Please fill in actual activity for Last Month (January) and intended activity for This Month (February) for projects you are responsible for. For reference, the intended activity recorded for January is included where an entry had been made (it is considered unhelpful to alter this to match what actual activity was :). It is acceptable to change devproj milestones as part of this process, however if you do please indicate that you have done so below, for example by adding a Change of Plan bullet point, so that the meeting is alerted to the changes.

  • Review/Update Submit Practical Submission System
    • January: Still hunting for the exact origins of the data files.
    • Last Month: Figured out where the data files come from. Found "examsubmit" too. Hacked the "year" concept out of the source, got it roughly working. Eliminated all compilation warnings.
    • This Month: Find and neutralise remaining bugs; hack the accompanying scripts; test thoroughly; beta test.

  • Revisit Account Management
    • January: Limited sxw effort due to holidays (data cleanup work somewhat stalled on account lifecycle). Complete host ids work (including issue of child ownership). Complete new database work.
    • Last Month: Some work on identifying accounts for cleanup and collaboration with us-unit on best approach. Host id work stalled on required changes to framework concerning child ownership, otherwise largely complete (albeit pending spanning map work). Stores/conduits for 3g database written and tested - not in service yet - awaiting go-ahead from RAT due to data issues. Testing of conduit-runs in parallel to speed-up role-based changes -> ldap. CSOs volunteered to get involved with prometheus.
    • This Month: Sort out project management issues, concerning time available and where to draw line under project. Complete host id work. Make start on additional identities work if time/effort allows. Account lifecycle progress (to be tracked in separate project). Get CSOs involved. Updates to documentation. More data cleanup work (also in separate project). Put 3g conduit into service and work with RAT on combining feeds.

  • Final Stages of Commodity WCMS work
    • January: Resubmit for sign off if Craig manages to do the restore.
    • Last Month: Roger was added to the list of people to try the restore, but neither has had time to try it out yet.
    • This Month: Get someone to try the restore.

  • EUCLID Interoperability
    • January: Nothing (although there have been some minor adjustments to the applicant feed to account for unanticipated behaviour in EUCLID).
    • Last Month: Modified one sync process and added one further sync process (to an existing feed).
    • This Month: Nothing.

  • School Database Revamp
    • January: Roll out of the system for IGS. Server inserts. PGR reports (including portal web server and framework). Minor work to facilitate the move of legacy ITO and COS displays from the old interface into the new system. Continue with medium priority snagging items.
    • Last Month: Rolled out system to the IGS (Jan 10th). Portal web server and framework prototyped (and now in service as of 21st). Initial wave of PGR reports implemented. Pre-existing parent tree server inserts implemented. Minor work to facilitate the move of legacy ITO and COS displays almost complete.
    • This Month: Roll out first post-deployment update release. Roll out of the new system for ITO and COs. Finish server inserts. Finalise and document portal.

  • Software build farm
    • January: Figure out how to handle a few tricky problems with the build daemon such as killing mock when a job has been going too long. Finish the component. Finish the user-level documentation. Setup all the necessary servers and move the whole system into the user-acceptance phase.
    • Last Month: LCFG component support for clients and daemons completed. Basic, functional web interface created. Servers for test service setup and beta-testing begun. Support added for sending reports via email.
    • This Month: More documentation. More testing. Give technical talk to COs. Fix some minor issues.

  • AV facilities
    • January: Mediascape not scheduled
    • Last Month: faulty audio kit finally returned

    • Last Month:nothing done,spent a large amount of time on semester 2 software.
    • This Month: finish dhcpd component and sort out networking.

  • Improvements in mirror management
    • January: Finish it.
    • Last Month: Actually spent some time on it! Have added improvements to the existing rmirror component and created macros to make it easier to say "mirror this" on the client and "mirror that" on the rmirror server. Still working on the logging/reporting. Currently only spent 20 hours on it, initially estimated 2 weeks.
    • This Month: Still finish it.

  • Redevelop User Documentation
    • January: continue with build of drupal site
    • Last Month: continued with build of drupal site. Little response to Carol's document and invitation for comment on site so far. Carol attended half-day web course. Started vaildation of existing documentation.
    • This Month: continue with building of drupal site and validation - milestone date amended. Circulate planned workflow to COs and arrange meeting to discuss.

  • Implement print quotas via Pcounter
    • January: Waiting for response from IS.
    • Last Month: Nothing.
    • This Month: Nothing expected. (This project is stalled from our point of view. Any activity here depends on hearing of progress from IS: the current 'technical' problems are at their end.)
