Dev call April 20th, 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 It's likely this is out of date and not representative.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.

Order of business:

  • Several of us spent some time hunting for good quality podcast directories and other than the iTunes directory and Miro Guide, there isn't anything out there.

  • Talked about when we're going to call this release done, when we're going to do a code freeze, and how we prioritize things over the next week.

  • Talked about using the severity field to denote critical/blocker and everything else.

  • Miro is developed by a community of people including you! If you can't contribute your time and work to development, testing, and translations, please consider contributing funding by donating. Your money goes directly to ongoing development of Miro and related projects like Miro Community and Universal Subtitles. See for more details on these projects.

  • Did you know there's a Miro User Manual? If you haven't looked at it yet, it's worth taking a look at. You can find it at
