Agenda Notes

  1. Eat huge amounts of barbecue, washed down with delicious Live Oak Pilz.
  2. InstallFest? Possibly hosted at Fedora house, Monday or Tuesday evening?
    1. Possibly? Still just possibly?
    2. Possible to get a notice to the DLF schedule added?
  3. Installation/Configuration mini-screencast videos (starring Andrew Woods and his Dancing Teeth!)
  4. Maven archetypes: JAX-RS service (HTTP API extension), vanilla module, JMS listener...
  5. Andrew Woods promised that we'd come up with a migration plan for disseminators (fedora 3 service definition/deployment)
    1. A. Soroka believed him.
  6. Revisit RDF contract with fcrepo-kernel classes in light of recent Hydra RDF conference
  7. Hydra/F4 AuthN/Z future directions and opportunities
    1. How do we make it easier for Hydra to use F4 authZ?
  8. HTML outputs-- can we make them more available for contributions? (Hint: a template language more widely used than Apache Velocity.)
    1. Or, instead, can we make it more obvious that the HTML that comes with it not meant for extension?
  9. Review testing framework
    1. We have to mock, and we have to mock a lot of code, but the repetitiveness of our mocking code is starting to mock us.
    2. Let's stop mocking our own statics! (Says A. Soroka, the guy who introduced most of that awfulness, who has now learnt his lesson.)
  10. Code-Key signing
  11. Nail down F4 core capabilities
  12. Modularization/wiring approach
    1. Plug-in model
    2. Internal (core) service architecture


  1. Powerstrips
  2. Whiteboard
  3. Cables
  4. DLF livestream on the TV (dedicated laptop, video cabling to TV)
    1. Why TV? Why not just the laptop?
