I fixed some internationalization issues within the Plone addons I used to run the LibreOffice extensions and templates website. I added also a function that searches for the latest unstable release of a project. If there is such unstable release it will be shown to the user of the website. I added a new slot to project view for this. The updated code is available in the github repository of The Documenta Foundation yet. It will soon be released and incorporated in Plone instance of the LibreOffice extensions and templates website.
It took some time to remove a lot of accounts from the LibreOffice extensions and templates website that are not used for contributions to the site and the LibreOffice eco-system. I finished this work during already.
It always possible and easy to create a new account on the site, if a new user / community member need one to contribute a LibreOffice extension or template project / release.
I created already some scripts to work on the user database of the LibreOffice extensions and templates website. I got some different list of the users (e.g. contributing and not contributing users). I monitored this different groups of users for a longer time now. Today I used another script that I already created and began to remove a list of users with no contribution to the site.
I worked on a small update of the Plone add-ons that I created to run the new LibreOffice extensions and templates website. The source code of this update went to the github repository of the Document Foundation and I published a new release of the Plone add-ons on the cheeseshop.
I updated the LibreOffice extensions and templates website with the new code of the add-ons via buildout today.
I’m working on another script for the administration of the LibreOffice extensions site. I’m looking for the value that has been set for the LibreOffice version compatibility. The values are all stored in the portal_catalog of the site (I added an index for this already). I run this script for the latest stable version of LibreOffice: 5.4. The query results in a number of only 86 extension and template releases with an explicit set compatibility for LibreOffice 5.4. We need to improve this list by running tests for all other extension and template releases against LibreOffice 5.4 and also (for all releases) against the upcomming LibreOffice 6.0. I’ll publish a list of the test candidates soon and am looking for volunteers running the tests.
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 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.
