EPICS Version 4 Telecon, 12-Jan-2016
Present: TK, GW, RL, MD, DH, MK, GS
TOPIC: Process for AI tracking and rollover
GW: wants to continue using the Kanban sheet at
Agreement on using the in-minutes AI list for the short term things, with RL (w/ support from GW and AJ) doing the rollover.
Every telecon shall have an agenda topic “AI update” to quickly (no discussion) collect the updates to the table.
TOPIC: pvDataCPP and Java buffer overflow. Patch release required? 
MK: MS should verify changes
GS/MD: MS has verified pull request for pvDataCPP.
MD: Can verify with MS whether Java ver changes woudl take too long for patching CPP.
RL: Patch release means adding code to relevant module release branches. Then bundling everything. Still need 2 dates for testing deadlines - one for core modules and one for rest.
DH: Are all changes in pvDataCPP/Java.
DH: so can cherry-pick across?
RL: would like tests included in package to verify the bug is no longer present
MD: that would be difficult
RL in that case let’s just fix it.
MD: I will chase down Java - whether it’s fixed.
RL: Would like email to group when all fixes are in so we can test.
MK: Include MS.
AI on DH: Usher the patch fix for buffer overflow through to release.
TOPIC: Gateway status
GW: SLAC hopes to test
TK: ESS would like also to test
MD: Bear in mind that I expect this to break.
TOPIC: ESS EPICS meeting EPICS V4 training status
GW: Need volunteer to work up the course contents and decide who presents what.
MK: Rather not lead but can help
AI on TK: Prepare a list of course contents for ESS EPICS Meeting training.
DH: I have sent Marty an outline of training, I can send that again.
MK: I will get back to upgrading the developer’s guide after moving examples to pvExamples from individual modules.
TOPIC: Architecture diagrams
Specify additions necessary to add watermark support to pvAccess.
MD or MS
See who can fund dbGroup
Add Cloudbees script that generates documentation links to the bundle jobs, run this for previous releases
Create a release links file (docbuild/<version>/index.html) for previous versions
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”
ALL MODULE OWNERS
Change the C++ bundling to add creation of a tarfile that includes Base 3.15.x
Delete/hide mercurial repos on sourceforge, except “port driver” and some more which have not been ported
Simplify Literature page and home page to help users find novice oriented documentation.
Write Mark to clarify process
Usher the patch fix for buffer overflow through to release.
Prepare a list of course contents for ESS EPICS Meeting training.
