Advance CAMP preparation
Are there topics we would like to raise at the ACAMP Unconference?

At the 2013 ACAMP in Burlingame, Chris did a new UI demo and there were other Grouper related sessions.

Decision: Discuss potential ACAMP sessions at the Grouper-Dev call on Wed. Oct. 8, 2014,
So we make the most of this Face-to-Face opportunity

Making the Grouper Community Contributions/Adopter Sketches More Helpful

Bill has been reviewing the Adopter Sketches on the Grouper Community Contributions wiki:

Would be helpful to indicate which sketches are most current and most relevant.

Grouper v2.2.1 Release

Open issues for the Grouper 2.2.1 Release: <>

Chris is working on Grouper Loader performance issues that have been reported.

Shilen will work on the Grouper All issue (note this work has been completed since the call) "Prevent GrouperAll from getting admin/update/groupAttrUpdate/member privileges on groups"

This will impact the upgrade to Grouper 2.2. Shilen has updated the upgrade instructions:

Dave is working on the PSP can't see integer ID issue.

Some performance issues can be improved by changing the defaults around widgets.
Chris created this JIRA:

Goal is to start to release Grouper 2.2.1 within a week or two.
