    2. Discuss what should be the next step regarding Notre Dame's permissions work? (LaRita Robinson)
      1. ND has done some prior work that has been discussed here and elsewhere on making changes/improvements to permissions in hyrax
      2. What should the next steps be?
        1. ND's proposal:
          1. Do something outside of Hyrax as a proof of concept
          2. Present to the community and then merge into hyrax if it all works out
      3. Question: can we get examples of what this would look like, how abilities would change, how we specify and query them? a few simple examples will help illustrate.
        1. ND has done some work to build out some simple examples but they haven't been put together for sharing yet - probably in the next few weeks
      4. Question: would meeting and discussing this at Connect be an opportunity to flesh out more details and discuss next steps
      5. Comment: Maybe putting together a high level or rough API might help us understand what ND is going for
      6. Sounds like ND will create an unconference session at Connect to discuss further
    3. Reminder: Hyrax/CC/Sufia usage survey closes on Friday:
      1. What is this?! for the past few years Michael J. Giarlo sends this survey out and they have been very useful over the past few years to help understand what the community wants from these solution bundles.
      2. please fill out the survey if you haven't
      3. Survey closes on Friday at the end of the day on the west coast
    4. Register for Connect ASAP - registrations are LOW so if you are waiting until the last minute to register (and book your room), now is the last minute. 
      1. Need Roomates? Bess Sadler set up a google doc to help folks find roomates and this is posted over on -tech and -community (question)

        3. one is gonna get picked up by someone
        4. seven unclaimed blockers for rc1 - can we get some time from folks to knock out a few of these
      5. Here are the blockers:
    6. Alternative dial in for this meeting to avoid choppy audio.
