  4. Spin up Documentation WG for HAWG
    1. We feel it is important to document for analytics what they are seeing and additional high level best practices for using analytics
      1. What are you getting when you get a page view or download from google analytics
    2. Need a person to coordinate the working group to lead a group of people to create a draft of the documentation
    3. Asked Nik if he wants to be the coordinator and he agreed to be the coordinator

Next Steps:

We need to identify the candidates for tech lead and coordinator.  Day to day development set during the effort.

  • Should the tech lead be someone already involved in former Samvera sprints?  Not necessarily, but the person needs to be fairly familiar with the stack and the PR process.
  • Should both of the roles be from the same institution?  This could work well, but it is not necessary. 
  • Steve will put a description of both roles together and send out to the group
  • Ellen Ramsey has a person that could be a good tech lead, but that person needs to be asked.
  • Jon will go back to the Fulcrum/ Deep Blue Data Michigan team about a possible person.
  • Carolyn mentioned that there was not much time for PSU
  • Gabriela will talk with the developers
  • Steve does not have anyone locally

We want these people identified by mid to late December.

Nik will coordinate the scope of the documentation work is.  The QA work that may come out of the documentation will need to be coordinated with the tech coordinator.

Everyone should look at Gary's wireframes for next week's call.
