Here are the highlights of the meeting:

Meeting Agendas and Summaries

Many components that hold regular meetings have been posting agendas and summaries more regularly to start the year. This seems to have resulted in a slight uptick in attendance for some components, and many non-attendees have expressed an appreciation for this increase of posts as it helps them stay informed of what is being worked on and discussed.

Moving forward, the media component will work to be more consistent with both agenda and summary posts. @desrosj suggested having an official note taker to write the summary post during the meeting. This approach, in his experience, greatly decreases the time it takes to compile the post.

5.1 Items

The only known remaining 5.1 task for media is for @joemcgill to write a dev note for #45707.

5.2 Priorities

Meeting attendees worked to scrub the list of media tickets currently in the 5.2 milestone with the goal of ensuring each ticketticket Created for both bug reports and feature development on the bug tracker. has an owner. #44675, #36661, #42826, and #43524 all met that criteria. All but #42826 were assigned owners.

An upcoming meeting will focus on 5.2 priorities more generally.
