  1. Brief introduction (5 min). Please prefix your name/handle with #info (rainemak, 07:00:32)

  2. Notification popups in lipstick (10mins -- asked by thigg) (rainemak, 07:05:41)
    1. <thigg> Sometimes (especially when using android apps) (rainemak, 07:05:52)
    2. <thigg> notifications are hiding other ui elements (forum: Notifications hiding buttons). (rainemak, 07:05:52)
    3. <thigg> My idea to handle this was to mute notifications for some time (30s) if the (rainemak, 07:05:52)
    4. <thigg> notification is swiped to the left. After 30s a notification is shown that (rainemak, 07:05:52)
    5. <thigg> notifications are enabled again and the notifications from the queue are shown. (rainemak, 07:05:52)
    6. <thigg> (rainemak, 07:05:54)
    7. <thigg> This looks quite simple to implement at https://github.com/nemomobile-ux/lipstick/blob/e6e336f4c7e190f8c24802cc1337efa39be7bf93/src/notifications/notificationpreviewpresenter.cpp#L88 (rainemak, 07:05:55)
    8. <thigg> by returning early if the current time is <= the time in a muted_until value (rainemak, 07:05:58)
    9. <thigg> and patching the notification popup Notifications hiding buttons - #6 by thigg. (rainemak, 07:06:00)
    10. <thigg> When the notifications are muted, a timer is started which fires a “notifications (rainemak, 07:06:02)
    11. <thigg> enabled” notification after the mute period and this would trigger the appearance (rainemak, 07:06:05)
    12. <thigg> of all other notifications. And probably a dbus interface for lipstick to set muted_until (rainemak, 07:06:10)
    13. <thigg> from the popup. (rainemak, 07:06:13)
    14. <thigg> (rainemak, 07:06:15)
    15. <thigg> Because modifications to lipstick are hard (impossible?) to deliver to users, (rainemak, 07:06:17)
    16. <thigg> collaboration with jolla would be helpful. At least the dbus- interface to set (rainemak, 07:06:19)
    17. <thigg> muted_until would have to be done by jolla. (rainemak, 07:06:21)
    18. <thigg> (rainemak, 07:06:23)
    19. <thigg> I’d like to discuss the problem, this proposed workaround and if jolla is willing to (rainemak, 07:06:25)
    20. <thigg> collaborate on this (or even do it on their own) (rainemak, 07:06:28)
    21. https://forum.sailfishos.org/t/notifications-hiding-buttons/16717 (rainemak, 07:06:30)
    22. https://github.com/nemomobile-ux/lipstick/blob/e6e336f4c7e190f8c24802cc1337efa39be7bf93/src/notifications/notificationpreviewpresenter.cpp#L88 (rainemak, 07:06:32)
    23. <Jolla> Thank you thigg! This is a very good and interesting topic. This is indeed (rainemak, 07:06:57)
    24. <Jolla> something occasionally annoys users. One idea that was brought up could be (rainemak, 07:06:57)
    25. <Jolla> using similar adaptive mechanisms that is used for display dimming. For example, (rainemak, 07:06:57)
    26. <Jolla> it could be so that first notification that is dismissed by swipe could suppress (rainemak, 07:06:57)
    27. <Jolla> notification queue for 5sec, next new notification that is dismissed by swipe (rainemak, 07:06:57)
    28. <Jolla> would prolong suppress to 10sec, and so on. (rainemak, 07:06:58)
    29. <Jolla> (rainemak, 07:07:05)
    30. <Jolla> Related to this, one problematic app category is navigation apps as those might start (rainemak, 07:07:05)
    31. <Jolla> showing notifications from your route and those might be triggered too frequently. (rainemak, 07:07:05)
    32. <Jolla> In this kind of scenario, one might want to have notification suppressed completely (rainemak, 07:07:10)
    33. <Jolla> from the app that spams notifications. Worth exploring whether this kind of action (rainemak, 07:07:13)
    34. <Jolla> could be visible by default. (rainemak, 07:07:16)

  3. Guidance about maintaining an HADK-faq wiki page (5mins -- asked by poetaster) (rainemak, 07:21:32)
    1. <poetaster> In the main, a number of porters have mentioned the difficulty in (rainemak, 07:21:32)
    2. <poetaster> working on the HADK docs. And ad-hoc etherpad is the present hacking (rainemak, 07:21:32)
    3. <poetaster> approach. To get the more structured I created HADK | SailfishOS community (rainemak, 07:21:32)
    4. <poetaster> wiki 4 This contains a dump of the etherpad and a first transfer of the faq (rainemak, 07:21:32)
    5. <poetaster> PDF to a wiki page. This is far from ideal. Is source for the pdf available (rainemak, 07:21:34)
    6. <poetaster> or is it a classic ‘word like’ document? (rainemak, 07:21:35)
    7. https://sailfishos.wiki/books/hadk (rainemak, 07:21:37)
    8. <Jolla> Thank you for asking. Which ad-hoc etherpad you’re referring to? We moved (rainemak, 07:22:03)
    9. <Jolla> http://piratepad.net/hadk-faq-v2 content to https://github.com/mer-hybris/hadk-faq (rainemak, 07:22:04)
    10. <Jolla> some time back already. Intention there is that hadk-faq would be used wiki like (rainemak, 07:22:04)
    11. <Jolla> and people would create PRs to it. (rainemak, 07:22:04)
    12. <Jolla> (rainemak, 07:22:04)
    13. <Jolla> HADK is not a word document rather a set of rst from which pdf is generated. (rainemak, 07:22:05)
    14. David Llewellyn-Jones, community, latecomer (flypig, 07:26:04)
