  • Introductions (please use "#info" in front of your introduction to have it show up in the automatic minutes)
  • Announcements
  • Update from the Release manager (20.11)
  • Updates from the Release Maintainers
  • Updates from the QA team
  • Actions from last meeting
    • ashimema is collecting notes about bug 15522 and is going to review and dig a bit more into the code (postponed)
    • davidnind Find and update relevant places to record Perl version required, including release notes, manual and wiki (one source of the truth) (postponed)
    • ashimema to write a guideline to forbidding the use of type "number"
    • davidnind to add information about what to backport to the release maintainers role page (as a starting point for further notes and guidance)
    • tuxayo to collect notes (if any) from past&present RMaints about their backport policies.
  • General development discussion (trends, ideas, ...)
    • What to do when updatedatabase fails ?
      • Example: Bug 18050 adds a foreign key constraint, but it's not possible if there is inconsistent data. If it fails to add the foreign key, it only prints a warning and go on, meaning Koha will continue working with a wrong DB schema.
      • "Bug 25078 - Gracefully stop updatedatabase/installer when a database change cannot be applied"
  • Review of coding guidelines
  • Set time of next meeting
