  3. Finished business / Reports / Announcements

  4. Unfinished business / Status updates

  5. New business

    1. Server-Side Blazor to Ship in .NET Core 3.0
      We had good conversations with Microsoft. They recommend to make a long term support of what we have now, then make a clean cut to .Net Core. since ASP.NET Core 3.0 will not support full framework. Microsoft announced a roadmap for full framework and it is not going away any time soon. Any ASP.NET Core LTS will only be supported for 3 years. Users will need to be more proactive in upgrades. We need to wait and see how ASP.NET Core 3.0 will be made before taking any important re-architecture and bridge path to .Net Core

    2. Do we start working on a 9.4 or 10.0? Do we move this to long term meeting?
      9.4 > Persona Bar improvements, no hidden features without a UI to manage them. C# Async
      10.0 >.Net framework 4.7.2, Razor Pages? Blazor? Other?

    3. Review RFCs

    4. New html editor
      An RFC still needs to be created to discuss the creation of a new HTML editor

    5. Workflow API, do we move this to one of the long term plans meetings?
      Mike created an RFC

    6. GDPR (export and anonymity)
      Peter moved this item into multiple RFCs

    7. Discussion around merging Repos for developer experience

  6. Addendum / Open Forum

After being away for a few months i finally sat a watched the meetings and great work. It's been really useful seeing the thought process going back into the modules again. I look forward to the future now looking brighter :)
