2018-04-17 conda-forge meeting¶
Zoom instructions: +How to connect to zoom
Debriefing on the AnacondaCon meeting (for those that weren’t there)
conda-smithy 3 and conda-build 3 move
issue the releases for conda-smithy 3 and conda-forge-pinning
review the list from packages that must be rebuilt with the new compilers
Look for packages that have toolchain in their deps
MichaelS to document and give demo on how to transition old recipes to new style
CJ reports ~763 packages that use “toolchain” in build deps. MichaelS to get that list from CJ, and will divide into two sets:
recipes that have already been done in AnacondaRecipes and should be PR’ed to Conda-forge
recipes that need modification for new compilers and remove python as mechanism for activating VC features
How do we want the bot to handle non-release releases (alpha/beta/dev/pre/etc.) https://github.com/regro/cf-scripts/issues/86 and https://github.com/conda-forge/conda-forge-enhancement-proposals/pull/3 and https://github.com/conda-forge/matplotlib-feedstock/pull/24#issuecomment-221496870
John suggested (on gitter) that we reach out to intel and NVIDIA to get copies of their toolchains and development libraries.
Chatting in the background with Intel about using their compilers on the CI services
intel fortran compiler to build SciPy (fortran only; VS used for C/C++)
defaults to visual studio compilers for all appropriate versions of python
mingw on py27/vs2008 for exceptional cases
Julia discussion around MKL, https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/issues/18374
pygdf - gpu only package that works on the nvidia GPU Jenkins stack
John: Get a pygdf-feedstock on conda-forge and ping the Nvidia folks
Adding people to cf/staged-recipes
~~Marius van Niekerk offered to help review on staged-recipes~~ Invited to staged recipes
Igor T. Ghisi (igortg) was also interested in helping
Adding people to core
Invite one or more from bioconda.
Bjorn (Filipe will invite)
Marcel Bargull, @mbargull has been a very involved conda contributor and may be interested.
Optionally building wheels for some packages. ( https://github.com/conda-forge/conda-smithy/issues/608 )
Making the agenda and notes public again.
John will see if we can make dropbox paper readable by the world
other options are to just post the notes somewhere public after the meeting
