Developers Meeting on Weds, October 23, 2013

Agenda

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. DSpace 4.0 Status. We've done the merging of PRs. Are there any we need to touch back on?  Merge status for those which are outstanding?  Still on track for Release Candidate 1 release (Thu, Oct 31)?
    1. DSpace 4.0 Tasks
    2. I updated the New features section of Release Notes. Please, check your contributions, add descriptions, credits, images etc. --Ivan
    3. TODO: Send an announcement (to all lists) of the upcoming 4.0 features & upcoming testathon. Help to generate some excitement!
  2. Search Interfaces (possibly standardizing on Discovery as the interface, with multiple providers)
    1. In DSpace 4.0, Discovery is enabled by default
    2. What do we want to do about plain-Lucene support?
      1. Option 1: Deprecate it in 4.0, and remove entirely in 5.0
      2. Option 2: Rewrite it so that it can be another provider behind Discovery (alongside Solr and possibly ES)
    3. For 5.0, we could also tentatively plan to release a Discovery on Elastic Search option

Additional Ongoing Topics

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