    1. #omero IRC channel on freenode - do we promote it for support/dev chat?

      • on it this lunchtime were Kenny, Josh, Mark, Roger, Douglas, Carnë
      • Kenny: valuable to give live interactive help, but then is lost because not logged
      • Josh: would be more useful once we can link to logs from tickets, etc.
        • Douglas: available as text would be good, Jabber logs cannot be grepped
      • Curtis: in Fiji / ImageJ channels not usually many people actively seeking help at once
      • Josh: also Google Helpouts (or something like that)
      • Josh: help via forums can be much less efficient / fast than a live chat
      • Jason: value to live support being provided in a more controlled way
      • Mark: useful in searching for technical help to run across IRC logs found through Google
    2. Apple Codesigning - Admin creds required to run 'non trusted' Insight

      • Kenny: UoD Apple Developer accounts available through LSC-IT, also comes with UoD application publishing/signing
        • Chris: we don’t have native code and are not conforming to Apple’s requirements, so cannot be in app store
        • Andrew: will try to find if it matters for webstart if certificate is from Apple
        • Chris: for Java applications will always have webstart dialog for accepting author
        • Jean-Marie: try it and see
