|1||25 min||DSpace 7.0 Beta Schedule|
The Steering Committee voted to recommend the following a Beta Release schedule for DSpace 7.0 for approval consideration by Leadership, with request for guidance on the following issues:
The proposal below is based on the (early) results of a new estimation and priorization spreadsheet for DSpace 7 that was compiled with input from Atmire, 4Science and RCAAP. The prioritization of features used a scale from 1-5, where a feature with level 1 is required for the system to function and 5 is a feature that would be nice to have but isn't required to be part of DSpace 7.0.
If the first four betas are completed as predicted, then the 5th Beta will be added to Release 7.0. If the first four Betas are not on schedule, Beta 5 features will be added to Release 7.1.

Proposal: Form a small (3-4 person) task force to develop messaging and prospect list for Leaders to use to make contacts prior to end of year. Lyrasis can provide resources to assist with this effort.
This initiative is dependent on:

Reconsider proposal for transition home organization ex officio seat on Leadership to a voting seat.
"As a stakeholder in the success and sustainability of the DSpace community, we propose the organizational home seat on the Leadership Group transition to a voting seat. We propose the seat be available to a representative of the organizational home for as long as the relationship between community and organizational home is active."
Currently, Erin Tripp is serving as the organizational home representative on the Leadership Group, with Laurie Arp serving as interim.
