PyOpenSci Meeting Notes - 31 Jan 2019#
Project Scope - in the review processing & guidelines#
Current Scope List#
Data retrieval: Packages for accessing and downloading data from online sources. Includes wrappers for accessing APIs.
Data extraction: Packages that aid in retrieving data from unstructured sources such as text, images and PDFs.
Data munging: Tools for processing data from scientific data formats.
Data deposition: Tools for depositing data in scientific research repositories.
Data visualization: Packages for visualizing and analyzing data.
Reproducibility: Tools to scientists ensure that their research is reproducible. E.g. version control, automated testing, or citation tools.
Geospatial: Packages focused on the retrieval, manipulation, and analysis of spatial data.
Education: Packages to aid with instruction.
Statistics/Machine Learning: Packages implementing established ML or statistics methods. Note that this does not include new methods, only implemntations of previously published algorithms/techniques.
Max: let’s follow what ropensci is doing; ML may be hard to test (e.g. stochastic algorithms)
Chris: ML is more complex, may be hard to get reviewers;
rOpenSci doesn’t include data viz – do we want to include that or consider that??
Chris will ask Karthik about not including data viz in rOpenSci
Geoplot – as an example… https://github.com/ResidentMario/geoplot
Dev guide feedback#
Comment on the 2 pull req?
Comments on scope and package guide from the group would be helpful
COC – exists but should be more highlighted in the dev-guide…
BOF – SciPy proposed session - summer#
Submission form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScNO_scayKeQapQxZRNeFOqql35HY9nRc6gCpxEk8VkZBAkLQ/viewform
asks for Moderator, Title, Abstract, Format = Open Discussion
March 18, 2019: BoF call for submissions opens
Jun 18, 2019: BoF submissions due
Jul 10-12, 2019: SciPy 2019 General Conference
Can we spend some time thinking about how people can engage with us…
Mozilla concept of Mountain of Engagement
Can we get the BOF text from last year from Paige???
Leah reports successful/positive conversation; will follow up more
Presubmission template added!#
reviewer database??? rOpenSci has one to keep track of reviewers, their last review, etc (uses https://airtable.com/)
analog to rOpenSci software review repo (there is also an onboarding repo once the package is accepted)
https://github.com/pyOpenSci/pyApiToolkit/issues/1 – USER: https://github.com/simkimsia
Should treat this first submission as a partnership to help the pyOpenSci submission workflow; ask the user for feedback; help us develop a proof of concept
