Notes

Thank you @jbostian!

  • Debian is having problems supporting the S390x architecture, and are suggesting dropping support without someone committing to help by November 27
    • Hardware/platform resources through Marist should be available
    • Finding an owner is the challenge
    • Concern about how a lack of Debian support ripples through the larger OS ecosystem
    • Will impact containerized workloads
    • John to set up a call with Phlipp Kern, and loop in Len Sanatalucia, David Edelsohn, Ingo Adlung, Joe Bostian
  • Review the Project ambassador Program
    • Ambassadors should come from each project, and be an integral part of the group
    • Decided to move ahead, review a set of candidates next month
  • TerseDecompress - reviewed comments from Andrew about remaining involved (he is interested)
  • Github actions for hosted projects is up and running
    • Polycephaly project is beginning to use for CI/CD
    • Others are beginning to use
  • Project reviews
    • Brief reviews from Ambitus, Feilong, GenevaERS, Software Discovery Tool, Polycephaly, Zorow, Mentorship, Zowe
