[00:01:01] <jt-plasma> the only logical answer is they are near the push broom as I cannot find it either.
[00:10:31] <jt-plasma> so much for that theory... I found the ferrules but the broom is still MIA
[00:44:11] <SWPadnos> the idea is that you always find the thing you aren't looking for, so looking for the brom was the answer
[00:44:18] <SWPadnos> broom
[00:47:30] <jt-plasma> I still haven't found the broom LOL
[00:57:05] <CIA-81> EMC: 03jepler 07master * rf6432d2ca07a 10/ (119 files in 11 dirs): move hostmot2 firmwares to the hostmot2-firmware project
[00:57:15] <jepler> To ssh://git.linuxcnc.org/git/emc2.git
[00:57:18] <jepler> * [new branch] v2.4_branch -> v2.4_branch
[00:57:51] <jepler> It's my pleasure to announce the opening of the v2.4_branch, and the reopening of master for new features.
[01:01:56] <PCW_> PCW_ is now known as PCW
[01:02:06] <jt-plasma> WEEE! a new branch!
[01:03:38] <jt-plasma> jepler: do you know if the docs can be edited from 8.04 lyx for both 2.4 and dev?
[01:05:00] <jepler> jt-plasma: the same lyx you were using yesterday to edit master is the same one you should use today for 2.4 and master
[01:05:16] <jt-plasma> ok, thanks
[01:05:17] <jepler> jt-plasma: we might evaluate whether to use the 10.04 lyx during development towards 2.5, though.
[01:05:28] <jt-plasma> ok, just let me know
[01:08:42] <CIA-81> EMC: 03jepler 07master * r68a3312b5a44 10/ (VERSION debian/changelog): bump master to start the development of new features in the 2.5 series
[01:11:35] <jepler> documentation for 2.4: http://linuxcnc.org/docs/2.4/html/
[01:11:42] <jepler> docs/devel will track master, as expected
[01:11:49] <jepler> I'll work on the debian/changelog later tonight
[01:13:08] <cradek> yay!!
[01:15:07] <jt-plasma> should I put that link on the docs page at linuxcnc.org as the soon to be released version?
[01:18:48] <jt-plasma> done :)
[01:19:41] <jt-plasma> * jt-plasma wanders inside to see about some chow, that piece of toast for breakfast is getting thin
[01:21:44] <skunkworks> Nice!
[01:21:57] <jepler> jt-plasma: I'd hold off linking it more prominently for now
[01:34:26] <jepler> now, was there anything else I needed to tell the mailing list about?
[02:20:06] <jepler> git log --oneline --since="April 20, 2009" | wc -l
[02:20:07] <jepler> 1071
[02:20:17] <jepler> ^^ number of commits I have to at least glance at to make the debian/changelog
[02:21:35] <SWPadnos> I'm glad I'm not helping for another month or two :)
[02:23:37] <cradek> wow that's a big number.
[02:24:45] <cradek> our project - it is vibrant
[02:26:59] <jepler> who can tell me whether NURBS are useful enough to be left in?
[02:27:21] <jepler> iirc it had problems like violating constraints
[02:28:17] <cradek> I don't think they're useful in their current state.
[02:28:27] <cradek> (but, I'm not sure taking them out is smart at this late date)
[02:31:51] <jepler> hm, how much detail to put in debian/changelog?
[02:35:22] <cradek> do you think we've gotten it wrong previously?
[02:42:50] <jepler> it's just so tempting to write one line for each commit
[02:43:04] <jepler> I won't go quite that far
[02:43:09] <jepler> bbl
[15:29:44] <cradek> jepler: is there any value to tagging the 2.4 branch point, so we know where to start our feature branches?
[15:30:12] <cradek> I guess we can always use merge-base to find it
