Reading/Multimedia/Standup notes/2016/November

2016-11-01Edit

  • NOTE: This standup did not occur. Europe was on holiday, and Mark was sick.

2016-11-02Edit

  • Happy November!
  • Prateek says his power is out, so he won't be attending.

MarkEdit

  • I'm not as sick as I was yesterday, but I would describe my mood as cautious optimism.
  • I still don't really have anything in particular to do, so I'll check the FA security review for progress, then maybe bother some people, then trawl Phabricator for more.
  • Maybe also run through my CR lists just to be safe.

MatthiasEdit

  • Fixing things around "back" button

BartoszEdit

  • CR, email

2016-11-03Edit

Prateek (maybe attending)Edit

  • Caught up on CR and bugmail
  • Marking some stuff for GCI
  • Documenting user stories on Extension:FileAnnotations/Design/Process
    • Please add your own if you have any
    • Not yet sure about how to put all this on phab, but not letting that stop the process

MarkEdit

  • Yesterday went mostly as expected, searching for things to do still.
  • Security review not moving. Should ping bawolff or someone today perhaps.

JamesEdit

  • Nothing, Phabricator stuff
  • Backport things to REL1_28 if you need backports

MatthiasEdit

  • Fixed things around "back" button
  • Rebased follow-up patches (moving stuff out of UploadWizard obj)
  • Looking how to & how hard it would be to remember upload state when moving back

2016-11-07Edit

  • As below, maybe we should shift the meeting time. Prateek proposes 3PM SF time, midnight CET, possibly as a supplement?

Prateek (not attending)Edit

MarkEdit

  • Will be working on userscript for image description editing today...backlog of bug reports is now too long to ignore, apparently people are actually using it
  • Nothing else seems to be pressing, unless anyone has anything they need me for...

MatthiasEdit

  • Making sure that when going back in UW, input is preserved

JamesEdit

  • Back in SF! (for six weeks)
  • Goal discussions vaguely planned.
  • Funding proposal for structured data progressing, including a PM for multimedia/structured data, so that's cool.

2016-11-08Edit

PrateekEdit

  • Feeling unproductive because not writing any code
  • Reached the wireframing stage in FA process
  • Missing you people :)

MatthiasEdit

  • Making sure that when going back in UW, input is preserved

MarkEdit

  • I'm in a haze of election stuff today, so I'll try to be useful and work on editDescriptions.js, but there will be limited throughput

BartoszEdit

  • Reverting patches

2016-11-09Edit

MatthiasEdit

  • Watching the news in disbelief
  • Making preserving individual licenses (for multi-upload) work

Mark (failed to attend)Edit

  • Ditto news
  • Thinking about taking today off. Pretty sure that will happen.

2016-11-10Edit

JamesEdit

  • Working on Q goals

BartoszEdit

  • CR
  • Looking at thumb issues on commons

2016-11-14Edit

  • Meeting time changes...looks like the "alternate meeting times" choice has some support, and I don't mind the idea.

Prateek (not attending)Edit

  • Boring stuff
  • FA Design-
    • Feeling overwhelmed with the hierarchies and loops in the new process
    • See sketches at Phabricator
    • Starting to document stuff on Phab

MarkEdit

  • Returns from a very long weekend, needed to stop and breathe for a moment
  • Finally going to get around to the editDescriptions work that was promised last week.
  • Any CR, bug input, anything else that is needed?

MatthiasEdit

  • Fixed issue with errored uploads not being cleared in some refactor patch
  • Made failed uploads resumable after having gone back to tutorial step
  • Made "copy all fields" widget work after failed upload submission

MarkEdit

  • Fixed (almost) all bugs in editDescriptions
  • Gonna look through bugs and try to do some triage today...

JamesEdit

  • Evil plans for Parsing - should we have one for MM?
  • MM software "just works" which is a nice problem to have
  • Productify labs software? Gadgets?
  • Share thoughts for projects if you have them
  • JS linter switchover once Matthias's patches are merged

2016-11-16Edit

  • New time, same great taste.

MarkEdit

  • Did some triage...sort of. Will continue tomorrow. Nothing else really on my plate as far as I know.
  • Will check Thumbor and ImageTweaks tomorrow to see if deployment is even close to possible.

JamesEdit

  • Quarterly goals. There may be two possible paths for this. Should discuss.

2016-11-17Edit

  • Metrics today
  • QG planning probably coming soon

MatthiasEdit

  • Refactoring the skip & reset routines in UW - I want those to be handled in mw.UploadWizard, not let the controllers moveNext() along
  • Fixed unbind of removeUpload event handler

MarkEdit

  • A few things to look at from last night's meeting. FA security review, ImageTweaks, and Thumbor status in prod.

JamesEdit

  • QG due in ~6 days.
  • meetings, meetings, more meetings

2016-11-22Edit

  • Thanksgiving in two days.

PrateekEdit

MarkEdit

  • Literally no update because I last spoke to the hangout 15 hours ago, about 6 of which was sleep, but the rest I was off.
  • Gilles says Thumbor could be turned on in production in a couple days' work.
  • Today: Triage, of various things. If you have ideas lmk

MatthiasEdit

  • Cleaned up upload handling in UW (add/remove uploads)
  • Removed/refactored a few pieces of code to get rid of "reset" code, then abandoned the patch we talked about last week

MarkEdit

  • Quixotic attempts to triage the Multimedia workboard continued today, probably also tomorrow.
  • Will work on tomorrow: Security review checklist, possible first draft of FA announcement

JamesEdit

  • Administrivia
  • Maybe need to work on metrics - quality vs. quantity???

2016-11-29Edit

  • Note: Mark and James were the only two in attendance, and had spoken 15 hours prior, so the standup was cancelled.

Matthias (missing standup)Edit

  • Better error message when uploading when offline
  • Looking into flaky ConcurrentQueue tests

2016-11-30Edit

MarkEdit

  • More trudging through workboard today. Sigh. Probably will continue tomorrow. I have seen some things that need attention, but I'd like to finish triaging first.
  • Looks like design work for FileAnnotations is continuing apace. Commented on all of the tasks.
