Meeting Notes

  • quickopen on the command line
    • Dion: this is fine as long as it's the same number of keystrokes, because quickopen is optimized for its use case
    • Kevin: see the cmd-L (goto line) command. That is as quick to use as a goto line popup. It should be possible to make quickopen via command line work with just as few keystrokes
    • Julian: can make selecting project faster (just type /projectname)
  • Julian: Do we want to use more GUI or Command line for things in general?
    • Kevin: command line often, GUI where it makes sense (diff tool, for example... Julian mentioned vcs clone as another)
  • automatic adding of matching parens
    • Gordon has submitted a patch (see bug 505478)
    • Dion: we should spend some time getting all of the use cases down
    • It could be a plugin, possibly until we are happy enough with the behavior to move it into the core
    • Kevin will open a bug on it
    • We could take the simple version with settings
    • Fancy behavior requires a good version of context
  • Julian asked if syntax highlighters were plugins.
    • They are not yet. The main thing is that the simple syntax highlighter requires them to be loaded synchronously. Loading of the language plugins needs to be async
    • Julian may take a look at this
  • Julian asked about Friday pulling patches in
    • Kevin reiterated the reasons for a specified window
      • Time for availability in IRC for Ben
      • predictable time for feedback/merging of patches
      • we want to provide feedback or integrate patches before they get old
    • Julian would like a Tuesday window
      • Kevin thinks that one more window during the week is a good idea
    • just send a message to bespin-core for a pull request
