Issues Reviewed

https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/99648

QA for plasma should be done. Needs staging for 20.09 to be merged https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/pull/99621. GNOME still needs to be QA'd properly.

https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/94011

Needs new issue, not a blocker.

https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/84634

Fix to be committed @worldofpeace

https://github.com/NixOS/nixos-homepage/issues/416

Eelco made a fix so that the endpoint would be available. https://github.com/NixOS/nixos-channel-scripts/commit/f8db1d7bf9b902086d3a2b1a77bfa4c08fac3733 Needs work.

https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/95765

Release notes still need work. Also feedback from the marketing team and some extra proofreading. @worldofpeace mentioned that, along with Q.A of the ISO images, we need a formal Q.A team for the proofreading.

@worldofpeace decided outside the meeting to make an issue to verify the release notes in vein of https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs/issues/82777

https://github.com/NixOS/nixos-homepage/issues/448

"The marketing side of the release" basically. @garbas wasn't present in the meeting so most things are yet to be determined where they are.

Work needed:

  • Release announcement
  • Release notes with channel-diff info?

🎯 GO / NO-GO Decision

NO-GO

There is still work that needs to be done. Though we're very close to being ready for a release.

📆 Setting the goal date

Because NixCon is starting next Friday @worldofpeace will be unavailable (they're mc), and we wouldn't want to conflict with a community event like this.

The options we discussed

  • make another when2meet to talk again after that Friday

This is going to delay the release even more 😦

  • meet on Monday

The issue with that was we need to talk with @garbas in the meeting or we won't have anything useful to go over.

Priority

Getting in contact with @garbas some way or another.

Notes
