Web services will serve as an oversight group for all non-Fedora projects including ETD, WAAND, Eagleton, OJS, Alcohol Studies, etc. Membership will expand based on need and by specific invitation (to address specific issues/projects). The reason that Web services will expand to encompass more projects and perhaps members, is so that RUL will not have one more committee. Some projects being overseen by Web Services may move to Software Architecture as relevant.
Discussion of process and how to manage details of tasks, calendar, and other project details.
We will get major features sub-divided into individual tasks (specifications, timelines, unit testing etc.) for Drupal and OJS.
Milestones towards process:
Approval of specifications
Ron, Sam, Choong, and Chad will work on the process for Drupal and OJS.
These documents can be used for reporting to CISC.
Sam shared the timeline of major tasks and milestones for Release 1.1 and its projected launch date.
Alternate tiles are prepared.
Display of plugins has been updated.
Funder icon display has been updated.
Grace will provide metadata info to Choong on how to properly allow for "related titles."
Process of takedown:
Grace will contact the owners.
Announcement of coming down to user bases (via a liaison).
When a project comes down, a redirect will be set up to a message that the project is gone.
The project should be properly rolled up with full documentation and then archived (if relevant).
Chad will generate a new table of projects with their status for migrating, archiving etc.
Grace wants us to have a plan for all projects by the end of May.
A tool that helps create an EAD finding aid with its associated documents and objects. Fruciano wants it networked on a server for the purpose of internal management, not as a preservation platform. There seem to be MySQL server issues as well as desktop/client maintenance issues.
Sewell inquired whether donors for database/index products could be acknowledged by
1) On the description page of the individual e-resource from the Indexes and Databases page
2) In the Iris record.
3) On the page on page of the e-resource itself
Web Services can address #1. #3 is impossible since we have now input into vendor capabilities.
For #2, this will be referred to IPAC.
Sam will forward to IPAC and follow up on #1. Web services expects that
The description field/label "Funder" can be used. Label probably needs to be renamed.
Kayo and Choong have been talking to people on whether we need two subject lists and what might be
included in those lists.
Choong created an online form to collect liaison information.
This is waiting on Software Development for the best process to do these conversions.
At a future meeting we will step through the projects-to-be-converted chart.
Stylesheet (Jeffery) - After Release 5.0 this can be taken off.
Classics texts (Jeffery) - In-process.
Vertigo (Jeffery) - In limbo. Grace will talk to Michael Joseph.
Chad has set up a video portal for NJ videos for NJVid and is in a demo space in RUCore. It includes all video collections in RUCore. This is only a temporary demo portal.
Rhonda asked for a portal for classics.
The creation of new portals will require a policy decision by CISC.
Script is designed, but is only semi-automated. Until volume expands, it can stay semi-automated.
