Bug Description


For Linaro, it would be very helpful if we could schedule our private rooms using the summit system. This would allow us to schedule private meetings in private rooms and make sure they do not conflict with normal tracks.

Please contact me for more information.

Said another way, I need to attend private and public sessions. Summit will currently schedule the public sessions based upon my availability but will not know of the private meetings and thus I'll be double booked. We want to prevent this.

Here are some initial thoughts regarding implementation.

Based in all subscribers having a launchpad account, or ubuntu SSO at the _very least_

Needs private boolean

Needs to hide room from general display unless:
  Logged in User is subscribed to a session.
   -> Then display that session, and only that session in the room for a given slot.

There needs to be an adhoc session creation form... Currently done in admin UI which is error prone.
   -> Need to select users which are subscribed
   -> Need to be able to select "private meeting" or not. (there is already a private attribute for a meeting model).
   -> Perhaps re-implement BoF support.. (grep for references)

Care needs to be taken here about what a private meeting means. If the attendees are private, then
we can't avoid collisions if we can't let track leads know the attendees.

James, could summit just throw the required participants not available and then the track lead would need to go talk to that person if they need more info?

My MP adds the ability to define a room as a private room, and hides private rooms from view.

Trunk now has support for private rooms in both the database and the UI, we just need to make sure that autoscheduling ang scheduling conflicts take the private statuses into account and don't do anything unexpected.
