[stem-dev] Notes from the STEM Call on June 21, 2018

Notes from the STEM Call on June 21, 2018


Next Call is scheduled for Thursday, July 12, 2018, at 9 am Pacific


1. Update on STEM Version 4.0 Milestone 1

*Ahmad: Has developed Branch; working to solve two remaining problems; gets a lot of warnings, e.g., library is conflict; also icons not showing in explorer, but are in bar up top

*Jamie: Congrats to Ahmad; branch is essentially running

TO DO: Ahmad to send Jamie place where icons are defined; Jamie to help resolve

TO DO: Ahmad to post instructions on testing on stem-dev


2. STEM/Eclipse Issues
*Location of build server once Build 4 is complete: Now on a Jenkins build server at IBM that is being phased out; options are to relocate on IBM cloud, Eclipse server, or server at BfR; maintenance requirements may argue for using Eclipse server
TO DO: Ahmad to discuss with Matthias as part of logistics plan he’s developing for BfR

TO DO: Jamie to enlist Stefan or Matt Davis to help move once Build 4 has been tested


*Modification of Eclipse logos for STEM: Have not received response to request for formal EMO approval (per bug 534480)

TO DO: Jamie to prepare a slide deck proposal that includes the logos to submit to Eclipse when build is complete; will consult with Ahmad in process

STEM will then graduate from Milestone status to a Release  

*By group affirmation: Creation of two awards as incentive across the greater STEM community: STEM committer of the year and STEM contributor of the year

TO DO: Develop a pmg image (“badge”) and a few sentences for certificates and also What’s New on the STEM website and wiki; call participants, others to send proposals to stem-dev 

3. Project Updates 

*Emily: Has determined asking R to do a global change might cause problems and thus will not pursue; having some strange results with disease initialize when using stochastic solver, gets different values

TO DO: Emily to send Jamie a small test model for diagnosis    

*Taras: Having difficulty running batch experiment in SIR modeling project

TO DO: Taras to send folder to Jamie for diagnosis

TO DO: Though not the source of this problem, the icons for “experiment” vs. “automatic experiment” are confusing; may be lessened when icons rearranged in new branch, but need clarification in documentation; Judy to put warnings on both pages in wiki 


4. Bugs (B) and Feature Requests (FR)

B 534480: EMO approvals for current and future STEM logos (See item 2)

B 530858: “Randomize Seed” feature moved to branch; Jamie to Close Bug 

FR 530546: Avoiding misspellings in disease and population decorator; new, stem.ui-inbox

FR 530549: Warning decorators not editable through the scenario in STEM; new, stem.ui-inbox 


5. Items from STEM website, newsgroup

*30 May 2018. “In AGR while creating datapool ‘Link to Datapool’ is not visible” (Eclipse user): Jamie replied to this, which appears to be from a member of a different user group

*15 April 2018. Re Java Community Process, link posted for (Werner Keil): Thanks to Werner for the link
