Developers Meeting on Weds, February 13, 2013


Regular Items

  • "JIRA Backlog Hour" : Every Weds at 19:00UTC in #dspace IRC we will be working together to tackle our JIRA Backlog of "Received" tickets. This regular meeting will continue until we've been able to catch up on our backlog.

Discussion Topics

  1. Brief announcements:
    1. Tim will be on vacation next week (will be offline from Feb 20 - 25).  Developers are still encouraged to meet on Weds, Feb 20, but there's no formal agenda as of yet.
    2. On Weds, Feb 27, there will be a "DSpace Futures" followup discussion on REST APIs at 19:00 UTC (2pm EST).  We will not have a Developers Meeting that day.  Instead, I'd encourage you to join that call.
    3. Open Repositories submission deadline is Fri, Feb 22 (both for main conference and for DSpace User Group session) - Call for Proposals
      1. If you helped implement a new feature for DSpace 3.0, think about possibly submitting a talk on that new feature.  Or if you have implemented some cool customizations or have ideas for 4.0, submit a talk on those.
  2. Google Summer of Code 2013
    1. Brainstorming possible project ideas
    2. Anyone interested in possibly mentoring a student project? Any ideas of projects you'd be willing to mentor?
  3. REST Implementations - Choose one as our "base" and schedule for release.
    1. Hedtek's DSpace REST API:
    2. Wijiti's DSpace REST API: 
    3. NOTE: Will be a "DSpace Futures" call on REST API on Feb 27 at 2pm ET (19:00UTC).  Details coming in an email today or tomorrow.
  4. Other topics?  Talk more about 4.0 brainstorms perhaps?

Additional Ongoing Topics

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