Omnibus dependencies are done:

  • Review of coding guidelines
    • SQL8 of our coding guidelines state that SQL should not be in .pl, but should be in the module in C4 or Koha. This would mean that SQL in the Koha namespace is allowed and there is no mention of DBIC in the coding guidelines right now.
    • Update guidelines with the replacement of jQueryUI Datepicker with flatpickr
  • Set time of next meeting
