6.6 triage session are our priority and moving forward tickets which already are scheduled for the release is most needed task. If you want to lead some of them, they can be added on this schedule.

But if you are interested in particular component or user focus, for example to take care about RTL-tickets, this will be most welcome too.

Especially interested can be the session to scrub old tickets. We are continuously closing new tickets with the same topic in favor of existing ones and because these tickets are looking complicated just because they’re age not, so many contributors are eager to work on them, but there are actual treasures hidden among very difficult or tricky topics.
