Vesuvius Modules Without Support, and Therefore Deprecated

During 2010, the US National Library of Medicine (or its GSoC students) was the only active contributor to the Vesuvius trunk. As of January, 2011, any modules unsupported by NLM have been removed from the trunk. These are considered deprecated, unless some individual or organization wishes to come forward and take responsibility for reviving specific modules. While NLM disinterest was the main reason for deprecation, certain modules had additional reasons, among them:

  • Replacement by another module or modules
  • Security vulnerabilities
  • Incompatibility with subsequent changes to database structure or other modules
  • Experimental in nature
  • Limited or unreliable functionality

For a module to be re-included in the trunk, someone must come forth, publicly claim ownership, manually re-merge the module with the trunk, and take responsibility for functionality and quality. Code for deprecated modules remains here on launchpad.

Deprecated Modules from the Krakatoa Release

Deprecated modules (discussed further on the Krakatoa page) are:

  • Home (home) - was required by framework; now, Resources module defines contents of landing page
  • Situation Mapping (aka Situation Awareness) (sm; previously gis)
