1) v20.05 items
 - For release notes:
 -- Deprecations to be reviewed
 -- Tested Hw to be listed

2) Experimental versioning options
- Background mail http://inbox.dpdk.org/dev/2199673.OYXXYNVTWy@thomas
- This is about how libs with only experimental API are versioned
- At present there is a separate versioning scheme for them
- It has caused some extra maintainence
- Proposal is to remove the special experimental versioning scheme
- It does not impact status of experimental, just versioning
- Experimental status can be indicated in:
-- lib name/versioning
-- prog guide
-- doxygen

- Voted to remove special numbering scheme for experimental libs

3) Governing board rep
- Bruce will take over
- Will be rotated quarterly

- No news from companies about possible maintainers
