Okapi Teleconference - Thursday Sep-01-2022 - Summary
And Thu/Fri midnight on Yoron island
Present: Yves, Kuro, Jim, Dale, Mihai.
1.44.0 has been released last week-end.
Many thanks to Mihai and all the contributors.
Yves to look at it:
Jim: People keep having that security error about the XML parser.
.. this should be fixed already.
==== Commit rights:
ACTION ITEM: Yves or Chase to give rights to Alec.
Done: Chase did it. Thanks you Chase.
===== Build problems on GitLab
Longhorn still having issues.
Mihai did try, but didn’t succeeded so far.
===== Segments.joinWithNext(int) changes code ids
K: Do we need a version that keeps the ID the same?
J: Yes, I think it’s needed.
.. so yes we can add that.
.. other changes in 1.44 to preserve as much as possible metadata.
.. maybe some more test/work needed there.
.. maybe the default should be to preserve.
K: is re-doing a balance markers the way to do it?
J: probably fine.
Jim will go through and make sure the methods are consistent.
K: can add test cases.
J: that will help
===== SWT-related test on MacOS
We said we would address this after the release.
Mihai: it’s off for the 1.44 release.
M: The question is do we want to run SWT.
.. test for UI should probably a separate suite
J: agree. It probably be an integration test
.. for example support for BSD added.
J: may have approved it too fast.
.. maybe need a better protocol to approve changes like this.
===== Other Business:
--- build changes ahead (a couple weeks from now)
M will send the link to the discussion as refresher
.. currently we have different builds for each platform.
--- Would be good to use the release instructions and check if all work.
M: will to the usual version updates.
J: think I updated ICU not long ago.
.. latest is71, so we are one behind.
.. new message format will be for 72. (tech-preview in a month or so)
Next call: Thursday Sep-15
