    • Should we advocate consistency in our kohastructure file regarding `COMMENT="this is a thing"` vs `-- this is a thing` syntax... the former appears in schema classes at dump time.
    • Should we require a more recent version of Perl ?
      • Which one?
        • 5.14 because it's the minimum for 'r' regex modifier
        • 5.22 because that's the older Perl version shipped with recommended distributions
        • Are there features between 5.14 and 5.24(Debian 9) worthy of upping the required version?
      • Where should the requirements be written (README, INSTALL, release notes, wiki, manual ...)  ?
  • Review of coding guidelines
  • Set time of next meeting
