that logging isn't broken * noted report that suggests Debian might have moved it to journalctl-only - will verify
