Kepler Release Conference Call

May 4, 2009


Jones, Berkley, Welker, Brooks, Barseghian, Crawl, Wang, Riddle, Leinfelder

Agenda and Notes

1) Status updates and Estimate of task completion timeline
  -- Berkley
    -- mostly working on installer; working on 3 paltforms; DLLs in proper dirs
    -- working on getting R install working again (end of day...)
    -- need volunteers to test the installer
    -- on track for time except possibly for documentation

  -- Welker
    -- working on refactoring the build; improving the workflow tests
    -- stopped using junit ant task, using our own unit test task now
    -- will start on prototyping of mudule renaming for publication soon
    -- looking good on timing for release

  -- Brooks
    -- merge exp files; merged, but weird highlighting problems
    -- ant report overrides is failing with class cast exception (David will fix -- fixed)

  -- Barseghian
    -- his bugs are coming along. June deadline ok
    -- fixed the JLabel truncation issues, and search button
    -- come across a few more problems, with new bugs -- associated with to actor library tree -- all are tractable
    -- bigger taks is to create WF run object to encapsulate provenance
    -- tracking bug to be sure kepler 2.0 has what's needed for modules to build in

  -- Wang
    -- globus actors into new module, trying for 2.0, bug 4040

  -- Crawl
    -- DBConnection removed, so now compiles and runs with Java 1.6!
    -- add 1.6 target to NMI build and have it test there

  -- Leinfelder
    -- event module: took event model from Morpho, using as base for tab views to communicate with each other
      -- evaluated Ptolemy event model, but it was limited to workflows
      -- need to extend some TabPane and ViewPane interfaces for clearer comm mechanism, more formal
      -- will produce a design diagram
    -- R module is its own module now; can be released on independent schedule
      -- will ship R, just not sure if it will use JRI yet
      -- try to include R dist in R actor module or its own module, rather than the core installer
        -- this allows us to sync version dependencies between RExpression, JRI, and R

3) Documentation
  -- probably a large job; how can we accomplish it?
  -- request to LT to find way to pay Kirsten Menger-Anderson for updates to the docs
  -- chad will generate list

4) will announce next release to the kepler-dev list, and include the Build and Release team
