Hello Everyone,

Here is this week's summary of the Technical Committee activities.

1. TC Meetings:

section). Meeting full logs are available @

* Next week's meeting is video call on 2nd Dec, Thursday 15:00 UTC, feel free the topic on
the agenda[1] by 1st Dec.

2. What we completed this week:
* Add ProxySQL repository for OpenStack-Ansible[2]
* Mark 'Technical Writing' SIG 'complete' as it is merged into TC [3]
* Rename ‘Extended Maintenance’ SIG to the ‘Stable Maintenance’ [4]
* Retire training-labs repo [5]

3. Activities In progress:
TC Tracker for Yoga cycle
* This etherpad includes the Yoga cycle targets/working items for TC[6].

Open Reviews
* 8 open reviews for ongoing activities[7].

Yoga testing runtime
We updated the Yoga testing runtime to move from CentOS stream 8 to CentOS stream 9
and so drop the py3.6[8]. But while updating projects to drop py3.6, and discussion on
whether we should change 'python_requires'>= 3.8 in setup.cfg, another (but good)
discussion started on ML about whether we should continue testing py3.6 and support CentOS
stream 8 and 9 both in yoga which is what RDO community plan is[8]. After discussing on
ML and then with Alfredo Moralejo on TC IRC channel, we have a potential way forward
on this which I have summarized on ML thread[9]. I will keep that open to get feedback
or any objection to the proposed plan and accordingly we will conclude it early next week.
I hope I have summarized the discussion here if not please read the ML thread for this.

Fixing Zuul config error
If your project is listed in zuul config error, please start planing to fix those[10]

RBAC discussion: continuing from PTG
After last week meeting discussion, we are almost ready with this goal, if you would like
to review the current direction as well as the schedule, please review it[11]. Next plan is to
merge the proposed goal and then select it ASAP as m-1 is already passed for Yoga cycle.

Community-wide goal updates
* Two goals are proposed currently and under review.
** RBAC goal is pretty much in good shape now, feel free to review it[11]
** 'FIPS compatibility and compliance' [12].

Adjutant need maintainers and PTLs
We are waiting to hear from Braden, Albert on permission to work in this project[13].

New project 'Skyline' proposal
* TC is still waiting for skyline team to respond on open queries[14].

TC tags analysis
* TC agreed to remove the framework and it is communicated in ML[15].
