[GMG-Devel] SQLAlchemy unicode error when trying to upload audio file.

I'm running a fresh copy of Mediagoblin 0.7.0 with the image, audio, and video plugins enabled. I attempted to upload an OGG file, and it initially appeared to work, but then showed up in the "failed to process" section of the media processing panel with nothing filled in for reason or metadata. The odd thing is that if I navigate directly to the URL of the generated webm (mgoblin_media/media_entries/<number>/<file name>.medium.webm), I can play the file just fine, so I know that it's transcoding correctly.

The only error I get is this warning in celery.log:

/srv/www/mediagoblin/lib/python2.7/site-packages/SQLAlchemy-0.8.7-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg/sqlalchemy/engine/default.py:459: SAWarning: Unicode type received non-unicode bind param value.

Since there's no stack trace, I don't know where the source of the warning is in mediagoblin's code, but this is all I have to go off of.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
~Damien

[GMG-Devel] Header dropdown always visible in sandyseventiesspeedboat

Hello,

first of all, congratulations for the work!
I discovered mediagoblin recently and found it very useful and promising =D

I am running a pubblic instance of mediagoblin at
http://mediagoblin.novoaeon.com.br/ and recently updated to 0.7.0 ,
had some problems with something about rdfa11.jsonld
but fortunately have found that current master is working ok =)

I've changed to new theme sandyseventiesspeedboat (that is very
beautiful! congratulations again!) but the header_dropdown element is
always visible so when I log in and go to home page, the element is
over the main content =T

I took a look with firebug and all 22 requests are ok, also there is
nothing shown on the javascript console.

should I report a bug on tracker?

sorry for not goind further before asking help but I am not a python
programmer, altough i have a php and apache background =)

Kind regards,

[GMG-Devel] Upgrading to 0.7.0? Please "git submodule init"

Hello all!

Unfortunately, I forgot to add "git submodule init" to the instruction
upgrade part of the docs... this is unfortunate, because if you're
coming from 0.6.X you'll be missing both skeleton (Your theme will look
really weird if you don't!  Your media will come up right against the
edge of the page!) and you'll be missing the new jpope sandy speedboat
theme!

Sorry about this everyone... it's my mistake for leaving it out of the
docs.  I'm looking at how to resolve the issue so the docs that people
go to aren't totally wrong.  The trouble is that the docs are currently
pointing at 0.7.0, when maybe they should be pointing at git master... I
could override the tag maybe, but I'm not sure if that's unacceptable or
not... personally, I tend to think of tags as immutable...

Thanks!  And sorry for that!

Heya,

Sorry about taking so long to reply to this thread.

Transifex was not originally proprietary when we started to use it... it
was free software, GPLv2, and python based.  We were also using it at
Creative Commons when I worked there, and it was well liked.

https://github.com/transifex/transifex still has the old free software
codebase.  Unfortunately it is no longer maintained, and Transifex went
proprietary, and we weren't aware... it slipped under my radar.  I
hadn't realized it until they sent me an email mentioning that they were
excited to be patenting their Transifex Live system, which lead to a
"WTF?" moment.  Until that moment, I thought Transifex was still free
software.

We'll be moving to something else, but I am a bit overloaded, and weo
need to get 0.7.0 out the door along with rewards.  After that I'll be
looking at moving us over.

Yes, MediaGoblin relying on proprietary software is unacceptable.  We
didn't realize it was happening because that rug was pulled out of our
feet while we were still standing on it.

If someone wants to volunteer to help with the move, we'll probably
either be moving to WikiTranslate or Pootle.

Thanks!

[GMG-Devel] MediaGoblin Campaign quick update: Rewards about to ship, new hire, 0.7.0 frozen

Subject: MediaGoblin Campaign quick update: Rewards about to ship, more

==============================

Hello all,

We've been quiet lately, but that's because things have been so busy!
We'll have more announcements over the next week, but this email is to
give a couple of updates and also a heads up.

So first the heads up: If you've been wondering where the rewards are
at, they're about to ship!  This has taken longer than expected... there
were some unexpected hiccups from the donor list export we got, but
those issues are now fixed.  The rewards are all in (well, the last
batch of Goblin Force badges are 3d printing right now on our Lulzbot
and still need to be spray-painted, but we're otherwise good to go) and
we will begin shipping next week.  (We'll also post pictures next week
as we start packing the rewards up!)

If your address has changed for some reason, *please* let us know
ASAP.  You can send me an email to this address, but we'll begin
shipping early next week (probably Monday)!

Okay, next the exciting news.  I hinted that we may be hiring another
person on board... I'm happy to say we've now hired Jessica Tallon as a
full time developer on GNU MediaGoblin using funds raised from the
campaign.  Thank you all... you made this possible!

  http://mediagoblin.org/news/welcome-jessica-tallon.html

This has already paid off... we've already landed the first pieces
towards federation, which will help us roll out a new cool upload API in
the next release.

Speaking of the next release, 0.7.0 is *right around the corner*.  We
are working on that release as we speak, so I'd better get back to it!

Thanks again for supporting the project!  Things are really swimming
along at the moment... and that's thanks to your help!
