This Confluence wiki site, maintained by DuraSpace prior to the recent merger with LYRASIS, will transition from the duraspace.org domain to the lyrasis.org domain on Saturday, Nov 16 beginning at approximately 7pm ET. A period of downtime of 2-3 hours is expected. After the transition, this wiki will be available at https://wiki.lyrasis.org/. All links to duraspace.org wiki pages will be redirected to the correct lyrasis.org URL. If you have questions prior to or following the transition please contact: wikihelp@lyrasis.org.

Agenda

  • (15 mins) Developer Stand Up - Developers give brief updates on their effort (or their team's effort).

    • Update/see "Current Work" section below based on your status. Please feel free to update prior to meeting.
    • Please highlight any new work (needing reviews/testing), any blockers (for you), and any discussion topics you may have.
  • (30 mins) General Discussion Topics
    1. Solr upgrade effort.  When to merge?  Once the initial Solr PR#2058 is merged, all developers will need to install/setup their development DSpace with an external Solr. 
    2. Concurrency in DSpace 7 (or 8).  What do we want to do when multiple editors are editing the same object?
      1. REST Contract notes on ETags: https://github.com/DSpace/Rest7Contract#etags--conditional-headers
      2. REST PATCH method also defines a "test" operation: https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6902#section-4.6 , however we do not yet support it in the REST API
    3. DSpace 7 Preview Release (per Steering discussions yesterday) New deadline end of March (Beta before OR2019)
      1. Perform preview release on a separate branch (not master) to allow for code that is still undergoing final review?  (proposed by Lieven & Pascal)
      2. Preview Release made available via Docker? (proposed by Pascal)
  • (15 mins) Planning for next week

Notes

  • Discussion Topics
    • Tim notes that Heather Greer Klein will soon be joining the effort as a part-time DSpace 7 Product Manager (8 hours per week, until DSpace 7 is released). She'll help with planning tasks, liaison with Marketing, etc.
      • She's on vacation today, but hopefully will be able to attend next week's meeting.
    • Preview Release Discussion
      • Steering discussed yesterday and decided to move forward with Preview Release. It's an important deadline, both for marketing as well as for ensuring we're "on schedule" for OR2019.
      • Preview Release new deadline is end of March
      • Beta Release in time for OR2019.
      • Perform preview release on a separate branch (not master) to allow for code that is still undergoing final review?
        • Art: seems ok, but we need to be more conservative than we were before OR2018. Nothing could go on this branch that isn't nearly complete.
        • Andrea: Agrees with Art around OR2018 issues.  Against this idea overall
        • This was discussed in Steering as a "backup plan". End goal is still to try and get everything on "master", but if we are running late, the decision becomes:  Do we push back Preview Release again (has risk that we miss Beta by OR2019), or do we cut the release with some "partially reviewed" features/code?
        • Consensus: We cannot decide this today. Likely this needs to go to an email vote.
        • Not high priority as this is a backup plan, but we do need to have a backup plan if Preview Release deadline of end of March starts to "slip"
    • Solr Upgrade Discussion
      • When do we merge?  The code passes all ITs and is in review stage. It will affect all developers, as they will need to install a separate Solr (Mark W notes that's not hard)
      • No user facing improvements though
      • Consensus: This is a "nice to have" for Preview Release, but not required.  It's third priority behind Submission/Workflow & Configurable Entities.  If it misses Preview (or cannot be tested sufficiently before then) we should merge this just after Preview
    • Concurrency in DSpace 7 (or 8).  What do we want to do when multiple editors are editing the same object?
