  1. Accepting minutes from last meeting

    • Done
  2. Glencoe Update (10 min)

    • Andreas: Surveymonkey embedded
    • Chris: Carlos & Liza working on data viewer (Feb 18th)
    • Chris: Tomogram releases in DB, Will’s ROI work deployable
    • Josh: Surveymonkey, drop in vanilla OMERO or too custom?
    • e.g. tell Oxford copy this and drop it in.
    • Andreas: have to denote special places, add divs and javascript
    • One off, one way you drop javascript and would include on any page.
  3. FS Status Update (25 min)

    • Josh: Last major refactor, removed importer docs
    • Basic Data-In working. API & model largely stable. Python directory upload available.
    • Various remaining pre-RC issues
      • Josh: need ticketing / stories creating
    • Time to start shaking out bugs
      • Josh: Delete won’t work as expected. While testing import then we’ll address delete and higher level functions.
      • Jean-Marie preparing another version of Roger's FS file format list to go through.
      • Jean-Marie: check rendering problems and refer to scenarios
      • Josh: setID issues, memory issues, server performance issues
      • Some formats specified by Jason:
        • HCS (flex and ?)
        • svs, ndpi, leica, ims (slide scan examples from QBI)
        • dv (and a few others with very large timelapse)
        • OME-TIFF
      • Josh: Test switching between gretzky, bp, etc.
      • Roger: Import of ROIs, file with ROIs should it be handled as part of FS import,
        • Josh: uploaded, verify ROIs copied, during server side import should be created in the database.
          • If ROIs before FS should be there now.
        • Roger: Zeiss-TIDD and Zeiss-ZVI ROIs should work, not currently.
      • Josh: cli-import testing, apart from times, log statements should be missing as the processes are server side, notification for save to db is in server log (needs fixing). SVS Parsing, upload, finish, nothing on client
  4. PR feedback (10-15 min)

    • Comment from Jason about PR burden
      • Josh: unknown no of PRs you have to deal with, comments?
      • Andrew: some are quick but having to compile new server eats up time
      • Jean-Marie: sometimes open early before it’s really ready
      • Andrew: useful comments keep coming and PRs drag out.
      • Josh: PRs not trac-able. Add column on whiteboard?
    • Primary feedback was the difficulty of scheduling/planning work; otherwise beneficial.
      • Possible next step: agilo upgrade even with Kanban support.
      • NB (Chris): Similarly, mantis UI couldn’t be worse. trello board instead / linked?
    • Andrew: Add column between InProgress & backlog, blocked
