Dev Chat Summary: May 1

Announcements

Josepha (@chanthaboune) has published a 5.0 retrospective wrap up. There are two questions at the end of the post that you are encouraged to discuss in the comments. Thank you for the time and care you have put into this, Josepha! You can find this retrospective wrap up at the following post:

5.2 updates

RC2 is planned for tomorrow with the target release date ~5 days (May 7).

Josepha brought attention a few items pending:

  1. #47093 – related to the recovery mode email translations. There’s a potential solution being worked on, but it needs review.
  2. #47070 – related to the Recovery Mode Exit button. Design input and a patch is needed, and then it will also need review.
  3. #46901 – related to the About page. A final patch is incoming that will need review.

Most tasks pending for the above tickets have an owner, but it was mentioned by Jonathan (@desrosj) that particular testing and attention to #47093 – recovery mode email translations is encouraged and appreciated.

@audrasjb asked for an idea of the timing for RC 2 tomorrow. Josepha mentioned that it will likely be in the windows of between 1430-1630 UTC and again around 2030 UTC. The earlier window is preference.

5.3

It would be great to start planning scope/teams/timing etc. for 5.3. (potential agenda item for next week!) Jonathan mentioned that we may be able to start the 5.3 branch in trunk after RC2 has released.
