<Amgine> So... I've spent a week rebuilding computers. And I missed last Friday's meeting. <Amgine> Did anything happen? <tony_> nah, everyone was busy and dropped in for two minutes and left <Amgine> heh. <tony_> shea fixed word of the day on friday <Amgine> Well, Dlemieux is working at a gaming conference in California. <Amgine> Yah, I saw that, but my re-install of Eclipse sorta failed. <Amgine> So I can't check it out. <tony_> ooh hes at GDC? <tony_> i think our features are essentially done for the alpha unless more things are broken upstream <Amgine> yah. I was jealous. The description is "work a bit, then attend talks" * sheac (~sheaclare@S0106002618c78fad.vc.shawcable.net) has joined #Wiktionary-mobile <Amgine> As far as I'm aware, upstream is working well. <Amgine> Heya Sheac! <tony_> did you have any progress talking to the wiktionary people to allow us to collapse the elements we want? <sheac> Hi Amgine <sheac> Hi tony_ <tony_> hey! <Amgine> tony_: No, I'm getting roundly ignored there. <Amgine> I may just go around behind people's backs and do it. <Amgine> If we can get a list of the templates which need updating - like the translations template - I can just try that. <sheac> I'm still really sketchy on what MediaWiki means by templates sometimes. You're talking things analogous to document elements from HTML, but in WikiText? <tony_> well the main element is the giant translation element <Amgine> A template is a wikitext page which is 'included' at the time the page is parsed for presentation. <Amgine> That way something which shows up a lot of different places can be abstracted. <Amgine> So, for example, the translation template shows up in a million or so pages; very important that they all look the same, and can be edited *once* to change it everywhere. <sheac> Ok. So like CSS <sheac> ? <sheac> … I think I got it. <Amgine> Yes, a bit. <sheac> Anyway, It sounds like Tony's got a candidate <Amgine> Yep. And it relies on a class, NavFrame, which I'm looking up right now. <Amgine> Trying to track down where the js is being added. <Amgine> Okay, I found it in this page <Amgine> http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Common.js <Amgine> It looks like it is heavily, heavily encumbered. <tony_> im pretty new to css, but for some reason i cant find the class called "translations" in the css files in a wiki page <Amgine> It isn't. <Amgine> The translations template is using a series of classes; the one we're looking at is NavFrame I believe. <Amgine> Wiktionary person says mw-collapsible is not allowed in the MobileFrontend either, so I'm asking the maintainer of that extension about it. <Amgine> Okay, they're right. collapse *doesn't* work on mobilefrontend. <sheac> Does it make sense for us to muck with it in our application? <sheac> Relatedly, some of our pages get cut off laterally because they're too wide: <sheac> … Coincidentally the Translations box (template?) <tony_> its just the translations and related.terms elements that get cut off i believe <sheac> You may be right. I only noticed it with translations <sheac> Ok, so this looks like something we want to chat with Dale and Patrick about. <sheac> In the meantime, are we partway through standups? <Amgine> Yep. <Amgine> Who has done what? <Amgine> (missed Friday so I am out of touch) <sheac> I can go <sheac> I've moved the bugs that I could confirm to our Bugzilla account <sheac> The Word of the Day button is fixed <sheac> And I've been spending my time trying to figure out our Saved Pages bug <sheac> (wherein clicking a Saved Page doesn't result in navigation to that page) <sheac> That last one has taken my up until now, and I'm still at it <sheac> I was going to ask Yuvi about it, since it looks like he was having some similar troubles with Wikipedia <Amgine> Yah, I haven't been able to connect with Yuvipanda for a couple days. <Amgine> I'll ask him to get in touch with you about that issue when I see him. <Amgine> Any other blockers? <sheac> Nope. That's it. <Amgine> Cool. Tony_: what has been happening officially? <tony_> i fixed the listen in last week and i havent had much to do since <Amgine> <grin> <Amgine> Okay: Announcements: Dlemieux is in California enjoying a game conference. <tony_> if it comes down to it, we can just parse the html to cut out elements <Amgine> Won't be to any of the meetings. <Amgine> (this week) <Amgine> I haven't got any other specific announcements, other than a huge thank you for the bugs, sheac. <sheac> no prob! <sheac> On that topic, we've already got a comment from someone on our translation TODO item <sheac> I'll grab a link to it... <Amgine> I think we should add everyone's e-mail addresses to the cc fields, and start assigning things (and marking as fixed, etc) <Amgine> So we are aware when people comment. <sheac> https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34834 <sheac> Well I got an email. I'm not sure if it's because it was my bug or what. <Amgine> Ah! Siebrand. Yes, you got an e-mail because it was your bug. <Amgine> He's the tranlations/i18n/i10n guru. <Amgine> Almost everything MediaWiki does is heavily translated to many many languages. He manages much of the work. <Amgine> I don't remember who was interested in the translation/i18n side of the app? <tony_> we only have those two new menu items that need translating right? <sheac> it should give details in the bug. <sheac> let me check <sheac> yeah - that's right. four items in messages-en.properties <sheac> but when we do the conversions from Wikipedia --> Wiktionary in the remaining places, we'll need to translate/transliterate those as well <Amgine> Okay. <Amgine> Just filed a bug, https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35018 <sheac> Looks great! Errr… "awful" ;) <Amgine> <laughs> <Amgine> Anyone have anything else to talk about for this standup? <Amgine> Sounds like we're done then. <sheac> agreed! <sheac> So I hope if Yuvi isn't too swamped he can suggest some avenues to look down with regard to this SavedPages bug. <Amgine> Yes. He was annoyed about something in phonegap, probably this, and was pulling it out by the roots from the sound of things. <sheac> yeah, i'm having trouble nailing it down, but there seem to be a couple things - maybe related, maybe not <sheac> it'd be great to see them through to resolution! :) <Amgine> <nods> Make sure there is a bug about that, and that it is assigned to you. <sheac> There's a bug for sure - thanks for reminding me to self-assign <Amgine> Tony_ You may want to troll through the outstanding bugs and grab any you plan on working on. <tony_> sure <Amgine> I will send an e-mail in the next couple hours to everyone, reminding about the Friday standups, and linking to this log.
