Project check-in

Any upcoming updates to discuss?

  • Avalon - reworking media player to RAMP, working in IIF. Work on speedy_af gem. Working to support for more recent versions of Solr for 8-9, and upgrading to Fedora 6. Focus on the user interface.

  • Hyrax - Softserv finished their work, on week 2 of community sprit with Surfliner, a lot of movement on closing the board. Daniel is looking at nurax-pg image viewer issue. Also need a Hyrax 4 out soon with Google Analytics 4. Working on rc for Hyrax 5, but need people to be able to see it on nurax-pg – it has some misconfiguration.

  • Metadata group has been comparing notes on Bulkrax use. This could be bubbling up as something that is still in Labs, and needs to be promoted. Could be a good discussion for this group.

Revisiting our charter: how can this group help move forward our post-valkyrization technical strategizing?

  • Things to think about:

    • planning for active fedora support schedule

    • Bulkrax integration

    • Fedora 6 work support

    • Hyrax tech lead and PO turnover in mid-2024

    • Ruby release at the end of the year

    • Development fund/pledging

    • Technical goals, and how we can implement
