Notes

FilteredPush Team Meeting 2012 Nov 28

Present: Jim, James, Heather, Paul, Bob, David, Tianhong, Bertram, Sven, Maureen

  • Annotations
    • Progress on: Rewriting examples/rules from AO/AOD to OA

Bob: Most of the examples have been rewritten for OA. David has written java application for testing. Adding commentary to the rules. Two versions of rules: plain text in Wiki, Sparql ruleles, bringing these into conformance with each other. David refactored annotation parsing from the annotation processor into a component - thus can test parsing on annotation generation - only one piece of code that tests annotations against configured rules for system.

David: Made annotation processor more configurable in the process.

Bob: Issue that turned out to be hardest to find was errors in name space declarations - prefixes were the same, but definitions of name spaces were different - hardest to figure out why validation failed.

  • Increasing Burn Rate

Bob: Focus on engineering might be desirable.

Jim: Put some numbers on the propoposals in the document. Is this list exahustive?

Maureen: End user documentation would be good. Java EE advice.

TODO: examine document, refine proposed work/who does it, suggest priorities, suggest timelines/costs.

  • ApplePie
    • What Constitutes ApplePie

James: Two things: What is ApplePie (functionally, components), then who would be involved: Express to them what they would get by being members of the network. Then, timelines - version 1 at time x, more functionality added over time... Players may be able to contribute resources (and may have challenges that we haven't accounted for).

TODO: Revise ApplePie document on wiki as a sales document.

    • NEVP DigitizationApparatus to Symbiota ingest mapping draft.

David and Maureen have looked at, don't see any evident issues.

    • Administrative use case questions

Maureen to move to wiki, then email for commentary.

Bob: Time to do an update of the SemanticMediaWiki deployment on etaxonomy.org. Targeting week between christmas and new years.

  • BioVel project - services for names cleanup, interest in Kepler.

James: From discussions at TDWG, europeans under BioVEL (e-laborories) interested in workflows, mentioning Kepler by name - using services in workflows. First meeting in a couple of weeks.

  • Embedded Kepler
    • Progress on embedded QC job

Tianhong: Succeeded in running a Kepler workflow remotely on the server. Working on wrapping in Java bean. Having a problem getting the existing Kuration workflow example to run - configuration in example may be incorrect. Having problems getting a working FilteredPush/Eclipse environment working locally for testing/development

David: Available for working through issues with deployment. Email/google hangout.

  • Drivers (API documentation, MCZbase).

Development environment description has gone to Brendan. Working on scheduling meeting with him (Paul, Maureen, Brendan).

  • Progress on pubsubhubub implementation test.

Maureen: Lucene indexes set up for most of the DarwinCore types. Populated by hand. Next bit to connect harvester to indexer replacing manual process.

Bob: Is this work applicable to the triple store also?

Maureen: Yes, in system, triple store will hold triples, index will hold strings.

Bob: Might be valuable to index concepts in OA.

Discussion: OA itself just object properties, but examples have data properties hung off these, worth examining the example annotations for strings targets.

Maureen: Search relations in triple store, search strings in index.

Bob: Might be worth including OA core.

Non-Tech

  • Annotating Names

Interplay with ETC.

Very relevant discussion about TCS and GNUB on TDWG-content right now.

James: Interplay with people in Driad as well.

  • Annotations
    • Annotation MS
    • Task Group for Applicability Statement on OA

Both still in Paul's court.

  • Collaborations
    • Specify/Symbiota
    • SCAN TCN
    • NEVP TCN
  • Upcoming Meetings:

Tech call this friday, 2PM eastern.

General call next wednesday, Noon eastern as usual, Bob, James, Paul traveling.

Tech call next friday, 2PM eastern, Bob, Paul may be available from AZ.
