#MetaBrainz Meeting 2016-08-01

Meeting start:


  • Reviews
  • VideoBrainz
  • Crowdfunding relationships

















@dukeja (jduke) talked about the discussions happening on starting a VideoBrainz project.

They have created a GitHub organisation for the early versions of their thoughts on the project:

@dukeja also asked for advice on getting a development environment set up, which @Rob volunteered to help advice on.

Crowdfunding relationships

Continuing discussion from the forums (Donation / patronage relationship (STYLE-327), Crowdfunding relationship (STYLE-546)), @reosarevok asked for thoughts/opinions on the possibility of fraud with these links.

There was a bit of discussion back in forth. In the end, it was decided to not treat these relationships different from those of e.g. shop links and trust the community to weed out bad ones before harm is done.

We also touched a bit on how we’re already disclaiming that we have «No warranty or liability for errors […]. [Data] is provided “as is” without warranty of any kind for correctness or completeness.» even if it is stated in a probably less than optimal location and that it might be good to move, or at least copy it, to (an)other place(s). No resolution was reached on this though.
