Also fixed a bunch of security things. Now we're pretty clean apart from the IRC bot and the lobes CSS theme (which is getting to a ripe old age anyway, and is on the way out)
And finally, on a personal note, I'm sad to say my grandma passed away on Friday. I'll be mostly off comms for the next couple of weeks, in Paris with the family and away from computer.
Will keep an eye on the most pressing things;
Sciencentistguy7 joined the channel
A tough act to follow! zas go !
Sorry to hear that monkey
my condolences, monkey
Sorry about your loss monkey
sorry to hear about your loss monkey
Last week, I helped Monkey to find the issue between the chair and the computer ;)
I also deployed git upgrades on all servers, we still have few old versions in containers though, but they don't usually sync anything but our repos
Sciencentistguy has quit
Sciencentistguy7 is now known as Sciencentistguy
plus usual stuff, upgrades, supervision, user support, Picard PRs reviews, and of course MB edits
fin. mayhem ?
take care, monkey!
unsurprisingly, last week I worked on docs aside the background tasks.
I finally wrote docs for troi, which took quite some time, but felt good to get done.
and then I spent a day updating the "loss of executive director" document, updating it for changes in the last year.
of which there were quite a lot -- so I am very grateful for the docsprint, which keeps this doc updated.
but, I am looking forward to getting back to technical work!
Interjecting — I forgot to mention I had a nice video chat with aerozol to talk about the ListenBrainz redesign as well
(Still up: yvanzo, akshaaatt, atj, lucifer, bitmap, vibhoo_24, jasje, Pratha-Fish, riksucks, jivte, yellowhatpro, Freso – anyone else who wish to give review, please let me know ASAP.)
last week was docweek for me too, I updated the summer of code part of the wiki, filling in the projects that we've done over the last 3-4 years which were missing
Thuraabtech has quit
also had some interesting initial discussions with recent SoC students about how the docs could be updated to be clearer, there was some opinions that the most important things aren't front and center and so could be moved around a bit
as reosarevok said, I did some prototypes of some MusicBrainz API docs with swagger. With yvanzo we had a quick video call to teach him some knowledge about how to use the solr admin to debug search queries, which he wrote up as some docs
Nice and understandable docs!
I also started to review mayhem's troi docs, and started some additional sysadmin docs around botbot
I also wanted to write down something concrete about our future CB plans (using it as API-only and putting frontends on MB/LB/BB), but didin't get as far on that as I wanted to
oh, with lucifer we finally debugged the final listenbrainz metadata dumps, which are now working and just pending being added to cron for periodic dumps
For the Docsprint, beyond the Solr debug session mentioned by alastairp (which allowed to identify two bugs at least)...
I reviewed the all three last test documentation improvements by reosarevok from last year.
And finally pursued a documentation about external links handling in MusicBrainz Server.
(Still running after that one...)
Apart from the Docsprint, I investigated Sentry setup for mobile apps’ support by akshaaatt.
Thanks for that yvanzo!
Fixed an automation bug that was closing SEC tickets without setting resolution.
That issue had been spotted by monkey who has been very active about these.
Fin. Go akshaaatt!
I’m surprised I survived last week
Learnt a lot of new things and have been pushing hard for getting things right. The current focus has been on LB android
Grateful to jasje for contributing loads of PRs!
We have been discussing roadmaps and how we want more and more tests for the app.
That’s pretty much it. Go lucifer!
(Still up: atj, bitmap, vibhoo_24, jasje, Pratha-Fish, riksucks, jivte, yellowhatpro, Freso – anyone else who wish to give review, please let me know ASAP.)
Those have been some lengthy discussions! Great job akshaaatt and jasje
beginning of last week, i worked on prototyping timezone support for listens. that brought up some issues leading to discussion on how to display timestamps to users on listens page etc.
i had hoped to work on docs after that but got in busy IRL so couldn't accompolish much on that front. hope to make up for it by writing more docs in upcoming weeks.
nothing to report this week for me :)
earlier today, worked on fixing a recommendations bug and investigating mapping issues.
that's it for mr.
Okay mr lucifer
I think I mentioned this during the last meeting as it was done on the day but I finished deploying the new VLAN to all the servers managed in Ansible
that it's, bitmap?
(Still up: vibhoo_24, jasje, Pratha-Fish, jivte, yellowhatpro, Freso – anyone else who wish to give review, please let me know ASAP.)
Great job ATJ!!
last week I spent time writing some "React state management" docs to basically detail the strategy I used to manage state in the relationship editor, which we can use in future projects (e.g. other entity edit forms)
I also continued taking in feedback on MBS-11847 and updated test.mb with various fixes and improvements that people have suggested. yet more suggestions have popped up so I'll continue with that this week then :)
Last week I tried exploring troi codebase and learnt react and typescript so that I can contribute to the frontend issues.I also read about snapshots so that I can debug the failing tests in my pr.I tried finding some frontend related issues...I am still looking for some....That's it Thanks
Pratha-Fish: go next...
Hi all :D
I am (unfortunately) back to college, so I'd have to spend most of my time there.
but I've still been trying my best to work on an updated IRC doc (going pretty well so far!), not to mention the MLHD project that I have been slacking on too much 💀.
Also tried a litte bit to optimize the landing page for GSoC docs. I'd be happy to discuss it
Also since we are discussing about updating the Wiki, I'd like to introduce you to https://gohugo.io. It's not a wiki replacement, but it's pretty fantastic for generating super easy-to-maintain documentation sites with Markdown files. I used it recently to build my portfolio site, and I can vouch that it's pretty epic and ez to maintain... iirc a lot of smaller projects have been using it to build their documentation
sites too :D
P.S. alastairp sorry for not being very active recently with the MLHD project. Unskippable things just keep popping up. Also, I understand you'd be taking a break from MetaBrainz related activities starting from February, so me slacking off doesn't help with the project timeline either. Super apologies for that. 🥲
on a personal note, the lazy professor has asked me to write and conduct practical sessions for our Hadoop lab sessions, which makes the time constraints worse but as an upside, I'll soon be able to learn and help around with parallel processing-related stuff. lucifer: if you find any beginner-friendly issues related to hadoop/spark, I'd really be happy to try and help and learn :)
jivte: would you like to go next?
(Only jasje, yellowhatpro, and Freso left on my list. Final call for anyone else who want to go!)
Freso: me too please
So my college reopened last week (bad luck):(
Pratha-Fish jivte us bro us 🤝
Last week I mainly improved my pr's and implemented valuable comments from monkey
also thanks to lucifer for helping me writing an API for user search
will now work on all album listens feature
also I and monkey had a minor headache with react-datetime-picker-library
but we sorted it out:) thanks monkey
thats it from my side!
over to aerozol
vibhoo_24 has quit
I worked on the LB redesign some more, had a nice chat with monkey about how it’s going and what to prioritize
I started monitoring reddit for lsitenbrainz and musicbrainz comments and posts more closely, and answering some questions
I think that’s it! go yellowhatpro
And no jasje around.
I spent some time looking over the Discourse 3.0 changes and will be attending a webinar tomorrow about this update too, but it mostly seems fine except for a new chat feature which we’ll probably want off to begin with. Maybe it will be able to integrate it with IRC chat eventually, but we’ll see.
Other than that: dealing with spam, editor reports, forum flags, peeking around IRC and forums, etc.
And no sign of yellowhatpro or jasje, so I guess this wraps up reviews.
Thanks for all the community managing, on community manager appreciation day, Freso :)
Also what adequate sized feet you have!
Thank you all for yours!
And also no more items on the agenda, so this also concludes the meeting.
Thank you all for your time! Take care out there!
reosarevok: about mb-solr PR, I’ve been also waiting for you to revert the changes on label formatting.
yvanzo: well, I've been waiting to get confirmation on whether they should all be backticks or all quotes, because before it was mixed :)
alastairp, and everyone else: there are two pending guidelines PRs as well.
mayhem: does the fresh releases ‘relevance’ score divide up into /5 stars nicely? Shall I go with that? I like the thought of displaying it (or toggling it) on the ‘all’ view as well, because why not
lucifer: Hey are u free now had something to discuss abt add album option :)
aerozol: I think we can make that fit, yes
mayhem: cool, I’ll have a play. Is the score a number? A big number or a small one?
jivte: aerozol might also have good opinions on the UX for the manual album listen addition
aerozol: open ended, but don't worry about that. assume we get it into 5 sections.
lucifer: thanks So we want to search albums by typing their name like we search users and then we want the list of all listens of the release selected:)
so how should I begin
monkey: thanks aerozol can u plz give ur valuable comments :)
jivte: On what :P
jivte: hmm, let me see.
aerozol: is slowly becoming the most important person here
