🗒 Meeting Notes & Recaps

Meeting Notes | Recording | GH issue

  • We started with an issue from the /summit repo, #249, Travel Fund Questions for Project Community Members. Jory provided some background for discussion and the group determined that the next best step is to open a PR with the initial guidelines that were identified in the issue.
  • On issue #469, Populate the Code Of Conduct Panel, the group confirmed that the next steps were to continue with outreach to the Board, Marketing, CPC and project communities.
  • The next few issues, #414 Add Foundation-wide copyright guidance, #326 Responsible security disclosures, #185 Add admin policy docs, and #90 Project Directed Funding, all had minimal updates with little progress being reported at this time.
  • We moved on to discuss issues from the standards repos. #58, Chartering the standards team, standards wg members reported that they planned to work on the necessary documentation at the meeting later that afternoon. Joe also committed to working on the relevant pieces from the Admin Policy docs.
  • #43, Joining the Unicode Consortium, Kris reported that the there were no objections from the Board and Brian will start the application.
  • Because we made it through the planned agenda items quickly, we took up an ad hoc discussion of #472, Opening Nominations for next year's voting CPC members. Eemeli brought it to the group's attention that the March 31 term-end would be here soon, and we need to open a nomination period of 2 weeks to select new representatives from impact, at large & growth members. The group discussed reaching out and ensuring that participation expectations were set accordingly. Jory volunteered to draft an announcement to go out on projects' repos.
