  3. Status Update

    • Server Delete (Josh):
      • One problem with unknown unknowns
      • Can't delete annotations on annotations right now (needs some thought)
      • Should be detailed as being something clients should take care of by unlinking
      • No other outstanding tasks
      • Jean-Marie: Decision for Rois was to delete those from another user.
      • Chris: doubly-linked objects have their links broken (at the moment)
        • Also needs to be clearly documented.
      • Documentation ticket:
      • If image in 2 datasets and delete a dataset, image is unlinked (not deleted) even if 'delete with contents'
      • Ola: Problem with delete speed. If just removing, paginated pages can become blank
        • First idea, don't refresh
        • Will reported that the empty page was confusing
        • Leaving deleted items on queued can also be confusing
        • Agreed to leave on list and document as a "Known limitation"
    • Chris will upgrade server today to get it up to latest changes
    • Most of the importer OME Sample files are working now
      • Metadata only files still fail
        • Andrew: should we give user a warning for these?
        • Chris: Not right now, but eventually.
      • OME files still need work to get them into the right places (plates go into datasets right now, for example)
  4. Email/Forum Review

    • Email:
      • What Catarina is trying to do should be fixed by 4.2.1
        • She won't be able to fix the current ones without going into the DB
        • Jason: Should send her an email with the details of the clear/delete changes coming
        • Will: Current parent delete pages needs to be made more friendly
    • Forums:
      • Disk Space: Josh will talk to 'ahar' about issue
    • QA Feedback
      • Jean-Marie looking into these
  5. Any Other Business

    • Jean-Marie: post-upgrade, no longer getting contents of email in email creation
    • Chris is making good progress on Windows setup
    • Everyone should go through their list of files for testing
