Guys,

We will certainly be presenting general details of a number of our changes at our DSpace User Group presentation.   I think that we will want to be able to use the DSpace Developers Meeting as an opportunity to discuss these firstly with the developers at a lower level (both architecture and scheduling).

I agree it would be good to begin to construct some sort of schedule for contributions going into DSpace 3.0.  For instance, rather than saying theres "one feature freeze" on August 15th.  what if instead we pushed an agenda where each contributor could approximate when their contribution would be ready for commit.  Theses are even features of JIRA that we should be able to manage...

I think Hardy may have just implied this, but another topic that may be
worth bringing up at *some point* at OR12:

@mire obviously has a ton of cool features they'd like to get into 3.0.
They're listed on the 3.0 page:
https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACE/DSpace+Release+3.0+Notes

Some of these cool features involve some larger DB / architectural
changes, especially:

* Item Level Versioning (includes External Identifier Support):
https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACE/Item+Versioning+Support
* "Metadata on all Objects" pull request:
https://github.com/DSpace/DSpace/pull/12

Obviously, it'd be good to start to get to a decision around these
larger contributions sooner rather than later (so we have plenty of time
to stabilize as needed). So, this may mean a need to start to "dig
deeper" into the exact architectural changes.

If that decision/deeper dig doesn't come at OR12, that's perfectly OK
(there's only so much time available at OR12). But, it might be worth at
least touching on this topic, and coming to an agreement around whether
we need to schedule a "special topic meeting" (perhaps via Skype) where
Mark Diggory/@mire can walk us through the architectural changes, etc.
But, if you all can arrive at a decision at OR12, that's also perfectly
welcome!

I just want to make sure we start to push these larger projects along
and try to arrive at a decision soon. Obviously we don't want to wait
till August for everything. :)
