    4. phasefx will take an action for making a custom git command to spit out the invocation for checking out a specific branch from a specific repository

Template::Toolkit merge status

  • Conifer hosted a dev session in June in the attempt the accelerate the development of the TT OPAC; there is strong interest in adopting the TT OPAC prior to September (for obvious academic year reasons)
  • On July 29, Dan Scott asked on IRC what steps would need to be taken to get TT OPAC branches merged to master; Lebbeous Fogle-Weekley replied:
I have a strong desire to merge equinox work and conifer work on
tt opac before any divergence gets any messier (so maybe next week?)
The plan is to merge the Template Toolkit code into Evergreen master 
before (at the latest) the 2.2 feature freeze, so that it will be 
included in Evergreen 2.2.  We have a few remaining TODO items (branch 
merging, wiring things up), but I'm not anticipating any real 
complications there.
The goal for 2.2 is to replace the slimpac by default and not (yet) to 
replace the regular patron and staff-embedded OPAC.  However, it will be 
possible to use T-pac for both with a small amount of configuration.

Patch review queue

We don't want to let submitted patches rot, here's a list of bugs with attached patches

Also a list of bugs with "pullrequest" tags that may also contain patches

New section of dev:git with some steps for adding a signoff.

A spreadsheet of bugs that could use some attention (statuses, confirmation, etc.) is available at

(Note: patch review was pushed off to 2011-08-08 pullrequest meeting)
