    @jasmainak you have admin access to the mne-study-template board
    (repo rather)
    I can see the project board with a single card on the panels

    Ah finally figured it out ... it was the banner: "Learn Git and GitHub without any code!" that I had to close before I could see anything. I'm getting old ...

    @sappelhoff do we have an issue to track the generalized fetcher for openneuro? Can this be added to a project board? Even if you start it and it's not finished I think it can be a good starting point for someone to take over ...
    I created this: https://github.com/orgs/mne-tools/projects/1 and I'm going to close the other project boards. So everything is in one place rather than being fragmented across different project boards

    gosh, the digitization is killing me already. why is this so tough?

    anyhow, I summarized the problem here: https://github.com/bids-standard/pyedf/issues/7#issuecomment-523960790

    and the following answer by Robert is also informative IMO

    As I said in my email yesterday, the pain is real :) People developing the specification who don't work with software don't realize this
    but no pain, no gain ;)

    @sappelhoff there is a lot of discussion and I've read it but haven't managed to quite wrap the issues around my head. Is it the case that MNE populates the dig points differently for different file formats = different units + coord systems which complicates things when you write the _electrodes.tsv file? Is there something that fundamentally stops you from writing the _electrodes.tsv file in whatever coordinate system that MNE stores things in? Sorry I am not an expert in dig stuff, probably not much of a help :)

    @sappelhoff we can talk during the day quickly if you want. I can then update you with the vision about the dig refactoring with @massich

    +1, I am available between 14:00 and 17:00 if that works for you --> else, you can also ping me on the relevant PRs and I can comment/review :-)

    we jsut need stefan then ;)
    Alexandre Gramfort
    @agramfort
    ping @sappelhoff it's 2pm
    Mainak Jas
    @jasmainak
    Earlier is better for me too
    Stefan Appelhoff
    @sappelhoff
    ok
    which link?
    Alexandre Gramfort
    @agramfort
    ready stefan and mainak?
    Mainak Jas
    @jasmainak
    yes

    @sappelhoff let me know when to retweet your blog post about the gsoc? :) also I wonder what you thought of the experience and how it was different from work at the lab
    Stefan Appelhoff
    @sappelhoff

    let me know when to retweet your blog post about the gsoc?

    the final report? or the general GSoC blog? :-)

    Stefan Appelhoff
    @sappelhoff

    warning to alex: wall of text incoming :-P

    Regarding the experience: It was very valuable to "only code" for three months ... first of all it taught me that it does not mean to code all the time ... I did LOTS of stuff besides "pure coding" ... browsing documentations, reading guides, discussing with reviewers, getting help from you guys, thinking HOW to code

    that was nice and it was really gratifying when a given issue was finally solved and a PR merged :-)

    At the same time the experience was also quite challenging because I realized that the work "never stops" --> along the lines "okay, the PR is merged ... but now we need to fix A, B, C". That was demotivating me sometimes, but as you also said sometime in the GSoC I could just take a day off and work on another day.

    So in that way, GSoC was not so different from doing my PhD: Sometimes the work just flows and in one day you get done what you have been chewing on for the whole week before.

    Overall I think that I have picked up several new concrete coding things and also more broad perspectives on programming, so this was really great for me.

    What's also great is to see that many people benefit from the work. E.g., just right now Clemens Brunner is integrating pybv into MNE-LAB ... which is possible because I fixed it / brought up to date during the GSoC ... originally intended to build it into MNE-BIDS.

    so summarizing: valuable, challenging, gratifying, and great to see the impact :-)

    haha yes, we are a bit intense. And you had to sometimes use beta software upstream and fix or report bugs, so hope it gave you some perspective of how the open source world works. I think you achieved quite a bit, I wouldn't be surprised if there were more than 50 PRs merged :)
    Alexandre Gramfort
    @agramfort
    Yes it never ends. But it’s ok. The important thing is that you make progress and consolidate the field
    I have worked on problems for 13 years :)
    And I stop thinking that it will be solved this year

    I should have kept a count!

    And I stop thinking that it will be solved this year

    haha ... yeah
