Thanks for asking Sumit Srivastava: Sorry about that Jui. Please stay safe. It's hard. Jui Pradhan: Agreed callaurrea: No updates. Chihurumnaya Ibiam: You can ask Devin I think as he's the one who made the last payment. walterbender: Chihurumnaya Ibiam after the meeting, let's see if we can figure it out otherwise, I will ask Devin to help My only other topic is GSoC We got 8 slots and I think we have the students/mentors selected Chihurumnaya Ibiam: Agreed. walterbender: We cannot make any public announcement of whom we selected until Monday llaske_: Yes we've got 8 students and at least one mentor and backup mentor for each walterbender: But speaking from the Music Blocks team, a very strong pool llaske_: Please double check one the GSoC dashboard that it's okay on your side walterbender: thks to Jui, Perrie, and Lionel Chihurumnaya Ibiam: Yeah. callaurrea: Thanks everyone walterbender: looks good to me Any other business to discuss? callaurrea: Can you share the GSoC dashboard? Chihurumnaya Ibiam: Nothing from me. walterbender: callaurrea I will send you a snapshot as a private message --- we cannot share it publicly yet callaurrea: ok llaske_: Else I can invite you as mentor callaurrea: I wanted to get a sense of the projects... Chihurumnaya Ibiam: The ideas are here https://github.com/sugarlabs/GSoC/blob/master/Ideas-2021.md. walterbender: I think I mentioned last time that I was about to release MusicBlocks 3.x before we move on to MusicBlocks 4.0 this summer. I am very very close... just chasing down a few regressions. callaurrea: thanks! walterbender: FWIW, we went from ~ 2000 lint errors to 0 lint errors :P Chihurumnaya Ibiam: Yeah you did, I was looking at your refactor PR earlier. Sumit Srivastava: Rocketship Great progress walterbender: Chihurumnaya Ibiam still pushed a few small changes Chihurumnaya Ibiam: Yeah, a lot of work done. callaurrea: walterbender are you still doing workshops? Jui Pradhan: Sounds amazing! walterbender: the plugin system was completely broken (before my refactor) and I am determined to fix it... mostly working now) and I need to pull in a few patches that landed after I began my refactor Chihurumnaya Ibiam: Looking forward to testing the new release. walterbender: alas, a lot of plugins were using mashape, but that is now rapidAPI and behind a paywall. I cannot fix those :( Chihurumnaya Ibiam: I'm guessing they'd be retired or migrated to another API. walterbender: We need to find replacement APIs Sumit Srivastava: Try searching for forks and find the most popular OSS. It will probably be compatible. Like MongoDB to DocumentDB llaske_: Technically MongoDB is not OSS walterbender: I don't want to hold up the release on that perrieee: Re GSoC; Lionel, I made a request to join to mentor the MB projects, as they’d require design inputs. Sumit Srivastava: That's why DocumentDB was introduced after it moved away from OSS. walterbender: perrieee that'd be most welcome llaske_: @perrie did you add your name to the mentor list of the projects ? walterbender: We plan to meet every weekday at 11:30UTC with the mentors and students for a quick standup meeting like we did last summer... it worked out well perrieee: On GitHub? Yes I did earlier llaske_: No on the GSoC dashboard perrieee: Oh I just did that now llaske_: That's fine we've got until 7th June to finalize mentors list callaurrea: About fundraising and before I forget. It will be good to think about it more seriously when we get the non-profit status we can think about projects/priorities... and invite my nice to present Sumit Srivastava: What status do we have currently? walterbender: limbo waiting on our application Sumit Srivastava: Oh. callaurrea: It takes a few months. walterbender: at least a few any other business? llaske_: Not on my side
