WordPress 5.5.1 maintenance release schedule

Shortly after WordPress 5.5 “Eckstine” was released, a small handful of tickets were opened reporting identified bugs. Because a few of them are particularly inconvenient, 5.5.1 will be a short-cycle release so that they can be addressed more quickly.

The full list of the tickets targeted for this maintenance release is available on the 5.5.1 tickets report on Trac.

The 5.5.1 release is being lead by @audrasjb, @azhiyadev, @davidbaumwald, @desrosj, @johnbillion, @planningwrite, @sergeybiryukov, @whyisjake.
