#MetaBrainz Meeting 2016-05-16

Meeting start:


  • Reviews
  • Schema change announcement
  • Developer priorities
  • Picard 503





  • dealt with support, including delegating some stuff to chrisskye (yay!)
  • got tired of not being able to set user emails when they didn’t get our verification, so I wrote that code
  • it’s in beta now, and I already had to use it once, so I’d say it was a success :stuck_out_tongue:
  • spent the second half of the week worrying about opening the museum I volunteer / intern at, which means 2-in-1 release groups and other boxsets (STYLE-330, STYLE-331, STYLE-335) still needs me to decide stuff which gah I’m sorry I’ll get to it :frowning:
  • (it’s not very straightforward at all so I need to consider it carefully and I just haven’t had enough peace and quiet to think about it)


  • did schema change stuff


  • added new customers to page
  • reviewed GSoC work


  • hacking on new rate limiter
  • search servers




  • did a number of schema change tickets
  • also prepared auto-pestering for banner message editors so that they will take down banner messages sooner







Schema change announcement

Developer priorities

Announcement from @Rob that once the schema change release is out, the development priorities will get shuffled around a bit:

  1. Hotfix critical bugs as they appear.
  2. Coordinate with @Zas to identify and fix issues that prevent us from moving to NewHost.

Picard 503

Basically we’re seeing a lot of complaints about Picard users being pretty much unable to do anything due to getting 503’s from MusicBrainz, so @reosarevok asked if we could tweak the new rate limiter a bit. Short answer: yes, @Rob and @zas will continue to work on and tweak the rate limiter so hopefully Picard users should get a better experience shortly.
