Ideas for combining calendar items

  • Having all items in the calendar would be excellent
  • Releases, working groups, virtual meetups, working groups, etc.

What should What’s Happening include?

  • Automate as much as possible: scrape the calendar, note anything about Salt Air or The Hacks, etc.

Any updates on whether native minions or the delta proxy will be open sourced?

  • No updates just yet.

SEP feedback: how are certain SEPs accepted when there is little feedback (even if all negative), and other SEPs are dropped when there is little feedback?
