I spoke with Rick ( @rgerkin ) a few days ago, and he gave me an introduction to SciUnit, it's capabilities and how to implement it, including some necessary next steps, which I am in the process of rendering into Github issues.
@travs since validation/testing is an issue that cross cuts several sections, we should probably have a paragraph or two in the unified roadmap docs above the individual repo discussion that talks about it and sciunit, and makes links out that stuff, within the ‘high-level overview'
@VahidGh Got it. Well it seems to me then that there should be a milestone somewhere to build a ‘Hello World’ example in python of doing the fitting process, and it is up to whomever spends time on it to either reuse Neurotune or build it from scratch. But emphasis should be on having documentation be such that other people can run it. Agreed?
That HeuristicWorm repo is close to that but it is in C++ and has zero documentation
@VahidGh It occurs to me that there is no optimization/fitting milestone in the Github repo yet. If there isn't somewhere you already track these issues, I will create it now, and we can add issues to it as we go.
Also, regarding the issue you mentioned a couple minutes ago "We should make an issue under channelworm and under the Modeling Ion Channels from Patch Clamp Experiments milestone to make that page", does #17 constitute this?
So, next steps (and @travs I’m relying on you here to have taken note of all this), we’ll create these issues, we’ll set up another session to do this again in about a week with the three of us at least, and we’ll get going on filling in the blanks on the issues in the mean time
