   Format change proposal:
   - Check the bug <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1564149>
      - Provide feedbacks
         - We want to do a big bang format change with clang-format.
         - Which format should we start with as base?
            - Samples present in repo
            <https://github.com/nigelbabu/clang-format-sample>. *NOTE*:
            Samples generated with indent as 4 spaces.
            - Google Style Guide
            - LLVM Style Guide <http://llvm.org/docs/CodingStandards.html>
            - Mozilla Style Guide
            - WebKit style guide <https://webkit.org/code-style-guidelines/>
            - Chromium style guide
         - When do we want to make this change? Before the 4.1 branching
         seems like a good time to make vast changes.
         - AGREED to do this prior to 4.1

   Gluster’s Adoption of *GPL cure period enforcement*
   - What is it?
      - How to go about implementing it?
         - Intended patch here
         - The Commitment looks like this
      - Next steps are to announce this to the lists and implement the same
      into the repository (possibly this week or early next week)[AI: Amar]

   Automation Update:
   - Run regressions with brick multiplex directly from Gerrit now with a
      keyword rather than hacky temporary review requests. Keyword is ‘run
      brick-mux regression’. Example: https://review.gluster.org/#/c/19734/
      - More automation moving to Python so we have the ability to write
      unit tests. If you are going to write a complicated shell script
as a test
      runner, please get approval from CI component maintainers.
      - We’ve been testing Facebook’s distributed test runner and have
      managed to get it working. Time for regression drops with every
new machine
      added to the pool. Targetting a few weeks to bring it to production.
         - Test infrastructure has some minor fixes from FB, so need a sync
         up meeting on the same [AI: Nigel]
         - We can factor in test run times to achieve better overall
         results, and keep workers equally busy
      - Github Label check is now enforced:
         - Need help from others to identify the needs for going to give
         the flag.
         - As ‘ndevos’ asked, we need to highlight this in Developer Guide
         and other places in documentation.
         - Can we fix the ‘gluter spec’ format and ask people to fill the
         github issues in that format? So that it becomes easier to
give the flags.

   [Handled Already]Regression failures
   - trash.t and nfs-mount-auth.t are failing frequently
      - git bisect shows https://review.gluster.org/19837 as possible
      - Need to resolve soon as some critical patches are failing regression

   Release timelines:
   - Can we extend branching out by a week or two? to compansate for github
      flag enforcement?
         - Target GA date should remain same.
         - Things we want for 4.1
            - clang formatting
            - Github flag enforcment for all features
         - We branch out later, but still release at the same time.
         - No concerns during meeting. Shyam to announce.

   Round Table:
   - kkeithle - comment-on-issue test is (still) broken. E.g. see
      https://review.gluster.org/#/c/19871 Can we please get this fixed?
         - This is working as intended. Please see automation updates
      - kkeithle - For the record, I’m opposed to any kind of bulk reformat
      of the source. In my experience this just complicates porting changes
      between branches. And isn’t it also going to break git blame history?
      - Nithya - Can we split experimental xlators into it’s own package
         - AI: Get experimental xlators in a separate package. Shyam will
         work with Kaleb, et al
