wxl updated subscribers of T192: Add 2fa to web portal .

Possibly a nice infrastructure item for @teward. I will point out, though, that the webserver is on a different host. We had originally wanted to get that under Canonical's purview but that project stalled somewhere along the way. That might even get us SSO and 2FA should come with that. Or maybe we should just move it over to our normal server? I'm not sure why that's never happened.

wxl added a comment to T189: change name of Openbox config.

As an initial test with a recent daily, I emptied $HOME/.config/lxqt-rc.xml, ran openboc --reconfigure to get back to default behavior, then renamed the file to rc.xml and reconfigured again and we were back to normal. So that looks like a good sign. That does not test the behavior with the change, but that's a start.

wxl added a comment to T190: update Calamares Apport hook for file check status.

One other note: as of right now, the default result is skip. That means that systems that were upgraded from older versions before the file check will say skip. This is clearly not right. I'm going to commit a change to make it unknown.

It may be true (looking at the commit) that this may be a part of ALL bug reports, so this may not be necessary. Needs to be double checked.

wxl added a comment to D103: New lxqt-build-tools version 0.8.0.

We should probably make a little less of a fuss about copyright going forward. Kubuntu, like us, has a tendency to package from upstream and rely less on the merges. Asking there, they say that ideally the copyrights would get updated in those cases, but in practice, no. For packages not regulated to a flavor packageset, even where packaging changes are made to resolve merge conflicts, I think it's uncommon to see copyright changes. That said, I don't think we need to worry about this. Sorry for all the hassle, @apt-ghetto.

I think it's wise to document it somewhere and Discourse is as good as any. However, I think my little solution needs a more organized format if we were to use for the purposes of documentation. I guess I can probably edit that post and we can call it good.

Yeah, basically anything that relates to development, contributing, and the like should go into our wiki here and everything else should relate to LXDE, which we won't be supporting post April 2021. Rather than deleting it, converting it into an LXDE rather than a Lubuntu wiki, will allow LXDE users (that we no longer support) to still see the info. Looks good. Thanks @guiverc!

wxl added a comment to T124: figure out replacement for TeleIRC.

One thing to note: Matterbridge, unlike TeleIRC, depends upon numeric group IDs for Telegram. This is good because it reduces ambiguity and prevents weird things from happening (perhaps why Lubuntu Arabic wasn't working with TeleIRC? Still don't know) but it's apparently a royal pain to figure out those IDs. @teward had to do some API hacking to get it set up and will document it soon.
