Bob Dahlberg shared that the mentorship program has expanded quite a bit since last year, with spring, summer, and fall sessions, along with a Google Summer of Code potential. There is a continual need for projects for these mentorships, please submit your mentorship projects at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1jSQ6Adl7-vDoVZ-dWhc4sD4GQXxikBwImY418Ge5gJg/edit?usp=sharing
John M indicated Open Mainframe Project was not accepted as a GSoC organization.
Gregory MacKinnon reviewed the proposal revisions to the project lifecycle and TAC processes. Generally TAC members liked the changes. There were some questions on defining what being based on commercial software meant, John suggested that the principles document be a way to resolve that. TAC members agreed to discuss via mailing list and come back to the next TAC meeting to approve.
John asked if any projects wish to take part in Google Season of Docs that they comment on that GH issue.
Sam Golob provided a very thankful feedback to the TAC on the project impacts and growth since coming into Open Mainframe Project.
Working towards out first release: This month we worked on different offerings for installation and testing, putting final touches on the workbench with regards to security password issues and have decided on documentation tooling. We are also making progress on poc.
Zowe shared some updates on releases and progress.
