This is the status report for development on Input. I publish a status report to the input-dev mailing list every couple of weeks or so covering what was accomplished and by whom and also what I'm focusing on over the next couple of weeks. I sometimes ruminate on some of my concerns. I think one time I told a joke.
Last status report was at the end of June. This status report covers the last few things we landed in 2014q2 as well as everything we've done so far in 2014q3.

Current head: 7ea9fc3
At a high level, this is:
Landed automated Gengo human translation and a bunch of minor fixes to make it work more smoothly.
Reworked how we build development environments to use vagrant. This radically simplifies the instructions and should make it a lot easier for contributors to build a development environment. This in turn should lead to more people working on Input.
Fixed a bug where products marked as "hidden" were still showing up in the dashboard.
Implemented a GET API for Input responses. (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Input/Dashboards_for_Everyone)
Implemented the backend for the Heartbeat prototype. (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Input/Heartbeat)
Also, I'm fleshing out the Input section in the wiki complete with project plans. (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Input)
Over the next two weeks
Continue fleshing out project plans for in-progress projects on the wiki.
Gradient sentiment and product picker work.
What I need help with
We have a new system for setting up development environments. I've tested it on Linux. Ian has, too (pretty sure he's using Linux). We could use some help testing it on Windows and Mac OSX.
Do the instructions work on Windows? Do the instructions work on Mac OSX? Are there important things the instructions don't cover? Is there anything confusing?
I'm changing the way I'm managing Fjord development. All project plans will be codified in the wiki. A rough roadmap of which projects are on the drawing board, in-progress, completed, etc is also on the wiki. I threw together a structure for all of this that I think is good, but it could use some review.
Do these project plans provide useful information? Are there important questions that need answering that the plans do not answer?
If you're interested in helping, let me know! We hang out on
#input on irc.mozilla.org and there's the input-dev mailing list.
I think that covers it!
