3.1. Introduction to the Automotive SIG
The purpose of the Automotive SIG is two-fold. First, it is meant to be a neutral public space for collaboration between third parties interested in open development of software targeted at in-vehicle automotive use cases. Second, it is meant to provide such projects with build and test infrastructure.
The general goal of the SIG is to provide an open-source home for distro-oriented automotive work (i.e. derived from binary artifacts, rather than rebuilt from source), and to attract and encourage open development of automotive software between commercial and non-commercial partners.
To that end, this SIG will have three primary functions:
- General Goals
Note: CentOS is a public, fully transparent project, so any work that happens within the context of this SIG is by definition public, and, according to the CentOS guidelines, must carry an open license approved by the CentOS board. This applies to both code and documentation. If any work requires an NDA or other privacy protection, it must be done outside the scope of this SIG.
Some practical goals to work toward over the next 4-5 months include:
- Build a foundational community
- Establish working relationships among all participants, and encourage others to join
- Create robust community guidelines, including contribution guidelines and CoC
- Vote administrative roles
Develop plans for the CentOS Automotive variant and build & test infrastructure
- Presentation at Automotive Linux Summit (with stickers)
Action items from the last meeting:
- continue to develop basic build/test infrastructure (Pierre-Yves)
- encourage all interested parties to join this community (everyone)
3.2. Build & test infrastructure update
The current meeting time is reasonable for Europe and the US, but not for Asia. As the group develops, it may be advantageous to hold meetings at times more conducive to all times zones. To achieve this, we may move to alternating times and/or a divided meeting that repeats on the same day, and to record meetings so people can catch up asynchronously. Important topics should always be brought up on the mailing list as a primary avenue for discussion.
3.3. Future meeting schedule (thanks to those who responded to the poll)
3.4. Request for help to develop contribution guidelines
Specifically, we need contribution guidelines & welcome help to work on these
4. Communications Channels for the SIG

Jefro also has had training in code of conduct resolution, so if anyone has any concerns or needs guidance on this subject, please feel free to send email to him personally as a first step. All communication on this subject will remain strictly confidential.
Several community communications channels have been established:
