Description

This is about https://www.libreoffice.org/about-us/credits/

1. It's outdated, "1395 individuals contributed to OpenOffice.org... or LibreOffice until 2019-01-23". So please update.

2. It has First Commit, but it should also have a Last Commit date (so we know easily who is active).

3. It's a list but it'd better be a table with search and order functions (or at least just order on column name).

Hi Cloph,
would it be possible to add the instructions on how to do it to this ticket ?

#3

Updated by Christian Lohmaier over 1 year ago

  • Assignee changed from Christian Lohmaier to Xisco Fauli Tarazona
  • Target version changed from Q1/2020 to Q3/2020

I updated the page in the CMS, but to add the other features the stats-collection scripts would need to be tweaked.

reassigning to Xisco, since he asked for instructions (feel free to bump it back to me)

The credits are created via https://bitbucket.org/spaetz/gitanaly/ with small manual touchups (combining the separate templates contributors with the overall one) - and the result (html-page) is also used for the readlicense_oo/license/CREDITS.fodt file for the LO releases (just stripped of the website credits).

So if we were to add additional values like last commit date (do we want that in the first place?) the script would have to be updated to also output that info.
Also not sure about search, as your browser should allow to search anyway.

Also, it is already a table, not a list (but for layout reasons, not semantic, I guess that is what the OP hints at). To make it sortable again the output needs to be changed to reorder the output data in separate cells, and would alter the look quite a bit.

tldr: first part is decision making/whether we want it in a different layout, then part of it: do we also want to change it in LO's CREDITS.fodt - and last step would be to modify the output templates of gitanaly scripts to actually reflect those changes..
I personally don't want to do the decision part, but I can later do the tweaks to the script according to whatever conclusion you came to :-)

With two months passed since the last update, can we run another update of the page, have there been changes?

As for requests 2. and 3. I understand they are feasible, with some work, so I remain with it because that would give better usefulness to the table.

Another request 4.:
Probably list was generated by that-time e-mail addresses, but it should be corrected so that it's a sum for persons/names.

This is something we can consider as a feature request. I would not assign this currently, it's something that could also be handled by the community, based on the instructions in this ticket.

Another request 4.:

That sounds sensible to me. Re-assigning to Cloph, so he can give feedback on this one. I think we have an alias map for contributions - is it possible to make use of that here?

Had a talk with Cloph about this
Something we can investigate, but currently no commitment as to when
Releasing this to the infra pool for others to have a look and keep it on the todo
