GROK MEETING 1
1. Status of the works started during the Forest Sprint 1
2. Write down an agenda for the next meeting
1. Status of the different tasks
A. Christian Klinger started to split the XMLRPC and REST
components out of the Grok Package. The xmlrpc part is nearly
finished. For REST, the problem lies in the traversers handling
the GET/POST/UPDATE. Martijn Faassen suggested to split these
into another package 'grokcore.traverser'.
Concerns : some of us objected that having too many grokcore
packages would be harmful in the long run, especially packages
that are not really reusable (traversers rely on a publisher hack)
Decisions : we will carry on with the splits and additionnal
grokcore packages (keeping in mind the expressed concerns)
B. J-W, JanJaap and Martijn worked on 'fanstatic', the new
resource publisher, that allows to serve resource without using
the zope publisher (WSGI middleware). An alpha version is almost
ready for a release and the grokproject branch will be updated
with the latest code, so we can test it.
Concerns : some of us still use 'static'. We need to test how it
can work/behave with fanstatic.
Decisions : we need to give feedbacks in order to progress here.
C. The Documentation is almost ready to replace the current Grok
site. We need, however, to focus on updating the API reference
that is outdated, especially since the last changes. Sylvain
proposed to have a script extracting the classes docstring in
order to keep the doc up to date, without too much efforts. That
means keeping the code's docstrings at a high level of quality
Concerns : We need more doc writers !!!
Decisions : we need to dump the rest of the 'presentation' pages
from the current site to the new documentation and deploy the new
documentation with a daily build (J-W will do that)
D. In order to release the new Grok, with the latest work on
martin and grokcore.component, we need to assert the state of
the grokcore.view branch about the template registry.
Concerns : nobody wants to do it.
Decisions : Someone has to, though, but not alone. Sylvain agreed
to have a look into it with the help of J-W (and Souheil if he
can help in anything.)
2. Agenda for the next meeting (that is going to be every 2 weeks)
A. Status on the template registry branch of grokcore.view merging
B. Feedback on fanstatic (if not before on ML)
C. Feedback on the splitting of .rest .xmlrpc .traversers
D. write documentation
Stay tuned, I'll doodle a date for the next meeting.
