Weekly Meeting:

  • discussion on LaTeX and RTF: marlon and ray determined that freebsd "rtf2latex" did a good job on a sample report template file.
  • bibtex imports: does a bibtex file have a unique identifier we can rely on, if they re-upload? I think so. Or, on re-import, do we need to try and match every field for duplicates? Or, if there's a re-import, back up the old version and overwrite it?
    • address this when we have sample code.
  • bibtex exports: profs might consider OFIS as the master-copy, if they could export bibtex. Or auto-display their bibtex on their website?...
  • Engineering is discussing faculty-wide webpages (see last week, item #3).
    • I asked about within-faculty "groups"? No, probably not.
    • Very similar to a request for "affiliations" for search (by prof, Rick x).
    • Both of these sound like keywords, or tagging.
  • Quest: campus-wide: Marlon doesn't know when the campus-wide data will be available.
  • At least, campus-wide, OFIS will hold the names of courses a prof is teaching.
    • In Engr, will keep existing process, Karen updates course-critiques in week 5, then sends that for OFIS import.
    • Gee, if only we had access to campus-wide course critique data.
    • How does cs/math handle course-critique data again? I will look up and report back to Marlon.

  • subversion: I will be up to speed in some time on branching/merging in between a week and three weeks, so I can report back then.

Completed Tasks

  • Daniel: send Beth a copy of a blank CS merit report.
  • Daniel: send list copies of CS profs' bibtex files, perhaps one or more with multiple names in a reference.
  • Daniel: any overall projects not on the list?

Upcoming Tasks

  • Daniel: info to Marlon on CS course-critique process.
  • Daniel: get information from current OFIS users
  • Daniel: make some sort of comment to the group about reporting code and whether it's reasonable to take on the task of OFIS report modifications (as part of output development).
  • Daniel: When do I think is a good day/time for OFIS meetings?...
  • Daniel: set up meeting with Marlon, Vu, Noki, Ray about svn (in 2-3 weeks).
