DNN Technology Ecosystem Advisory Group continues to meet on a weekly basis mapping out the future
of DNN. The meeting agenda and minutes are shared here in blog entries so that everyone can see the progress being made and conversations
occurring in the group.
This September 11th meeting saw discussion around the DNN 9.2.2 release candidate, communications with the community,
security, and more!

Review and adoption of agenda
Approval of minutes from last meeting
Finished business / Reports / Announcements
Tentative meeting scheduled with Mitch and Andy to discuss collective feedback: Liquid Content, .Net Core, etc. This conference had a bit more attendees and 4xx registered.
Unfinished business / Status updates
Dnn 9.2.2 Update
Oliver, need to merge 2 pull requests to release 9.2.2 RC1 (ETA monday?)
Tomasz needs to check with QA
Should be out next week if everything goes fine.
Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of progress….NOT meetings.
Everybody spends a lot of time in meetings, we need to continue talking but not add too many meeting hours. We need more actions, we are burning today 15 developer hours from the people attending right now. We need to find ways to put developers into development and less meetings. We need to fix current development issues before pushing a lot of great ideas for future plans.
One proposal was that each 6 weeks, focus on longer term plans.
We should find a way to gauge people vacations roughly, to plan release cycles, code freeze dates, etc.
Decide on a process for approving meeting minutes and publishing.
After each meeting, Daniel Valadas will publish the link to the meeting minutes, people can comment directly on the document to correct any blue text that does not capture correctly the essence of what was said. Then on next meeting we just double check if people is ok with last meeting minutes and if so we publish it on the Dnn Community blog.
Because we share parts with Evoq, do we want to showcase more what is done in community as a regular based event. All questions from attendees to the VUC will be answered by Ash, Mitch, Matt, etc. (ETA ?) Clint has webinar access and willing to host and promote webinars if needed. We could do this quarterly. We could collect a summary of accomplishments like in the Dnn Digest. Peter Donker volunteers to do this.
Addendum / Open Forum
Matt Rutledge is working on updating dependencies and licenses. About 4 left to do, ETA ~ 1 to 3 weeks.
Targeted to be included in Dnn 9.3 if testing goes fine.
Do we want a new simpler and more modern editor, but we need to also consider customers who need all the features of the current one. It is a provider, so changing the default one would not prevent anyone from using the old one.
Agenda for next meetings
Daniel Mettler suggested having the agenda template for next meetings in advance so we can start planning discussion items as the week goes.
