  2. Hydra-Head 4 release
    1. Blacklight release - when?

           Chris Beer - Release soon but some outstanding bugs need to be fixed first

           Justin and Michael - some documentation needed, Michael will start the guide

    1. Remaining work:
      1. solrizer-fedora - Justin

           Justin working on this today, should be done today

      1. Fedora::Repository ? - Chris B.

           Simon has seen this in some rake tasks, Justin says this is an old an un-removed way of doing things in ActiveFedora.

                     Chris found this:                     Chris and Justin will figure out what to do with this
                     Matt says the jetty cleaner is much faster when relying on git instead of Fedora API

  1. 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.
    5. Hypatia work coming up - Ben A.
  2. Very Near Term work

           Justin wants to get the two Hydra head issues resolved and Blacklight released, then we can have a Hydra head release candidate

          Jessie is anticipating that the Blacklight call will end up deciding to do a release

  1. JIRA:
    1. Unassigned Version tickets no more – let's assign versions to 5 of them this call:
      • 761 - for next release (4/9)
      • 131 - Matt - won't fix, Adam - looks like old Hydrangea
      • 126, 183 - Won't fix
      • 245 - Matt, fixed
    1. Jira Weekly Round up from Sprint for Mar 19 (today):
      • 764 - Chris B. and Jessie say lets follow the Blacklight pattern for this, will send that code to Chris C.
      •  763 - Chris B.  - Blacklight is doing this, Justin - this might be difficult because the .rvmrc is committed in the project, Matt - the hudson build can switch the .rvmrc files and then build, Alicia from MediaShelf can work on this
      • 762 - Now assigned to Michael Klein, 747 - Wiki and YARD documentation are out of synch, ticket for next week
      • 739 - Matt, for next week
      • 509, 5 - Matt, for next week
      • 505 - Alicia will probably need to do this if she's working on the hudson builds
