Based on the continuity of our last CORE Office Hours The FreeBSD CORE Team would like to invite you all to a virtual town hall meeting. As mentioned earlier this session is timed at 0200 UTC on 14th October, 2020 geared towards the other part of the World but everyone is welcome to join. See https://wiki.freebsd.org/OfficeHours for details on how to join either a live stream to watch, or an interactive meeting to participate. A link to this agenda (and any updates) will be there as well.
We’ll be discussing the following topics and taking general questions at the end. We’ll have a moderator who will help call on people in the meeting to ask questions (or to offer comments) as well as relay relevant questions from IRC.
a. Git Transition -- To raise awareness, Ed Maste and Warner Losh will be giving a brief presentation about the state of the project’s planned transition to git. They can answer a few questions here, but are also planning an entire office hours on the git transition (tentatively scheduled in two weeks).
b. Recruiting for project teams -- When a new core team takes over, it’s a good time to assess the needs of each of the teams that we have running different aspects of the project, such as administering our machines and helping keep FreeBSD secure. One common theme is the need for more help. We’ll discuss what teams there are, and make a recruiting pitch and answer any questions.
c. Core TODO List publishing -- To continue the openness initiative, the core team will start publishing out TODO list. This will be in addition to the normal meeting minutes and other openness ideas. The new core team would love to hear from the community how to improve our communications.
d. General Questions -- Time permitting, the core team can answer any other questions or concerns the community might have.
