Messaging

SIG status: planning/onboarding

Current Steering Committee Chair: MatthiasRunge

Board Member Helping Bootstrap: KaranbirSingh

Goals

Provide a unique source for messaging related packages.

Deliverables

Mailing List and Communication

Preferred coordination and communication is using centos-devel@centos.org or using #centos-devel on freenode. For emails, please consider to tag the mail by adding [Messaging] to the subject. In the future, if the volume of conversation goes up to a point where its a distraction, we might request our own dedicated mailing list.

We might also request that major announcements like version update and events are announced via the official CentOS formats, including the announce list, social media, irc and other related venues.

We shall also aim to ensure all releases and announcements are pushed via upstream venues, specially those that represent the content being released.

Contribution

Resource requests

We will request resources as and when needed, however to start up we would want :

SIG Membership

There will be a core set of admins in our steering committee, who will verify all further requests to join the SIG and a series of committers. Admins might change in due course, and we will aim to maintain a low barrier for commit access. All authorisations will run via accounts.centos.org.

For persons interested in contributing to the SIG, please send a mail to the centos-devel mailing list and announce your interest. We also host regular weekly meetings, please join the meeting. You should be able to see our meeting schedule at https://www.centos.org/community/calendar

The steering committee now consists of:

Commit access (addition, removal) to the repositories will be decided in the regular meetings. The steering committee will remove inactive contributors in regular meetings. Persons with no contribution for more than 180 days are assumed to be inactive.

The Steering Committee Chairperson should be elected by the group of committers, same goes for the steering committee.

Meetings

What format, where, and what time do the regular meetings take place?

IRC meeting, channel #centos-devel, weekly meeting (until chosen otherwise). We will decide on a day and time once approved and publish to the CentOS calendar.

Roadmap and (Action) TODO List

  1. a set of package specs is available at ...
  2. improve documentation, available at ...
  3. establish CI

Important Note

The Messaging efforts started within the Cloud SIG, and the OpsTools SIG wherein it was seen to target a wider audience and therefore decided to move into its own SIG. However, we do have content that was built into the Cloud SIG Tags (same for OpsTools) on cbs.centos.org. Once approved, we will work on moving / removing / re-tagging that content to better reflect its new origin.
