  4. Unfinished business / Status updates
    1. Branching & Structure for all Projects (Confirmation - 5 Min)
      Proposed solution for branching strategy is to have the primary branch of “Development”. This branch will be the real-time branch that changes will merge into*. From here we will create Release branches as needed. For the current point in time we have the Release 9.3.x branch, this is where RC builds are done. Once 9.3.0 is released, changes that need to be included in 9.3.1 will merge to 9.3.x (Controlled by the approvers) and then be merged on a regular basis to Development. Changes slated for 9.4.0 release would be merged to development.
      When we get to 9.4.0 readiness, we will create a 9.4.x branch that makes the RC. After release of 9.4.0 the 9.3 branch will be deleted.
      When we get to 10.0 readiness, we will create a 10.0 branch, and RETAIN the 9.4 branch for support, until a 10.1 release or otherwise deemed necessary based on scope of breaking changes
    2. Persona Bar Versioning (Discussion - 5 Min)
      Should the persona bar versioning be updated to match DNN version #? Benefits are consistency in version. Drawback would be if we want to release PB in the future
    3. RFC Review & 9.4 Planning
      Accessibility focus, vNext API Prototype, cleanup/deprecation minor new features (non breaking) - Estimated Code freeze May 17th RC May 20th Release June 3rd.
    4. 9.3.0 Testing Status & Release Date
      Status? - Will get back with us
      Proposed Schedule: RC2 - February 4th or earlier, Release February 11th
    5. Evoq Compatibility/Development.
      Conversation with Ash regarding versioning and differences between Platform and Evoq, see we also discussed showing the Platform version and Evoq version separatelly if ever the versions diverge. We discussed a possibility of revamping the installer. See RFC at
      We will continue discussing this next week.
  5. New business
    1. Meeting Cycles:
      TAG Approvers meeting on February 5th (issues focused), Next Group Meeting February 12th (Technology focused).
