Term Suggestion Application
Deployment waiting for deployment of LexEVS 6.4.  Met with Erin and Rob about possible updates to the CDISC Term suggestion page.
NCIm Browser

Performed trouble-shooting on a broken NCI Hierarchy problem. It is likely a data issue relating to the indexing. The search of concept by a source code, SRC-NCI is failing.

Issue with the source information showing up in the browser.  Looks like possibly a combination of metadata and code problem.  We provided QA a new tag and it has been verified but there now seems to be an issue with synonym details page not coming up.  Looking into it now.

 7/17/2014Deployment of software, even small upgrades, have been a lengthy process.This especially affects smaller releases in which there are security or bug fixes. The Agile practices migration have been put on hold for now.
 09/10/2014Getting the environment in place for the Mayo trip to NCI.Need to get each of the environment (DEV,QA,Stage) in place before the Mayo trip on September 22nd.  We are currently one week behind.  The impact is that the Mayo developer will be onsite to work on the deployments and the tiers will not be in place. Currently we only have the DEV environment setup for the LexEVS API>
