From previous meeting(s)¶
Your new() agenda items¶
(MRB) welcome to our new core members!
please make a PR adding yourself to core.csv in the docs if you have not (https://github.com/conda-forge/conda-forge.github.io/blob/master/src/core.csv)
Long-term video call options?
(MVN) Why not Flatiron zoom any more?
(ED) Voltron is happy to host but google meet is annoying because you have to “allow” everyone to join. Anyone else have a zoom option?
(CJW) NumFOCUS seems to be able to give us a zoom room (I asked them to create it under firstname.lastname@example.org in case we need it)
(MRB) new secrets/keys locations/handling
we’ve needed to clean this up a bit for a while now
now all shared keys are managed in the org secrets
eliminated the use of static tokens nearly everywhere in favor of github app generated tokens
generated token permissions have a small permission scope (basically read/write on repos and github actions triggers)
these tokens expire after one hour
still have static tokens in heroku and staged recipes
will be going through the current tokens and deactivating the ones I can
can we make some of the bot accounts non-admin users?
(FF) NumFOCUS updates
(IF) python 3.10 updates
unvendoring packages on windows
which means most python extensions will not be usable without activating env
_CONDA_PYTHON_SYSCONFIGDATA_NAME is removed
Need conda-build PR for 3.10.0rc1
(CJW) Uwe’s proposal to perform the python migration on 3.10rc1 https://github.com/conda-forge/conda-forge.github.io/issues/1499
(CJW) Packaging-Con call for proposals, sponsorships
The CFP is open until August 30th
Packaging-Con is interested in corporate sponsors
JRG: Asking internally :)
(JL) PEP 668 proposed to improve interop between Python and distro package managers
Related to Conda’s interop functionality (https://docs.conda.io/projects/conda/en/latest/user-guide/configuration/pip-interoperability.html)
JRG: Will ask Filipe (FFY00) if they want to join the calls
(JL) Python bug about adding ability to add 3rd party install schemes
Might be interesting for Conda to support (referenced from Filipe at Quansight)
NUMFOCUS Wish List
(JK) what happened with azure?
(JK) [ ] to email steve at microsoft
Pushed to next meeting¶
cfep-12 Removing packages that violate the terms of the source package
Stalled since May 26, 2020
Active debate about moving to “broken” vs deleting from conda-forge channel
Active vote, ends on 2020-03-11
What were the results of the vote?
Did we hear back from NumFOCUS? they did the legal seminar which is recorded

Move to Issue Tracker¶
[ ] (IF/MRB/MV) intel oneAPI
[ ] (Nikolay) licensing for opencl_rt
[ ] (Nikolay) intelmpi ABI compat w/ mpich
[ ] (MRB/IF) figure out how exactly to package C/C++ compilers
[ ] (MRB/IF) think about fortran ABI
[x] (MRB) make conda-forge compilers room (add people including keith)
[ ] (MB) asking core members to move to “emeritus” status
[ ] TODO: Eric to set up quarterly check-in for all core members to see if they’re interested in remaining “active” or if they want to move to emeritus
Remove emeritus folks from having access to various credentials (api tokens, twitter password, etc.)? This would require a change to the governance doc.
TODO: Think about bringing in JOSS to provide context around how we might best write papers
TODO: Check on Forrest Watters permissions for core
[x] (FF) Outreachy would cost 6500 USD.
Next steps: write abstract and vote on spending of funds.
[ ] (Marius?) Python 2.7 migration
( ) [ ] make a hint
( ) [ ] make an announcement
( ) [ ] make the hint a lint
[ ] Make sure to add the NVBug info to the cudatoolkit package that conda-forge makes (if we make one)
[ ] (ED) Update governance docs with similar voting model as what got put into conda-tools (+3 with no -1 is a pass)
[ ] (SC) Write jinja template to turn institutional partners yaml into a website https://github.com/conda-forge/conda-forge.github.io/blob/master/src/inst_partners.yaml
[ ] (SC) Document what needs to be done to create an OVH account and get access
2020-08-26 Docker hub
[ ] (JK) Check in on Azure build workers to see if they have the docker hub limitation.
[ ] (JK) work with dockerhub to see if we can get OSS status
[ ] Check in again at some point. We haven’t heard back as of 2020-09-23
[ ] Shout-out on twitter at some point. “Thanks forOVHCloud for providing a VM”, etc. (maybe after we ship qt on windows with it?)
[ ] Figure out how to communicate breaking changes to users. Likely should open up an issue immediately for futher discussion. Ping @kkraus, plus capture notes from further up in these meeting notes
[ ] John K. will update the cuda toolkit feedstock on the git repo to note the NVBug link to the internal NVIDIA issue tracker
[ ] Jonathan will update docs to note that some non-exhaustive list of packages (like cuda-toolkit, MKL, etc.)
[ ] Jonathan will review this PR
[ ] (Kale) schedule conda working group
[ ] cfep-10 next steps: CJ to call a vote for feedback
[ ] cfep-06 next steps: Ask staged recipes team to champion this CFEP and move it forward
[ ] jakirkham & CJ-wright to sync on adding CUDA to the migration bot
[ ] (Eric) Scheduling Anaconda <-> conda-forge sync on anaconda.org requirements gathering
Will try and get this scheduled in the next month.
[ ] (Anthony) Reach out to NumFocus to figure out legal ramifications of not including licenses in files.
[ ] (Eric) check internally for funding levels for hotels & flying folks from the community in?
[ ] (Eric) Figure out finances of conda-forge to support themselves?
[ ] (jjhelmus) Open up CFEP for which python’s we’re going to support
[ ] (jakirkham) write a blog post on CUDA stuff we discussed today
[ ] (jakirkham) update docs on how to add CUDA support to feedstocks
[ ] (jakirkham) will open an issue on conda-smithy to investigate Drone issues. (ping the aarch team)
[ ] (ED) Who we are page? Some combination of a FAQ and a who is everyone. FAQ things like:
who’s the POC for CF <> Anaconda, CF <> NumFocus, CF <> Azure
who’s the POC for the various subteams?
Informal information: roles, day jobs, bios, the whole nine yards, why you’re here, etc.
Public or internal? I don’t really care either way. Anyone feel strongly one way or the other?
opt-in to public bios
software carpentry has a large number of instructors and has https://carpentries.org/instructors
some concern about “yet another place to keep stuff up to date”
[ ] (ED) document strategies for reproducible environments using conda-forge
[ ] (UK) Static libraries stuff
[ ] Add linting hints to builds to find them
[x] Recommend how to package them -> CFEP-18
[x] We should write docs saying we don’t provide support and this is a bad idea. -> CFEP-18
