Long term strategy

Discussing our hosting strategy in the long run which is important for e.g. which links are used for publications and similar to guarantee "longevity".
  • Research data: Archiving in ARCHE as a long term strategy for data retrieval
    • Although not initially planed we should really consider this to keep data accessible for a very long time -> we all agreed that we should go this way to keep data accessible for a very long time
  • OpenAtlas backend: till 2023-12
    • This is one of the reason why #1718 (Links to the backend) isn't a valid strategy
  • Presentation site: till 2023-12
    • Transform to a (simpler) static website as a long time strategy
    • Which domain for unique URLs to use for entities on the presentation site? -> the CONNEC team is now aware of the permanent links topic and will discuss/decide which domain to use

Current roadmap

Discussing features on the Roadmap -> discussed features were documented as notes in the features themselves.
