Re: [GMG-Devel] Apply to work on MediaGoblin for GSoC 2015!

Hi

I see no problem with that whatsoever, and I have been doing full time
contracting for Google for years.

But I recommend to look at Tom Lord's posts on the GNU GSOC list a few
years ago if you want to dig into that.

[GMG-Devel] Userops: Deployment for the People

Hello all,

After the strong response to Deb and I's talk at FOSDEM about
deployment, I promised that we'd figure out a place to continue
the discussion about user-oriented deployment.

We've started that list here:
  http://lists.mediagoblin.org/listinfo/userops

And I made a blogpost here:
  http://mediagoblin.org/news/userops.html

We also have a channel, #userops in irc.freenode.net

Onward and upward towards user liberation in the libre network services
deployment space!

[GMG-Devel] docs: Debian / rpm-based distros and sudo / root

Hi All,

As things are now, our docs start out by saying, "If you're on a
Debian-based system, do this . . . but if you're on a RPM-based system
do that . . . " but those types of distinctions end after the mention of
specific python packages (i.e., there are no Fedora/RHEL/CentOS
instructions for which postgres packages to install). Based on this,
should we include instructions for the Fedora/RHEL/CentOS family in the
official docs, or should we focus just on Debian in the official docs?
Right now, the instructions are 1/4-baked on the Fedora/RHEL/CentOS
side.  

Personally, I would like to include that family of distros as an
alternate, but don't want to muck-up the docs. It would be better to
have a documentation set that people can follow-along w/o having to
constantly "do this" for one platform or "do that" for another platform
[0].  For now, I think it would be better to provide top-notch
instructions for Debian, though. What do folks think?  This would mean
removing the notes about RPM-based distros in the start, and moving
those docs elsewhere. If folks would like to include Fedora/RHEL/CentOS
in the official docs, I could add-in my Fedora/RHEL/CentOS stuff.  I’m
not sure if it’s ready, though.

Also, there are alternate instructions for sudo and root. I’d like to
eliminate the root-based instructions, and just feature use of sudo
where appropriate.  (I was actually the one who did things this way . .
. in going through it, I don’t think it works well, though  : ).  If
anyone prefers to use root, they could certainly sort out the
differences and remove the “sudo” command as they go through things.

[GMG-Devel] Gitorious aquired by Gitlab

Hey there

Gitlab has announced, that it has aquired gitorious [1] and all projects 
are asked to move, since Gitorious will shut down in May this year. 
Gitlab offers a community-edition which has a MIT licence, but they do 
run the proprietary Gitlab CE version on their public hosting site 
gitlab.com [2].

Since Mediagoblin has moved from Transiflex to an FOSS solution, because 
they switched to a non FOSS licence, it’s likely that a switch to 
gitlab.com is not a valid option to go, right?

Since gitorious will go down quite soon, it probably would be best to 
look for a valid alternative soon.

cheers,
jan

[GMG-Devel] Be back Wednesday

Hello all,

If you're trying to reach me, just an update that I will be back on
Wednesday.  I am attending a family funeral, and this has made it hard
to stay in communication.

(The release will probably be pushed back by a week.)

See you all soon though!
