Here are my notes from today's meeting:

Joshua Minor (Pixar)
Eric Reinecke (Netflix)
Daniel Flehner Heen (Storm Studios)


A few people sent apologies for not attending due to conflicts.
- We'll catch you all next time :)

Recap & Discussion about ASWF Open Source Forum from last week
- Nice to hear from the other ASWF projects - each project is moving forward & seeing a wide range of benefits from the ASWF.
- ASWF is forming a USD working group to assist/engage with the USD project.

Trusted Partner Network (TPN) 
- Daniel gave us an overview of what TPN is and the challenges related to that.
- Specifically there are network connectivity restrictions that make it difficult to download, build, and/or push contributions to OSS.
- Also, there are approval steps needed to download and upload material to/from a TPN.
- TPN members could use help from ASWF to more easily use and contribute to Open Source projects.
- We discussed some possibilities of providing bundled downloads with source, documentation, etc. as well as a guide/tutorial on how to best push code changes from inside an isolated network back to an upstream project (with proper approvals).

OTIO release
- Blocked on some issues - Eric and Josh attempting to make time to push this forward
- Josh will seek help from someone else with experience.

PR/Issue maintenance
- Eric has been helping to respond to incoming bug reports & PRs (Thanks Eric!)
- We discussed the proper steps for approving & landing PRs - with at least 2 people (author & reviewer) looking at each PR.
- After this next release, we should circle back to some older PRs that are lingering.

Google Summer of Code
- OTIO, along with other ASWF projects, has submitted a list of potential projects for Google Summer of Code.
- We are hoping to engage with the student community and get some new contributors, as well as provide mentoring to students.

Image Sequence support
- Branch is nearly ready to land
- Other adapters may gain support for this in the future.
- PR should update the Feature Matrix to show which adapters do/don't support Image Sequences

Formal Specification for OTIO
- Netflix is offering to help formalize the specification for OTIO
- An effort towards this some time ago stalled, but we expect that to re-start soon.
- This will be a topic for some future meetings.
