Mukunda[edit]

  • Blocked by:
  • Blocking:
  • Updates:
    • I've been out for two weeks so just now finally feeling oriented
    • Paired with Brennen about gitlab+phab integration. Getting dev environment set up to get started on that work.
    • Contacted Mozilla and Twitter regarding Phorge and future plans, hoping to encourage those orgs to participate in phorge upstream because their clout will lend credibility to the phorge phork.
    • Preparing a data cubed demo. Hope to have something to show very soon.
