#MetaBrainz Meeting 2017-06-26
This week I worked on the PR for using direct database for place entity. Updated the PR to use the mbdata project
Also, worked on showing external links and related place on place pages on CB.
There were also a few misses in the ORM work which I fixed this week.
will try and fix the errors incoming in mb setup
MB User Survey
Decided to release the user survey on July 5th. Uncertainty of who to write the announcement blog post though.
@Leo_Verto was suggested, but not confirmed. Will review again next meeting.
@Rob asking for an update on anti-spam measures. What has been writted, what has been merged, what has been run.
@bitmap noted that some of the spam deterring measures had been merged, though not yet released. @yvanzo remarked that spam account removal scripts would likely be ready to run this week and that some more spam deterring PRs were awaiting review.
@Rob noted that we haven’t received any more DMCA take-down requests from Google. @bitmap notes this is probably due to user collections already being blocked in
@Rob said that he’ll collect more information and @zas is coming up with more ideas and that they should circle the wagons afterwards and plan the next move(s).
@Freso asks whether the weekly Picard meetings are still relevant, as nobody showed up to the last one (Tuesday, 20th of June).
Agreed to put Picard meetings on hold for now. Discussions can either be had on the Monday meetings or we can decide to organise Picard meetings again at a later date.
On behalf of users on the forum,
@reosarevok asks whether we have any plan for classical.
@Quesito outlined a plan:
Form group, if interest
@Rob and @reosarevok agreed to have a talk during the week to get something more concrete, but basically it still seems what is wanted is improved UX rather than schema changes.
