    • Update/see "Current Work" section below based on your status. Please feel free to update prior to meeting.
    • Please highlight any new work (needing reviews/testing), any blockers (for you), and any discussion topics you may have.
  • (30 mins) General Discussion Topics
    1. Solr upgrade effort.  When to merge?  Once the initial Solr PR#2265 is merged, all developers will need to install/setup their development DSpace with an external Solr. 
    2. Concurrency in DSpace 7 (or 8).  What do we want to do when multiple editors are editing the same object?
      1. REST Contract notes on ETags:
      2. REST PATCH method also defines a "test" operation: , however we do not yet support it in the REST API
    3. DSpace 7 Preview Release (per Steering discussions yesterday) New deadline end of March (Beta before OR2019)
      1. Perform preview release on a separate branch (not master) to allow for code that is still undergoing final review?  (proposed by Lieven & Pascal)
      2. Preview Release made available via Docker? (proposed by Pascal)
  • (15 mins) Planning for next week
