# 3. marketing #
19:08:32 [nslater]: i plan to start ramping up our marketing activity

19:08:54 [nslater]: will be looking for help from the community
19:08:56 [nslater]: sent an email to dev 10 mins before the meeting
19:09:02 [nslater]: if you have any thoughts on this, please get involved
19:09:11 [nslater]: (i don't really know what im doing)
19:09:27 [jan____]: I have a blog post in my TBD, about "the new CouchDB release process",
but I don’t yet know if I get to finish it in time
19:09:40 [nslater]: #info effort underway to improve marketing activity
19:10:03 [nslater]: jan____: do you think it would have more impact before the 1.3.0 release?
19:10:11 [nslater]: my gut tells me it should be fine to do after
19:10:54 [jan____]: oh right, wouldn’t hurt to coincide
19:11:01 [nslater]: one of the things i want to do that i have mentioned in passing a few
times is doing weekly news items
19:11:09 [nslater]: these are an evolution of the ROUNDUP things i am doing at the moment
19:11:16 [nslater]: hoping to summarise important conversations on dev@ etc
19:11:19 [nslater]: my goal is to get these on the actual blog
19:11:26 [nslater]: i just need to evolve the format a bit more
19:11:31 [nslater]: jan____: sure
19:11:53 [nslater]: i don't have anything more to announce at this time
19:12:16 [nslater]: moving on

# 4. fauxton #
19:12:17 [nslater]: garren: over to you
19:12:31 [jan____]: nslater: I’m like +10000 on all that.
19:12:33 [nslater]: cool thx
19:12:41 [garren]: thanks, chewbranca added view functionality in. 
19:13:01 [garren]: We busy working on authentication at the moment. Making some good progress
on that. 
19:13:25 [nslater]: cool. have you seen many contributions from non-cloudant people since
moving to the apache repos?
19:13:39 [garren]: We looking to move some of the couchapp deployment to use grunt-couch so
if anyone interested on working on that. It should be relatively straight forward they are
welcome to.
19:13:41 [nslater]: i know ryan seemed keen to get involved
19:14:24 [garren]: yeah ryan_ramage has been helping out. We also will soon need anyone interested
to just to take it for a test spin.
19:14:31 [nslater]: garren: could we make it more clear perhaps that people are welcome to
get involved?
19:14:38 [nslater]: do we have a list of issues or whatever that people could get started
19:14:53 [ryan_ramage]: I am keen…I have had a busy week, but end of this week to get back
on track
19:14:55 [nslater]: (this is a genuine question - i don't know if we could be doing better
or not)
19:15:16 [garren]: nslater: yes there are some issues in jira.
19:15:23 [garren]: we probably should be adding more.
19:15:25 [jan____]: we could do with a blog post inviting webdevs to hack on futon
19:15:31 [jan____]: with a bit of a howto
19:15:46 [nslater]: blog post over ML post?
19:15:53 [drsm79]: nslater: there is a "here's how you contribute" plugin for fauxton -
19:16:02 [garren]: jan____: I agree, I think we need to make just a little more progress then
we can look at a blog post more help.
19:16:03 [jan____]: blog, and then use all PR channels
19:16:18 [nslater]: garren: cool - sounds good
19:16:19 [drsm79]: the idea is if you click a button that doesn't work it'll point you to
how to add that buttons functinoality
19:16:24 [chewbranca]: yeah that sounds like a good idea
19:16:27 [drsm79]: +1 on a blog
19:16:31 [jan____]: garren: that’s fine, I trust you know a good time when to publish this
19:17:11 [nslater]: any more on this or shall we move on?
19:17:11 [garren]: jan____: I think drsm79 chewbranca and I just want to add a couple more
things and get the tests in place.
19:17:21 [garren]: nothing from my side.
19:17:26 [drsm79]: nope
19:17:26 [nslater]: cool

# 5. rcouch #
19:17:40 [nslater]: benoitc: are you able to update or are you afk?
19:17:47 [nslater]: (i guess we'll find out in a minute or two if he doesn't respond)
19:18:01 [nslater]: ACTION adds "github PRs" to the topic list
19:18:03 [nslater]: ACTION adds "bigcouch" to the topic list
19:18:48 [nslater]: #info fauxton folks working on authentication at the moment
19:19:16 [nslater]: #info should be ready to invite contributions to fauxton soon - perhaps
with blog post
19:19:25 [nslater]: benoitc must be busy

# 6. github PRs #
19:19:32 [ryan_ramage]: just a quick thing for the feature branches for fauxton
19:19:32 [ryan_ramage]: maybe we can do the jira naming and have fauxton somewhere
19:19:32 [ryan_ramage]: I wanted to see garren auth thing pushed but the ci did not pick it
19:19:48 [nslater]: we have 13 outstanding PRs
19:20:16 [nslater]: i am going to start a weekly ROUNDUP and hope this number goes down
19:20:26 [nslater]: i am wondering if there's anything else we could be doing to bring it
19:20:39 [nslater]: or if another approach is better in the long-run
19:20:47 [nslater]: i am also wondering if there's any update on the integration work, jan____
19:21:18 [garren]: One of those PR's are mine. I think I should close it. And maybe bring
it up later on JIRA.
19:21:41 [jan____]: nslater: stuck on my end, sorry
19:21:55 [nslater]: jan____: no worries
19:22:46 [nslater]: #info github pr integration on hold

19:25:01 [davisp]: We'll be together in Boston next week so might find some time to finish
it off
19:25:18 [nslater_]: #info bigcouch merge also on hold (time commitments also)
19:25:46 [nslater_]: cool
19:26:01 [nslater_]: i think that's about it
19:26:08 [nslater_]: unless anyone has anything else
19:26:16 [nslater_]: might be able to wrap this up in 30 mins
19:26:23 [nslater_]: (i.e. now...)
19:26:33 [jan____]: DO IT
