Want a new 5.2 beta 1 before Plone Tagung, but have a couple things to fix/merge before that

  • Jens merged redirection-tool work during the meeting
    • discussion to merge sooner rather than later so a release can get out
  • Eric Steele will release as soon as ready

Timo asked to approve the Beethoven sprint as strategic. To work on Rest API, Volto. Trying to figure out new dates. Deemed as strategic.
