This is the tracking bug for last minute details for the 1.4.0 release of
metacat. Before releasing, we need to:

1) Review and revise documentation, including installation instructions
2) Check that the harvester code is properly integrated and documented
3) Create a function for re-indexing xml_nodes into xml_index
3a) make sure the new xml_index with larger path is created in each db
4) finish testing access control support for 2.0.1
5) change use_xmlindex to 'true'
6) develop a test case for inserting and reading both an EML 2.0.0 doc and an
EML 2.0.1 doc (the access control tests may satisfy this)
7) Update README with appropriate contributors list

4) and 6) done.

Checked that 5) is done.

Working on 2.

#2 Updated by Matt Jones almost 18 years ago

(3) is now complete -- indexing can be accomplished using the 'buildindex'
action by people in the 'adminsitrators' list. Still need to work on (3a) for
postgres upgrades by deleting xml_index, recreating it with the larger column,
and then repopulating it by running the 'buildindex' servlet target.

(5) is complete -- now the default is usexmlindex=true

(7) is completed

#3 Updated by Matt Jones almost 18 years ago

(1) is done for now -- its been reviewed and is reasonable accurate, but not
perfect. Needs another pass.
(2) is done -- harverster is working according to Sid's tests.
(3a) is done, the table is recreated.

#4 Updated by Matt Jones almost 18 years ago

All items complete. Version 1.4.0 of metacat is now complete, tested, and
released. It is tagged in CVS as METACAT_1_4_0. We will be updating the
website and putting the installers on the website shortly, and then will send an
email announcing the release. Closing this bug. Yeehaaa!
