Leah Wasser (Earth Lab) Chris H (at Pangeo conference but added notes below) Luiz Irber Mike Trizna Max Joseph (Earth Lab) Ivan Ogasawara (@xmnlab) Quansight Tania Allard (Microsoft) David Nicholson
Will anyone be at pydata (New York)? @noamross had a few talk ideas but wanted to know if anyone from this team might be there. i will not. please let us know if you will be there!
offer noam resources to help build his talk and include pyopensci??
Mechanisms to ensure the review process happens in a timely manner: How do we handle timing of things when people are busy? setup a chain of command where the person who may be overwhelmed with things on their plate, suggests alternative folks to step in?
Maybe we can have something in writing for what happens when people don’t have time to complete a review.
If it’s the maintainer – maybe we don’t give them deadlines??
Tania – Joss guidelines / expectations – out of office bot??
the bot will provide a message if you are not in the office… editorial guide . –
let’s check ropensci’s timeline too?? https://devguide.ropensci.org/guide-for-authors.html
editor respond within 5 business days
reviewers – within 3 weeks
authors respond within 2 weeks
Tania – sometimes changes can take a long time! (8 months even) – note this was an exceptionally long time for a submission
luiz – sometimes the maintainer might need support / help to implement changes - some mentorship might be required
getting caught up on items such as review that are behind (we have a few that are behind and a few new packages to discuss!!)
Leah will followup with
Important: the clip module is moving to geopandas now!!! yay!
luiz will followup to get the review going - be it with two new reviewers or one or if people have time they can do the review.
one new submission - pandera (cosmicbboy)
max – max is happy to implement the first review
ivan – ivan will followup –
LUIZ: This is great!! because JOSS doesn’t accept API wrappers
David is happy to review when this is submitted!
funding for someone who can be a full time editor and community person
FUNDING pyopensci (leah) – working draft of 2-3 pager
[name=Chris H] I can help w/ this in the coming weeks. Do we have an ongoing conversation with Moore on this, or has it been a while since we’ve discussed with them? I’ve heard Moore may be stepping back from funding some of this stuff, so we may need to explore other sources [name=Leah w] Sloan just approached me to review something so i’d be happy to explore both moore and sloan?? Tracy said moore might support this BUT that was … gosh 6 months ago. maybe we can divide and conquer to decide??
ropensci unconference – could we find sponsors for this ?? (max) - microsoft, rstudio …
Tania – microsoft reactors – leah can email Tania – san fransi
Ivan is at quansight – they might be able to support an unconference as well…
Next steps * work on that overview document – * add discsusion of unconference event and outcomes and what suppport we would need, * what having 1-2 people full or part time would add to the effort.. * computational infrastructure, such as a GitHub pro level for organization, Zoom account etc. ??
wrap up items that were done / not done after the last meeting.
adding contributors to our docs like jupyter has (chris??)
[name=Chris H]I’m not sure where I put it, but I can’t find my suggestion now. I’m wondering whether folks are interested in just using the all contributors bot for this. It’s a github bot that you can use to add people’s images to the README (or the docs)
[name=Leah Wasser] i’ve used the bot! it’s really nice but my experience was it didn’t support ``.Rst` for docs. Chris – did you find a way around that?? i’m happy to consider using it as it works really well otherwise.
Does it work with markdown??
Looks like it does based on the commit history of their repo’s README.md file: https://github.com/all-contributors/all-contributors/blob/master/README.md
ISSUE HERE: https://github.com/pyOpenSci/pyopensci.github.io/issues/4
– luiz can look into this!
[name=Chris H] I’m around the Bay Area, so happy to stop by if I can be helpful for a session or something
Leah will followup on funding
Tracy and/or Neil – Moore
add to 2-3 pager text about the unconference event and what type of staff we’d like to have working on this
Luiz will look into the all-contrbutors bot to use in our repo to track who’s contributing.
Luiz will look for two new (potentially) reviewers for earthpy or will checkin with reviewers aout it…
We have two reviewers for pandera: max and ivan, leah will be the editor
Followup on erdapy (leah can ping filipe)
