Developers Meeting on Weds, October 19, 2011


  • Updates on 1.8.0 Release
    • Release is delayed one week, now scheduled for Oct 28.
      • Too many last minute bug fixes that we wanted to get in delayed 1.8.0 RC2 (released this morning), which in turn delayed 1.8.0 final.
    • We still need more eyes on Documentation (especially Upgrade & Installation docs)
    • Documentation that is still missing:
      • Various New Curation Tasks (Link Checker, MS Translator, etc) (Kim Shepherd?)

1.8.0 Bugs/Issues which are open (direct link)

PLEASE VOLUNTEER TO HELP WITH ANY UNASSIGNED ISSUES! We'd love to resolve all/most of these before 1.8.0 Final!

On the "back burner"

Possible Future Topics for "Special Topics" meetings

  • Improving our release processes so they rely less on Tim as backup support ("growing our team members"). Possible ideas include having a "Release Coordination Team" (2-3 committers), and potentially also having an "apprentice" role on that others can learn more about the entire process.
  • Discussions on ways to better Aggregate & "Clean" Solr Statistics (keeping everything makes the indexes way too large & hinders performance). See this dspace-tech email thread:


1.8.0 updates, future special topics meetings needed on Release Teams? & Aggregating Statistics
