Open meetings

The technical community hosts an open meeting monthly on Wednesdays rotating between 08:00 AM PDT and 17:00 PM PDT. Everyone is welcome to participate via Zoom. An initial agenda will be posted to the mailing list earlier in the week, and everyone is welcome to propose additional topics or suggest other agenda alterations there. Minutes are posted to the mailing list and minutes from past calls are archived to the wiki for those who are unable to join the call.
