     2 
     318 June 2007 
     4 
     5== PML Actions == 
     6 * E-mail around NEODAAS banner to NDG list + Kay and Richard at BODC. 
     7 * Bryan ready for PML !DataGranules as soon as we get them into our MOLES, e.g. 2 weeks? 
     8 * Need granule names in CSML - minor change. 
     9 
     10== Finance == 
     11 
     12 * All OK. 
     13 
     14== Staffing == 
     15 * Fabio - leaving 31 July, handing over and documenting. 
     16 
     17== Highlight report == 
     18 * Some issues on Discovery look and feel, rotating banner for various environmental images. 
     19 * Browse progressing - PML and NOCS. Firewall issues. 
     20 * Bryan using AJAX e.g. for calling vocab server. 
     21 * CSML2 good progress, parser, NetCDF, PML Images, QXF.  
     22 * Steve's Vis via OGC but found CSML bugs. 
     23 * BODC MOLES has been made available. 
     24 * CSML populated everywhere except NOCS. 
     25 * Everything due for completion! Discovery will just be a bit prettier than Glue version. Icons, banner, colour scheme. Need shopping cart and cookies, with same framework as Steve. 
     26 * Thursday showing Discovery etc. to ISG. 
     27 * Security - hopefully simple installation, then role mapping and back-end integration at each DP. So nothing stopping roll out to all DP...? 
     28 * NOCS need to generate DIF from MOLES rather than independently from DB. 
     29 * National all-hands e-Science meeting in early Sep., Phil/Bryan giving NDG Security paper. Also Steven going. 
     30 * Oct. NERC Data Centres conference, so everything must be working then, Leamington Spa. Bryan/Roy giving keynote talks. 
     31 * Bryan giving talk at Royal Society (+ paper in Phil. Trans.) in Feb 2008, so that should be the everything working time. 
     32 * Agt 
     33 
     34== Issues == 
     35 * Discovery/browse performance - times out. Will have to leave as is, eXist problems so could use another: Torino? !SleepyCat? Or improve schema.  
     36 
     37 
     38== Project planning == 
     39 
     40=== Extension === 
     41 * PML contract ends 31 Oct. (NOCS ends 30 Sep.), Bryan will be asking for no-cost extension until 31 Dec. 2007, for all partners. 
     42 
     43=== NDG3? === 
     44 * ENDGAIM not funded under EO Mission Support. Problems related to lack of deployment/usage of NDG2, e.g. website still showing 'new' icon on NDG1 Alpha. 
     45 * Security stuff - Phil got funding from OMIC for 14 months, repackaging from Twisted to Whiskey(?) plus more stuff. 
     46 * Interim proposal for 5 FTE to continue development/deployment of NDG2 technology. E-Science mtg discussions. But no interim money for BADC (as DP), BODC, PML, NOCS, etc. Possibly BAS and BGS next instead. Clear water between NDG and BADC. 
     47 * ISG/SISB paper ask for interim funding, long term goals inc. NDG.  
     48 * Ned E-Science - 'medium-sized initiative', possibly CSML and Vocab. 
     49 * NERC KT proposal round - Andrew Woolf - CSML + Met Office, NCOF? Operational met forecasting, etc. 
     50 * Helen - front-end dev, e.g. including ESSC Godiva to design interface, maybe with security attached. 
     51 * Bryan - NDG 'company' with licencing from Data Providers? 
     52 
     53=== Final phase timetable === 
     54 
     55=== Deliverables, product defn === 
     56 * Single python stack - easyInstall ndg (if you have fastCGI already). easyInstall csml. 
     57 * Plus all the docs, etc. In a ticket already. 
     58 
     59=== Documentation === 
     60 * Deadline end Sep..? Kev do MOLES.  
     61 * Format - any, e.g. Word doc, Openoffice. Will eventually go out as PDF. Stick with old NDG template. But probably replace with the new discovery logo. 
     62 
     63 
     64=== NERC Liason event === 
     65 * See above, Oct in Leamington Spa. 
     66 
     67 
     68== Risks review == 
     69 
     70== AOB ==
