We've delayed this a bit, waiting for various third-party modules to become Angular 4 compatible
Still not the highest priority, but we do want to upgrade soon
Texas A&M have a DSpace Sprint coming up from June 5-16. However, much of this time is working towards their local upgrade to DSpace 6. May have some time to spare to grab a few DSpace 7 tickets if the process goes well.
Open Repositories 2017 prep
We may want to implement simple theming...likely not yet configurable in the UI layer. But, just show an alternative theme (perhaps based on the new DSpace logo)
We need to update the demo REST API with some "real" looking data. Tim will email Art & Andrea about this.
We need simple theming in the UI, to minimally manage logos, fonts, colors (also at Community/Collection levels)
Question: This will require persistence to what is stored in the theme. Will that persistence be stored on the node.js layer, or provided in the DSpace REST API?
