    What was the output of these commands?

    Please do not use sudo.

    What is the output of git remote -v when in the openlibrary directory and when in the openlibrary/vendo/infogami directory?

    I really do not understand. I think you should rm -r openlibrary and start the installation process from scratch and avoid using sudo in that process.

    Ok
    Thanks a lot for your time and help @cclauss!

    @/all We had a breaking change go into our docker image, so you'll need to run docker-compose up --pull -d to get make css and make components to work (or maybe docker-compose build --pull web , I forget). But it should result in those commands being ~2x faster :) See internetarchive/openlibrary#4669 .

    You're right @cclauss! I have recently done the installation process from scratch, again and after speding some time on it, the project ran successfully.
    Thank you very much.

    @khabdrick -- our community is reflected by what you bring to it as well. We're not always able to respond right away. We try really hard to bring good intentions, good will, and positivity. We ask that those interested in contributing do the same :)
    Thanks @cclauss for offering great resources on getting started.

    https://openlibrary.org/volunteer has some great tips on exploring possibilities with Open Library.

    We have weekly calls on Tuesday 10am PT where members of the community may introduce themselves and describe the types of projects they'd like to contribute to.

    Here's one issue which could be a good one to start with for someone looking to understand more about how the system (frontend and backend) works:

    Hello, I'm trying to log in into Slack but it says that there's no account with my e-mail even though I know I'm using the right credentials. Could it be that some admin deleted my account?
    Also, Gitter is not used for librarians things, right?

    Hi @prakashaditya369 I tried responding to your email but it seems to have bounced. I will send you a PM on gitter. Thank you!

    Hello everyone! I am Akshita Singh, a 1st year ECE student. I have been benefitted from Internet Archive's Book Reader and now that I have a chance I want to contribute as a GSoC '21 applicant. But I am not able to find any community group like Slack, Gitter for discussing the BookReader project and get in touch with the Internet Archive's front-end team to discuss how can I contribute. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Hello everyone! I am Bhawna Patnaik, a third year undergrad B. Tech student from India. I want to participate in GSoC 2021 with Open Library or Bookreader. I have set them up locally with docker and worked on a good first issue. I am working on my proposal now. Any help would be greatly appreciated from the mentors! This is a great learning opportunity for me

    @cclauss
    @Priyaraj17 If you know how to improve the code then please do not wait for permission. Make a pull request because it will be easier for maintainers to evaluate the usefulness of an actual code change than a written description of a proposed code change. Automated tests will run on a pull request and this will not happen on an issue.

    When I'm trying to build openlibrary images using docker-compose build, I'm getting this error and build failed: failed commit on ref "layer-<hash_val>": "layer-<hash_value" failed size validation: 4852151 != 154691489. Service 'solr-updater' failed to build. have been trying for two days, but still had no luck. Can someone please give me a helpful hint to overcome this problem? Thanks.
    Mek
    @mekarpeles
    @pavinduLakshan I believe our images may have recently changed to use a newer version of solr, so we may need to do a complete/fresh rebuild.

    @Priyaraj17
    I have created a pull request, I have changed the var declarations to const / let in the codebase. This is the link: internetarchive/bookreader#691
    What should I do now?

    Given that there are 62 other open PRs on that repo, I would recommend that you look at the open issues to see if there are other things that you can work on.
