Description

Windows users are not as at home with the command line as unix users are. As such a simple UI Wizard to walk through a bibisect would be helpful.

(Assigning to cloph for now as it was budgeted as such for 2014.)

  • Status changed from New to Feedback

To make that happen, we need some feedback from Björn. Björn, can we aim for a phone conference early next week, can you make a proposal that fits for you? Monday (except 1500-1530) to Friday next week are just fine for me

Actions #2

Updated by Christian Lohmaier almost 10 years ago

  • Start date set to 2014-09-01

Florian (R): what about we sit together during the conference and get this done/see what's missing/where you're stuck/what approach to take?

Cloph talked to Florian R. during LibOCon
Florian R. will work on this, just had issues with his machine during LibOCon
Currently, nothing needs doing from Cloph's POV

Proposal is that Cloph pokes Florian R. again by next week to see where he stands, to be able to assist with further questions in time; Björn's hard deadline was December 31

Actions #4

Updated by Florian Reisinger over 9 years ago

Nothing done, or plans tomdo. Slow (increadible) and so hard to check... (And no time as well duee to university)

Actions #5

Updated by Florian Effenberger over 9 years ago

Update from team call:
Florian E. to raise this with the board, and either put it onto Cloph's pile or find someone else

Actions #6

Updated by Florian Effenberger over 9 years ago

The plan is to indeed add this to your pile, Cloph. Can you give a rough estimation in workdays on how much time you would need?

Actions #7

Updated by Florian Effenberger over 9 years ago

~5 days estimation, floeff to follow-up with core@ on that

Update: Cloph takes care of this

What's the status here? Can we meed the schedule?

Actions #12

Updated by Florian Effenberger over 9 years ago

  • Due date changed from 2014-12-19 to 2015-02-20
  • Priority changed from High to Normal

We had a couple of emergencies end of last year where Cloph helped out, so this got delayed - reassigning to after FOSDEM and setting priority to normal, as there IMHO is no real urgency between now and then

Actions #13

Updated by Joel Madero over 9 years ago

No urgency at all but when it's started can Cloph poke me on IRC or over email - there are some kinks in the current bibisect that maybe can be fixed while Cloph is digging into it (just maybe). If Cloph says these are separate issues I'll report them separately. Thanks all for the hard work

Actions #14

Updated by Florian Effenberger about 9 years ago

  • Priority changed from Normal to High

This is delayed by the infra story. I know end of 2014 was desired. If there's a fixed deadline on that, please let me know and we need to find another solution, otherwise Cloph should look into this when the infra story is done
Raising priority to create awareness ;-)

Talked to Cloph about this, sending some feedback to Björn and follow-up then in this ticket

Robinson to talk to mjayfrancis (maybe starting with a portable Python UI frontend on Linux)

Actions #20

Updated by Robinson Tryon almost 9 years ago

Per suggestion, chatted with mjayfrancis about possibility of working on Python-based UI. He's working on other bibisect-related topics right now, and doesn't seem that interested. Perhaps Florian R. might have some interest, especially if we have mentor/guidance for him on Python programming.

Sounds like there are still speed issues on Windows that affect even the command-line use of git. Testing on a pretty beefy machine there is a noticeable lag running checkouts in a win10 VM vs. an Ubuntu VM, so a lower-spec'd machine would undoubtedly show an even worse disparity between the OSes. Maybe we just need to strongly suggest a min hardware spec for testing on windows?

Status right now seems that neither Cloph nor Robinson can work on this
I'll add this to my pile for further action and investigation

just as a note on the (now dead topic): This guy seems to have build some generic version of bibisect: https://github.com/TheMarex/git-bibisect
