- New team contribution: 
     - From Douglas Pereira: new team is staring to review the stx docs with the goal to come up with a quick installation guide for new developers to get an env setup quickly
     - Also looking at tools like libvirt/qemu for the virtual env. 
     - Greg mentioned that the virtual install guides are not up-to-date.  The plan was to get rid of the virtual install guides and fold them into the baremetal install guides as the difference is very small
     - Agreed that Douglas's team will engage with the stx doc subproject team to sync up and discuss next steps.
