Your new() agenda items

  • (JRG) Support for abi3 Python packages with abi3audit checks?

  • (MRB) cleaning up bots and secrets

    • moving all bot tokens, passwords, etc. out of keybase to 1password
    • going to start removing unused bots
    • will give core team notice just in case before removing specific accounts
  • (HV) openssl 3 timeline

  • (HV) cross-compiling CUDA

    • new effort in staged-recipes is adding 11.8, but we would need 11.2 (quoth Isuru)
    • is there an alternative to ?
    • if not, can we finalize that PR?
    • would help a lot on CUDA+aarch jobs for feedstocks that can cross-compile
      • e.g. arrow now has 16 jobs x 2 abi branches that run into 6h timeout about 50% of the time (c.f. x-compilation: ~1h)
      • arrow-cpp-feedstock/main dropped CUDA+aarch, pending
      • Planning to move forward with conda-forge-ci-setup PR
      • Needs some permission fixes to Docker images
      • In the future, new CUDA packages + cuda-compat could solve this, but not right away
  • (JK) staged-recipes

    • Might be more wonky than it was before, might not.
    • Trouble with Travis (the software)
    • todo
      • automate deletion of empty feedstocks
      • randomly sort them
      • only do 5 at a time
  • (DPC) Reminder: conda-forge google group is being archived at the end of the year.

  • (JRG) gpu stuff

    • starting to work
    • Matt: don't break main on testing feedstock but otherwise go to town
