- JRA1: concrete development plans --> (c) - end of October

- how does this related with the software release plan

- software release plan --> produced by SA1 (Christina)
-- timeline, releases
-- overlap!

TBD Morris : to get in touch with Christina, release manager (DSA2.1) - get JRA1 Leaders in the loop

In Progress: Quality Control

Earlier discussed:
Previous material collected

Observation: Difficult to get information out of the PT teams.

Postpone to (c)

Continuation of the JRA1 development plans & Task lists for EMI-1 as a high priority in JRA1 (ECB input!)

First four technical areas, then cross concerns and standardization/integration plans

Second, test plans and quality control aspects in context.

Third, how we progress significantly with this - perhaps mostly using e-mail & phone calls

Goal: Development plans ready by end of October as discussed in Amsterdam.

TBD Morris : Upload slides

TBD Morris : Test plan discussion with Andrea 

Possible preparations for EMI Arch F2F at CERN

- Apart from send input for development plan ok

Patrick: Maybe a milestone would be late

- Informed Florida

bi-weekly JRA1 conference unless some urgent topic (e.g. development plan if we see we have no progress)
- not everybody always present due to conferences (that's life and can't be really changes)

- over time participation is important, missing one meeting is not a problem


- nothing
