Hello Everyone and Happy Monday! A couple quick things to share with y’all:1. Our next Community Office Hours is this Wednesday, 16 November — and we’re trying something new. We’re going to host as usual at
https://app.livestorm.co/airbyte/airbyte-community-office-hours, but at the same time, we’ll also be hosting a Slack Huddle right here on this channel! We’ll try and answer some questions, look at some issues, and generally see if we can make the combination of these two tools works (or doesn’t).
2. Our Office Hours through the end of the year have been determined: in addition to this Wednesday, 16 November, we’ll also be holding Office Hours on 23 November, 7 December, 14 December, and 21 December. Please note: November 30th there will not be an Office Hours to allow our team to do some pruning and triaging for our Backlog Burndown Day. Also please not there will not be an Office Hours on December 28th, because it’s the week between the US holidays of Christmas and New Year’s, and honestly who wants to be working then anyway.
3. The 21 December Office Hours, as our last one of 2022, will start with a retrospective of CAT, the Community, and where we’ve come from and are going in 2023.
4. Last but not least: please be aware that the Airbyte Engineering Team is instituting a Code Freeze for all Airbyte Repos beginning after hours on 18 November and going until the freeze is lifted as of the morning of 28 November. The effect of this freeze is that no PRs will be merged during that time (although PR review and acceptance will continue). When the dates are determined for the Christmas / New Year’s Holidays Freezes, I’ll also share that here.
If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here or ping me directly, and I’ll do my best to answer them! Have a fantastic day, and I’ll see y’all on Wednesday.
