🔍 Blocker Review
- Review each listed bug and related issues and decide on priority. Make sure your bug is in this thread before the meeting.
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.
Needs new issue, not a blocker.
Fix to be committed @worldofpeace
Eelco made a fix so that the endpoint would be available. https://github.com/NixOS/nixos-channel-scripts/commit/f8db1d7bf9b902086d3a2b1a77bfa4c08fac3733 Needs work.
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
"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.
- Release announcement
- Release notes with channel-diff info?
No PRs were reviewed this meeting.
🎯 GO / NO-GO Decision
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.
Getting in contact with @garbas some way or another.
@ttuegel mentioned an issue with the download page: https://github.com/NixOS/nixos-homepage/issues/613
An easy one.
