Community webinars (Peter Donker / Will Stroll) postponed from last meeting (postponed from last meeting)
Will has scheduled a webinar for 25th October (Dnn hangout)
GDPR update by Peter Donker Peter submitted some pull requests, will bring the discussion offline to sync efforts on the items to do.
Significant pull request (cookie consent and management of terms and conditions / privacy statement) waiting to be merged. Next step is to attack data consent.
Issue Review on Platform and AdminExperience. Oliver was investigation Issue.sh as a tool to allow people to help with triage without needing write access. Still investigation options, we will come back to this in a few weeks.
Still under investigation, postponed to a future meeting.
APIs Documentation XML documentation on public APIs would be welcome, David mentioned DocFX and Kelly also investigating + working on more verbose documentation.
Kelly tried compiling from XML documentation and it appears to work as expected. Oliver _may_ automate that in the build process, to be discussed later.
RFC Process for long term planning meetings
Mitchel documented a process to have RFCs (Requests for comments) in order to keep track of discussions where we need community opinion (long terms goals, breaking changes, etc.) You will start seeing issues in Github that start with RFC: and a ‘help wanted’ tag, please discuss your opinions on these subjects even you if you are not a programmer. We will try this process but if anyone has a better idea, feel free to comment.
Dnn 8 and Security Analyser:
The old security analyser module has not been updated, people have a false sense of security when using it on Dnn 8. We will publish a new version that will clearly indicate that not running the latest version is a security issue itself. We will also update the Dnn upgrade path wiki page and publish a blog post about this.
