Meeting minutes

Project status

  • Satu presented the updated Kalle flowchart, where the IdM (Sun Identity Manager) process is illustrated (Satu).
  • Seán presented the Kalle demo for the controlled authorization.
  • Access to the Kalle demo at was given to UHEL members (IP numbers or IP areas needed to open the ports).
  • It was decided that the UHEL members will send their feedback after testing the demo themselves.

Kalle demo presentation at the FIN-CLARIN workshop on December 14

  • Antti and Jussi may show the demo during their presentation.
  • For the Kalle demo, they will find out the IP numbers of the meeting location (University of Helsinki main building, Unioninkatu 34, Auditorium VIII). In addition to a network connection, a VPN protected connection may come into question.

Steering group decisions

  • The Steering group approved that the Sun Identity Manager can be used for Kalle. Stephen Avae II (CSC) will be the IdM consultant to the Kalle project after mid-January. This means that the authorization workflow development cannot start before mid-January.
  • The updated project schedule was approved. The test period was cut by merging the UHEL and pilot testing periods. According to the updated schedule, the Kalle project will be finished in May 2010.
    • The Kalle demo is needed for the CLARIN prototype which will enable Finnish, Dutch and German users to access language resources in any of these countries. The prototype should be in operation in March 2010. The Kalle project group will do its best to meet the March deadline for the CLARIN prototype.
  • Human resources used: 12 months of 12
    • Additional funding by the Ministry of Education for FIN CLARIN would secure the completion of the Kalle project.
  • Antti's successor from the 1st of January 2010:
    • Krister Lindén from the University of Helsinki
    • The project plan was updated respectively
    • Antti is willing to be the Kalle test user.
    • The project team thanks Antti for his efforts in this project and wishes him all the best in the future!
