GitHub: Lots of activity in GitHub, but nothing “controversial” that needs to be discussed in the WSG meeting.

WSG Co-chairs meeting with Matt Hall, UCSB CIO went well. Funding approved for the 2016-2017 year. Co-chairs shared with Matt what WSG was all about. He asked what he could do for us, we suggested some more visibility to bring in new blood and reinvigorate others to help with WSG’s mission. We chatted about better centralizing services such as using Pantheon to host Drupal sites. This topic had some good discussion in the group.
