[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!
 - Chris

[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!

Hello,

I have been translating various free software packages and I must say I
agree.
Transifex allows you to download and upload a PO file, but IIRC you need to
run nonfree JS in your web browser for this to work. I also tried using the
`tx` program once, but for a reason I don't remember it failed. The point

[GMG-Devel] 0.7.0 freeze!

Hello all,

0.7.0 is *frozen*!  This means that from now until release (hopefully
next Monday, the 11th), we'll be focusing on bug fixes only.

You can help!  Here are several ways to help:
 - Translate!
   https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/mediagoblin/

 - Test the code!  Can you upgrade from one version to another okay?  Do
   the various features seem to work right?  Are the docs working nicely?
   http://mediagoblin.readthedocs.org/en/latest/

 - Test the new pump-based API!  More docs on this over the next day or
   so, though there are already quite a few docs (see the Pump API
   section):
   http://mediagoblin.readthedocs.org/en/latest/index.html#part-5-pump-api

 - Test the new command line batch upload feature:
   http://mediagoblin.readthedocs.org/en/latest/siteadmin/commandline-upload.html#command-line-batch-uploading

Thanks!  It'll be an exciting week ahead! :)
