QA Updates

  • Rayle:
  • Letting everyone know that CORS headers are being added (optionally) to Questioning Authority, disabled by default
  • Will post a link describing CORS headers, essentially allow adopters to use results in JavaScript
  • Ready to make a QA release, but wanted this in before the release
  • Security vulnerability on QA previously (this was announced previously), also there were just housekeeping items
  • CCMWG attended to some issues also, along with linked data processing
  • Expect the release by the end of the week

Hyrax Release

  • Colvard
    • EU decisions on privacy affected the Devise Trackable module
    • last_signed_in_at column was affected
      • field was no longer installed by Devise when Hyrax Apps are generated
    • Without this module, tests would fail
      • Coyne made a PR which addressed the failing tests
  • Johnson
    • Can work up release notes and provide support for this in a new release
    • Will provide release notes by the end of the day today, need to confirm with the Hyrax WG
      • Release will be addressed probably by late today or early tomorrow
    • Need to upgrade to 2.2.1 in order to avoid this
    • On a newly generated app on most versions of versions older than master, the problem will still be found
      • Problem lies with the dependency, so generated a new app will raise these problems
    • This should not be a problem for those who are already running Hyrax until they update Devise
      • 2.0 and 2.1 backport may also be explored
