I've put up a post in [site community profile] dw_dev with details of the contributor event on the 14th and 15th of May. For bonus points, account creation is now working for the wiki, so documentation efforts are welcomed and encouraged!

I've also updated the masterlist of introductory bugs, with one new issue for a total of 18 unclaimed issues. If you've been thinking of getting involved I would be delighted if you showed up (virtually or in person) to the contributor event. As ever, here's how to get started. :-)

Hello folk!

A reminder that I am running a Dreamwidth contributor weekend on the 14th of May, with spillover to the 15th. To get a sense of what goes on at these events, you can take a look at the November event summary and the February event summary.

If you need the physical address, please let me know and I'll PM it you along with instructions on how to get here by public transport. This is not the same address as the last time I hosted, so please do make sure you know where you're going!

If you'd like to attend remotely, find us on IRC or add me on Skype (ekabrett): I'm intending to have a spare machine running a video Skype call to interested folk from the corner of one of the rooms from about 11am on the Saturday (i.e. if you're attending in person and would rather not participate in the Skype call this will be avoidable).

More logistics! )

Access requests

I'm having a med reaction that's left me exhausted but jittery and sleepless, so I might as well do something productive with the time. It's been a very long time since I asked people for feature or bug requests for accessibility issues.

What do you wish, in a perfect world, dreamwidth would fix or implement? Note that I'm more clueless about cognitive accessibility, magnification, and visual processing, so I especially welcome clarifications on places we fail on those. No request too large or small, as long as it obeys the laws of thermodynamics.

As a reminder, the Dreamhack machine is going to be taken offline at some time between 1am EDT and 6am EDT on April 28th for up to an hour, as the datacenter will be doing maintenance work!

You can use the links in the above paragraph to check when this is in your local timezone.

I haven't done much lately.

What have you all been up to?

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.
