  • (discussion 2011.05.06):     (1F27)
    • an adopted Architecture & API is definitely crucial, but that's not all     (1F27A)

  • 4.6 Getting us to a stage when we can run a OOR-production box ... (deferred discussion of this item)     (1F33)
    • we need a gatekeeping/policy module in place - [KenBaclawski]     (1F33A)
  • 4.7 Renewed OOR tactics (as agreed during the 2013.06.18 meeting) - there is general consensus we would change to a more bottom-up approach (rather than the "top-down" approach we have been taking ...     (1F34)
    • we will allow each oor node project to develop (colore, ontohub, socop, oor public instance, etc.) on their own, and coordinate the "team" effort through the use of a shared set of metadata, API and the UI (e.g. how people download (or even upload) ontologies, etc.)     (1F34A)
    • The key is to ensure that each of the ontology repository projects in OOR are interoperable from the software perspective, uniform in the GUI, and they use a shared approach to ontology metadata     (1F34B)
    • we will make to be an ontology registry, which then links to the ontologies in the actual ontology repository where the ontology is described     (1F34C)
    • actions will be focused on developing three things (hopefully within the next 3 months): the set of metadata, the API, and some shared thoughts on the UI     (1F34D)
    • after that, we will focus on building up content with each OOR node tackling the domain(s) they are best with     (1F34E)

[7:09] Peter P. Yim: Till showed us how to do a diff on github: just goto History, then click on the hexadecimal version-ID     (1G19)

[7:15] Peter P. Yim: from the source comments: # TODO: also include the gatekeeper API, BUT: users should have access to repositories (not ontologies - they belong to repositories)     (1G20)

[7:16] Peter P. Yim: Till / Peter: hopefully, this "Alignment" exercise is our last (OOR) internal step before we are in     (1G21)

a position to "publish" this API to the broader ontology community     (1G22)

[7:20] Ken Baclawski: The Item in gatekeeper should be changed to Repository to make it consistent with the Ontology.idl.     (1G23)

[7:21] Till Mossakowski: ... and then it can be imported in Ontology.idl     (1G24)

[7:22] Peter P. Yim: Question: are we handling access control and authentication via the Gatekeeper or via the BioPortal interface?     (1G26)

[7:24] Ken Baclawski: The gatekeeper.idl is not concerned with access control and authentication but rather with     (1G27)

roles and responsibilities of a user.     (1G28)

[8:03] Ken Baclawski: I will send the existing gatekeeper prototype to Till. It is based on existing business process software.     (1G32)

I also have a paper that explains the gatekeeper. Unfortunately, I was unable to modify the gatekeeper so that it could be     (1G33)

integrated with the OOR.     (1G34)

[8:05] Ken Baclawski: We will look for existing software that could be used for gatekeeping/workflow.     (1G35)
