Community Meeting Recap (2024-06-03)

[Meeting start]

This week we discussed our process for updating data in the Catalog, and in particular the use of the batched update DAG versus the introduction of cleanup steps into the data refresh. As a result of this discussion noted here, this PR to decode and deduplicate tags during the data refresh was closed in favor of a solution that uses the batched update DAG, similar to this PR which trims and deduplicates tags using batched updates.

Prioritization of Implementation Plan: Switch Python package management away from Pipenv

The maintainers discussed what options exist for package managers in Python outside of Pipenv, and how best to proceed. Some community feedback was provided about the different tooling. The team decided to try out a few options prior to drafting the implementation plan, and have the IP issue an opinionated approach based off the advantages/disadvantages identified in the exploration.

We had 1 item on our agenda:

What’s the plan for launching additional search views? Can we this week? Should we draft a make post; do we need a rollback plan (in case the APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. changes caused trouble in prod, for example)?

There is still work to be done before launching the project, specifically:

  1. Use search query parameters for additional search views in the API #3887
  2. Add SEO properties to the collection pages #3917 (needs discussion)

After completing the issues, we can discuss the details of the launch.

We had 1 item on our agenda:

When should we add ccMixter to the Django Admin content provider list? And should we make a public announcement about their addition?

We decided to keep this item on the Agenda for the next week, and clarify some problems with it in the mean time:

  1. The preview URLs don’t work on the frontend, so the users cannot play them. @aetherunbound offered to contact ccMixter to clarify if we are using their APIAPI An API or Application Programming Interface is a software intermediary that allows programs to interact with each other and share data in limited, clearly defined ways. correctly, and how we can fix the preview URLs.
  2. The API returns 500 due to the AudioAltFile serializer.

This meeting didn’t have any agenda items. We did however discuss and confirm that we should always create GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/ issues for necessary project documents (implementation and project plans, for example).

    • Patricia BT asked us for an introductory video (since we don’t have any member from our team registered as a mentor).
    • We could search for a video like that from the times we introduced Openverse to many different folks over the last couple of years. If not found, Zack offered to make a short video.
    • We did not reach any conclusions because some maintainers were absent so we’ll discuss this later separately.
