Subject Re: [EVENT] HDFS Bug Bash: March 12
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2018 16:34:47 GMT
Hey folks-

Remember we're getting together on Monday to fix some "quality of
life" issues in the build. Please RSVP [1] so we can preprint badges,
that sort of thing. The meetup site only allows for 6 hour events, but
we have the room through 6:00PM PST and can keep the bridge/channel
open for other timezones that want to keep going.

We'll post remote access information when we get it. Please update the
wiki [2] as you think of issues we should address. -C
