Discussion:
• Reviewboard is new to all of the students

  • No one has the environment set up yet

• Platforms:

  • Ubuntu: Lucid Lynx: Kevin, Lindsey, Mike
  • XP: Hongbin, Laila

• should consider working on Linux (or setting up a Linux VM)
• Git:

  • Only Kevin has used it

• Brendan has just transitioned to Mercurial (which is similar) at work.

  • Mike is still getting used to it
  • Distributed
  • easy to branch/fork

• Students are going to be split into multiple groups:

  • Extensions: Hongbin
  • Python API: Lindsey & Brendan or Lianne?
  • Web UI: Kevin
  • Installer: Laila

• People are going to be transitioned in by first doing some bug fixes
• SQLite probably better suited than MySQL
• Python 2.6, not 2.5
• Everyone is set up for the code sprint except for Christian & David

  • also, Christian = ChipX86, David = purple_cow on IRC

• Assignment: 5 reviews at http://reviews.reviewboard.org/dashboard/

  • make suggestions, ask questions

• No set naming conventions
• All Questions are good, some contributors and users know more about ReviewBoard nowadays (as it is large), so ask around for problem.
• Mike suggests blogging

  • Keeps you organized, makes records to reference later

• Weekly status reports would be appreciated
• Meetings on Weekends (Sunday)
• Christian and David will be able to answer questions by mailing list or IRC, most of the time
