[08:10:09] * jepler takes a deep breath and pushes a button to update from joomla 3.4.x to 3.5.0 (and really wishes he had snapshots)
[08:11:38] <jepler> hmmm
[08:11:59] <jepler> well on the cloud service I can promote a backup to a full machine, that should furnish an easy way to test on a copy of the site
[08:16:14] * jepler twiddles his thumbs
[08:16:22] <jepler> [CREATING]
[08:19:30] <jepler> yay it seems fine
[08:24:08] <cradek> yay, that's great
[08:24:37] <cradek> so you have dumb snapshots (disk images aka backups)?
[09:36:01] <jepler> cradek: right
[11:36:51] <seb_kuzminsky> argh, my current pet project has been thwarted by license incompatibilities :-(
[11:37:02] <jepler> seb_kuzminsky: drat
[11:37:21] <jepler> too bad we're in the alternate reality where software is covered by copyright law in the first place
[11:37:52] <seb_kuzminsky> we should use cranial explosives to travel to the universe where it's not
[11:38:04] <jepler> I don't think that actually works
[11:40:19] <seb_kuzminsky> i wonder if i can serialize the internal data structures to a file on disk, then call the next-stage input on that
[11:40:27] <seb_kuzminsky> if i wish real hard, maybe the lawyers will miss it
[11:41:34] <jepler> you could pull a canonical and say that your interpretation of the license is that it is fine
[11:42:29] * jepler notes 20 days have gone by since the FSF said they'd make a statement soon about the GPL-CDDL situation
[11:42:33] <cradek> jepler: just wait. the fsf has announced that they plan to announce someday about that.
[11:42:38] <cradek> haha
[11:42:39] <jepler> jinks
[11:42:41] <cradek> so yeah
[11:43:03] <jepler> canonical doesn't care what the fsf have to say on the issue, since what they have said in the past is "Free software license incompatible with the GPL-2"
