TCCD: work on ticket

Met with DH, and did the first half of ticket 37: I now have XSLT that can semi-reliably harvest user info from HOCR files and create respStmt elements in the TEI. I still have to figure out how to output that information in the HTML.

DVPP: Attacked low-hanging error fruit

The diagnostics is now showing lots of errors in filenames and links, so I've handled the bulk of them in a semi-automated way because they were amenable to that. We're now down to 64 bad filenames and 4 bad links.

DVPP: Database updates done

I've made the updates to the database, by rsyncing most of the dev version over the live codebase (keeping a backup).

The changes are:

  1. There's now a "First Line" field in the Poems table, where you can add the first line of a poem which otherwise would be indistinguishable from others with similar titles ("Song", "Sonnet" etc.).
  2. The "Related poems" field now uses a combination of the Title, the First line (if there is one), and the id of a poem to give you something which (I hope) is findable and unique for each poem. When poems start with punctuation (quotes or whatever) they'll sort to the beginning, so you usually need to scroll past the quoted titles to get to the regular ones.
  3. There is now a publicly-accessible read-only view of the database here. I haven't linked this from anywhere or publicized it yet; I think the plan is to hide the notes field in this view, which will take a bit of work.

One note: there's an additional field in the poems table which just amalgamates all the text values of the other major fields, to make for a simple search field, which was used for the WordPress plugin. Since that's no longer working, and it was going to be difficult to combine the trigger I needed for the new First line field with the original trigger that also ran on update on that table, I've removed the original trigger. That means the plugin will no longer work, so if we need it to do so at some point, we'll need to figure out how to combine those two triggers in a single operation.

DVPP: did first set of diagnostics

We now have diagnostics giving stats, and providing tests for ill-formed image filenames on the filesystem, and database records that point at images that aren't there. This is a good start, and there's plenty for people to get their teeth into.

Keats: KB now working with SVN and Oxygen

KB came in to get SVN and Oxygen installed, and is now working on edits. Initial setup and basic process documentation is good, but I also need to do more in the way of documenting markup practice as we move to more complicated edits.

Keats: pilot version of poem page insertion

Inserted one of the poem page images as requested by KB; this works as expected, so I can go ahead with the same model for the rest of them. Did some other fixes from the list of TODOS while I was in there.

DVPP: Adaptive DB new version rollout to dev

The project needs some of the improvements to the adaptive db added after this project started, such as the read-only interface, so I've copied the current data over into the dev db, checked out the latest trunk from svn, and hacked away till everything worked. The process found some oddities in the adaptive db code, which I've copied back to the repo. I'm now in a position to add and alter some fields that need to be changed, doing that only in dev first.

DVPP: imported original marked-up poems

61 of the original 2014 sample of 100 poems were marked up in the original repo, albeit a bit shakily; I've converted those, added them to the new repo, and fixed all the validation problems.
