Meeting Minutes
================

Maintainership
* New LTS maintainer approved by TB
* Christian Erhardt will take on responsibility as LTS maintainer for DPDK
* Christian would take on 19.11, Luca to take 20.11
 
DPDK Asia Conference Event
* AR: Techboard members - review spreadsheet by end of this week
* AR: Techboard members - Complete doodle poll for meeting ASAP
 
Backport Performance Optimizations
* Ask on mailing list to have performance optimization patches backported into LTS release
* Concerns expressed about this:
	- New code is viewed as potentially unstable
	- New code for opt is like introducing a new feature - perhaps worse as potentially breaking something working, rather than adding on.
* Other considerations mentioned (some already called out on mailing list)
	- Performance regressions should be considered separately.
	- Validation support - need submitter to provide validation tests
	- Potentially different rules for latest LTS vs other LTS?
	- Effort involved for LTS maintainers?
	- If any queue for patches, bug fixes must take priority.
* **Consensus Reached**
	1. no optimization backports at this point. Fixes for performance regressions will be considered on a case by case basis.
	2. AR: Kevin and Luca to document some policies for discussion.
 
List of supported OS's and compilers
* Previously agreed just to advertise what is tested
 
Lab
* Meetings ongoing to define objectives for lab
* On-going discussions in governing board re. coverage etc.
 
DPDK Build Configuration
* First draft of current design doc sent by Bruce to TB
* AR: Ask for TB to review
 
KNI
* Deprecation moved to recurring items
 
Status of Trex:
* Has forked copy of DPDK
	- Some extra DPDK patches not upstreamed
	- Has additional PMD
	- Uses old build system
* Trex is used in lab which causes problems:
	- New HW/drivers are not supported in forked copy
Further discussion needed on the topic of traffic generators for lab use.
