  4. Update on Sufia/CurationConcerns Consolidation Plan (Michael J. Giarlo Justin Coyne)
    1. Hyrax codebase is tracking CC and Sufia for now.
      1. Note both codebases and commit history are in the Hyrax codebase.
    2. See, e.g.:
    3. Q: Are sufia and curation concerns living side-by-side or are they merged?
      1. A: we are past the side-by-side stage, and in the merging stage.
    4. A few institutions are talking about giving cycles to Hyrax
      1. This includes groups using both CC and Sufia now.
    5. Q: What are we doing about development for CC and Sufia now?
      1. It's manageable to do merges to catch-up at present; but question about long-term is less clear.
      2. There will be a CC 2.0 and Sufia 7.3.0. 
        1. Releases beyond this are in question.
      3. Call to Action: If you can justify committing to Hyrax, it would help to have more institutional backing.
    6. Q: Will there be a targeted jump-over time from Sufia → Hyrax?
