At the community meeting last Thursday we discussed prioritization. We asked each company for their priorities in the form of three questions below.
        • The top five requirements you think Aperi needs to succeed
          • The top five requirements your company needs as prerequisite to adopting or contributing to Aperi code base
        • The top five requirements you might be willing to work on
    • The Aperi survey is available: You can access the survey from the main graphic on the Aperi home page, or directly here:
      • The survey responses go to a new mailing list aperi-survey. To keep anonymous, and because of mailing list rules, all responses show up in Tom’s name.

  • Development items/issues:
    • Christoph ran into issues during his fabric unit test. He received authentication failures with the CIM client. After investigation, it turns out these problems were fixed in the latest version of the SBLIM CIM client, version 1.3.3. Aperi currently has Version 1.3.2 approved. Tom will check with Eclipse legal to see if we need approval for a maintenance upgrade.
