    37:29 Sean Bechhofer: Stian: Review tasks are being managed within the wf4ever jira.
    37:58 Sean Bechhofer: ...primary concern was with Stian tasks. But that's not an issue.
    38:18 Sean Bechhofer: wider prioritorisation.

    40:43 Sean Bechhofer: @carole: thanks!
    41:12 Sean Bechhofer: Alan: WHat happened with Matt Lee's group?
    41:18 Sean Bechhofer: Stian: Finn looking at this?
    41:56 Sean Bechhofer: Don: Issue is that Matt Lee created a group. User has not logged in for some time, so this is unlikely.
    42:11 Sean Bechhofer: But logging in via openid may not update "last accessed time".
    42:26 Sean Bechhofer: Alan: One member of the group Kerry Winslet. Seems a bit dubious.
    42:51 Sean Bechhofer: Sean: is there a suggestion that Matt's account has been compromised?
    43:01 Sean Bechhofer: Alan: Yes, quite stroingly.
    43:29 Sean Bechhofer: Stian: Finn hinted that it may be some dodgy code that's picked the first user (Matt is user #1).
    43:36 Sean Bechhofer: Don: Possible injection attack?
    43:44 Sean Bechhofer: Alan: Done since update to rails?
    43:52 Sean Bechhofer: ...done after.
    44:41 Sean Bechhofer: Don: Take a look at the log for a quick assessment.
    45:05 Sean Bechhofer: Alan: Advertising a company.
    45:24 Sean Bechhofer: Sean; Is there a short term solution?
    46:01 Sean Bechhofer: Alan: Is Matt still admin?
    46:03 Sean Bechhofer: Don: No.
    46:44 Sean Bechhofer: Don: No evidence for injection
    46:55 Alan R Williams: @Don - Thank you from BioVeL
    48:58 Sean Bechhofer: ACTION: Don to dig a bit deeper, find out what's happening.
    49:40 Sean Bechhofer: Sean: Any other suspicious activity? We spotted this because we know Matt's and old account.
    50:33 Sean Bechhofer: Sean: What's the process for tackling this?
    50:59 Sean Bechhofer: Don: Management page created for Alan. Carole mentioned recently a "spam-hole".
    53:26 Sean Bechhofer: Sean: Any issues relating to myExp for the wf4ever review demo prep?
    53:58 Sean Bechhofer: Piotr: Would like to be able to see an updated alpha instance.
    54:14 Sean Bechhofer: me more confidence if I can see changes in alpha.
    54:30 Sean Bechhofer: ...If it's possible and to get some notification on the chat that would be good.
    54:42 Sean Bechhofer: ...Highest priority is the semantic annotations interface.
    54:49 Sean Bechhofer: ...Piotr/Marco would be most interested.
    55:47 Sean Bechhofer: Sean: Is this about specific changes or wanting to know that updates are applied?
    56:09 Sean Bechhofer: Piotr: Bit of both.
    56:20 Sean Bechhofer: Don: Generally update whenever a big change.
    56:38 Sean Bechhofer: Sean: What's the process for notifications of updates?
    56:48 Sean Bechhofer: Don: Discussed with Carole that we ought to do this.
    56:58 Sean Bechhofer: ...could be dev google group
    57:06 Sean Bechhofer: ...but wf4ever people aren't on that list.
    57:16 Sean Bechhofer: ...for alpha could push to wf4ever mailing list.
    57:33 Sean Bechhofer: Piotr; If it's relating to a jira task, could add a comment.
    57:46 Sean Bechhofer: <My audio is breaking up>
    58:37 Sean Bechhofer: <Can someone minute what Don said>
    59:14 Sean Bechhofer: ACTION: Don to provide some notification mechanism of updates to alpha.
    59:18 Alan R Williams: @Don - can you also delete (smile)
    00:20 Sean Bechhofer: Sean: Is there a page that tells me current service status/versions?
    00:32 Sean Bechhofer: Don: No
    00:57 Sean Bechhofer: Alan: David and I got confused about alpha and sandboxes.
    01:06 Sean Bechhofer: ...didn't know which to try the components out on.
    01:29 Sean Bechhofer: Don: myExp dev wiki would be the appropriate place.
    02:04 Sean Bechhofer: Sean: Doesn't need to be massively detailed, but does need to be up to date.
    02:57 Sean Bechhofer: ACTION: Don to create a status page on the wiki providing details of the services (alpha, sandbox etc) and the versions running on each.
    03:18 Sean Bechhofer: ...needs to be kept up to date.
