Chris reviewed the Grouper permissions demo that he sent out earlier in the week.
Comments: it looks good!
Would be good for people to poke at this permission UI on the demo server and tell Chris where more help text is needed.
Chris walked the group through a movie on role assignment vs. individual assignment
Q: Can a user change/configure the algorithm for non-hierarchical organizations?
A: No, because then each implementation would need its own documentation
Attribute Framework Issues related to Move/Copy Stem
Shilen analyzed the issue related to move/copy stem that was discussed on the last call. Shilen found quite a few possiblities, and he sent a summary Grouper-core.
Chris said that Shilen's approach is good, better than using hooks.
Shilen will proceed with the approach outlined in his email. See GRP 612
1. Need to add options in the API and UI to allow copying of attributes (excluding rules) when copying a group or stem.
2. Need to fix rules when moving a group or stem.
3. Also need to look at attributeDef and attributeDefName renames to make sure they do the right thing.
Review of Jira issues
There are 53 unresolved JIRA issues for Grouper 2.0
The group reviewed these JIRAs and made a few updates to them.
Next call: Wednesday, July 6, noon ET
