WYLUG has not any specific plans for an activity,but if you meet any of us, be sure to give us a wave.
Due to some last minute hassle it seems that we will not be having a meeting this month and will be making up for it by having two next month.
This month we are meeting on the Last Wednesday of the Month instead of the last Thursaday. Same time, same place, look for a group of us round a laptop(s) in the Lord Darcy at ~7:30pm
Its that time of the month again when jolly good chaps and chapesses visit the Lord Darcy to discuss and exhibit GNU/Linux. We hope to solve eachothers problems about that sort of thing, sometimes just by saying “Its supposed to do that”, but not quite always. Look for a group of people talking animatedly round a laptop. Thats Thurs 23 FEB at 7~7:30ish
If you want your 15 minutes of fame, just post your report of January’s meeting on the wylug-discuss mailing list. If you have not already joined now is a fine time to do so. Just follow the link from our home page.
This month the monthly meeting is on TUESDAY of THIS WEEK. Come and join us in the Lord Darcy! be surprised about Linux ! Run a web server on you laptop ! The future here today!
This month’s meeting is on Tuesday 24th Jan, not the usual Thursday. The location is still the same, The Lord Darcy on Harrogate Road. If you have never used linux before, please come and try it out on one of our laptops. If you want to discuss things before hand, or between meetings, try our meetups pages, or the email mailing lists at the right hand side of this page. See you next week!
It was a good evening – some varied chat. Some around the i3 window
manager (http://i3wm.org/), which two folks actively run, and another
had tried at least. Some container/docker chatter, and some talk
around git usage, and commit message ‘style‘. David, with reference to
that last one, the kernel community have a good set of guidelines they
adhere to fairly strictly (that is, if your commit does not follow the
rules it pretty much isn’t getting merged into the codebase). A good
overview can be found in the kernel source tree docs:
Some of that is kernel-ish specific, and some possibly a little
outdated (iirc there is no mention of git send-email and maybe no git
format-patch either for instance), and the workflow is email based,
and many of us are possibly using services such as github which have a
bit of a different (PR based) workflow etc. – but, the essence of how
to create a good commit message and organise patches still applies.
And then on to the December meet – the last Thursday would be the 29th
December, and I think we agreed it was looking, shall we say,
‘non-optimal’ for turnout. Thus, right now it is not clear what we
will do in December, if anything. There may be an impromptu ‘get
together for a beer’, maybe in town. Open for ideas and thoughts
Time has come again for the monthly meeting in the Lord Darcy. Look for a bunch of us sitting round a Laptop(s). If you have anything planned, in the world of computers, post it on the mailing list or the meetups page.
