Today is International Heirloom Chili day!
last week was again super productive!
Except for the exams, I was able to do some more work on my PR on the MusicBrainz-Bot with the help of reosarevok & bitmap, where I experimented with Mechanize and added some features to enable addition of new areas with ISO Codes, External Links, etc. (Hoping to get that reviewed soon :))
Apart from that, I also worked on some experimental stuff like fetching new unseen areas from Wikidata, and comparing them with existing areas from the MusicBrainz database.
I went the extra mile and tried to separate out spam areas from Wikidata from the good ones, since there still seems to be quite a lot of it on Wikidata!
I have also been working hard on my GSoC proposal for which the first draft should be posted very soon.
Given the super-tight deadlines, I hope I’d be able to get some feedback from you guys on the proposal, and tailor it to perfection!
Last week I finally finished the BB Wikipedia extract integration and implemented caching for it.
Now we can already include cached extracts in the static page and don’t have to load them asynchronously.
As a “side effect” this also prevents abuse of the Wikimedia APIs.
In the same spirit I’m also dynamically generating a user-agent for BB, which required refactoring the way in which the current git commit is passed into the Docker container.
Over the weekend I finally started working on my GSoC proposal to import MARC records into BB.
I’ve studied lots of existing but unused code from a previous GSoC project and read old chatlogs to prepare my notes for a very constructive (and long) discussion with monkey today!
Now I’m well prepared to finish the first draft of my GSoC proposal, which I will hopefully post soon.
Quite a few people were missing or late, and it was agreed that it was because there was a location-specific timezone change that not everybody would be aware of, and that timezones and daylight savings are stupid.
After some discusson it is agreed:
@yvanzo shares GSoC links to: guide for applicants, guide for mentors
Absent regulars: Moot because of the weird daylight savings thing
ooh, this could be exciting… for ListenBrainz, perhaps? or something else?
also very exciting~ I’d love to see if I’m the top listener to some of my favorite artists~
(probably the only listener for some, lol)
I am in general looking forward to ListenBrainz pages for artists, releases, etc. tho~ that alone will make it feel more like a cohesive product to others, I feel~
Yes, for ListenBrainz. We would love to work with them to be able to play and recommend SC content on LB.
