Notes

Filtered Push Team Meeting 2012 Jan 18

Present: Bertram, Lei, James, Jim, Maureen, Paul, Bob, David

Agenda:

  • NSF Workshop RFP

Bob: Nothing further. Working on MS. Just need to merge in comments from James and Jim. James last week agreed that Jim's suggestions are more in line with the call, more about annotations less about current project.

Jim: Procedure

Bob: Still an informal interchange, just an informal 2 pager.

  • Contact from BGMB

Maureen: Waiting for response.

Jim: Background?

Paul:

Maureen: What is the procedure for showing things to people, and what do we want to show them?

James: Depends on what they want to see at what level?

Maureen: Prototype takes a lot of work to get running.

Paul: Prototype demo is still up at: http://firuta.huh.harvard.edu:8080/JSF2FilteredPush

Bob: If seen before, any need to show again, no change.

Jim: Very important point about representing progress. We should try to do things that don't require much effort on our part diverting away from effort of getting things done. Point people to roadmap, along with links to demonstrations/existing links. Put up links to expected timeline for release of new features.

James: Good to be more explicit about timelines. What Walter is probably interested in is the engine (and AO), and wants to know how what we are doing could interact with the Edit infrastructure. He probably needs to direct the interaction with his programmers.

Jim: We should provide realistic dates and stick with them.

James: Sounds exactly right. We have told them that we plan on a real target for something different to show at SPNHC.

Maureen: What do we show off between now and then:

James: What Jim was saying, a public roadmap.


  • Mapper

Maureen: Gave Demo of test harness at: http://firuta.huh.harvard.edu:8080/fp-webclient/

Jim: Very Exciting.

Maureen: When/Where to develop public roadmap?

Discussion: As section on Roadmap page. http://etaxonomy.org/mw/Roadmap

Bob: Anything from Tuscon for FP, other than in last week's ?

  • Pending Tech Issues
    • Generation of annotations from Specify determinations (mid to late Jan?)
    • FilteredPush Requirements Report_on_FP_Requirements
    • API For Query and Cluster Finding
    • Tech group needs to make a decision on or set a date for decision for the query language for pub-sub for Apple Pie.
    • Tech group needs to make a decision on or set a date for decision for the domain objects supported for Apple Pie.
    • Tech group needs to decide on or set a date for decision for the scope, composition, and implementation of the "global cache."
  • BL -- FYI: I contacted folks from the local Entomology Museum (Bohart) which is literally below the DB lab where I'm sitting now. I will have an undergrad and grad student working on a small project to help with their databases. Some of the FP-issues are clearly visible with the insects people, too :) Alas, they have even more basic needs (data spread around in Foxpro databases, Access, Spreadsheets .. you name it..). We're hoping to help a little bit by adding yet another database to the mix. I noticed that the Essig Museum in Berkeley has nice DB support.
