Agenda / Notes

General Notes

  • Denis agreed to run the meeting, gather and publish notes


  • Mentors always needed
    • Torkild volunteered for one project
  • New committer messaging is old and confusing, send confused committers to Wayne
  • Gunnar: project leads can be on a project as non-committers, which seems odd.
    • Wayne reminds us that PL and Committer are 2 separate roles

Torkild: Github Issues

  • Release planning pages support Bugzilla, but not GH issues
  • Wayne: bug is opened, but no progress yet, perhaps next quarter

Jim: LocationTech update

  • LocationTech forge consolidation was done, nothing major to report, only minor issues
  • FOSS4G coming up in May
  • Interested in how Java 9/10/11 changes impact projects

Denis & Mikael: Infra update

  • Bandwidth for downloads slow, mostly when new bits being mirrored. Perhaps we can provide more bandwidth under those circumstances
  • Gerrit was updated recently, with changes to underlying infra.
    • No plans yet for more resilient setup
  • Hudson > Jenkins migration is complete, releng team working on better CI/CD pipeline technologies to improve build performance under spikes
  • Mikael: Also deployed JCE signing infra, for Cryptography providers
  • Eclipse API: to interface with Eclipse project data, forums, mailing lists, accounts, etc

Action Items

  • No new action items.
