<zimoun>rekado: is good for you?
<zimoun>PurpleSym: is it good for you?
<zimoun>civodul: I do not know about the missing TODO
<zimoun>drop them?
<zimoun>another TODO: PhD theses (redundant with section "Reproductible Research in Practice"?)
<PurpleSym>zimoun: 146: This *is* where; 147: It extend*s*
<PurpleSym>I would also move (usually undeclared in CRAN itself) after dependencies.
<PurpleSym>The last sentence might work better as Any improvement to the already very good Guix CRAN importer, like enhanced auto-detection of these missing dependencies, also improves the channel’s quality.
<PurpleSym>As for package highlights, maybe mention RStudio Server in guix-science got upgraded to 2021.09.3+396 (in 2022).
<zimoun>PurpleSym, done. Thanks.
<civodul>just pushed a paragraph on guix-science
<zimoun>civodul: “Guix-HPC Activity Report“ or just “Guix-HPC activity report”?
<civodul>zimoun: capitalized
<civodul>(in general, but could depend on context)
<civodul>zimoun: want to do the TODO under "Packages"? :-)
<civodul>i'll take a look at the conclusion
<zimoun>civodul: Well, I do not know. I can try a paragraph about Julia and other various updates.
<civodul>awesome, that's a good start
<civodul>a couple of lines will be enough
<zimoun>civodul: pushed minor tweaks.
<zimoun>civodul: you are mentioning relocatable pack and the fakechroot blog post from 2020. Is it too many links to also mention in the paragraph right before about Docker pack?
<zimoun>civodul: “Its first lines of code were written in April 2022”, typo right? s/2022/2012 ?
<civodul>oh right
<civodul>please fix! :-)
<civodul>i've just pushed the "Perspectives" section
<civodul>it's a bit lyrical and all; i'd appreciate proof-reading!
<zimoun>I like this “lyrical” vision.
<civodul>zimoun: re fakechroot, i wonder; maybe we should just remove the paragraph that starts with "GNU Guix also supports"?
<civodul>it doesn't bring anything new actually
<civodul>not even a paragraph, a sentence
<civodul>i mean "We use relocatable packs for X and Y" would have been nice, but here it just says "Hey there's also relocatable packs"
<zimoun>my story about relocatable is still failing for deploying on Univ. Paris Cité cluster. So yeah, maybe it could be removed.
<zimoun>But the mention of potentially reproducible Docker pack still holds. ;-)
<zimoun>civodul: still one FIXME about Personnel.
<zimoun>I am fixing it then done.
<civodul>after lunch i'll tweak the PDF rendering and we should be done
<zimoun>civodul: just the DRAFT on the top and ready for publishing?
<civodul>oh right, we need to remove it :-)
<civodul>but like i said, PDF needs a bit more love
<zimoun>right :-) I will try to proofread the PDF after lunch… but you know, French lunch break can be extended by nap. ;-)
<civodul>ACTION looks at
<civodul>looks like we can stick a RISC-V logo in there without risk
<zimoun>I’m back
<zimoun>civodul: you mean without RISC ;-)
<zimoun>there is a script somewhere for producing the PDF?
<civodul>now fighting with pdfbook2
<civodul>Getting bounds... b'\nkpathsea: Running mktexfmt pdftex.fmt\nmktexfmt: mktexfmt is using the following fmtutil.cnf files (in precedence order):\nmktexfmt: mktexfmt is using the following fmtutil.cnf file for writing changes:\nmktexfmt: /tmp/guix-build-activity-report-2022.drv-0/.texlive2021/texmf-config/web2c/fmtutil.cnf\nmktexfmt [INFO]: writing formats under

<civodul>what's that
<zimoun>ACTION is downloading many substitutes
<zimoun>ACTION is applying (too!) many grafts
<zimoun>using Guix b8f6ead, “guix build -f build.scm” passes.
<zimoun>civodul, speaking about typo, the space between letters is sometimes really tiny. For example, p.4 p.6
<zimoun>Some subtitles are alone bottom page as “Ensuring Source Code Availability” p.9 instead of being next page
<civodul>i know
<civodul>looking into it
<zimoun>I do not know how I can help here. )-:
<civodul>are you able to create the booklet with pdfbook?
<zimoun>pdfbook? Something different from “guix build -f doc/build.scm”?
<zimoun>I do not know if it makes sense; pdfbook $(guix build -f doc/build.scm)/activity-report-2022.pdf returns OSError: [Errno 18] Invalid cross-device link: '.crop-tmp-book.pdf' -> '/gnu/store/2irjb1nsad90blx4ag39cficn9dsayn6-activity-report-2022/activity-report-2022-book.pdf'
<civodul>yeah, i've seen that one before
<civodul>or is there another tool?
<civodul>almost done with the booklet
<civodul>printing for quick review
<civodul> !!
<civodul>zimoun: can you email calcul@, recherche-reproductible@, devlog@, and similar French mailing lists?
<civodul>before everyone leaves for the week-end :-)
<zimoun>I can do it but only later today – now I must go to debug Guix colleague stuff – I hope to be back before everyone leaves for the week-end. :-)
<zimoun>civodul: I am back. I am going to send an email to French mailing list if it is not done yet?
<rekado>zimoun: I can only review anything in a few hours
<rekado>is there still time or are you all in submit mode?
<rekado>oh, already published
<rekado>thanks, everyone!
<civodul>thank you! :-)
<civodul>we ended up rushing as always, but hey, we're done
<rekado>sorry for my poor timing
