- 2.4 release:
- Let's revisit all of the dependencies that we currently install from source for newer versions or for ditching, including:
- yaz - currently installing 4.2.32; current source version is 4.2.51
- Net::Z3950::SimpleServer - currently installing 1.15, current source version is 1.17
- SpiderMonkey and libjs - who cares about the versions, but should we officially deprecate script-based circ as of 2.4?
- libdbi / libdbi-drivers - only installed from source on Debian Squeeze and Ubuntu Lucid
- XULRunner - let's look at merging https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1043819 so we can more automatically get the latest stable version (make bump-xul), getting stuck with old versions exposes us to known vulnerabilities
- Q: Would it be worth turning this into a documented, repeatable release process that ultimately the release manager signs off on (although naturally anyone else could do the actual work & provide assessments / suggestions).
- Proposed addition to release manager processes: No release tarball shall be released unless at least one person has gone through a clean install and confirmed that it actually works.
- Proposed addition to release manager processes: Clearly articulate (in the release notes?) which operating systems and browsers (and versions & bitness of each) are supported by a given release. Not just Linux distros, which should have one or more distro champions; but also Windows (to answer anticipated questions like: "Is the staff client supported on Windows 8 64-bit?"); and a line in the sand for old browsers (Internet Explorer 6 anyone?) and potentially cutting-edge releases (IE 10? Ubuntu Raring?). This also assumes that any statements of support have corresponding testing.
Software Performance Evaluation
- MassLNC has started the process of creating an RFP to find a consultant to perform a software performance evaluation. In general, we would like any feedback from the community on this RFP. Also, we'll take any recommendations for people or companies we should send this to.
- We would like to involve the community in selecting a consultant(s). Is anyone willing to volunteer to work with us on this?
