Agenda items#

Let’s collect all potential agenda items here before the start of the meeting. We will then attempt to create a coherent agenda that fits in the 60m meeting slot. If there are similar items try and group them together.

  • All: Standing project items:

    • Batchspawner check-in: Issues and PRs

      • need to check CI status, seems to be failing for PRs, from March (this was fixed in April):

        • pytest run for 3.9 against hub 0.9.6 fails

        • using a deprecated sqlalchemy maybe pinned by hub

        • Plan: drop that combo from the matrix, rerun

        • jupyterhub/batchspawner#229

        • Will probably unblock other failed PR tests

      • Worthwhile to do a sweep on batchspawner PRs

        • Which are worth keeping which to close?

        • Plan: Mike will take a look on PRs

      • Some new pull requests

      • Users have been breaking batchspawner by overwriting the script template

        • Created issue to not encourage users to do this

        • Documentation issue, not code issue

        • Some better config examples for README (they’re old)

    • Wrapspawner check-in: Issues and PRs
