Hi all,

A big thank you to everyone who came and helped out in the spectacular* 
StoryBoard bug squash! We look forward to the next. :) Here are some 
hilights from the last couple of weeks:


It's so beautiful, it requires all-caps. SotK has transformed the 
barebones events timeline into an elegant swan. Well, that's a weird 
mixed metaphor, but it *is* lovely! Furthermore, this magnificent 
gentleman has removed pagination so that comments are no longer lost on 
the second page of the results, and has made it possible to link 
comments directly. Extra thanks to ttx for fixing some of the css during 
the bugsquash! :) Here's an example:


There is a WIP patch in review for editing one's own comments, for 
anyone interested in trying it out and giving feedback:


* Email threading

The kindly pedroalvarez has worked some magic on the emails StoryBoard 
sends, so that they are threaded according to story. It should now be 
easier to see what an email refers to at a glance.

* API Docs example commands

anteaya has made it easier for people to interact with StoryBoard via 
the API with these examples. This should be good news for anyone who 
wants to use scripts with StoryBoard. You can see them here:


* Gerrit integration for storyboard-dev

Review-dev can now post comments on storyboard-dev (our test instance)! 
Thanks so much, zaro! You can see an example patch here: 

* Tags search upgraded

Tags search now suggests existing tags! This should making 
searching-by-tag much easier.

I hope to build on this to change task-statuses in the next couple of weeks.

It's been a pretty busy time... which is why I'm over a week late with 
this email \o/. Anyway, yes, thanks again to everyone who helped out. If 
you'd like to get involved in the project, we're always available in 
#storyboard on freenode; the project is a mix of python and angularjs. 
We have a worklist of stories that contain easy tasks here: 
https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/worklist/76 , so you can see if 
anything takes your interest, then it's best to ask in the channel for 
the specifics. :)

Hope to see you there! If I've missed anything, please let me know.

Best Wishes,


*I haven't personally written any interesting patches of late, so I am 
allowed to call it 'spectacular'. :)
