[GMG-Devel] Dylan Jeffers to work on an Android MediaGoblin application for GSoC

Hello all!

I'm happy to say that Dylan Jeffers' proposal for an Andoid application
for GSoC has been accepted:

  http://www.google-melange.com/gsoc/project/details/google/gsoc2015/sapientech/5676830073815040

This application will make use of the Pump API... exciting!

Boris Bobrov (breton on IRC) and I will be co-mentoring this project.

Please congratulate Dylan!  And good luck on your project!

 - Chris

(PS: Dylan, did you know that a very interesting programming language
shares your name?)

[GMG-Devel] Gitorious->Savannah for the main repo

Hey all,

Since as probably everyone knows by now, gitorious.org is going
read-only, so we had to move our code.  We've now moved our git repo to
Savannah:

  https://savannah.gnu.org/projects/mediagoblin

We're only using the git repo there.  You can update your checkout's
origin like so:

  git remote set-url origin git://git.savannah.gnu.org/mediagoblin.git

Did you have commit access in the past?  Please register on savannah and
email me your username.  You can then switch like:

  git remote set-url origin
YOUR-USERNAME-HERE@...:/srv/git/mediagoblin.git 

This may not be permanent, but it's a solution for the meanwhile.  We
are very grateful to the Savannah team for hosting this for us
though... that's very valuable at the moment.

Now to figure out what to do about Trac, amirite? ;P

Thanks!  And thanks to Boris Bobrov for setting us up on Savannah.
 - Chris

[GMG-Devel] problems with pagination links

Hi I've setup a new mg install and I'm having issues with the pagination
links at the foot of the page. The links are missing the base url and
appear like this "http:///?page=2"

The cause of the problem may be that I've experimented a bit and tried
one of the alternative deployment methods suggested in the wiki using
uwsgi. https://wiki.mediagoblin.org/Deployment#uwsgi_with_configs

I am running the master branch of mg.

My new nginx config looks like this:
https://paste.debian.net/hidden/dd3b1471/

And I have setup a runit script that launches the uwsgi process
https://paste.debian.net/hidden/00fe4115/

Additionally I have another runit script that launches the celery process.

And actually all of this seems to be working quite well. I can create
new users, login, and upload media. In fact, the only issue so far seems
to be the pagination links at the foot of the page.

Can anyone offer me any suggestions for debugging this?

[GMG-Devel] flatpagesfile setup

Hi,

I'm attempting to setup the flatpagesfile plugin for a new mg install.

I've followed the directions in this guide:
http://mediagoblin.readthedocs.org/en/stable/plugindocs/flatpagesfile.html#flatpagesfile-chapter

But it is not clear ro me from this guide exactly where the suggested
"local_templates" directory should be created.

thanks in advance for any advice.

[GMG-Devel] Database Migration Docs

Hello,

Recently I decided to migrate the GMG database of my instance from SQLite to
PostgreSQL. I asked on IRC how to do it, and the answer was that GMG itself
doesn't do migrations (just DB table initialization), and I'd need to find a
tool that converts databases between these two systems.

I did what seems to be a successful migration at

<http://media.rel4tion.org>

And I documented all my steps at

<http://www.rel4tion.org/people/fr33domlover/gmg-db-migration/>

I hope this can be useful to other people doing the same thing. Just wanted to
let everyone know, especially if it's something worth putting in the GMG wiki
(but I'm not claiming high quality of that document, after all I'm just a
random user running a small GMG instance).

Any kind of feedback, review, comments, suggestions, etc. very welcome :-)

NOTE: The method described in that document isn't necessarily the shortest one.
Perhaps some automated tool can do the whole thing in a single command. But
what I do know is that the method I used is:

- Quick enough, very little "repetitive" work
- Seems to work, my instance is a live example/proof

[GMG-Devel] Upgrade report: Debian 8, 0.7.1 -> 0.8.0-dev

Hi everybody
I have two instances of mediagoblin running in a Debian 8 (Jessie)
machine. Both were in 0.7.1 and with the systemd init scripts from Joar.
Today I have successfully upgrade them to 0.8.0, so here is my upgrade
report.

This is how I did it:

0.- Upgrade my Debian (apt update && apt dist-upgrade -u) and restart
services or restart the box if needed.

1.- Become root:

sudo su

2.- Stop mediagoblin services:

/etc/init.d/mediagoblin-celery stop
/etc/init.d/mediagoblin-paster stop

3.- Become mediagoblin user

su mediagoblinp -s /bin/bash

4.- Backup the database

pg_dump mediagoblin > /home/larjona/backups_mediagoblin/20150415.sql

5.- Change directory to my mediagoblin installation

Re: [GMG-Devel] [GNU MediaGoblin] #5311: Improve plugin documentation

Hi everybody
I cannot send comments to the issue in trac, they get rejected:

Submission rejected as potential spam - SpamBayes determined spam
probability of 100.00%

I thought it was because I was including the URL to my branch, but tried
with gitorious dot
org/mediagoblin/larjonas-mediagoblin/source/39bf1cf8e1d9621ba9f1a39df5ec9d350ca787e7

and got the same result.

So I'm sending this to trac by mail (not sure if it works) and to the
list (if the mail submission is disabled or rejected, I hope any of you
can update the issue for me).

Re: [GMG-Devel] devel Digest, Vol 45, Issue 7

Just make separate pages for each set of instructions. Debian, Arch,
Fedora/RHEL/CentOS.

I'm thinking:
https://mediagoblin.readthedocs.org/en/stable/siteadmin/deploying/yourdistro.html

Move Debian instructions to the Debian page, clean them up a bit and get
rid of the non-Debian parts. Put up construction signs on the other
instruction pages while they're being worked on.

The extention idea sounds cool, but why use JS when you could just make
a freakin' directory?

Just my 2cents.
