Agenda

If you have suggestions for appropriate agenda topics, please post them to the management list, or send them to the Project Coordinator (Peter A. Knoop).

Report outs on projects can serve as starting points for discussion topics, however, items that are just status updates on projects might be redirected to posts to the community, if we are time-limited.

Tentative Agenda:

9:00am - 9:30am (Room: Governors IV)

  • Introductions
  • Review Agenda

9:30am - 12:30pm (15-minute break in middle)

12:30pm - 1:30pm

  • Lunch on your own.

1:30pm - 5:00pm (15-minute break in middle)

  • Products and Project Management Thread
    • My Top 5 Priorities for the next release of Sakai (Michael Korcuska)
      • "Things I want", not necessarily "Things I'm working on." Can shared priorities be found?
      • 5 minutes per person
    • Exploration of new models which would provide resources to address priorities outside of institutional goals (e.g. how do we ever get around to normalizing all of the XML LOBs in the database when our faculty could care less about this?). (Lance Speelmon, Michael Korcuska)
    • Future of contrib-provisional-core track?
    • What would a stronger product management focus mean? Where what's included with the release might arise from a coherent product definition and trajectory rather than the sum of all things that developers have completed at a certain date.
    • Potential changes to the schedule that might come from releasing based on product goals rather than fixed dates?
    • QA (Megan May)
      • Possible changes to the sort of testing carried out during QA (e.g. performance testing as a standard matter?)
      • New position
      • Incorporating Static Code Review
      • Development of generic test environment
      • 2.5 Functional Test scripts

9:00am - 2:00pm (15-minute break in middle)

  • Products and Project Management Thread (split group in to two tracks)
    • (track 1)Site Info
      • Who can contribute to the effort? what can they contribute?
      • What's the right way to re-factor it architecturally?
      • Focus for some of Sakai Foundation UX resources?
    • (track 2)Sakai Outreach – a continuing discuss on Sakai promotion/marketing efforts
    • (track 1)Content Authoring (e.g., Melete/Modules, Soussa, Sakaibrary SRG, Rich-Text Editor, Samigo, ePortfolio, ...) (Michael Korcuska, Mark J. Norton, Jim Eng)
    • (track 2) User Directory and Authentication integration. (Ray Davis)
      • Grouper

Postponed to mail lists, conference calls, and/or Paris Meeting?

  • (question) Large-scale Sakai issues - performance problems that come up when running Sakai with tens of thousands of users and thousands of sites; develop some best-practice guidelines for developers to leverage. (John A. Lewis)
    • Will there be sufficient attendance for this topic? David Haines will not be attending. (If this topic is of interest to you, please let me know.)
