Meeting Agenda:

Please add your agenda items in replies.

  1. Containerizing Stan interfaces
    • Docker thread on Discourse
    • What are the use cases for containers in our community?
    • What are the Stan dependencies and supplementary packages that should be included in an image?
  2. CmdStan file names defaults
    • Issue thread on GitHub
    • For workflows using distributed systems or local disk on a compute node, auto-generated filenames with start of run-time in the name is problematic.
    • For repeated work on a personal machine, the defaults are fine.
