#MetaBrainz Meeting 2017-10-09
For this week I don’t have much to report, but during the summit week, I completed dockerizing acousticbrainz
AB-297(thanks iliekcomputers for the help). Other than that, added some GCI tasks for CB. Also started some work on CB-270.
This week I thought about form validation, which we need to finish off the new entity editing forms. I’ve started putting together a validator for the publisher form, which should be done soon.
This validator can be run client side and server side, and should improve server reliability and allow us to give better feedback to users on the editing form.
After this, I’ll write validators for the remaining entities. Once that’s done, we’ll test and do a new site release. And then I’ll be moving in to writing the new relationship editor.
I’m traveling to college today so will probably not make it to the meeting. This week, I made a couple minor fixes in the
metabrainz.org site, did some code review for AB and LB, addressed some code review in LB for my PRs.
currently on borrowed mobile internet at my mother’s cousin’s house!
I’ve been finishing up the debussy and i’ll be looking at instruments, but I probably won’t be online much since they have limited internet (mobile broadband) and I don’t want to use it up for the month for them
when I come home I’m looking at flutes and more.
I attended the summit, worked with Rob and Ben on a plan to try to get BB ready for the masses, and investigated ways to improve the reliability of the BookBrainz site code.
More on the plan as we get settled.
Next up is working to dockerize the server.
In the meantime, I’m recovering from the same cold and traveling, so it’ll be a light week.
So I had a wonderful fulfilling (lots of gelato and chocolates) summit, thank you for that
Just got back this afternoon.
Added a GCI task for design, might add a few more in upcoming days. Might also add myself as a mentor, still debating that one.
Other than that, this week I look forward to *eating Freso 's head * to set up JIRA for our design component. and working on the artist page!
MBS-9353: Do not show collections or user profiles to people not logged in
A number of variants to undoing this hiding was discussed, and the meeting finalised on only hiding collection descriptions, user bios, and user websites of limited editor accounts for non-logged in users (behind a “log in to see this, because of spam” message).
MBS-9505: time period to edit your own entries
Some discussion about whether to do 1 week, 1 day, 12 hours, or some other time frame. In the end, 24 hours was agreed on.
Some additional discussion ensued with questions about possible tasks and nudges of specific community members to contribute to the task suggestions.
