ODK TAB Call - 2020-11-11

These calls bring together the Technical Advisory Board for the ODK suite (@TAB) to discuss roadmaps, working groups, and other issues of technical governance. Everyone is welcome to come to these calls, but only TAB members may talk.

The calls are held every two weeks in our UberConference room. We put the agenda, audio, and transcript of every call in this document.

Our next call will be Wed, ENTER_DATE_ONLY_HERE. The meeting time should be shown in your timezone above.

We've just posted the audio recording spec that will be discussed here.

If y'all have time during your roadmap check in, upcoming changes to the Let's Encrypt root is a time-sensitive topic that would be great to get your advice on.

Come January 2021, certificates issued by Let's Encrypt will be rooted by a certificate that Android versions below 7.1.1 do not know about. We have a straightforward fix for Android 6+ planned for Collect v1.29. It would be useful to hear from you all how important you think it is to look for a programmatic fix for Android 5/5.1 (it's possible to manually add a root CA for those versions). We know this will affect most folks who self-host Central or Aggregate. It may or may not affect folks using other servers.
