Anfang November haben einige Mitglieder der deutschsprachigen Community von LibreOffice auf der Open Rhein Ruhr überlegt, für LibreOffice einen Stammtisch zu veranstalten. Er sollte in Duisburg noch im Jahr 2017 stattfinden. Ich habe dafür die Initiative ergriffen und es wurde dann – nach einer kleinen Umfrage auf der Mailingliste – der 15. Dezember.
Wir haben uns am letzten Freitag im Cafe Museum in der Duisburger Innenstadt, in fußläufiger Entfernung zum Bahnhof getroffen. Neben bekannten Gesichtern fanden auch mehrere an LibreOffice Interessierte den Weg an den Stammtisch (West). Es wurde sehr lebhaft über verschiedene Themen rund um LibreOffice und die Community diskutiert. Die Zeit verging wie im Fluge und die letzten haben erst nach fünf Stunden den Heimweg angetreten mit dem Wunsch, den Stammtisch im nächsten Jahr am gleichen Ort zu wiederholen.
I worked on two new Python scripts for the administration of the LibreOffice extensions and templates website. I need a list of projects that are in the review state private. The second new script lists all releases that are only in the review state pre-release. This means they have not published yet and are not visible for the user of the website. I published the scripts in my repository on Github.com.
I worked on my Python script to get a list of active and not active users out of the Plone instance that is running the LibreOffice extensions and templates website and finished this script today. I run this script and got the list of currently active versus nonactive users. I’ll use the results of today to compare them with the results which I get in about two weeks. I’ll use the findings to have a closer look onto some accounts.
I uploaded my presentation (in German language) that I gave at the Open Rhein Ruhr in Oberhausen today. You could find it here:
I worked a bit further on my Python scripts to manage some admin tasks on the LibreOffice extensions and templates website. I had to search for an issue in one of the scripts, because I got not the expected data. I found the first issue and got a step further. I’ll work on this further during the next days.
I had a longer list of potential user that tried to create an account on the LibreOffice extensions and templates website but submitted no valid email address. I had to delete this accounts – currently manually -, because they blow up the database of the site without any value to the project (and potential user, because there is no way to activate them).
I worked during the last days on the Plone buildout of the LibreOffice extensions and templates website. I updated it – with some support of our service provider for fixing some nasty trace backs / error messages – to version 5.0.8. I rolled the new Plone minor version and some updates of our Plone addons out today. The site is running on Plone 5.0.8 yet. The run of the update took only a few minutes. Thus the site was only down for about five minutes or less.
Worked on a new WordPress site and bot some header errors. Tried to reset PW but it crashed. Seemed its difficult vor impossible to usw the database to set a new password with a md5-hash. Need more investigation ;-(
I gave a presentation about the creation of LibreOffice non-code extensions at the Open Rhein Ruhr in Oberhausen, a local open source event in Germany. The LibreOffice project attended the event with a booth too.
I added a first template for a non-code LibreOffice extension on Github. I’ll add some more during the next weeks. You’ll find them in a subfolder of my repository for the extensionbook:
I got the chance to work a bit further on my script / documentation about German foundation law and added some bits to the text, cleaned some typos etc. during my vacation. There are some missing sections and I hope to find some time to add Thema soon. But that depends on the daily workload after my vacation.
