  • David was at Samvera connect last week, did workshop with 5.0 version from a few weeks ago
    • went through new memento API
    • increasing interest in OCFL
  • Fedora camp in Berlin in the next few months
    • 8 new Fedora memberships, primarily around Europe.
  • David will be giving Semantic web workshop soon, including info about CLAW
    • There is interest in decentralized web in academic contexts, although it is focused more specifically on libraries
    • Well attended by VEVO people
  • jcreel mentions Texas A&M Walking Fedora 4 into spotlight using IIIF
    • They are using api-x extensions from amherst, so they may be able to test with fcrepo5 in the not too distant future
      • Generate PCDM from their graph
    • Wondering about the best approach doing releases/versioning of API-X extensions
      • May make sense to put some into fcrepo-extensions repo
      • Having a registry of API-X solutions would be helpful too.

Road to Release

  • Authn/Authz work for CTS to allow for pluggable authentication, with default authentication
    • Aaron Coburn suggested that requiring users to write an authenticator in java was a high bar
      • Will add option for specifying header for admin and permissionless users.
    • Added "root-controller-user-webid" and "permissionless-user-webid", plus passwords
      • if provided without a provided authenticator, get basic auth
      • have to add user agent base URI in front of the usernames
  • Documentation of server managed triples: What are the Server Managed Triples
  • Older ticket related to using direct/indirect containers to add triples regardless of ACLS
  • A number of CTS tickets/issues remaining
  • Documentation is fairly close to complete, may be sufficient for the release candidate
  • Should we do a full set of testing prior to release or after?
    • we don't have the vagrant project updated yet, so we wouldn't be able to run some components of the release testing yet
    • So testing would involve downloading and testing, and possibly with the one click
  • Early November, Peter will be looking at their camel infrastructure and how they will run camel toolbox with 5.0
    • Will involve putting 5.0 into their local web application
  • May not be until post release (January) before some of the environment tools start getting updated, such as camel toolbox, import-export, etc.
  • Attempt to make decision about release candidate next week.
  • Jetty 9.4 would help us be able to use the official maven-jetty-console release rather than our fork in fcrepo4-labs
    • maven-jetty-console released an update from our PR, so they are on a sufficiently up to date to deal with Java 9 files
    • check in to see if anyone has time to work on it.
    • if not, then may move the project into fcrepo4 instead of labs
  • No labels
