Review Samvera Labs for Promotion Candidates (or Archive Candidates)We have quite a few repositories in Samvera Labs.  Some of these may warrant promotion into Samvera; Others may be something to move to samvera-deprecated of the Dev Congress

Finish Checklist of Accessibility ImprovementsAn existing checklist of accessibility improvements is over halfway done on Arclight - would be nice to close it out.

What are we going to do about the cloud?!Some steps have been taken toward containerization and orchestration support for Samvera components, but we're missing a clear vision for what support would be useful, what containers and other resources we should publish and maintain, etc... Can we fulfill the vision of "Hydra in a Box" (a box is a type of container, after all)?

Facilitator Guide

  •  Propose or claim a topic in the Proposed Topics table above
  •  You will be asked to introduce your topic with a brief summary (minute or less) during the kick off meeting

Contributor Resources

Goal of this checklist is to enable leaders of specific issues to be able to collect resources for those interested in contributing; aiming to provide a shared knowledge base before beginning the work together.  While optional, if you're facilitating a topic we recommend you provide these resources to attendees ahead of time:

  •  Prepare zoom link or slack room link that will be used for contributors to gather
  •  Prepare short list of languages the work will be coded in
  •  Prepare list of any tutorials a contributor can complete to familiarize themselves with the work ahead
  •  If similar work has occurred in other repositories please include links to those repositories as well
