Standing Items

  • How many repos? ~1250

  • How many contributors? ~240


  • conda build 2.0

    *   cmake seems to be having issue
    • Patch? the packages which need to be rebuilt with conda build 2.0 before switching all feedstocks to 2.0

    • conda-build-setup should have whitelist to do something else?

    • Only need to rebuild packages with short prefixes, shouldn’t need to do anything special

    • Packages that need to be rebuilt conda forge/conda forge.github.io#171

  • conda & conda-env (conda-build?)

    *   conda-env is rolled into conda in recent versions, conda-env package now a placeholder
    • Need to pin older version of conda with conda-env<2.6 and newer version with conda-env > 2.6

    • Get rid of conda-env recipe?

    • Currently not building conda-build, need conda-build 2.0 to build

  • Travis CI VM changes

    *   Changed default OS X image to 10.11 with XCode 7.3
    • Fixed in conda-smithy by specifying what image to use

    • Travis will drop image at end of the month… we need a solution

    • Should look at new image and see if it meets our needs.

    • May need to set environment variable to continue to target 10.9, but may need to install own SDK

    • What versions of OS X are being used and what should we support? 10.9 good choice for minimum?

    • Enhancement proposal to outline how we manage changes to what we support (3.4, numpy 1.10, etc)

    • jpeg8 to jpeg9

    • Discuss on GitHub issue until 21st then decide.

    • Ray will try to get Anaconda.org usage stats.

  • Updates from Michael on GitLab based CI
