    • RDT, Synchronized Project, Remote status
      • John Eblen - working on new progress monitor, git efficiency (via 1.7), wizard changes. Wizard changes include specification of git location: Beth asked John to consider a more ui-compact way to specify alternate location of git - (currently takes up a good portion of the dialog which is already crowded). Brian suggested an "Advanced" button to setup other non-default info on another dialog. We also talked about ideas for including it in preferences, and should be be global, per-project or per-connection? Roland remarked that anyone who noticed performance complaints previously should test the new implementation and report if it helps. Must have git 1.7
    • Target System Configurations (previously known as Resource Managers)
    • several new TSCs added from Juelich. Beth is planning to provide some filtering of the growing number of TSCs to make selection easier. Perhaps a selection for this too to store default filter. Also import/export would be useful.
    • DaveW is looking at a ResMgr for LSF. For Kepler and maybe Juno SR2 too if it can be done in time. Jay thinks NCAR Yellowstone runs LSF. Dave has a small LSF cluster for testing. Inclusion in Juno SR2 would allow us to get some user feedback before Kepler.
    • Testing - Brian played around with Jubula over the holidays. Promising. Beth is interested in helping get some PTP testing automated or semi-automated and can help.
    • Docs, Help, N&N
      • New updates have been added to org.eclipse.ptp.doc.user/html/rms (and link put in table at 03pRunConfig.html)
    • Other PTP contributions
  3. Education and Outreach
    • Monthly PTP User call - last one was Wed Nov 28 - see PTP User Meetings - Ideas solicited for next one Jan. 23
    • Tutorials, BOFs, other outreach opportunities
      • XSEDE (July 2013 San Diego) https://www.xsede.org/web/xsede13/call-for-participation - tutorial proposals due March 8
      • SC13 (Nov 17-22 Denver) http://sc13.supercomputing.org/content/tutorials - tutorial proposals due March 25
      • Ideas for any different focus for upcoming tutorials this year?
      • Jay is giving a talk this week at Austin AMS weather modeling meeting. Using PTP on weather modeling codes. Will post link to paper/talk.
      • Another tutorial opportunity at SW Engineering Assembly at UCAR. Emphasis on performance Tools. April. Jay and Wyatt are discussing.
      • Roland wrote up sync internals for DOE report. Should he submit it as a paper somewhere? Jay suggests XSEDE.
      • PTP User Advisory Board - Jay will extend query for dates for first meeting. Need a process for feeding requirements from users into PTP development plans.
