[Gluster-devel] Weekly community meeting - Nov 02, 2016

Hi all,

This week we discussed 3 topics (again!).

1. The FSFE etherpad service (where we host the meeting agenda and a
lot other gluster docs) will be shutdown, so we need to find an
alternative. We decided to make use of etherpads as temporary tools of
live collaboration, and using github wikis to permanently record the
document. Our first task is to identify and record known/live
etherpads. Nigel and I will start working on this, with our first
target being the community meeting agenda.

2. Nigel has created a centos-ci job for Glusto, which is nearly ready for use.

3. We continued discussion on 'Recognizing contributors', and we
couldn't arrive at a conclusion again. This discussion will continue
on the mailing lists.

I've pasted the meeting minutes below for easy reference. This will
also be available from a github wiki soon.

I'll be hosting next weeks meeting. See you all next week, same time &
same place.
