          - CentOS builds
               - 6 out of 7 builds were successful. 
               - The one failure was related to a known intermittent build issue.  LP: https://bugs.launchpad.net/starlingx/+bug/1968583 not seen in the last two weeks
          - Debian builds
               - Had the first successful build on Saturday. Working on getting regular builds going.
               - Hitting some resource issues - specifically related to disk space.
               - May need to clean up older releases. 
                    - Agreed to remove build artifacts for stx.2.0, stx.3.0, stx.4.0, ussuri, f/centos
               - May need to only build Debian every other day instead of daily. TBD
- Sanity
          - Sanity is Red due to two LPs:
               -  https://bugs.launchpad.net/starlingx/+bug/1970645
                    - Issue under investigation, but the dev prime is not able to reproduce
               - https://bugs.launchpad.net/starlingx/+bug/1971981
                    - Issue seems related to the nginx/cert-manager upversion on May 3.
                    - The new images are populated in the sanity private registry, but for some reason ansible is still trying to reference the old images.
                    - nginx & cert-manager deploy correctly in multiple dev envs in WR.

Open Requests for Help
- A number of questions from OutbackDingo at gmail.com
          - Intro
               -  Scott joined the community call
               -  Located in Asia
               -  Hosting a virtualized cloud in the Netherlands; Was able to deploy starlingx successfully one year ago in the Netherlands
               -  Now trying to deploy another cloud instance, but having trouble deploying stx.6.0
          - Key Issues
               -  Setting up persistent storage on worker nodes
                    - Want to deploy 6 large nodes w/ TBs of storage on each. Don't want to setup 
                    - Suggestion is to look at using rook
               -  Limit of only 2 controllers
                    - StarlingX doesn't current support more than 2 controllers currently
                    - 6 nodes can be deployed as: AIO-DX + 4 worker nodes
               -  pxeboot env
                    - All nodes (other than controller-0) pxeboot from controller-0
                    - The pxeboot server can be setup for controller-0 if desired. Otherwise, USB boot is also a supported option.
