Dev call 10/14/2009 minutes

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.


I wasn't on the call for 10/7/2009, so I don't have notes for that day.



  • Planning to push 2.5.3 out.

  • Planning to keep working on extracting binary kit stuff.

  • Then get miro working on Karmic Koala.

  • Then moving libtorrent out of portable.

  • Will be in Providence, RI from October 23rd through 26th.


  • Continuing work on subtitle work.

  • Perian doesn't support subtitles in subfolders. Luc is looking into fixing Perian and then sending a patch upstream.

  • Luc is going to start looking into VLC support next.


  • Planning to work on 12101. One of the theories is that when torrents are downloading, Miro is doing a lot of disk thrashing.

  • Remove torrent metadata from the updates.

  • Tweak status so that we only persist to disk every now and then.

  • Plans to work on bug 12229.

  • It's difficult to figure out how many people are affected by 12101.


  • Working on Miro Community 0.8 release. It's coming along nicely.


  • Tested Miro Community and Miro 2.5 branch builds.

  • Working on testing plans for Miro Community post 0.8 release.

2.5.3 status:

  • Talked about 12277 and 12276 and where we're going with that plan.

  • Hopefully we'll get it out today or tomorrow.
