Matti Picus (MP)
[x] intros for new folks on the call
Daniel Ching - Argonne, wanting to be part of staged-recipes team
Dave Clements -
just started at Anaconda (3.5 weeks ago)
OSS community manager
came from galaxy (has been involved in bioconda) where he was doing similar work
part of his job is to make sure the OSS parts of the conda ecosystem dont get lost in the shuffle within Anaconda
Edgar Margffoy - works at Quansight
working on qt compilation
joined Anaconda team last fall
on conda team (works with triaging, tracking bugs, making progress)
[x] (FF) budget
Whenever updated numbers land, please screenshare and show the budget.
Link is in Keybase (numfocus_spreadsheets.txt)
[x] open votes
[x] 2022 Outreachy / GSoC
Ask each week: Any interested parties in owning this?
If we want to do outreachy again we need a champion - Filipe can’t do it next year. Same with GSoC.
GSoC is free to us
Outreachy costs us $$ ($6500). $6k for student, $500 for admin
Some interest from Jannis - he and Filipe will chat about possibly handing off
Trying to figure out what policy for interns at Anaconda - some overlap maybe. Jannis wants to pick Filipe’s brain. Dave C. has also done this in the past at galaxy
From previous meeting(s)¶
Your new() agenda items¶
[x] (JRG/EM) Report
qtstatus and potential blocks.
split the recipe into a bunch of components. have
qt-mainthat has all the modules
builds time out after 6 hours - how to review and move forward with this?
MRB - post build logs so people can page through it and approve the merge.
How to compile aarch64 for all of this - qt work is being financed on quansight side by TDK
TDK would be willing to fund a machine to compile aarch64
MRB - do we have the server from oracle?
IF - Edgar, send Isuru your public ssh key and he’ll add you to access that aarch64 box
[x] JRG - meeting tomorrow on GPU stuff internally at Quansight. Will update team after
[x] (MRB) What is going on w/ Julia?
IF - just trying to figure out how to do Julia packages - we were lagging behind for the past couple of years. they have binary depenedency packages - we’d like julia to use the ones in our conda environments instead of theirs. some binary dependencies depend on julia’s dependencies.
[x] (UK) Removing
std=c++14from clang activation
(IF) Wait for Kai to comment and merge the PR
[x] (IF) skip: True recipes in staged-recipes
TODO: MRB don’t allow mirroring for cuquantum, cuquantum-python, cuda-python. any more?
[x] Let Maxiconda know that we can’t use their logo
CJ and Jaime to coordinate since TDK is a quansight client
(IF) m1 mac
Jaime - will check internally to see if there are m1 macs available
CBurr - will check with macstadium and see if they can add an m1 mac or swap the intel mac for m1 mac
Hold off for another 2-3 weeks until 7.3.8
(IF) New staged-recipes reviewers
Daniel Ching (carterbox)
(JK) Benjamin Bertrand (beenje) [happy to move this if needed]
Kolen Cheung (ickc)
(MRB) Bastian Zimmermann (@BastianZim)
(JL) libmamba solver work update
release (opt-in) happening end of Jan/mid of Feb depending on releaes prep
additional feedback logging and issue management being set up
Pushed to next meeting¶
*** ARE ANY OF THE BELOW STILL RELEVANT? ***
Skip next two CF meetings. Next meeting will be Jan 12, 2022
(CB) Issues from supporting CentOS 6: https://github.com/conda-forge/conda-forge.github.io/issues/1436
Non trivial solver errors when dependencies drop support for CentOS 6
Growing number of packages use minor features from the newer glibc
Move to using CentOS 7 based docker container by default
Stop building with CentOS 6 on staged-recipes
static libs should have a run constraint on the new sysroot
Document common errors (e.g. O_PATH)
Add an admin command to migrate to CentOS 7?
make an announcement
(MRB) keep ruby features
we’ve been removing them in the repodata patches ever since we started patching
it appears to be a purposeful addition to the patching, but a wrong one?
related CEP draft: https://github.com/conda/ceps/pull/11
JRG: Standardize Windows builds with Docker images (e.g. https://hub.docker.com/_/microsoft-windows-nanoserver)
Building conda-standalone on GitHub Actions vs Azure Pipelines results in different behaviour (
_sslerror on GHA’s version)
JRG: Quansight has now access to the GPU server. Next steps?
JL/JRG: libmamba in conda progress report
main feature PR: https://github.com/conda/conda/pull/10881
JL: conda-build 3.21.6/conda 4.11 kerfuffle
JL: conda-archive GitHub org, https://github.com/conda-archive
cfep-12 Removing packages that violate the terms of the source package
Stalled since May 26, 2020
Active debate about moving to “broken” vs deleting from conda-forge channel
Active vote, ends on 2020-03-11
What were the results of the vote?
Did we hear back from NumFOCUS? they did the legal seminar which is recorded
WV: Set up meet-and-greet call with homebrew team?
MRB: (repodata patches) make a cron job that runs show_diff.py and posts an issue + commit if it is non-empty
Self-hosting CI TODOs:
Change URL from drone.conda-forge.org. Proposals:
Set up monitoring
Quantstack is setting up grafana for the mirror
[x] (WV): TensorFlow-GPU ready to go, just need to decide if GPU should get prio over CPU?!
GPU gets prio
(MRB) master to main move (https://github.com/conda-forge/conda-forge.github.io/issues/1162)

who’s the POC for the various subteams?
Informal information: roles, day jobs, bios, the whole nine yards, why you’re here, etc.
Public or internal? I don’t really care either way. Anyone feel strongly one way or the other?
opt-in to public bios

some concern about “yet another place to keep stuff up to date”
[ ] (ED) document strategies for reproducible environments using conda-forge
[ ] (UK) Static libraries stuff
[ ] Add linting hints to builds to find them
[x] Recommend how to package them -> CFEP-18
