Notes

  • xd-transform
    • Work is coming along nicely
    • Nearly have xdmail component fully converted
    • Will work on xd, but going to wait until Vince has completed working to avoid merge conflicts

  • Config
    • Beau added around 30 unit tests covering service layer
      • 8-10 are useful, the rest are stub tests for stubbed methods
    • Added tasks to the task board for coders to take on
      • Surrounding service classes and dao classes
      • Should be easy to do, based on code already done for some classes
    • Tim is getting up to speed with code, should be able to contribute soon

  • Install
    • Mark has completed first draft of install scripts
      • Covers unix, windows, os x
    • JCE should probably be removed from the steps
      • This should be a pre-req
      • Licensing issues covering inclusion of this anyways
    • Metro should be removed
      • The jar from this resource is needed for xd only
    • Need to decide what do do about keystores
      • Demo keystores are not appropriate for production environment
