This is the weekly summary of work being done by the Technical Committee members. The full list of active items is managed in the wiki: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Technical_Committee_Tracker We also track TC objectives for the cycle using StoryBoard at: https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/project/923 == Recent Activity == Approved changes: * add a note about tracking cycle goals after a cycle ends: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/577149/ Office hour logs from last week: * http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/meetings/tc/2018/tc.2018-06-27-01.00.html * http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/meetings/tc/2018/tc.2018-06-28-15.00.html * http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/meetings/tc/2018/tc.2018-07-03-09.01.html In the absence of any feedback about using the meeting bot to record the office hours, we will continue to do so, for now. == Ongoing Discussions == The Adjutant team application is still under discussion. * https://review.openstack.org/553643 project team application Discussions about affiliation diversity continue in two directions. Zane's proposal for requirements for new project teams has stalled a bit. The work Thierry and Mohammed have done on the diversity tags has brought a new statistics script and a proposal to drop the use of the tags in favor of folding the diversity information into the more general health checks we are doing. Thierry has updated the health tracker page with information about all of the teams based on the most recent run of the scripts. * Zane's proposal for requirements for new projects: * https://review.openstack.org/#/c/567944/ * Thierry's proposal to drop the tags: * https://review.openstack.org/#/c/579870/ * Team "fragility" scripts: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/579142/ Thierry proposed changes to the Project Team Guide to include a technical guidance section. * https://review.openstack.org/#/c/578070/1 Chris and Thierry have been discussing a technical vision for OpenStack. * https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/tech-vision-2018 * http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/irclogs/%23openstack-tc/%23openstack-tc.2018-06-26.log.html#t2018-06-26T09:09:57 == TC member actions/focus/discussions for the coming week(s) == Please vote on the Adjutant team application. https://review.openstack.org/553643 Project team "health check" interviews continue. Our goal is to check in with each team between now and the PTG, and record notes in the wiki. * https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/OpenStack_health_tracker Remember that we agreed to send status updates on initiatives separately to openstack-dev every two weeks. If you are working on something for which there has not been an update in a couple of weeks, please consider summarizing the status. == Contacting the TC == The Technical Committee uses a series of weekly "office hour" time slots for synchronous communication. We hope that by having several such times scheduled, we will have more opportunities to engage with members of the community from different timezones. Office hour times in #openstack-tc: * 09:00 UTC on Tuesdays * 01:00 UTC on Wednesdays * 15:00 UTC on Thursdays If you have something you would like the TC to discuss, you can add it to our office hour conversation starter etherpad at:https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/tc-office-hour-conversation-starters Many of us also run IRC bouncers which stay in #openstack-tc most of the time, so please do not feel that you need to wait for an office hour time to pose a question or offer a suggestion. You can use the string "tc-members" to alert the members to your question. If you expect your topic to require significant discussion or to need input from members of the community other than the TC, please start a mailing list discussion on openstack-dev at lists.openstack.org and use the subject tag "[tc]" to bring it to the attention of TC members.
