Stable Meeting Time Proposal

DocImpact vs. Reno

  • Sean notes a new job on all Nova changes that is processing commit messages [5].
  • UpgradeImpact got dropped for having an upgrade comment in Reno.
  • Instead of DocImpact, SecurityImpact in commit messages, new special sections using Reno will be created that trigger creating bugs and sending out emails like today. The hope is for better quality in these notifications.
