[10:36:59] <seb_kuzminsky> i upgraded a machine from (or there abouts) to 2.5.3 last night and ran it for a few hours, the upgrade went flawlessly and it ran without any problems
[10:38:32] <skunkworks> yay
[10:38:53] <skunkworks> is 2.5.3 still supported on 8.04?
[10:39:14] <skunkworks> I assume the 2.5.x will be?
[10:40:54] <skunkworks> seb_kuzminsky: http://imagebin.org/index.php?mode=image&id=265488
[10:40:57] <skunkworks> another project ;)
[10:42:35] <seb_kuzminsky> skunkworks: yes, 2.5.3 runs on 8.04 rtai 32-bit
[10:42:39] <seb_kuzminsky> we dropped support for hardy (8.04) rtai 64-bit, but i dont think anyone used that, ever
[10:45:05] <skunkworks> ah
[10:48:31] cradek changed topic of #linuxcnc-devel to: LinuxCNC development -- http://linuxcnc.org/ | Latest release: 2.5.3
[10:48:46] <jepler> yay
[10:48:57] <skunkworks> oooh -congrats!
[10:49:48] <jepler> thanks to the release manager and the approximately 19 contributors since 2.5.2
[10:55:34] <skunkworks> jepler: is that the highest so far?
[10:55:43] <jepler> no idea
[10:56:09] <seb_kuzminsky> woooo!
[10:57:00] <seb_kuzminsky> skunkworks: that's a big machine!
[10:57:33] <jepler> 16 for v2.5.0..v2.5.1 and 15 for v2.5.1..v2.5.2.
[10:57:44] <jepler> during the v2.4.x series, the number was anywhere from 7 to 11 for bugfix releases
[10:57:52] <jepler> so yeah 18 is a big number
[10:58:52] <jepler> in v2.3 it was from 3 to 9; v2.2 4 to 8; v2.1 3 to 5; v2.0 2 to 5
[10:59:17] <cradek> that's a great trend to see
[10:59:26] <seb_kuzminsky> yeah, very cool
[11:01:04] <jepler> surprisingly to me we have more developers from v2.4.7..v2.5.0 than v2.5.3..origin/master
[11:01:07] <jepler> v2.0.5..v2.1.0: 13; v2.1.7..v2.2.0: 18; v2.2.8..v2.3.0: 18; v2.3.5..v2.4.0: 26; v2.4.7..v2.5.0: 41; v2.5.3..origin/master: 30;
[11:01:40] <cradek> JT-Shop: in what forum category should I put the announcement?
[11:02:04] <cradek> JT-Shop: er maybe the answer is none, since it shows up in the NEWS on the left
[11:02:32] <seb_kuzminsky> the 2.4..2.5 cycle was unusually long, maybe more people had time to contribute?
[11:02:46] <seb_kuzminsky> (or at least i percieved it as being very long, i haven't actually measured)
[11:03:38] <jepler> v2.0.5..v2.1.0: 1562; v2.1.7..v2.2.0: 1823; v2.2.8..v2.3.0: 2377; v2.3.5..v2.4.0: 1341; v2.4.7..v2.5.0: 2534; v2.5.3..origin/master: 2134;
[11:03:42] <jepler> total # commits
[11:05:05] <jepler> of course if we manage to merge any of these long-lived branches to master before branching for v2.6 that last number could grow substantially
[11:05:31] <jepler> incidentally this fellow is upset at people who use "v" in release tags, mostly because of how github forces you to operate in a certain way. http://thomas.goirand.fr/blog/?p=121
[11:09:01] <cradek> maybe by ranting, he can change all the cultural practices of all the projects. that sounds like a good approach to fixing this github-specific problem.
[11:09:51] <JT-Shop> cradek: Forum Announcements?
[11:10:16] <cradek> that says announcements about how to use the forum
[11:11:08] <JT-Shop> that doesn't seem to fit the forum exactly
[11:12:13] <cradek> ok I'll put it there, thanks
[11:12:29] <JT-Shop> I'll fix the description
[11:12:47] <cradek> also I misread it
[11:15:02] <JT-Shop> is is less likely to be misread now?
[11:15:31] <cradek> wonder what to do about files on sourceforge
[11:15:57] <JT-Shop> files?
[11:16:05] <cradek> er downloads
[11:17:21] <JT-Shop> is there a problem with soruceforge? sorry sometimes I miss a lot
[11:21:07] <cradek> the "newest" download available is from 2.4
[11:21:21] <jepler> I think we decided not to put downloads on sf anymore
[11:21:31] <cradek> we used to put tarballs there, which is a stupid thing to do in the age of public source control systems
[11:22:00] <cradek> yes but there's no indication on sf that we decided that, and how to find the modern releases
[11:22:43] <JT-Shop> I've not been to SF in so long I don't even know the URL
[11:22:55] <cradek> sf.net/projects/emc
[11:25:35] <JT-Shop> there is a link to linuxcnc.org on that page
[11:25:37] <skunkworks> can that be re-branded?
[11:26:12] <cradek> skunkworks: I don't know :-/
[11:26:42] <cradek> I wish we could stop having all of sourceforge other than the trackers and mailing lists
[11:31:36] <KimK> skunkworks: What's the new project? It looks big and blue.
[11:31:57] <skunkworks> acroloc as-22-40
[11:32:36] <KimK> This is a VMC? What's it like?
[11:33:41] <skunkworks> not really sure - have not seen it in person
[11:33:54] <skunkworks> there are some pictures on the other channel
[11:34:10] <skunkworks> vmc with tool changer
[11:36:04] <seb_kuzminsky> i just posted a link to the 2.5.3 announcement email (gmane) on google+
[11:50:02] <KimK> skunkworks: Oh, OK, thanks, I'll look in #linuxcncfor more pictures. While we're chatting, who have you been using lately for pretty good sized 3-phase brushless drives? You were using AMC, was it? (I'm not sure how big might be needed yet, one maybe 6 AWG x3?, and the rest 10 AWG x3 maybe?) This is from a 230VDC bus.)
[11:50:36] <KimK> s/#linuxcncfor/#linuxcnc for/
[12:48:59] <jepler> I double checked the sf admin interface and it is not possible to remove "files"
[13:14:01] <cradek> well f.
[16:09:30] <skunkworks> KimK: we are using amc drives - but in brushed mode (the are brushless drives though - hall sensor type)
[16:13:30] <JT-Shop> http://www.linuxcnc.org/index.php/english/forum/36-using-this-forum-questions/26804-how-do-i-change-my-login-password
[22:46:59] <skunkworks> JT-Shop: wonder if it is because of the ubuntuforums.org getting hacked..
[22:47:26] <skunkworks> http://ubuntuforums.org/announce.html
[22:47:50] <skunkworks> If you use the same password for a lot of things.. you would want to change them..
[22:48:20] <Tom_itx> i do. mine is password. i use it for all my bank accounts web logins etc
[22:50:23] <skunkworks> heh
[22:50:50] <skunkworks> too long.. 1234
[22:51:48] <Tom_itx> i did have a guy take a pic of something one time and his wallet was in the pic with his CC rather visible in the pic. we _did_ notify him of it though and promptly removed it :)
