Agenda & Notes
Any other items for the agenda?
Update: Advancing Hyku End of Grant status in context of ongoing Hyku Community collaborations
Can review Short update at Samvera Connect as well as Community Update.
Hyku 4 has been released
Much of what group wanted to accomplish is there, but may not be easy to find. Look at the shared group roadmap for additional information
Questions to consider by Partners
Continued dev calls - folks from ubiquity have left - needs leadership. Dev calls are continuing, but need additional folks.
What else needs to come up on the shared roadmap? - what needs updating? - what can come off?
Proposal to Lyrasis Catalyst program was not funded
What does that mean in terms of UVA’s contribution for Hyku
Robin Ruggaber: Does Hyku as a project intend to adopt Fedora 6? If so, when?
Hyku will support Fedora 6 as soon as Hyrax does
Need a diversity of service providers to support expectation that need will grow
Ease with which features in Hyku can be implemented in Hyrax
Understanding is that anything in Hyku is in Hyrax, but comparing features would be a worthwhile exercise. Anything in blue circle in Adoption path can be used in Hyrax, Add ons would take some work.
