Community Blog editor roundtable – Tuesday, 2024 January 23rd

On Tuesday, 23 January 2024, me and @amoloney met for a brand-new, weekly Community Blog editor roundtable. This was the first editor roundtable, and we intend to continue this on a weekly basis! For now, I am grouping the summary with marketing-team, but I can move this elsewhere if it makes sense to do so!

Here is the Meetbot summary and overall recap:

@amoloney A quick note here, since I broke this schedule already since we met. I suggest we bump the k8s article to Tuesday, 30 January instead of Thursday, 1 February. It is more timely to publish this one on Tuesday since it corresponds to recent changes made in Rawhide.

I am thinking the CPE/I&R summary post can go live on that Thursday instead?

That didnt last long :joy: but sure, I agree with the proposed schedule change.
