  2. Testing update/project status (Petr) - 14:32 UK

    • DB upgrade from 4.4 to 5.0, data on howe brought into staging server

    • image names must be marked clearly with if they were imported under 4.4 or 5.0
    • Ice 3.5 Windows issue, so downloads page adjusted to favor Ice 3.4
  3. PR workflow discussion - 14:39 UK

    • 'Exclude' vs 'close' PRs
      • Josh: Andreas would like something between the two
        • can’t exclude one’s own PR
      • Helen: perhaps snoopy could read --exclude comments
        • Seb S: people could then un-exclude their build-breaking PRs
        • Chris: snoopy could look at both issue label and PR comments
      • Mark: prefer not to close PRs, so as not to forget that some work was pending
      • Curtis: use snoopy as proxy to parse commands and label accordingly
        • Jean-Marie: would be a good start
        • Chris: parse when merge build runs
    • docs PRs on both branches at once to avoid further nitpicky changes on rebase
      • Colin: people can find issues with rebases, and then with the rebases of the rebases, etc., so perhaps only merge once corresponding PRs on both branches are accepted
