[x] intros for new folks on the call
[x] (FF) budget
Whenever updated numbers land, please screenshare and show the budget.
Link is in Keybase (numfocus_spreadsheets.txt)
[x] open votes
[x] 2022 Outreachy / GSoC
Ask each week: Any interested parties in owning this?
If we want to do outreachy again we need a champion - Filipe can’t do it next year. Same with GSoC.
GSoC is free to us
Outreachy costs us $$ ($6500). $6k for student, $500 for admin
Some interest from Jannis - he and Filipe will chat about possibly handing off
From previous meeting(s)¶
Your new() agenda items¶
[x] (IF): Running our own CI and Terms of Services (TOS)
Drone just killed all our jobs and new ones are not queued anymore
We sent https://docs.google.com/document/d/14DhgcVug0l3pgl6bLoK2DiCjEi3iQBU8JEqc-Fff5pg/edit to NumFOCUS.
TOS - asked numfocus if we are liable for people doing builds on this CI
Julia runs one and will reach out to NumFocus if/when something bad happens
If / when NumFocus comes up with a TOS, we need to adopt it.
Change URL from drone.conda-forge.org. Proposals:
Set up monitoring
Quantstack is setting up grafana for the mirror
What is stored in the sqlite DB?
What happens if the server crashes?
Where do the logs go?
[ ] (WV): TensorFlow-GPU ready to go, just need to decide if GPU should get prio over CPU?! *
[ ] (CHL): Any updates/improvements needed for anaconda.org? (Context: needed to plan internal development work for 21Q4, 22Q1)
(IF): ability to modify the instructions – change the “To install this package with conda run one of the following: …” messages; e.g., squash (default) comments about broken labels.
(IF): repodata patches for labels
(MRB): faster CDN sync
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
(MRB) master to main move (https://github.com/conda-forge/conda-forge.github.io/issues/1162)
everything done except feedstocks, releases, conda-smithy, and our github actions
releases is broken, opened an issue with github
some options for feedstocks
make sure to change the upload on branch key
[x] (MRB) make an announcement on how to update local clones (moved to the issue above)
[x] (MRB) make sure to update upload_on_branch (moved to the issue above)
[ ] (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 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)

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

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
