and clarifications.

== Voting in progress ==

Monty's patch updating shade team metainfo is still missing a couple of


Doug Hellmann proposes to round up our top-5 "help needed" list with
goal champions. His proposal is still short of a couple of votes:

* 01:00 UTC on Wednesdays
* 15:00 UTC on Thursdays

For the coming week, I expect reports around the cross-community
discussions that happened at KubeCon.
