Want to be very careful about lock in to a specific reference architecture. AWS wants to do this to encourage lock-in. We want deployment that is not locked into a specific vendor of cloud services. Not opposed to talk to them; their goal is to create some lock in. But we want to be clear and aware of this as a community, not creating things that are only deployable in AWS. Microsoft also wants into this space; worth reaching out to Azure.
Cloud Deployment WG might be the way forward. Heather will send a message and get an initial group together to write a charter.
Discussion/what’s happening with technologies
Developers Congress this week. Will make a check-in on Hyrax Valkyrization work; SoftServ would like to attend as an update. Also would be fine if this could be recorded.
Other DevCon topics are Ruby upgrades, maintenance policy, flakey tests, old Hyrax ticket backlog review
Finalizing Hyku release, in notes gathering stage. Rob is meeting with Emily at IU to discuss Hyrax and Avalon, and what path to take.
Avalon is working on Ruby 3.1 and Rails 7 upgrades. Getting rid of technical debt as well.
Metadata IG looking at OAI WG; getting demo from Surfliner and superskunk.
Daniel has been reviewing requirements, likely moving sometime in Feb with help from NU.
