  1. Notetaker?
  2. Review last week's action items
    1. Review tickets for putting diagrams to use cases.
    2. Review tickets for actionable steps toward fulfilling all other use cases:
  3. Github team for the wg. Is that ok with everyone?
  4. Create a dev plan for: Allow storing a binary file containing technical metadata about a pcdm:File.
  5. Create a dev plan for: Allow customizing the role of a File within a FileSet.


  • Reviewing action items
  • Github team
    • Reviewed team and added missing members
    • Any objections to this?
  • Dev plan for storing binary file with technical metadata
  • Dev plan for customizing File use property
    • Do we want to revise the PCDM Use vocab at the same time?
      • Probably not — this can be a generic feature that you can plug any terms into.
    • There's an issue that ActiveFedora doesn't allow changing rdf:type, so using a custom property when creating a File would work, but you wouldn't be able to change it later.
    • Should the PCDM use values be required to be unique in a FileSet?
      • Right now, trying to add multiple Files with the same use value would give you an error.
      • Maybe there is some other functionality that would address this use case?
    • Should have some wireframes for this?
      • Given the CurationConcerns/Sufia/Hyrax work, probably premature.
        • We should probably handle this in CurationConcerns 2.0 and fold into Hyrax when appropriate.
      • Maybe we could have a pulldown menu to select the use value when adding a File, or a form for each use value allowing upload of a file with that use value and/or deleting/replacing existing Files.
      • There are also use cases for multiple Files with the same use type, or no use type, etc.  This sounds like a feature request for handling those Files.
