#MetaBrainz Meeting 2021-09-13
R U OK? Monday
Last meeting: 2021-09-06
Next meeting: 2021-09-20
Nothing much, just looking at some tickets, regular editing and making userscipts
Just finishing a project, new term is starting, and hopefully everything will come back on track this week
last week seemed to run by really quickly
I tried a few times to upgrade sentry (our release is about 2 years old, and has some deprecated github integrations)
due to the way that our docker setup works, this was much more complex than I expected, though once I learned the right incantations things seemed to go better.
we’re currently upgraded from 9->10, though we still need to upgrade to the latest v21 release (in 2020 they moved to year-based versioning). I didn’t want to waste any more time on that so I’ve put it to the side for now
I did some LB reviews, and am finishing off a LB frontend PR that I opened before summer
Last week I worked on a few improvements for ListenBrainz: submitting listens when played on the LB website, showing a play button on hovering over listens, and helping
@amcap1712 with the LibreFM import page.
I also reviewed PR (mostly for LB) and did some testing of @akashgp09’s Series project for BookBrainz, as well as some general repo and CI tests housekeeping.
Finally I sat down with @rob to discuss summit t-shirt ideas. Excited to work on this again
Also got my 2nd vaccine jab over the weekend, so that’s done.
This week I realised I needed to code more so I dived in and worked on building components which we can use across all ours applications
I even completed two advanced courses on React which I feel was much needed.
I skimmed through the documentations for bootstrap and react very properly
Hopefully I can start making PRs to all projects this week and get our work going
Other than that I had a lot of college exams this past week. So that’s about it. I see amazing changes upcoming and it is really exciting!
The Android app now supports Light mode along with Dark mode!
MBS-11938: Separate most autoselectable websites into their own relationships
There was some talk about technical implications of splitting out vs. combining and it was generally agreed that there were pros and cons for both and not a clear winner for either.
It was decided that the MusicBrainz team would discuss potentional implementations further to see if it’s be possible to get the “best of both worlds” for the downstream users.
@reosarevok suggested “you could probably have a rule in contracts that says “for each day after X, 0,5% is discounted from the payment””, to which @rob responded “that’s evil. no.”
@Freso had some suggestions:
@rob retorted that he’s “made it clear on a number of occasions why submitting invoices on time is important. and I really don’t want to be nagging people. do the contracts want to nag me to get paid?”
@rob then suggested that “if submission of invoice is X days late, payment will also be X days late.”
The item was left without resolution and postponed to next meeting, to see whether people would come up with additional ideas.
