Old Business

EveryoneHow do we feel the open call went?

Good.  A pull request was submitted based on a conversation from the call and there was a good number of participants and conversation.  

It would have been nice to have more participation from a wider number in the audience.  The group would like to find a way to make these calls more community driven instead of being program team presentations only. 

40 min

New Business/Open Discussion


External solr, upcoming release, other updates


Another community open call?

Ideas from the last open call:

  • "Show us your plugin"
  • How to create/manage plugins
  • Bring your problem for real time trouble shooting

The team decided to try a discussion session at the online forum on plugins.  This would be a 1 hour session.  Online forum dates tbd.

Depending on how the next few months go, it may be beneficial to have the next open call in very early 2022 on external Solr.  We can discuss this at our next meeting after the external Solr webinar on the 3rd.


New additions to the group.  

Two suggestions made since our last meeting. To be discussed as a group. 

Tabling this until more members of the team can attend and discuss.

Future Items:

  • Team project: Pull request / commit history policy and documentation
    This is a worthwhile project that the team will back burner until after the development docs review. There may be some content to poach from that. It is worth identifying how much of what we need from people submitting PRs can be automated (review of the check boxes/requirements at the bottom of the form) and if/how to apply GitHub branch rules.
