3. Activities In progress:
TC Tracker for Zed cycle
* With the Zed cycle kickoff[7], I have started the Zed cycle TC tracker by listing all the items we
discussed in PTG but we will add more during the cycle also if something important comes up[8]

Open Reviews
* Seven open reviews for ongoing activities[9].

Drop the lower constraints maintenance
This has been going on for many months, if I remember correctly it was first brought up
in Dec 2021. During those discussions, we figured out that maintaining and testing the
lower constraints has many challenges.  TC discussed all those challenges in Zed PTG and
agreed to drop lower-constraints.txt file and its testing but keep them in requirements.txt
with our best effort. I proposed the TC resolution on this[10], feel free to feedback there if
there is any strong objection in this direction. Also sent it on ML[11]

Consistent and Secure Default RBAC
I summarized the RBAC PTG discussion[12], we did not finish the discussion over the open
question and decided to continue it in RBAC meetings later. I will schedule the next meeting
soon. If you have any other questions than the current one, please add them to the etherpad[13]
Removing the TC tag framework
In TC tag framework, every TC member used to assign a few projects to check their health, needs
from TC etc. It was meant to improve the interaction between TC and PTLs and contact points
for any projects when TC needs it. But it did not go that way and even many of us do not know
if that still exists or not.
With TC weekly meetings and PTG interaction sessions, we anyways are more contacted with leaders
and discussed it in PTG and agreed to remove this framework. I have proposed the removal[14]

2021 User Survey TC Question Analysis
Jay has summarized the TC's user survey in PTG and it is up in gerrit for review[15]. Feel free to check
and provide feedback.

Zed cycle Leaderless projects
Zaqar PTL assigned is merged[16], with that only Adjutant project is leaderless/maintainer-less. We will
check Adjutant's situation again on ML and hope Braden will be ready with their company side permission[17].

Fixing Zuul config error
Requesting projects with zuul config error to look into those and fix them which should
not take much time[18].

Project updates
* Add the cinder-three-par charm to Openstack charms[19]
