Developers Meeting on Weds, February 8, 2012


Regular Items

  1. JIRA Catch-Up – starting with issue DS-943

Discussion Topics

  1. Quick Announcement: DuraSpace's Bamboo server may be offline tomorrow & Friday. We're working to migrate over to latest version.
  2. Tim's proposal for a (small?) 1.8.2 Release. Unfortunately discovered several annoying issues in AIP Backup & Restore that could use fixing:
  3. Thoughts on a "DSpace Developers Virtual Summit" Week? (potential weeks include Feb 20-24, Feb 27-Mar 2)
    • Summit would consist of a daily video/voice chat meeting (1-2 hrs likely, via Google+?) between developers/committers
    • Open format discussion, but seeded with a few larger/provocative questions
      • Example question: "How do we move the DSpace API forward to better support multiple UIs, potential new UI development, & avoid UI logic duplication?"
    • Tim would attend each day, but rest of folks would likely be rotating in/out based on their schedules (limit of 10 simultaneous attendees, based on Google+ limitations).
    • Each day we'd publicly post (to dspace-devel list) a summary of that day's discussions. This would allow others to provide comments/feedback & to encourage others to join in following days
    • At end of summit, if things went well, it may or may not be followed up by a "Virtual Hack-a-thon" (week or two) to rapidly prototype/build any new projects that were brainstormed.
  4. Google Summer of Code 2012 - Begin to think about possible GSoC DSpace Project Ideas. Also, think about whether you'd be willing to mentor a student project (of your choice, obviously).
  5. Other topics?

Additional Ongoing Topics

  1. Brainstorming Features/Changes for 3.0. Can we work towards development teams around any of these projects?
