Status Report — October 21st, 2012

Wesley Ellis

Currently:

  • Still working on build plugin for reviewbot

Roadblocks:

  • None

Next:

  • Write some code for the build plugin

Jesus Zambrano

Currently:

  • Trying to get a better understanding of reviews.js and datastore.js

Roadblocks:

  • None.

Next:

  • Modify the bit in datastore.js that makes the server request when discard draft button is clicked.

Allyshia Sewdat

Currently:

  • Trying hard to get a functional patch in for preliminary review (adding JSLint plugin to ReviewBot). Considering just submitting half functional code to get some pointers but am trying to submit a working patch for proof of concept.

Roadblocks:

  • Can’t seem to call JavaScript file with arguments via command line with SpiderMonkey the way I’d need to. Looking for a workaround. Wondering if using more capable (but less light weight) JS engine like Node.js (which is more than an engine) would be appropriate.

Next:

  • Solve the above mentioned issue and commit.

Questions:

  • Thoughts on how tolerant we’d be of using a new module (python-spidermonkey) to facilitate calling JS functions in Python?

Aamir Mansoor

Currently:

  • Continue working on pluggable UI for Markdown. Specifically, working on the Backbone.js view and model to render contents of a Markdown file

Roadblocks:

  • None

Next:

  • Parse Markdown in Django using the “Markdown” package

John Sintal

Currently:

  • Working on rb diff and waiting for feedback.
  • Installed pep8 and pylint on my IDE Geany.

Roadblocks:

  • None

Next:

  • Wrap on rb diff and move to a new command.

Questions:

  • What would be my next command?
  • What kind of testing do you expect for these commands? (If any are needed)
  • Is tracking-branch and parent already support for my rb diff? I think it is by the options, but I’m having trouble testing it out.

Karl Leuschen

Currently:

  • Working on generalizing the key association that’s been roughed out for GitHub hosted repositories. A work-in-progress review is open (r/3429) for the feature branch, and have gotten some good feedback already.

Roadblocks:

  • None.

Next:

  • Decide on how to keep track of repositories that have an associated key, then implement and test. Start working out how it will all look from the web interface.

Tina Yang

Currently:

  • Trying to send out an in-progress code review for associating a FileAttachment with a binary FileDiff.

Roadblocks:

  • None.

Next:

  • Make the main file attachment list filter out FileAttachments that is associated with a FileDiff.

Currently:

  • Continue working on pluggable UI for Markdown. Specifically, working on the Backbone.js view and model to render contents of a Markdown file
  • Addressing the code review comments for issue 2552
  • Continuing to work on Pluggable UIs for images. Still need to set up the backend to view image comparisons and work on the actual image diffing.

Roadblocks:

  • None.

Next:

  • Figure out how the various image diffing views are implemented.

Sampson Chen

Currently:

  • Confirmed on using Docutils for RST, and Markdown 2.2.0 for .md.
  • Coordinated with Aamir: I will implement RST rendering for thumbnails with Docutil and he will implement Markdown for rendering .md in pluggable UI; then we will teach each other what we learned about each API (overall flow, hints, tips etc), and swap (i.e. I will then work on thumbnails for .md, and he will work on pluggable UI for RST)
  • Looked into Docutils’ architecture and particular the publisher API. Now implementing the calls into thumbnails infrastructure.
  • Getting started on blog post.

Roadblocks:

  • None

Next:

  • Hopefully finish implementing thumbnail rendering for RST at least by Sunday night.
