SIG Release would like to make some changes to our existing meeting cadence and times in order to make meetings more effective and more accessible. We've discussed this at the last couple of meetings and we opened an issue to track https://github.com/kubernetes/sig-release/issues/1912
First, we’d like to combine the bi-weekly SIG Release and Release Engineering subproject meetings. We often have a need to discuss topics on off weeks and doing this will allow us greater flexibility to address topics as they occur. We'll combine our meeting notes and update the invites to reflect this.
Next, we’d like to stagger the times. One week, we will meet at a time that is more friendly to contributors in US time zones and the next week, we will meet at a time that is more friendly to contributors in APAC/Europe. We intend to keep the meetings on Tuesdays, but will alternate the times from week to week.
Please see the following Doodle polls and help us select new times:
APAC / EU Friendly Times: https://doodle.com/meeting/participate/id/e1jp5vVa
US Friendly Times:
Finally, we will more strictly adhere to our existing agenda closed meeting reminder and cancel meetings on MONDAY if there is no agenda. We’ll explicitly add some backlog review topics to the agenda so we can do this occasionally.
We'll also work to identify some criteria to help us determine if this is successful or if we need to make any additional changes after executing this way for a little while. If you have any feedback, questions, or concerns please feel free to comment on the issue (https://github.com/kubernetes/sig-release/issues/1912), or reach out on the #sig-release channel on Slack.
