On 2021-02-10 the CentOS Board of Directors met to discuss ongoing business.
The board welcomed the Hyper Scale SIG Chair (Davide Cavalca) and new Cloud Interim SIG Chair (Amy Marrich).
A proposal to give to all SIG members a @centoproject.org email address has been approved. The new email aliases will be enabled when the new authentication system is deployed in April.
A discussion about the need for a CentOS Stream Kernel SIG around common community interests took place. Some challenges are still being discussed (secure boot, signing, kmods distribution, inter-SIG collaboration, integration of existing external projects). A communication will be sent to the centos-devel mailing list when all requirements are analysed and common ground identified.
Rich Bowen mentioned that additional Dojos will be organised during the year as it is a great way to get community feedback and improve involvement of new contributors.
The code of conduct work is on-going and the board would like to make that process completely transparent, and get help from the community when the initial draft is available.
To conclude, as mentioned last month, the SIG status review has been finalized and updates/recommendations sent to all active SIG.
