Priority Tasks

Vote for an item by adding your name or IRC username to the end. More votes will raise the priority of an item.


  1. All new features will be documented by the time they are released to the public (e.g. release of Evergreen 2.8.0) [PERMANENT TOP ITEM]
  2. Cataloging (needs to be reorganized; do we need a cataloging working group?) [votes: Remington]
  3. Intro to SQL (Based on Dan Scott content) Yamil still needs to make some edits like proper attribution, and test that its addition does not break the full docs
  4. Library Settings Editor - (Lynn Floyd, SCLENDS is working on it)
  5. OpenSRF/Evergreen Installation Guide (two PDFs linked from email below, useful but need updating)
  6. Archiving of Circulation Transactions (new section)

Needs More Information

  • Addresses on Routing List (missing?)
