  • Weekly changelog process
    • Review process seems to be OK (missed Dheeraj, but OK)
      • Mark’s observation was that process is working well
    • Tooling problem that pull requests “removed” were not in the changelog
      • Mark attempted a change to fix the tool (merged)
      • Mark pushed the missing entries into the old changelogs
    • Automatic changelog only considers the Jenkins core repository
      • That was fine until we implemented systemd in the installer
      • Those changes come from a different repository

    • Kevin Martens has agreed to do a weekly review
      • Other weekly changelog reviews are welcomed
