              - also note who is the prime for each area 
           - checkpoint on next week's Community call to see how things are going 

- Intel internal changes (brucej)
    - most of the Intel folks have moved to the IOTG group
    - several of them will *not* be moving to IOTG, so will moving away from StarlingX 
    - this is effective as of yesterday - sanity will continue for a little while (just the automated stuff) 
    - Intel will work on moving the test activity to another group, no definitive timeline for this now 
      - AR: Bruce to determine what the timeline is for having the new group in place 
      - AR: Ada/Yang to assess the immediate-term impact 

- Reference material for StarlingX flock components (Frank): http://lists.starlingx.io/pipermail/starlingx-discuss/2020-January/007404.html
    - per Bruce, where is the long term home for this content?
    - there's a link to this from the developer resources page on the wiki 
    - Yong has shared with the folks in China 
    - Kris will potentially look at adding stuff like this in an appropriate place in the docs 

- Mid-Cycle meetup for the community @ Intel's Chandler (Phoenix AZ) campus.  When can/do we want to do this? (brucej)
    - late Feb, early March?
    - Bruce will propose March 3/4 to the mailing list 
    - we'll set up some kind of registration form for this, maybe an etherpad 

- Standing Topics - time permitting
    - Sanity: all green recently 
    - Reviews needing input
      - Saul: CentOS 8 continuing effort - keep reviewing 
      - discussion about test coverage on the feature branch before we bring it into master 
      - etherpad to track the testing - make sure we've got a comprehensive list of tests that we need to run/pass before merging to master
      - make this a standing topic for this meeting, review the Etherpad (assuming there's a summary on the Etherpad)
      - Saul: pbr versioning reviews - some discussion ensued, Bart to take a 2nd look
