  • Project Leader Notes (Ted)
    • Ted is leaving IBM to join a friend at a small company. His last day will be this Friday. The team thanked Ted for his Aperi leadership and wished him the best in his new venture.
    • This will end Ted’s role as project lead for Aperi, though he may continue to be on aperi-dev. He nominated Tom Guinane to take on the project lead role, especially since he's been effectively leading many aspects of Aperi development already. This suggestion was well received by those on the phone. It was suggested Ted put this information in a note to the aperi-dev community for feedback to allow folks to participate who were not on the call today.
      • If anyone has any objections to Tom taking this role, please respond to Ted ASAP.
      • Also, if anyone would like to propose someone else as lead or co-lead, please do so -- would we would welcome more participation!
    • If we don't hear anything by the end of this Wednesday the 11th, we'll consider that the motion has passed, so to speak, and Tom will be the Aperi project lead. Co-leads can be added at any time.
  • Release Engineer Notes (Todd)
    • The Linux build was integrated last week and is part of the daily build.
  • Aperi Downloads
    • Latest stats
    • We have crossed the 500 downloads milestone! Huzzah!
  • Project Schedule:
    • Latest Schedule Updates made in the file.
    • Dave indicated a number of items have completed coding for the GUI, but the team needs a week or so to finish the build integration.
    • One issue is that the Jetty code from Eclipse is different from the code at mortbay. They need to figure out what is different and resolve.
    • The European team is out today due to the Easter Monday holiday. However, status was sent last Friday from Rodica and Simona:
      • Rodica:
        • ID 55 Develop Authentication/Authorization Module 100%
        • ID 56 Integrate Authentication/Authorization Module 75%
        • ID 60 Build/Package/Install Integration 50%
      • The report implementation is still underway and Craig will help to integrate with bundled Jetty.
      • Simona started to look at task "Validate existing SMI-S functions against Net App devices" for R4. She had some questions on first steps for Ted and he will respond.
    • Ted has identified a finer task breakdown for the Equinox migration. This was added to the schedule. We need to find owners for these tasks as Ted will not be here to complete them.
  • IDVT
