Meeting Notes: Nov 02 2006

From Gallery Codex

Project Tasks

Gallery 2.2

  • Planning RC-1 for 11-Nov or earlier
    • Bug/security fixes and webdav in progress; webdav/httpauth will move to main svn this weekend
    • Task/bug priority.. P9==fix for RC-1, P8==fix for RC-2, P7==nice-to-have
    • (virshu) optimize task, will have new diffs tonight
    • (virshu/mindless) usability #1 - decided we don't want to change header/sidebar, but don't know CSS to make it work without this change
    • (bharat) Security audit for DP is lined up, will submit at RC-1 time
  • valiant made new 2.2 Release Blockers page

Theme contest

  • Theme contest launched with news article on GMC front page, forum topic and codex page.


  • No updates this week
  • mango wrote up a docs project proposal that ckdake can distribute to help get tech writers

G2 Usability

Gallery Foundation

  • Got some feedback about SPI, schultmc to followup
  • About 50% of donations go to SPI: some work needed for routing other donations: now accepting via paypal and; can we get SPI to receive directly via paypal/google checkout? (bharat/schultmc) also how to get other funds to SPI so we're not subject to bharat's tax bracket

GMC search

  • No updates this week
    • bharat showed customized google search we might integrate
    • Signe revived this topic in email, hopefully he'll continue to push it forward
    • search currently offline (except for privileged users), with form to search via google instead
    • could change DB table engine from MyISAM to InnoDB and see if that helps, also with one-table-per-file setting
    • could rollback drupal caching "fix" which greatly increases load on GMC because everytime people click "back" it hits the server to reload the page; this means "click search result, click back, click another search results" makes GMC repeat the search query (it was this drupal upgrade, and not the original 4.7 upgrade, when GMC lockups became much more frequent)


  • Joe7 has done some work with phpgettext as fallback for gettext, plus a smarty prefilter+compiler to pretranslate strings in tpl files at compile time to save this processing at page render time. valiant and mindless will review this work and assess value+risk to decide if anything goes into 2.2 (maybe phpgettext as fallback in 2.2, prefilter after)
  • Exploring using to enable entering translations in a browser based UI
    • ckdake got on user mailing list, will fwd to mindless when he has something

Gallery 1.6

  • Alpha-2 was released, work on alpha-3 is in progress
  • Jens to arrange a full security audit for 1.6
  • Jens/Christian/Dave to publish a test plan for 1.x

General Action Items

  • Need somebody to draft a proposal for an ISP qualification program
  • ckdake will make download page easier to navigate (should have clean look, minimal text and crap), including adding anchors as needed. cool download pages: 1 2
