@hanleybrand
yup, you're good

@PsukheDelos
woo hoo!
Peter Hanley
@hanleybrand
oh, one more thing

@PsukheDelos
yup!

should I leave it blank, enter a specific name, or just enter my preference?
Peter Hanley
@hanleybrand
sorry - had some connection issues
I use vagrant/vagrant, but it doesn't matter
Matt Plummer
@matty-plumski
looks like some great bug hunting guys - thanks for all you're help Peter!
Peter Hanley
@hanleybrand
sure thing :smile:

to answer the question of versions, I have Virtual Box 4.3.20 and vagrant 1.7.4 (the normal download version)
Psukhe Delos
@PsukheDelos
oh fantastic! yeah that's good, wanted to be in sync with your environment. I'm on 4.3.30, but I'm sure that's safe
and to reiterate what matt said, thank you so much!
Peter Hanley
@hanleybrand
cool, np
I'm going to push the changes to the files that we found
Psukhe Delos
@PsukheDelos
ah cool!
well, what I'll do is I'm going to try and install again from scratch on a fresh server once those changes come through
that way I can work through the process again, and see where human intervention is needed
so I can write up some documentation from our end of how to troubleshoot / fresh install mdid quickly
Peter Hanley
@hanleybrand
I think I'm going to try to stat from scratch as well, see how it goes this time
I've been thinking there seems to be an element of uncertainty in the vagrant up process which suggests that there's a problem with the script; I'm thinking vagrant wouldn't be as popular as it is (i.e. if it was so unreliable)
Peter Hanley
@hanleybrand
well, it's still not working at first vagrant up bleh. I'm also getting the Access denied for user 'rooibos'@'localhost' (using password: YES) error when I do the vagrant ssh -c "~/runserver" command
Psukhe Delos
@PsukheDelos
yeah! vagrant is pretty cool and only something I've had to use more recently. from our discussion, it all condensed down to:
  1. vagrant up
  2. mysql --user=root --password=rooibos -v < /vagrant/.vagrant_provision/create_database.sql
  3. ./manage.py migrate rooibos --noinput ./manage.py migrate --noinput ./manage.py createcachetable cache ./manage.py collectstatic --noinput
  4. vagrant ssh -c "~/runserver"
oh and ./manage.py createsuperuser to create your login details
Psukhe Delos
@PsukheDelos
where we're at is we'll use vagrant for being able to quickly establish dev environments for future teams. our next task is to convert the vagrant file to an Ansible script that we could use to easily deploy mdid. is that something that you would find useful if we can get up and running?
and/or do you think the community might find useful?
Psukhe Delos
@PsukheDelos
another part of our team is working on search functionality (there were a few custom searches that had been created for previous versions of mdid to search local sources such as DigitalNZ). and we're also working towards embedding the metadata into the images when they are exported.
Psukhe Delos
@PsukheDelos

our workflow has been a bit odd, so apologies for previous delays in communication. we are technically only allowed to work on this one full day a week as part of our course (that's Tuesday NZ). however, I don't feel its unfair for us to bend the rules a little bit when it comes to working with you outside of that time. oh! also! there is a summer scholarship being offered at the university looking for:

"VicView: Developing an open source image management system
Computer Science student sought to develop, customise and link two open source digital asset management applications for use across Victoria University."

The other digital asset management system is Collective Access: http://collectiveaccess.org/ From my understanding, its value is in cataloguing art easily (i.e. like for sculptures, 3d models, etc.). Essentially, we're setting that up independently, and then searching it like you would any other mdid source.

Anyway, Bleh! Just thought I'd bleet on for a moment about where we're at / what we're up to! Hope you're having a lovely day!

Peter Hanley
@hanleybrand
That's awesome - on the ansible script, it coud be useful, especially if it ended up being more reliable than the shell script
Matt Plummer
@matty-plumski
Yeah, Glen's right about Collective Access - we're hoping to use it to catalogue our university art collection so need fields like loan requests, insurance etc. We've also developed a schema based on the Getty's pilot CONA vocabulary: http://www.getty.edu/research/tools/vocabularies/cona/

@hanleybrand
Jeez, is it really a month since I've done anything? [slacker]
I just saw that gitter added this "embed in website" feature: https://sidecar.gitter.im
pretty cool
Matt Plummer
@matty-plumski
thanks for the heads up Peter. The comp sci student project has finished up, they made same good progress with their 1.8 MDID branch + documentation, and got some bonus points by using the MDID media viewer to present their final project overview. Did you see Mary McVein's comment on the MDID listserv? Seems like security concerns may become more of a factor, so getting the 1.8 branch production ready could be a good goal for the development community. We have a summer student working on aspects of the system, but they'll be focussing more on Collective Access (see above) than MDID. We'll look to get other students to work on MDID next year.
Would be great to keep our conversation going though - particularly if there's anything we can pass on from our branch or help with, and also plans for advancing 1.8 version

@knabar
@hanleybrand @matty-plumski Would you be up for another video chat to see where we all are?
Peter Hanley
@hanleybrand
For sure - is Thursday too early?
Matt Plummer

We'd definitely be keen for this - it'd be useful to try and get some of the software engineering students involved too if possible, although they're in the middle of the exam period. I suggest we tee up a time that works for the three of us, and then I'll see if anyone from the project is free to join? Fri morning (New Zealand time - so your Thurs evening) is looking clear for me at this stage.
Andreas Knab
@knabar
I'm having trouble with my home DSL connection right now, but assuming it's fixed by tomorrow evening, Thursday should work
Matt Plummer
@matty-plumski
Sounds good, is it also worth trying to get someone from JMU along too - perhaps Leighton?
Peter Hanley
@hanleybrand
Sadly, leighton died unexpectedly in the last few weeks -- I don't know anything other than that, but maybe Jon can hop on? I'm not sure how they're feeling at JMU tbh.
Matt Plummer
@matty-plumski
Sorry to hear that. I've added you both as users to our dev 1.8 site if you want to poke around - many things working, but many things not. I haven't had the chance to go through and do a thorough issues track, but plan to do so. The site is at: http://52.64.176.159:8000, I've made your username and password your git username.
