      • Links between nightly/stable sites
      • Links between Classic/Volto sites.
  • Documentation
    • Katja is amazing, thank you!
    • Working to get doctests working again in plone.api.
    • Plone.api docs now included in main documentation
    • Next steps: conversion of plone.restapi docs from restructured text to MyST
    • Need help with writing/updating docs for:
      • Installation docs
      • Backend docs
      • Classic UI docs
    • Need to standardize installation instructions. Lacking clarity at the moment because of multiple installation paths. Also makes maintenance of installation docs difficult with instructions spread across multiple sources.
  • Release
    • Alpha 4 is out
    • Hoping for first beta late April/early May
    • Work towards Python 3.10 support continuing, can be introduced post-alpha.
