Jeremy Huff is next, followed by Marc Johnson
|20-30 min||TCR Board Review|
Reminder: 27th January is the Deadline for acceptance of new modules by Technical Council
Marc Johnson : There were 4 evaluations done during the span of this evaluation window. There is no criteria that Marc is unsure about in this final iteration.
Craig McNally : The last we heard the module was incomplete. Particularly module endpoints not being connected to implementations.
Marc Johnson Marc Johnson: The endpoints described in the module descriptor have been connected to implementations.
Craig McNally Craig McNally: Are there still any issues with the accuracy of the personal information disclosure form.
Marc Johnson Marc Johnson: The team implemented changes to the personal data disclosure form based on feedback given during the evaluation processes. The criteria surrounding permission names may need to be clarified by the new module evaluation subgroup. We should also add criteria that ensures that the module implements the criteria it says it does.
The module was approved.
Marc Johnson Marc Johnson: We should avoid future reviews which are of the level of implementation that this module was in when the evaluation started.
Jeremy Huff: There are two areas open for discussion, 1) the addition of the "mod" prefix to avoid name collision with exiting permissions, 2) the presence of vertx dependencies that are not explicitly listed on the list of approved technologies. Jeremy is of the opinion that neither of these should prohibit Mod Settings from being approved.
There were no objections to approving the module despite either of these configurations.
Florian Gleixner: There is an ongoing discussion about centralized vs distributed configuration, should this discussion prohibit the approval of this module
Jeremy Huff: The evaluation team did not feel that this conversation was relevant to the technical approval of the module
Florian Gleixner: Should a note be attached to the review reflecting this
Jeremy Huff : Agrees to add the additional section for notes, and modify the criteria to show that the module has been accepted
Marc Johnson: The PC has approved the module, but not based on any sort of architectural
Ingolf Kuss: Isn't there a subgroup in place to talk about this configuration issue?
Craig McNally: Provided the historical context for the decision to allow Mike Taylor and his team to continue with their work
The module was approved
Technical Council Sub Groups Updates
Technical Goals and Objectives
Tod Olson : There was a meeting were feedback was given. There are some changes that Tod is intending to make in response to those
Jeremy Huff: Completed the term definitions section. Some copy editing remains before submitting the RFC
Jeremy Huff: Action Items have been created and assigned.
Jenn Colt: We have a revision to bring to the TC, and will address later in this meeting
|10 min||TC Charter Review|
Craig McNally: We will review the draft in TC and next step is to determine if this ready for the CC.
Mark Veksler: What is meant by the operational health of the reference environment
Craig McNally: This language was already in the charter
Marc Johnson: Didn't we ask the CC about this?
Craig McNally: We did, and were told that it is unknown what this term means
Jenn Colt: The CC said the TC should decide what that term means. Jen suggest that we accept this term as it is and define it over time.
Mark Veksler: Operational health might include the ability to release on time. Is this part of the TC's responsibility?
Craig McNally: This line is adding ambiguity, maybe it should be struck
Tod Olson: Suggests restoring the word "infrastructure"
Mark Veksler: If we say that the TC is responsible for maintaining the development environments, who is responsible for this?
Craig McNally: Maybe we should replace "maintain" with "provide oversight"
Marc Johnson: We did not want our language to be limited to the provision of opinions. We need to be mindful of how the language in these charters effect the ability of a council to act and make decisions. There was some discussion about who is responsibly to determine who is responsible for reference environments, and it was decided that it is the who makes such decisions CC.
Jenn Colt: We can maybe change operational to technical
Craig McNally: We should put this on the additional topics agenda for further discussion
RFC to review from Olamide: https://github.com/folio-org/rfcs/pull/4
