Work Updates

  • Change Log
    • Only include PRs that have useful changes rather than a line for each PR
    • Either
      • Add a CHANGELOG section to each PR
      • Use a wiki page.
    • Can we keep the changelog in the wiki and not keep it in the codebase?
    • Why not have updating the change log as part of the PR?
      • There will always be merge conflicts
    • Whatever change happens will require an adjustment of habits.
    • Proposal: Make an actual change to the PR as part of the log
      • Standalone commit
      • Or as part of the changes
    • We will try this for the next release or so.
      • Someone will need to review and ensure this is being practiced.
      • Add to contributor guidelines 
  • Custom RPC endpoints plugin service

Other Business

  • CI/CD
    • Jenkins is dead.
    • Circle CI for everything.
