Component Maintenance Working Group (Phase 4)

Given the availability of the chair and the high prioritization of certain Hyrax and Avalon features addressed by other members, the Component Maintenance Working Group has been on temporary hiatus from 10/01/20 onwards. As of 08/24/21, there are active efforts to reconvene and resume advancing the charter for Phase 4 of this Working Group. Please see Component Maintenance Interest Group for these renewed efforts.

Scope & Objectives

The fourth, recurring, phase of this working group will continue the ongoing maintenance of identified core components in the community, via planned sprints and communication with product owners. Work on features for these components is considered out of scope. Working group members will plan and participate in these sprints, as well as communicate that planning and welcome contributions from the larger community. The core components supported for this phase are identified within the following:  It should further be noted that our efforts shall be coordinated with the appropriate Samvera governance bodies.

During the sustaining phase of this working group, the group will re-evaluate the WG charter on a yearly basis roughly aligning with Samvera Developer Congress in Winter 2023 (tentatively).
