Notes on the progress of the Hydra 7 + Blacklight 5 + Boostrap 3 + Rails 4 Upgrade

Currently all tests pass with all components upgraded.  Tests were made to pass and some of the changes required to make tests pass still need to be reflected upon.  A probably incomplete list appears below.

Still left to be done:

  1. Run through the non-automated tests
  2. Examine Blacklight and remove unneccessary overrides
  3. Any more changes to handle cascading validations in has_many associations
  4. Think about or disable turbolinks

UI upgrade progress

So far it seems that upgrading our interface to use Bootstrap 3 means replacing all of the span# classes with col-md-# or col-sm-#. This will give us greater control over how the elements on the page react to being sized differently.
