Countdown to R-Day

The countdown to Release Day (from now on R-Day) is on.

Early in the morning today, project's Coordinating Comittee has held a meeting to take some final decisions regarding R-Day. First of them is that R-Day will be one of the final days of present month (from 22nd on). It now mainly depends on the agendas of the political authorities of Diputación de A Coruña and of the Dean of Universidad de A Coruña, but all the clues address to Thursday 24th.

Second decision is that R-Day will also be the 'Municipalities Day', in the sense that at this very same date gisEIEL application will be publicly delivered to A Coruña province municipalities so that they can make free use of it and of the data contained within BDT-EIEL.

Whilst R-Day comes, a hard work is to be done, as we need:
  • Review project's documentation, to being sure that it is as complete and usable as possible
  • Refit webEIEL site in order to contain new branches regarding gisEIEL releasing and community supporting
  • Prepare and set-up community participation tools and rules
  • Getting some municipalities to previously check and test the application and some of the tools, as downloading and bug-tracking ones. These municipalities are likely to be Abegondo, Cambre and As Pontes de García Rodríguez (this latter is already confirmed, the other two will be confirmed along tomorrow morning)
So, keep an eye on this blog: present month seems to going to be really interesting for gisEIEL supporters.
