The following points have been discussed:
The EC gives a green light to ESRF to continue on defining what could be the statutes of a Tango foundation (in the framework of the gravit project). Once the statutes will have been more precisely defined, they will be given to each institute in order to be checked by institute lawyers
FP 7 - IC10
Andy Will go to Brussels to discuss if Tango could fit in one of the EU call proposal. Solaris (Piotr) and Elettra (Claudio) will help Andy to find in which calls Tango has a chance to be accepted. Alba would like to have Sardana included in the call if it fits well. Andy will send a mail around to keep us informed.
Tango 9 features
Accepted by the EC after some re-design of the enumeration labels propagation (for the new enumerated attribute data type) in case they are modified by some clients.
There was a request for a new feature looking like a "service discovery" but today, it's not in the plan of future kernel development.
The EC ask Jean-Michel to continue this useful work. It is accepted that each institute member of the collaboration has to nominate a contact person to help Jean-Michel. Two remarks from the EC related to IP:
Pogo has to be modified to allow user to choose a licensing model and generates appropriate files header
Special care has to be taken about IP of supplier code in case it is stored in the Tango-ds repositories
Pink site and Forum
The EC agrreed that Krister (MAX IV) works on modifying/improving the pink site
If required, Alba accepts to install and backup a Forum product to be used as a mailing list replacement. Forum configuration - moderation will be done by Max IV (Krister) and/or ESRF (Emmanuel)
The Tango-ds wiki will be used to discuss Tango standard interfaces. A page on the pink site will be created to re-direct people interested by this subject to the wiki. Piotr proposed to prepare a template of the standard interface document.
Once an agreement will be found, Pogo will by default propose them to the Tango class developper.
Due to IP issues, the Tango logo has be changed. A "call for Logo" will be sent on the mailing list. A final decision will be made during the next Tango meeting
Tango@icalepcs2013 in San-Francisco
The EC decided to continue organizing a Tango workshop the day before the Icalepcs conference. This time, it could be organized as a complete Tango project with a Tango class development written during the morning session (using Arduino and Android hardware) and Sardana during the afternoon.
Next Tango meeting
Tango meeting should be organized every 9 months and should have a duration of 2 full days
The next Tango meeting will be organized by Alba in June 2013
