13:21:42 <FranciscoD> alakatos++
13:21:48 <FranciscoD> .thank alakatos
13:21:48 <zodbot> FranciscoD thinks alakatos is awesome and is happy they are helping! (Please also type alakatos++ since that is what gives them a cookie)
13:22:10 <FranciscoD> so that's also done in a way

13:23:45 <FranciscoD> that's all from the logs: were there any other tasks that may perhaps not have been recorded?
13:24:03 * FranciscoD waits a minute before proceeding to the next topic
13:24:30 <FranciscoD> #topic Open Pagure tickets
13:24:36 <FranciscoD> #link
13:24:56 <FranciscoD> #into Nothing here apart from the reading/listening list
13:25:16 <FranciscoD> #info Please add interesting links to the ticket for everyone to see:
13:25:30 <FranciscoD> #topic Open NeuroFedora bugs
13:25:38 <FranciscoD> #info All our open bugs:
13:26:00 <MeWjOr> I actually wanted to raise a ticket... There's a new version of it, and bugzilla didn't report it
13:26:11 <MeWjOr> s/it/odml
13:26:24 <MeWjOr> I was trying it out last week and realised it
13:26:32 <FranciscoD> MeWjOr: is it set up on
13:26:48 <MeWjOr> I'll look into it it up as soon as I get a chance
13:26:50 <FranciscoD> what's the package name? `odml`?
13:26:54 <MeWjOr> python-odml
13:27:16 <FranciscoD> OK, I'll assign that to you then
13:27:18 <MeWjOr> I'm not sure... Didn't work from the source URL of the packages?
13:27:32 <FranciscoD> MeWjOr: no, it needs to be manually set up for each package
13:27:45 <FranciscoD> #action MeWjOr check if has been set up for python-odml
13:27:50 <MeWjOr> ach... I'll add it then
13:28:08 <FranciscoD> MeWjOr: also, I see that "monitoring" is on, but not "monitoring with scratch builds": could you update that too?
13:28:28 <FranciscoD> with scratch builds, each time you push a commit, a build is triggered as part of CI to tell you if it builds correctly
13:28:58 <MeWjOr> ahh... Thats good
13:28:58 <FranciscoD> #action MeWjOr update monitoring status for python-odml to "monitoring with scratch builds"
13:29:25 <FranciscoD> On the bug list, there are a few updates, nothing urgent
13:29:30 <FranciscoD> #info Open bugs related to new releases
13:29:34 * bt0 is learning a lot :P
13:30:03 <MeWjOr> lol, same
13:30:06 <FranciscoD> #info Team: please feel free to reassign bugs to yourself and work on them if the primary maintainer has not yet started working on them
13:30:15 <FranciscoD> if you'd like, you can ping the bug to ask
13:30:29 <FranciscoD> but the idea of us maintaining packages as a team with commit access is that we can help each other out with bugs
13:30:42 <FranciscoD> so please don't limit your activities to packages where you are primary maintainer only
13:31:08 <FranciscoD> (of course, if a package is complex, you can leave it for the primary maintainer :D)
13:31:45 <FranciscoD> All package maintainers should also have subscribed to the private neuro-sig@lists.fp.o mailing list where bugzilla sends notifications
13:32:13 <FranciscoD> Moving to next topic, since there aren't any urgent bugs
13:32:27 <FranciscoD> #topic Koschei packages check
13:32:39 <FranciscoD> #info Koschei monitors all neuro-sig packages here:
13:33:07 <FranciscoD> hrm, is koschei down?
13:33:35 <FranciscoD> ah, no, it's up, was getting an error initialy
13:33:56 <FranciscoD> neurord is beyond saving, so let's skip that one
13:33:59 <bt0> #link
13:35:02 <FranciscoD> #info python-biopython is currently failing on rawhide: but no bug has been filed
13:35:43 <MeWjOr> beyond saving?
13:35:46 <MeWjOr> what happened?
13:35:48 <MeWjOr> :P
13:36:10 <FranciscoD> java hell, it won't build because deps are missing etc iirc
13:36:23 <FranciscoD> (neurord)
13:36:28 <MeWjOr> ach... Java... >.<
13:36:35 <FranciscoD> it'll get retired automatically in a bit
13:37:03 <FranciscoD> #info Filed an FTBFS for python-biopython:

13:37:33 <FranciscoD> #info Filed an FTBFS for python-biopython:
13:37:36 <FranciscoD> there, much better..

13:43:55 <FranciscoD> #topic Neuroscience query of the week
13:44:11 <FranciscoD> 5 minutes here: anything folks want to discuss from a neuroscience perspective?
13:44:43 <FranciscoD> If one is interested in the "predictive coding hypothesis" about how the brain functions, this is a good read:
13:44:57 <FranciscoD> (shared on the reading/listening list ticket)
13:45:19 <FranciscoD> And, I ran into this COVID vaccine related thread this morning, also worth a look
13:46:06 <FranciscoD> #info Twitter thread on COVID vaccines by Florian Krammer, Professor at the Department of Microbiology Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai:
13:46:43 <FranciscoD> Feel free to share other neuroscience (or just science) related bits that you found interesting
13:47:09 <FranciscoD> Also, we have a "planet neuroscientists" here that collects RSS feeds from lots of sources:
13:48:00 <FranciscoD> "planet neuroscience", on the other hand, is subscribed to journals etc:
13:48:13 <FranciscoD> one can download the blog list to use it on their RSS feed reader
13:48:41 <MeWjOr> 10 months - 1.5 years for the covid vaccine... I still feel it will be more... :P
13:49:11 <FranciscoD> Yeh, who knows, generally takes a decade
13:49:19 <FranciscoD> Ah, another one
13:49:20 <bt0> yeah

13:51:28 <FranciscoD> At the lab, we all have to monitor certain journals and point out what work may be relevant to the lab's projects
13:51:55 <fm-neuro> pagure.issue.comment.added -- ankursinha commented on ticket neuro-sig/NeuroFedora#318: "NeuroFedora reading/listening list"
