  • There is a long pull request in the ecmascript-modules for refactoring the scoped --type in cpp, since with the current implementation, there is an edge case of --type that doesn't quite work.
  • In the package-maintenance repo, there is a pull request for support files, including:
    • The support tag become a support file
    • All the values are lower-case as suggested during the OpenJS Summit
    • Add new keys as discussed in the issue
  • The mentorship repo is being discussed to add Barbra as a knowledge repository to supplement its mission of empowering and teaching the Node community.
  • The Quic protocol needs a lot of testing as it was suggested in this issue If you want to help with the implementation, that's probably the one area that would be the most valuable for the protocol.
  • In the Security Working Group of Node.js, there is an ongoing discussion for the current state of signed packages
