  • finally fixed the last reported issue with the new AC editor on the beta server
  • submitted both schema change PRs assigned to me, just the SQL parts

@LeftmostCat:

New search servers

http://chatlogs.metabrainz.org/brainzbot/metabrainz/msg/3581383/

As @weeksio dropped out of this year GSoC, @Zas wanted to know what our plan was regarding the new servers.

@Rob stated that he “might just need to bit the bullet and take on this project myself.” @Bitmap stated that once MBS-8736 had been submitted, he’d have more capacity to help out with search server issues as well. @Rob affirmed that the new SOLR search server needs to be up for our move to NewHost.

Autoeditor elections

http://chatlogs.metabrainz.org/brainzbot/metabrainz/msg/3581423/

@reosarevok and @Freso talked a bit over the weekend about the current state of affairs with regards to autoeditor elections and came up with a temporary workflow until it can get automated again.

This was approved by the meeting and is explained in more details in this blog post: https://blog.musicbrainz.org/2016/05/03/temporary-autoeditor-election-procedure/
