Community team update – 07-08-2020

The Community Team meets twice a month, first and third Thursday, at two different times to cover different timezones. As there has been a long gap (again :/) after latest update and lot’s have happened after that, I’ll just reference our latest meeting another most important news.

Deputy updates

As usual, Community Team members are busy doing their job. No blockers, but a lot for things to do. Even small contributions from existing deputies are much appreciated and we warmly welcome all new contributors interested in becoming deputy! Coronavirus situation has affected us a lot and caused extra work.
