Feedback on Grouper 2.2.0
Gail Dunmire of PSU reported that the person who did the install of Grouper 2.2.0 at PSU needed to do it several times. The configuration file overlays took time. Overall, the config overlays are a good improvement and will save time for future upgrades. The new install process, made possible with the Upgrader provided with Grouper 2.2.1 sounds like a good improvement.
Provisioning Future (Dave Langenberg, U. Chicago)
The current PSP approach to provisioning has shown some problems with efficiency. Having the SPML engine in the middle is an issue.
Over last several months, the Grouper team, with input from the community, has discussed how to handle provisioning in Grouper moving forward (starting with the Grouper 2.3 release).
Bill Thompson, Lafeyette College: those who are working on new Grouper deployments need info as soon as possible regarding the future of the PSP.
Question: will there be embedded AMQ?
Question: will there be bulk reconciliation?
