15minsQuick reminder of DSpace 7 release schedule/goals

Just a reminder of our goals. We'd want to see an Entities PR to "master" by late Dec / early January to stay on target.

  • Late January / Early February: 7.0 "Preview" release (not feature complete, but should include an early version of Configurable Entities)
  • 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.

230minsFeedback/updates on the Entities Pull Requests

Thanks for all the merged PRs just before the holidays!

Planning Entities (Configurable Item Types) for Preview Release

What is left to do prior to getting a PR to `master` branch created?

Update on Marketing plan for Entities in DSpace 7 Preview Release

Any other Preview Release updates to share

45minsWrap-up and Next Meeting Reminder

Any topics of concentration for our next meeting?

  • Next Meeting: Tues, January 22 at 16:00 UTC


All meetings will be recorded. Recordings and brief/summary notes will appear here after the meeting

  • Review of timelines. Timelines are getting tight, as ideally we'd have "master" branch changes merged a few weeks before Preview Release.
  • Feedback on PRs
    • Mostly looking good. More feedback needed on each
    • REST Contract needs updates per Andrea's comments:
    • Entity vs Item discussion.  We don't have an exact path forward yet.  Need feedback from Marketing Group on which term to use for DSpace. 
      • Table both DS-4082 / PR#2300 for after the Preview release.
  • Left to do Before Preview Release
    • REST API Contract needs finalized:
    • Mixing regular text metadata with Entities (coming soon - before next meeting!)
      • PR for REST API (should include REST Contract)
      • PR for Angular UI
    • Lieven: Sample data for prototype (Make available for download as well as a SQL - as it'll have actual Journals, etc)
    • Lieven: Google Doc consolidation (some in marketing and some in wiki or Google Doc)
      • Update existing Documentation to describe how to manage relations.  This documentation need not be highly detailed, but should more talk about the high level process of creating/updating/deleting relations & how newly configured relations can also be created/updated/deleted.
    • (If possible) Creating a Relation (between two objects) from the Angular UI. However, this requires Submission UI, so it's not likely to be in the Preview Release
  • Steering next meets on Weds, Jan 16.
    • Tim will pass along that we are running behind on Entities and are not likely to meet current Preview Release deadlines.
    • Will get feedback from Steering on how to adjust those Release deadlines
    • Also need feedback on whether Marketing Group has started up and how to work with them on Marketing Entities for Preview Release.
  • Next Meeting: Next Meeting: Tues, January 22 at 16:00 UTC
    • Concentration on "wrapping up" tasks left to do before Preview Release
