15:14:26 <morgan_orange> +1
15:14:31 <dfarrell07> #info ed points out that community rep in TAC is so small anything that comes from TAC will be top-down push
15:14:56 <morgan_orange> #info morgan richomme
15:15:40 <dfarrell07> #info brian wants to focus on working on issues we think are most pressing first, like LFN IT, and then after doing that, learning lessons, adjust who is in TAC

15:17:06 <dfarrell07> #info ed has huge issue in LFN with getting large budget line item for IT, not being able to get good insight so not able to reduce efficiently, this is what Ed brought to board recently
15:18:06 <dfarrell07> #info brain, phil talk about being supportive, thinking should go off with workgroup and try to learn from others (like CNFC) for what we could do better in LFN
15:20:51 <kennypaul> #info Sebastian Zechlin, DT
15:28:26 * dfarrell07 fails to take notes for a bit, oops

15:29:10 <kennypaul> #Agreed - table TAC composition for 2 months to work on "more meaty things".
15:30:19 <vmbrasseur> Thanks, kennypaul.
15:32:07 <kennypaul> #action edwarnicke to add infrastructure topic to the TAC topic list
15:33:01 <kennypaul> #info discussion over git vs. gerrit
15:33:34 <morgan_orange> github (or gitlab) versus gerrit...git is fine :)
15:34:44 <ttallgren> +1 for upgrading the documentation system
15:37:02 <morgan_orange> #info edwarnicke suggetss to move TAC discussions from gerrit to github
15:37:12 <kennypaul>
15:39:54 <morgan_orange> #info Catherine asks what would be the role of this github: collect minutes?
15:41:56 <ttallgren> Was there anything else except comparing Markdown vs rst vs readthedocs ?
15:42:08 <ttallgren> Was there anything else on the agenda except comparing Markdown vs rst vs readthedocs ?
15:43:29 <edwarnicke> #link
15:45:27 <vmbrasseur> #info edwarnicke says collaboration tooling changes are necessary if the TAC is going to get to those meaty things. Requirement to use Gerrit is blocking collaboration.
15:47:01 <kennypaul> #action edwarnicke tnadeau to migrate existing TAC docs to git.
15:48:30 <zxiiro-away> Sorry had to drop the call but I would be interested in participating in the working group if one got created.
15:49:00 <zxiiro-away> Regarding investigating CI stuff
15:50:13 <phrobb> #info zxiiro-away volunteers to be on the workgroup evaluating a change to CI for projects
15:55:42 <edwarnicke> #link <- repo moved
15:56:09 <phrobb> #info phrobb asks how best to proceed to evaluate new CI tooling - Shall we have each LFN project go back to their TSCs and describe this TAC effort, and it's goals, and solicit individuals intimate with each project's use of the tooling to help in this workgroup. A roadmap for investigation of the tools and it's impact on each project are first steps, followed by potential methods of transitioning to the new tool chains for each project as
15:56:09 <phrobb> each will be different.
16:00:31 <zxiiro-away> I think the hardest question is how to support projects that require hardware labs.
16:03:00 <edwarnicke> #link <- github issue for listing folks to participate
16:03:15 <morgan_orange> zxiiro-away: +1 and share best practices on CI/CD.
16:04:59 <kennypaul> #action workgroup on project tooling edwarnicke, Trevor B, RandyBias , Mark Berierl, Christophe Closset
16:04:59 <kennypaul> and Alexis de Talhouet
16:04:59 <kennypaul> and Brian Freeman

16:05:14 <edwarnicke> #link <- pr request for 13709
16:06:05 <kennypaul> #action dfarrell07 will solicit input for ODL participation.
16:06:33 <zxiiro-away> kennypaul: and zxiiro? :)
16:07:15 <kennypaul> #action add zxiiro-away to workgroup on infra
