Hello! So how many proposals were submitted?
18:42
nmdis1999
I'd like to know that as well :)
18:42
Bertl_oO
we got a total of 17 proposals, where 3 are spam
18:43
nmdis1999
How are you btw ! @TofuLynx
18:43
nmdis1999
Oh..lesser than previous year ...
18:43
supragya
spam?
18:43
Bertl_oO
nmdis1999: yes, but the quality is way better than last year
18:44
Bertl_oO
supragya: unrelated proposals, some only two paragraphs long
18:44
nmdis1999
Quality > Quantity , agreed :)
18:44
Bertl_oO
yes, I'm quite happy with the proposals we got this year
18:45
supragya
so Bertl_oO, you looked over all the proposals now?
18:45
Bertl_oO
yes, I did, but not in depth (yet)
18:48
supragya
[quality is way better than last year] <- 30 proposals last year, did you not have challenges to solve last year?
18:49
supragya
that solves the problem to some extent I guess
18:49
nmdis1999
It was fun as well, to solve challenges :D
18:51
Bertl_oO
yes, we didn't have any challenges last year, which was a mistake :)
18:51
Bertl_oO
but hey, it was our first time after all ...
18:53
nmdis1999
But I guess there are still proposals from people who haven't completed the challenge (or did they?) as far as I know, 3 people in VHDL did challenge and 5 in C/C++
18:53
supragya
I was wondering the need to fork our repos! Any specific reasons Bertl_oO ?
18:54
supragya
nmdis1999, these are challenges: https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema?page=2
18:54
Bertl_oO
well, it was the simplest way to make a snapshot
18:54
supragya
https://github.com/apertus-open-source-cinema?page=1 this too
18:55
nmdis1999
ok , cool.
18:56
supragya
how does it work Bertl_oO, the slot system? As far as I know, org first selects some proposals and gives slot count request to google. Then google gives it back as they seem fit!
18:57
Bertl_oO
yes, we are going to select proposals/people we want to mentor and from that we suggest a number of slots to google
18:57
Bertl_oO
google checks the applications and organisations and assigns a number of slots to them
18:57
Bertl_oO
we then fill the slots with remaining applicants
18:58
supragya
remaining applicants?
18:58
Bertl_oO
well, those google left during their selection/verification
18:59
supragya
so google rejects too?
18:59
Bertl_oO
yes, but usually not based on proposals
18:59
supragya
then?
18:59
TofuLynx

19:00
nmdis1999
I think many people get rejected because of their enrollment verification as well
19:01
Bertl_oO
yes, if the verification fails, the student is not allowed for GSoC
19:01
supragya
that's a weird reason, but will do XD.
19:02
nmdis1999
No, it is clearly stated in their portal (because people can fake being student you know) I did carefully read that xD
19:02
Bertl_oO
well done! :)

supragya
during GSoC, a student can work on one project at max. Is the case same with mentors?
19:24
Bertl_oO
the common case is one student per mentor but two or more are possible
19:27
supragya
finally, is there something wrong with IRC these days? All leave all of a sudden then join again. Also there is a mechanism in place I guess where BAndiT1983 -> BAndiT1983|Away. Same with se6astian. Seems like that is not working too! Is Bertl_zZ going to work?
19:29
Bertl_oO
it happens every now and then that the connection to the server is lost or terminated
19:29
Bertl_oO
this leads to folks leaving/joining but usually it is a sign of a bad connection or bad client
19:31
Bertl_oO
sometimes IRC servers go down or become unreachable, this leads to a lot of people suddenly losing connection
19:31
Bertl_oO
(the IRC network is quite large)
19:33
Bertl_oO
the |away is automated, but the _oO and _zZ I use is not
19:33
supragya
BAndiT1983 -> BAndiT1983|Away - this should still work in that case
19:33
supragya
or am I wrong?
19:33
supragya
so your computer is always online?
19:33
Bertl_oO
when the client connection is gone, the user disappears (after some time)
19:34
Bertl_oO
yes, I'm always online ;)
19:35
supragya
|away is automated <- how? any links I should read? this is apertus specific if I recall what BAndiT told me
19:36
Bertl_oO
they use an IRC bouncer which does this

Bertl_oO: bouncer seems to be dead, can't connect threough hexchat

now it works, many thanks
19:46
Bertl_oO
you're welcome!
19:46
supragya
so there is a ZNC server on your end?
19:47
Bertl_oO
something similar, yes
19:48
supragya
does it die often? (last few days suggest this question)
19:48
Bertl_oO
normally not
19:51
BAndiT1983
sometimes it's als freenode itself which disconnects
