@Heather Greer Klein
Component Maintenance Interest Group Update
In order to advance the scheduling of regular meetings, this is to propose a weekly meeting date and time for the IG.
Updates for Hyrax
Establishing the status of Valkyrized Hyrax
Lynette and Julie are working through the featured test cases
There are still some blocking issues
There is a sub-group of the Board meeting with Lynette in order to try and find resources to provide assistance for these efforts
Blacklight 7 Bootstrap Work
James should verify this, but there shouldn’t be anything outstanding for core components
Otherwise, this is just focused upon Hyrax
(James will complete this)
OAI-PMH and Hyrax/Hyku integration is going to be addressed by the SMIG
This will not warrant a new WG
Upgrade to Rails 6
Is this dependent upon Valkyrie?
Valkyrie does test against Rails 5.2: https://github.com/samvera/valkyrie/blob/main/.circleci/config.yml
It is separate, Valkyrie does not depend upon Rails 6
Blacklight is more impacted by the Rails 6 upgrade
This is actively being developed by Heather
There are sections within this which are going to detail in-person events (e. g. presence at conferences)
Is Samvera Connect going to have any virtual options for attendance?
Perhaps, but it should be recalled that there is going to be Virtual Connect for those who need to attend exclusively virtually
Besides OAI-PMH, there was a discussion for Hyrax supporting ResourceSync
Is DPLA actively using this? It is currently supported
There is a desire to have alt text values
Within the system, there is no solution for supporting this currently
Outside of the main source code base, how might this be supported?
Virtual Connect 2022
Should there be a separate presentation addressing specific Hyrax topics of interest?
Accessibility doesn’t necessarily fall within the scope of the SMIG (it isn’t necessarily metadata)
Perhaps a lightning talk?
The call for proposals can be found here: Samvera Virtual Connect 2022
Supporting Hyrax Releases
Once 4.0 is released, will there be any adjustments made to the release policies?
Maintenance plan for 2.x and 3.x releases need to be explicitly clarified
There was a discussion here:
Samvera Tech Call 2022-03-23
As this was discussed during a tech. call, the next appropriate meeting would be to draft a proposal detailing the preferred approach, and then shared with the next Partner Meeting for 05/02/2022
Meeting adjourned at 09:30 AM PDT/12:30 EDT PM
