1/ Power management patches

        - examples/vm_power: 100% Busy Polling
decision: to RC2

        - lib/librte_power: traffic pattern aware power control
decision: to 18.11

2/ Maintenance of examples

The examples directory can be used as a staging area for some features.
And the techboard must do a periodically audit of this directory.
The actions to take can be:
        - move code into libraries
        - merge examples
        - drop example

3/ Recurring agenda items

Some recurring items will be added to the techboard agenda:
        - examples audit
        - meson migration
        - SPDX compliance

4/ Required talks for Dublin event

        - community process improvements
        - memory rework
        - do less by default

More details about the last one:
The application must own the configuration (including for threads),
while EAL provide some good defaults, some parsing helpers and a fine-grain API.
