Deepshikha, thank you for calling the meeting to get this activity going.

Putting a note to the list as a summary of the items discussed. Please
add/modify as needed for completeness.

+ Michael summarized the key issues to consider. These include (a) the
actual project repositories which need to be migrated (b) the workflow
and model to be adopted by the project once Github is the main
repository (and not a mirror) (c) rights and permissions on Github
team/organization to enable doing specific things and (d) integration
work required (scripting, additional tooling and/or monitoring) to
enable the switch

+ Amar, Michael and Yaniv discussed the idea of migrating the
glusterfs repository for a trial run before switching over based on an
iterative learning discussion

+ During the meeting it was agreed that the 3 topics to work on
leading up to the start of the trial phase are (1) a documented
workflow to handle development within Github (blocker item) (2)
discovery of any existing knowledge experience for a similar migration
(not a blocker item) and (3) an estimation of the scripts or tooling

In preparation for the next meeting in 2 week's time (06-Feb,
tentatively) , the following items would be reasonably ready for
discussion. sankarshan will set up the next and subsequent meetings.

+ a proposed workflow including patch merge model. Amar had an earlier
proposal and he'll review the necessity to refresh it in light of best
practices from other projects such as Ansible

+ an enhanced understanding of dates for the start of the trial run in
context of the GA dates for Gluster8. At this meeting the idea is to
do the trial before the Gluster 8 release in order to get enough time
to work through any issues

+ Michael and Deepshikha will also endeavor to work through the topic
to discover any additional tasks/sub-tasks and risks.
