Community Meeting Summary

Last week’s Community Meeting started with a demo of CRI-O supporting Kubernetes 1.10 by Antonio Murdaca. He showed off the alternate runtime, and then discussed whether SIG-Node would move to it as the default (answer: depends on test coverage).

Steve Wong introduced SIG-VMWare, a new SIG working on Kubernetes compatibility with VMware & VSphere. They had there first meeting and published their charter last month. SIG-Windows, explained by Michael Michael, has been busy since 1.9 improving support for Windows containers, including resources, file system stats, Flexv, isolation, and e2e testing. They hope for a stable release to coincide with Windows Server 2019. Former SIG On-Prem has announced that they are demoting themselves from a SIG to a Workgroup/discussion forum.

Test-Infra is disabling the cherrypick-auto-approve munger bot, because nobody ever understood how it worked. Brian Grant, on behalf of the Steering Committee, said they were working on charters, with 6 in process, and explaining sub-projects to SIGs. Finally, Dan Kohn demoed the new CNCF interactive landscape.

Release Schedule

Next Deadline: Feature Freeze, May 24th.

This was week 2 of 12 for 1.11. SIGs need to add their features to the features repo and the feature tracking spreadsheet. The release team also discussed a plan for shortening Code Freeze if all tests are passing by May 18th.
