TAC & SPC Update

Marketing Update


General Topic

License update with Steve

  • Steve Winslow from the LF Legal team provided a review of project license updates and migration options if the TSC wished to pursue any changes.
  • The focus of the discussion centered on EPL 1 vs 2 and what it would take to migrate to EPL2.
  • EPL2 with a Secondary license or ALv2 relicensing would require consent of every contributors.
    • To be compatible with GPLv2+, the secondary license mention is required. It may be used on portion on codes but would be difficult to add to the wholde codebase.
    • note that the FSF claims here that ALv2 is not compatible with GPLv2 but is compatible with GPLv3. The Apache foundation point of view about this is detailed here .

RelEng Update

  • Andy was invited to the call by the TSC to discuss a number of things affecting the RelEng.
    • Robert Varga asked about the support level expectations that the Community is supposed to be.
    • Andy explained that the LF does not have an 'SLA' with any of the projects but rather the best effort.  
      • The escalation of tickets is "disabled" for the first hour so that tickets are not being immediately escalated.
      • Andy further explained the escalation and on-call services.
  • Robert Varga asked about the resource commitments to the community from the RelEng team
    • Robert further asked if there is a way to track the KPI of how many hours were spent on ODL.
    • Andy noted that there is a IT Summaries released monthly at https://wiki.lfnetworking.org/x/TAIQAg
  • Robert is looking for additional automation around releases and would like RelEng to be supporting those issues proactively 
  • Andy explained ongoing migrations of RelEng to Jenkins pipelines jobs that would allow a configuration per project repo.
