REMINDER: New Zoom Link Coming November 1

Our Community and Working Group calls are an integral part of how we get stuff done here at CHAOSS, and we want to make sure everyone knows that we will be switching to a new Zoom link for them starting November 1.  This will be provided by the Linux Foundation (thanks friends!) and will be more open and have broader shared ownership than the one graciously being provided from the University of Nebraska. Of course, we will be posting this information in all the right places, this is just a heads-up that the change is coming.

CHAOSScast Episode 21: Ria Gupta and Venu Vardhan Reddy Tekula

In this episode, we highlighted the awesome work of Ria Gupta and Venu Vardhan Reddy Tekula as two of our GSOC students working on extending GrimoireLab. You can join our hosts Venia Logan and Dylan Marcy as they talked about each of their projects and their GSOC experience with CHAOSS. We were thrilled to have Ria and Venu participate as students and encourage you to listen in as they shared their experiences.

ICYMI SustainOSS is our New CHAOSScast Sponsor! Hooray!

In case you missed it last week, we just wanted to extend another huge shoutout to our new CHAOSScast sponsor, SustainOSS. Sustain is all about leading discussions on sustaining open source in the long-haul. They meet once per year in person and have an active forum throughout the year. You can join their conversations at and @SustainOSS on Twitter. We are so grateful for their support and for helping CHAOSScast stay around. Thank you, friends!

CHAOSScast Keeping Bi-Weekly Cadence

For the time being, CHAOSScast will remain on a bi-weekly release schedule. We are also looking for new and interesting voices on the podcast, so if you have someone in mind that you think would be an excellent fit to talk about open source metrics, please let Elizabeth know ( She’d love to connect with them!
