  • Introductions (please use "#info" in front of your introduction to have it show up in the automatic minutes)
  • Announcements
  • Update from the Release manager (20.05)
  • Updates from the Release Maintainers
  • Updates from the QA team
  • General development discussion (trends, ideas, ...)
    • 1) What's the state of ES 7 support? [tuxayo]
      • There doesn't seem to be anything related to ES 7 other than Bug 22520
      • Should we have something like this? «Bug 20196 - [Omnibus] Prepare Koha to ElasticSearch6 - ES6»
    • 2) Default ES versions of koha-testing-docker and KohaDevBox [tuxayo]
      • Should they move to ES 6 by default? ES 5 is end of life since 2019-03 (ES 7 release)
      • And should they move to ES 7 by default after a few months ?
        • When the deprecation warnings and the 1 known bug will be fixed, how can we find more bugs?
        • Because we can expect ES 6 to go end of life (ES 8 release) between the end of the year and the beginning of 2021
    • 3) Should koha-testing-docker and KohaDevBox have ES enabled by default instead of Zebra? [tuxayo]
      • Again, to find more bugs. And it would make sense if we want to move toward making ES the recommended search engine in Koha.
  • Review of coding guidelines
    • New coding guideline: Accessibility - aria-hidden="true" (see Bug 25166)
  • Set time of next meeting
