      Description

      For 2.6 we expect to see several of the older sakai services (possibly, MailArchive, Calendar and Assignments, among others) add columns to database tables as was done for Content Hosting and Assignments in 2.5. This may be to switch from XML to binary-entity serialization. It may also be to add columns to support filtering, ordering and paging of results in the database queries rather than in memory after retrieval from the database. This will require use of a conversion utility to extract values from the existing serialization to populate the new columns.

      Ian Boston suggested that such a utility might keep track of required and optional conversions and help admins manage them. This might include a capability to assess the current state of various tables to see whether certain conversions have been applied. It might also include a user interface (possibly at the command line or through a browser) to report the current status of the conversions and initiate admin actions to manage conversions.
