Ticket #663 (new Task)
mandatory vs. optional entries in the questionnaire
|Reported by:||rupert||Owned by:||gerry|
|Priority:||critical||Milestone:||V1.2 Questionnaire release|
|Component:||WP6 - CMIP5 Questionnaire||Version:||1.0|
Someone, or some people, need(s) to look at what should be mandatory in the questionnaire and what should be optional. Where the current defaults are considered incorrect Bryan should be ticketed to make the appropriate changes.
I've ticketed Mark in the first instance as a: I mentioned this to him at the Year 2 meeting and b: he has the most experience with filling in the questionnaire for real. Mark, if you are not the right person, or do not have time, please change the owner. If you change the owner back to me then I'll open it up on the Metafor list to try to get someone else. I guess it may make sense for different people to look at different parts of the questionnaire?
This is not a blocker as the changes can be made after release, but it is important to a: ensure a certain minimal content in the resultant documents, b: it needs sorting for validation purposes and c: needs sorting before we allow users to submit their documents to CMIP5. I guess it could be slipped to V1.1 release but there is not real reason to do this other than not having enough time.
A related request (I'm not sure if this has been ticketed) came from Sylvia when she asked for component long names to be mandatory.
