  • Marko Obrovac joined the Technical Committee. We are looking forward to working with him. Welcome Marko!
  • Last Call: RFC on imported user names <>. After the public discussion on November 15, it was agreed that this RFC should enter the last call period. If no pertinent concerns remain unaddressed by November 29, this RFC will be approved for implementation.
  • Next week’s RFC discussion: Bump PHP requirement to 7.0 in MW 1.31 <>. This is a reiteration of the RFC discussion from a few weeks ago, which ended with a last call for the proposal to go to PHP 5.6 for MW 1.31. The last call did not lead to approval, due to a suggestion made by Anomie, namely to go for a subset of PHP 7 that is supposed by hhvm in default mode, without the PHP7 flag set.
