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

  • Revisit Account Management
    • September: Wait for dependency (#164 AFS test suites)
    • Last Month: code review of afs test suites continuing
    • This Month: complete review, start writing up

  • Inventory Improvement
    • September: Propose holding two meetings - one to check design matches "user" requirements, and one for technical discussion
    • Last Month: Held technical design meeting. Schema change proposed and implemented in prototype. "User" requirement meeting scheduled for 2nd October at 2pm in IF-3.02.
    • This Month: Modify design if required as a result of "User" requirement meeting. Produce final design document. Play with perl catalyst framework.

  • Prometheus AFS PTS conduit
    • September: Address any issues from review
    • Last Month: Code reviewed
    • This Month: Deal with issues raised in review

  • Account reconciliation
    • September: Pass list of disabled account to support for archival, then deletion. Delete old machine principals from KDC. Check project goals and think about writing up.
    • Last Month: List of disabled accounts passed to support, uids discrepancies identified, starting processing db disappearances
    • This Month: finish dealing with db disappearances, speak to IS about uids, delete old machine principals. Alison and Toby to meet to discuss project completion

  • Webmark Reform
    • September: first functional forms
    • Last Month: Added postgres/JSON session storage (and kerberised connection pooling) for Flask/WSGI.
    • This Month: As Sep.

  • School Database Revamp: Phase 1B & 2B
    • September: Start running the new processes alongside the old.
    • Last Month: Started tidying up prototypical "export" code. Defined a tool chain around it. Did a first pass scrappy implementation to test principles. Seems good. Now complete tidying up and commit the "export" component. This will form the basis of the bootstrapping process. The "export" code (generates XSD schema) can now run at approximately two orders of magnitude faster (~3s as opposed to ~330s) than the existing schema build processes, however this is a bit forced so more likely to run at one order of magnitude faster (~8s). This will speed up even further though once the "legacy" compatibility mode is dropped and also once the whole 2g legacy data structures are dropped from the model (these effectively double the time to process), note that both of these are likely to happen prior to 2g decommissioning (effectively freezing out 2g land from the managed development side very soon).
    • This Month: Finish the "export" toolchain and commit. Start on tidying up the prototypical "import" code and toolchain. Continue work on the "bootstrap" process.

  • Windows 7 Upgrade
    • September:
    • Last Month:
    • This Month: Final report and submit for signoff

  • Lifecycle code design
    • September: Submit to gerrit. Continue testing. Write tool for querying/modifying lifecycle status. Document design. Think about putting into service once code has been reviewed and new accounts, etc. have settled down.
    • Last Month: All code and docs submitted for code review, further testing on real data
    • This Month: Code review; plan implementation

  • Investigate AFS on ECDF storage
    • September: Get my hands on ECDF kit.
    • Last Month: Only made one attempt to contact Orlando, he hasn't responded. Did a little reading in setting up a new cell from scratch.
    • This Month: Chase Orlando for access to ECDF.

  • Review of OpenLDAP DICE client configuration
    • September: Little progress due to other factors/work. Tests on client show no measurable differences in LDAP lookups in large multi-user directories.
    • Last Month:
    • This Month: As per action: 'Deploy a TLS configured client/server onto COs desktops for initial testing'

  • Replace CVS with SVN on www.inf
    • September: Finish testing on belter, check test SVN with users. Finalise conversion options, complete planning document.
    • Last Month: Some investigation of cvs2svn config conversion options, otherwise very little (took annual leave)
    • This Month: Finish testing on belter, check test SVN with users. Finalise conversion options, complete planning document.

  • Further AFS development and automation
    • September: I've hardly spent any of the 2 weeks allocated to this project, something like 1.5 days. But it has resulted in a useful change to our automated quota provision. This may be a convenient time to stall this process depending on what is prioritised for T3, and what requires my effort. So what I do will depend on what CSG and/or CEG think. If this project does remain on going, then I'll probably look at disconnecting our current relationship between where a RW volume goes and it's corresponding offsite RO volume.
    • Last Month: It was decided to not spend any more effort on this project for the moment, so write a report for the little work I'd done and request for this project to be stalled/signed off. However, I've managed to do neither.
    • This Month: Write report (or append to existing Project135FinalReport), submit for sign off/stall.
