<a name="l-17"></a><span class="tm">20:13:24</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> I don't. I think I should have had a closer look at the full irc log
<a name="l-18"></a><span class="tm">20:13:50</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> Ok, no problem. We'll move it to the pending items for next meeting.
<a name="l-19"></a><span class="tm">20:14:00</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> sure
<a name="l-20"></a><span class="tm">20:14:23</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> alan doesn't appear to be on our internal irc currently, i pinged elky on there though
<a name="l-21"></a><span class="tm">20:14:26</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> no resp
<a name="l-22"></a><span class="tm">20:14:53</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> the action item is from the topic about updating code guidelines and extend it to other than php
<a name="l-23"></a><span class="tm">20:15:07</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> ah, awesome, i thought that was a few meetings ago :P
<a name="l-24"></a><span class="tm">20:15:13</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span>
<a name="l-25"></a><span class="tm">20:15:17</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> it has php, js
<a name="l-26"></a><span class="tm">20:15:28</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> and i'm going to put up css with help of our designer
<a name="l-27"></a><span class="tm">20:15:33</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> css?
<a name="l-28"></a><span class="tm">20:15:39 </span><span class="nka">* aqualaptop</span> <span class="ac">has had a hard time with all the new themeing reviews</span>
<a name="l-29"></a><span class="tm">20:15:40</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> oh... i see
<a name="l-30"></a><span class="tm">20:15:55</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> there is also sql that could go up there?
<a name="l-31"></a><span class="tm">20:16:10</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> and maybe tpl, though we may change templating engine from smarty
<a name="l-32"></a><span class="tm">20:16:15</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> and xml perhaps?
<a name="l-33"></a><span class="tm">20:16:36</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> the js one is basically the same as the php one, if anyone can skim over it and let me know, or make changes
<a name="l-34"></a><span class="tm">20:16:45</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> the php one could also have an eye
<a name="l-35"></a><span class="tm">20:16:51</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> xml could do as well
<a name="l-36"></a><span class="tm">20:16:55</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> <span class="cmd">#link </span><span class="cmdline"></span>

<a name="l-39"></a><span class="tm">20:18:32</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> ok, so the only remaining item is Kristina's: "kristina, dajan and anzeljg to coordinate and extend anzeljg's spec to work out similarities and differences etc"
<a name="l-40"></a><span class="tm">20:18:52</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> I'm going to copy&amp;paste what she emailed me.
<a name="l-41"></a><span class="tm">20:19:11</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> But basically, Laurent had already added his thoughts about getting his
<a name="l-42"></a><span class="tm">20:19:11</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> oEmbed plugin into core at
<a name="l-43"></a><span class="tm">20:19:12</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span>
<a name="l-44"></a><span class="tm">20:19:42</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> At that time I had asked him to wait with the implementation until we
<a name="l-45"></a><span class="tm">20:19:49</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> had finished the refactoring of the external media block for the safe
<a name="l-46"></a><span class="tm">20:19:58</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> iframe admin interface as that changed a few things for 1.6 now. Once we
<a name="l-47"></a><span class="tm">20:20:04</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> were done I let him know but haven't received a response so far. When I
<a name="l-48"></a><span class="tm">20:20:09</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> saw dajan in Fribourg at the beginning of August, he said he would talk
<a name="l-49"></a><span class="tm">20:20:13</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> to Laurent and see if he could put it into the review system. The
<a name="l-50"></a><span class="tm">20:20:17</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> earliest integration would be for Mahara 1.7 now as the feature freeze
<a name="l-51"></a><span class="tm">20:20:21</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> had been at the beginning of August.
<a name="l-52"></a><span class="tm">20:20:31</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> In regard to Anyone can install it, but I would recommend not
<a name="l-53"></a><span class="tm">20:20:35</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> making it part of Mahara core as it relies on a third-party and the
<a name="l-54"></a><span class="tm">20:20:38</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> availability of their APIs that are not open (if I understand
<a name="l-55"></a><span class="tm">20:20:41</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> correctly). I could see a similar problem appearing as with the Google
<a name="l-56"></a><span class="tm">20:20:45</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> Apps block where we need to update constantly to keep up. Besides, from
<a name="l-57"></a><span class="tm">20:20:48</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> 1.6 on you can use the safeiframe admin interface to easily add
<a name="l-58"></a><span class="tm">20:20:52</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> additional iframes. And they don't just work in the external media block
<a name="l-59"></a><span class="tm">20:20:55</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> but also in journals and text boxes. :-)
<a name="l-60"></a><span class="tm">20:21:00</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> That doesn't have anything to do with shared hosting though. Don't know
<a name="l-61"></a><span class="tm">20:21:03</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> what anzeljg is referring to there.
<a name="l-62"></a><span class="tm">20:21:04</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> ..
<a name="l-63"></a><span class="tm">20:21:09</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> That's it!
<a name="l-64"></a><span class="tm">20:21:23</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> updated the guidelines page for other languages, just shells for now, but i'll put something in them
<a name="l-65"></a><span class="tm">20:21:29</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> wow, that is an email and a half
<a name="l-66"></a><span class="tm">20:21:29</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> Kristina talked to me and said that people that are on shared hosting
<a name="l-67"></a><span class="tm">20:21:53</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> could not use oembed and that it would be nice for them to have a chance to use
<a name="l-68"></a><span class="tm">20:22:08</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> ..
<a name="l-69"></a><span class="tm">20:23:31</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> So the idea would be to include oEmbed in core, as use (as a contributed plugin) for those that can't use oEmbed?
<a name="l-70"></a><span class="tm">20:23:58</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> YES, if i understood that correctly
<a name="l-71"></a><span class="tm">20:24:21</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> that looks about right
<a name="l-72"></a><span class="tm">20:24:35</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> and make use of safe iframes as well
<a name="l-73"></a><span class="tm">20:24:44</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> yes, of course.
<a name="l-74"></a><span class="tm">20:25:11</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> regarding Google Apps
<a name="l-75"></a><span class="tm">20:25:23</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> i think we agreed that we put them out of core
<a name="l-76"></a><span class="tm">20:25:43</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> also i'm working on integrating that as a part of cloud plugin
<a name="l-77"></a><span class="tm">20:25:56</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> yeh, that is on elky's todo list, make sure that it works with safe-iframes out of box or something
<a name="l-78"></a><span class="tm">20:25:59</span><span class="nk"> &lt;anzeljg&gt;</span> but Google support for embedding things, etc. SUCK!!!

<a name="l-116"></a><span class="tm">20:35:42</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> righto, we decided in our internal meeting the other day that we should have support for only some android versions
<a name="l-117"></a><span class="tm">20:35:59</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> we threw out the ballpark number of 2.2, which sounds reasonable
<a name="l-118"></a><span class="tm">20:36:23</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> yep, 2.1 and lower are a minority now.

<a name="l-136"></a><span class="tm">20:40:05</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> so we should upport 5.1.1
<a name="l-137"></a><span class="tm">20:40:44</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> there "current"
<a name="l-138"></a><span class="tm">20:40:53</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> that sound good to ppl?
<a name="l-139"></a><span class="tm">20:41:25</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> i know there are still quite a few iPhone 3G going around.
<a name="l-140"></a><span class="tm">20:41:54</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> Don't know how big is the difference between 4.2.1 and 5.1.1. browsers.
<a name="l-141"></a><span class="tm">20:42:26</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> But given that resources are limited, 5.1.1 looks like a compromise
<a name="l-142"></a><span class="tm">20:43:02</span><span class="nk"> &lt;sonn&gt;</span> good to me
<a name="l-143"></a><span class="tm">20:43:19</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> i'll check what android classes 2.2 as
<a name="l-144"></a><span class="tm">20:43:52</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> so 2.2 is current - 4
<a name="l-145"></a><span class="tm">20:44:09</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> may 10
<a name="l-146"></a><span class="tm">20:44:28</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> so 4.2.1 should be reasonable then?
<a name="l-147"></a><span class="tm">20:44:31</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> datewise
<a name="l-148"></a><span class="tm">20:44:42</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> can't see anything about "supported" with android
<a name="l-149"></a><span class="tm">20:45:00</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> it depends on the manufacturer a lot.
<a name="l-150"></a><span class="tm">20:45:17</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> or we could up the android one to 2.3?
<a name="l-151"></a><span class="tm">20:45:43</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> thouh i think there are a lot of rougue froyo's round
<a name="l-152"></a><span class="tm">20:46:01</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> shall we say 2.2 for android, and 4.2.1 for ios
<a name="l-153"></a><span class="tm">20:46:07</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> are we primarily targeting phones or tablets?
<a name="l-154"></a><span class="tm">20:46:08</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> that is just for 1.6 release
<a name="l-155"></a><span class="tm">20:46:15</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> both i believe
<a name="l-156"></a><span class="tm">20:46:48</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> cause it makes a (big) difference. Tablets are 3.x and up (except rare units)
<a name="l-157"></a><span class="tm">20:47:22</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> but phones have lots and lots of units in 2.3 (and probably 2.2)
<a name="l-158"></a><span class="tm">20:48:00</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> i would say have same compatability with both, and then change for 1.7
<a name="l-159"></a><span class="tm">20:48:21</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> probably just a "hunch" of what devices are out there
<a name="l-160"></a><span class="tm">20:48:25</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> But at the end, it boils down to differences in the shipped browsers. If they are bug-compatible, the os version doesn't matter
<a name="l-161"></a><span class="tm">20:48:58</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> yeh, llike i mean, i don't think we have a backwards supported version for chrome and ff? correct me if wrong
<a name="l-162"></a><span class="tm">20:49:03</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> though IE can diaf :D
<a name="l-163"></a><span class="tm">20:49:21</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> :-)
<a name="l-164"></a><span class="tm">20:49:45</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> but i'm pretty sure mahara won't work right on chrome and ff in the low low versions (ie the ones on current debian stable, which can't even open facebook :P)
<a name="l-165"></a><span class="tm">20:50:14</span><span class="nk"> &lt;iarenaza&gt;</span> so, do we agree on 2.2+ for android and 4.2.1+ for ios?
<a name="l-166"></a><span class="tm">20:50:25</span><span class="nk"> &lt;aqualaptop&gt;</span> this all came up because one of our testers found a bug in a 2.1 device iirc
