Perhaps seeing these again will spark a dump or two (
http://bugs.foocorp.net/issues/262, and http://bugs.foocorp.net/issues/289):
- (WSGI) Application structure
- Media submission process
- Media conversion/processing process
- Multiple media type handling for display/submission/processing and what
writing extensions for this will look like
- Maybe a bit about plugins vision but that's not currently critical
- re:f289 - 'I'll write up a braindump of how all this stuff works to the
mailing list this week.'
I also wonder about celery, which jobs it performs, and why it's such an
important component of MediaGoblin's design.
