Python Miro Community status: 01-22-2011

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I haven't posted the PyCon 2011 videos to Python Miro Community, yet. First, I was waiting for Ogg Theora versions of the videos to get posted. Then I was waiting for Miro Community 1.2 to get released. Now I'm waiting for duplicate Ogg Theora versions of the videos to get removed so that I can successfully pull in all the videos without fear of them getting moved around and the urls to get stale.

A month ago, I knew we were doing some things we hadn't done before and therefore it was going to take longer than it usually does. But I never expected it to take this long. It's sort of been a perfect storm of things to block on.

Regardless, the Miro Community released 1.2 and it includes a bunch of fixes to the admin side of the site that make some things doable again. Additionally, it includes a few fixes I submitted upstream--these are my first contributions to Miro Community to fix issues I was working around with Python Miro Community. I look forward to fixing some more things especially now that I have a working Miro Community development environment. Congratulations to the Miro Community team on a successful release!

That's where things are at. I haven't forgotten about PyCon 2011--it's just taking a lot longer than I expected it to.
