Test creating a Launchpad project for the bundleCPP module
AJ: Base releases for 188.8.131.52-rc1 and 3.15.5-rc1, final releases due soon but 2 PCAS issues were raised that are still outstanding.
RL: No time to look at the deadlock issue this week. Having just moved, we’re living out of boxes at the moment, no home Internet.
DH: Last day at Diamond is Friday, Monday start at EU XFEL, last week gave V4 training at ESS, this week doing a similar course; still fixing typo’s and exercises; materials getting better incrementally. Adding top-level training slide with links. Course materials in website git repo under mainPage/informative/Training (training.slides.html). Redid the VM for the ESS training, available from the ESS website (actually 2 VMs there, pick the right one). Still tidying up, working on it for a couple more days.
AJ: We need new module owners for pvData (both) and normative Types (both).
DH: Not addressed equality stuff in docs yet. Don’t know if I’ll have any time at XFEL, probably not. Plans I’ve seen discuss Tine and Karabo, not EPICS V4.
DH: New control system being developed for EU-XFEL/DESY. Might have some Tango as well.
AJ: Many thanks to David for all the work he has put in and is still doing for the group.
MK: Second what Andrew just said!!
Next meeting: 2 weeks time (Nov 29th)
