07:28 simmel       pdurbin: heh, everyone in the .edu sector uses shibboleth = )
07:29 simmel       pdurbin: Esp. if you
07:29 simmel       pdurbin: Esp. if you want people at other instutions to get access to your openstack
07:30 simmel       pdurbin: You'd just Shib your "cloud" and setup which universities/departments to allow in and they'll get access (and even filter on if they are employees or have a special attribute)
07:31 simmel       pdurbin: For web auth, Shibboleth is clearly superiour. Set up once, use forever.
07:31 simmel       (and with everyone)
14:15 pdurbin      simmel: ok, good to know edu's use shibboleth. thanks
14:54 pdurbin      chatting about changing our build-a-vm wrapper script to call `virt-install` directly rather than `koan`. that's what koan seems to do ultimately, anyway, but it limits the parameters you can pass. we could stop using our patched version: https://github.com/fasrc/cobbler/commit/5c54113
18:01 pdurbin      crimsonfubot: lucky monitorama boston
18:01 crimsonfubot pdurbin: http://monitorama.com/
18:02 pdurbin      crimsonfubot: lucky sensu monitoring
18:02 crimsonfubot pdurbin: http://www.sonian.com/cloud-monitoring-sensu/
18:02 pdurbin      crimsonfubot: lucky easybuild python
18:02 crimsonfubot pdurbin: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/easybuild
18:03 pdurbin      whorka: ^^
18:04 whorka       thanks pdurbin. we'll need a replacement for Opsview most likely.
18:29 pdurbin      agoddard: omg i love your internal openstack codenames!
18:51 miah         hi
18:52 pdurbin      hi
19:19 pdurbin      ah cool. the script i mentioned is up already: https://github.com/sjoeboo/vm_builder/blob/master/vm_builder.rb
19:45 pdurbin      hmm, "cli scripts for using Request Tracker" -- https://github.com/fasrc/rtcli ... this is new...
19:46 pdurbin      dotplus: ^^
19:58 dotplus      pdurbin: hm? what am I looking at here? The README is empty. At first glance, this is a wrapper/pretty printer for rt's cli? perhaps I need to look harder but I don't see what this is trying to achieve.
20:00 pdurbin      dotplus: that's what it looks like to me too
20:01 pdurbin      i didn't realize https://github.com/jabrcx was working on this
20:02 pdurbin      anyway, might be useful to someone
20:02 pdurbin      i certainly don't plan to publish my fugly perl scripts that do similar things :)
20:04 pdurbin      soon i'll need to keep track of both rt tickets and redmine. i haven't worked with the redmine api yet
20:11 dotplus      our scripted rt usage is using the rest api or the perl api directly. $dev & I are the only ones using the cli, and that not heavily.
20:13 agoddard     pdurbin: awww :)
20:13 agoddard     guess what falcon is named after?
20:19 pdurbin      agoddard: some boat?
20:20 agoddard     pdurbin: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Falcon_Scott < kept a good log :0
20:20 agoddard     :)
20:21 pdurbin      i like logs :)
20:21 pdurbin      dotplus: do you use http://search.cpan.org/dist/RT-Client-REST/ ?
20:24 pdurbin      "Xpra is 'screen for X': it allows you to run X programs, usually on a remote host, direct their display to your local machine, and then to disconnect from these programs and reconnect from the same or another machine, without losing any state." -- http://xpra.org
20:49 pdurbin      wow, it actually works
20:49 pdurbin      i sure hope my boss make a blog post
20:50 pdurbin      no need for NX (nomachine)... no need for VNC... xpra ftw!
20:50 whorka       hmm, rootless remote gui application exec with disconnect/reconnect. that's been on our feature request list for a while.
20:51 pdurbin      whorka: you need xpra
20:51 pdurbin      no client!
20:51 pdurbin      well, no special client
20:51 pdurbin      just works
20:51 larsks       xpra: "This project is in deep hibernation; I haven't had time to devote for several years now.
20:51 whorka       I wonder if the Windows version needs a separate X server or if its built in.
20:51 larsks       "
20:51 larsks       Scared o' that...
20:52 pdurbin      meh!
20:52 pdurbin      ;)
20:52 larsks       Ah, wait, that's for partiwm, which links to xpra.org...
20:52 whorka       larsks you're looking at the project it was forked from, for that reason
20:53 larsks       Yus, had just noticed that :)
21:07 dotplus      pdurbin: yes we use that.
21:14 pdurbin      dotplus: ok, cool. i was using it for a bit but it's faster to hit the api once with `rt` for my use case
21:14 pdurbin      or something :)
21:17 raprasad     anyone go to the CS50 fair today?
21:17 raprasad     forgot about it..there's about 10 minutes left
21:17 pdurbin      nope :(
21:18 pdurbin      where's my racktables api? https://projects.cs50.net/project/97/build-a-restful-api-for-racktables-at-philip-durbin/
21:19 pdurbin      whorka: i should clarify... xpra is for your users for whom "screen for X" means something :)
21:24 * dotplus    hands xpra.org to former-coworker @cmu.edu
21:39 pdurbin      :)
21:40 pdurbin      now i just need to think of a reason to run an x11 app on my home server...
21:40 pdurbin      hmm...
21:40 pdurbin      thinking...
