Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware
of?

We discovered a private Gitter channel for committers that was created during
the days when the Git project was owned by Airbnb. When the Github project’s
ownership moved to the ASF, so did that of all the Gitter channels. We killed
the channel - all committers left the channel and can no longer even
see/discover it.
