These slides were prepared as part of the Open Repositories 2012 DuraSpace Plenary. They describe the DSpace RoadMap for 2012. However, the talk itself was presented by Valorie Hollister of DuraSpace (as I was unable to attend the conference).

  • NOTE: This is just the “active” committers team. The 9 Emeritus Committers (most of which had 5+ years of service to DSpace) are not listed. Fun Facts: 4 committers added in the last year 45% of our Committers are newer (< 3 years) to the team. At the same time, 40% of our Committers have also been helping for 5+ years This shows great balance on our team!
  • Configurable Reviewer Workflow will be discussed in DSUG Technical Strand #1 (Fri @ 9am): “ Tutorial on configuration and usage of DSpace Configurable Workflow” by Bram De Schouwer, Lieven Doogmans A use case for SWORDv2 will be talked about in DSUG Session #1 (Thurs @ 4pm): - “ SWORDv2 solution for Norwegian master's thesis submission portal” by Kristian Roberto Salcedo, Richard Jones Curation Tasks will be discussed in DSUG Managers Strand #2 (Fri @ 11am): - “ Curation Tasks for Repository Managers : Staying in the Light and have a Dark Side” by Yanan Zhao, Kim Shepherd, Yin Yin Latt, S. Leonie Hayes
  • Major releases include new features and potentially architectural or database changes. There will always be a migration/upgrade path from the last major release to the next one. Minor release *just* include bug fixes. (NO new features or architectural/database changes)
  • Anyone can help out / follow along with 3.0 release planning, etc. by joining the ‘dspace-release’ listserv.
  • The @mire features will be discussed during this talk in DSUG Session#1 (Thurs, July 12 @ 4pm) - “Contributions for DSpace 3.0”
  • “ DSpace 2.0” was a 2009 prototype that helped us to envision what DSpace could become. Some of its code has already been adopted into out-of-the-box DSpace, and other code has been essentially abandoned and is not used. “ DSpace with Fedora Inside” is still in the brainstorming stages. (NOTE: we may either want to write in a better explanation here, or refer back to whatever Jonathan says in his talk during the DuraSpace plenary)

Meet the Committers! • Andrea Bollini • Ben Bosman • Peter Dietz • Mark Diggory • Tim Donohue • Sands Fish • Keith Gilbertson • Richard Jones • Claudia Jürgen • Ivan Masár (2012) • Scott Phillips • Hardy Pottinger (2011) • Richard Rodgers • Andrea Schweer (2011) • Kim Shepherd • Robin Taylor • Graham Triggs • Jeff Trimble • Kevin Van de Velde (2011) • Mark Wood Key: 5+ Years, 3-5 Years (as of July 2012)
    3. 3. 2011-12 Accomplishments • 1.8.x Releases • Simplified Release Numbering Scheme: [major].[minor] (e.g. 3.0) • Code migration to GitHub • First “Developers Virtual Summit” • “dspace-replicate” Add-On (keep?) – Easier backups/restores (incl. DuraCloud)
    4. 4. 1.8.x Releases • Release Coordinator: Robin Taylor – 1.8.2 on February 24 • Major New Features include: – Configurable Reviewer Workflow – SWORD Client & SWORDv2 support – Enhanced RSS feeds (iTunesU) • Many more improvements – Reorder bitstreams, split up dspace.cfg, bulk withdraw/reinstate, more curation tasks, etc.
    5. 5. New Release Numbering • Format: [major].[minor] (e.g. 3.0) – Every Oct/Nov = new major release – Minor releases will just fix bugs, and be released only as necessary • For example: – 3.0 in Oct/Nov 2012 • Bug fix releases to 3.0 will be numbered 3.1, 3.2, etc. and released as needed. – 4.0 in Oct/Nov 2013 – 5.0 in Oct/Nov 2014, etc.
    6. 6. • 3.0 Release Team: – Sands Fish (MIT) [Team Leader] – Hardy Pottinger (U of Missouri) – Kim Shepherd (U of Auckland) – Robin Taylor (EDINA, U of Edinburgh) • New ‘dspace-release’ public listserv – For administrative / planning activities 3.0 Release – Oct/Nov 2012 Want to learn how DSpace releases happen? Join ‘dspace-release’ mailing list
    7. 7. 3.0 Possible Features • Possible Major New Features: – Item Versioning? (@mire & Dryad) – Advanced Embargos? (@mire & Michigan) – Metadata support for Communities/Collections? (@mire) – Support for External Identifiers (DOIs, etc.)? (@mire & Dryad) • More possible features on 3.0 page: https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACE/DSpace+Release+3.0+Notes WARNING: No features are definite until Feature Freeze in mid-August
    8. 8. 3.0 Release Clarifications • 3.0 will: – Be the next major release after 1.8.x – Offer a direct upgrade path from 1.8.x – Still have a similar architecture to 1.8.x – Offer many new exciting features! 3.0 Release has no relation to either “DSpace 2.0” or “DSpace with Fedora Inside”
    9. 9. Code Migration to GitHub “GitHub is like Wikipedia for programmers… except you’re working with source code instead of encyclopedia data” (Chris Wanstrath, GitHub CEO)
    10. 10. Code Migration to GitHub • What does that mean? – Anyone can copy code, view old versions, see what changed from Web – Anyone can modify the code (in their acct) & easily submit changes back – Collaborative tools to allow anyone to comment on any code change • Development is more open / visible • All developers can take an active role & share innovations amongst themselves
    11. 11. Get Involved! • DCAT Meetings – [details here] • DSpace Developer Meetings – Weds @ 20:00 UTC in #duraspace IRC • DSpace “Office Hours” (with Tim) – Weds @ 17:00-20:00 UTC in #duraspace • Help out / get help on Mailing Lists! – dspace-general, dspace-tech, dspace-devel
