builds@ meeting co-coordinator

I Gavin McDonald would like to resume regular Monthly CI/CD/builds related live meetings
via Google Meet. Sometimes I do not get the time to organize and it would be great to have
at least one backup who can set up a meeting and schedule, co-ordinate on the builds@
mailing list.

Same day/time each month would be ideal.
I have been aiming for 2nd Thursday of the month
at around 4PM UTC

infra.apache.org website re-design

infra.apache.org website design is basic, but works. Ideally it should be improved to a more
modern look and feel; whilst also adhering to various web accessibility standards.

The current site uses Pelican, and we are not looking to move away from that, but rather
look to create a new 'theme' that can be applied.

  • With .asf.yaml it is easy to create a
    staging site area for previews.
  • Work on a branch for ease of merging
    later.
  • Other resources such as a dedicated Slack
    channel can be created




Anything else?
Feel free to find and talk to Infra Staff on Slack #asfinfra if you have other volunteer ideas.
