Action: Alan - look at help string details Ian added to the wiki

There was a discussion about beanshells and local workers and how to represent that some beanshells were 'special' representations of local workers. It was suggested that this be done using annotations - we need to write a story for this. Action Tom: write a beanshell/local worker story 

Tom: been working on API for reference set management, now checked-in. Will get collection API done by the end of the week. The API changes will change the activities, so these will need to be implemented as well. Tom has also been working on hibernate, raven and spring interoperability

Report back/Upcoming from Team A

Provenance meeting with Norman and Paolo - discussed why some iterations were 'missing' and came up with a new query building strategy to solve it

Ian discussed the progress of his Google summer of code student. We suggested he look at our related work and encourage him to post to the lists rather than privately to Ian.

Report back/Upcoming from Team B

Jits has been working on packs and generating ORE manifests

Had a meeting with WHIPs project and discussed how this might be a mechanism for building a myexp/taverna plugin and mediating uploading/downloading workflow data bundles. There are still lots of issues to explore - what will users need to do to install? Is it too hard and likely to put people off?

Biocatalogue: Franck and Eric working on the platinum model for annotation and the boundaries for the bronze, silver and gold. Will start using these models to annotate example services this week
