  • Introductions (please use "#info" in front of your introduction to have it show up in the automatic minutes)
  • Announcements
  • Update from the Release manager (18.05)
  • Updates from the Release Maintainers
  • Updates from the QA team
  • General development discussion (trends, ideas, ...)
    • REST api: Proposal to vote for: allowing devs working on the REST api implementation to change attribute names so they are more meaningfull for api consumers. For example, rename 'borrowernumber' for 'patron_id'. Pros: we can provide a readable API spec, and people unfamiliar to Koha internals will have better time using the api. Cons: some people might be using the current (3) endpoints and would need to change some attribute names.
    • sql strict mode is now the default in MariaDB - Do we continue closing our eyes or do we take care of the problems? Tasks: Wiki need to be updated
    • Elasticsearch status:
    • Javascript in footer: many patches pushed to master now, some patches touching templates may need rebase
  • Review of coding guidelines
    • Don't use DBIX calls in updatedatabase (see Bug 19789, Bug 17292)
    • Reminder - git commit messages ('Bug 12345: ', '(follow-up)', '(QA follow-up)', see git log) + what the patch does vs what the bug is.
  • Set time of next meeting
