📰 Announcements & FYIs

🚀 OpenJS World Videos are now LIVE! There were a lot of really wonderful sessions and some very special keynotes. In case you missed any of the sessions, you can now view them all live on our YouTube Channel. I loved them all, but some of my favorites included How Not to Save the World with Tech" and this amazing keynote from NASA astronaut Christina Koch. Gotta watch 'em all!

🎯 Collab Summit 2020 Wrap-up: The curtain has also gone down on our first-ever REMOTE collaborator's summit - notes and links to the recordings can be found on the /summit repo under each session proposal here. We're planning a retrospective meeting for this event on July 14, and those who attended or led sessions are kindly asked to fill out this feedback survey!

📹 Participate in our next AMA: The Node Security Working Group will be doing our next AMA on July 8 at 9 a.m. PST. Tune in to our youtube channel to watch live, or join us in the zoom to ask questions directly! As always if your project would like to do an AMA, let Jory or Rachel know!

🗒 Meeting Notes & Recaps

Meeting Notes | Recording | GH issue

  • The first issue we took up was #575, which captures the proposal for the individual membership program and a corresponding pull request. Sara Chipps shared her work and insights gathered from meetings with different stakeholders and the CPC attendees were enthusiastic about this direction. In short, the program would create a very low-cost 'supporter' category which would grant participants benefits like a member-only newsletter*, discounted events tickets, and the ability to purchase member-only swag. Further discussion is encouraged on the PR.
  • Issue #573, Continue CPC current board members until we get board seats sorted and new elections happen, is a proposal from the Collab Summit. The CPC members on the call were supportive of this approach and questioned if we really needed to do anything further to approve. Myles pointed out that this is technically a governance update but that our process should be revised to allow for quicker adoption of simple, unanimously endorsed decisions.
  • Issue #567, incubation process clarifications, had been raised in response to the somewhat rushed need to conduct a final 'vote' to advance AMP and Electron ahead of the announcements at OpenJS World, which took many by surprise. Key stakeholders were not all present to discuss this issue so the group moved on quickly.
  • Issue #565, Was merged and closed - Welcome Divy Tolia as our newest regular CPC member!
  • Several issues were open and on the agenda, but did not have stakeholders ready or able to give updates: #474, OpenJS Collaboration Network, #438, 2nd Director seat- post July 2020, #414, Add Foundation-wide copyright guidance, and #326, Responsible security disclosures.
  • The last agenda item we took up was from the Code of Conduct Repo - #8, Onboarding: Provide explicit feedback on what escalation path is and how to implement it + temporarily address in the Onboarding Checklist. Tierney described the concerns from Node CommComm and the group agreed that a specific meeting about this from the Code of Conduct group was the best next step. Jory has the action item to schedule the meeting. The CPC agenda label was also removed for now.
  • We closed the meeting about 20 minutes early in order to go into a private session - we discussed new project applicants and event feedback.
* The current proposal is for this newsletter to transition to the supporter newsletter. Current newsletter subscribers would remain on the list.
