Agenda items#

  • (Alex) “object doesn’t have an __enter__/__exit__ yet docs say it does” might be interesting to discuss

    • concern with renaming/changing text will break links (specifically, fragment parts of URL e.g. #object.__enter__).

    • it’s better to add a paragraph above explaining it. even though readers may not read the paragraph, at least we can still point people to it, instead of breaking links.

  • Infrastructure & detecting/avoiding broken links


‘Internal’ items#

For and about the Community or Working Group

  • Better time slot for the meeting

    • Maybe let’s alternate the Monday slot with another time, so other ppl can join?
