Please fill in actual activity for Last Month (May) and intended activity for This Month (June) for projects you are responsible for. For reference, the intended activity recorded for May 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.

  • Investigate AFS on ECDF storage
    • May: Assuming its still resourced, I'll get stuck into this this month.
    • Last Month: Spoke to Orlando, but they are busy until the middle of this month on some tender. However, he did explain that the likely options are (as we suspected) AFS on top of GPFS, or our own block level access to their SAN. So in the meantime I'm going to look at GPFS and setting up a test cell (which I've not done before)
    • This Month: AFS test cell, some playing with a local GPFS, or ECDF's if I've got access by then.

  • LCFG client refactor - code cleanup
    • May: Improve configuration and option handling. Eradicate hard wired paths. Split client code and LCFG component into separate packages. Clean up the way external processes are executed.
    • Last Month: Improved config handling. Eradicated hard-wired paths. Split client and component into separate projects. Cleaned up how om is called. Changed fetch code so that it regularly looks up server addresses. Split node name from host name. Fixed component so that it no longer hangs when problems occur at Start and Stop time.
    • This Month: Finish API documentation. Finish tests.

  • Replace CVS with SVN on www.inf
    • May: Complete testing, and arrange service conversion and switchover schedule.
    • Last Month: Tested on small fileset OK, then tested on 98G of copy www.inf data. Experimented with various SVN authorisation options; noticed "Attic clash" and "non-standard" filenames; investigated DB-generated file integration.
    • This Month: Finish testing, confirm preferred DB-generated file integration option and switchover schedule.
