Thank you for leading the meeting.
As we discussed, there is a communication issue
to get more maintainers attending the meeting.
We can work on the communication with blog post, announce, etc.
As a very first step, I think we need a better format of the minutes
in plain text email. The format below is difficult to read,
missing blank lines, indent, and title underlines.
Another very important communication is to add the date/time
and link of the meeting, and invite for more attendance
at the beginning of the minutes.

> CI Status
> * Travis
> * Bug 508 - Missing Reports from Travis CI - Aaron was looking into this.
> * OBS
> * Robot scripts are partly integrated, Aaron is planning to complete
> this work next week, because he was pulled into other higher priority items
> (i.e. the day job).
> * UNH-IOL Community Lab
> * Mellanox Tuning / Upgrades (BUG-504) - Having started the upgrade on
> DTS. Ali did some performance tuning on the system. System is currently
> in production.
> * Broadcom 100G Upgrade (BUG-489) - tests are working/running, will be
> enabled in production CI environment soon.
> * Arm system install (BUG-408) - Hardware is almost ready to ship, need
> to deal with some logistics, policies, and trade items.
> * Functional testing (i.e. DTS development output) - moving onto
> Broadcom systems, followed by Mellanox systems. Some tests are running on
> the Broadcom system now, but not in production yet. Functional testing is
> already running on the Intel systems now.
> * Intel
> * No known issues at this time
> * General
> * Bug 210 - Patches with dependency fails to apply
> * Script needs to be created to parse the header / tags, which will
> likely be a wrapper of the git-pw.
> * Bug 511 - Add check if performance tests are needed
> * Added some ideas to the bug, need a volunteer to help develop the
> proposed script and categories.
> * Bug 497 - Reporting format per patchset
> Test Development
> * DPDK has 146 maintainers, according to the project. Concern raised that
> only 2 maintainers regularly attend the CI meetings. Participation is
> needed to help set priorities in the testing.
> * Idea to create a blog post about the current CI efforts and
> accomplishments to help highlight the topic to the community. Lincoln will
> create a draft of the blog by mid-next week.

> possible to verify from user space to verify non-privileged functionality,
> suggestions welcome
> * Additional Work
> * Progress toward verification of the implementation status of all of
> the test cases. 37 test cases are confirmed working in the development
> environment. Note, this number also includes UNH submitted cases above.
> Some existing tests (Link Status) use “ifconfig” which is “EOL” compared to
> “ip link”. Should these instances be changed in DTS, etc?
> * Deployment of DTS tests to bare-metal systems in UNH Community CI
> lab. Brandon is working on expanding DTS functional testing to Broadcom
> and Mellanox. This will add both MTU update and stats checks first, then
> expanding to the other working cases
> * Community Requests
> * Patch review for our open test cases - provide feedback on
> submitted patches, so we can get things merged
> * High priority features to add test suites or test cases for, and
> which ones have existing test suites to build upon:
> * Did a quick review of the missing / broken features to set
> * Next larger feature could be around building development plans
> for rte-flow drivers. Items (things you can change in the packet), actions
> (move a packet to flow).
> * Confirmed crypto-dev, virtio and other classes for next year,
> * Any features that we should ignore due to lack of use or support
> Any other business
> * New SPDK release this / next week - will drive a request to change the
> branches, Tomasz will provide details when things are ready.
> * Next Meeting: August 13, 2020, 9am EDT
