Hello Community,

I am sending my report for Week 7 (July 13-July 19). The report can also be 
found in the project wiki: https://trac.osgeo.org/…dow

1) What did I complete this week?

I finalized the PR Add multiple GRASS databases (see ​https://github.com/
OSGeo/grass/pull/761(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/761), ​https://
). I also made several smaller PRs related to several issues. As we would 
like distinguish different layers according to lock and ownership in future,
it was necessary to distinguish the label and name of nodes (see ​https://
github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/783(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/783), ​
(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/issues/780)). I also changed the order of 
Layer Manager tabs and a label "Layers" to "Display" (see ​https://github.
com/OSGeo/grass/pull/802(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/802), ​https://
). Simultaneously, I am working on bigger PRs related to new actions in Data
Catalog. The first one adds Create New Location and Download Location 
actions to the database node in Data tab (see ​https://github.com/OSGeo/
grass/pull/790(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/790), ​https://github.
com/OSGeo/grass/issues/747(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/issues/747)). The 
second one allows the Delete action on multiple selected mapsets (see ​
(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/pull/795), ​https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/

2) What am I going to achieve next week?

As the paradigm has quite changed after the community video call on July 15 
(startup screen will be probably removed), I will go ahead and add more 
functions and actions to Data Catalog which is now becoming the center point
of the whole management in GRASS. First I am gonna focus on Adding new icons
to the data catalog for several actions whose list is still broadening. This
is related to the Issue ​https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/issues/800
(https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/issues/800). There are also other issues 
related to the Data Catalog I am gonna address: 

   * Add functionality to load only data from the current mapset in the Data
   tree (see ​https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/issues/749
   * Startup screen: Distinguish mapsets by ownership and lock (see ​
   * Check for gislock and other issues when deleting/renaming/editing 
   mapset and location in catalog (​https://github.com/OSGeo/grass/issues/

3) Is there any blocking issue?
No, it is not.
