EDRN Committee list and membership information for the EDRN Knowledge Environment

Project description

This product, eke.committees, provides display and RDF ingest of committee information into the EDRN Knowledge Environment (EKE). EDRN uses the EKE to make it easy to discover, share, search for, and retrieve all of EDRN’s collective knowledge, including cancers and other diseases, biomarkers, specimens, investigators, participants, studies, protocols, and-as in the case of this product-committee information.

Although intended for the EDRN public portal, it can be installed in any Plone compatible site.

This software is developed by the EDRN Informatics Center at JPL, operated by the California Institute of Technology, for NCI.


Use Buildout with the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe.

  • Add eke.committees to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

    recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
    zcml =
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    % ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package’s configure.zcml file.


What follows is a history of changes from release to release. For more details about specific issue IDs listed below, consult the issue tracker at

1.0.6 — Upgrades

  • Made compatible with Plone 4.1.5.
  • CA-1001 - Put Group Spaces under Committees and ingest via RDF

1.0.5 — Test Support

This release includes:

  • Depending on just Plone the framework instead of Plone the application.

1.0.4 — Increases Resilience Rating by 30 for 60 minutes

This release boosts test resiliency.

1.0.3 — Sitting Down

This release updates the chair and co-chair of collaborative groups as committees are ingested from RDF.

1.0.2 — Let’s Collaborate!

  • Re-attaches members of committees of type “Collaborative Group” to any name-matching “Collaborative Group” objects (from edrnsite.collaborations) in the portal. You should re-ingest committees to do this re-attachment whenever you re-ingest sites (because the site ingest destroys People objects).
  • Uses the modern framework.
  • Collaborative Groups are now hidden.

1.0.1 — Upgrade Cleanup

This release updates the GenericSetup profile to 4, and provides upgrade steps to that profile.

1.0.0 — Plone 4

This release makes eke.committees compatible with Plone 4.

0.0.0 — Unreleased

Initial release into beta. Creation of this project was spurred on by these issues:

  • CA-718 - Replace manually maintained committee information with RDF ingest
