[worklog] Atami, a mix of new and old

I was in Atami, last Sunday, a city I like very much, because it is a bit an image of the Web. It is broken everywhere. There are many ghost buildings, abandonned real estate projects, failed businesses and the flow of new tourist and useless souvenirs. There's something with Atami which is pulling me down to Earth. Tune of the week: Gravity - John Mayer.

We had a webcompat team meeting on March 29, 2016.

Upgraded Mercurial, there is a security issue.

Adam Stevenson is restarting on the WebCompat team, and that's very good news for WebCompat. That's also cool for the Work week in London.

Talking about London. Trying to book my trip to London from Normandy in France to London. I will be flying from Japan to France in June 2016. So I will go to London from Dieppe by boat + train.

Webcompat issues

(a selection of some of the bugs worked on this week).

Gecko Bugs

Webcompat.com development

  • Mike started a discussion about classes of webcompat issues on webcompat.com. The discussion is harder than expected, because we maybe don't know what is the issue we are trying to solve. And maybe it's fine to drift. In the computing world, we have a tendency sometimes to be too focused (Problem solvers). There is also room and a need for drifting to be sure to explore the world and discover the hidden areas we can't see (ice plates under the snow). We will figure out in the end. A kind of Who, what, when, where, why, and how.
  • [Dushalni][dushalni] will probably restart the work on documentation.
  • I started working on uploaded images optimization a couple of weeks ago, found there was an issue in Pillow library with regards to animated gif. So this week I decided to take a deep breath and dived a bit more in the library.
