May 18th, 2017.

Member attendees:
- Bruce Richardson
- Hemant Agrawal

- Olivier Matz
- Stephen Hemminger
- Thomas Monjalon

1. Service Core Library RFC

The service core lib is actively discussed on the dev@ ML already. The common
understanding is that there is no immediate need for a TB decision. The
management of threads in DPDK is considered as being one of the many items on
a rework todo list.

2. librte_flow_classify Library

The members voted for acceptance of the new library. Thomas requested to
clarify if it's purely seen as a software fallback implementation for rte_flow
or if its a building block for IPFIX. Further discussion around exact naming
and technical details will continue on dev@ ML.

3. Issue Tracker

Hemant detected that the discussion about setting up an issue tracker was
dropped off the agenda. The meeting voted for running a GNU bugzilla instance
underneath the dpdk.org domain. Thomas fearlessly volunteered himself to setup
the instance.
Running an issue tracker also requires a process backing it:

 a) MAINTAINERS are on the hook to do bug triage
 b) community is asked for pre-release focus on open bugs/show stoppers

Additionally to that there is need for a bug manager to close the coming in
FAQ. The bug manager should also be responsible for ensuring that bug triage
is done. The bug tracker will not be set up until a bug manager is agreed upon.
There was no decision who will take this up.

4. Community Issues

Bruce gave an update about the Governing Board. Nominations are finalised for
the different board positions, chairman, vice-chair and treasurer.

5. Next Meeting

Stephen will chair the next meeting.
