<muttley>
hi guys...is it possible do video playback on LTSP client
05:10
<zirconiumks>
yes it is
05:11
muttley, just do it like you would normally do it
05:13
<muttley>
i can ... but it's very slowly!
05:14
<zirconiumks>
muttley, of course, technically its streaming over a network
05:14
muttley, there is no way out of it, as long as I know
05:14
<muttley>
LTSP server is: athlon xp 2800+ thin client is: pentium 350 Mhz lan: 100Mbit/s
05:16
are you sure is it streaming?
05:17
with streming pc client decode video...
05:18
<zirconiumks>
as I understand, the client uses all server resources
05:18
so all the data has to be transferred over the network and displayed
05:18
<knipwim>
when you stream over ssh, the client has to decode the video stream
05:19
you could check the bottleneck while running top on client and server while streaming the video

05:25
<muttley>
yes
05:25
<alkisg_work>
Does your client support xv? What resolution is the video? What video card on the client?
05:25zirconiumks has quit IRC

<muttley>
on my client have a matrox on agp but i dont' know which
05:28
on server ati radeon 7000
05:28
<alkisg_work>
Run xvinfo on the client to see if it supports xv
05:30
<muttley>
now i can't test...i'm at work and my thin client is at home
05:31
however on thin client i have 1360x766
05:32
<alkisg_work>
If you try to play video full screen, and the client doesn't support xv, the network bandwidth won't be enough for 1366x768x24bppx20fps...
05:32
<muttley>
xvinfo must run on reduced thin client os?
05:32
<alkisg_work>
No, from a normal terminal
05:33
If you see "no adaptors present" then its not supported
05:33
<muttley>
i have istalled ltsp packege from ubuntu repository
05:34
it's a "out of box" version
05:34Shingoshi has joined #ltsp
05:34
<alkisg_work>
ok...
05:35Shingoshi has quit IRC
05:35
<muttley>
excuseme, but i have to run "xvinfo" on ltsp server (this i can test now on ssh)
05:36
<alkisg_work>
No, you have to run it on the client
05:36
When you return to your home, boot a client, logon normally, open a gnome-terminal, and run xvinfo.
05:36
xvinfo asks the xserver, and the xserver runs on your client - so it actually queries the capabilities of your matrox card.

i have try video playback always as thin client on my notebook (vaio ducal core with geforce 8400 M), and it's better of my 350 Mhz but not enough for see a film
05:41
<alkisg_work>
The nv driver also doesn't support xv, so you would have to install the proprietary nvidia drivers on the chroot to properly see video with geforce...
05:45
<muttley>
waooo...thank you
05:46
tomorrow i post xvinfo result....

Hi! I'm trying to add local devices support in our instalation of LTSP but... I can't with this :-( : Anybody can help me? We are using Edubuntu, I can mount one USB device in a thin client computer and I've fuse "insmod"ed in the kernel. Thanks!

hi
08:20
<_UsUrPeR_>
hello
08:20
<johnny>
so.. dnsmasq stopped sending out option 12 (hostname) and i'm trying to figure out why
08:21
all my clients are being called ltsp now.. which is screwing my setup up :(
08:21
<_UsUrPeR_>
ugh. What distro is that?
08:21nicros_away has quit IRC
08:23RobertLaptop has quit IRC
08:23
<johnny>
ubuntu
08:23
i'm not sure how long the system was up from the last time i worked.. that is the problem
08:25
<russell_nash>
Hi, I have recently tried Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope owing to a Gnome bug that prevented ltsp working in hardy and Intrepid. The old bug seems to have gone, but I have a new one. here is the output of my .xsession-errors file. http://pastebin.com/m5dff0087 It is something to do with pulseaudio, I believe. I would appreciate it if anybody could shed some light on this.
08:31
<_UsUrPeR_>
johnny: what works w/dnsmasq still?
08:35
<johnny>
hmm?
08:35
russell_nash, don't think many people have tried with jaunty
08:36
_UsUrPeR_, it seems to send everything but hostname
08:37
<_UsUrPeR_>
russell_nash: I am interested in knowing what bug was preventing your use of 8.04 and 8.10.
08:39
<johnny>
i'm not sure what would stop it from sending hostname .. my config looks fine
08:40
<russell_nash>
yes, I am sure you are right, I would normally avoid pre release versions, but after 6 months devoid of working ltsp I thought I would try. the bug, as far as I can tell, was related to this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ltsp/+bug/232532
08:40Gadi has joined #ltsp
08:42
<russell_nash>
what happened originally was that when I logged into the client on Hardy was that I just got a mouse pointer, blank screen then gnome settings daemon error. I spent some time on here and someone tried very hard to help me, checking my settings etc., seems it was a gnome bug.
08:43
<Gadi>
russell_nash: it was actually mostly our fault
08:43
not gnome's
08:44
<russell_nash>
oh right, how so?
08:44
<Gadi>
we used to not terminate sessions properly, until we discovered that we needed to run Xsession like this:
08:45primeministerp has quit IRC
08:45
<Gadi>
/etc/X11/Xsession < /dev/null >/dev/null
08:45
that seemed to clean things up a great deal
08:45
because processes would not dissociate
08:46
I would recommend you use intrepid, and if you want latest upstream, include:
08:46
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/stgraber/ppa/ubuntu intrepid main
08:46
in your sources.list
08:46
(server and client)
08:46
then, in addition to the above bug fix, you can set:
08:46
LDM_LIMIT_ONE_SESSION=True
08:47
which will kill off old user sessions when they log in
08:47
if the kids simply pull the plug and don't log out, you may have lingering procs, but only until sshd realizes the connection is gone and then it should clean itself up
08:49
<alkisg>
The only process I frequently see not being killed in Intrepid is "/usr/lib/evolution/evolution-data-server-2.26"...

<russell_nash>
thanks for the help, I tried Intrepid but it resulted in the same thing, but that was about 2 months go now. I will note down the info you gave me, but I think I will wait here with intrepid, I am bit tired of all the reinstalls, swapping between hardy, intrepid, gutsy (wont install, doesn't like my new graphics card) and back to hardy, now jaunty. However, thanks for the help. :-)
08:51
<Gadi>
well, what is the jaunty issue?
08:51
is it the same?
08:51rjune has joined #ltsp
08:51
<johnny>
Gadi, does lts.conf [mac] mac address care about upper or lowercase letters?
08:51
<Gadi>
johnny: I don't think so
08:52
but not 100%

johnny: I know for sure all caps works
08:54
<russell_nash>
the jaunty issue is that on login the mouse pointer whizzes round as though it is trying to load something, but it never stops, unable to load it the problem is here http://pastebin.com/m5dff0087
08:54
<johnny>
russell_nash, we'll kick the maintainers butt into action :)
08:54
<Gadi>
johnny: actually, looks like both work
08:54
<johnny>
russell_nash, jk.. but he tried to get the most code in
08:54
working or not
08:55
before the freeze
08:55
so watch for falling rocks and all
08:55
the bugs are on purpose :)
08:56
<Gadi>
russell_nash: try disabling gnome's mouse and keyboard modules in gnome session
08:56
you can do it in gconf-editor
08:57
ah: /apps/gnome-settings-daemon/plugins/mouse
08:58
and: /apps/gnome-settings-daemon/plugins/keyboard
08:58
and see if that helps
08:59
<ogra>
russell_nash, your paste doesnt show any problem at all, thats a std. xsession-errors entry as you have it on all jaunty systems
08:59rjune_ has joined #ltsp
09:00
<russell_nash>
You mean that isn't an error, that is supposed to be in there?
09:00
I will try the gconf settings you suggest
09:01
<ogra>
right, http://paste.ubuntu.com/128768/ is the start of .xsession-errors on my laptop ...
09:01
(same on a desktop here)
09:02
thats std. babbling of pulseaudio
09:02
<russell_nash>
ok,thanks, that is useful to know, so I have no errors, but it still doesn't work :-)
09:03
I will fire up my client now that I have changed the gconf settings, I will report back later

09:23
<russell_nash>
one thing that I missed on my .xsession-errors post earlier was that it says this at the bottom of it: Failure: Module initalization failed
09:27
<Gadi>
russell_nash: you should pastebot your entire .xsession-errors file
09:28
!pastebot
09:28
<ltspbot>
Gadi: "pastebot" is The LTSP pastebot is at http://pastebot.ltsp.org. Please paste all text longer than a line or two to the pastebot, as it helps to reduce traffic in the channel. A link to the content will be pasted in the channel.
09:28
<Gadi>
otherwise, we'll just keep guessing all day
09:28
:)
09:28
also, make sure that:
09:29
1. The same user is not logged in elsewhere (even on the server)
09:29
<russell_nash>
here it is http://pastebin.com/m3ff93a0b
09:29
<Gadi>
2. Before you log in, do a : pkill -9 -u <username>
09:29
and make sure there are no processes
09:30
thats the entire file?
09:30
<russell_nash>
yes, entire

hmm, on the server, can you: sudo mv /var/log/Xorg.0.log /var/log/Xorg.0.log.bak
09:31
and log in a gain?

10:00
<stgraber>
vagrantc: about Debian's ltspfs, when was it tagged ? I'll need the change I commited yesterday for ubuntu otherwise it'll break with our udev.
10:01ajohnson has joined #ltsp
10:01
<vagrantc>
stgraber: it's your 0.5.9 tarball, so if you've got other changes planned ... probably no sense in syncing then
10:01
stgraber: but ithink what's in unstable now would be syncable with what you have in ubuntu now
10:02
<stgraber>
I'll tag a new one now to include the fix for our udev
10:02
indeed but what we currently have in Ubuntu is broken :)
10:02
<ogra>
stgraber, oh, you found the issue ?
10:04
<stgraber>
ogra: probably, I still have an issue with gnome not showing the mount points in /media but that's not jaunty specific and more likely to be linked to the way I install ubuntu for my customers
10:04
ogra: basically ltspfs failed when exporting udev's environment as it contained a space in a variable value
10:04
<ogra>
stgraber, talk to pitti, afaik some of the fuse handling changed, i'm not sure he made sure it still works with remote connections

hi guys, what is dm-snapshot? can it be used for ltsp images?

10:21
<cyberorg>
stgraber, i keep getting "this client is not configured" dialog box in the client when booting, how do i get rid of it?
10:22
this is from cluster thing
10:25
<stgraber>
cyberorg: just create a node and move your clients into it
10:25
cyberorg: the message appear if they are in the root node
10:25
<vagrantc>
cyberorg: so, i'm applying your nomad patch without the ~/.ltspvars bit ... that'll at least reduce your diff
10:26
<cyberorg>
vagrantc, ok :)
10:26* ogra wonders if you cant just export the ~/.ltspvars contents on session startup so you dont need the file
10:27
<ogra>
(like we do with PULSE_SERVER etc)
10:27staffencasa has joined #ltsp
10:27
<cyberorg>
stgraber, cluster packages would be part of default ltsp images, so not every one would have clustered servers, can we just disable the dialog without removing packages or creating a cluster?
10:28
ogra, no, with rdesktop exported variables don't work
10:28chupacabra has joined #ltsp
10:29
<vagrantc>
cyberorg: although the '-s' argument should probably be "-s", ldm.xsession, ldm.session " "
10:30
<cyberorg>
vagrantc, that shows up like this: desktop -z -f -u geeko -p XXXXXX -s /usr/bin/startkde 10.0.0.254
10:30
<stgraber>
cyberorg: if you don't have ltsp-cluster you won't have the message
10:30
cyberorg: at least it's how it's supposed to work, no idea how your stuff works though
10:30
<vagrantc>
cyberorg: yes, but the Xsession file should show up first
10:31
<cyberorg>
ah right, not sure if -s takes two commands
10:31
<vagrantc>
cyberorg: it should do rdesktop -z -f -u foo -p XXXX -s "/etc/X11/Xsession startkde" 10.0.0.254
10:31
otherwise we'll re-implement a bug i was very happy to have fixed :)
10:32
<cyberorg>
let me try and see if rdesktop is happy with it :)
10:32
<vagrantc>
you'll probably have to quote it or some such
10:34
<cyberorg>
tried -s "/etc/X11/xdm/Xsession startkde" 10.0.0.254, it didnt complain, but the bug we have is that it just starts default session
10:38
there is a new bug opened for dropping aufs and using dm-snapshot for opensuse 11.2, so not sure how it will impact us :(
10:38
<vagrantc>
i think fedora at least tried to use dm-snapshot with ltsp
10:39
<cyberorg>
did it work?
10:40* vagrantc doesn't use fedora
10:40
<cyberorg>
we might have to use it soon if aufs goes
10:41
ogra, what is ubuntu planning, keeping aufs?
10:41
<vagrantc>
cyberorg: what's happening to aufs?
10:41* vagrantc can't wait for yaufs
10:41
<cyberorg>
vagrantc, it seems it is a lot of work to keep it building/working with newer kernels
10:41
:)
10:42
that would be dm-snapshot
10:42
<laga>
cyberorg: what about aufs2? the aufs guy seems rather responsive
10:43
<cyberorg>
laga, https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=483444
10:43
<vagrantc>
over the years i've seen translucencyfs, overlayfs, ovlfs, unionfs and aufs ... and they all eventually fail to keep up with the kernel...
10:43
<dberkholz>
that's the nice thing about fuse ...
10:44
<vagrantc>
yeah, seem slike a fuse based one might actually last a while
10:44
funionfs?
10:47shrek has quit IRC
10:48
<cyberorg>
stgraber, how does client know if ltsp-cluster is there or not?
10:48
if the cluster packages are installed on the server does it think cluster is present?
10:49
<stgraber>
cyberorg: it checks for /etc/ltsp/getltscfg-cluster.conf
10:49
in the chroot
10:49
<cyberorg>
ok, so i just have to remove that, got it

<johnny>
do people understand why the unionfs kernel stuff is still such an issue?
11:17
and why it is hard to keep up?
11:18
from my own readings.. the real problem.. is that folks like al viro want to fix this in the kernel vfs itself.. and not some thing on top of it
11:18
union mounts i think is what they called it
11:19
which is why none of these solutions aufs,unionfs.. are actually in the mainline kernel
11:24
<vagrantc>
cyberorg: the nomad patch works, although session selection doesn't seem to do anything for me either.
11:25
<cyberorg>
vagrantc, will let you know when i hear something on the bug i've filed
11:26
thanks for adding the patch :)
11:26
<vagrantc>
cyberorg: i think i'll leave the session selection bit out as well, since it doesn't actually seem to work...
11:27
<cyberorg>
vagrantc, leaving it in does not harm either, at least it will work when xrdp starts working without us having to repatch ldm?
11:29
<vagrantc>
cyberorg: i'll actually have to figure out quoted arguments to re-write it, though :)
11:29
<cyberorg>
ok :)

vagrantc, any suggestion how we can handle .ltspvars?
11:35
we can look at doing a tmpfs mount and write variable there and clean up after session ends
11:35
<vagrantc>
you really get into issues with persistant sessions and that stuff
11:35
cyberorg: if you could pass variables with the -s argument ...
11:36
though it's already obviously broken
11:37
<cyberorg>
we run this script to find out if the session is remote then only .ltspfvars are read: http://pastebin.com/d5b5df62d
11:37
passing variables at rdesktop commandline would not be possible, i checked with our nomad developer
11:41
<Gadi>
cyberorg: is there no environment variable within the session from which to get the client IP?
11:41Selveste1 has joined #ltsp
11:42
<cyberorg>
Gadi, unfortunately none
11:42
<Gadi>
I guess the nomad developers never intend to have a useful log
11:42
:)
11:42
<cyberorg>
not in logs, not in xprop, nowhere
11:42
<Gadi>
most admns would like to know from where the server is accessed
11:44
how does console kit know?
11:45
*it* must have checked something to know that it is not local
11:45
<cyberorg>
Gadi, see the script ^^
11:45
<Gadi>
I did
11:46
you simply ask console kit
11:46
so, how does console kit know?
11:46
<cyberorg>
just this isLocal
11:46
<Gadi>
right

it sets isLocal
11:46
so how did it know how to set it?

Gadi, technically the session is running locally on Xdmx server, client just connects to that X server
11:49
<Gadi>
so, perhaps xdmx knows from where you connected
11:52

cyberorg: ok, i added support for Xsession, presuming it someday gets fixed in xrdp

Hey Im in a dilemma here, cause my boss wants all the desktops to have net-boot with Ubuntu cause that what he knows to, but all the server is debian ore windows 2k3 servers :S and I can't get ltsp to run an ubuntu client on the debian server - it shoot be enough to type - "ltsp-build-client --dist XXXX --mirror XXXXXXXXX right ?"
11:57
on a ubuntu host
11:57
and then move the image to the debian server
11:57
<johnny>
no.. cuz then you'll just get debian
11:57
all the apps run on the server
11:58
if you want ubuntu ltsp.. you need an ubuntu server
11:58
unless you're trying to do fatclients or something..
11:59
<Selveste1>
so its not possible to make an "fat-client" running ubuntu on a debian server then ?
11:59
<johnny>
oh.. that might be true.. but you'd need the fat client script
11:59
that isn't included in ltsp yet
11:59
your terminals will need lots of ram atho
11:59
like between 256 and 512
12:00
<Selveste1>
ahh, all the client have 1gb of ram, ore more
12:00
<johnny>
ah
12:00
then yes.. you could just get the fat client script.. build it on ubuntu and copy it over
12:00
and then make debian serve up the image
12:01
<Selveste1>
Otherwise I just have to install a ubuntu server in an Xen on the debian server - cause some of the clients might have to be thin also :) thanx allot :) I will look into install a ubuntu server then :)
12:02
<alkisg>
stgraber, a regression in Jaunty: I installed ltsp-server normally with the alternate CD but /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/default/locale wasn't created (as it was with 8.10) so ldm wasn't translated. When I manually copied the file and updated the image everything was OK. (Should I file a bug/send you a mail or something to remind you?)
12:02
<cyberorg>
vagrantc, hopefully it will be fixed soon :)
12:20
<alkisg>
What's the correct way to get the ldm "Preferences" button to be localized? I used to do `apt-get install language-pack-gnome-el` in the chroot, but in Jaunty it installs gtk20.mo in "locale-langpack" instead of "locale" and it doesn't work...

Selveste1: i've got debian ltsp thin clients connecting to an ubuntu server running under xen at freegeek. works pretty good. but if you want fat clients, you'll need to generate the image on an ubuntu server, like johnny suggested
12:26Lns has joined #ltsp
12:39
<Selveste1>
vagrantc - Thanx for that input :) I will install an Ubuntu server in Xen then, for the thin clients, and make the fatclient image on an (edu)ubuntu server - haven't decided yet :P
12:40
<stgraber>
alkisg: hmm, I'll have a look at it, does it work if you create it with --locale ?

is there ltsp5 for gentoo?
13:04
<dberkholz>
i thought we masked and removed that
13:04
<johnny>
yes , it's in an overlay
13:04
dberkholz, not removed yet i think
13:04
<dberkholz>
guess just masked.
13:04* johnny goes to add iso-code dep to ldm
13:04

hi, good morning
13:36
so... anybody using LTSP5 with IPv6?
13:36
i am thinking of making the switch at my site
13:36
<trusiad>
Hi everyone
13:39
<epsas>
and - has there been any movement/activity on using clients as nodes in a distributed/parallel computing environment?
13:40
<Lumiere>
epsas: you shouldn't need IPv6... LTSP works best on a private network anyways (all internet traffic comes from the server)
13:41
<johnny>
need is one thing...
13:41
some people actually would like to use ipv6.. for other reasons
13:41
<Lumiere>
johnny: such as?
13:41
<johnny>
such as .. it is awesome... :)
13:41
read the spec :>)
13:41
<trusiad>
I am wondering about using ltsp in a school network
13:42
but they're using remote profiles on another samba server
13:42
would that be possible ?
13:42
<johnny>
probably
13:42
<trusiad>
one server with the remote accounts, and another with ltsp ?
13:43
<johnny>
sure
13:43
i just don't know how to personally do it..
13:43
<trusiad>
do you know any good docs ?
13:43
<Lumiere>
trusiad: most people I know about run the ltsp clients on a private network
13:43
<johnny>
people here probably do
13:43
<Lumiere>
so the ltsp server would be on the samba server network
13:43
<johnny>
i don't think that has anything to do with it
13:43
<Lumiere>
and all the clients are on a small switch that connects to ltsp
13:43
<evilx>
johnny, what is that layover url?
13:43
<Lumiere>
trusiad: then you can ignore the samba server entirely
13:44
unless you need the mounts
13:44
<johnny>
evilx, you just need to fllow layman instructions and then layman -a ltsp
13:44
<Lumiere>
then you just need to figure out how to use smbmount effectively
13:44
<trusiad>
no need for it anymore ?
13:44
<johnny>
evilx, but.. i'd suggest waiting til tomorrow
13:44
<trusiad>
I mean the samba server ?
13:44
<johnny>
evilx, there's a problem in the ldm script atm, that i cannot push a fix for atm..
13:44
<trusiad>
with the 300+ accounts ?
13:45
<evilx>
but, dont I need to know the source url?
13:45
<johnny>
no.. just layman -a ltsp
13:45
<trusiad>
the ting is there would be two kind of clients
13:45
<evilx>
doesnt exist
13:45
<johnny>
after following layman setup instructions
13:45
<trusiad>
the thing
13:45chupacabra has quit IRC
13:45
<trusiad>
windows 'normal' clients and thin clients
13:45
non windows
13:46
what a mess
13:46
I make sense ?
13:48
<evilx>
johnny, I have the source in make.conf, but still wont layman -a ltsp
13:48
<Selveste1>
Is it possible to make an ltsp-cluster ore ltsp-loadbalance ? cause I'm at a school there have to buy allot of new workstations, ore convert those the have to thin/fat clients, and I'm not sure if the server can cope with all 300+ workstations starting at the same time
13:48
<evilx>
because that make.conf doesnt exist, bah

Lumiere - I want ipv6 for security
13:51
<evilx>
I fixed that issue, but working on something new
13:51litlebuda has joined #ltsp
13:51
<epsas>
and for ease of maintenance
13:54
<Lumiere>
epsas: there is nothing to be gained security wise or maintenance wise from IPv6 for LTSP
13:55
epsas: unless things changed substantially since I looked last
13:55
<ogra>
stgraber, oh, he seems to have read the ancient ThinClientHowto, would be great if that could be removed at some point and just point to Lns' pages
13:55
<epsas>
Lumiere - i am looking for people who have experience implementing ltsp in an IPv6 network environment
13:56
Lumiere - I am sure that every network has different needs. I need security and ease of maintenance =)
13:56
<Lumiere>
epsas: and I am trying to say it is highly unlikely that anyone does
13:56
<epsas>
Lumiere - why would you try to say that? =)
13:56
<Lumiere>
epsas: personal experience and the fact that very few people in general use IPv6 still
13:57
<epsas>
ahh, well that shouldn't affect me so much
13:57
<Lns>
ogra: which TC howto is outdated? Also while we're on the subject, can I get more access to the wiki (such as rename pages access) ? Who should I ask for that?
13:57
<Lumiere>
epsas: ogra can correct me... but most people who use LTSP go clients -> server -> network
13:57
<epsas>
so here is the thing -- the ltsp server would be the ipv6 router for the thin clients -- thus managing the dhcp -- it should be straightforward
13:57
<ogra>
Lumiere, well, actually its only server->network :)
13:58
the clients are only additional X/kbd/mouse etc
13:58
<Lumiere>
ogra: yes cause ( clients -> server ) are all internal normally
13:58
<ogra>
right
13:58
<Lumiere>
epsas: I still don't get your arguement for security and ease of maintenance
13:59
<epsas>
Lumiere - I wasn't making an argument for other people to switch.
13:59
<ogra>
Lns, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ThinClientHowto that needs to vanish or be redirected to UbuntuLTSP ... the page is actually for breezy
13:59
<Lumiere>
epsas: and I am trying to understand your choice so that I can answer with something other then it's not something to worry about
13:59
<ogra>
Lns, there is a note at the top but i dont think the person mailing ubuntu-devel actually saw it
13:59
<Lumiere>
ogra: can't you do that?

16:05

translation in what regard?
16:06
upstream software is usually handled by upstream :)
16:06
<dberkholz>
not really for software, but for website/newsletter stuff we do have people
16:06
<johnny>
yes.. gentoo has translation teams for internal projects
16:06
but we don't have alot of those..
16:07
<vagrantc>
well, the debian translation teams are generally happy to review translations for upstream software ... just wondering what the conventions are for other distros
16:08
<johnny>
oh.. nah.. we don't really do that
16:08
we no goliath like debian
16:09
<knipwim>

before they get added to upstream

jammcq: ltsp-developer might get a modest flood of mails needing moderation ... i posted a request for updated translations ... i don't know who all the moderators are
18:31
<jammcq>
yeah, I saw that
18:31
mike collins does all the mail moderating
18:31
'chupicabra'
18:32
he should have gotten the email that you sent
18:34
<vagrantc>
cool
18:43
<Ryan52>
did that dutch dude ever mail us his translation?
18:43
<vagrantc>
Ryan52: said they were stuck in moderation...
18:44
it was a new translation, rather than an update ... the timing was pure coincedence
