Hello Everyone,

Here is this week's summary of the Technical Committee activities. Sorry, I missed to click send button on Friday and it stuck in my draft.

* As we have new TC members, we checked on the weekly meeting time as per new members availability and decided
to keep the same time (considering the daylight saving change in coming weeks)

the agenda[1] by Mar 9th.

2. What we completed this week:

TC has merged the resolution on release cadence which is discussed in this[3] ML thread.
Dan is planning to update the required documentation and also the communication. We will
