FreeBSD recently held an election for its governing body called the =
=E2=80=98Core Team=E2=80=99. The newly elected Core Team would like to =
invite you to a virtual town hall meeting. We=E2=80=99ll be holding two =
sessions, one timed well for Europe and the Americas; the other timed =
well for Asia, Africa and India. Sessions will be held at 1800 UTC on =
July 7, 2020 and 0200 UTC on July 8, 2020. See =
https://wiki.freebsd.org/OfficeHours for details on how to join either a =
live stream to watch, or an interactive meeting to participate. A link =
to this agenda (and any updates) will be there as well.

We=E2=80=99ll be discussing the following topics and taking general =
questions at the end. We=E2=80=99ll have a moderator who will help call =
on people in the meeting to ask questions (or to offer comments) as well =
as relay relevant questions from IRC.

	=E2=80=A2 Introduce core members -- All the core team members in =
attendance will briefly introduce themselves and say a few words about =
their goals for this core term.
	=E2=80=A2 Discuss proposed terminology changes -- Recently, the =
prior core team had sent out a proposal about how to handle shifts in =
language based on societal change. The initial message was poorly =
written and didn=E2=80=99t strike the right tone. We=E2=80=99ll discuss =
it, the underlying issue and how the new core team plans on doing things =
better.
	=E2=80=A2 Recruiting for project teams -- When a new core team =
takes over, it=E2=80=99s a good time to assess the needs of each of the =
teams that we have running different aspects of the project, such as =
administering our machines and helping keep FreeBSD secure. One common =
theme is the need for more help. We=E2=80=99ll discuss what teams there =
are, and make a recruiting pitch and answer any questions.
	=E2=80=A2 Core TODO List publishing -- To continue the openness =
initiative, the core team will start publishing out TODO list. This will =
be in addition to the normal meeting minutes and other openness ideas. =
The new core team would love to hear from the community how to improve =
our communications.
	=E2=80=A2 Git Transition -- To raise awareness, Ed Maste and =
Warner Losh will be giving a brief presentation about the state of the =
project=E2=80=99s planned transition to git. They can answer a few =
questions here, but are also planning an entire office hours on the git =
transition (tentatively scheduled in two weeks).
	=E2=80=A2 General Questions -- Time permitting, the new core =
team can answer any other questions or concerns the community might =
have.

Thanks! We look forward to meeting you.

The New Core Team:
Sean Chittenden
Baptiste Daroussin
Kyle Evans
Mark Johnston
Scott Long
Warner Losh
Ed Maste
George V. Neville-Neil
Hiroki Sato
