LTS
---

* v19.11.6-rc1 is out, please test
   * http://inbox.dpdk.org/dev/20201203093856.299103-1-luca.boccassi@gmail.com/
   * Waiting for test reports, some already received
   * There are some regression reported by Intel, and suggested fix is causing
     regression
     * Release was planned for today but it is postponed one day while waiting
       update on above issues

* v18.11.11 work is going on
   * waiting for backports, request emails sent
     * Good response from accumulated waiting patches for backport
   * Planning to release the -rc today


OvS
---

* DPDK v20.11 is integrated for the coming 2.15 release


Opens
-----

* Asaf shared a draft release process documentation
   * Not ready yet for sending as patch

* Security (CVE) process
   * There is an effort in Intel to find more resources for it

* Inactive maintainers
   * There are some names listed in the maintainers file but they are not active
     anymore, removing their name can help filling those positions.
     * What is the time taken as inactive?
       * No interaction in the mail list for 3 releases?
         * If missing response is blocking a component, it can be taken as
           inactive without waiting 3 releases.
    * It is hard to fill a maintainer position if it is for a vendor driver
      * Should common code and vendor PMDs be treated differently on this?
        * Should we mark PMDs without active maintainer as 'unmaintained'?
