On the phone: Mike Sherman, Ivo Dinov, Bill Lorensen, Karen Skinner, Arthur Castle, Jennie Larkin, Jennifer Couch, Peter Good, and Peter Lyster

Peter Lyster will place his edited notes from the July 8 SDI meeting on the SDIWG wiki and ask liaisons to redact/correct.

Peter Lyster asserts that Open Source = {Open availability, Open Development}

Peter Lyster states that Open availability is something like IATR http://www.cma.mgh.harvard.edu/iatr/index.php

Jennie Larkin mentions the need for rating.

Bill Lorensen mentions that the insight journal has submissions and reviews (mostly dealing with open source image post processing in biology/biomedicine). http://www.insightsoftwareconsortium.org/InsightJournal/

Announcement MICCAI2005 (8th International Conference on Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention) meeting on Oct 30 on Open Source Software http://www.miccai2005.org/ click on ‘tutorials and workshops’.

Bill Lorensen mentions that the download site tucows has a (self?) rating system http://www.tucows.com/ Jennie Larkin: Hears unanimous support for rating.

Mike Sherman says move beyond phone book, a la IATR, and perhaps include contacts and other …? Sourceforge/Gforge has a ratings system for developers. Mike shows us the rating system that is being developed at simbios (but you can’t rate yourself!) https://simtk.org/users/sherm Mike asks the larger question: how do we capture real value? General comment. Having a list of software is not enough.

Ivo Dinov: Should it be centralized as opposed heterogeneous and dispersed? Another question is: should it be top down or bottom up—Ivo thinks bottom up is likely better with fewer enforced schema. Mike: Link to separate things difficult to get them to behave similarly. E.g., Amazon.

Jennie: A portal such as we are discussion may be difficult to navigate, and could have a lot of upkeep.

Ivo: Although we have similar requirements for bug reporting, feature tracking, and ranking, we have different organizational structures

Jennie: We are considering going beyond the phone book approach.

Bill: Is this a portal? That’s why we looked at Sherm’s site. NIH-forge could help outside users. Peter Lyster asks: is NIH-forge a superset of portal? Maybe. This is big P: IATR++ for NCBC.

Request for the next SDI tcon to be Sept 23 (which is fourth Friday, not our usual third Friday).
