Attending: Sanket Verma (SV) and Jeremy Maitin-Shepard (JMS)


Discussion centers on revising ZEP0 with proposals to streamline the process, including incorporating reading and implementation phases, and considering methods to increase user engagement and ensure smooth decision-making, with attention given to potential veto options and quorum requirements.

Meeting Minutes:

  • ZEP0 Revision
    • https://github.com/zarr-developers/zeps/issues/55#issuecomment-1905156595
    • JMS: Both Ryan’s and SV proposal can work together
    • SV: We can have an issue for reading/implementation comments and PR for the actual change
    • JMS: The idea of reading and implementation phase is an improvement from the existing proposal
    • JMS: The people who care about Zarr specification is less but streamlining the process is equally important
    • JMS: Create new issues if the discussion gets long and link it to the PR - and you can add it to the description
    • SV: There’s also a question of how we can increase the activity of the users in Zarr specification work
    • JMS: The time and interests of various the council members depends on various factors
    • JMS: Let people veto at anytime, even at the voting phase? - you have processes but in the end you rely on people!
    • JMS: We hopefully don’t get veto at the end of the stage
    • JMS: You should have the veto in the voting phase too! - There should be option of veto if the problem comes up very late
    • JMS: Thinks having a quorum can help
  • Good to go with?
