Updates

Matrix Native Zodbot

With ongoing stability issues with the Matrix <-> IRC bridge and many contributors switching over to Matrix, zodbot has become increasingly unreliable. The bridge is currently shut off completely. This initiative will provide a future proof solution and allow us to conduct meetings without wasting time troubleshooting the bridge and zodbot.

Updates

ARC Investigations

The ARC (which is a subset of the CPE team) investigates possible initiatives that CPE might take on.

Updates

  • Dist-Git decoupling & ecosystem mapping
    • Fedora Packagers interactions with dist-git added
