Work with Many Members (Allinson)

  • (Allinson arrived late to the call due to being forced to abandon their normal workspace)
  • Posted a message to the samvera-tech list describing Works with FileSets to attach
  • Asynchronous job attaches FileSets to Works, creates exponential time delays
  • Allinson introduced a work-around
  • Batch update for FileSets using Works (as opposed to saving and re-saving the Work for each FileSet, which introduced the delay)
  • Have others implemented a work-around?
  • Rayle:
    • Collections-to-Collections and Collections-to-Works relationships should have been reversed to address this
  • Cole:
    • Ordered Works-to-FileSets might be blocking this (the relationship wouldn't be reversed if they were ordered)
  • Rayle:
    • Princeton did quite a bit of exploration on this topic
    • Pages were Works and Books were Works
    • LaRita Robinson also addressed some similar issues with Collection membership relationships
  • Allinson:
    • Adding one Page to the end would require that all unmodified Works related to the parent Work be unnecessarily saved
    • Feels that we shouldn't delay until Valkyrie is integrated with Hyrax 3.0

Hyrax 2.1.0 Update (Rayle)

  • All blocking bugs have been addressed
  • Waiting for translations to be run in order to complete the release process
  • Mike Giarlo and Tom Johnson are planning to take care of translations (attending Samvera Camp as instructors)
  • Another round of QA testing will follow, then a full release will be provided

Solrizer Deprecation (Cole)

  • E-mailed tech. list
  • Justin Coyne is trying to remove Solrizer, but the active_fedora Pull Request has not been merged
  • No one has expressed interest in blocking this deprecation
  • (None present on the call objected)
  • Cole will leave Solrizer out there until the PR has been merged
  • Then will deprecate

Samvera Newcomers Call (Musiorski)

  • First meeting was held earlier today
    • Three members attended
  • Each meeting involves voting for a new topic each weekly meeting
    • At the moment, it shall be a free-form discussion

  • Will be exploring how to record sessions in the future
  • Invitation for new members and any questions
