Hello Planning list,

Here are the Council meetings from the meeting held on the 7th of November.

Thunderbird Project Council Meeting 2019-11-07
Call Summary

Date: Thursday, November 7, 2019
Keeper of the minutes: Wayne

In the call: Ryan, Jörg, Patrick, Berna, Wayne, Philipp, Magnus
Regrets: -

The meeting (normally) commences at 2:00 PM CEST.

Agenda:

Financial:

* Ryan reported September and October preliminary donation numbers look 
good.

* Ryan is preparing end of year donation campaign.

Hiring/Personnel:

* Ryan suggested and council discussed the idea for a staff person to 
manage Enterprise Support and Documentation.

* Discussed add-on developers' concerns about the jump to 78, and ideas 
that might help with the transition, including an add-ons coordinator.

* Magnus is preparing job descriptions for the next round of hires.

Governance:

* Further discussion of changes which will be announced at a later date.

Miscellaneous:

* Jorg raised concerns about pending changes at Mozilla which will 
remove level 3 checkin rights to mozilla-* repositories, and level 4 
access will be required.  Until level 4 access can be arranged for 
Thunderbird, we will need to work through level 4 committers for 
checkins to those repos.  [Issue has since been resolved - for hg, 
thunderbird now has a cloned mozilla-central-esr68 repo 
<https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/comm-moz-esr68/>]

* Jorg raised concerns about upcoming taskcluster changes and whether 
there will be an impact to Thunderbird.  Someone will check into the 
details.  [Issue has not evolved into a problem, everything continued to 
work as normal.]

* Magnus kicked off discussion of what we want to do for FOSDEM 2020 and 
how many people to send. To be continued.

* Berna initiated discussion about code audits.
