Last Week in Node.js Working Groups - February 13, 2017

This past week in the Node.js Working Groups was pretty quiet. That said, the different projects saw some renewed activity in places that have been previously overlooked.

    • This release stream would be branched off of Node master with the most recent V8 patched in.
  • 💁 William Kapke, the recently elected Node.js Foundation individual board member, is creating a handbook for current and future individual board directors. [Pull Request]
  • 💬 The TSC is discussing how to best manage the Node project’s published npm modules, such as node-report, on npm. [Issue]
    • Options include using a @nodejs organization scope for all foundation packages.
  • 🚲 has been made more size-responsive for mobile devices. [Commit]
