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?

@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
put zero on master and then branch from there
account branch for PPA for example
then if PPA had versions it would breanch from account to things like account-1.2, account-1.2
i’d like to revisit this as branches
as that seems like that is really what they are
long lived branches
i guess the only difference with a typical branch is that they are never designed to merge upstream
but only get updates from upstream
James Tauber
@jtauber
it occurs to me that locally you could have, say, PPA, with two remotes set up: one the master of the PPA repo and one the PPA-branch of the pinax-project repo. That’s how you could basically keep them in sync

@jtauber are you going to comment on the gist or should one of us?
Thans jake!
James Tauber
@jtauber
i’ll respond
James Tauber
@jtauber
@paltman we should consider donating kaleo soon
Patrick Altman
@paltman
Yup
In conjunction with private beta project
James Tauber
@jtauber
yep
Patrick Altman
@paltman
Never mind
James Tauber
@jtauber
which can get waitinglist some love too
nevermind?
Patrick Altman
@paltman
That's waiting list
James Tauber
@jtauber
true
Patrick Altman
@paltman
Kaleo is still
James Tauber
@jtauber
but I think we should do that as well :-)
Patrick Altman
@paltman
invite only site
I want to do new starter projects as brmches or something
Else maintenance will never happen
James Tauber
@jtauber
yeah, we should definitely experiment with your idea
Patrick Altman
@paltman
Worthy of a good blog post if it works
Speaking of, want to get blog.pinaxproject launched soon
James Tauber
@jtauber
we also need to get better at posting updates to the mailing list(s) and twitter
i wonder if it can all be combined: blog post, post to mailing list, tweet
Patrick Altman
@paltman
Yeah!
I hoping for it to be a content production machine
James Tauber
@jtauber
i also need to start documentation at pinax/pinax
Patrick Altman
@paltman
So much to do
James Tauber
@jtauber
it was obvious talking to Matt Studley that people still just visit pinax/pinax thinking that’s Pinax
