1. Minutes of last meeting

These were accepted after a correction from Toby concerning the specific LDAP project that had been delayed.

2. Matters Arising

  • All to ensure that the date field for projects is used correctly and up to date.

The majority had done this. George had not added milestones to four of the projects because they were all stalled for lack of effort. These were discussed under the next agenda item.

  • Neil/George to discuss requirements for lightweight accounts and decide if this needs a separate project.

They had not yet discussed this; George felt that the onus was on Neil to raise the issue with him. [Action Neil and George]

All other actions from the last meeting have been completed.

3. Approved Projects

  • Inventory System - The next milestone (requirements capture) was late - proposed date was 2006-12-19. Some work on this has been done during December and January but Ken still needed to talk to Alastair and Sheila. It was agreed to postpone this milestone till the date of the next meeting. [Action Ken]

  • Improved LCFG Distribution - The next milestone (5.0) was late - proposed date was 2007-02-01. Stephen explained that the addition of support for MacOSX and Solaris packages was dependent on other projects to do with rationalising the LCFG headers for these two architectures and both were taking more time than originally anticipated. Stephen will adjust the dates of this and subsequent milestones where necessary. [Action Stephen]

It was agreed that once a milestone proposed date was set it should only be adjusted after discussion/agreement at the Development Meeting.

It was also agreed that if a project was stalled then this fact should be brought to the attention of the Development Meeting and then its stage should be changed to 3s.Stalled (which stage will be created by Ken shortly). [Action Ken]

A request was made for a modification to the development meeting software; a link to the milestones of the project in question should be added to the web page showing a milestone. [Action Ken]

4. New project proposals

  • Inf FC6 desktop - This project was accepted and will move straight into stage 3.Implementation.

5. Technical presentation and discussion of projects

6. AOB

The next meeting will be on March 7th in the non-standard venue of JCMB 2509.
