  • Discussion: How can we streamline the meeting agenda/recap posts? Reps have two ideas:
    • Agenda in GitHub, recap on the blog
    • Detailed agenda on the blog, and add notable discussions in the comments section.

Please share your thoughts in this Slack thread. Which of the two options do you think is better, and why? Or, do you have other suggestions too?

  • Project Update News

Until last week, at the end of each meeting, we had a section titled “Other projects” where we would ask project leads for an update. However, some projects move slower than others, and we don’t want to burden folks with excess notifications. The last week, we excluded the on-hold projects from the meeting agenda and add them back when they are resumed. You will find a note about these paused projects on the Team’s Administration GitHub board.
