#MetaBrainz Meeting 2017-12-11
more students have done instrument tasks!
so far they’ve also done rather good work on their research!
this has kept me occupied with also adding instruments!
on Saturday was my birthday! yaay!
I’ve also found time to add some releases (notes booklets with attached cd’s)
and still working on the rock furore mess.
trying to keep up with kids and their enthusiasm!
also today I was away picking up my wretched computer, all fixed. yay!
I’ve been working with chhavi_, who has put together some great wireframes for BB. Things are progressing quite well there.
I’ve also done some prelim work on dockerizing, which is going slowly because I have no idea what I’m doing, but it’ll get there.
upgraded the Cb editor to SimpleMDE, and got it merged, which is my first significant contribution to open source!
also came up with the idea of language detection and implemented it
thanks to excellent advice from anshuman73
anshuman73 is trying to test that rn
i’m going to be working on many non-coding tasks this week
also experimenting with the SQL charts thing
all in all committed to making this week a huge success and being more productive

made a gist with what I think should be included:
@Freso pointed out https://musicbrainz.org/doc/How_to_Contribute (and that it needs updating), @iliekcomputers noted that all GitHub/code projects have a
@samj1912 noted that he «[does]n’t think think [he] would watch a video about that» but would read a wiki page and also pointed to https://whatcanidoformozilla.org/ as a possible way of achieving something like this. @chhavi showed that there’s also https://whatcanidoforfedora.org/en/ - @samj1912 suggests using http://whatcanidofor.metabrainz.org/
There was some talk of doing it as a GCI task, or as a series of GCI tasks, but it would depend on one or more mentors picking it up and formulating tasks for it.
