- Future of supporting 32-bit machines
- Kernel 5.x?
- Clarifying, reworking or dropping the location filter
- Core Update 153
- Core Update 154
- Close Threads which belong to bugs like 1, 2 - We need this info in Bugzilla or not?

Core Update 153
- Big update with many important changes
- Kept open until tomorrow due to scheduled OpenSSL released
- Michael writes changelog and ensures the correct code is executed on
- Some complains regarding Suricata 6 load (mailing list post), but they do not seem to be reproducible
- Peter gets in contact with other people as soon as there is a changelog available
- Release ETA: Weekend before Christmas
Clarifying, reworking or dropping the location filter
- People seem to think the location filter has a security impact. It has not.
- It's sole purpose is to reduce noise in the logs
- Causes more often confusion than it solves problem
- Technical effort for replacing or extending it needs to be clarified further
Core Update 154
- Matthias sent several patches already
- Michael is in charge
Web interface: Plans to go?
- Fix bugs first, they need to be tagged in BZ (Peter takes care of this and assigns them to Leo)
- Portability to IPFire 3 would be nice, but is a bigger task at the moment
- Kernel 5.10 is not finally released, probably released before Christmas
- Kernel 5.9 is much slower for unknown reasons at the time of writing
- ETA: Q1/2021
Future of supporting 32-bit machines
- Agreed on discontinuing 32-bit support, scheduled EOL 31st December 2021
- Kernel 5.9 works on 32-bit as well, but future is rather patchy
- 32-bit causes more and more pain for diminishing user base
- Will be announced broadly
- Decision regarding 32-bit ARM will be made in January
- Requires major LDAP changes, Michael is in charge here (#12218)
