  2. DCAT Review
    1. New feature review process
      1. Goal: primary goal of the DSpace Community Advisory Team (DCAT) is to help review and facilitate community-wide discussions about new feature requests in JIRA and to provide support to the DSpace developer/committer group in producing software releases.
      2. What it is:
        1. group representing the community which make assessments about new feature requests in JIRA - the relative value and urgency for the broader community 
        2. facilitate community wide discussions on the most useful and urgent new feature requests - the purpose of which is to validate DCAT assessment, flesh out req'mts, most importantly-->find stakeholder/developer resources
        3. possibly provide communication support (announcements, etc.) to developers/committers for software releases
        4. collaborate on other projects for the community - user group mtgs, networking, mailing list participation, e-forum, attend weekly developer/committer mtgs
      3. What it is not:
        1. a group that dictates work priorities for the developers/committers
        2. having discussions just to have discussions
      4. Process overview
