@_oftc_jochensp:matrix.orgjochenspi.e. you can do git show $(git describe --long)16:57:19

In reply to @_oftc_jochensp:matrix.org
the good thing with git describe --long is that git understands it, so we don't have to change other code (hopefully :D )
good point. I wasn't sure about that.
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆) in that case, I'd suggest using git describe --long --abbrev=100 17:00:22
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆) * in that case, I'd suggest using git describe --long --abbrev=40 17:00:30
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆)(not sure whether that could break when using shallow clones though)17:01:03
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆)(or whether that's relevant)17:01:10

yes, but it will show you the commit, instead of the tag :(

So what time is our meeting today? 6 pm UTC?
So late 😴
@fdroid-meeting-alert-bot:matrix.orgfdroid-meeting-alert-botPing @SylvieLorxu:matrix.org @eighthave:matrix.org @obfusk:matrix.org @uniq:matrix.org Izzy: Weekly meeting at https://meet.calyx.net/fdroid starting17:55:16
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaThanks bot I would've forgotten :)17:56:14
@eighthave:matrix.org_hc Stencil: next week its at 11:30 UTC 18:00:07
@eighthave:matrix.org_hc 幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆): we're on the meeting, if you'd like to join 18:02:40
@cdesai:matrix.orgcdehttps://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidclient/-/issues/1836 it would be nice to see it in this month before Android S releases.19:02:48
@cdesai:matrix.orgcdeit'll allow f-droid to auto update certain apps which meet a criteria, and in the future f-droid itself once we target a newer API19:03:21
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆)to briefly reiterate what I said in the meeting: my "speciality" is diagnosing (and ideally then also fixing) bugs (often in codebases and sometimes even languages I've never seen before). so please let me know if there's a bug (in any of the f-droid projects -- though I prefer languages that are not Java πŸ˜…) you'd like me to look at 😸20:07:36
@_oftc_Izzy:matrix.orgIzzy 幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆): the F-Droid client issue I mentioned is described here: https://github.com/k3b/intent-intercept/issues/14 20:21:04
@_oftc_Izzy:matrix.orgIzzyWatch out for MuntashirAkon describing it.20:21:40
@_oftc_Izzy:matrix.orgIzzyStarts around here: https://github.com/k3b/intent-intercept/issues/14#issuecomment-89569817620:22:01
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆) Izzy: I think the issue is that fdroidclient assigns a "priority" to repos. the last one added gets the highest priority. and thus provides the suggested version. 21:18:38
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆)(regardless of whether other repos have a higher (suggested) version or not)21:19:27
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆)https://gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidclient/-/issues/188721:25:38
@_oftc_Izzy:matrix.orgIzzy 幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆): yes, I've heard that before – but I never understood why that has effects like this. I *partly* understand it when it comes to new installations of the same version with different signatures; but otherwise the side effects IMHO aren't really worth it. If that's wanted at all, the user should have the option to re-order the priority. 21:25:50
@_oftc_Izzy:matrix.orgIzzy As pointed out, only the official client has that issue I've been told. So maybe we should reconsider this, or make it optional? 21:26:47
@_oftc_Izzy:matrix.orgIzzy But then, whom do I tell – neither of us is "the Java guy" ;) 21:27:14
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆)somewhat related: personally, I'd like to be able to allow/blocklist which apps a repo is allowed to provide.21:30:54
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆) (that way I can't accidentally install a new app from the "wrong" repo) 21:31:21
@_oftc_Izzy:matrix.orgIzzyThat can become tricky with larger repos, like F-Droid (3.5k+) or mine (720+ apps) – unless you want to go for whitelist mode (block all apps except those you want to have).22:05:55
@obfusk:matrix.org幸猫 (𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗒/𝗍𝗁𝖾𝗆) Izzy: true. I think blocklist/allowlist (per repo) + block/allow newly added apps by default setting (per repo) would be nice. 22:12:54
