Feedback from Feb 2022 Meeting

Feedback from February’s monthly meeting:

1. Was another fairly quick meeting as we agreed to not add lots more agenda points until we’ve moved on the existing one’s.
2. KARL – Kubernetes as a MIOS cloud standard – Karl will go see Richard at SITA in Feb. Danie will check if Richard wants to do a Zoom instead.
3. ASLAM – Establishing a FOSS special interest group for GITOC – Aslam to speak to Nhlanhla (Deon Nel already expressed willingness to discuss with Nhlanhla) – pending feedback.
4. DONE – Right to Repair – Danie conveyed to GITOC TTT and it will be added as an agenda point on their meeting.
5. We also discussed some other issues (carried over) that are not for action right now but we’ll keep them on as discussion points:
5.1 Enterprise Architecture – MOHAMED raised importance of it determining direction and FOSS awareness legislation, MIOS, etc but often external parties are just contracted to complete it for Depts and Entities. Keu is on this group and can be involved in this.
5.2 IT in schools – the fact that Delphi is still being taught, whilst Python is so popular and even presented by Microsoft says Karl. It is possibly something that can be taken up within the FOSS special interest group.
