    13 As 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 ]

    4545Discussion: 
    4646* AGRIF working with TOP is a functionality that has been dropped for now. This should be reconsidered. 
    4747* Usefulness of test cases (vortex used widely for AGRIF). Should become systematic 
    48 * Back port (better) status of AGRIF in the trunk now to 3_6_STABLE? Would need a large amount of work on LIM3 and vvl if is was to be done. No member of DevCom advocates for this back port.

    4949* Nesting tools allow setting up a NEMO configuration with AGRIF zoom. It’s update in order to work with the future release is scheduled, which is indeed an important and priority task, since for now people willing to use AGRIF are stopped by configuration problems. It is indeed critical to have a tool for this. Why doing it with Nesting tools, rather than for example with SIREN? 
    5050Answer: 
     
    5252 * For the future (where a number of AGRIF zooms can be expected) using directly the AGRIF library is seen by WG as the best way to go, since it is more flexible. 
    5353 
    54 * 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

    8888Since the Developer’s Committee now has a subgroup to discuss things in advance and prepare agenda of meetings, the Devcom asks 
    89 1.      For the next 6 months, this WG is on hold, and decision to be made during next DevCom meeting (mid 2018) 
     891.      For the next 6 months, this WG is on hold, and decision to be made during next !DevCom meeting (mid 2018) 
    90902.      For each of the four existing tools, complete a brief report, for April 2018, using the template sent by subgroup in March. List of reports : SIREN (Julien Paul), Nesting tools (J. Chanut), BDY tools (Stefania Ciliberti), pynemo (J. Harle). Same request to Test case WG on the tools to set up a test case configuration (S. Flavoni) 
    91913.      Since the tools for setting up an AGRIF configuration are the priority of Consortium for now, move the SIREN Actions of 2018 Work plan from “Shared actions”, to “Specific actions for Mercator” 
     
    144144''Organize a workshop with NEMOVAR and NEMO/Assim communities on data assimilation issues, setting the scene for creating a European infrastructure in marine data assimilation. This will include an assessment of the strengths, weaknesses as well as long term evolution plans and future commonalities (e.g. ensemble approaches) of the NEMOVar, NEMO/Assim and SAM tools.''
