2015-12-03 23:21:01 +0000 <mray> i think that makes sense.
2015-12-03 23:21:25 +0000 <mray> i'm just surprised that my code qould be going live in this form already
2015-12-03 23:21:37 +0000 <chreekat> that's another point of confusion. It isn't
2015-12-03 23:21:51 +0000 <wolftune> mray: it wouldn't, that was just misunderstanding
2015-12-03 23:22:19 +0000 <mray> ok.
2015-12-03 23:22:44 +0000 <wolftune> chreekat: here's THE point: work from lots of people goes into the creation of a thing that exists that is NOT ready to deploy. Where do we get the ultimate latest version of that which has the latest that everyone knows about?
2015-12-03 23:23:04 +0000 <wolftune> isn't that what branches on the main repo are for?
2015-12-03 23:23:22 +0000 <chreekat> Who owns the work right now?
2015-12-03 23:23:34 +0000 <wolftune> I thought that it was standard Git practice to have multiple branches on a main repo for features or such…
2015-12-03 23:23:56 +0000 <chreekat> Teher is no right way to git
2015-12-03 23:24:14 +0000 <wolftune> but there's common practices… which we can accept or reject
2015-12-03 23:24:50 +0000 <chreekat> To answer my own question, jazzy owns the work right now, so there's already a perfectly good branch to use: jazzyeagle/new-home-and-intro
2015-12-03 23:24:59 +0000 <wolftune> I don't even know how to answer "who owns", I'm just saying "hey, I'd like to see the latest status of the new design work" and if there's been wiring up done by JazzyEagle or updates from you that *have* been merged… where do I see this?
2015-12-03 23:25:23 +0000 <wolftune> chreekat: okay
2015-12-03 23:26:13 +0000 <chreekat> I don't think it really helped anybody to have a snowdrift branch. It cerated a lot of ugly git history.
2015-12-03 23:26:14 +0000 <wolftune> so, the next step is what? What if mray has ideas about how he wants to tweak JazzyEagle's stuff, and rather than just review it, he wants to provide a notable CSS update?
2015-12-03 23:26:58 +0000 <JazzyEagle> wolftune: couldn't he just pull, fix, push, and send *me* the MR?
2015-12-03 23:27:00 +0000 <chreekat> He can clone jazzy's branch locally, make changes, push them to his personal remote
2015-12-03 23:27:21 +0000 <JazzyEagle> or even just tell me to pull his changes.
2015-12-03 23:27:29 +0000 <wolftune> JazzyEagle: yes, the latter
2015-12-03 23:27:38 +0000 <wolftune> until GitLab supports MR's between forks
2015-12-03 23:27:57 +0000 <wolftune> mostly, I just want all that to be clear
2015-12-03 23:28:00 +0000 <chreekat> Yeah, MR would be nice, but if gitlab doesn't support that, jazzy can then clone mray's branch and diff/merge
2015-12-03 23:28:09 +0000 <wolftune> got it
2015-12-03 23:28:34 +0000 <wolftune> so, I think miscommunication started with this:
2015-12-03 23:28:59 +0000 <wolftune> mray said that he felt the homepage design was mainly done for look and feel purposes… not sure how completely valid that is
2015-12-03 23:29:29 +0000 <wolftune> there was lack of clarity between mray and JazzyEagle about what decisions were outstanding about the content of the homepage
2015-12-03 23:30:01 +0000 <mray> wolftune, that remains as valid as the content does not change in any way
2015-12-03 23:30:07 +0000 <wolftune> mostly, I think mray should more formally say, "here, JazzyEagle, this is done now, ready to wire up"
2015-12-03 23:30:10 +0000 <mray> the footer is an exception though
2015-12-03 23:30:32 +0000 <chreekat> My understanding is that mray did that
2015-12-03 23:30:40 +0000 <wolftune> okay
2015-12-03 23:30:42 +0000 <mray> yes i did
2015-12-03 23:30:58 +0000 <mray> but only concerning the homepage and the intro page
2015-12-03 23:31:05 +0000 <wolftune> well, JazzyEagle I think did not grasp clearly the distinction between footer being underspecified but other stuff different
