Maureen has imported the SourceForge Specify project into the new repository. It exists as a vendor branch and has been imported into the trunk of the FP-specify project as well. The current revision in SourceForge is 2. No customizations have been applied yet in our repository.
Zhimin has encountered some interesting problems with generated code and generics. He believes he has a solution.
Bob reports from Plazi meeting in Germany that there are ongoing discussions about incorporating the FP API into Golden Gate. The Golden Gate architecture allows for events to be published, for example, the user can annotate a section of text in the client and that annotation and section of text are saved in the Golden Gate database. When annotations are created they could be sent to the central server that would generate an event. We will be exploring how to connect those annotations to records in FP.
The Golden Gate server stores documents in TaxonX. We might be interested in being notified of new citations or names.
On March 22 James will meet with JStore to talk about FNA.
Bob met with Dave Thau about the Atlas of Living Australia. He's working on integrating their data with the ontology work of Roger Hyam. The Catalog of Life and the Hymenoptera name service program both are issuing URIs/LSIDs for taxon names. Apparently no one is currently working on resolving conflicts when multiple services provide LSIDs/URIs for the same name. GNA may be motivated to address this issue for names.
