Re: [Qgis-community-team] [QGIS-Developer] Visual Changelog: ready? Move to Website? Or Not?

Andreas Neumann-4

Hi,

Personally, I don't think that the visual changelog will be translated (I might be wrong though). Given that we struggle to get enough contributors for even the english master version chances are low, that they will be translates. I kind of promised to continue to work on it, but was too busy with other stuff so far. I will have more time soon, though.

Can we let it "as is" for now - let's say until the end of April (so people can still contribute to it) and then copy it to our website at the beginning of May o so? The nice thing about moving it to the website is that we have an archive and no dependency on external services.

Thanks,

Andreas

Should we 'freeze' current status of the visual changelog?

Or are there any items which should be a added/polished.

For earlier releases we always 'ported' the changelog to the website:
https://qgis.org/en/site/forusers/visualchangelog218/index.html
This made the changelog translatable in the website.

For 3.0 there is a temporary link to the changelog app now:
http://changelog.qgis.org/en/qgis/version/3.0.0/

But... do we still want to move it to the website?
Or is everybody happy with a link to the above changelog application?

I'm ok to move it to the website again, it's always some work because of
some styling issues... But that is ok.

But if nobody cares, I'll go and do something else, or sit in the sun ;-)

Richard Duivenvoorde

I would suggest that the validation workflow submits the new version to moderators, and that a copy of the old version stays published. A message to inform the author he needs some validation would be necessary too.

Régis, there is a ticket to remove the pending queue in projecta.

Andreas, about translations of changelog, the 2.18 version has been fully translated to French: https://qgis.org/fr/site/forusers/visualchangelog218/index.html
We never know ;-)

Etienne
 

Cheers!

Hi,

I agree with what Andreas proposes, ie announce clearly a date to the end of April, then make a copy to the website.

I still try to polish the changelog currently, some entries are hard to understand or deserve animated gif's and some entries can be factorized in one only for a shorter changelog. If the changelog is too long to be read, that means it is too long :)

I don’t think a long changelog is a limitation - in many cases this may be the only place where details of new features are available and enthusiastic users will happily pick through the details of the changelog to find things that are interesting for them.





Another glitch linked to the validation workflow. When someone submit an entry, the entry disappears until it is validated. So that leaded to duplicates, probably because some thought they had an issue with the website.

As Etienne mentioned we will get rid of this soon - hopefully in time for 3.2.

Thanks for all your contributions!

Regards

Tim
