Meeting Notes: Jul 19 2007

From Gallery Codex

Project Tasks

Gallery 2.3

  • Spam protection: Akismet / publish / unpublish features for the comment module are nearly finished. A review should be ready within the next 1-2 days.
  • Valiant will finish ACL by next week.
  • talmdal fixed the import/export code for PHP 4
  • The Language Manager code isn't available for review yet. Jozefs will be back by the end of July.
  • Feature freeze: Might be mid August since the language manager is the gating factor.

Summer of Code

  • Uday: implementing "Emboss,Dither,Enhance,Solarize and Spread" operations
    • Feedback from Bharat: There are a few cases where a little more help would be useful to users (like the charcoal setting just has a textbox that doesn't explain what the values do to the image)
  • Brian: working on some bug fixes. 8 unittests failing, working on upgrade / ALTER SQL code.
  • Camilo: Submitted exiftool support to review. Still working on the search functionality.
    • Hopefully i'll be working on metadata edition by next week
  • Adam: Good progress. I've got my module building, maintaining, and searching an index, including respecting permisions.
    • Still need to work on a more powerful query parser, search interface, and UI, and some unit tests but at least I'm making good progress
  • General
    • All students should be writing unit tests already. Don't wait for all code to be finished before starting to write tests.
    • Bharat explores the possibility to include Soc 2007 code in G2.3.
      • We'll need to add more observers to SoC code reviews rather sooner than later to assess the code quality etc.

Changes to GMC Forums (Integrations)

  • Kieran will send valiant next week a list of the required forums to create.
    • Still pending
  • Ozgreg wants separate namespaces in the wiki

Gallery 1

  • Quotes received are expensive (factor of 5 over earlier G2 audits), but worth it.
  • We'll keep searching/negotiating for another few weeks.
  • ckdake to start making more phone calls to hear back from all candidates
  • We'd like to know if Tim_j was happy with the week of Gallery 1.
