First tcon using WebEx

  • Web forums (nabble, google group)
    • Needs to be mirrored on email list.
    • Searching forums
    • Threaded discussions
    • Sharing Files ( is an option)
    • Try to limit the number of tools and sites that we use.
    • Copyright issue on posted content.
      • Nabble allows contributors to maintain ownership of material posted.
    • Can also use forum mechanism to broadcast on main page.
    • What about non-member postings?
      • Can subscribe in mailman without being set up to receive emails?
  • Google testing framework
    • CDash aggregates results
    • CTest runs the tests
    • Google testing provides a framework for unit tests.
      • Google Test Primer
      • Test "A" should return a value of 5, verify the test produces the correct value
        • Currently encoded in individual tests by the test writer
      • Google Test Primer
    • Google Test could streamline the process of writing tests and hence make it more likely that people write good tests
    • What are the requirements for a new test framework?
    • How does this tie into CTest @ Home?
    • How does Google Test compare to Brad's article on IJ on testing?
    • Luis, Dan, Hans, Brad, Brian to follow up
  • Wrapping (Stephen's hair brained idea)
    • Matlab like wrapping sounds good
    • Microscopy people still use streaming and pipeline
    • Python infrastructure register modules with pipeline. Dan's design does support some of this?
    • Also sounds like NiPype but NiPype doesn't stream
  • Google Docs site for sharing proposals for ITK v4 and A2D2. Just technical sections, no business plans needed. Email Jim to get access.
