entry). You can find list here:

== Final call on votes ==

We need to make a final call on the Glare project team application for
the Queens cycle. If by the end of day (AOE) on Monday there is no
majority support for it, the application will be denied. So please jump
on that review if you haven't yet:


== Under review ==

Doug proposed a last item for our top-5 "help wanted" list: "champions
and stewards". Please review it at:


A new "OpenStck-Helm" packaging project team (producing Helm charts),
filed for official recognition as an OpenStack team. Please review their
application at:


Monty posted a series of modifications to the PTI (project testing
interface). Please review at:

* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/508693/
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/508694/
* https://review.openstack.org/#/c/509868/

== TC member actions for the coming week(s) ==

Monty should answer the feedback on the supported database version
resolution (https://review.openstack.org/493932) so that we can make
progress there.

John should review Lance's response to his objection on:

== 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
dropped its dependency on weekly meetings. So that you can still get
hold of TC members on IRC, we instituted a series of office hours on

* 09:00 UTC on Tuesdays
* 01:00 UTC on Wednesdays
* 15:00 UTC on Thursdays

For the coming week, I expect the main topic of discussion to be the
ongoing elections, as well as iterations on the exact wording for the
"champions and stewards" top-5 item.
