A question about localized meetings: You said depending on the interest you are planning to organize localized meetings in the future? How will that work?

One of the many things we'll be discussing during this retreat.
(one of the many, many things :D)

To clairfy:  Localized talkshoe chats.  Not physical meetups (not that those are out of the realm of possibility).

How they'll work I don't know yet.  Ideally a team member would organize it for their area and we'd announce it.

A interesing idea. However not every countery would have a team member in their area. You could create a "Team Research Member" who organzies groups and takes down ideas and Suggestions to bring to the Main Team Group.

Sounds like a great idea.  :)

I like this feature:
Quote from: akabugeyesPropose that we change the price of SMF. Let's make it -$0.05 (negative) instead of $0.00.
then we get money :D

Hope you all have a fun time there!

ok.. wow.. I havent been on this board for a long time.. still trying to be patient for a SMFChess version I can use with the beta so i can move my forum up to version 2.0

anyhow..

here is my point..

I got my forum upgraded by doing partial restores of the database from a copy of my live one.. and moving it to a NEW location.

seriously.. lets just think this through LOGICALLY without all this discussion about the internal workings.

If your forum DOESNT upgrade with the upgrade installer package included in the beta.. is it reasonable to assume that your forum is modded to a level that you PROBABLY want to fix before upgrading to a NEW version?

Thats my problem.. my forum RUNS fine.. but.. the error log is FILLED with all kinds of php errors (the old 1.4 version currently running). Do I WANT to upgrade that.. or do I want to get as CLEAN a copy of the database over to the new version so that LONG term my forum will run better and be more reliable?

I am thinking the latter.. clean database.. no mods starting fresh.. etc..

That way isnt being discussed here.. your hacking the install script to work with a heavily modded forum that sounds like mine..

take a different approach.. selective restore of the internal parts of the database.. get only what you need to start it back up.. and go from there.. clean and fresh.. for longer term stability. If a mod was good.. reinstall it in the 2.0 version after you get your 2.0 CLEAN version going.

thats MY 2 cents.

What are the "official" dates for the MotM, by the way?
I can't seem to find the information anywhere...

Because all SMF development seems to have been stopped yesterday, and since there was a lot of activity even on Christmas day, I guess it will last until the end of the MotM... ;)
I will not make any deals with you. I've resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered.

Well they're away now, see:
Quote from: top and bottom of the page here
A significant portion of the team is currently away at the MotM. As such, the support response time will be longer than normal.
We thank you for your understanding.

We'll be gone for the rest of the week.  There actually has been a lot of development going on the last few days.  Just not the normal commit based ones.  Nothing like sitting in a room with some people and talking things out.

Or more like theres nothing like sitting in a room with everyone's laptop open showing each other what they're working on....so much so, we've had to limit laptop times, and enforce bedtimes... j/k (1/2 way at least :P ) But seriously, there's been a TON of collaboration. Not just within groups, but throughout the whole team....

I'm guessing nothing will be told about what took place in these collaborations?

I imagine we'll put some things together and present.  But probably not while we're still here :P

Could you guys post pictures of the entire team probably all standing together or sitting at the table including all the names? It'd be nice to finally put a face to the names :)
