> CURRENTLY ACTIVE TASKS

> 1 - Revising Artstor and OCW datasets (Mark)
> Progress: OCW uses Perl and XSLT. Unfortunately getting Perl

> Subtasks:
> 1.1 - Add type information to OCW
> 1.2 - Adopt a common way of displaying names in both Artstor 
> and OCW 1.3 - Work on custom browser has highlighted that 
> some of the fields in Artstor are hierarchical, need to 
> change data model to reflect this and update browser
> 
> 2 - Displaying Artstor and OCW datasets in Haystack (Steve, 
> Vineet, Mark)
> Progress: Can display Artstor data in Haystack (see enclosed 
> screenshot)
> Subtasks:
> 2.1 - Some issues about redraw speed in Haystack
> 2.2 - If you click on facet, then it no longer displays as a 
> collection but as a list of URIs 2.3 - want to be able to 
> customise the fields in the facet navigator as some contain 
> technical metadata which we are excluding from the demo 2.4 - 
> In Haystack, the faceted browser only identifies 984 items in 
> the collection, whereas the custom browser has 3046 - why is 
> this? 2.5 - Haystack also needs to address the hierarchical 
> fields issue, but it is less obvious here as this detail is 
> swamped due to the technical metadata 2.6 - Need to work on 
> displaying OCW data, but this is waiting on the OCW dataset
> 
> 3 - Produce HTML front-end for Haystack (Steve)
> Progress: Steve
> 
> 4 - Custom browser (Mark)
> Progress: Have made very good progress, now have a working 
> prototype that can browse Artstor data (see enclosed screenshot)
> Subtasks:
> 4.1 - Need to add paging for facets
> 4.2 - Need to add reordering of facets
> 4.3 - Need to add hierarchical grouping of facets, where 
> appropriate 4.4 - Could add searching to facets 4.5 - Need to 
> demonstrate OCW dataset in prototype 4.6 - Currently 
> prototype uses lucene as a query engine. Need to switch to 
> using RDQL. 4.7 - Put prototype in CVS for team feedback
> 
> 5 - CVS access for all team members (Mark)
> Progress: Mark has arranged CVS access for all team members
> Subtasks:
> 5.1 - Need to reorganize CVS in a more intelligent manner, 
> make proper build scripts
> 
> 6 - Haystack Joseki Integration (Vineet, David H, Steve)
