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. Project Timelines (2-3 minutes each)

    1. Spaces

      1. Files/Formats/OME Files (Sebastien)
        • Ramping up on 5.6.0 including some work on the ImageJ plugin
        • Upcoming discussions on the codec decoupling
        • Sphinx style (see website below) is now applied to model & Bio-Formats ( & OMERO) documentation.
      2. Metadata (Josh)
        • prod42 testing & going live
          • still bugs. Trying to prevent server from timeouts. Preloading
          • should have a round of testing in the next few days
          • still plates with data-level issues (reader?)
          • still deciding whether we are confident with the code (IDR on OMERO 5.3). No strong concerns about perform
        • prod43 general plan.
          • new board (IDR 0.4.3). Mostly working on existing metadata in the system. Adding ROIs when we have them
          • unclear whether new BBBC dataset will be in
          • try to release in the next 3 weeks
          • datasets (sysgro, mitocheck, tara, rohban, secretion). Example scripts for parsing ROIs.
      3. OMERO 5.4.0
        • Discussing cards this Thursday morning, especially Inbox. Need to get in good shape for final push with Jean-Marie and Will back next month. If not already noted then please do note or prepare to discuss any cards where:
          • it's clear it should be in 5.4.0 or some prior milestone
          • it's clear it can be pushed beyond 5.4.0 and is unlikely not to be
          • it's not clear what it's about or who would do what, when.
        • Mark: now adjusting CLI plugins' is-admin checks for restricted admins while Dom looks at more client fixes
        • Mark: plan to cut m2 at end of this week
        • Dom working on a few client issues
        • Josh: biggest risk?
          • Some web TODOs which aren’t a big problem but will be starting quite late.
          • Performance may still be an issue, but looks largely ok. (Primarily during adding new users & groups)
            • trying to merge other (read-only) work from IDR?
            • IDR included first read-only branch. Testing difficult at best, requires knowledge about the deployment. Would not be something one would rebase in its current state.
          • Infrastructure work (bring CI to CentOS 7)
            • Simon: PG version? targeting 9.4 as minimum.
      4. Outreach
        • Cytohack - email summary. Jason: computational resources were largely people’s laptops. Few people apart from us showed up with infrastructure.
        • Introduction about IDR/OME less about deep learning than with general image processing
        • Abstracts to BigData meetings in Sep/Oct sending tomorrow
        • QBI/Göttingen - Jan 2017- overlap with UK MMC meeting where Jason presents. Need volunteer.
        • Not doing full IDR workshop at Bangalore
        • NEUBIAS Goteborg end of September: Josh attending
    2. Other releases/upgrades:

      1. Figure & iViewer
        • Compatibility testing with 5.4.0. One problem where light admin is exporting figure without right data permissions
        • Minor issues in iViewer like why do I need WRITE when deleting a ROI.
        • Balaji: representativity of scenario where light admins are working on figures as they are doing things for others. Petr: crash happens when working on other’s data.
      2. new website (Seb/Liza)
        • Approaching content/style freeze.
        • Deployment work is underway. No longer hosted on GitHub.
        • Top-level menu is “News” not “Community” but omits “/news/” from URLs.

        • Old web page is available at
        • Click testing as soon as Friday.
