OSP 2.6 Issues
- Chad at Marist found an issue with the due date of an assignment when adding the assignment to a matrix cell. He agreed to document the issue in Sakai Jira.

- On the next community call (June 1, 2009), we will ask Noah, Beth, and Chris about the status of SAK-15541, 16004, and 16045.
OSP 2.7 Issues
- SAK-15822 is resolved.

OSP Help discussion
- Question of who uses IU KB
- Possibility of moving OSP Help into IU KB so that IU maintains docs in database and provides them for each release
- Beth reformatted current OSP Help docs from rSmart Help docs and put them into subversion
- If move OSP Help to IU KB, community will need to communicate changes to KB staff but will benefit from free labor of formatting and training
- IU KB would maintain docs but not content, would look to OSP community for subject matter expertise
- OSP needs streamlined system for maintaining and upgrading OSP Help
- IU KB set up docs
- OSP community has process for reviewing and updating OSP Help content
- Possibility of different institutions accepting responsibility to update OSP Help content for specific tools
- Jan offered to present a plan for OSP Help to the community in which each institution would agree to serve as a content expert for one or more tools, take a look at the 2.5 Help (and copy to MS Word), go do QA on 2.6, revise the Help docs, and send them to person designated to collect the documents.
- Lynn (or Beth) will approach the KB group about this plan.
