Out of Sync Commits

Sometimes, when doing a post-review, other people’s commits show up in your diff, this is due to out-of-sync branches.

This is a common issue but the fix is fairly simple.

From the terminal inside your review board root directory, type the following commands:

$ git checkout master
$ git fetch origin
$ git fetch origin master
$ git pull origin master
$ git checkout "feature branch"
$ git merge master
$ post-review -r "review id"

 
Where “feature branch” is the name of your out-of-sync branch, and “review id” is the id of your posted review.

That’s it, your branches should now be in-sync.

Meeting Minutes for March 17th, 2012

Reminders:

  • We have 3 more meetings before wrapping up, depending on the size/scope of your project, you may want to reserve the last week to polish and document your project
  • If you don’t think you’re going to be able to finish your projects, it’s critical that you inform one of the mentors
  • Status reports should posted at least one hour before the meeting, so please send them ASAP

Anthony

  • Framework should be able to handle additional mimetypes through extensions
  • Thumbnails will be rendered as HTML allowing the author to decide on the looks
  • Generate a new comment class for full-file review comments

Steven

  • Requested reviews on extension documentation
  • ReviewBot next top priority

Jim

  • Requested review on r2966
  • Will be knocking off bugs till the end of the semester or picking up one of Christian’s suggested projects

Yazan

  • Static media should be placed in “/reviewboard/static”, htdocs is off-limits now
  • Need to attach “–tracking-branch=origin/master” flag to post-review github branch
  • Use imgur.com to post screenshots, get an account to group images

Dave

  • Waiting on review request for r2918
  • Next project is possibly “better binary files”
  • Possibly select one of the projects suggested by Christian along with jimrrchen

Curtis

  • Having trouble placing “select_related()” within the code
  • “review_request = review_request.select_related(‘diffset_history__diffsets’)” is the gist of the idea,  Christian will provide code in the review

Wilson

  • Merge conflict occurred, instructed on how to resolve it
  • Some files may have changed locations and may need to re-apply changes
  • Mockup “new submitters page” using wireframe to a layout similar to the dashboard’s

Willer

  • Requirements for “weekly headlines project” are not clear, approach explained here: ” groups.google.com/group/reviewboard-dev/browse_frm/thread/7efca0ae1e6173fc”
  • Had trouble running unit tests, will contact dev mailing list for support

Christian’s suggested projects:

  • “if you select text in, say, the description box, it opens, which it shouldn’t do”
  • “if you have the box open, and yo udidn’t modify it, you’ll still be asked if you’re sure you want to leave the page, which is painful when trying to close a review request”
  • “when someone closes a review request, the update bubble that appears later is that the review request is “updated.” It should be smarter and say it was closed”

Yazan: Winter 2011-2012 Plans

What was accomplished:

  • r2808: Add a collapse all button to reviews
  • r2816: Maximize issue summary width
  • Assist new students during sprint

What I plan on doing:

  • Fix the counters found on the dashboard
  • Add a javascript observer to auto-update dashboard counters without a need for a refresh
  • Introduce localization for javascript strings using babel or javascript_catalog
  • Enhance the visuals on the issue summary table
  • Add buttons to the issue summary table
  • Add “required” flags to review fields
  • Help mentors with tasks
  • Provide students with help and provide code reviews throughout the term

More ideas:

  • Add “types” to reviews (e.g.: bug fix/feature/enhancement/maintenance)
  • Add testing templates that speed up filling out the testing done field in a review as an extension

If  any compelling features or bug fixes are required or come up, they can supersede my project choices.
