Minutes of Previous Meetings


Value Range of High Contrast

Kasper just added "OFF" to the value range of "highContrastTheme".

Might be a good idea to include a "do nothing" switch for each preference in a preference set to allow overriding an already-set preference by using a more specific "condition".

Decision: Add a new common terms to disable high contrast. This will be called highContrastEnabled (boolean) and replaces display.screenEnhancement.highContrast from the first pilot phase.

Common Terms

The current solutions registries/transformers use a mix of naming conventions for common terms. See Discussion on Profile Structure. There is an ontology for transforming flat terms into hierarchical terms. The naming convention needs to be revisited after the second pilot phase.

Proposal: have a "xxxEnabled" term for all optional features that actually be turned off (like contrast, but obviously not fontsize).

Rationale: Make it possible to turn off certain settings, e.g. high contrast, if they are enabled in a user's "default preferences" but need to be disabled in specific conditions (e.g. in the evening).


Both matchmakers confirmed: Same as last time, just hooking the match(..) function. Already configurable through architecture config files.

Integration Tests

test process:

  • start server
  • read settings
  • logs in
  • checks settings and apps running
  • logs out
  • checks if settings and apps returned to normal

Integration with MMs: should all go well with configs.
