Update on actions from last meeting.

  • There are redundant fields in project descriptors. They should be simplified. Propose a simplified format. Should also look at IS basic project management templates and consider something that they might be able to use as well. Will try to start something this month. A project entry has been created for this.
  • Alastair will discuss automated ACL management for shared folders on staffmail with Chris Adie. [Action Alastair]

This should consider alternative options to using old Sun hardware - such as new Sun hardware (better energy and cheaper maintenance), latest Solaris, an Intel Windows PC (there is a version of Networker for this) or a virtualised solution. Also needs an effort estimate and milestones. Done
  • Wallet Implementation - The project description should include a first step which is an evaluation stage. This should consider whether Wallet is the correct and/or only suitable technology. Also needs an effort estimate and milestones. [Action Ian]
