#MetaBrainz Meeting 2016-05-30
Pythonic block of SOLR
Affiliate tagger program
published some more supporters:
reviewed some gsoc work
and pull requests for MBS and LB
updated sentry and fixed some stuff with
@zas’ help started looking into ways to set up direct access to MB database from CB
slept a lot
I’m in Canada on semi-vacation…finally over jet-lag and bronquitis and can think about working…
I’ve been doing the minimum required to keep up on the new users. Luckily it has been quiet for a few days.
But, we did get a Gold sign-up: Graphiq
@Gentlecat is amazing at helping me with the supporters page. He posts things faster than I can type a note to the supporter to say the logo will be up “soon”.
@Freso is great help too, with getting more detailed content into responses.
I’ve also been brainstorming the Task Rabbit and have an idea for MusicBrainz “Valet”. I am typing out the idea to present to ruaok and all.
I’ve been working on the dialog box for displaying more tracks (other than the one automatically tagged) in Picard.
Basic UI and functionality is ready, and one can see additional tracks in that box. Though, it does only this much currently.
Some digging into Picard. Looked into existing methods and working.
If anyone would like to have a look at dialog -> https://github.com/rahul-raturi/picard/tree/embed_search
Right. So I’ve been trudging my way through the eldritch horrors of google apis to design the bigquery schema suitable for acousticbrainz queries
I think I’ve got it but I’ve just gotten access to a server and acousticbrainz data that I need to upload to test the efficiency of typical queries
That’s about it, stay tuned
and I’m thinking of buying the eldritch horror board game Pythonic block of SOLR
CJ_ has stated that his SOLR work is currently blocked by not being proficient/familiar enough with Python, so if any Pythonistas are around who would like to help see the state of SOLR improve, please go poke at tickets in
https://tickets.musicbrainz.org/browse/SOLR and/or ping CJ_ when he’s around. Affiliate tagger program
There have previously been some discussion about the status of the
tagger affiliate program. @Rob decreed that it still earns MetaBrainz some income and that it will get phased out if the taggers currently in it die out, rather than moving them over to the MetaBrainz.org tier-based donation system.
Picard will not get enrolled in the program, but should rather get more emphasis on https://musicbrainz.org/'s front page directly. Summit 16
We have dates and a place for
MusicBrainz Summit 16 picked out: September 22nd to 24th in Barcelona, in MetaBrainz’ office there.
Add yourself to the
table of attendees if you’re planning on attending!
A ticket about implenting JSON-LD in the web service. Should it be closed now that we have JSON-LD directly in pages?
@Rob and @bitmap pinged a bit back and forth, but ultimately decided to leave it open.
