  • Hyrax Maintenance Working Group update - Julie Hardesty and Daniel Pierce

    • Hyrax Product Owner transition (Julie to Rebekah Kati, UNC-Chapel Hill)

      • Rebekah will take over the HMWG after Connect. Julie and Rebekah have been meeting and discussing work in progress, project boards, and processes. 

    • Hyrax 4.0.0beta1 update

      • This is out! Applied to nurax-dev. Have discovered some issues in the current community effort that are connected to the 4.0 release that will need to be addressed for a release candidate.

      • Beta2 expected before a release candidate. Chris Colvard has a PR (#5850) out for nested collections indexing issues. Would also be backported to Hyrax 3. Chris deletes several hundred lines of code in this – this is all done in Solr graph query parser instead.

      • Daniel will be getting beta 2 out ASAP after current community effort

      • Question: what do we know about new bootstrap issues? Small things that need to be addressed in beta2. Small functional issues.
