  6. Development week in review (djmitche, 17:45:42)
    1. Lots of fixes and work this week - DB compatibility in particular (dustin & rutsky) (djmitche, 17:46:33)
    2. And a lot of fixes that went into the beta7 release (djmitche, 17:46:48)
    3. We also fixed the "zombie apocalypse" where twistd running in a Docker container accumulates hundreds of zombie children, since it is not an init process (djmitche, 17:47:29)

  7. BR 1994 - install service_identity in Travis to silence Twisted's warnings (djmitche, 17:49:45)
  8. idea: gather questions from StackOverflow with tags #buildbot at translate them in irc channel (djmitche, 17:53:02)
    1. idea is that a bot would post to the irc channel when a new question is asked on stackoverflow (djmitche, 17:58:07)
    2. AGREED: the idea is sound, but nobody has signed on to do it (djmitche, 17:58:28)
    3. ACTION: rutsky to file bug (djmitche, 17:59:17)
    4. ACTION: koobs to prototype this using MattDaemon (djmitche, 17:59:26)
