2016 Evergreen Hack-A-Way

Nov 2nd - 4th, Indianapolis, IN

Working documents

Preliminary Agenda

  • Browser client – path to completion and release of a 3.0 in 2017
  • Continued discussion on developer mentorship program

Scheduled events

  • Wednesday, 2 November, 15:00ish — discuss results of the buildmaster experiment
    • Results of discussion
      • Agreement that it would be useful to carry on the buildmaster role
      • Dan Wells noted that it's useful to have less experienced buildmasters do the building, with the more experienced ones advising and helping with testing
      • There was a discussion of how to improve communication around the build and release process: in particular, we need to improve make sure that the availability of a build is announced
      • There was a discussion about whether buildmasters would follow the pattern of acting as build maintainers (as RMs typically become release maintainers). Ultimately, it was decided to try a model where there is a pool of buildmasters available to make builds for all release branches, although at any given point in time, specific buildmasters would have primary responsibility for a given release branch.
      • Dan Wells and Blake Henderson are willing to continue as buildmasters
      • Galen Charlton is throwing his hat in the ring as a buildmaster
    • Action items
      • Galen will send out a call for buildmasters
      • We'll collectively work on clarifying the release process, checklists, and release team process. Kathy will lead this discussion.
  • Thursday, 3 November, 11:00 — discuss whether to incorporate jQuery in the OPAC and guidelines for same
  • Thursday, 3 November, 13:00 — release manager proposal Q&A and vote
  • Thursday, 3 November, 13:30ish — discuss timeframe and release goals for feature-completeness and support of the web staff client
