News You Can Use

"Also, keep making your work. With your work, remind us to reflect, to think, and to be as we should be in the world. Evoke, provoke, disturb, and distress. Disorient, reorient, center, and re-center. Design and build a better world. Be good citizens as you carry on your work. The world needs artists, designers, and educators, and your work, more than ever." David Nelson, MassArt

🗒 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. There was no real update - we are seeking volunteers to issue the PR to close this out.
  • #476, Projects with Windows and Mac Installers, Jory reported that she had opened and shared a survey with the projects to capture this data. The survey is still open for responses and projects can fill that out here.
  • Issue #474, OpenJS Collaboration Network, was discussed a bit more. Michael suggested that we have enough to identify next steps and will remove this from the agenda until those are ready for review.
  • Issue #472, OpenJS Collaboration Network, was closed because the official call for nominations was opened in issue #488.
  • On issue #469, Populate the Code Of Conduct Panel, Robin reported that she would be doing more direct outreach as initial calls for participation had not garnered a diversity of participants. Joe also volunteered to do more outreach into the node community for participants.
  • The next few issues, #414 Add Foundation-wide copyright guidance, and #386 Add Post-Graduation Checklist, did not receive an update as their champions did not have time to work on them.
  • Marcin and Michael gave an update on #326 Responsible security disclosures. Marcin has opened PR #489 that documents the progress and raises several questions for us. Our goal is to get to a minimum, consistent standard across the projects. Projects are encouraged to share their thoughts and needs on the PR.
  • Joe reported that work on #185 Add admin policy docs, was moving forward and had a lot of help. People are encouraged to review the PR and catch broken links, name updates, etc. Joe plans to merge this in soon as it has been opened for the required time period with no objections.
  • #90 Project Directed Funding, got an update from the Board. The board has approved the acceptance of additional funds from members to direct to specific projects. Details were shared on Tuesday's public board session and will soon be posted to the website. The Board is still working through the process of funds that may be contributed from crowdsourcing.
  • We moved on to discuss issues from the standards repos. #58, Chartering the standards team, standards wg members reported that they expected to finish their scope work in during their meeting and open a PR.
  • Finally on #43, Joining the Unicode Consortium, Robin reported that this was approved, the application was submitted, and we are waiting for a notification of acceptance from the Unicode Consortium.
