NAV status meeting minutes 2009-05-05 ===================================== Present: Morten, Magnus, Jørgen, Vidar Absent: Thomas, Kristian
morten ------ * replacing psycopg1 with psycopg2 was a lot more work than first expected. lots of non-compliant DB-API usage, like: - dictfetch*() calls. - expectation of updateable dictionaries as result rows. - expectation of full pyformat template support in parameterized SQL queries. - django forces all strings returned by psycopg2 to be unicode objects, which was unexpected by lots of code.
Then there are the apparent bugs in the psycopg2 versions available on Debian Etch and Lenny.
* updated headers for webfront/subsystem and created an author list. Recommend everyone to go through code they're working on and do the same.
* added logical BRIDGE-MIB instance scanning directly to getBoksMacs, per. blueprint "query-cisco-vlans-getboksmacs". Some research into what would be needed to support Q-BRIDGE-MIB from getBoksMacs as well - may be a very small task.
magnus ------ * Working on refactor-auth blueprint. - broke login, fixed it, broke everything that uses sessions. - keep login, id and username in dictionary. - everything that accesses userdata as ForgetSQL object will fail atm.
jørgen ------ * Studying for exams, but current task is smsd-backoff blueprint.
etc --- * Assess whether we have enough new features to delay ipdevpoll to version 3.7 and release 3.6 on time.
* One-day SNMP/gDD/ipdevpoll tutorial for summer interns in June, need to find a date that suits everyone.
* We'll try daily 10 minute standing meetings each morning this summer to stay on top of things.
