     - CENGN Mirror Running Low on Space
          - Partially resolved as some stx.8.0 builds were not being cleaned up properly.
          - Still low, but not urgent
     - github Mirroring Issue
          - Email: https://lists.starlingx.io/pipermail/starlingx-discuss/2023-April/014000.html
          - The majority of the mirroring is working now after manually updating the key.
          - The correct / longer term solution is to setup our own zuul configuration project for StarlingX and not piggy-back on openstack
              - Estimate is about 2wks of work
              - Raised in the build project team to determine if there are resources to do this work
              - Story Board Created: https://storyboard.openstack.org/#!/story/2010754
          - Action: Greg to review the requirements for github mirroring to confirm if it's required for all repos or just a subset to meet k8s conformance requirements.
     - Transition from CENGN
          - As discussed in the PTG, CENGN will no longer be able to host the StarlingX builds.
          - Build team is working on transitioning the builds to WR infrastructure.
          - Timing: TBD
          - Status: Progressing. Able to build the main branch builds (iso+container) on a parallel env. Will work on stx.8.0 RC builds next.

Open Requests for Help
- Issue w/ pxebooting a second node on StarlingX
     - Question raised on the community call (Apr 26) by Kevin
     - The initial node installs/boots correctly, but but an identical second node doesn't. This setup is using vmare to run StarlingX in VMs.
     - Status: Open / Greg has some information to share, but isn't sure how to get in touch w/ Kevin
- Build System Setup
     - Question was posted on IRC by Kevin
     - StarlingX documentation has a lot of outdated information. It took a lot of digging to find the right documentation for setting up a build env with minikube.
     - Requested that Kevin open an LP to the doc team and/or send an email to the mailing list w/ more details to the mailing list
     - Status: Open / No email sent to the mailing list yet. Unsure if LP was opened.
