Roadmap Steve Fisher

Discussion on the Roadmap:

  • Documentation should include best practices
  • Concerning the suggested move to Github it was pointed out that links to external repositories would always be needed
  • It was suggested that a reporting tool summarising statistics on the data held in ICAT and its use (derived from the logs) would be useful.
  • The icatproject.org website should include list of facilties using ICAT and a catalogue of all known "serious" ICATs partly to attract new users to ICAT.
