21.02 retrospective

* It was a small release
* For last two years LTS get improved
   * It was smoother switch from 19.11 to 20.11
* Bugzilla utilized better, more bugs are closed
   * Still there are some long open ones
* Coverity runs automated
   * Better coverage on CI with help of meson
* There are not concluded patches long standing in backlog
   * Need better support from community to close them
   * May consider a meeting to go through them
* No major disruption from new gcc1 compiler
* Release dates mostly predictable, there are small slips but not major ones
* CI can be improved more, we have new CI lead (Aaron)
   * Removing dependency to hugepages, devices and root access makes unit tests
     easier to be used
     * This way it can be run in more platforms and at build time
   * Unit tests can be run in the CI with coverage calculation
   * The unit test frameworks around: unity, cunity

   * Received more backports/feedback
   * Still waiting response for a few backport
   * Will sync with Luca for -rc date
