Perl Steering Council, meeting #002, 2020-01-12
Message ID:
(Gosh, Neil, I dunno about this precedent of numbering the meetings.  We're going to miss a number at some point and then we'll be sorry.)

Today, Neil and Sawyer and I had our second PSC meeting.  We're still establishing short and long term agenda items, with some top agenda items including:
 1. how do we encourage good interactions on p5p to take us forward in making decisions
 2. what are the principles guiding these decisions (especially at the PSC level)
 3. what is the process for going from "I have an idea for changing Perl" to "I merged it!"
Regarding the two items mentioned by Neil last time:

First was "how are PRs reviewed and merged?".  We wrote up a basic explanation of how we plan to simplify this process,  we think it's a good start, and I'll post a separate email about it soon.

The second was related to TPF grants.  There's no real problem here, we only want to make sure that TPF grants that require approval from the project management (traditionally the Perl 5 Core Maint. grants) can be approved by any of the three of us.  This is a small procedural matter that I'll chase down.

We'll keep p5p posted as we move along, and I hope we'll have some good first-order answers to #2 and #3 above, which are things that a lot of people are asking about.
