#MetaBrainz Meeting 2017-11-20
This week, after the discussion we had on Artist Overview page, I updated the mockups. More like redo it, since we are now making it more overview-y.
We have had some amazing feedback so far. Especially CatQuest yvanzo zas and few other MB community members
I also wrote a blog explaining our entities in simplest way possible. It’s a narrative by a singer version of me in an alternate reality
Here is the link:
Apart from that I set up a MusicBrainz Server for front-end development with help of samj1912 and bitmap . They were both very patient.
At one time I might or might not have asked, “okay so how do I open my text editor?”
Last week I finished and merged a new plugin for BrainzBot: An improved brain plugin which is obviously called metabrain.
There are four new commands you can use:
!remember <thing> = <other thing> - Save something in the bot memory
!recall <thing> - Make the bot print “other thing”
!forget <thing> - Remove “thing” from the bot’s memory
!braindump - List everything currently in the bot’s memory
The plugin is also enabled in both
#meb and #mb but if you just want to try it out, feel free to play around in # after the meeting brainzbot
Also thanks to samj1912 for reviewing all the relevant PR even though he had a super busy week!
This week, it’s just one ticket.
Based on feedback, we are trying to make the overview page, an actual overview. We are still figuring it out. Feedback is welcome
Note: People joining the discussion now, can jump to read comments from my ticket headlined ROUND-2.
INST-330: Rename “guitars” instrument
https://tickets.metabrainz.org/browse/INST-330 is kinda blocked right now.
Well, inasmuch as we’d need to move all the all uses somewhere else before we can merge/remove it.
Do people think it is ok to move these all to guitar and if so, can we make a bot for it?
An informal vote was had with 4½ votes for (incl. both STYLE and INST leads), ½ a neutral vote, and 0 votes against, with the caveat that the bot should make sure that moved
guitars should keep an “instrument credit” of ‘guitars’ and that guitars that already have an instrument credit should not be touched by the bot at all.
