OFIS Notes from 11 Mar 2009

Met from 11am-12:30.

  • Following direction from Peter van Beek last week, we discussed his CS Research Directory profile and how that information differs from Engineering's generated reports.
    • opinion from OFIS-coders: generating research directory profiles should be "easy" in a technical sense.
  • Discussed CS data-output formats. Probably latex and HTML to start; .doc?
  • Discussed data stored and how Daniel will access project's source-code.
  • Ongoing discussion with OFIS project workers (Jack, Vu, Marlon) on current development area: admin interface for staff with differing roles.

Upcoming tasks:

  • Daniel will meet with Vu Huynh (CPH 4318) on Friday morning to tour the source-code.
    • Samba, auth by nexus. smb://ofis.uwaterloo.ca/ofis .
    • /phpmyadmin access
    • /git - though they aren't actively using source-control yet.
  • Daniel will investigate how simplest to obtain CS "date joined" data.
    • Dean's office? directly from the existing Research Directory profiles? CSCF/Bill?
  • Daniel will investigate CS format for publication citations: is it a different format than Eng's?

Useful URLs:

ST Items:

  • 52764 - includes discussion of our directory generation process, file and database locations
  • 64792 - math research directory: PDF generation.
