Dividing the work between developers

Agenda

Postponed from last month, and only needing to be discussed if there are remaining issues or questions after the mailing list discussion.

--Ibennetch 15:45, 14 October 2015 (CEST)

Meeting

To recap:

  • Madhura still security coordinator
  • Issue tracker used extensively to divide work
  • Both developers doing bugfix (depending on the number of incoming bugs) and enhancements

Vote on membership changes

Agenda

  • Chirayu wants to step down from the team
  • New team members: Deven Bansod, Dan Ungureanu

--Nijel 16:56, 3 November 2015 (CET)

Meeting

Both proposals were accepted.

Theme configuration directives

Agenda

For quite a long time the theme configuration directives have been under a $cfg array but are defined exclusively in themes/themename/layout.inc.php. See for example http://docs.phpmyadmin.net/en/latest/config.html?highlight=mainbackground#cfg_MainBackground. Note that in files under themes/themename/css they are referred to as $GLOBALS['cfg']['something']. This brings a possible confusion (like myself trying to add such directive in config.inc.php) so maybe we should move these directives under another array (starting with 4.6 and its themes)

--Lem9 23:55, 4 November 2015 (CET)

Meeting

As it's unclear how ofter users are changing the themes, and as they currently need to do the change in layout.inc.php, we will remove the theme-specific configuration directives from the doc and just point users to respective layout.inc.php. Marc will do that.

GSoC 2016

Agenda

  • Who will be our org admin and backup org admin?
  • Other wiki pages to set up

Meeting

  • Potential mentors have until Nov. 25 to add their ideas to the list
  • A "Theme creation tool" idea will be added
  • A "Download customization tool" idea will be added
    • Those two features might be combined (workload to evaluate)
  • Marc will be the org admin, with Isaac as the backup

Packagist (follow-up)

Agenda

Meeting

  • The Packagist theme does not seem to want to implement anything special for us
  • Dan will document how to use our composer package

--Lem9 16:08, 10 November 2015 (CET)

Ability to disable the navigationhiding Feature

Agenda

Meeting

We won't add configuration directives to disable these features, but will just use the existing directives where one defines the corresponding table. It was suggested that some value (for example null or 'disable') would indicate that this feature is disabled with no warning in the configuration storage verification page.

Suggestion for milestone 4.6.0

Agenda

I suggest March 1, 2016 for 4.6.0. At this point I believe we'll have enough new features and refactoring in the master branch.

This would mean that GSoC 2016 would target a 4.7.0 release.

Meeting

Accepted.
