Agenda/Chair: Amina
Minutes: Midori
Attendees: Amina, Midori, Harold, Karen C, Jen

Action items carried over

Not filled in this week

Amina would like more continuous work on agenda; don't leave it 'til Monday evening

will let wg members decide whether to attend, e.g. for demos

Demo planned for today - asserting implied links

needed for (e.g.) David H & Tanya's GO work [brief description of why it needs improvement - not a proper component; seizes focus]
Amina has made it into a full-fledged component now [more description of new improved behavior]
not ready to demo today after all, but Midori suggests inviting more people, incl David & Tanya, for demo next week

Action item: Amina will finish work on assert-implied-links component, and email OEwg list

Action item: Midori will inform a few others who might be interested in the demo

Discussion items

  • No changes in Graph Viewer so far - Amina didn't change any code between rc1 and release, but wg members see very different behavior (demoed last week).

Action item: Amina will look at Graph Viewer again and try to figure out what's going on

  • Biocurator conference feedback (Jen)
    • Two users - David OS and Rex Chisholm - report crashes after just a few edits. Jen asked Rex to send steps to replicate problem, log file, etc. Maybe a cross-product angle? Graph Editor? Some experiences ....
      • Midori and Harold seldom use GE, and rarely see crashes
      • Karen C uses GE mainly for viewing, and only gets crashes with reasoner on; with reasoner off, if OE has been running a while GE goes unresponsive
    • Jen: there are probably users who work around problems rather than submit bug reports - lots of downloads, ~50 users in Colin's group, etc.

Action item: Jen will visit Colin's group, watch users, try to solicit bug reports, etc.

  • UTF-8 support feature request
there is a config option for "allow extended characters" - what's it supposed to do, and is it working?

Action item: Amina will look into extended character support

  • Harold - someone working PRO thought OE2 couldn't save things because "Save As" defaulted to desktop. Leads to questions: where are profiles stored on Windows? Should OE2 have detected profiles from OE1 installation?
  • WG should prioritize feature requests - not ready today, but would be good to do in the next few weeks.
  • Jen - using reasoner with GO still difficult; can't turn it on and off many times in a session.

[discussion of profiling, threads, listeners, etc.; a bit techy for the minute-taker]

Now that first OE2 release is out, have more freedom to change things
