I spent 20 or so hours over the last few weeks working through the
for Python Miro
Community and making changes to the site. We've almost posted
all of the PyCon 2010 videos--I think there are three or four more
still in the queue including one of the lightning talks.
I've created a bunch of bugs in
Community bug tracker for bugs that I've encountered and
enhancements that would make the site and curation of the site
better. Miro Community is a Free Software project, so I'm hoping to
find free time to fix/implement some of those.
Carl Karsten is now a curator on the site--that makes two of us.
He's been a huge help so far. Having someone to bounce ideas off of
makes it a lot easier and he brings a lot of enthusiasm to the site.
Right now we're coordinating things through email and we're
tentatively going to use the pycon-av mailing list for PMC
discussion. If we need to switch to another mailing list, then
we'll do that.
At Carl's suggestion, we added a new category of categories for
Python user groups. The three groups we have listed now
(Atlanta, GA). The PyAtl videos are mostly from last year--I need
to catch up with a PyAtl member to find out what's going on. There
are only two BostonPy videos now, but the group is interested in
doing more. The ChiPy videos are fantastic. Additionally, Pior
from Montreal-Python is working on getting their video workflow
working--I really look forward to seeing their sessions.
I've been tagging videos that I think are good for Python beginners
with the tag "python-basics". At some point in the near future,
we're going to move some/all of those videos into
Python category. There's a large amount of decent introductory
material for Python out there ranging from videos on YouTube to
tutorials at PyCon. I think this category will make it easier for
people new to Python to get their feet wet quickly and easily.
On a slightly related note,
the Universal Subtitles
an alpha demo of their system. I'm looking forward to this
project reaching a stable status since I'm planning to use it on PMC
to add subtitle/transcription to all videos on Python Miro
Community. The project is in Django and it's Free Software. If
you're interested in this work,
sure could use the help.
That's it for this status report. Any thoughts, questions or
concerns--let me know.
