- PJ aims to have a somewhat annual release of the definitions
- Schedule releae for March 2022
- PJ suggest dropping support for python <3.7 since 2.6 is at the end of its support period.
- PC suggests also removing any use of the six module since it shouldn’t be need when there shouldn’t be any Python2 code
- PC further suggests switching to h5py version3 - PJ thinks it may not be needed (happens automatically)
- PJ asks if we are ready to cut the cord from the Jenkins server? PC thinks yes. PJ waiting for acknowledgement from FA.
- PJ discusses adopting Github workflow
- Github (branch, not yet main) will autonatically build the docs on every push and will publish it if there is a release tag provided.
- Will wait for FA before implementing it in main.
- HG asks for details about the yml file that PJ asked her to create for the ontology repo
- PJ says it is mostly for setting up the appropriate python/conda environment required to run the code.
- PC presents PR#957 for describing a POI.
- mostly complete, but still an issue with declaring which fields are optional.
- PC has also been working on NXbeam to define the reference plane of the polarisation.
Next meeting to be in the second half of January, 2022. poll
