Hello Everyone,

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

1. TC Meetings:
* TC this week IRC meeting held on Sept 30th Thursday.

section). To know more details, you can check the complete logs @

* We will have next week's video call meeting on Oct 7th, Thursday 15:00 UTC, feel free the topic
in agenda [1] by Oct 6th.

2. What we completed this week:
* Listed the 'Places for projects to spreading the word'[2]
* Removed stable release 'Unmaintained' phase[3]

3. Activities In progress:
TC Tracker for Xena cycle
* TC is using the etherpad[4] for Xena cycle working item. We will be checking and updating
the status biweekly on the same etherpad.
* Current status is: 8 completed, 5 in-progress

Open Reviews
* Five open reviews for ongoing activities[5].

Place to maintain the external hosted ELK, E-R, O-H services
* We discussed about the technical possibility and the place to add the ELK services

* As there is no other infra project than OpenStack has shown the interest
to use and maintain it, we are disucssing where we can fit this in OpenStack. TACT SIG
is one place we are leaning towards. We will continue to discuss it in next TC meeting
and prepare some draft plan. 

Add project health check tool
* No updates on this than previous week.

* We are reviewing Rico proposal on collecting stats tool[7] and TODO of documenting
the usage and interpretation of those stats.

Stable Core team process change
* Draft proposal resolution is still under review[8] . Feel free to provide early feedback if you
have any.

* Elod has raised more issues today[9], that a few projects stable change (even auto generated patch)
are not merged and so does their stable branch doc site is not up. For now, we are fine to auto/single
core approval of those auto-generated patches and proceed to make stable branch doc site up.

Call for 'Technical Writing' SIG Chair/Maintainers
* The technical writing SIG[10] provides documentation guidance, assistance, tooling, and style guides
for OpenStack project teams.

* As you might have read the email from Elod[9], Stephen who is current chair for this SIG is not planning
to continue to chair. Please let us know if you are interested to help in this Doc 

TC tags analysis
* As discussed in the last PTG, TC is working on an analysis of the usefulness of the Tags
framework[11] or what all tags can be cleaned up.

* We are still waiting for the operator's response to the email on openstack-disscuss ML[12].
If you are an operator, please respond to the email and based on the feedback we will continue
the discussion in PTG.

Project updates
* Add the cinder-netapp charm to Openstack charms[13]
* Retiring js-openstack-lib [14]
* Retire puppet-freezer[15]

Yoga release community-wide goal
* Please add the possible candidates in this etherpad [16].
* Current status: "Secure RBAC" is selected for Yoga cycle[17].

PTG planning
* We are collecting the PTG topics in etherpad[18], feel free to add any topic you would like to discuss.
* We discussed the live stream of one of the TC PTG sessions like we did last time. Once we will have more
topics in etherpad then we can select the appropriate one.

Test support for TLS default:

to participate in that testing and help to enable the tls-proxy in gate testing.
