With the opsim review upon us we will have short meeting this Friday to discuss status and plans after the review:
  • update on software standardization study
    • Gregory Dubois-Felsmann is heading up a study on the use of software and the standardization of that software across the project. He will be creating a small group representing different aspects of the project. Richard (for camera), John, Simon and Srini expressed interest in the process. Surveys of how people use software will be sent out and we need to be responsive to this
  • update on the next set of Atlasssian tools and plans ahead
    • JIRA, agile, confluence all seem to be going well. Atlassian's Answers may be rolled out as a project version of stackoverflow. Simon - these questions and answers need to be public. We plan to make Simulations confluence pages public (with the exception of dry run presentations). If there is are other pages that need to remain private send ajc an email. 
    • is up and we will be looking at how it can be integrated with git (from an external perspective it should be transparent and will provide a github-like code review and pull request capability)
  • details for the opsim review next week
    • Finalizing presentations and logistics on Monday. Meeting is on Tuesday and Wednesday starting 8.30am and 9.00am (MST) respectively. Presentations will go public Monday and are in collection 3107. There will be gotomeeting for the review.
