What’s on in koha-devel #16
Table of contents
We passed the feature freeze dates and Friday is string freezehat means no patch with will be pushed for the next two weeks to let time to translator to update the new strings.
I have added a new step to the RM workflow to generate the release notes when something is pushed.
That means you can follow what has been pushed in the current release – https://gitlab.com/joubu/koha-release-notes/blob/master/release_notes_17_06_00.md
I (Jonathan Druart) have proposed to continue my Release Manager job for the next release cycle (18.05), you can have a look at my proposal on the wiki https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Proposal_for_RM_18.05_joubu
Two documentation meetings have been organised last months: September 28th and October 19thne is next week on November 13th.
A lot of work has been done to make the new version of the manual ready for the 17.11 release. New chapters have been written, old ones have been updated.
If you want to join the fun, you can add your name to the Documentation Team for 18.05.
Regarding the translation the strings from the old manual have been extractede need some coordination to integrate them into Pootle. When it will be done the manual will be translatable in your language and you will be able to participate translating it!
Last time I told you that Tomas and I were working on mak our Continous Integration server (aka Jenkins) better.
It now runs the full test suite successfully, in a dockerised container.
Now we have all of our supported releases that run it the same way, and pass! Well, today 1 test from 17.05 is failing.
This never happened before!
I that we encounter speed issuehe test suite was executed in 3h30 vs 2h before the change.
To reduce it we removed the code coverage (Devel::Cover) part and now it is executed in 30min (lot of polar bears will ).
We can still generate the code coverage report on demand, when needed.
If you want to track what’s going on in the Koha community you must add the new Koha agenda to your own! https://koha-community.org/calendar/
It contains the next meetings and we will certainly add the next Koha events. Let know if you want to add .
If you want to tell us something, highlight a problem, or start a discussion, it is the place to do it (do not forget to add the topic on the agenda!).
