Change OpenStack release naming policy proposal
In today's TC meeting [5], we discussed this topic with Foundation staff and we all
agreed to give the release name process handling to Foundation. TC will not be involved
in the process. The release name will be mainly used for marketing purposes and we will
use the release number as the primary identifier in our release scheduling, automated
processes, directory structure etc. The agreed proposal is up for review[6]

New release cadence open items
1. release notes strategy:
Brian presented the different possible ways to reflect the tick-tock ( hoping this is
the last time I am using these names as we agree to change them, see below ) release
notes combination[7] and we agreed with the 'simple' approach[8]. 

2. release cadence terminology 
With the outcome of the legal check, it is not clear to us that tick-tock words
are ok to use for the new release cadence terminology and in what form/combination.
In TC, we decided to use a different name and 'SLURP' (Skip Level Upgrade Release Process)
is the choice of the majority. I have pushed the patch to reflect the same in the TC resolution[9].

Improve project governance
Slawek has the proposal the framework up and it is under review[10].

New ELK service dashboard: e-r service
Tripleo team joined the TC meeting and we agreed to merge the master and rdo branches
in the elastic-recheck repo. It is completely fine to keep both devstack-based and tripleo focus
things and maintain them collaboratively. The hosting part will be investigated by the dpawlik   

Consistent and Secure Default RBAC
We had our weekly call on Tuesday 10 May and we agreed on the 'service' role part. I will
update the spec for this.

The heat open item is still in discussion and Takashi sent an email asking the feedback about 
the 'split stack' approach, please respond with your thought[11]

While we are discussing the heat/scope things, we agreed to work on the 'new defaults' at least
(separate from scope which will see later). Please find the summary/plan in etherpad L97[12] 

2021 User Survey TC Question Analysis
No update on this. The survey summary is up for review[13]. Feel free to check and
provide feedback.

Zed cycle Leaderless projects
No updates on this. Only Adjutant project is leaderless/maintainer-less. We will check Adjutant's
the situation again on ML and hope Braden will be ready with their company side permission[14].

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
* None
