The technical board meetings takes place every second Wednesday on IRC channel #dpdk-board, at 3pm UTC. Meetings are public and DPDK community members are welcome to attend.

NOTE: Technical Board meetings for 2020-08-12 and 2020-08-26 were cancelled due to holidays in August.


#1 Reminder to all Techboard members to volunteer as moderators for session in the virtual DPDK Userspace event later this month.

#2 Requiring unit tests for contributions to DPDK:
   * Discussion focused mainly on the areas of flow APIs and similar areas of DPDK which cannot be tested easily using "dpdk-test" unit test binary
   * Concern was expressed about DTS usability, and lack of widespread use in developer community.
   * Concern was also raised about mandating tests for features while DTS is in a separate repo from DPDK - and which uses a separate patch mailing list.
   * **Action for all Techboard members**: Evaluate DTS to determine the usability pain-points and be able to discuss plan to improve it.

#3 Development of unit tests at UNH:
   * Many of the same concerns raised as in previous discussion
   * Flow APIs would be one area where more work would be needed
   * Improvements to DTS itself was felt to be the highest priority initially
   * Currently lacking specifics of tasks to be undertaken, this needs to be prepared before any work can start
   * No volunteer from Techboard right now to take responsibility for directing that effort.
   * **Action for all Techboard members**: members to attend the regular CI meetings whenever possible
      * **Action**: Kevin to forward invite to all TB members (done)

#4 Request for Technical Writer to help with DPDK documentation:
   * Spec for work was already started over email previously
   * **Action**: Bruce to take existing discussion emails and begin document based on that.

Other items deferred for next meeting.

Next meeting will be on 2020-09-23, and will be chaired by Ferruh.
