Project Tasks

Gallery 2.2.2

  • Released, yay!

Gallery 2.3

  • Talmdal Is waiting for feedback regarding the design of the input validation.
  • Bharat and ckdake are going to look at xmlrpc. ckdake should have a outline by next week.
  • Language manager progress slowed down a bit, jozefs should have something for review soon.
  • Valiant is still sporatically working on the ACL change (allowing multiple accessListId, itemId mappings). slow progress this week, didn't have much time to work on it.
  • Joe7. is nowhere compared to where I've planned to be at this point. (some reasons in status mail which was blocked as I see, resending now).
  • Bharat working on comments/akismet module.
    • The comments module will be used as a test-bed for publish/unpublish GalleryComment entity methods implemented via permissions
    • The above concept can later be refactored into core.
    • We can have publishing queues, but use permissions to control visibility when you're in a queue.

Changes to GMC Forums (Integrations)

Gallery 1

  • 1.6 looking good!

  • Still waiting for an update from Jeff Ward on docs, but he has been very active.

GalleryCon 2007
