The pandemic is still going on. Hence, last year's considerations still apply as a result Summit 21 is again going to be held over internet, live from your living room.

Virtual summit

We will be using Zoom for our sessions:

Zoom requires you to install software prior to the meeting, so please take some time ahead of the start of the summit to install the software and test your audio setup.

Live streaming

The sessions will additionally be live streamed on the MetaBrainz YouTube channel:

  • Localization workshop - presentation of translation tools and "translathon"
  • To be determined.
  • React server-side-rendering for all brainzes (alastair)
    • more and more of our sites have interactive components which we use react for, however the standard "react app" pattern means that we send an empty page + js and render on the client. MB and BB use server-side rendering. Proposal to do the same for LB (and perhaps later CB and AB) so that we can ship functional html to the client but still take advantage of react features. Discuss pain points in MB/BB and if we think it's a good idea or not.
  • MetaBrainz wide Pull request review policy -- I think we should have a consolidated PR review policy. (ruaok)
  • Code formatting guideline for PythonBrainz. We're iffy in this front, but vaguely follow the Peppinator. Lets standardize properly. (ruaok)
  • Replication with dbmirror2 (bitmap)
    • Presents dbmirror2 as a proposed replacement for DBMirror. Gives some technical background, issues it solves, and how it will be useful for JSON dumps and sir. Discusses some possible deployment questions.
