  3. ActiveFedora configuration shouldn't require yml
    1. Configuration pattern for all pieces of stack?
      1. Fixed in rc9 with implementation of Configurator pattern
      2. Documentation is needed for "how to configure without YAML" as well as "how to extend ActiveFedora without breaking the config pattern"
  4. Hydra-Head 4 release
    1. Blocked by Blacklight release - Blacklight call later today
    2. We should add a Ruby 1.9 Hudson build
    3. Current Hudson server is too much of a dog to support our Jetty-based builds. We need something beefier.
    4. It also requires a custom SQLite build.
    5. Time for a new server or server image?
    6. Alicia may have time to work on a build server this week. Matt will check.
    7. The IRC logger also lives on that server
    8. Ensure IP address stays the same (elastic IP)
  5. LibDevConX topics:
    1. model organization in hydra-head
    2. load from Solr (vs. Fedora) - Michael K.
    3. Variations on Video (authn/authz) - Mike S. and Chris C.
    4. RDF datastream - Mike G.
  6. Very Near Term work
    1. ActiveFedora::Base.exists?(pid) - check for pid without loading object
    2. Return a proper 404 from catalog controller when trying to view a nonexistent PID
      1. Possible dependent on a new upstream/Rubydora feature?
  7. Hydra Head 4? Work on components?
  8. JIRA:
    1. Unassigned Version tickets no more – let's assign versions to 5 of them this call:
    2. Jira Weekly Round up from Sprint for Mar 12 (today):
