02:12:42JdGordonyes and no
02:13:01JdGordonerr... it does *not* use its own state for playback status
02:13:04jhMikeSschrodinger's skin?
02:13:11jhMikeSoh
02:13:30JdGordonit doesnt necessarily update absolutly immediatly though
02:14:01JdGordonthe sbs might only update once every button press, the wps will be either 10HZ or 25HZ IIRC

03:01:11jhMikeSwith some care, some playback control actions can just be done on the caller thread so that buffering tracks and user actions have minimal contact. audio does too much (but that's another project) :)

09:41:10sideralJdGordon: Out of pure curiosity, and no offense intended: Why didn't you voice your objection to the Time&Date menu change proposed by Saint any sooner?
09:41:53[Saint]Ohhhhh....ffs.
09:41:58[Saint]I've been busy.
09:42:04[Saint]What *is* the objection.
09:42:36[Saint]sideral? (where can I view this?)
09:43:16sideralon the mailing list
09:43:28[Saint]thanks.
09:43:38*[Saint] looks and prepares to grit his teeth.
09:43:48sideralSaint: This is exactly why I wanted you to start a separate thread
09:44:20 Nick kugel is now known as kugelp (~kugel@rockbox/developer/kugel)
09:45:56JdGordonsideral: i did notice, i dont particularly care that much and didnt want to derail that other thread
09:46:05[Saint]sideral: I still don't see the point. The two are tied together.
09:46:11JdGordonpersonally i think the system menu should just be removed
09:46:21[Saint]It needs to get sorted out, dividing the thrwad reducxes the chances of that happening.
09:46:42kugelpsideral: i suggest ignoring JdGordon :-)
09:47:05n1si think its fun how this discussion keeps surfacing, the one we had llast time the position of the time and date was changed was very long and boring
09:47:35JdGordoni stand by "time & date" not belonging in settings, but really dont care all that much
09:47:59[Saint]which is exactly why I think it should be changed while the majority are in favour of it, and to hell with those who haven't voiced an opinion.
09:48:45[Saint]ANd I, stand firmly with "time & Date" should be in settings, if only for the fact that "System" is a fucking stupid place for it.
09:49:08n1sthat's a crap attitude necause to count as having "voiced an oppinion" here you need to do so over and over everytime the discussion restarts
09:49:26God_Eatermoving Time & Date into settings seems sensible to me
09:49:43[Saint]If you look at the rest of the items in System, Time & Date sticks out like a sore thumb.
09:49:58 Join casainho [0] (~chatzilla@2.81.223.246)
09:50:00[Saint]Moving it out leaves that menu for "System-esque" things.
09:51:02JdGordonsettings without t&d has: "rockbox info" "credits" "running time" and "debug info". rockbox info is pointless, credits is a bit of a wank, running time is entirely stupid, and debug info is pointless and should be disable by default
09:51:17[Saint]I realize that Rockbox rarely follows the convention of other devices just because it "should" (contentious), but many devices consider Time and Date a setting, and I personally think it will make it a lot easier for new users to discover.
09:51:55[Saint]s/Settings/System/?
09:52:01JdGordonhow about we move the "system" menu entries into "settings" and *rename* settings to system
09:52:25*sideral tunes out of this argument. I'll have a look later, but otherwise won't let this delay the sleep-timer enhancements any further.
09:52:52JdGordoneverything currently in settings has the "settings" suffix in english anyway so it is obvious which is a setting and which "isnt"
09:53:23[Saint]sideral: As it stands...I'd basically ignore this and go with what we had earlier this afternoon (when I *thought* (Oh, silly me) we had it sorted... ;) )
09:53:27JdGordonsideral: err... *where* in the settings submenu are you planing on putting t&d?
09:55:05[Saint]I was thinking (as I'm fairly confident most were...) "/ - Settings - Time & Data - <t & d sub-menus>"
09:55:41JdGordonso why not do that with the other system menu items?
09:55:55JdGordonor better yet, move settings directly into system
09:56:32 Join nick-p [0] (~52456978@giant.haxx.se)
09:56:33[Saint]Argh!..no that seems far to much of a drastic change.
09:56:41[Saint]This is getting *really* bike-shed
09:56:52sideralJdGordon: I won't put it there at all unless Saint wins piggybacking this change on the sleep-timer changes. :) If he does, though, I'll put it last, just before Manage Settings
09:57:38 Join nickp2 [0] (~52456978@giant.haxx.se)
09:57:47[Saint]I thought it was (apparently not by all) decided that Time & Date was getting pulling into Settings, and System will become "About" and stay in the main menu where it was as it was previously.
09:57:53nickp2sideral: thanks for the effort you've put into this, I'm feeling a bit guilty at the grief it has caused you.
09:58:07sideralnick-p: Please make sure you don't make any further changes until this operetta is over :)
09:58:34JdGordon[Saint]: and im saying whatever the system menu is called, it is pointless and removing it completly makes more sense
09:58:39nickp2sideral: sure, was just curious how the other suggestion would work out.
09:58:49[Saint]sideral: I do love the way you make this all my fault....it actually fucks me off. Just ecause I suggested it, look at the fucking thread...ITS NOT JUST ME THAT WANTS THIS.
09:59:04JdGordonrelax [Saint]
09:59:34[Saint]I'm just getting sick of all the digs at me and getting blamed for holding this up.
09:59:46n1si would still prefer gratitous menu changes not to be mixed in with functional changes and discussed separately
09:59:47*JdGordon sees no digs
10:00
10:00:31[Saint]n1s: I would agree too, were the two not related.
10:00:59[Saint]Its not like I've sugegsted a completely arbitrary menu change in this thread...its tied to the patch.
10:01:05sideralSaint: I didn't mean to dig. Apologies if it came across like that.
10:01:08[Saint]bah, *suggested
10:01:31 Quit nick-p (Quit: CGI:IRC (Ping timeout))
10:01:41n1s[Saint]: yeah it's related but i don't see why it had to be changed at the same time
10:01:44sideralSaint: But I do think as well that the menu change should be discussed separately. It does not depend on the sleep-timer enhancements, even though the reverse may not be true
10:01:53[Saint]sideral: Thanks, I'm probably reading it wrong but its coming across to me as though the blame for this not being in svn presently is resting on my shoulders.
10:01:56[Saint]Sorry for venting.
10:02:12*God_Eater thinks the menu controversy is actually AlexP's fault ;)
10:02:29[Saint]n1s: I've never said it has to be, I've said *multiple* times that it should be committed seperately even! ;)
10:02:35nickp2[Saint] I'm not sure it's that related, the functionality would still work wherever it was set from
10:02:39[Saint]I just don't think it warrants two threads.
10:03:04sideralSaint: Then you'll have to live with my "picking" :)
10:03:34sideralAnyway, it looks like JdGordon is not throwing his full weight behind blocking this change −− correct?
10:04:26[Saint]I'm not sure where the idea came up that I don't think this should go in *until* the menu is changed...I don't thnk that at all. While I think it'd be nice to do it all in one go I've never been opposed to committing the timer and then the menu cleanup afterward.
10:04:50[Saint]I just think (and its likely true) that the menu cleanup is far less likely to happen if it doesn't go in at the same time.
10:04:55sideralnickp2: Don't feel guilty. This isn't really anyone's fault, it's just the way it is with so many stakeholders. I'm willing to believe that compromise is possible −− I'm always optimistic :)
10:05:13JdGordonsideral: I'm saying the change isnt enough, and also that it isnt related to the origional patch and should be dealt with
10:05:17[Saint]sideral: You'd know about it if he was ;)
10:05:28[Saint]JdGordon can make even more noise than I can when he wants to ;)
10:05:38nickp2sideral: design by committee? ;)
10:05:49*JdGordon is technically still at work and working
10:06:42sideralnickp2: In a sense, yes. Except that we don't listen to people who don't contribute. :)
10:07:32Bagderalso, we don't listen to people who can't quote sufficiently big chunks from Monty Python's The Holy Grail
10:07:56*Bagder feels he's helping out a lot here
10:08:09[Saint]And we don't listen to people that have the opposing position to ourselves.
10:08:15[Saint]Saves time and effort :P
10:08:17God_Eatersideral: in a lot of cases we don't listen to people who *do* contribute either ;)
10:08:26God_Eaterso it's all very fair
10:08:28God_Eater:D
10:08:28JdGordonpretty sure its just "we dont listen"
10:08:32sideralJdGordon: Alright, please take your time. I'll wait another day or two until I decide whether this will go in in one go or without the menu change
10:08:39Bagderwe are all different!
10:08:47sideral:)
10:08:53Bagderah, that was another movie
10:08:56JdGordonsideral: will you be online in a couple of hours?
10:09:31[Saint]sideral: Just to make it *absolutlely* clear, in case it has come off as anything different...I am *not* opposed to this going in incrementally.
10:09:35sideralyeah, but I won't have much time for arguing
10:09:40[Saint]ie. time first, then menu cleanup.
10:09:43JdGordonwho's arguing? :)
10:09:45sideralSaint: understood
10:10:21[Saint]I apologise if its seemed that way, its never been my point of view.
10:10:47sideralnickp2: What do you think of my suggestion to pick up on Thomas Martitz's default-to-last-selection idea?
10:11:38nickp2sideral: It's a good one, I'm sure no-one would object to seeing their last setting be sticky.
10:11:56sideralGlad you like it as well, nickp2
10:11:59nickp2sideral: after all, it's the way volume, tone etc behave.
10:12:30sideralright. An argument that I failed to think of before :)
10:13:05[Saint]s/argumeny/"point of discussion"/ ;)
10:13:14[Saint]arguments bring contention ;D
10:14:06sideraloops, thank you Saint :)
10:14:09nickp2At this stage though, as long as the sleep timer starts when I turn the device on and I don't have to maintain the patch for another couple of years, anything sounds good ;)
10:15:55sideralJdGordon: In case you want to discuss the menu change more on the mailing list, can you do me a favor and change the subject line?
10:16:10JdGordonwill do
10:16:18sideralthanks!

12:29:45LloreanI think the debug menu should be there for current builds, but disabled for release builds.
12:31:26LloreanI don't like getting rid of the top level "System" menu entirely, just because there are things in it that definitely aren't settings (Rockbox Info doesn't let you set anything).
12:32:03LloreanInstead I'd probably rename "System" to "Rockbox Info" and then refine how it presents the various information it does a little bit (after moving T&D)
12:34:54TorneLlorean: I don't think it matters that they aren't settings, tbh
12:35:05Tornethe About menu option in most programs is also not help, really
12:35:08*Torne shrugs
12:35:16Tornepeople expect "that kind of thing" to be tucked away
12:35:31Torneand "the last option on the main menu which is called settings" seems reasonable as a place to find it
12:37:14LloreanTorne: I do agree about tucking them away, in general. But a few things in that menu are used pretty regularly by the blind folk. The current "Rockbox Info" is where they get their battery level spoken
12:37:33LloreanWhich makes it nice to be fairly quick to get to after tapping the "menu" key.
12:40:01 Quit AlexP (Remote host closed the connection)
12:50:02JdGordon"settings" in the main menu is redundant if system and settings merge

12:56:23JdGordonand naming it settings makes the argument about weather something is a setting or not goes away
12:57:29TorneI seriously think it woudl be weird to have the top level menu not be called settings still
12:57:37Torneand i think people will be surprised and ask dumb questions about it
12:57:49Tornei don't see the need to have arguments about whether things are settings or not in the first place
12:58:03Tornei'm perfectly happy for things which are not strictly settings but are to do with the general system setup be in there

13:03:07LloreanTorne: Honestly, if it were completely up to me, I'd put "Rockbox Info" on its own in the context menu, move T&D to the system settings, and drop the "System" option in the main menu entirely, moving "Debug" to settings.
13:05:19TorneLlorean: i don't really have an opinion either way on putting rockbox info at the top level or not
13:05:20JdGordonhiding rockbox info in a context menu isnt such a good idea either
13:06:02God_Eateryeah, in what context would it show up?
13:06:06LloreanI'd "hide" it in every context menu.
13:06:14LloreanThe one context you're always in is "Rockbox"
13:06:31JdGordonpardon?
13:06:49LloreanIt's really more of a "Device Status" option than a "Rockbox Info" option for the most part.
13:08:43n1si think putting it in a context menu would be weird

13:51:38*JdGordon cries at some of the code he's done
13:52:44JdGordonok, one thing at a time... putting the current settings menu inside the system menu is by far the easiest change... is anyone else liking that idea?
13:52:54JdGordonor is it going to have to be move the items from system into settings?
13:56:11kugelpI don't necessarily agree with merging
13:57:13kugelpbut I don't care hugely
13:57:55kugelpbut I think this should be done after we are finished with the t&d issues
13:58:44JdGordonthe only reason we are talking about it is because of that patch, and there is no reason we cant solve it before that patch
14:00
14:04:25kugelpexcept making up issues to make the life of the author even harder
14:04:59JdGordonhttp://pastebin.com/xcqynuMs is what I'd like to commit. just move settings into system and move playlist catalog up above resume playback
14:05:06LloreanYeah, the sleep timer revisions can go in with or without moving the system menu. It shouldn't hold up the sleep timer patch.
14:06:15JdGordonmoving the system items into settings is more work and imo not a good idea. Naming the combined item should be system, no settings
14:06:48JdGordonand wtf? this makes no difference to the sleep patch, all its settings go in t&d wherever it ends up
14:07:31LloreanWhat does moving playlist catalog have to do with any of these?
14:08:24JdGordonclassic misdirection!
14:09:03LloreanMisdirection?

14:09:53LloreanCould you explain, I have no idea what you're saying.

14:10:34JdGordon:)
14:11:16JdGordonarg, the manual fixes for this is going to be annoying
14:11:43LloreanAnyway, I don't think "Settings" should be hidden under the current system menu. That's sorta pointless and just creates an extra level of depth to every single setting someone could want to change.
14:12:00JdGordonrasher: do you still have your script(?) to automatically take screenshots? we are going to need a new main menu screenshot from every target whatever the outcome is
14:12:03LloreanThe things in the system menu should be redistributed to other places, and the system menu inside the main menu should just vanish.
14:12:40LloreanYou don't actually *gain* anything by moving "Settings" into System as a further submenu.
14:12:44JdGordonthere is *no* other places....
14:13:40LloreanThen talk about it and come up with some, rather than just doing random other things that aren't beneficial because you can't come up with a way to do something that is beneficial
14:13:50LloreanYou don't *have* to change things. You can leave them as they are until a good idea is come up with.
14:14:55JdGordonthe difference between you and I is that I don't just talk
14:15:33LloreanAh yes, rather than actually justifying your changes, attack the people critical of them.
14:15:58JdGordonhttp://pastebin.com/SJAYftgZ is also an a version I could live with, move the settings *items* inside the system menu, order to be agreed on
14:16:22LloreanAnd see, that's better. That's something I'm less negative about, because it addresses some of my objections. Wow, that wasn't hard.
14:16:37LloreanGood job actually thinking about *why* someone might not like your idea, rather than just attacking them.
14:17:14LloreanJdGordon: So are you going to answer the question about why playlists were moved, or is that something you just refuse to talk about?

14:17:37LloreanThat's not an answer. It's a word, without even a context.

14:19:05LloreanAll that answers is that you think more targets have a button to do it than don't.
14:19:44LloreanSince that option's been there since *before* there were even targets that didn't have a button to do it, there should be more justification than "now that we have targets that don't have a button to resume playback, the menu option being more important should be moved further down"

14:40:16*Llorean thinks the order of the main menu should be discussed separately, especially since there are several ways to approach problems with it.
14:41:46[Saint]Can we just alphabetize it like I do with my builds?
14:41:58LloreanSee, there's a different approach.
14:42:00[Saint]I honestly thing trying to guess what a user uses more often is silly.
14:42:06[Saint]but, that's contentious I know.
14:42:15LloreanOne could also argue rather than prioritizing it from top to bottom, we could prioritize it by "distance from the starting point" since the menu wraps.
14:42:36[Saint]I just decided to alphabetize all my menus, to make it "sane"
14:42:38[Saint]works for me.
14:42:50LloreanOther than the main menu, alphabetizing it actually does seem best to me.
14:43:05[Saint]Yeah, sorry...I worded that incorrectly.
14:43:13[Saint]I didn't alphabetize the main menu.
14:43:16JdGordon[Saint]: programatically? or OCD?
14:43:19[Saint]only sub-menu items.
14:43:30[Saint]JdGordon: initially OCD.
14:43:32Llorean[Saint]: Well, this discussion is mainly about the main menu, apparently.
14:43:38[Saint]then, to make it easier for me to find things.
14:43:44 Quit T44 (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
14:43:48[Saint]I look at the menus and see *no* ordering.
14:43:59[Saint]initially I guess it was based on assumed usage.
14:44:03Xerionhow about settings menus with an on/off setting and amount settings, the on/off on top is most logical imo ;)
14:44:06[Saint]that seems to gave slipped over the years.
14:44:11Llorean[Saint]: I think a lot of it is more just ordered by date added.
14:44:14JdGordondoin it alphebetically any way other than programatically is a non-starter as it only works for english
14:44:19[Saint]Llorean: yeah.
14:44:52[Saint]JdGordon: Well, the default is English...so, I don't really see a problem with that.
14:45:03LloreanJdGordon: That reminds me, do we even have a programmatical way to alphabetize non-English characters in our code? Or are they just sorted by the value of their character?
14:45:06[Saint]I see your point though.
14:45:24[Saint]its not going to be any *less* sanely ordered for other languages though ;)
14:45:44JdGordonI assume we do, strcmp presumably "works" for non-english... not very cleverly thouhg
14:45:52LloreanAh.
14:45:58TorneLlorean: we just sort everything with C locale, basically
14:46:10Torneer
14:46:22Tornepossibly casefolding
14:46:26Tornebut not in any smart way :)
14:46:37Tornecollation tables to even sort en_US "correctly" are massive
14:46:41*Llorean wonders if it'd be possible to to add a little intelligence for menu sorting into the language files.
14:46:46LloreanIt wouldn't work for the file browser, of course.
14:46:55Tornesince even for english collation includes many accented chars
14:47:01[Saint]I left the main menu "as-is" (this seems like it will change slightly), but sub-menus I ordered alphabetically. This, to me, seems like the "sane" option. For non-English languages the ordering isn't going to be any more or less arbitrarily placed, so I think it would be more of a win than a loss.
14:47:12[Saint]But I think I'm bike-shedding at the present.
14:47:26[Saint]Alphabetical (in English) menus is something I'd like to see though.
14:47:48JdGordonalphabetical is a non-starter
14:47:49[Saint]If you know what a setting is called, but not *quite* where it is, it makes finding things in deep menus a LOT easier.
14:47:52n1si agree with JdGordon that if we go with alphabetical, we should do it programatically
14:48:01Llorean[Saint]: I think one of the bigger problems is the proliferation of submenus. Sometimes they make sense (all the equalizer settings are under equalizer) but other times they're a little harder to figure out (is what I want a "sound" or "playback" setting?)
14:48:24LloreanThere's plenty of ambiguity around in general.
14:48:51JdGordonand plenty of talk... which as usual is going to go nowhere if people insist on doing all or nothing
14:49:14[Saint]I think, although I know we'll all probably end up regretting it at one point or another in the near future ;), that if we're going to shake up the menu, we might as well "do it right".
14:49:14Xerionyeah put replaygain under sound already, next to the other options affecting volume ;)
14:49:25LloreanSettings->General Settings->System->Limits is not the chain of logic I'd follow to figure out how to solve the max entries in file browser issues, for example.
14:49:27[Saint]And get soemthing functional we can all (at least to an extent) agree on.
14:50:27JdGordon"agree".... us... HAHAHAH
14:50:43[Saint]"(to an extent)" ;)
14:50:48n1sprobalem is "right" differs a lot
14:50:56[Saint]I'm prepared to compromise...
14:50:56LloreanJdGordon: Well, *most* of us agreed Time & Date can be considered settings, at least to a practical degree.
14:51:06[Saint]n1s: this is true...
14:51:30JdGordonhttps://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AqzlOGMuRZ7OcDhCc2tLQVF4NlUzQmZ6M3FPVnZ5YkE&hl=en_US < from 4 years ago!
14:51:39[Saint]that's why I thought "Fuck it, the default lang is English UK, lets do it ordered alphabetically by English UK for all langs.
14:51:42[Saint]"
14:52:11[Saint]Other langs will just have a slightly different arbitrarily ordered menu structure ;)
14:52:11n1s[Saint]: which tbh sucks
14:52:18LloreanSomeone should just flatten the entire list of settings and post it in an email, then start from scratch in organizing them rather than looking at trying to rearrange based of the existing layout.
14:52:25[Saint]n17ikh: why exactly?
14:52:29[Saint]bah.
14:52:33[Saint]* n1s
14:52:49[Saint]The ordering presently is...non-existent.
14:52:56[Saint]there may as well be *some* order to it.
14:53:06*Llorean thinks the categorization is more problematical than the ordering.
14:53:07Xerionjust remove all the other languages, they are silly anyway ;)
14:53:09[Saint]even if it only really benefits one (the default) usergroup.
14:53:10JdGordonI agree... it is nice that we can say "3rd item from the top" regardless of language
14:53:12n1s[Saint]: i assuem you wouldn't propose such a chnage if you didn't use English...
14:53:14LloreanA list you can scroll through and see all the choices for that list.
14:53:18LloreanBut if your choice isn't *in* that list, you're lost.
14:53:46n1sjust changing the menus for everyone not using english arbitrarily will be annoying if they have learned where stuff is for example
14:53:47LloreanI do feel that the order shouldn't really change from language to language since, like JdGordon just mentioned, 3rd from the top is handy
14:53:54[Saint]n1s: I would, actualy...as English is the default.
14:54:39[Saint]n1s: And the menus sound like they're changing rather a lot anyway.
14:54:48[Saint]might as well get it "right" for one group.
14:54:49JdGordonalphabetical is a non-starter, enough no's to for sure get blocked so dont even bother wasting time discussing it
14:54:57n1s[Saint]: so you don't think that just jumbling the menus for everyone that is not is a problem?
14:55:11[Saint]they're already jumbled.
14:55:19[Saint]there's quite literally no ordering presently.
14:55:20JdGordonconsistantly though
14:55:31[Saint]consistently jumbled? ;)
14:55:35*[Saint] likes this...
14:55:36LloreanMaybe we should just add some code that counts each time a menu item is highlighted and each time it's "clicked" on.
14:55:42LloreanThen get people to send us their logs. :-P
14:55:49JdGordonthat opatch exists
14:56:02[Saint]Llorean: Menus that order based on individual usage would be nice.
14:56:11n1s[Saint]: but just jumbling them again makes it *worse* for people used to the particular jumble
14:56:19Llorean[Saint]: I wasn't thinking of ordering based on individual usage. Remember, I'm for static ordering. I was thinking to allow us to semi-optimize the over all order.
14:57:03n1sI would *rather* see full fricking customizable menus
14:57:33JdGordonfs#7809
14:57:35fs-bluebothttp://www.rockbox.org/tracker/task/7809 3Gather statistics about menu usage (and, possibly, reorder menu items) (patches, closed)
14:57:45[Saint]Llorean: Yeah, when you mentioned that I thought of allowing a settign that ordered the menus based on preference, but also allowed for reverting to the default in case language gets changed and a user gets lost in the menus so we can say "click down three times, select the fourth option, select foo...etc.
14:58:01[Saint]That's almost certainly NOT going to happen, though ;)
14:58:24Llorean[Saint]: Well, it's also helpful if a blind user is having issues getting voice to work, or under other circumstances.
14:58:35*[Saint] nods.
14:59:21JdGordonrearraning the settings menus has nothing to do with the main menu patch I and sideral would rather discuss
14:59:31[Saint]I can't say how happy I am that enough people for it to actually matter are interested in shaking up the menu now...its been a long time coming IMO.
14:59:38*Llorean agrees with JdGordon that this is unrelated to the email topic.
14:59:43[Saint]some new users seem to REALLY hate our menu.
15:00
15:00:01Llorean[Saint]: We've, as a group, been for rearranging the menu since before you probably ever heard of Rockbox.
15:00:13LloreanIt's just ridiculously, ridiculously hard to actually accomplish, as a group
15:00:36JdGordon[Saint]: count the people talking now... its not even close to the amount of people needed to actually definitly have something done
15:01:10Llorean[Saint]: Someone once did an html/css mockup of the Rockbox menu structure so that one could quickly and easily preview layout changes, if I recall.
15:01:10[Saint]Llorean: Yeah, I know. I've followed (and tracked back) the discussions. I tried to shake the menu up ~2 years ago or so but couldn't get enough people interested in it.
15:01:12JdGordonreally the only way this will happen is if someone says "im doing it, im not putting it up for discussion, im happy for contributions untill this date though"
15:01:21LloreanThere's been a lot of interesting attempts at making it possible to discuss and "try" layouts.
15:01:38[Saint]JdGordon: That would be *begging* for a reversion comit.
15:01:49[Saint]there's no way that would be "the way to achieve this"
15:01:51JdGordonnot necessarily
15:02:07JdGordonget enough commiters behind that subcommitee and it will be ok
15:02:21JdGordonput the final patch up for rsb vote
15:02:35JdGordonotherwise it will continue to never happen
15:02:39LloreanJdGordon: Yeah, I don't think that would work. Rather, I'd say, the only way it'd happen is if someone said "I'm going to accept suggestions from everyone, and then attempt to meet all their needs" and base all their work on other peoples' suggestions in a way that people realistically believe isn't them just trying to impose their personal desired menu on everyone else.
15:03:07[Saint]hence my problems with RaaA skin, "trying to please all".
15:03:12[Saint]It just *doesn't* work.
15:03:17LloreanJdGordon: An RSB vote and a subcommittee sounds very different from "I'm not putting it up for discussion, I'm doing it"
15:03:24[Saint]And takes months. (hospital not inclusive)
15:04:12JdGordonLlorean: indeed, rsb+comitte is a more democratic way to do it
15:04:17LloreanYes.
15:04:22[Saint]Llorean: Yes, I agree. Initially it sounded like "fuck you guys...I'm doing it!". An RSB vote once there's a reasonable mockup for the suggested layout is much nicer.
15:04:31LloreanAgreed.
15:04:35[Saint]And a lot liess likely to be reverted on the spot :P
15:05:18JdGordonthe rsb probably isnt even needed. they dont have the authority (by design) here
15:05:26LloreanYeah, I don't think the RSB is needed.
15:06:00JdGordongetting the right people on the committee will be a fun job
15:06:01JdGordonanyone with strong ideas should be banned :)
15:06:06JdGordon(that precludes me also)
15:06:06[Saint]Doesn't the RSb have the ultimate authority over *everything* Rb related?
15:06:17Llorean[Saint]: Yes and no.
15:06:19JdGordonyes and no
15:06:38[Saint]heh, snap.
15:06:54*sideral thinks the time spent in this discussion would be better spent creating a customizable menu structure, configurable with a Lua script.
15:06:54Llorean[Saint]: The RSB really has the ultimate authority over arbitration. It shouldn't make decisions, but after one's been made if it causes a problem, they should fix it.
15:06:57sideralThen everyone could customize the menus at his own pleasure
15:07:23sideralNo need to provide "sane" defaults, for someone's definition of sane :)
15:07:32[Saint]sideral: Even if that happens, there still needs to be a sane default.
15:07:53[Saint]as not everyong will *want* to customize the menu.
15:08:10Llorean[Saint]: When I was on it, I spent a lot of time trying to make sure arguments I wasn't involved in reached a compromise so that it was less likely to ever be needed.
15:08:13[Saint]So I don;t agree that costom ordering eliminates the need for a sane default menu.
15:08:28sideralthat default could be the status quo, eliminating this discussion entirely
15:08:31JdGordon3.10/4.0 is due october... that gives plenty of time for a committee to do its work
15:09:00[Saint]I was just thinking that this seems well timed for a nice new menu for the next release.
15:09:10[Saint]...great minds, etc. ;)
15:09:16LloreanLike I said, I think a good starting point would just be to list every setting name in an email, and say "okay guys, categorize these" without looking at the existing menu structure at all.
15:09:47LloreanSee how our community thinks options divide up. We don't have to treat is as a vote, just information gathering.
15:09:47JdGordonall 200+ of them :)
15:10:21[Saint]Close to 300 on some targets iirc.

15:10:41[Saint]It sounds a lot easier than it is...
15:10:56[Saint]its *really* daunting looking at all the menu items in one list.
15:11:13[Saint]Not impossible, but daunting.
15:12:00*JdGordon puts his hand up as eager to help if others do the same
15:12:14*[Saint] also.
15:12:35[Saint]A collaborative page on google docs would make this a LOT easier.
15:12:52[Saint]can se dump all the menu items to a list with some scripty magic?
15:13:11[Saint]s/we/someone more scripty than I ;)/
15:13:13JdGordonthat is partially doable thanks to gcc... /me did that once
15:13:31JdGordonLlorean: are you going to put your hand up too?
15:13:47[Saint]A few of us working on it at the one time could get it done in a reasonable period of time.
15:14:00[Saint]I couldn;t do it tonight, but tomorrow I'm free mostly all day.
15:14:03LloreanJdGordon: Sorry, I was over at the forums responding to something, gimme a sec to read what I missed.
15:14:38*[Saint] assumes pixelma will want to be involved in this, so pings her.
15:15:02LloreanJdGordon: Yeah, if we actually started with a goal to reorganize the menu structure, with a deadline for submissions, I'd do what I could to make sure I had my own proposed structure, as well as try to polish other ideas.
15:15:09[Saint](I've heard her mention "missing out" on suck discussions, this is my effort to make sure that doesn't happen here)
15:15:14[Saint]*such
15:15:18LloreanSo yes, my hand up.
15:15:34JdGordonno "own proposals"
15:15:43JdGordoneveryone goes in with a clean slate
15:16:09LloreanI'm confused about what you want, then.
15:16:45LloreanEveryone's going to have their own opinion about how the menu layout should be. The goal should be then to reach a compromise on it. Clean slate or no, we're all going to have opinions.
15:17:13JdGordonyes, but not initially... everyone goes in with an open mind, first step is figure out the steps, next will be categorising each setting
15:17:18[Saint]Llorean: If I'm not mistaken, collaborating on a google docs list of all menu items, so we can see if we agree on classification.
15:17:43LloreanJdGordon: Yeah, I'll agree to keep my mind as open as possible. But there's things like, I think "longer lists are better than more categories" because categories are where you make an assumption on behalf of the user.
15:17:50[Saint]some menu items *are* indeed poorly placed. This needs to be addressed first.
15:17:53LloreanOther people think "lists should never be longer than 6 or so items, so they fit on most screens"
15:17:54[Saint]then ordering.
15:18:09JdGordonone thing at a time
15:18:11[Saint]Llorean: That's just simply not possible for some lists.
15:18:19[Saint]"Sound Settings" for example.
15:18:35Llorean[Saint]: Yeah, but the goal in some reorderings has been to, where possible, keep lists short.
15:18:57LloreanBut yes, a strong first step is to collaborate on everyone saying what top level category, if any, they think a setting belongs in.
15:19:00[Saint]the only way we could do that sanely is dropping half of Rb's functions ;)
15:19:05LloreanThen we pound that out until we've got top level categories
15:19:06JdGordonthough that said, we should figure out rules before we start, list lengths, positions of settings (enable/disable should always be above configuration details fr the setting perhaps)
15:19:10LloreanThen we discuss if we need subcategories.
15:19:20LloreanThen once we're out of subcategories, we hammer out ordering within each layer.
15:20:07LloreanJdGordon: I think list lengths can come later (since global categorizing is somewhat independent of it anyway). I do agree that enable/disable should always come before parameters.
15:20:15*JdGordon will start writing up a proposal for the mailing list
15:20:31JdGordonunless someone else wants to do that and I'll figure out how to nuke the code out of settings_menu.c
15:20:50LloreanI can post on the ML
15:21:29JdGordonjust make it clear the final diff will go up for vote and people shold either get involved or stay out of the way
15:22:03[Saint]with a slight emphasis on that last part.
15:22:11LloreanYeah
15:22:19[Saint]We don't want any "I didn't see it, and I disagree with X Y and Z"
15:22:26JdGordonpeople with "just change this" should stay away

15:37:28[Saint]definitely

15:37:42[Saint]its a "major change" if ever there was one.

15:40:46LloreanJdGordon: Okay, I added approximate timeline, with a clear stated goal of including it in the release, and an idea that we vote on a small team (3 or 5 people) at the start to arbitrate / make decisions at each deadline point to enforce that the thing moves forward.

15:46:45JdGordonwhy the android talk now though?
15:46:57God_Eaterit's worthy of 4.0 I presume?
15:46:57LloreanBasically, if the problem is different servers building them, only have one until we can solve that, and move on with getting the build out there to users. :)
15:46:59[Saint]kugel: yeah, but as long as its done from Google Docs I can do it from anywhere.
15:47:08God_EaterLlorean: well, it's not JUST that
15:47:11LloreanJdGordon: Yeah, if we're doing 4.0 now, I'd *really* also want to have Android for it.
15:47:12God_Eaterbut that is part of the problem
15:47:16[Saint]Cabbie work limits me to being at my home PC
15:47:24LloreanGod_Eater: Yeah, but if it's part of the problem, it still needs to be addressed. :) Tackle one thing at a time.
15:47:31God_Eaterthe other problem is the build system needs adapting to handle the extra steps the android build needs
15:47:34kugelLlorean: nothing essentially. we discussed how to deal it many times, and always agreed on the same thing. it's just not implemented
15:47:53JdGordonLlorean: well, different people need working on that. I also dont see rockbox being released as making sense unless it goes on the market

15:48:06kugelin fact, only the swedes can bring it further at this point (w.r.t. to market, downloadable current builds)
15:48:11God_EaterJdGordon: I think that's a waste of time
15:48:21JdGordoni agree
15:48:52LloreanI think it's "released" when we make it available as a "release" 4.0 .apk
15:48:58LloreanWhich, there's no reason we couldn't put on the market.
15:48:58God_Eaterwe need some infrastructure people who aren't "the swedes" :)
15:49:07kugelGod_Eater: wrong. the build system is doing android builds since the devcon

16:31:57lolmausHi. I would like to use a Cyrillic font. I've got one, but it seems only to be used in the menu. The Now Playing screen uses some other font. How do i change it?

16:34:14*JdGordon gets the low-hangingfruit categorised
16:36:40lolmausJdGordon, how do i do that? Maybe there are cyrillic themes already?
16:37:58JdGordonthemes.rockbox.org might have some. otherwise figure out which theme you are using and edit the .rockbox/wps/<theme name>.wps file and look for a line with %Fl()
16:42:31lolmausJdGordon, yay!
16:43:27lolmausJdGordon, there are some parameters for %Fl...
16:45:33JdGordonchange the one that loooks like the font name to the one you want

16:56:18lolmausWhat is the shortcut to return to WPS from the main menu? It's kinda inconvenient to browse for the WPS menu item
16:56:45LloreanIt depends on your player, and should be in the manual.
16:56:57lolmausI see
16:57:15lolmausWhen browsing current playlist contents, is there a way to set a song play next after current?
16:57:37LloreanReorder the playlist.
16:57:56lolmausLlorean, that's kinda very inconvenient
16:58:20LloreanI don't understand what you're asking then. The playlist is, literally, the list of songs to play.
16:58:25LloreanIn the order they will be played.
16:58:58lolmausLlorean, i want to do it with a single menu item, not with moving the song all the way up manually
16:59:06LloreanYou can view the file browser or whatever, and queue songs to be played next, or even set another playlist to play next. But they'll always also show up next in the playlist.
16:59:23lolmausAlso, i might not know where current position is: above or below
17:00
17:00:04LloreanIf you're just picking a single song to play next, just browse to it and choose "insert next", "queue next" or "play next" from the context menu depending on how you wish to have it treated.
17:00:50lolmausLlorean, that applies to browsing files, but not playlist items.
17:01:07LloreanYou can't have a song playable in the playlist that also can't be browsed to.
17:01:11LloreanWhich is why I said you can just browse to it.
17:01:22lolmausOh
17:01:49LloreanThe playlist list is about organizing the order of upcoming songs.
17:02:07LloreanIf you want a song to play next, you put it next in the playlist, since that's what it is.
17:02:21lolmausLlorean, how do i browse to a song from a playlist? I don't see a corresponding context menu item
17:02:32LloreanNo, I just meant browse to it the normal way.
17:02:38LloreanLike, you do know where it is on your player, don't you?
17:03:09lolmausLlorean, oh... But it's a lot of clicks. Is there a short way to browse to currently playing song at least?
17:03:24LloreanFrom the WPS, just click "select" if you have "follow playlist" enabled.
17:04:35Tornehaving a move to next seems reasonable, tbh :)
17:04:49Torneadding it to the playlist again is gonna get it played twice.

17:06:15lolmausTorne, ah! You see my point ^__^
17:06:20LloreanTorne: Yeah, a quick way to rearrange the playlist would be handy. Basically offering the same insert "next, last, (no second word)" functionality but as "move" instead would cover it nicely
17:06:30Lloreanlolmaus: What point? You were asking how to do it, not saying something should be changed.

17:19:14Torneunfortunately the clip is short on buttons
17:19:44Lloreanlolmaus: It should work in the file browser, and most other setting menus too.
17:19:54lolmausWell, there's a home button and it returns to the root of the main menu. I wish it returned to the WPS
17:20:07LloreanBut the Clip+ is really short on buttons, and the typical button for returning to the WPS, Play/Pause, must be used for navigation instead.
17:20:51LloreanIf the home button were used to return to the WPS it'd be a lot harder to get to the menus from the WPS, typically, whereas it'd only save a small amount of up/down movement (to select the resume playback option) in place
17:21:42lolmausLlorean, Home and Off do same action — return to the main menu
17:21:46LloreanTo be fair, if the first press returned to the main menu, and the second to the WPS, that could work, but I don't think anyone working on the port really considered that.
17:21:51Lloreanlolmaus: No, they really don't.
17:22:00Lloreanlolmaus: Off stops playback, Home returns to the main menu without stopping playback.
17:22:09lolmausOh
17:22:51lolmausAnd after i press Off, Home+Select won't work. :/
17:23:16LloreanWorks fine on my Clip+
17:24:11lolmausLlorean, it only works if playback is going on. When stopped, it won't.
17:24:26LloreanAs I said, it works fine on mine.
17:24:37LloreanYou said "after off" which stops it, so that's what I just tried.
17:25:05lolmausLlorean, you quoted the manual and it says that it only works when there's an audio file playing, and that's how my Clip+ behaves...
17:26:05LloreanIt's not how my clip+ behaves.
17:26:28LloreanThough mine's a little older build, so if they changed it I may have missed it. And objected to it if I'd spotted it.
17:26:38LloreanSince that's not how other targets treat the resume playback feature.
17:27:19lolmausThank you for your support Llorean
17:31:04lolmausMy Clip+ battery seems to last longer after being rockboxed. Is that an illusion or Rockbox really saves battery?
17:31:12LloreanOn many players Rockbox does save battery
17:31:39LloreanI really don't know if the Clip+ is one of them (I never used it without Rockbox, for example) but it wouldn't be surprising.
17:36:36Torneas long as we have sufficient knowledge about the hardware to manage teh clock speed and turn unused peripherals off (which is not the case on everything) then we are usually more efficient; our codecs are generally better :)
