  1. Minutes and matters arising

    • Minutes acceped
    • Color discussion and unbounded integers
      • Donald: ARGB vote since that's Java standard and OpenGL can convert to RGBA on hardware
      • Andrew: store it as 4 ints; clearer. Others seem to feel this is inefficient so should be one value.
      • XSD Int values: Everyone agrees to move the current huge numbers in the XSD to bounded integers.
      • @Andrew: will email everyone with what he feels the new values in the XSD should be.
    • Namespaces: goal is to have them as non-system types, with sensible UNIQUE constraints
  2. Release update

    • Last non-metadata bug: directory doesn't get picked up properly
    • SVS is waiting on block based importing.
      • Still need to fix the block based importing but this won't be soon (for svs).

    • @Update bioformats and do a new QA
    • cli/ldap: commit is ready. Need to evaluate whether it breaks the movies
    • Web: mainly bug fixing
    • export still outstanding
    • testing strategy? everyone does all tasks on each platform
      • probably...otherwise we don't know the scope of things
