|[Total Github issues](https://github.com/gluster/glusterfs/issues)       |    720   |

 - [hari] Clang count needs to be reviewed if the reported output is correct.
 - [hari] Discrepancy in total bugs reported in last meeting and the current state. Did the automation impact and bring this change?
 - [amar] The project-infrastructure bugs which are in a separate repo are likely the reason https://github.com/gluster/project-infrastructure

* Any release updates?
  * 7.4 is out and users are asking for https://review.gluster.org/#/c/glusterfs/+/24200/

[sheetal] Builds are in progress. ubuntu's launchpad has been updated. the rest will also be done.

* Blocker issues across the project?
  - Someone need to have a look at [#884](https://github.com/gluster/glusterfs/issues/884)
  - https://review.gluster.org/#/c/glusterfs/+/22492/ is the reason to suspect Shard feature. I suspect the issue still fails.

* Notable thread form mailing list
  - Deepshika's email on Bugzilla => Github migration.
  - the Github migration is being done in phases. Phase 1 is BZ --> Github; Phase 2 would be utilizing the entire range of Github workflow and actions

Talks related to gluster:

### GlusterFS - v8.0 and beyond
* When is the good time to make release? branch?
  - [name=Amar Tumballi] prefers to have https://review.gluster.org/24163 reviewed and merged before, so by release 9, we can achieve lesser logs, and more accurate reasoning for errors.
    - https://kadalu.io/rfcs/0004-gluster-error-codes.html
    - https://github.com/gluster/glusterfs/issues/280

### Developer focus
