Open Reviews
* Six open reviews for ongoing activities[6].

Direction on running FIPs goal/jobs
As you might have seen the FIPs work from Ade_lee and adding FIPs jobs
in the check/gate pipeline which is not stable at this stage. We in TC meeting
along with Ade_lee discussed the direction on making jobs stable and until then
how we want to run jobs so that we do not overload infra resources with a lot of
non-voting/unstable jobs.

We agreed to run those as periodic (and experimental to trigger them manually) to
make/check their stability [7]. Based on the job run data, in PTG we will discuss further 
on adding them as voting and selecting it as a goal.
Zed cycle Leaderless projects
We have 14 PTL assignments merged and 2 are in progress(Trove and Zaqar) [8]. With that
only one project left to assign a leader (Adjutant) and we will wait until the end of March for
Braden to get permission to maintain it[9].

PTG Preparation

Dropping tags framework
part1 of this is merged[12], part-2 of updating release script and other tags
migration is under-progress.

TC position on release cadence
Dan has sent the overview and things changed as per the new release model [13]. The next plan is:

* Dan will explain/discuss it further in TC+PTL sessions on Monday [14].
* Projects can discuss it (from their project point of view) in their PTG sessions and collect the queries if any.
* Join TC sessions on Thursday/Friday (I will schedule and update the exact time slot) to discuss those
queries or plan the remaining work.

Fixing Zuul config error
Requesting projects with zuul config error to look into those and fix them which should
not take much time[15].

Project updates
