TC position on release cadence
You might have seen the ML thread on the release cadence[6]. We discussed it in 
this week's TC meeting so that we can provide the TC stand on this. There are mixed
amounts of opinions on the different proposals like doing 1-year release, no coordinated
release, more releases, mixed LTS release and keeping it same which is 6-month release etc.
One of the key things we discussed is how to improve the upgrade process which is one of
the key points to revise the current release model. Dan made a good proposal on grenade
testing the 'n-1' -> 'n' (current) and 'n-2' -> 'n' (new) so that we make sure 'n' release is 
upgrade-able from 'n-1' as well as 'n-2' release. For that, we need to think about the deprecation
phase to be n+2 release then n+1. Along with that, we can add/improve our upgrade

These are a few ideas we discussed but due to time constraints, we have not concluded yet. We
will set up a separate call to continue the discussion sometime in Jan start(after the Christmas

Yoga testing runtime
We have an agreement now on Yoga testing runtime and keeping python3.6
support in Yoga, you can see the details in this ML[7]
