[20:01:05] <brada> so are our cache directories supposed to be temporary?
[20:01:27] <brada> I know we purge them on startup but i dont know if we are planning on being more inteligent about that or what
[20:02:29] <brada> if they are supposed to be just tmp directories how come we dont use mkdtemp
[20:02:33] <brada> and friends
[20:04:07] <fuzzie> because mkdtemp isn't available everywhere and our cache directories can get too huge for /tmp anyway
[20:04:37] <fuzzie> but yes, we use the cache dir for temporaries only
[20:10:48] <brada> what about temporaries makes size an issue?
[20:10:58] <brada> just curious
[20:13:35] <fuzzie> how do you mean?
[20:13:43] <fuzzie> i mean, we put lots of stuff in it, /tmp often can't contain that much stuff.
[20:16:13] <fuzzie> see also discussion at top of http://log.usecode.org/gemrblog.php?log=21Mar2013
[20:16:42] <-- Yoshimo has left IRC (Quit: Yoshimo)
[20:16:55] <fuzzie> (where I argue it would be 'nicer' to put it in a temp dir somewhere by default)
[20:18:55] <fuzzie> which I think is only recent relevant discussion.
[20:19:39] <fuzzie> i mean, re-reading what you asked, you mean 'what's special about /tmp which makes size an issue?' maybe, in which case: sometimes people configure it (or /, containing it) as a different partition with limited space.
[20:25:42] <brada> i see what you mean
[20:25:45] <brada> thank you
[20:41:18] <fuzzie> also if we're going to maybe move issues to github, we should probably take a backup of the sf issue tracker before they force-migrate us anyway..
[20:41:36] <brada> yes
[20:42:14] <brada> i guess ill try what ed said about the cache dir then
[20:42:34] <brada> last thing i need to do before the minimal test works on mac again
[20:45:39] <brada> tomprince: can you change the minimal test command for mac to: open -a gemrb/gemrb.app ../tests/minimal
