VuFind Developers Call Minutes: November 11, 2014

Attending: Filipe Bento, Chris Delis, Chris Hallberg, Demian Katz


1. Development Updates

JIRA Tickets

  • VUFIND-760 - This ticket has been resolved; we now have a test to ensure the consistent formatting of all language files. This was made possible by the implementation of new tools to automatically normalize language files.
  • VUFIND-1038 - This ticket suggests making install.php smarter about not overwriting existing custom modules; Demian will work on it soon.
  • VUFIND-1039 - This ticket reports a Bootstrap3 bug which has been fixed.
  • VUFIND-1040 - This ticket suggests adding more permission options for user creation during MySQL database creation in the installer.
  • VUFIND-1041 - This ticket proposes a fancier interface for downloading exported data.
  • VUFIND-1042 - This ticket (now resolved) suggests a more accurate HTTP Content-type header for the OAI server component.

2. Development Planning


Demian has made further progress on the authorization pull request and it is likely nearing its final form. However, it cannot be merged until after we raise core requirements to PHP 5.4+.
