BuddyPress’ dev chat has been moved to 19:00 UTC, due to the wonder of DST (America has already switched, and Europe follows early next week). #DST
#weekly-updates thread for the week of March 24th. What’s been happening in BuddyPress land, contributors?
#weekly-updates thread for the week of March 10th. If you’ve been contributing to BuddyPress this last week, please leave an update here with what you worked on and how it’s going, and if/what help you need.
Fact of the day: eight years ago today marks the date when the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter attained Martian orbit. It’s still out there today, doing wonderful Marsy things.
#weekly-updates time! As I write, it’s only about 303 days to Christmas, and about 30 days until the scheduled date for 2.0 beta 1. For people who are contributing towards specific tickets for 2.0, how are they going? Please post a status update here prior to Wednesday’s dev chat. Thanks!
Once upon a time, we had #agenda posts going up once a week before the dev chat. They kind of died out when we switched the frequency and time of the dev chats around, but now that we seem to be on a bit of a roll again, I’d like to suggest we try something similar.
The goal is to put individual updates in a more visible place (finding the IRC logs is kinda tricky) and, by moving a lot of the updates to this site, to free up more time in the dev chats to give everyone more time to talk to each other synchronously and ask questions. If a feature developer has other time commitments for a particular meeting, moving the updates to the bpdevel site will make sure that everyone has the opportunity to read an update from them. Let’s see how this works for a couple of weeks, and we can make changes as necessary.
I’ll publish a #weekly-updates post on this site every week, and for everyone who’s contributing to a ticket, please leave a comment on that week’s update post with a summary of you’ve done. As a prompt when writing these: tell everyone what you contributed to last week, and what you’re aiming to do this/next week.
Howdy, folks. Today’s dev chat is on as usual, but it’ll be pretty low key. We’re currently not planning to formally kick off the 2.0 development cycle until at least next week’s dev chat (22nd), which will give our survey a little more time to cook.
If anyone’s decided to contribute to 2.0 and has a particular area or focus they’d like to look at, but would like some guidance identifying some specific ticket or any help getting started, today’ll be a good time to get that help. See you there!
