Agenda / Minutes

1 Member List

We don't have an automated reporting tool for members activity. The Top25 list from the issue tracker can tell us good candidates for new members, but don't let us spot inactivity.

We need information from the forum (and other media), too. The Volunteer Engagement Team is working on a solution.

Allon Moritz and Harald Leithner are now members of the Bug Squad. Allon is very active on the tracker, Harald mostly on Stack Exchange, which not had been seen, when he was moved to the honor list.

2 Volunteers Portal

Members were asked to add their address on the Volunteers Portal. It is a legal requirement for voting members.

3 PR Priority List

Top9 List

  1. #17251 is a release blocker

  2. #17837 solves a deeper problem to detect if custom fields are loaded in the form

  3. #17856 getting rid of some deprecated behaviors in PHP 7.2

  4. #18382 updating Composer dependencies, most impactful is our LDAP library getting updated

  5. #18167 microdata

  6. #18141 setup of console application

  7. #18407 because canonical is often a topic

  8. #18364 a reasonable way to deprecate support for hardcoded set of password hashes

  9. #18295 added HTTP status code check feature

There are 10 issues with 2 successful tests that are flagged as "Need Review". We'll go through them, trying to define a strategy for handling them. For example, PR#18239 has 2 successful tests, but is broken. Because of the new situation, the tests should be invalidated, and the test instructions should be extended to cover 'required' and maybe 'readonly'.
