    1. Call for other agenda items (moderator)
    2. Branding of collections - where to store banner and logo images?  (Lynette Rayle) - Issue #1376
      1. Question is where to store images for branding collection – in Fedora as part of the object or outside Fedora as an application-level concern
      2. Lynette Rayle leans toward the former (in Fedora as part of the object) as either a related object or as a file on the collection object
      3. Adding a FileSet to the Collection is the most natural fit with the current model, though Collections don't currently have FileSets – that would have to be added.  
      4. Using related objects seems too heavy for this use case.  Even FileSet seems a bit heavy for these branding images but may be the easiest to code.
      5. No one spoke up in favor of making collection branding images a purely application concern (i.e., storing them somewhere other than Fedora).
      6. Consensus was to include these images as part of the Fedora object and do so in a Fileset.  Lynette Rayle will post about this to Samvera-Tech list and will also look at the tradeoffs between adding them as a FileSet to the Collection or as directly attached Files.  Work can begin on the consensus solution while awaiting further feedback from the Samvera-Tech list.
    3. original_file and related behavior (download, etc.) (Matt Critchlow
      1. Current default Hyrax behavior ('master' branch – v2.0.0.alpha) is to set the same access controls on all Files in a FileSet.
      2. UCSD has a use case where some files (e.g., source files) in a FileSet need different access controls than other files (e.g., derivatives) in the same FileSet.
      3. Duke and CSU have similar use cases.
      4. Michael J. Giarlo noted this use case – datastream/file level access control – comes up periodically.
      5. Matt Critchlow will write up an issue for Hyrax, propose a solution, and ask for community feedback.
    4. Hyrax bug fix version - 1.0.4 (Bess Sadler)
      1. Bess Sadler would like to release a bug fix version of Hyrax 1 in the next couple of weeks and asked folks to note any additional issues they would like to see addressed in such a release.
