[FreeBSD-Announce] Core Team Office Hours

submited 04 July 2020

FreeBSD recently held an election for its governing body called the Core Team. The newly elected Core Team would like to invite you to a virtual town hall meeting. They'll be holding two sessions, one timed well for Europe and the Americas; the other timed well for Asia, Africa and India. Sessions will be held at 1800 UTC on July 7, 2020 and 0200 UTC on July 8, 2020. See https://wiki.freebsd.org/OfficeHours for details on how to join either a live stream to watch, or an interactive meeting to participate. A link to this agenda (and any updates) will be there as well.

They'll be discussing the chosen topics and taking general questions at the end. They'll have a moderator who will help call on people in the meeting to ask questions (or to offer comments) as well as relay relevant questions from IRC.
