it was an error in replace_vars, there since the beginning
hmm.. we might still "fix" that
I suppose I should have checked it into both versions - my bad
at least mark the commits in the future ;)
hmmm- is there a CVS tag for the latest stable version?
err - the devel version after the latest stable version? ;)
didn't get that
well, I should have a checkout that tracks 2.0.x, but I don't necessarily want to have to explicitly change the tag every time there's a release
there are : 1). the 2.0.5 release tag 2). the 2_0 branch 3). the 2_1 branch 4) head
then get the 2_0 branch
ah - so I should be able to check out 3: 2.0 branch, 2.1 branch, head
ok - thanks
(I really should remember that kind of thing, or use the information often enough for it to stick ;) )

hmmm - got time to ponder a GPL-ish question?
sure, if you keep in mind that IANAL :)
me either ;)
here's the situation:
a friend and I may go into business making specific-purpose robots
we don't need cartesian positioning or G-code, so of course the interpreter and probablt motion controller aren't needed
I may want to write a separate motion controller for the robot - it'll be a radial arm device
go on :)
I'd be willing to relese that as GPL software if needed, but then again it may be better if I didn't
from what I know it needs to be GPL if it gets linked at some point
if it only interacts through NML or HAL then it doesn't
of course, I wouldn't want the specific-purpose code that tells the radial motion controller where to go to be GPL - that's the real meat of the application
though I think parts of HAL are LGPL so people can write proprietary drivers and such
I was also thinking that NML could actually be a good thing here, since there's another controller that runs on Windows
well.. good luck compiling rcslib :D
I have a copy somewhere (binary), but you probably want to add custom messages so that won't help
right - and get rid of all the EMC-specific ones ;)
essentially, the low level just has to go to some R/theta position, possibly avoiding predefined obstacles on the way
ha.. you can contribute that back :D
the non-EMC NML? ;)
that would be - um - useful
well, we'll be pondering the options in the next month or so. I think parts of EMC (specifically HAL and the realtime subsystem) could be very useful
short question.. should I leave the pointer to the live cd on the first page of linuxcnc.org ?
I think the issue will come down to ownership of the top level controller
I don't see why not
look first ;)
it's in a different place
* alex_joni decides he doesn't like it
ok - is there a specific problem you think it may cause? ...
well, having it above everything else may not be ideal ;)
I'll put it in the news on the left
yep - was just going to suggest that
actually, just above the langiage selsection, in a permanent frame
I wonder if we can make CVS tarballs in some automated way as well (though that may not be needed)
sure we can
but that strains the cvs server ;)
once per night, if there have been changes may not be a big deal
oh like that?
[00:22:52] <alex_joni> http://cvs.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/emc2/emc2.tar.gz?only_with_tag=v2_0_branch;tarball=1
yeah - not for every commit - that's unneeded
you can get it like this ;)
that link produces a tarball from the latest 2.0 branch
ok. if DH grabs the tarball and it's hosted there, CVS server strain shouldn't be an issue ;)
otoh, we don't want to release any different versions
and the released ones are on SF
plenty of bandwidth there
not that the DH account is lacking in that regard ;)
I'm surprised seeing people still download the emc1 release
369 downloads in the last 2 months
I bet they don't notice that the project has moved (even though it's pointed out there)
not CVS downloads
1443 downloads for emc2
[00:25:59] <alex_joni> https://sourceforge.net/project/stats/detail.php?group_id=6744&ugn=emc&type=prdownload&mode=60day&package_id=188858&release_id=0
these are tarballs from the Files section
are those emc2 .tar.gz files manually uploaded to SF?
interesting - it's pretty non-obvious that SF is no longer the place where active development takes place
is CVS still visible?
no - I don't see the links for CVS or browse CVS
but there's no other indication that the SF page is more or less a backup ...
it holds the mailing lists, tasks, bug and feature requests
all are actively used
only CVS is some place else, as described on linuxcnc.org and wiki.linuxcnc.org
sure. I guess that as long as the releases (and some news articles) are stuck on the SF page, it doesn't look as dead :)
I just finished doing that
heh -god job!
err - good job!
hey - have you started making plans for your trip to Galesburg next June? :)
how shall I put it?
not yet :D
not to worry - I'm sure most haven't, but as we know, it may take you longer ... ;)
actually I'm getting married in may
so that's gonna be a bit close :)
extended honeymoon ...
err - no, that would be the rest of the trip to Amerika :)
heh, would be the good start for the shortest marriage :D
honey, look at the big machines ..
ok, wiki done too
if it weren't during the school year, I think my wife would come along
of course, that's just a week or two before our tenth anniversary
jmkasunich: You misspelled --with-python= on at least one of the slots (you wrote --with-pytho)
jepler: thanks for spotting that, will fix
