Minutes of the Meeting:

  • Report for this week:
    • Minimum viable product for midterm: I've made a list of features I think that are easy+good to have based on the current working of catimages. You can find the list at the top of
    • Get involved in dependencies of catimages: This is a compilation of things that I followed up from what @jayvdb had suggested last time
      • Gave Yaafe python 3 support
      • bob mentioned that they are aware of the travis failing and they will fix it in their server (nothing I can do) link
      • cyvlfeat declined travis builds for py2.6 and 3.3 because conda doesnt support it anymore link
      • matplotlib has purposely removed 2.6 and 3.3 from their travis - they don't support it anymore. link
    • Contributions to commons - I got a few more edits on commons
    • Ping on mailing lists - I sent a mail to pywikibot, wikitech-I, commons-I mailing lists (Fae responded with some ideas and a dataset list)
    • Unidentified Faces - I did a bunch of research on unidentified faces. I tried using one of the method that catimages was using (haarcascades) and found that the default values gave lots of errors. Possibly I need to tweak it a lot more. I also tried to read on facebook's face detection - and realized it's not usable by us (even if it wasn't proprietary) because it simply compares the image with an existing dartabase of billions that are tagged by their users.
    • pytest - This is regarding the issue T115313. I did some stuff related to this like making pytest-attrib. @jayvdb was involved in pretty much everything so not giving a very detailed report of things done.
  • need to finish community bonding period by finishing report (write and sign-off)
