  1. Summary of last meeting (2014-11-05):
    1. Lightweight Talks
      • Local Forum Service - Alison
        • Progress update. Could get group members via Prometheus from roles (for the vast majority), rest can be added manually - but wait to evaluate take up before doing this.
          • [ACTION] Will use (only) EASE for authentication.
          • [ACTION] Will minimally customise theme (e.g. like teaching related pages on Drupal).
          • [ACTION] Will obtain an SSL certificate.
      • Services - Craig
        • Automounter.
          • [ACTION] Agreed maps to perpetuate and how and those to delete, will document what was agreed.
          • [ACTION] Maps will stay in LDAP as before but will implement an RFE trigger to propogate.
      • Replace CVS with SVN on www.inf - Roger
        • State of play, discussion and questions.
          • [ACTION] Agreed to use specific dedicated directories for db generated content. This will require a few things to be relocated or dropped.
          • [ACTION] Will have a discussion on best approach to use for shared "liveroot" space (multiple contributors, e.g. svn export, db generater, a.n.other).
    2. Actions (actions will be dropped from here if added to the relevant project home page)
      • Services Unit SL7 Desktop - Neil
        • [ACTION] investigate changing AFS component to use systemd unit config and starting daemon via systemd
        • [ACTION] inform MPU when port of a component to SL7 is complete (so they can make dice header available)
        • [ACTION] review components for whether now (port to SL7) is a good time to split into client and server instances

        • Done: inform MPU when port of a component to SL7 is complete (so they can make dice header available) - will update project page when done
        • [ACTION] review components for whether now (port to SL7) is a good time to split into client and server instances
      • RHEL7 based LCFG port

      • LCFG systemd component
        • [ACTION] document how to use systemd to replace existing component start method
      • RAT
