I've not commented on this list for quite some time, but I have continued to track the OSP progress and conversations on this list.  

I continue to participate in faculty and academic conversations where curricular aspiration needs tools like OSP that span courses, years, and degree tracks, yet the very complexity of doing that as a multi-purpose tool is quite challenging (as we all know).  To my knowledge, as a community, we still have a very modest base of investment going into specific OSP work relative to efforts that improve Sakai 2.x in general and Sakai 3.

Charles...and others...is our pace on things like OSP performance and functionality mostly a resource gap?  A skills gap in sufficient levels of the right skills on the project?  A functional requirements gap in clarity of what needs to be done next?

Perhaps it is time for a renewed conversation of these on this list, and I'll be the first to apologize if I'm just behind on not knowing the status of all of this.

Subject: [Portfolio] performance

We're in the process of bringing up 2.7 in production. Tests before we open it to users show serious performance problems in portfolios. It gets better over time, as data gets into the database cache. But initially it took several minutes to bring up "select content and share portfolio." I guess performance is getting better over time, but OSP is still barely usable, in my opinion.
