IMLS grant for API-X:
JHU received a grant (submitted in Jan) to support development on API-X through December. Deliverables are:
Public release of the API-X architectures
Associated documentation and dissemination
Some common interest extensions (validation uc from art institute of chicago)
This means Aaron will have more time to devote to the development of the API-X
What constitute a public release?
(Aaron) The intent is to have a release (to maven-central, etc) in fcrepo-labs on the core components of the architecture and one/two extensions that fulfill the high level requirements set forth by stakeholders.
The extensions would be hand picked to be widely valuable within the community
Task and Progress tracking
The grants include a low resolution timeline.
Need to create tickets in JIRA or GitHub
Create a list of tasks send to SHs
Once approve create actual issue in JIRA or GitHub
Comparison of JIRA vs GitHub for the issues tracking
TODO: Aaron will create a document proposing the initial set of tasks to be circulated amongst the group for ratification
Once tasks are in GitHub, let’s have a meeting (next meeting) to assign tasks to people based on their availability
Which umbrella does this work live under?
Currently under fcrepo-labs
Under the Duraspace umbrella: a fedora sub-project
This work would have its rights. Everyone who works on this would sign a Duraspace CLA
Who has the authority to accept PRs?
Merging Aaron B’s branch from github
Aaron B will go through and address the comments in place and merge when done.
Use of Docker; Islandora and Hydra using similar sets of images, in possibly similar wa
Aaron gave half hours presentation on API-X
Using camel for routing
Want to be able to characterize costs (e.g. added) latency when evaluating technologies like Camel, identify concerns if they present themselves
Seems to be similar patterns to CLAW, need to explore more
AOB: Preliminary documents/diagrams to be committed to the document section of the github repo
