15minsQuick reminder of DSpace 7 release schedule/goals

Just a reminder of our goals:

  • Late January / Early February: 7.0 "Preview" release (not feature complete, but should include an early version of Configurable Entities) Preview release will be rescheduled.
  • By late April: 7.0 "Beta" release (first feature complete release)
  • By late May (prior to OR2019): 7.0 "Final" release

All dates are goals/estimates. For later dates to make sense, we need to meet the first goal.

    • Reviewers are listed in agenda above
    • More than one reviewer is welcome (and encouraged) on each PR. So anyone having additional time, please add your reviews to PRs listed above
  • Walkthrough of Paulo's Submission UI mockups
    • All agree the general approach is good
    • There are places we could likely improve the usability.
    • Need to think more about how to intermix textual authors & author items (entities) within the same submission UI
    • When creating an author item, may want to allow users to enter additional basic information about the author (e.g. institution, title)

    • Hopefully all PRs will be either merged or ready to be merged
