Another limited activity week with the US shutting down for
Thanksgiving. The most significant change is of course the addition of a
new official OpenStack project, LOCI. LOCI is a packaging project,
providing tooling that can output light, OCI-compliant container images
of OpenStack components:


== Voting in progress ==

Ian Wienand's update to the PTI to remove mentions of
releasenotes/requirements.txt has reached majority and will be approved
by Tuesday next week unless there are late objections posted:


Graham Hayes proposed the addition of the tc:approved-release tag to
Designate, to match its recent addition to an add-on trademark program.

== Office hours ==

To be more inclusive of all timezones and more mindful of people for
which English is not the primary language, the Technical Committee
