This week, the core team continued our review of the soil creation systems and open-source Highest Good Food designs. We focused on the ongoing edits and reviews of the Food Rollout Infrastructure Doc. The primary aim of these edits was to refine the entries previously posted on the One Community website, particularly those related to the tasks and details of the initial group of three and the Up to 20 people segments. To enhance clarity and precision, we made necessary adjustments by replacing the previous soil creation systems range factor titles with “UP TO” designations for each group. See the pictures below that are related to this.

This week, Ashlesha focused on various design and content creation tasks. She started by crafting a Volunteer Announcement, which involved creating a bio image and an announcement image. Additionally, she developed web content related to the volunteer announcement. In preparation for future needs, she researched and curated a selection of nature-based background images and theme-based images. Ashlesha’s design skills were also put to use in developing Social Media and YouTube Preview/Intro Images for blog posts #727 through #733. Rihab’s contributions involved two key responsibilities. First, she dedicated her efforts to producing weekly progress update images, specifically for updates #660 to #664. Rihab meticulously worked on multiple drafts for each update, ensuring they met the required standards. Once the designs were finalized, she promptly published them on her Dropbox. Her second task was centered around volunteer announcements. She edited the bio pictures and announcement designs for fellow volunteers Olawunmi Ijisesan and Zijie Yu. After thorough review, these designs were incorporated into the webpage. The entire process was overseen and confirmed by the One Community team. Meanwhile, Yeasin accomplished the assigned task with proficiency and creativity. He successfully generated seven distinct designs that showcased his graphic design skills across various projects. These tasks encompassed both print and digital media, requiring expertise in both manual techniques and computer software to craft the designs. Yeasin’s ability to adapt to diverse design challenges was evident in the high-quality output he consistently delivered. The pictures below exemplify this work.

Skye’s summary, covering their work on the Highest Good Network software, was managed by Yiyun Tan (Software Engineer and Team Manager) and includes, Bailey Mejia (Software Engineer), Jerry Ren (Full Stack Developer), Luis Arevalo (Front End Developer), Mounica Dingari (Software Developer), Yao Wang (Software Engineer). This week’s summary was managed by Yiyun. Luis focused on enhancing the permission management tool’s functionality by implementing measures to prevent the creation of duplicate roles. To achieve this, he introduced a case-insensitive check to ensure that no duplicate roles, whether in lowercase or uppercase, could be submitted. Additionally, he integrated an error message system to notify users when attempting to create duplicate roles, accompanied by a toast notification for clear feedback. Subsequently, Luis submitted his code via a pull request (PR) for review, awaiting integration into the development branch. In parallel, he contributed to the team’s efficiency by diligently reviewing multiple PRs on the front-end branch, specifically PRs 1216, 1212, 1210, 1204, 1203, 1202, 1189, 1185, and 1183. His reviews encompassed comprehensive feedback, and most developers successfully addressed their tasks. Notably, PR 1183 required attention due to a 400-error code, which Luis promptly identified and requested correction. Moreover, PR 1210 resolved the issue of floating numbers in badge totals, while PR 1204 standardized the date format to MM DD YYYY across the entire application. Bailey focused on several tasks, key among them being rectifying badge bugs and addressing a badge duplication issue. The most crucial task assigned to him, however, was modifying the system to enable the ‘owner’ role to create other ‘owner’ roles. A significant problem had arisen because the ‘Admin’ role had the capacity to create ‘owner’ roles, thereby allowing users to make multiple permission changes. To resolve this, Bailey devised a condition that examines the user’s role; if the user is an ‘owner,’ they are permitted to create additional ‘owner’ roles, whereas ‘Admin’ users are now restricted from creating ‘owner’ roles. Subsequently, he rectified the date picker input, standardizing its size to match other inputs in the form. Mounica focused on PR#1181, aimed at restoring the functionality to make individuals active or inactive using a dot by their name. Mounica also conducted testing on PR#1224, which involved enhancing user management to display a full table with the addition of a scroll bar. Additionally, Mounica addressed ESLint issues in five files within the Badge component, specifically AssignBadge, AssignBadgePopup, Badge, BadgeDevelopment, and AssignTableRow. Jerry, a member of the Development Team, brainstormed ideas to address the recent issue of users maliciously altering user permissions on the HGN app. His proposed solutions received approval from Jae, prompting him to proceed with implementation. Jerry focused on developing a logging middleware within the backend code to record timestamps and user account details associated with alterations of permissions on the Permissions Management Page. He plans to continue working on this next week. Yao conducted testing on seven pull requests and addressed an issue related to missing screenshots with comments and PR numbers in Dropbox. Yao added screenshots to all the PRs tested and supplemented some of the PRs from the previous week with new screenshots. The PRs tested include numbers 1162, 1200, 1202, 1203, 1204, 1183, and 506. Notably, a critical problem was identified in PR 1183, where a 400 error occurred under the “Time Options” tab below the task section, leading to an “unexpected error” when clicking the “72+” tab in PR 1183. Yiyun’s focus centered on addressing the hotfix of the “bluesquare cannot be automatically issued” problem. She identified the root cause and raised a PR to fix it. Additionally, she assisted the team with lint-fix tasks and provided general support to the team’s ongoing efforts. See the collage below for their work.
