New CHAOSScast Released: Episode 57 – The Ins and Outs of Large Scale Research with Hilary Carter

This week we were so honored to be joined by Hilary Carter, the VP Research for the Linux Foundation! Hilary chats with host Georg Link, and panelists Kate Stewart and Sophia Vargas about the way that the LF approaches the large scale research projects that many others rely on in their work. They talk about the planning process, creating surveys and collecting trace data, and how we can all collaborate and share insights with each other. This is an episode you won’t want to miss, and you can listen here:

New Issue Templates in the Working Groups’ Repos

Shout out to Matt Germonprez who set up all the working group repositories with three issue templates:

These templates include guidance for form and structure and when applicable, checklists for metrics quality assurances. Standardizing them across working groups is a great step toward making it easier for contributors to open issues, ensuring we are collecting all the necessary information, and completing all the steps for releasing our metrics.
