Shilen subject API to use ldaptive.  Nice in 2.4 release. Could be done soon, needs testing.  Should be in 2.4 beta and upgrade steps

Matt: keep the admin ui?  Maybe have a tarball with jars to be able to turn on the old uis…


 Vivek UI work, bug in esb

Lite UI to New UI is done except for some wordings.  Review that later.

Working on ESB connector bug, is fixed.  Test locally.

Things like membership auditnig should wait until after beta

 Chris WS logging, deprovisioning

Commit ws logging (same patch as shilens patch)

Commit deprovisioning

Cut a tarball

 Bert – PSPNG

  Shilen WS issues, jiras, patchs

Ws patch rename a group dont set alternate name

Couple tests always failing, fixed

Test patch for using ldaptive with loader (default to vtldap in 2.3) (default to ldaptive in 2.4)

Ldaptive in subject api needs testing

Work with Chris offline about DDL changes

Work with Chris offline about WS changes for 2.4

 Chad – Jiras, libraries

Travis CI is building now - go through poms and make sure all built.  WS pom was out of date. Take out oracle jdk 7 build. And openjdk6 version.  Builds with openjdk 7 and 8 and oracle 8. Took out coveralls, doesnt publish.  Publishing to ghpages, branch in git repo. Updates thousands and thousands of files.  Publish snapshots to sonatype repo. 2.4 snapshot versions for everything we are compiling.

Things to do before beta or 2.4?  

Should we require java8 and tomcat8?  Yes

Keep source level back?  perhaps...
