EPICS V4 Working Group Meeting, Lund 29 & 30 May 2016
Tactics and Technical Matters
* Release plans
+ 220.127.116.11 patches review (Dave)
+ New functionalities Dave wants to put in
+ java 6 compatibility
+ Parallel build dependency rules
+ Boost Problem V4 with ADCore https://sourceforge.net/p/epics-pvdata/mailman/message/35027651/
* Java building and bundling
* pvaSrv (with Marty’s presence)
Roadmap for pvaSrv in context of “QSRV” and naming (RL, MD)
pvaSrv Tests (RL)
* Possible changes to pvaSrv/ca provider (Proposal of Dave)
Implementation as "any" or union (MS, DH, GW).
* Experiences of end-users, feedback
- ca/pva -either one just get me my data.
* Licensing and Open Source-ness. Again with the licensing. Not the way to get girls.
* Towards merging v3 and v4 releases.
So far our story (decided in last f2f) is that
v4 will be released with one or a set of compatible bases. Review pros-cons. We'll
inevitably get this question again a the EPICS meeting. Want us on the same page, with
a clear and solid answer. Preferably with a deadline. 
* Towards closer integration of IOC base and pvAccess.
Device support or new link type 
Towards full replacement of RSRV. "Writing a new database routine for each record to support PVAccess." (BD, need more info)
* Status of AIs from APS working group meeting.
* Charter and Roadmap items
v4 charter review
Link from IOC to pvDatabase and RPC services

 Merging V4 into EPICS Base, pp8-10,
 PVAccess Links for the IOC Database, pp 11-13,
See who can fund dbGroup/Qsrv going on
Write the one license file (using the MIT license in most cases)
Update your module to include copy of that one LICENSE. Update your headers to contain the header text.
ALL MODULE OWNERS
wait on 5
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 modules, other than exampleCPP and pvDatabaseCPP, which set the shared library versions
