Hi All,

Here are the minutes from this week's TechCom meeting:

* RFC Meeting on RFC 2019 Process Amendments
<> on 21 August at 2pm
Pacific/23:00 CEST/21:00 UTC in #wikimedia-office

* Hosted remote/in person meeting from Wikimania Hackathon

* Discussed: <> Generalize
ParserCache into a generic service class for large "current"
page-derived data.
     * Summary:
          * general support for the idea of having a generic store for
artifacts derived from page content ("cache" seems a misleading term)
          * functionality should be implemented internally to MW core
for now, based on the storage infrastructure of the existing
          * making such functionality available to standalone services
raises concerns, e.g. about checking access permissions
          * we may want a way to add access flags to the cached objects
          * ParserCache can already store multiple variants. The new
system would just add the ability to add other things beyond variants,
and to store them for more than just the latest revision of a page.
