@paltman
i’m on the only one there so was discussing it here
James Tauber
@jtauber
can you add me?
Patrick Altman
@paltman
crap, i accidentally closed it
James Tauber
@jtauber
closed what?
Patrick Altman
@paltman
ugh
James Tauber
@jtauber
oh you just mean you removed it from the most recent list under “All Conversations”?
Patrick Altman
@paltman
i see a new chat
and go to click it
but it's close to the leave room
and then i have to go to the repo and click on the badge
James Tauber
@jtauber
it’s just hide from the list, not close
that’s kind of what I find confusing
Patrick Altman
@paltman
no i was clicking on the leave icon
James Tauber
@jtauber
oh
i find the hide thing annoying
Patrick Altman
@paltman
seems like such a silly thing to have so horribly wrong
James Tauber
@jtauber
I want a list of all my rooms, not a list of which ones I was most recently in :-)
and I don’t need to see all my orgs, most of whom don’t use gitter

Patrick Altman
@paltman
so i’d like to figure out if we can either 1) use mkdocs.org with RTD, or 2) host our own docs at urls like pinaxproject.com/pinax-teams/
@jtauber @brosner ^
either way i;d love to have our docs under their own theme
for branding
but of course that does communicate the whole “pinax app” instead of “just another django app”:
James Tauber
@jtauber
yeah, that seems a low priority compared to other things
Patrick Altman
@paltman
i do think it’s worth putting on the front matter of our docs and our README a blurb about what pinax is and that this app stands on its own (or with these dependancies)
i think @jtauber already mentioned this README idea
James Tauber
@jtauber
i’ve already got a PR in
Patrick Altman
@paltman
i only mention because as I have been doing a lot of foundation work on each app to update it to pinax-starter-app structure and/or doing donations from Eldarion to Pinax, part of that involves docs
and should i contineu doing Sphinx
granted i am not really writing comprehensive docs
James Tauber
@jtauber
Steven Wilcox thought the preamble was a great idea as he got confused by the pinax-* naming
Patrick Altman
@paltman
but rather just putting some stubs
yeah, it’s worth having a common preamble
James Tauber
@jtauber
i suggested one for pinax-blog
Patrick Altman
@paltman
cool
we can put it on all of them
James Tauber
@jtauber
if you think it’s okay, we can put it everywhere
I agree we need to mention dependencies, though, as some will, for example, assume DUA
and I think it’s much better to just say it assumes DUA than “it has to be a 100% Pinax project!” (which doesn’t make sense but people think that way)
Patrick Altman
@paltman
i was thinking for DUA we could make it optional
most dependency on DUA is for LoginRequiredMixin or decorator
and i think we can use DUA if it exists but roll back to contrib.admin if not
should the preamble include a brief bit about what Pinax is?
James Tauber
@jtauber
@paltman I’d love some system that automatically diffs starter projects that are based on one another so we remember to make upstream or downstream updates
ages ago I suggested whether actually making starter projects forks of each other (or at least branches) would enable us to use Git/Github for that but that seemed to complicate things
a better approach might just be something for modeling upstream relationship and providing easy diffing
but it seems tantalisingly like Git could be used for it :-)
Patrick Altman
@paltman
yeah
it might be worth experimenting with a pinax-project repo
