October 7, 2021


UEFI Plugfest:

No new updates since last month.

Past AR review from September -

o Community Action: provide input to Dick Wilkins Dick_Wilkins@...<mailto:Dick_Wilkins@...<mailto:Dick_Wilkins@...%3cmailto:Dick_Wilkins@...>> on these questions -

* Is your company interested in sponsoring?

* Are you willing to pay for the conference?

Community Response - Community thinks that it's useful to have a face to face event.

Paying for the conference maybe fine for those that need to pay for hotel and flight.

Aligning with UEFI plugfest is beneficial for the TianoCore design/technical roadmap discussions and for the TianoCore community to come together.

Stable Tag updates:

Stable tag 202111 is collecting features.

Soft freeze on Nov 8th.

Community Action: please send your feature requests ahead of time to Liming.

Stewards Download:

1. Inclusive language: Stewards discussed TianoCore to follow inclusive language and layout the guidelines. Community manager will drive further conversations with stewards and community in the upcoming weeks.
2. Discussion around Uncrustify tool.

Reduces code review time and provides consistent code base when having to recode so you don't see mixed styles in diff parts of the tree.

Community action - review the code style and provide feedback if you like it or not and what changes would you like to see.

EDK2 C coding style is not identical to Uncrustify. Should we change EDK2 style?
