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
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
Monitor changes pull request (AI from meeting 15-Mar-2016, http://tinyurl.com/zqa3qyp
AJ: #5 completed.
AJ: Jenkins jobs failed this morning. Unclear if specific commit caused this.
AJ Release document is here.
AJ: FF on Thursday. Working on pvCommon change.
DH: Everything builds, should verify once Jenkins recovers.
RL: C++ jobs on master branches have all recovered. After updates in basic libraries, Jenkins needs about 2.3 turns to get back to green.
AJ: APS example build has completed without errors
DH: MD changed declarations for byte buffer functions (now const functions). Is that backwards compatible?
AJ: Is break in API, but OK to break API in this release
DH: Is pvAuxInfo (Java-only API) used at all?
AJ: Need MK to decide.
<MK rejoined hangout>
MK: Quite sure it’s obsolete. DH and I will check offline: Where is it? pvDataJava?
DH: Use 6.0 version number for both C++ and Java once API difference (pvAuxInfo) is removed.
AJ: Release branch created after feature freeze. After July 7, before 7-21.
DH: Would like to add 2 things: For python, would like to add pvRequest similar to C++. Fix bug. Work on examples. What does this mean related to FF?
AJ: FF means everybody knows the added features. No new features added, while details can still evolve.
RL: API is defined
MK: Adding convenience routines similar to what’s in CPP to Java code. Features will be completed by tomorrow. DH, we need to coordinate work on examples, which I’ll complete within this week.
RL: Lacked time for CPP bundle build changes.
AJ: FF, then 2 weeks for phase 1 modules, .. more meetings until then.
DH: pvCommon changes from MS?
AJ: Just submitted pull req on Friday to only build boost on vxWorks, failed build.
MK: Parent pom.xml files still contained pv test instead of example build instructions
AJ, RL, MK, DH?,
KK: Rooms available for Friday Sept. 16, Sat 17, Sun 18
AJ: F-2-F Meeting on 16 & 17, maybe 18th or possibly hold a code-a-thon on the Sunday
AJ: We should try to concentrate on future plans and functionality, rather than minutiae of the code if possible. Will start a Google Doc and invite Bob and Greg to contribute if they can.
None. Meeting closed at 10:40 CDT
