Hyrax 2.1 Release Update (Lynette Rayle)

  • Asked Julie Rudder about testing
  • General impression: testing was going well
  • Van Tuyl will review blocking issues
    • 4 issues on release 2.1 considered blocking
    • Look to be fairly minor, could use a hand in tackling
  • On the blocking issues, there are only two which are unassigned
  • There are five with PR's close to done, some are already in review
  • Might be useful to aim for a release candidate soon (end of this week or early next week)
  • Rayle
    • Not much to offer on the migration process
    • Release notes for the first steps are very accurate
    • Now, going through process of evaluating Cornell's customization
      • Changed the home page masthead
      • Number of other configuration-based changes for the home page
    • Will report back after finishing this process
    • Bess Sadler also had an App which she wanted to test migrating
    • Also, ideally test a migration using Nurax
      • Although, this has been kept extremely up-to-date
  • Van Tuyl
    • Will enquire at Oregon State in order to determine if a migration can also be tested

ACL's in Fedora 5.0

  • Colvard is the hydra-head Product Owner
  • E-mail sent to the Samvera Tech list
  • Fedora 4.x will create WebACLs where authorization is a child (directly contained) within a parent ACL node
  • In Fedora 5, using hash URIs within a single ACL node
    • Changes things quite a bit, significant migration in the future needed

Code Stability Working Group (Jennifer Lindner)

  • Working Group which met for one month, produced a document
  • Shared and retrieved feedback for the Document deliverable
  • Following any further requests for changes or other feedback, looking to finalize the Document and close the WG

Hyrax Technical Lead Transition

  • Mike Giarlo is stepping away from Lead Technical role for Hyrax
  • Will still be actively contributing...but not enough time to lead
  • Tom Johnson of DCE shall be stepping into this role
  • Steve Van Tuyl
    • E-mail thread is out on samvera-tech

Samvera Documentation Work Session (Andrew Myers)

  • Announced last week, scheduled a session to work through tickets
  • Doodle Poll used to schedule for 02:30PM EDT for this Friday (04/13/18)
    • Mostly focused upon improving
  • Approximately a 2 hour meeting
