    • Brian is working on API documentation and developing robust examples
  • How ArchivesSpace handles releases/the release schedule

Team topics/open discussion

Questions about best practice for setting up an OAI interface.  There is some confusion about how to do this and ArchivesSpace's tech docs could probably be reviewed to improve this https://archivesspace.github.io/tech-docs/architecture/oai-pmh/ page and it would be helpful to have a page on turning the OAI feed on here, ideally with some example nginx &/or apache config: https://archivesspace.github.io/tech-docs/readme_implement.html

A discussion came up about how and why ArchivesSpace renders pdfs differently in the SUI and PUI.  improving pdf performance is an older issue that this team could probably advise on and maybe see some movement but we would need wider community input.  We discussed identifying older issues and Jiras that CC could advise on and then pass to Dev Pro for their input and community consideration. 

Next month Brian is going to present this issue to the team for consideration and discussion.
