Please post below topics you would like to discuss at the meeting :point_down:

I’d like to add to the agenda that we welcome Aditya Laddha as the Google Summer of Code mentee and discuss his project.

I would like to give updates on peer-to-peer synchronization.

The draft design document is available from the link below. If you have a question or a suggestion feel free to comment on the document or on the Slack channel.

@linl33 Can you share any link that would be helpful for understanding the database schema used for storing the data?

The db schema will be the current schema with a few additional columns added. Description of these new columns are in the document. I will add some more information to make this more clear.

I am sorry. Due to a personal emergency, I was unable to show up for the call. I will try my best to attend the other one. Someone, please upload the recording.
