There were no comments on the proposed agenda or minutes from the previous meeting.

Open GitHub issues for discussion

Issues discussed:

The group agreed on the following points:

  • The issues for implementation of agreed changes should be opened in the relevant repository (ATS or ETS)
  • Agreed changes will be implemented in a dedicated branch named after the originating issue (e.g. metadata-130), a reviewer from the group will be assigned and after a positive review a pull request to the master branch will be created.
  • In the next meeting, the implementation of changes in Github using this approach will be demonstrated
  • Issues for proposed TG changes will be tracked as corrigenda issues on the MIG collaboration platform
  • A session/workshop should be organised at the INSPIRE conference to collect feedback from users on the functionality and possible improvements of the ETF
  • Members of the sub-group are encouraged to collect feedback from national implementers / ETF users and provide it through the ETF issue tracker
  • The new ETS for MD TG v2.0 will be made available for testing by the sub-group in either a JRC or Consortium instance.

    • 17 May, 15:00-16:30 CEST
