2016-10-03[edit]

  • Standup notes are now being archived in public - we won't *announce* them, but they're being stored somewhere that is visible. Just a heads up.
  • Affirmative response to archiving past standup notes was lackluster, so I won't be moving them at first. Mark may try to get consensus at the offsite.

Mark[edit]

  • Traveling this Thursday to attend WikiConference USA - will return home Tuesday evening, likely to collapse in a heap for a day or so.
  • I think I need to review Prateek's patch for FA, but after that, FA goals are met once the security review goes through and we push to the Beta Cluster.
  • FA editing interface improvements likely to shortly follow the offsite.
  • I'd like to start thinking about file curation tools, likely in the form of gadgets or bots at first.
  • From last week: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T143192 still needs comment (ping James, Prateek)

Matthias[edit]

  • Working on adding "previous" buttons throughout UW upload flow

James[edit]

  • Looking at e-mail
  • Also going to WikiConference USA

2016-10-04[edit]

Mark[edit]

  • I didn't accomplish much yesterday. Today will likely be more mostly-aimless searching through Phabricator.

Matthias[edit]

  • Breaking up "previous buttons" into multiple smaller patches

2016-10-05[edit]

Mark[edit]

  • Travelling for WikiConference tomorrow, will not be at the standup (or will be on the train), so someone else needs to take notes and archive them.

Matthias[edit]

  • Worked on existing patches (rebase, fix, feedback)
  • Reading up on how people patrol uploads on commons

2016-10-10[edit]

Prateek[edit]

  • Catching up on email after being unwell last week
  • Need review on
  • Thinking of not attending AllHands & DevSummit in Jan. Any thoughts?

Matthias[edit]

  • Fixed UW warning dialog regression (showed up for successful uploads)
  • Working on "back" button (most importantly: making "upload" 2 steps, instead of going back to file selection immediately)

2016-10-11[edit]

James[edit]

  • Back from WikiConference
    • People talked about 3D and video files
    • Brion working on video.js BetaFeature

Prateek[edit]

  • Working on gallery issues as pointed out in T143192
  • Some OOUI stuff

Matthias[edit]

  • Working on "back" button (most importantly: making "upload" 2 steps, instead of going back to file selection immediately)

Bartosz[edit]

  • Needs CR
  •  ??

2016-10-12[edit]

  • Offsite: Next week! I hope everyone is ready.
  • Quarterly review also next week.

Mark[edit]

  • I return from WikiConference North America!
  • Today: Likely looking into video/audio annotations
  • If that seems too complex, maybe annotation editing interface changes
  • Note: We're into Q2 now, and our security review has not happened yet. We may not "hit" our goal of deploying FA to the beta cluster.

Matthias[edit]

Prateek[edit]

  • Still looking at GallerySlideshow issues

2016-10-13[edit]

Prateek (not attending)[edit]

  • Travel prep - currency exchange, bank and boring stuff
  • Sorry James T130434

Mark (barely attending)[edit]

  • Woke up on the wrong side of the bed
  • Going to try to rest before Trip Number Three
  • Since I worked throughout the three-day weekend, I assume this is achievable.

Matthias[edit]

  • Refactor nw.UploadWizard - trying to rip out this.uploads & upload handling

Week of 2016-10-17[edit]

  • Entire team was at an off-site event. No standups were held.

2016-10-24[edit]

  • QR looks like it's...at a weird time. Should confirm.

Mark[edit]

  • Woke up way too early
  • Security review response underway - could use CR

Matthias[edit]

  • Will CR FA stuff
  • Vagrant is borked

Matthias[edit]

  • Review WIP patch
  • Vagrant reinstall
  • Improved "back" patch for UW

2016-10-26[edit]

  • QR today!

Mark[edit]

  • Yesterday was still bad for productivity, but I'm getting back on the horse today, because I got eight hours of sleep.
  • FA security fixes merged, so we could probably push things out...there were low-severity things that I didn't think were applicable and we can probably steamroll
  • Nobody else came

2016-10-27[edit]

Mark[edit]

  • Little more work to do on non-security improvements for FA.
