(translation tool should be translatewiki.net rather than transifex)

It’s Easier To Contribute to OSM’s Website Now about 2 months ago

In fact, Michal introduced a few new text labels in English. As always, those labels need to be translated to different languages in a separate step, which happens in an external application “transifex”. This might take a bit, depending on how fast translators complete their work on new text labels. As long as the translated texts are not yet available, you will see the English text instead.

French translation will probably be deployed shortly: https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/commit/1fd5d7f4fece70dfae87ce27644ad31cf972e688#diff-2c5ab6165f7efe573a84107e0e51102ad47cefb0c65629759d7458eee14326e7

The use of Free and Open Source Software in the OpenStreetMap Foundation 3 months ago

@1ec5 reported on Slack that Framadate doesn’t distinguish timezones, which is “pretty much a dealbreaker for anything in OSM that I would use it for”.

Regarding the code collaboration platform: almost all projects in the https://github.com/openstreetmap organisation depend on some sort of CI/CD pipeline (by the way, are those the projects which are in focus here?).

I’m not 100% sure what the options are available when using Gitea, but in any case I would consider CI/CD as an absolute must have feature for any kind of new platform to switch to.

OSMF based code hosting isn’t an entirely new idea: we used to have svn.openstreetmap.org (+ trac) for quite some time before some projects started moving to Github.

OSM’s OAuth will support OAuth2 anyway in the future, which should rule out many of today’s issues with OAuth 1.0a.

Cartography an introduction 4 months ago

Thanks for the update! I have to say it was somewhat unexpected to see this in an official newsletter ;)

Cartography an introduction 4 months ago

That’s a pretty weird URL for what you call a “free book”. As it stands, you’re most likely linking to some pirated copy here.

Missing National Parks 5 months ago

Apologies, i didn’t mean to throw a random piece of overpass gibberish over the fence… :)

https://dev.overpass-api.de/blog/loop_and_group.html#for has some more details about how the “for” statement works. In the example above this boils down to “for” calculating a number of groups based on the “name” tag, and then iterate over those groups.

For a sorted, duplicate free (aka “DISTINCT”) list of national park names for the UK you need to use something like https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/11In

Potlatch 3.0 beta 6 months ago

With today’s (19 November 2020) build, the Windows Task Manager “not responding” status issue seems to be gone. Also the linux wine environment crashes less frequently. I hope this is expected behaviour and not some coincidence?

I’m seeing some infrequent issues when P3 fails to show parts of the map. I couldn’t figure out, if the loading process itself isn’t working properly at times, or some parts of the map are simply not drawn. In any case, I don’t see any error message.

By the way, could you include some more detailed build information in the “Help” menu, maybe? That would be really helpful when reporting issues.

Potlatch 3.0 beta 6 months ago

I tested both versions in the same small townish area, that would still fit well in the 50k node limit for an export on z16. Although working on z16 feels a bit sluggish, it’s still feasible on P2. I experienced issues in particular when panning on z17+z18. Maybe there’s something special in my set up, that impacts P3. Let’s see what other users report back.

Potlatch 3.0 beta 6 months ago

I also tested Potlatch 3 on Windows 10 now. While the Flash based Potlatch 2 works quite smoothly on that machine, I’m seeing frequent lockups w/ Potlatch 3, in particular when panning the map. Windows Task Manager reports the app as “not responding”, and an impatient users gets prompted to kill the process. It usually takes about 5-30 seconds until it all clears all up again. Maybe there’s some processing going on that blocks the main thread, and Windows thinks the app is just unresponsive and dead.

Potlatch 3.0 beta 6 months ago

Oh well, this seems to be somewhat unstable and tends to crash when panning the map.

Potlatch 3.0 beta 6 months ago

those should be two separate commands after all:

cp Potlatch.air ~/.wine/drive_c/users/USER
wine ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Flash Player\AddIns\airappinstaller\airappinstaller.exe’ C:\users\USER\Potlatch.air
Potlatch 3.0 beta 6 months ago

At a first glance, it seems to be working using wine:

https://get2.adobe.com/air/ –> download windows version

wine AdobeAIRInstaller.exe

download & unzip potlatch

cp Potlatch.air ~/.wine/drive_c/users/USER wine ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Flash Player\AddIns\airappinstaller\airappinstaller.exe’ C:\users\USER\Potlatch.air

wine ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Potlatch\Potlatch.exe’

(replace USER by your login user name in Linux)

Documenting things that don’t work is a good way to save others lots of time (and frustration). In general, people trying this out should be aware that installing some really old software could potentially screw up their system (end of mandatory disclaimer).

Potlatch 3.0 beta 6 months ago

Tried a Docker image on Ubuntu 20.04 b/c I didn’t want to install some ancient libs on my box:

Dockerfile:

FROM nucleardreamer/air-docker
COPY Potlatch.air .
COPY Potlatch_CPU.air .

docker build . -t my_image

sudo docker run -ti –rm -e DISPLAY=$DISPLAY –net=host -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix my_image /bin/bash

Unfortunately, installing the app using the installer crashed with a segfault. I gave up at this point.

root@ubuntu:/air# air-install -silent -eulaAccepted  `pwd`/Potlatch_CPU.air 
The program 'air-install' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
  (Details: serial 196 error_code 2 request_code 130 minor_code 3)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
Application crashed with an unhandled SIGSEGV
