      2b.  Technical Debt : Can someone link the technical debt blog post (Princeton and ???) on here?

             What is technical debt?  performance problems, upgrade paths, incompatible development archs,...

             The Samvera Community discussed some options at LDCX.  One idea is the idea of hiring a community coordinator.

             Jennifer Lindner is going to compile institutional feedback through the various list and start the conversation there.

     2c.  Hyrax 1.0.3:  Drew is looking to release Hyrax 1.0.3 to get needed encoding back port and Bess's documentation in. 

            If there are any other fixes or features wanted, get your PRs in.

     2d.  Collection Extensions Sprint:  The sprint will begin on August 7th.  

            Still looking for developers and institutions with indexing and nesting expertise to sign up.  

            There will also be an in person sprint on August 21 - 25 in Michigan

    2e.  Documentation Working Group:  Checkout the Knowledgebase.  Great work.  

           Hosted on, so put in issues and pull requests.
