Build/Test/Release Working Group Weekly Meetup

As a friendly reminder, the next meetup will take place 2020-10-05T15:00:00Z2020-10-05T16:00:00Z.

Here is the agenda:

  • Introductions: I suggested during a previous meetup that we could all introduce ourselves at the beginning of the meeting by posting a link to our summary bio from this forum. As an example here is mine: https://discuss.openedx.org/u/regis/summary Please prepare your bio prior to the meeting :wink:
  • Discuss new Juniper issues, if any
  • Discuss ongoing commitments
  • Additional discussion topics:
    • Koa release: I would like to talk about documentation. As part of our work during the Koa release, we will be creating lots of useful documentation content. These words will end up in Jira, where they will disappear, swallowed by the sands of time and forgotten by all. I would like those words to end in the official docs. However, these docs are spread over multiple repositories and it’s difficult to know what should go where. Is there an ongoing effort at edX to better centralize the docs? Are there people out there who would like to contribute?
    • Update on the new community installation (maybe @arbrandes?)

As usual, please feel free to add items to the agenda.

EDIT: here is the recording: https://us02web.zoom.us/rec/share/UNrFy86KHk6OAxUHfCjViw9grhyiKxtfBuXGcfLZTjinkJG0QbwQsb4X81hmYdPJ.niy6S-tOK3xt6xfX (Password: 4zxNkp%T)

FYI I added a password (it’s “btrwg”) to the Zoom meeting so that we don’t have to deal with waiting rooms. It was updated in the first post of this topic as well as in the calendar. If you use an outdated calendar client (such as Google Calendar) you will have to switch to a more modern alternative or update your own calendar manually.

The next meetup is… today! From 2020-11-02T09:00:00Z2020-11-02T10:00:00Z 5, 2020 5:00 PM → October 5, 2020 6:00 PM .

The next meetup is 2020-11-23T16:30:00Z2020-11-23T17:30:00Z. :warning: Unfortunately I will not be able to attend, as I will be participating in the core committers retrospective. Could someone please take my place as an organizer? Maybe @pdpinch? Silly me, you’re also on the CC program… @sambapete maybe? EDIT: we decided to move the meeting by 30 minutes.

Here is the agenda:

  • Discuss new Juniper and Koa issues, if any (see the BTR board)
  • Discuss ongoing commitments
  • Start assigning Koa issues for resolution: we need to actually open PRs to resolve existing issues.

The next meetup will take place 2020-12-07T16:00:00Z2020-12-07T17:00:00Z That’s today! This will be the last meetup before the Koa release, so I expect that we will have to make some arbitration decisions.

Here is the agenda:

  • Discuss new Juniper and Koa issues, if any (see the BTR board ).
  • Discuss ongoing commitments.
  • Decide which unresolved issues (if any) should block the Koa release.

If you are involved in the Koa release and are awake at this time, please join! We will need input from all contributors.

The next meetup will take place on 2020-12-14T09:00:00Z2020-12-14T10:00:00Z. Now I know that you’re all hungover from all the Koa celebreations, but the show must go on, you know.

Here is the agenda:

  • Discuss the status of the Koa release: pending issues, newly discovered issues, if any (see the BTR board .
  • Discuss ongoing commitments.
  • Open mic:
    • What’s next for Open edX? We want to foster contributions from new developers and companies. Right now we depend on the goodwill of a few individuals who agree to give their time for free. How can we better incentivize contributions? Are Open edX companies interested in contributing in exchange of
      increased visibility, in the forums, the Open edX blog or elsewhere?
    • Any other topic you’d like to discuss.

Happy Monday! Our next meetup is today 2021-01-18T16:00:00Z2021-01-18T17:00:00Z. Here’s the agenda:

  • Discuss new Koa issues, if any: see the BTR board .
  • Discuss ongoing commitments.
  • Discussion:
    • New working group leader election: Adolfo R. Brandes (@arbrandes) from OpenCraft applied to the position and I am supporting his application. If his selection is not challenged (for instance by a competing candidate) then Adolfo will take over the group in the coming days.

EDIT: here is the recording: Passcode Required - Zoom (Password: ?^5*QaST)

Brief summary of 18 January meeting:

  • BTR-6 reviewed and merged by Ned Batchelder (@nedbat).
  • BTR-43, ADR: Tutor as replacement for edx/configuration and Tutor maintainters program.
    We discussed what would be the process of edx/configuration replacement. It was decided that if the ADR goes through, Lilac will be working both with Tutor and the deployment playbooks. Lilac will be a transition release before the end of edx/configuration support.
  • New working group leader election.
    Adolfo R. Brandes (@arbrandes) shared roadmap and strategy to address big issues of the working group. You can read and discuss the proposal here. As far as I know, no other candidates applied for this role, so if no objections will be raised, he’ll be hosting 1 February meeting.
