On May 1st the Evergreen Team met with members of MassLNC to discuss various aspects of participation in the Evergreen open source development community. We had an energetic meeting and the folks from MassLNC provided lots of food for thought. They will be a valuable resource should we continue moving forward with Evergreen.
One concern that the Evergreen Team has regarding open source development is that because Evergreen's user base is largely public libraries, features that FLO libraries might find useful are less likely to be considered high-priority development items by the community. We are seeing examples of this with reserves and some aspects of authority control.
