Meeting Agenda

Ping list: gmann, mattoliverau, cmurphy

Standing Items:

Other Items:

  • Rollover of #openstack-101 channel to #openstack-dev channel
  • Forum topic to try to engage and better include operators, but whats the actual idea?
    • (jungleboyj) This is an interesting question. Our First Contact and OUI discussion thus far has focused on what we can do for developers but what needs could we possible fulfill for operators to make their initial experiences with OpenStack better. Perhaps forum time to find out what initial resources/education they wish they had could be helpful.
  • Cleaning up sandbox & sandbox-ci patches
    • Created this phrasing for posting on patches:
     Hello! Thank you for your first patch :) I see that it has gone untouched for quite a while so in an effort   to clean up this repository, I will abandon it. If you would like it to be restored or have any other questions about how to contribute upstream, please reach out to myself ($IRCNICK) or any of the other First Contact SIG members[1] on IRC in the #openstack-dev channel.
