  1. Last Meeting's Minutes: approved

  2. Matters Arising

    • Brian: Chris Woods has been contacted. Will see if we can add an option for him
    • Jean-Marie: ticket for micro-beam manipulation done.
    • Will: updated scenarios, Jean-Marie: assigned tickets.
    • Josh: Seems to be working, but will need retested
      • Need to retry with newer Insight version
      • There are still tricky situations related to Hierarchy+Searches
  3. Sprint status

    • Please don't stay logged into devteam (Brian/Donald)
      • Jean-Marie: We assume you have read something if you are in devteam
      • Andrew: forget to open it in the morning.
    • Scenarios:
      • Everyone has gone through except Ola (sick) and Will (not available right now)
      • Delete front: All SHOULD BE assigned, please check what you have and accept assignment
      • Some new tickets, mostly Web-related (permissions). Some general web issues.
      • Some issues were not handled from 4 months ago.
      • Some UI issues. Will need to look at old tickets for UI that need to be addressed.
      • A lif issue from lab in Germany (coming to Jean-Marie).
    • Jean-Marie: In a collaborateive RW group, we still have Delete issues
      • Needs testing and workflow
      • Suggest we turn this off (until fully tested) so can't add images to shared container
      • Josh: but the data may already be in this state.
      • Jean-Marie: uncomfortable releasing without knowing for sure!
      • Andrew: Is this a case that's easy to identify?
      • Josh: We need to verify the scope of this issue (might only affect PIs?)
      • Jean-Marie: Will write a test for this, but we should still stop this delete behavior
      • Donald: We should remove the ability to link "another person's" dataset to "my"s projects
      • Jean-Marie: If we disable deleting collaborative items we will have to retest everything
      • Josh: Need to determine scope, might be solved with warning message, may need to disable PI deletes, etc.
      • Donald: we have no user-specific rollback functionality, so one user
      • Josh: we're not sure of that
    • Need to have a discussion about the web
      • Need to prioritize 'must do' tickets for this release
      • will need to redo the scenarios.
    • Scenarios 9 = Andrew, 18 = Donald
    • Should we move to iteration 18 and find 'must dos'?
      • no.2678 (VM machine) needs review and cleanup (Donald)
      • Importer tickets need cleanup/remove duplicates (Brian)
      • Web tickets need cleanup with Ola back (Ola)
    • SPIM
      • Andrew providing another version?
      • got reply saying G. will need some days
    • FLIM
      • Donald needs to get this out the door
    • Conclusion: Still question on when this will be release candidate!
  4. Emails/Forums/QA:

    • Ruben: Writing HCS plates one plane / tiff file. Poor format for OME-TIFF
      • Andrew: Perhaps just an ome-metadata file in the same directory and additional tiffs?
      • Andrew: Will talk to Ruben about possibilities
      • Melissa: Would be nice to have ome-reference file (as suggested above)
    • Jerome: (Public facing server)
      • Josh: need ticket (Jean-Marie: Already exists)
      • Making some changes to support Jerome's ideas not impossible
      • Josh will respond to him about possibilties
    • Caterina:
      • We have a place (use-cases directory?) for her suggestions
      • Andrew will hunt down a place for this
  5. Any other items?

    • Brian Jones: Some interest in batch export. Where are we?
      • Jean-Marie: Should be able to do that more efficiency now
      • Josh: Best solution for this might be zip file with multiple ome-tiffs
      • Jean-Marie: large exports can be harsh on the server, need to look at optimizations
  6. Actions

    • Jean-Marie: Follow up with Germany team re: LIF
