Backport Fix Updates: 

  • 2.2.2. release addressed some security/vulnerabilities.
  • Question from Tom Johnson: how do we want to manage security/vulnerability support for Hyrax releases? 
  • Proposal: support security for the last/previous major release (they would get the security fixes) 
  • Because of the number of releases currently, it would be good to start with 1.1.x and move forward from there (this will involve accepting new features)
  • The exception would be 2.0 to 2.x
  • Tom Johnson will write up the proposal and move forward 

Samvera Permissions Working Group: 

  • Reminder by LaRita Robinson about the webinar and purpose of the group

QA gem release broke master build on Hyrax: 

  • LaRita notified the group about this
  • Discussed removing the release where the QA gem broke; LaRita will discuss with persons responsible for release (Lynette Rayle )

LaRita will be notetaker and Phil Suda will moderate at next Tech Call
