Samvera Roadmaps Alignment Group

Contribute your institution's information to the Roadmaps Alignment document and help us identify needed features and collaboration opportunities

Scope & Objectives

The Roadmaps Alignment Group (formerly called "Samvera Roadmap Council") works to identify conflicts and areas of alignment between the roadmaps of the Core Components Owners, Hyrax, Hyku, and Avalon. This group works in consultation with the Metadata Interest Group, the Repository Management Interest Group, and Samvera Service Providers. The Group identifies cross-project development opportunities, helps to arrange maintenance sprints, and coordinates communication to the Samvera Community about these activities.  This group is chartered per the Governance Recommendations adopted by the Samvera Partners in April 2018.
