2019-11-12 conda-forge core meeting¶
Your agenda items¶
Qt update strategies. Marius said he was going to talk with Microsoft at the Numfocus summit / Pydata NYC. We agreed that we’d get updates from Marius at this dev meeting.
Context: We should be building Qt more regularly. How do we achieve this? Provisioning Windows Azure VMs seems like the best path forward.
We’d need to make an Azure org (or whatever their term is) and then distribute credentials
We should consider talking to Microsoft about help doing this on Azure.
Marius will run point on these conversations this week at NumFocus Summit and PyData.
Get updates from Marius at next dev meeting.
(John/Eric) Aligning on GPU packages between CF and defaults
(Eric) Currently working internally and then with Josh to align on funding half time developer on distribution team for the rapids GPU needs.
Reach out to NumFocus to figure out legal ramifications of not including licenses in files.
Suggestion to changing linter to error when license is missing, can still merge with a failure.
Can include license file which mentions that license is unclear.
Advertise AMD GPU support.
AMD GPU runtime is in conda-forge now. Only need a recent Linux kernel in the user machine (And a supported AMD GPU of course)
write a note to NumFOCUS newsletter
Should conda-forge be ping-ing maintainers for projects who’s packages are being added to staged recipes?
eg. torchvision issue
Find the right wording to ping people without “bothering” them too much.
Invite to feedstock rather than in staged-recipes
What if maintainer says no, or asks to take the package down?
This is an email I got when one of my (Jonathan’s) packages was added to Fedora. The author might have contacts me only about the issues.
Greetings from a fellow NMR spectroscopist. In my role as a Fedora packager, I have built nmrglue for Fedora and Centos (or RHEL, Scientific linux, etc,). Users of these distributions can now install nmrglue using their respective package management tools.
I am writing to you to bring up two “issues”. …
Getting more contributors to conda-forge:
Should we do outchreachy with part of our funds? (GSoC but with our own funds. Higher contributor “conversion” rate than GSoC.)
Send stickers/t-shirts to reviewers on staged-recipes.
Vote for Staged reciepes reminder!
Python 3.8 migration
Bot underwent some refactoring, causing outages, outages have been fixed
Bot now supports bumping and not bumping build numbers
We’ve started pushing out on the backlog of pins (arrow-cpp, protobuf, occt)
Have access to a ppc64le machine for conda-forge through OSU OSL.
conda-forge is a supported FOSS project. (https://osuosl.org/services/powerdev/current-projects/)
If anybody needs access send your public SSH-key to Isuru
conda-forge is now self-hosting. Drop defaults?
How do we start getting traction on these?
* proposal is not long being worked on * could be solved by virtual packages
* 2 Nays, needs voting
* Is this necessary now that pinging staged-recipes works
cfep-08 Too Big To Fail¶
Check in on previous action items¶
Copy previous action items from last meeting agenda.
[ ] (Eric) regarding cfep-05, We should implement this in whatever way is as simple as possible for the conda-forge tooling ecosystem. If there is enough of sentiment that people want something more sophisticated, PRs welcome. Make this comment on cfep05
