  • Roadmap Council Update: by Jen Young
      ◦ This year, Roadmap Council will have a rotating chair, changing quarterly
      the Council is working on getting a sense of what Samvera partners and adopters are working on and have solicited local “roadmaps” for migration/implementation/repository projects from the Samvera community
      They hope to create a template or central location where people can report those things. The ultimate goal is to get more local code into the core, and to facilitate more collaborative work in order to improve features.
