What is pyvideo.org
pyvideo.org is an index of Python-related conference and user-group videos on the Internet. Saw a session you liked and want to share it? It's likely you can find it, watch it, and share it with pyvideo.org.
Over the last year, a number of things have led to a tangled mess of tasks that need to be done that were blocked on other tasks that were complicated by the fact that I had half-done a bunch of things. I've been chipping away at various aspects of things, but most of them were blocked on me finishing infrastructure changes I started in November when we moved everything to Rackspace.
I finally got my local pyvideo environment working and a staging environment working. I finally sorted out my postgres issues, so I've got backups and restores working (yes--I test restores). I finally fixed all the problems with my deploy script so I can deploy when I want to and can do it reliably.
Now that I've got all that working, I pushed changes to the footer recognizing that Sheila and I are co-adminning (and have been for some time) and that Rackspace is graciously hosting pyvideo.
In the queue of things to do:
- finish up some changes to richard and then update pyvideo to the latest richard
- re-encode all the .flv files I have from blip.tv into something more HTML5-palatable (I could use help with this--my encoding-fu sucks)
- fix other blip.tv metadata fallout--for example most of the PyGotham videos have terrible metadata (my fault)
- continue working on process and tools to make pyvideo easier to contribute to
That about covers it for this status report.
