Announcing the Deprecation Working Group

Hi folks!

I wanted to invite anyone interested in deprecation work related to the Open edX platform to the Deprecation Working Group. This was previously an internal edX working group, but with the acquisition and separation from TCRIL, this seemed like the perfect time to start making it a more open and community-focused group.

Our current areas of interest are: the future of Elasticsearch, clearing off some of the long-standing tickets on the DEPR Board, and ensuring folks have the resources they need to feel confident that they can remove something.

We meet once every two weeks on Tuesdays. You can investigate our calendar of meetings to keep up with when they’re happening. Feel free to drop in when you have time or interest and to add things to our meeting agenda when you have something to discuss.

We are on Slack in the #depr-slash-n-burn channel if you want to talk deprecations asynchronously.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns or suggestions. I hope to see you around!


This is a reminder that this meeting is happening today at 3pm Eastern. TIme zone converter.

New Year, New Us. There’s a new page for our meeting agenda if you want to keep up with what we’re doing and want to add something to talk about in the future.
