Meeting schedule

Please refer to the Kubernetes community SIG etcd summary for the latest updates to etcd community meeting schedules.

Community meetings & Issue triage

etcd contributors and maintainers meet online every week, on Thursday at 11 AM Pacific Time, alternating between community meetings and issue triage meetings. Issue triage meetings are aimed at getting through our backlog of PRs and Issues. Triage meetings are open to any contributor; you don’t have to be a reviewer or approver to help out! They can also be a good way to get started contributing.

For phone-in information, the date of the next meeting, and minutes from past meetings, see etcd community meeting doc.

Robustness tests

Join us for a collaborative exploration of etcd’s correctness under pressure online biweekly, on Wednesday at 8 AM Pacific Time. Our goals are to demystify distributed system testing by sharing knowledge and fostering a robust testing culture within the etcd community, as well as to expand expertise by mentoring new reviewers and approvers for etcd robustness tests. We invite community members to propose items for the meetings.

For phone-in information, the date of the next meeting, minutes from past meetings, and meeting recordings, see etcd robustness tests meeting doc and robustness tests meeting recordings.

Join contributors and maintainers online, every two weeks.

For meeting details, consult the etcd community meeting and robustness tests meeting documents.
