2. Status

AJ: Base releases for 3.14.12.6-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.

3. David Hickin’s Responsibilities

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.

MK: Karabo?

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!!
