OpenMI 1.4 release
OpenMI version 2.0
Agenda & Minutes / Issues:
1. Minutes from last meeting
The minutes were accepted.
2. Use cases
We worked on new use cases for OpenMI 2. See the OpenMI WIKI
3. Feature requests
From Jan: I have activated the feature request facility on source forge again. I think that this a more practical way for handling these requests rather that the HTML list. I made some categories: OpenMI.Standard, Oatc.OpenMI.Sdk, Oatc.OpenMI.GUI, Oatc.OpenMI.Tools, Oatc.OpenMI.Examples, and documentation. And I made some groups: 220.127.116.11 Release, 18.104.22.168 Release, 22.214.171.124 Release, Considered, Rejected, and Don't use. The latter is there simply because it is not possible to remove existing groups (we can rename it to something else when we need a new group). The main idea is to categorize items after which package/namespace these belongs to and to groups these after which release they are accepted to be implemented for. Some items may also be grouped as rejected or considered.
I hope that the meeting will agree with this approach. In this case:
We need to review the requests and assign implementation of these to someone.
We also need to review the request listed on : http://www.lictek.dk/openmi/ and decide which should be moved to source forge features request list and which simply should be removed.
We reviewed the tasks and change request. We assigned responsible persons and updated the deadlines. There is still many change requests in the change request forum and on http://www.LicTek.dk/OpenMI. We will take care of these later.
4. OpenMI 126.96.36.199 release
General status for OpenMI 1.4 release.
See also OpenMI 188.8.131.52 task on source forge
We updated the release plan. See updated release plan Also various task on SourceForge.net were updated.
5. OpenMI 2.0 architecture
OpenMI version 2.0 roadmap
We need to make an updated version 2 roadmap.
We worked on the use cases. Since everyone at the moment is busy with the 184.108.40.206 release not changes to the interfaces was made.
6. OpenMI Java and OpenMI .net synchronization
The new OpenMI standard definition: Personally I am not in favor of making the standard language (implementation) specific. However, looking forward, how will this 1.4 version be updated / modified so that the 2.0 version includes both a .NET and a Java implementation? (Rob)
We decided to include Java in the standard. So there will be both OpenMI.Standard 220.127.116.11 Java and OpenMI.Standard 18.104.22.168 .Net
7. Miscellaneous issues
Meeting plan for 2008
From Jan: We should make a list with new dates for OATC meeting for 2008. My suggestion is to make the meeting less frequent (e.g. use a two months interval rather than a six weeks interval.) Also I think we should schedule more frequent web conferences (e.g. weekly or every second week). See proposed dates
The dates on the proposed meeting plan were accepted.
8. Tasks and unresolved issues
Moved to source forge
From Jan: I was getting a bit frustrated over managing all the tasks and unresolved issues. I have therefore moved these to https://sourceforge.net/projects/openmi/. Hope that this helps.
We need to review these tasks and update status for these.
The new approach with taking more advantage of the SourceForge feature were reviewed and accepted as the way to do it from now on.
