I want to add an fpm specific item to the agenda, which requires some discussion and feedback:


Would it be good to also introduce test-drive?

Sounds like a good idea, we can discuss it together with Add testing module to allow better structuring of test suites by awvwgk · Pull Request #494 · fortran-lang/stdlib · GitHub as practical example.

Our next monthly call will be on Wednesday, September 22 at 14:00 UTC .

7:00 - 8:00 PDT (California)
15:00 - 16:00 BST (London)
16:00 - 17:00 CEST (Central Europe)

As previously, the meeting will be recorded for those who cannot attend.
