Scope & Objectives
The goal of this technical working group is to design and implement DSpace 7 Configurable Entities, per the statement from the DSpace Steering Group regarding the DSpace 7 data model and proposal #3 of the DSpace Entities Working Group summary document. (A high level overview of "Configurable Entities" was also presented during the DSpace 7 Update at OR2018.)
This working group is expected to complete and/or scope the effort within the DSpace 7 release timeline, which will require close coordination with the DSpace 7 Working Group.
This working group will
- (Before end of September) Assess the early prototype of Configurable Entities and its alignment with guidelines/needs.
- (Before end of October) Define an implementation roadmap for DSpace 7 Configurable Entities (based on the assessment of early prototype)
- (November to February) Implement Configurable Entities, per defined roadmap (by creating a Pull Request & documentation, to be reviewed by DSpace 7 Working Group and DSpace Committers)
- Draft a post-DSpace 7 roadmap for Configurable Entities (to be reviewed by Steering and Leadership)
Once the above deliverables have been completed, this working group will merge with the DSpace 7 Working Group. At that point, the Configurable Entities feature (and any further enhancements/improvements) will be managed by the combined DSpace 7 Working Group, where it will be stewarded into DSpace 7.
