Minutes & Outcomes

Communication & Organisation

  • Improving communication in the TC in order to drive things forward in a more efficient way
    • TC forms working groups that take care of specific topics and/or services
    • working groups use Slack for internal communication and decisions and meet or chat continuously as needed, but not less than once a month.
    • leads of the working groups report back to full the TC group
    • the TC group meet once every 4-6 weeks


  • Data Model Working Group (NRM) - high-level data model design
    • Lead: Markus
    • Members: James, Karen, Lisa, Falko, Anton
  • Services Working Groups (leads) - defining services/API's
    • Taxonomic (AAFC)
      • Lead: Karen C.
      • Members: Anton, Glen, Christian, Markus
    • SeqDB (AAFC)
      • Lead: Christian G.
      • Members: Matt, Ingimar, X Ottawa, Nazir, Satpal, Changhua
    • Collection Management (NRM)
      • Lead: Anton
      • Members: Karen, Glen, Christian
  • MVP (Minimum Viable Product) Working Group
    • Lead: Mikko
    • Membership: Karen, Falko, Markus/Lisa,
  • TC group
    • Chair: Falko


  • We need a glossary!
    • e.g. we speak of DINA modules but mean services
    • So, we might want to have a more specific terminology in the DINA context as this is essential for further communication & documents
    • some wiki pages need updates (e.g. Module_Notes)

Development & Roadmap

  • Agile development is preferred
  • Adopting NRM's approach of developing a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) in the first place
    • MVP 1 is defined as the first core version of the collection management service that covers the requirements for the mammal collection at NRM.
    • Institutions select pilot collections and define what features an MVP replacing current system(s) must include
    • Then compare MVP's in the MVP working group, to think how much work integrating them would require
  • Agreed on recording TC decisions publically on GitHub instead of DINA Redmine in order to keep the TC decisions closer to the code
    • still need to figure our whether this is only possible per repo or even across repos
  • Thus, former TC decisions can be closed in Redmine.

Action Items

  • for the next TC meeting (2nd week of April)
    • all working groups will draft scope document for their group
    • Slack channels will be opened by the working group leaders
    • MfN configures a mailing list system that could replace the existing lists and uses the domain dina-project.net

Miscellaneous

  • Agreed on strong preference on Postgres over MySQL or MariaDB in Collection Manager
  • An alternative system for video chat is https://appear.in/
    • this could be used instead of Google Hangouts or Adobe Connect
  • Next meeting probably in Ottawa in fall 2018
