  • #22383, #32434, #32503 are all committed and closed. 👍
  • Originally #31240 seemed kind of off the table for 4.3, but it seems very possible now. @jeremyfelt will take a shot at getting that prepped for next week.
  • Once these are both in, we should start having some validation questions pretty soon.

  • We need to iterate some more on the other existing patches.

Other items:

  • @jeremyfelt owes an HTTPS in multisite post still. Maybe by tomorrow?
