Volunteer Opportunity: Help With Our Maintainer Burnout Session 

As part of GitHub’s Maintainer Month (June), CHAOSS is hosting a one-hour interactive workshop on Maintainer Burnout. This is in the early stages of planning, but you can find more information in the initial planning document. We are currently working toward confirming a date and time, and the agenda. If you would like to help with this event, please reach out to Ruth Ikegah on the CHAOSS slack.

CHAOSS Meeting Changes

There are 2 meeting updates to be aware of:

  • No Asia Pacific Community Meeting this week because of the May Day holiday in China. The next meeting is May 18 at 8:00 am US Central/Chicago time.
  • The App Ecosystem Meeting is switching day and time to every other Tuesday at 1:00 pm US Central/Chicago time, starting May 10.

As always, these changes are reflected on the main CHAOSS calendar which you can subscribe to on the CHAOSS Participate page.

CHAOSS Web Content Meeting Revival

These meetings will happen every other Thursday at 9:00 am US Central/Chicago time, starting on May 12.
