2. Development Planning

Authorization

Demian has finished adjusting all existing authorization functionality in VuFind to use the new standard mechanism in pull request #209. This will likely be merged to master as soon as we raise the PHP version requirements to 5.4 (soon). Input on permission naming, configuration layout, etc., is still welcome.

Bootstrap(2) Theme Deprecation

The old bootstrap and bootprint themes have been removed in favor of the newer bootstrap3/bootprint3 themes. A legacy/bootstrap branch has been established to allow further development of the legacy themes if there turns out to be a need for this.

Call Number Normalization

Tod has recently posted some patches on the solrmarc-tech list. Anna and Tod are going to coordinate finishing up the work.

3. Next Call Date?

The next call is very close to the Christmas holiday. We discussed whether it was worth holding, given that many people may be on vacation. It was decided to skip 12/23 and have the next call on 1/6.

4. Other Topics?

None this week.

Next Call

The next call will be Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at 10am Eastern Standard Time (15:00 GMT).
