### golinux * The correct link styling has been worked out on pkginfo query results, * Trying to get the key from Beer to transfer devuan.net to dyne now that jaromil has been located and informed. * Report from fsr: * Here's the "missing icons on upgrade" fix: https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=15085 * It seems that an Xfce4 config file needs to be deleted and that it will recreate itself properly after logout and back in. I have added to the release notes to alert those upgrading Xfce. * Bikeshedding won the day at the Saturday meet to get www prepared for the Chimaera release. Not my problem anymore
### plasma41 * https://dilbert.com/strip/2017-01-02 * I did some reading and now I have at least a modicum of understanding of the syntax of CSS. I still need to do much more reading on the subject, but I can at least now review very _very_ small changes with some degree of confidence. * (gl) css knowledge is irrelevantd to the tasks currently needed for chimaera. The only way to learn css is to create a website from scratch in a text editor. Create a page. Look at it. Go back to css and fiddle. Look again. Eyes are the most important part of this process. Think forest not leaves, grasshopper . . .
## New Actions * Modify website processes and procedures documentation to reflect reality instead of how stuff worked a few years ago. * (gl) Each www site is a unique combination of html,css and other elements. I suspect that fragmenting those elements according to purpose (which breaks the cohesiveness of the individual website as a unit) is a decision made by those who have never designed a website from the ground up. Have fun devolving things to satisfy an abstract sense of order that will ultimately make working on those sites more difficult. * (hendrik) This documentation change looks like something to do after the chimaera release, though it *may* be worthwhile to make notes about it while we're putting the release together -- just so that we'll remember what's up when we finally get around to doing this. * (plasma41) Yes, I don't disagree that this should happen only after Chimaera stuff is done. * (Beer) Improve `tellpackage` documentation * (Beer) Start a discussion on `devuan.unetresgrossebite.com` -> `bugs.devuan.org` * (hendrik) bug number 21. * (gl) The above domain name is quite descriptive of the ascendant dynamic. Soooo . . . Was anything useful towards updating chimaera-related info on the website or preparing the necessary release documentation done since the last meet? Do any of the actions above address that? That is the elephant in the room. Talk is cheap and venting and bureaucratic shuffling and leaping towards the future does not get the work necessary to release chimaera done in the present. It may give comfort and the appearance of action but in reality accomplishes nothing useful that is needed NOW. Time to get into gear and get it done!
