Some repos details

see Content repository and talk page for starters.

notes on gitweb editing

can you start a gitweb page linked from the git wiki page, describing how one would go about editing documentation for a code project within gitweb? Examples would be most helpful. Sj talk 20:05, 28 August 2007 (EDT)

  • I don't know what to write on such a page: since gitweb doesn't provide an editor interface, the appropriate procedure to make a change to the transcluded content is to check out the cited git repo, modify the file, and submit the changes to the owner of the upstream repo by email or by publishing your clone and asking upstream to pull from you. --Ashsong 13:37, 29 August 2007 (EDT)
    • Ah. I thought there was a way to add such changes to an automatic untrusted branch... co + local modification + submit-to-someone is much too complicated for small wiki changes, and the cloning would need to take place transparently... Sj talk
      • Bernie and I talked about it, and it's not hard, but it requires several hours of work. --Ashsong 16:45, 29 August 2007 (EDT)

how can we tell what the revision # of the doc being transcluded is, and when it was last edited? that would be most useful to filter up to the wiki page. Sj talk 20:32, 28 August 2007 (EDT)

  • This is quite easy to do; we just include a link to the doc's history page. To get to the history page for a doc instead of the raw contents of the doc, change the a=blob_plain; argument of the url to a=history;. For the record, a=commitdiff; also provides an interesting view. --Ashsong 13:37, 29 August 2007 (EDT)
    • But programmatic filtering up to the page where it is transcluded? Is there an api call we could make? Sj talk
      • Nope. On the other hand, the transclusion currently picks out the most recent version of the page, so (at the moment), it's easy to figure out what you're looking at. --Ashsong 16:45, 29 August 2007 (EDT)

a mesh of thoughts

Related to our discussions the other night: see User:Sj/U and content network. Still no good conncetions to memebrand, hal, corba or plan 9 plumbing. --Sj leave me a message 21:23, 8 January 2008 (EST)

hal and corba came up in discussion of the utility of pyxpcom as general platform, as well :)

thoughts on bundle metadata and required files

see bundle_metadata...

dynamic library use cases and notes

See Dynamic library for a cleaner presentation of use cases for dynamic browsable views. If there are good alternatives to doing this through a local webserver, please mention them... --Sj talk 20:24, 13 February 2008 (EST)

Internship project page model

Take a look at the projects in Category:Summer_of_Content_proposals and see if you can come up with a few dozen of the same for internship project ideas. --Sj talk 22:19, 15 March 2008 (EDT)

Thank you

for keeping pages like: in your userspace for notekeeping. Thanks for doing your part to fight forest fires (whoops, wrong macro...) Seth 07:32, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

mwiki dumps

here are xml dumps for you. poke me for full sql dumps as well. --Sj talk 06:22, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

activity pack update troubles?

see talk:installing an activity pack.

some thoughts and opportunities

I've written up some project ideas and comments about what I find to be the most pressing useful issues to address at User:Sj/thoughts. --Sj talk 06:10, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Internships / Travel to deployments

I've gotten some pushback and flak about getting people to go to deployments actually. It's a good idea to start writing about now regardless of what OLPC is planning to support. I've been talking to the Afghanistan deployment and hopefully the Iraqi deployment about volunteers (like Bernie) going to these locations. I'm not sure where it's going yet. I have a lot of other bridges to build first. *sigh* so much to do, so little time. Seth 04:47, 16 October 2008 (UTC)


Not Joementum... :)
