Email sent to koha-devel:

   I am calling a development meeting for Tuesday, 25 February 2014, to
   be held in the #koha IRC channel.  All are welcome, but the focus will
   be on development topics.  Tentatively, I would like to discuss the
   following topics:
   - DBIx::Class and guidelines for its use in Koha
   - Search engine work, including enhancements to usage of Zebra and
   Elastic Search
   - Pending large enhancements for 3.16
   The agenda is being kept intentionally short to permit an in-depth
   discussion of each item, but if there is a topic that you want to be
   covered and which requires the participation of most or all of the
   active developers, please let me know.
   To permit everybody to participate, I propose that we effectively meet
   /twice/ that day.
   15:00 UTC+0 (
   21:00 UTC+0 (
   I will be attending both parts, of course, and will try to act as a
   bridge between the two sessions.



I can't attend the first one, its 4am nz time, but will try for the second one. --Chris 16:07, 24 February 2014 (EST)

I will try to attend both meetings. --Kfischer 07:26, 25 February 2014 (EST)



Work for this is well underway already, we have indexing going and a basic search. We are working on a Browse (the library kind of browse, not one that actually makes sense to anyone except libraries :)) search now and aim to have it all up on a server for playing with at the hackfest.

DBIx::Class (aka DBIC)

Coding guideline SQL8 forbids SQL statements in .pl files. Using DBIC is an alternative to writing SQL. So should we ban the use of DBIC from .pl files too, and just use it in subroutines in C4/* and Koha/*? --Magnus 03:12, 25 February 2014 (EST)

Pending Large Enhancements
