@reosarevok: Welcome to a slightly delayed Monday Meeting!
[ApeKattQuest] Did [
INST-1078: cimpoi], [ INST-1014: Cabrette], [ INST-988: Veuze] (with [ INST-1028: Veuze] closed as a dupe)
Have also fixed some old transliteration errors with the help of [ Transcription into Japanese - Wikipedia] and reo making queries
oh and also [ INST-1085: piva]
Today I have basically worked on a single task: a lot of research about hungarian, polish, croatian, latvian bagpipes, wikipedia is a mess! but I think I have sorted out dudy vs duda vs dükozadas now I think.
more research is needed ot figure out how the german “bock” fits in
anyone reading this or the post after is welcome to tell em anythig they might know about such folk bagpipes
Still have a bequest for the frenchies: zas, yvanzo, monkey, anyone else lurking?
s’il te plait, a translation of Cromorne — Wikipédia ? the information here is more detailed and actually explains what it is, rather than the english one which basically just says “idk man”
no time limit, but please put it in a paste/snipplet/link and not directly in the chat.
[ansh] Last week I finished off the work for refactoring the frontend folder structure. I spent a good amount of time fighting with merge conflicts.
I had a wonderful meeting with monkey, where we discussed some of the pending PRs.
Then worked on some final changes for profile page SPA. I also worked on user dashboard SPA.
And worked on introducing ambient queues to BrainzPlayer.
Whilst there is a lull, can I give a plaudit to Philipp [
@outsidecontext] for this work he just did on Picard - a user reported an issue, and within a day or so Philipp had fixed it. Of course this is not that uncommon in Metabrainz, but in the wider open source movement IME it is.
Last week I wrote a Spotify Extended Streaming History importer for my elbisaur CLI.
It is not yet released as Spotify’s timestamps are not reliable and the dumps also contains partial listens which are not marked as skipped etc.
Since Spotify’s JSON does not include the track duration to compare the listening duration against, this probably requires some API lookups to solve realiably…
Using what I have so far, I have carefully imported my history for 2023 in small batches, making use of elbisaur’s filtering, preview and statistics features a lot.
I also did a new implementation of a broken older userscript feature to set recording dates in the MB release relationship editor (for all selected recordings).
[Pratha-Fish] Nothing much from me this week either
Building some playlist tools tho
Oh also, I realized I might have ADHD
That explains a lot of my behaviors. (Anyone aware about that stuff can help me maybe)
[reo: probably half the channel, but after the meeting : )]
Dropping MB Commons Code
@yvanzo queried why we should remove it if it’s not causing any trouble - reo and yvan to discuss after the meeting.
Summary: Barring any unforeseen events, we will be moving to Matrix ‘officially’ (IRC will keep working).
@lucifer will install it properly on the new domain that @rob bought for our chat, and then we can update the wiki etc.
@rob is waiting for a few more travel details and then can start executing.
Sightseeing and public toilets are discussed briefly.
