01:13 fdobridge: <a​irlied> got the dota2 intro video, then it exploded
01:17 fdobridge: <E​sdras Tarsis> are your patches only in the local tree?
01:22 fdobridge: <a​irlied> I've pushed some of them into a branch in the nouvelles tree, but I'm not really at the stage where I need any feedback from others, since it's clearly broken
02:31 fdobridge: <E​sdras Tarsis> I know, I just wanted to read the code
06:11 fdobridge: <a​irlied> got the non-gsp to get to the dota2 menu, but lots of traps in the kernel, I think gsp will just blow away the context
06:19 fdobridge: <a​irlied> also lols got glxgears on zink on nvk
12:33 fdobridge: <M​ohamexiety> hey! so I intend to join GSoC this year and was looking around for projects. given my interests/skillset lies closer to HW/low level SW I checked out the mesa projects (https://www.x.org/wiki/SummerOfCodeIdeas/) among other organizations and found this entry for nouveau. I am curious -- is this still available? it seemed a bit weird given NVK now exists so I thought the project idea would be more about milestones/contributions there rathe

12:39 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> yeah. In the end those are just (sometimes heavily outdated) proposals. Maybe we should move this list into a more "area where projects would be acceptable" kind of thing actually.. oh well.
12:40 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> But yeah, if you want to work on NVK it'd be best to talk if @gfxstrand about. In case Faith doesn't have the capacity to mentor (and I don't even know if she is registered as a GSoC mentor) I can do the formal mentoring part or also the actual mentoring
12:45 fdobridge: <M​ohamexiety> yeah I'd definitely love to contribute here. depends on the project/skill requirements though as I wouldn't say I am very good/seasoned haha, I was looking at GSoC as a learning opportunity so I would rather not be a burden.
12:45 fdobridge: <J​., Echo (she) 🇱🇹> Who is Faith?
12:52 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> @gfxstrand is Faith
13:06 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> yeah that's fine. For NVK the main thing happening atm is like adding support for more extensions, and some or easy to add, some are more complicated. We'll find something you'd be able to work on and go from there
13:12 fdobridge: <E​sdras Tarsis> suggestion: KHR_maintenance2
13:12 fdobridge: <E​sdras Tarsis> useful for zink and dxvk
13:14 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> isn't there a MR for that already or already done?
13:55 fdobridge: <J​., Echo (she) 🇱🇹> Only an issue: <https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/nouveau/mesa/-/issues/27>
13:57 fdobridge: <J​., Echo (she) 🇱🇹> Older DXVK versions require that extension
15:37 fdobridge: <M​ohamexiety> alright then, thanks! is there some sort of a qualification task/something similar I could look into these days? right now I am going through the repo and the codebase
15:38 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> I think the most formal qualification task is to submit anything to a fdo upstream project
15:39 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> there is also this weirdo "willing to blog weekly" req, but.. ehhh... I wouldn't want to block an application because the student feels uncomfortable doing that
15:40 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> post/rant randomly on mastodon or don't.. I don't care 😄
15:40 fdobridge: <M​ohamexiety> got it, I'll look around then. thanks!
15:40 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> anyway, the reqs are listed here: https://www.x.org/wiki/GSoCApplication/
15:41 fdobridge: <M​ohamexiety> yeah I don't mind blogging, I actually enjoy writing. (also have some experience -- https://chipsandcheese.com/2022/09/18/hot-chips-34-amds-instinct-mi200-architecture/ and currently working on another piece)
15:41 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> ahh, cool
16:01 fdobridge: <🌺​ ¿butterflies? 🌸> At some companies it's willing to write a daily report 😬
16:02 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> ah yeah.. I don't work for those
16:02 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> bi-weekly is already too much for me 😄
16:29 HdkR: Huh, writing a weekly blog is interesting. Wonder if that is because people put their head down for weeks and don't come up for air frequently enough. So they basically end up ghosting the world.
16:32 HdkR: Or skipping entirely because self-discipline is hard
18:25 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> to me it feels a bit arbitrary tbh
18:25 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> the student is supposed to learn marketing skills in such a program
18:25 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> the student is supposed to learn marketing communication skills in such a program (edited)
18:26 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> the student is supposed to learn "... communication" skills in such a program (edited)
18:26 fdobridge: <k​arolherbst🐧🦀> ehh.. there is a term for it ...
22:30 fdobridge: <a​irlied> @phomes you got time to rebase the indirect count and cond render MRs?
