In Attendance

  • Regrets: Marc, Sonya
  • Present: Alec, Alex, Clinton, Dulip, James

Quick Updates

  • Question Every Month
    • What have you been working on lately?
      • Clinton - Getting back into OJS coding, upgrading plugins from 2.x to 3.x. Preparing proposal for Summer 2019 Sprint. Q from collaborator: "What about student groups of some sort that might have people who would like to participate? If you have a small paragraph about the technical skills involved in doing this sprint, perhaps we could reach out to some of the existing groups on campus." A from me: probably not viable.
      • Dulip : OJS3 Lens Plugin
      • Alex - OJS3 as Preprint server. Still having issues with CrossRef plugin. CrossRef has a specific schema for assigning DOI for preprints so perhaps the OJS plugin needs update? Any help is welcome. Currently working on a list of minimum features to be removed and added to OJS3 in order for it to work as preprint server.
  • Question of the Month

Old Business

Release Progress

  • 3.2 still awaiting versioning merge (currently undergoing porting to OMP)
    • also rewrite of setup forms to use API in the application and reduce usage of our old JS framework in favour of Vue.js; stats updates; Crossref updates.
  • OJS/OMP 3.1.1-4 released (possibly one more build before 3.2)

Translation

  • See sprint report (forthcoming)

Documentation

UI/UX

  • Kevin will likely be handing off the management of this group as part of Brian's retirement; details to come.

Other topics

  • CLA feedback
    • One comment here: https://github.com/pkp/ojs/pull/2139
    • Institutional vs. individual
      • It's possible for us to go in and add emails to indicate having signed.
    • Plugins?
    • Can't ever revise CLAs without having to have everyone re-sign.
    • some concern that users have to sign a legal document in a language they might not be familiar with.
    • Some concern (incorrect) that we're getting ready for some sort of license change.

Next Meeting

November 15, 2018: 11am Pacific (participants' DST participation should be re-sync'd)
