Meeting Notes: Apr 05 2007

From Gallery Codex

Project Tasks

Summer of Code

  • Mentors: talmdal, zimzat and virshu ready to decide, jablko doing final evaluations
  • Looking forward to seeing virshu's and jablko's choice / preferences in the summer-gallery-mentors group list
  • Mentors should discuss who'll mentor which student and assign themselves to a specific student's application by Saturday
  • Start sending out emails to students with some tips for future applications on Sunday

G2.3 Experimental Repository

  • G2.2 doesn't check plugin compatibility and tries to install plugins from any DP repository
    • Can't expose G2.3 Experimental Repository to G2.2 users
  • Fix: Add API strings in DP request such that we can return only compatible repository indices
    • Default to G2.2 compatible repositories if no API string present in request
    • API string could be in request params or in request headers

Gallery 2.3 Roadmap

  • Decision was made to only have minor API changes in G2.3
    • We wanted a shorter release cylce for G2.2 and failed miserably. Having major API changes wouldn't help in G2.3.
    • Strive for a shorter release cycle for G2.3 again.
    • There are plenty of changes we can make w/o a major API change: User:Bharat#Does_not_require_API_change, [[1]], Gallery2:Roadmap:2.3
    • mindless suggests to keeping G2.3 mostly a performance, bugfix, cleanup release and keeping the release cycle really small.
  • A roadmap meeting has been scheduled for next Thursday.
    • The next meeting will be about the roadmap only.
    • Please prepare your suggestions for the roadmap and we'll spend the whole next meeting to agree on a roadmap for G2.3.
  • Hopefully more people will contribute to the roadmap, if not as high-priority goals, then as community or low-priority goals.
