  • Chad Redmond, UNC
  • Carey Black, OSU
  • Vivek Sachdiva, independent
  • Dave Shafer, Internet2

Action Items: Grouper Project Action Items (Google Doc)

Intellectual Property Framework: 



Continuous Integration/ DevOps (Dave Shafer)

Do we want continuous on what’s in GIT or based on patches?

  1. Unit tests on travis.  Where is the output?  Maven based?
    1. Maven has been broken for a while
    2. Oracle 7 doesnt have public releases
    3. Updating maven, or switch to gradle


Started with Internet2 six months ago.  Devops manager for trust and identity.  Project is federation manager.  Building out a jenkins service in aws.  Looking for early adopters.  Containerization?

Containers with Grouper:

  1. TIER packaging
  2. Bert has containers for testing
  3. Unicon and GDG

Chad: Travis stuff almost there.  Integration tests?

Bert: Getting Container dev env to post checkin process would be a big win


Carey: Perhaps the best approach is to also include the possibility/instructions for outside of the dev team doing “patch level testing” locally too. It may help get other to contribute code easier/faster.

Patch should be able to “add standard tests” (for the project automated testing) when accepted into the project.

Resources for testing a patch should not require “off host resources”.(IMHO)
