JRA1.7 - List of EMI-1 meta-packages


  • Provide a complete list of EMI1-meta-packages


  • What is the definition of a meta-package? Is described in Packaging Guidelines. Every PT should provide a meta-package to define sets of packages to be installed together. Furthermore, there are cross-PT meta packages (e.g. EMI UI).
  • The collected metapackage names are mostly not conform to the EMI naming conventions. Request to Cristina about the correct name of a metapackage. Waiting for an answer.
  • Detailed list about sub-packages of every EMI-1 meta-package.
  • Again asking PTs about when the planned metapackages are available.
  • Discussion with Steve about SAGA packages in UI and WN. Should there be a separate metapackage for SAGA, so that we have metapackages of metapackages?

EMI Key Objectives in Context (derived from deliverable DNA1.3.1)

  • None
    • TBD: to be revised by PTB
