For the last 3 months, I’ve been working on VaccinateCA, a community-driven organization that discovers and publishes COVID-19 vaccination sites in California. There are many vaccine site and vaccine appointment aggregators, with different scopes and goals. has the most complete list of vaccination sites in California. There’s a lot I could say about contributing to VaccinateCA and the vaccine rollout, which I’ll hopefully cover one day when I have more time.

Recently, I noticed something odd in my kitchen. The “Hot Cooktop” light was on, and sure enough, one of the hotplates was warm. I was initially confused, having supposedly turned the stove off hours prior. The “Cooktop On” light was off, as I expected. Do you see what happened? The offending stove dial. Not pictured is the orange "Hot Cooktop" light. One dial was on, albeit at a very low setting.

What Happened In the most recent Kubernetes SIG-Network meeting (2020-04-02), a meta issue was raised. People had noted a decrease in new network-related issues. The reason, it was discovered, wasn’t that new issues weren’t being filed. It was that new issues weren’t being labelled in the way they were normally labelled. The Kubernetes Github repo has a fixed set of issue labels, which are managed by a bot (through automatic triggers, and comment commands).
