Meeting notes

Guides and FAQs … discussion:  

Actions: Identify topics - list what you are already doing in DSpace and what you'd like to do

Create two mock-ups - per user and per topic and see what works better

Use case perspective - this is what you need to do and this is how..

DSpace 7 Documentation - try to use less jargon, 5-6 beta between now and June (when there will be a new release, see DSpace 7 Release Goals) - we could test and start documenting beta versions and use that as the basis for new documentation - create guidelines on how to document for beta testers, e.g. add guidelines on how to document on Try out DSpace 7??? Identify sections and specifics, etc. e.g. about Using DSpace 

Priority for DSpace 7: showcase what DSpace could do (for those who are thinking about using it), liaise with DSpace 7 Marketing Working Group
