Colour Blindness Awareness Monday
Last meeting: 2021-08-09
Next meeting: 2021-09-13
I was on vacation for 2.5 weeks, it was very nice, although very warm in Barcelona
last week I slowly got back into the swing of things - checking emails, reviewing PRs. With lucifer we released some new versions of CB, including some long-time pending translations
I blogged about the AB similarity feature, nice to see people excited about that!
I reported a bug in MB’s oauth code to @bitmap and fixed AB/LB/CB in some specific cases
I set up a PR to upgrade sentry to a newer version (this should go out tomorrow)
I too was on vacation most of August, and so didn’t get around to doing much work. That was quite nice.
I did keep a close eye on @akashgp09’s project as he successfully finished the GSoC coding period.
After some thorough testing, the last fixes are being implemented now and the project should be ready for beta this week. Congrats !
Since I came back, I started slow with catching up with the many PR reviews that were awaiting.
This includes a new major feature: a notifications system for BookBrainz that prabal —last year’s GSoC student working with BB— started working on.
I also worked on a few small and self-contained tickets for LB and BB to warm up my coding muscles while improving some details, and started thinking about how to scrobble listens when using the ListenBrainz player.
I have started my work on the mb web revamp and for the sake of simplicity and making it convenient for everyone to keep up with the changes, have made it available at
I was designing the wireframes, and connecting with the community at
MusicBrainz Web Home Page Mock Ups
I reviewed two PRs, one from @mr_monkey and the other from @jdaok and spent some good time with the development setup.
Other than that, I am on YouTube now and have decided to release a video every week talking about general stuff. This week I talked about MeB and open source!
It might be the first time you hear or see me live! The video wasn’t scripted so please don’t mind if it feels raw.
I worked on completing the migration to spark parquet dumps in LB and deployed it. I also reviewed some PRs from
@jdaok and deployed the Pinned recordings feature. did the usual post deployment bug fixes then
CB API had several bugs which jasondk discovered while working on the mini review features, fixed those to make CB side ready. there were also some CORS issues in CB and LB endpoints worked on fixing them.
other than some misc LB imporvements, CORS, WebSockets, CSRF and login etc.
and finally working on sir debugging for the past few days.
MBS-11938: Separate most autoselectable websites into their own relationships
@yvanzo voiced that he is against this. He will put down his objection(s) in the ticket and we’ll revisit next week.
MBS-6479: Remove option not to be mailed on No votes
It was generally agreed that the option should be removed, but probably as part of a larger effort to make No vote notifications less spammy, e.g., by sending a batch mail listing No votes instead of sending out individual mails for each one.
Summit will be online again this year. Potential dates were discussed, with the decision landing on 16th–17th of October as the whole MeB team was available then.
@amcap1712 agreed to make a wikipage for it.
