Mark[edit]

  • Worked a little on UW performance
  • Chatted with Prateek about FA search API use, I think we've come to some conclusions, but it also sounds like design/user research will be a step.

  • Nasty UW bug fixed

2016-12-15[edit]

  • Limited availability continues!

Mark[edit]

  • Patch for loading upload interfaces on scroll in the details step is up, could use review
  • Had a thought (in IRC) about grouping uploads. May work on that at the tech days/hackathon/dev summit or whatever we're calling it now

Matthias[edit]

  • Redid mw.Api & error messages patches in different order
  • Using parsed messages from API now instead of building them on client
  • Going to (try to) do the same for BookletLayout
