    • kidclamp Ask the ML for additional info about how to implement opt-out for notices. One idea would be to have "My message" at the OPAC (postponed)
  • General development discussion (trends, ideas, ...)
    • How to handle command line options vs system preferences in cron jobs?
      • There is a general push for moving configuration options out of CLI parameters and into system preferences, as this gives libraries the option to manage their settings and also because it eases contab management for servers with a lot of instances. Questions:
        • Should we have a 'main switch' in CLI still for activating/deactivating the system preference?
        • How do we switch from CLI to pref when replacing existing options seamlessly?
      • See Bug 28457 and Bug 25499 for recent discussion
  • Review of coding guidelines
  • Set time of next meeting
