Meeting Notes: Dec 21 2006

From Gallery Codex

Project Tasks

Gallery 2.2

  • Target RC-1 for 27-Dec
    • webdav is working, just one P9 issue left (several P8 for RC-2..)

Theme contest

  • want to get banner ads out asap. ckdake will ask Joe7 to proceed.
  • flash banner ads ready, still waiting for better landing page/docs, copy&paste examples; Joe7 hopes we can prioritize this


  • New main page, development page, about page and quick start guide have launched. New Downloads page nearly ready.
  • agreed to review "Using Gallery" section of README.html and merge anything useful into Quick Start Guide on codex, then replace this section in README with a link to Quick Start Guide. ckdake will do this.
  • ckdake has not received emails back from college proposal for doc writers
    • will try again in December

G2 Usability

Gallery Foundation

  • schultmc talked to SPI, found our Google Ads revenue is not tax exempt (can't go through SPI); to determine if affiliate revenue is tax exempt they need to see the affiliate agreements. schultmc got some info from MikeK, expecting more soon.

GMC search

  • building of search index running again, small bits in off hours.. at 40%
  • bharat needs to contact drupal devs
  • bharat owns this


  • Gallery now a project on launchpad: but translations(rosetta) not setup yet.
  • Ready to try an import.. mindless will prepare a file for ckdake.
  • For now we'll have to download a tgz of updates and commit ourselves, but that may change later.

Gallery 1

  • No updates this week
  • h0bbel / ckdake get nervous on new G1 releases due to insufficient testing
  • If releasing a new version of G1 requires us to put more resources in the G1 section of the forums, then this is a bad thing for the project.
  • Quality control has been lacking in recent releases
  • We agree that G1.5.x releases need more testing and that G1.6 should be blocked until it has received sufficient testing
  • A G1.5 testing plan shouldn't be that hard: A matrix of major features + changes from the changelog vs. browser/server env. Exhaustive tesring is not necessary, just major features + changes since the last release.
  • G1.6 testing needs much more work. More environments and a more detailed feature list should span the matrix.

Action Items

  • bharat and mindless to do dry run for RC-1 release, then do RC-1 release when ready
  • ckdake to do README->QSG changes (see docs section above)
  • jablko/valiant to work on webdav blockers
  • birdman to work on DB2 REORG/RUNSTATS upgrade
