Finished the first draft of one of the presentations for September. JT will check and revise. 120 minutes.
I've finally diagnosed and fixed the build problem with the TEI Jenkins server. It was caused by a change in the way Jenkins handles the archiving of artifacts; it stopped making symlinks on the file system to point to the latest successful build products, and instead uses a text file that has to be parsed. We use those symlinks to build other jobs using the products of previous jobs, so I've added a build step that parses the text file and recreates the symlink, and that seems to be working. 120 minutes altogether, over a couple of weeks.
Worked through the proofing corrections for another couple of articles. 90 minutes.
Posting time spent copyediting one article, tweaking encoding, organizing proofing, and entering proofing corrections over the last few days. 240 minutes.
Made a huge number of edits on vol 26; I've now finished the editorial material and the first section (of five). I also had to rewrite some code to enable creation of a Dedication page in the form requested by the guest editor, and reorganize and debug a lot. There are conflicting edits from the two editors due to overlap in the final proofing, which is confusing and time-consuming. There is a LOT more to do here, unfortunately. 300 minutes.
Just tried sorting out a background backup solution using Deja Dup on Ubuntu. It turns out to be a bit less intuitive than I had hoped, but it looks like it's working now. This is how I set it up:
1) Deja Dup config screen has 5 sections: Overview; Folders to save; Folders to ignore; Storage location; and Scheduling. We can ignore Overview - it's self-explanatory.
2) Folders to Save can contain a number of absolute paths to local directories you want to back up.
3) Folders to ignore. Literally that.
4) The beef. This is where it's not intuitive. If you have remote storage that you want to access using sftp/ssh you need to use the following syntax:
Choose 'Network Server' from the list
In 'Network location' use 'ssh://machine.local' - this is for a remote machine on your local network.
In 'Folder', use the aliased form of the directory to store your stuff in. In the case of a Synology NAS DO NOT use the absolute path to your home directory (starts with var) use the aliased version (starts with homes)
5) Scheduling. As you see fit.
On late duty.
The proofing changes came back for vol 26, and it turns out they involve all sorts of unanticipated alterations to the layout, which will take some coding rewrites. I've made a start, but there's a lot still to do in addition to the regular fixes for typos etc. 240 hours.
Posting two hours spent fixing a problem resulting from svn conflicts and merges in MoEML. It had to be done before we went home because the only person who knew which bits of the file should be retained from each version was heading out on vacation and wouldn't be available.
