ALL MODULE OWNERS
On your module pages, remove the current/previous links; replace “Working Draft” with version number of module, which has its own numbering scheme, like 5.0.2 for pvDataCPP. Eg “Version 5.0.2 18/Nov/2015”
AJ check status, ALL MODULE OWNERS
Simplify Literature page and home page to help users find novice oriented documentation.
Commit changes to all C++ modules, other than exampleCPP and pvDatabaseCPP, which set the shared library versions

AJ asked about dropping the above table since it hasn’t changed much recently.
RL pointed out that several AIs have just been marked complete so will go away, and others are on people who don’t attend Telecon’s much.
RL: For Java code all tagging should be left for the person doing the bundling.
DH: Something wrong in the design as to why you have to do that.
RL: This is due to Maven; no -SNAPSHOT tag allowed, this is why there’s a Maven release plugin to do all the work. We have no control over this. My email from Friday describes this, everything must be tagged and updated at the same time, which wasn’t a big deal to handle. Don’t know if maven release plugin can handle independent module releases.
DH: Because RL did the bundle we didn’t get all the release notes done, and the submodule release notes aren’t included in the final jarfile.
RL: This is a bug, need to add those.
MK: Problem reported in email with how someone runs the examples; scripts missing?
RL: Will take a look.
AJ: Will need re-tag normativeTypesCPP after changing PVDATA_BRANCH= in the jenkins/cloudbees_build script.
MK: AJ will tag the modules
AJ: Yes, because MO’s don’t know about the cloudbees_build script change.
MK: Java modules don’t all have automated tests, need to do manual testing.
AJ: Should be an aim for future releases to ensure java modules have JUnit tests.
MK: Cross-testing needs both
MS: Easier to run cross-tests on CPP than on Java.
AJ: Asked RL about uploading documents
RL: Jobs upload docs automatically, looking at the tag.
AJ: Please look at the bundleCPP README.md file and send comments.
RL: Yup; for -pre1 we should be getting the code to work, for -rc1 have the docs finalized. Please file github issues for things you notice.
AI on AJ: Complete the C++ tagging and bundling process for -pre1 by the end of today.
AJ: Will be on vacation next week, back on 8/11
RL: Can skip a telecon next week, it’s fairly clear what’s happening next.
DH: Wanted to know how much time for additional RPC examples and work on the documentation before the -rc1.
MK: Can you make those example RPC changes on the master branch first.
AJ: We won’t be creating the -rc1 before the 18th.
