2010-06-22 Tuesday Meeting



Remember: Agenda must be complete (with estimated times) on the day before the meeting. Any additions after that must go at the bottom (AOCB)

  1. Accepting minutes from last meeting

  2. Apologies

    • Andrew: I am off at the dentist having a tooth fixed.
  3. Matters Arising (<10 mins)

    • Andrew starts a TODO list/schedule (jul1-dec15) of methodologies (plone) and pass off to Jason
      • Update: work in progress
  4. Status of release (45 mins)

    • DB Upgrade: open questions include wellsample.timepoint, argb, infinity, original_metadata.txt, format enum, old annotations, acquisition event logs
  5. AOCB (<5 mins)

    • OME-XML Trac permissions (Melissa)


  • Minutes / Matters
    • No issues with previous minutes.
    • Andrew is still working on schedule of model changes for rest of the year.
    • Google docs ("4.2+ Priority List") also tries to get some of the upcoming tasks on the table.
      • Hard to define the weighting factors, and needs to be consensus.
      • Not just about what will be given back in terms of code, but also funding, etc.
    • Jean-Marie travelling around the 5th of July, Chris on 10th, Will the 14th.
    • General plan is to freeze any new features and put everything into getting the release out the door.
    • Added suggestion of "Documentation" to "4.2+ Priority List". This and other tasks like HUDSON_GREEN may be a good task for the summer. Delete is another issue which we will need to quickly tackle.
  • Release status
    • Importer: seems generally stable, but need more work on XSLT/XML translation
    • DB Upgrade:
      • Generally, the upgrade script is applying, but still with some losses (screen acquisitions without well samples are currently lost, etc.)
      • wellsample.timepoint -> index
      • argb: unsigned ints in signed ints combines hexs+float in sql (endianness?)
      • infinity: doesn't need to be handled
      • original_metadata.txt: leave ns, whatever path is fine, just unify all code
      • format: moving all to mimetype even if kludgy
      • annotations: stop upgrade on delete
      • event logs: duplicating? renaming? also need to kick off new indexing.


  • NDIM meeting next Tuesday; also discuss upcoming releases
  • Figure out postgres endiandness, and generally test if that's an issue
  • Upgrade Will's code to use the new original_metadata.txt files


  • Need to unify plate.cols (plate.columns)
  • Add ARGB support in API (array-based methods)
