  • NOLA - Sumana has done more prep and local recruiting. 30ish people will likely attend.
  • India - Sumana to talk to Alolita about her role in this.

Commit Access - Sumana is getting access to directly give people access. Also working out how to make the process appropriately open. Recruitment/encouragement - Sumana and Mark have been shepherding people into activities. May want to teach a class on MediaWiki on CodeLesson Monthly report - on hold this week. May start next week depending on AOSA progress. Communication support - launched the fundraiser blog. Comm meeting later this week. Staff photos - 11:30a scheduling meeting, over 50 photos 1.18 deployment - mopup mostly done. Mark hasn't checked the bugs today. "Still a significant amount of small things to be cleaned up." IE8 bug fixed. No ETA for tarball release Recruiting/hiring - QA Lead interviews ongoing. Code review meistering - now appropriate for Mark to go back to two-month-old FIXMEs & nag them?

   When we move to git - how will we deal with existing FIXMEs?  Well we can't move to git till we get to 0 FIXMEs

question: how will we work with tarballs afer 1.19? Labs?

   will probably be some changes in how we do version numbering?  Release #s matter more for tarballs than for deployments. For deployments we will probably use monthnames & week numbers.
