- Release schedule for 5.1
- Patches from Netronome
- TSC/TC Elections: voting now for two members -vs- voting now for all TSC
- Tools for Release Notes - Ed Ting
- 5.1 release review
- Dev complete is now November 15th
- Release targeted for December 15th
- Discussion of smartNIC offload, licensing and code changes
- There might be some legal issues with whoever distributes the binary but it seems it doesn't affect TF community. Can we get feedback from LF's legal expert on Friday's meeting?
- About CI we need a 3rd party CI that will require each vendor's hardware (which is fine and expected) but there is some discussion on how this will integrate with the rest of the CI.
- There are questions about documentation. Frikke from Netronome said that they can provide it.
- Joseph brought up the question of tainted kernel. (Joseph can you clarify your concern here?)
- Eyal raised the point that there is a tension between having the community work on a common interface, and enabling vendor-specific interfaces which may reduce the motivation for a common industry standard. He added that it is understood that it will take time to develop the common interface, and that creates pressure for interim (vendor-specific) solutions.
- Jan raised the point that this approach would be the first proposal for the full offload, and would enable OpenStack work to begin sooner.
- Joseph proposed that the entire TSC be voted on - not just the replacements. A vote is needed on Joseph's proposal.
- Paul pointed out that we do not have a list of who voters are. We have rules in the by-laws, but have not applied the rules to create a list of people.
- The official by-laws are in a PDF, per Casey (no longer editable, of course). It was agreed that this should be posted in a conspicuous location.
