Things are rolling with this year’s Google Summer of Code. Make sure to check out (and comment on!) the work that the students are doing. You can track what they are up to on their blogs:

Submissions are now closed for CHAOSScon. We’ll have more to come shortly regarding the schedule and keynote. Just letting everyone know that the event is currently at capacity (100 people). There is a waitlist that is being managed by the Linux Foundation. If you have questions on this, email Matt Germonprez at

CHAOSScon will be on August 20, co-located with the Open Source Summit North America in San Diego, CA. We’re really looking forward to seeing everyone there.


The Diversity & Inclusion WG has honed in on specific metrics in advance of CHAOSS Metrics Version 1. For example, three ‘ready for release’ metrics are associated with Event Diversity:

The Evolution WG is experimenting with how to show in metric detail pages where to find the metric in CHAOSS software. See pull request wg-evolution/163

Finally, WGs should note that the timeline associated with CHAOSS Metrics Version 1 is:

  • Candidate metrics available for comment by June 21
  • Comment period closes July 26
  • CHAOSS Metrics Version 1 posted August 9


With respect to Grimoire Lab, during the last week GrimoireLab 0.2.24 was released. This version fixes minor errors related to the mapping in ElasticSearch for Bugzilla and Slack datasources. It also improves the readability of log messages.

With respect to Augur, they are getting to team off to the races, landing many planes with respect to tooling and metrics.
