    1. Approve banner for blog posts about these meetings (Daniel Valadas): OK

    2. How did it go with the process to approve meeting minutes?  Ok

  4. Unfinished business / Status updates

    1. Dnn 9.2.2 RC update
      Dnn 9.2.2 RC was updated last week, testing on ESW side is done, targeting beginning of next week for the normal release. Please download and test it in a non-production environment and report any issues.

    2. Do we dedicate a meeting every 6 weeks to specifically discuss long term goals.
      This discussion is postponed to next meeting. But we need to create some kind of bucket to hold items planned for long term goals.

    3. Do we implement something to collect a global idea of availabilities (vacations, etc.)
      We discussed using Milestones and Tags to manage this. We also discussed assigning people to issues if they are working on them to prevent having two persons working on the same issue without knowing it. We need a way to group related issues (such as GDPR related issues), we discussed using tags, milestones, related issues and Projects. We will try to do it using a project first and see if that fills the need.

    4. Community webinars (Peter Donker)
      Postponed to next meeting

    5. React Components updates (Matt Rutledge)
      Postponed to next meeting

    6. New HTML Editor
      Postponed to next meeting

  5. New business

    1. Testing scenarios
      There was a document describing specific test scenarios. The team discussed either building upon that document (which we do not have now) or starting a new one from scratch.

    2. DNN 9.3.0
      We may push the targeted code freeze date of Dnn 9.3.0 to October 19th for a target release candidate on October 22nd and a target normal release on November 5th.

    3. Google Analytics Connector
      Mike Smeltzer submitted a pull request for a new Google Analytics connector, which should be included in Dnn 9.3, the team discussed options regarding GDPR compliance (IP anonymization) and the possibility of improving or building another connector for Google Tag Manager.

  6. Addendum / Open Forum

    1. GDPR Cookie consent
      Sebastian spoke to Geoff Barlow, he may be donating a cookie consent module to Dnn, that we may integrate in the core project. We will continue this discussion next week.

    2. Workflow API
      We started discussing improving the workflows API and building a platform UI for managing it. (This is probably a long term goal and might only come back on the long term dedicated meetings)

  7. Adjournment
