2017-02-01[edit]

  • A new month! Merry February to all.

Prateek[edit]

  • Very. Unproductive. Week.
  • Dealing with some extremely stupid Safeguard stuff
  • Tax time
  •  :(

2017-02-02[edit]

  • Happy Groundhog Day!
  • Staff breakfast today.

Mark[edit]

  • Unproductive week here, too.
  • James, I could use some product insight on Extension:3D
  • Also need to file a security review bug for it.

Matthias[edit]

  • Error warning handling patch split up
  • Fixed aborting uploads

2017-02-06[edit]

Mark[edit]

  • Wrote patch for cursor in MMV-3d
  • Writing patch for media type addition...life is terrible
  • Security review in
  • Will hit SoS to ask for help with deployment things

James[edit]

  • Annual plan stuff
  • Tasks for 3d

2017-02-07[edit]

Matthias[edit]

  • Was looking at setting up dashboard for UploadWizard EventLogging data
    • Anyone any experience with Dashiki?
  • Looking to respond to Firefogg going away
    • Probably remove Firefogg handler soon, it's breaking already
    • Alternatives?
      • At all possible?
      • Payload of transcoder acceptable?
      • Transcoding speed acceptable?
      • Quality?
      • What about licenses?

Mark[edit]

  • 3d extension work ramping up.
  • Thanks @James_F for the evaluation.
  • Looks like I need to help Matthias with some stuff.

2017-02-09[edit]

Mark[edit]

  • Legal chat - patent troubles for 3D files? Will discuss.
  • Security review continuing apace.

Matthias[edit]

  • Conversion scripts on client side - disappointing. Probably backend is better.
  • EventLogging dashboards now

2017-02-14[edit]

Matthias[edit]

  • Added 'uploadwizard' & 'uploadwizard-flickr' tags to files uploaded through UW
  • Working on making it impossible to create extensionless (or any disallowed filename) File:... pages

2017-02-16[edit]

Matthias[edit]

  • 'uploadwizard' & 'uploadwizard-flickr' tags
  • disallow extensionless (& other invalid filenames) NS_FILE pages - may not go anywhere...

Mark[edit]

  • I'm back!
  • Will check on security review, deployment checklist, etc.

Prateek[edit]

  • OOUI things...
  • FA prototype work
  • FA (in general)
    • Where are we, where do we go?
      • Mark: We have support to finish and maintain our existing projects, so we're in a good place and we can finish FA.
    • Should we wait for Structured Data or the final WebAnnotations spec?
      • Mark: SD is farther out, and we can shift to it. WA finalization would be nice, but an incomplete spec is probably fine. I doubt they'll change it much.

2017-02-20[edit]

  • US Holiday

2017-02-21[edit]

Mark[edit]

  • Still waiting on security review for 3D extension
  • Greg knows we plan to push things out once it's done
  • Nothing else really happening
  • I'll be in and out today, have an appointment in the afternoon

Matthias[edit]

  • Adding chunked upload to upload.js
  • Then (see if I can) remove it from UW FormDataTransport & use the one in upload.js instead

2017-02-23[edit]

Mark[edit]

  • Security review still ongoing for 3D files.
  • Practically nothing else to report, it has been a bad week for my productivity.
  • Will review chunked upload in core and UW patch

Matthias[edit]

  • chunked upload support in upload.js
  • eventlogging data dashboard

2017-02-28[edit]

Matthias[edit]

  • Investigated why Template:PD-Israel wasn't accepted as license when in Hebrew interface (he parsed version didn't include Template:License template tag)
  • Working on errors/exceptions dashboard (queries probably ready, setting up dashiki)

Mark[edit]

  • Security review came back, I fixed issues, Reedy counter-proposal in queue, will look at it today
  • Gerrit repo requested, we can't deploy until that happens (oh, it's done, James tells me)
  • Deploy schedule now has to be pushed back, but my proposal had some wiggle-room built in (oh, no it doesn't, because the Gerrit repo is done)
  • Appointment later, will be in and out

James[edit]

  • WFH
  • Annual planning
  • Fixing up security patch and transferring to Gerrit

Prateek[edit]

  • Catch-up, random OOUI things
