  4. OM
    1. OM 1.7 was released on Friday October 26. Needed for ActiveFedora release
  5. ActiveFedora
    1. Released a version 5.0.0.rc1 because it depends on solrizer 2.0.0 (which is a major change)
      1. How it writes SOLR documents changes.
      2. Happy coincidence that it matches Hydra 5
    2. Deprecate has_relationship, has_bidirectional_relationship
      1. Justin will write the ticket.
  6. Hydra-Head
    1. Should we remove hydra-file-access as a dependency of hydra-head?
      1. Matt (Mediashelf) and Justin (Mediashelf) discussed this; If hydra-file-access is a "junk drawer", then require implementor of a Hydra instance to explicitly declare.
      2. Decision concerning maintenance of hydra-file-access should defer to number of downloads.
    2. HYDRA-862: RightsMetadata isn't getting into solr; need to add the :index_as options to the relevant terms.  See Solrizer below... (awead)
      1. Chris Colvard submitted a patch; Justin Coyne submitted tests and wrapped it up.
  7. Solizer
    1. released a, 2.0.0.rc2, 2.0.0.rc3 which actually fixes HYHYEAD-827 (rc1 was an incomplete solution). Add :index_as=>[:searchable] to your om docs!
      1. rc3 addresses edge case
    2. Need to release a full version
    3. Instruction for :index_as if you have a particular data type (i.e. boolean, integer) (awead)
      2. Ticket to be created for documentation
  8. Solrizer-Fedora
    1. For some reason, bundler doesn't pull down the most recent version and I have to run from master off of Git. (awead)
      1. instead of using `bundle` run `bundle update`
  9. Very Near Term Work
    1. Collaborative roadmapping for ScholarSphere
      1. Penn State, Notre Dame will be talking about pieces vs. whole cloth
      2. Justin suggested that at the Q4 Developer Meetup we could discuss extraction
      3. Rick (Notre Dame) and Mike Giarlo (Penn State) should be discussing extraction
  1. Holding on HydraHead 5 as we want it using Blacklight 4
  2. JIRA
