     76As decided during last meeting, the NEMO Developer's Committee subgroup has been initiated in order to build a reduced agenda focusing on the points for which a discussion during the meeting is useful. This subgroup met in December 2017, [attachment:wiki:DevelopersCommittee/End2017:NEMO_DevCom_subgroup_Minutes_dec2017.pdf minutes available here ]

    7878=== Discussion on 2017 annual report  
     
    116116* AGRIF WG is more active which is good news, but one of its active members TimGraham, just left. Will his work time on AGRIF be replaced (question to Mt-Office and System team)? No answer at this point. Must be on the agenda of next June’s meeting

     118'''Recommendations of Developer’s Committee to AGRIF WG:''' 
     119* The WG now has a clear view on the priorities for NEMO-AGRIF development 
     120* Ensure the availability of a tool to set up NEMO configurations with AGRIF is a high priority for 2018 
    120121 
    121122 
     
    128129* D. Marshall: the merging of vertical mixing (TKE GLS and OSMOSIS)is not mature for now, at least concerning OSMOSIS. Should maybe be envisaged later on

    130 '''Recommendations of Developer’s Committee to WG: 
     131'''Recommendations of Developer’s Committee to Air-sea interactions WG: 
    1311321.      Add list of members of this new WG in minutes of this meeting 
    1321332.      Clarify for next meeting (mid 2018) schedule of ALBATROS project contributions, their status (starting release, status of validation, of documentation) in the next 2 years.

    262 * Possibly message(s) to Steering Committee''

    264 === 2018 agenda of Working groups (to be completed by WG leader before/after the meeting)  
    265  
    266   ''List of questions the WG is targeting/expecting to answer:'' 
     255=== Information on XIOS and OASIS: possible evolutions, convergences, sustainable resources for development and support  
     256XIOS (Input/output component used in NEMO, developped at IPSL) and OASIS (coupler, developped at CERFACS) are two major features needed by NEMO.  
     257They are prerequisites for NEMO (as for other components of Earth System Models). It is therefore critical to be sure of sustainable resources for their development and support. Question has been asked by the subgroup to their leader (Yann Meurdesoif for XIOS, and Sophie Valcke for OASIS).  
     258 
     259==== XIOS 
     260Resources where up to now ensured by IS-ENES2 and the ANR Convergence projects (as stated in the answer from IPSL in 2013), both ended now. There is no answer for the near future, so as no governance for now. 
     261 
     262==== OASIS 
     263* Governance set up in 2017: First meeting of Users Group and Advisory board 
     264* Concerning the sustainable resources, Sophie Valcke answered: 
     265 
     266''We stress here that for the 2018-2021 period the funding of these developments will come from CNRS (3/4 FTE), Cerfacs (1/2 FTE), the ESiWACE CoE (6 pms total), and possibly IS-ENES3 EU project ). The commitment of CNRS and Cerfacs can be considered stable: in practice, it ensures active user support to the community and the maintenance of the actual code with the possibility of minor upgrades.  
     267Additional developments will require additional funding and the only source of such additional funding seems to be EU research infrastructure projects (like IS-ENES3) or French national projects (like a CONVERGENCE follow-up). Other funding models were analysed and proposed to the community but none was considered practical.  
     268Such efforts have been successful for the past 20 years and, even if there is obviously no guarantee for the future, Cerfacs commits to keep on seeking such additional EU or national funding.'' 
     269

     271=== Presentation on open development practices elsewhere : Alistair Adcroft  
     272* Presentation of A. Adcroft

     279=== 2018 WP 
     280DevCom approves the proposed work plan so as its priorities on validation and documentation in the perspective of the new NEMO release announcement by mid 2018 
     281''' Recommendations of Developer’s Committee:''' 
     282 
     283* Following decision for Config Manager, move Config Manager development actions from Shared actions to specific Mercator ocean action 
     284* Approval on priority to Validation and documentation actions to be produced during first semester 2018
