#MetaBrainz Meeting 2016-07-11
Discogs http/https URL normalization
I started work on a new feature for AB, being able to quickly get metadata for recordings which have been submitted to AB. Freso and I discussed it a bit here:
http://tickets.musicbrainz.org/browse/AB-115, I’m still not sure if it’s going to be better for us to copy data into the AB db, or access the MB db directly
Once we have this data we’ll be able to do quick artist filtering when we’re generating models, show metadata in the dataset editor without doing thousands of ws lookups, and do search [i’m really excited about search, finally]
I also worked with kartikgupta0909 on his next milestone. looking good so far
and I spoke with armalcolite about a few things
I got all of my achievements finished this week. Added the new contavertial ones we discussed in the bb meeting a week ago. I’ve got unit tests to sort out now for my module (now I know how to do it :P) and a notification system so people know that they have actually unlocked stuff, that is going pretty well at the moment.
A bunch of UI changes to come and Im getting close to the cleanup stage just polishing everything
Discussed with alastairp and then changed the listen’s schema a bit.
Wrote a bunch of new tests for api-compat. With some more to go, i think the initial set will finish.
I now have the best ready for creating tests for the native API as well.
Went over with the project goals again to make sure nothing is left.

@chirlu asks “about whether we want to convert Discogs URLs to https like we did with Wikidata (Discogs is now redirecting to https always, too).”
@reosarevok, @Freso, @Rob, and @bitmap all agreed with converting Discogs URLs and no one else commented on it.
