3-Open discussion




-          Speak about Entsoe :


During the summer of 2020, we came into contact with Olivier Aine from Entsoe. RTE talked about IS Tool which has been discontinued. As the ISTool was developed with TSO money, making it open source would require at least the digital committee and maybe the board. An action is therefore underway on the Entsoe side: to talk about it during a digital committee. At the same time, we asked if it is possible to verify the code. As in December we had no news, we relaunched them. We are therefore awaiting a response.




-          Open PR to anonymous:


Currently, it was not possible to open a PR if the person is not a member of the COMPAS project. Which could be counterproductive. We therefore decide to open PR to anonymous. Action to do.


-          LF email:


On slack, it was asked if the Compas project was opened with a generic account / email.According to Lucian, Compas was opened with a nominative account.The origin of this question was to be able to use a generic email to connect Compas to slack for example.Perhaps it is possible to create a generic lfenergy mailbox for Compas. Action to do.




-          Right of RABAH:


Rabah well knowns Github, that’s why even if Rabah is not member of TSC, it would be interesting to give him administrator Right on Github.


            This was approved by attendees (majority of TSC members) of this meeting.
