GOCDB steaming ahead!

I've just come out of the GOCDB Advisory Group meeting and its great to hear that real progress is being made. The GOCDB developer, Gilles Mathieu from STFC, UK, is planning to transition to GOCDB4 in November, which takes on a model to allow for regionalisation and customisation of the tool. Some regions had tested the latest version and feedback was positive. Being able to customise a regional instance, such as to add a field for middleware type, was seen as very useful. And Gilles and his team managed to keep everyone's attention for the full 2 hours, despite having no power to the room, - so no slides!
