📰 Announcements & FYIs

💬 Join us on the JS Holodeck! We're doing another "virtual water cooler" session to hang out and be unproductive together, virtually. This Friday, April 3 join us at 19:30 UTC on zoom - call details will be shared in the #general channel on Slack.

😷 OpenJS World, Collab Summit, & Covid-19: The Foundation is actively developing contingency plans and testing out new virtual platforms in order to move the event online if need be. There are many challenges, and we appreciate all the feedback and input the community is providing. As always, continue to check for the latest updates. We are recommending that those who were planning to utilize the travel fund program wait to purchase lodging and airfare until May 1.

📣 Call for Collab Summit Proposals: This year, we're organizing session proposals by track: New Contributors, Project Session, Cross-Project Sessions, and Ad Hoc. We're also looking for input on from projects on how to handle a possible 'virtual' collab summit given the pandemic situation. Please take a look at the /summit repo and open an issue to propose a session or share your thoughts on backup plans. We're looking to get all the pre-planned sessions on a schedule by the end of May. Pretty please, with a cherry on top, let us know what you'd like to propose!

👏 Test out thanksbot: We added a new Slack integration, a bot that lets you share appreciative messages and rolls them all up to display in a weekly digest. The goal is to help surface appreciation for the unseen things we're doing to support each other in the community. I hope you'll test it out and let us know what you think!

🎬Call Workshops for OpenJS World - If you'd be interested in delivering a 60-90 minute workshop for your project, please let us know! Ping Dylan Schiemann in Slack for details.

📺 Catch our next AMA with the Node TSC! Join us TODAY for the next AMA series with the Node TSC members. Use this form to ask a question, and then tune in on YouTube today at 16:00 UTC!

🗒 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. Divy's PR #492 is just about ready to ship, pending a few last bits of cleanup.
  • Joe opened issue #504, Voting members chosen by regular members, to get clarification on the process by which the Regular Members nominate up to 2 Voting Members. As this is the first official election cycle for all voting members, the process is as yet untested. The group elected to pursue this issue once the elections for non-impact projects have been completed.
  • Brian gave an update on #501, Self-managed Maintainer Directory, and gave a demo of how it works. The tool will allow project maintainers to manage their rosters and mailing lists, while keeping this information transparent to the foundation. There was a good deal of discussion about how it works, effects on lists like the CoC moderation list, and how public email addresses would be. The group decided to continue that discussion on the issue.
  • Issue #488, Call for nominations for voting CPC reps, was updated to include the nominees. We have 6 nominees for 2 spots from the non-impact projects, and the next step will be to run an election for those folks. Candidates are also opening issues on the repo to share candidate statements - projects are encouraged to read those. Joe and Jory will work together this week to provide directions for project maintainers on how to vote. Related, Eemeli volunteered to document the timeline and process for next year so we can execute this in a more timely fashion.
  • Issue #482, Webhint Project Charter Review, people were encouraged to +1 the charter, and the issue is expected to close soon.
  • Issue #474, OpenJS Collaboration Network, Michael gave a very brief update that he has continued to research different questions that have been raised to improve the proposal.
  • On issue #469, Populate the Code Of Conduct Panel, no updates were provided.
  • Issue #414 Add Foundation-wide copyright guidance, no updated was provided.
  • Issue #386 Add Post-Graduation Checklist, the Board vote for this is underway and we expect to close this out soon.
  • Issue #326 Responsible security disclosures also didn't get a big update but Michael Dawson will have an update for us next week.
  • We moved on to discuss issues from the standards repo. #58, Chartering the standards team, will land very soon as the document has been approved and has been opened the required number of days for our governance document.
  • We closed the meeting with 10 minutes to spare in order to discuss some items that needed to be wrapped up in private session.
