1.Scope of cmdline and cfgfile libraries in DPDK
- DPDK will continue to keep one version of cli and cfg libs in dpdk. They can be replaced with a better version in future. 
- w.r.t Keith's CLI lib proposal. It should replace the existing CLI lib. If any api changes are required, the api deprecation process should be followed. 
- It is acknowledged that cli and cfg libs can also be used outside dpdk. They can be better hosted on a different git repository. However, DPDK needs a better external dep system to do this. 
- The DPDK build system should be improved to work better with external dependencies. Thomas and Bruce will send a RFC on build system reqs for handling external deps.  

2. DPDK Bug Tracker
DPDK is missing a bug tracker or to-do item list. It will be discussed in next meeting.

3. Next Meeting
As per alphabetical order, Jan Blunck will chair next meeting. He will poll for the date and time of next meeting.
