Engineering Steering Committee Meeting, Oct 12, 2022
Han-Wen Nienhuys, Luca Milanesio, Christophe Pouchet, Saša Živkov
Open vs. closed default settings
The default config grants
read permission on
is practical for development and testing, but not a secure default for
production use. Consensus that more secure defaults would be good;
this could take the form of a init question, “do you want default open
/ default close” setting?
Gerrit 3.7 release
Gerrit RC 0 and RC 1 are out. Luca asks for help with writing release notes.
Gerrit user summit/hackathon
Finding space was hard; end of the pandemic caused a space crunch. Due to space constraints, no open call for participation to the hackathon. Summit is almost fully booked for in-person attendance. Google and SAP may give talks on recent work.
The move to Discord from Slack has gotten positive feedback.
The new format for the community meeting (solicit a specific topic, discussion on that topic) has garnered a lively discussion in the last meeting.
