[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Getting my install instructions together bit by bit
[Will, Ushahidi] @Robbie was just sending a mail with caveats, not sure where to drop them
[Will, Ushahidi] There is actually one I left out vagrant - at least on linux doesn't like /home/ dirs or encfyptfs - though those probably fall under a vagrant issue it might be nice to link to docs for third parties - may be overkill
[Will, Ushahidi] my caveats have caveats
[Will, Ushahidi] also docs look neat :)

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] @will you could edit directly on
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] and send a PR?
[Will, Ushahidi] wunderbar, will do
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] we already have a few caveats: 64bit host etc
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] so a few more is fine
[Will, Ushahidi] yeah that one is pretty key - I would suppose that future installs will be mostly geared toward cloud so it can become magically push button
[Will, Ushahidi] though it's pretty close, 3 steps for such an app is pretty push button as is
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] we could just default to turning NFS off on all platforms
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] but mention to turn it back on if needed
[Will, Ushahidi] if you're not deving it's probably a better approach actually the sync is only really for customisation or dev
[Will, Ushahidi] the UI shoudl support necessary/obvious customisation
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I'm hoping once @ZackHalloran finishes the ansible scripts for cloud we can reuse some of that to build a single vagrant box running both the API and the client..
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] so its really push button :)
[Will, Ushahidi] that would be like living in a wonderful future :)
[Will, Ushahidi] where do you want me to drop it? under linux setup or do you think we could go with false by default?
Aug 12 2015 01:30
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I think we just just go false by default
[Will, Ushahidi] groovy
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I'll add a note about encryptfs etc
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] is the encryptfs issue mounting from encryptfs into the box?
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] I'm just adding "Vagrant on linux has been known to have issues if you're box is running with an encryptfs partition. If possible clone the code outside of your encrypted partitions."

[Will, Ushahidi] I think this one is the issue, I'll find the docs ref
[Will, Ushahidi] mitchellh/vagrant#4987
Aug 12 2015 01:40
[Will, Ushahidi] I think above is clear this is page with encrypt howto
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] ah.. so is that only an issue with NFS on?
[Will, Ushahidi] yes precisely
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] oh right so I can skip that caveat and just disable nfs
[Will, Ushahidi] yeps
[Will, Ushahidi] it could be referenced for dev docs though

[Will, Ushahidi] Daily update:
Today I updated the date picker styling and pushed it for feedback
I'm working on the clean of the category editor
[Will, Ushahidi] I'll be testing the icon picker based on
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] Yesterday I refined the home page, completed the blog post design/layout, and started on the blog section. Today I'll finish the blog layout, work with seth on the blog, and complete the following pages: contact, 404, privacy, & solutions
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] you can view the layouts here:
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] today: Tested a couple of transifex clients with gulp and finally settled on one that works. Will be adding this to the build as well as finalizing UI changes for dynamic loading of translations tonight.
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] @will what is the icon picker for?
Aug 12 2015 15:05
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] hey @all -- I have a few things I HAVE to finish today in order of priority:
  1. v3 impact assessment structure/processs for nat
  2. inputing/adding detail on V3 talking points
  3. outline of "getting started" vids for V3 launch
[Will, Ushahidi] @sophie It's this ticket here:
[Jess Shorland, Ushahidi] i'm going to hunker down today and make sure these are all done and ready
[Seth Hall, Ushahidi] I am on .com now, trying to get over to D924 for V3.

[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] Daily update: fixed a lot of bugs yesterday. Wrote up install docs for vagrant.. other docs still need work.
Today: landing forgot password UI. Reviewing other code, and fixing more bugs.
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] finished a call and got passed this little person:
.. I have no idea what she's been eating..

[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] too cute :)
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] @Robbie There's a task on gantt about notifications that's due soon?
Aug 12 2015 21:01
[Robbie Mackay, Ushahidi] True. Let me just move that. Until release high priority bugs should take precedence.. but if you have time to get started on it that'd be awesome. I'll need to add notes to the task about whats required though
[Jason Mule, Ushahidi] ok.
[Sophie Shepherd, Ushahidi] @Robbie so cute!
