    • Caused by the major update
    • cilias will post useful comments in Contributors forum
  • Filed bug 467814 for a separate article about places being locked.

  • “Images or animations do not show” overhaul waiting for review [1]
  • cilias will post summary of l10n feedback shortly

  • We need to get a tools server set up so we can do automated weekly metrics and other stuff on a dedicated server: bug 467829
  • bug 467018 causing trouble. zzxc to test and provide more info, and djst to bring this up during the sumodev meeting.
  • Blog schedule for this week is empty/open.
    • Publish an official blog schedule for the SUMO blog?
      • Doesn’t seem like it’s needed considering the team size and blogging frequency. We just want to make sure everyone doesn’t blog the same day.
