  • Eric (Release): 5.1 is in pending status. We’ll get a final 5.0.x bugfix release out. 4.3.x will continue to see bugfix releases until 6.0 is released.
    • Plone 5.1 is soft released. What is the target release date? Try for March 1. Earlier would be problematic, as we need docs and human-readable release notes still.
  • Steve (Installers): there’s something in ZODB that requires Python 2.7.9+, which could potentially be a problem for Trusty Tahr Ubuntu. We should investigate, maybe it’s reversible, otherwise it should be documented.
  • Kim: take a crack at human readable release notes, unless Maurits is available to help (must ping him).
  • Sven (Docs):
    • Sprint in the spring, Amsterdam?
    • Deployment written in Go (would need help if Python is a requirement)
    • Screenshots are now truly automated (thanks Gil!)
  • Eric: check status of for 4.3.15 and 5.0.9. 4.3.15 link is fixed now.
  • Kim: get Alexander a copy of ZODB for testing the addonlistings and security hotfix add-on
  • Vincent (i18n): An i18n issue in reset password template has been fixed in Plone 5.1, new release with updated Traditional Chinese, German, Spanish translations.
  • Sven (Admin & Infrastructure):
    • please rename linode linode299650 (Kim renamed to plone_io)
    • Need to upgrade the Discourse forum server
    • Working closely with Oz Tiram
    • Short-handed, could use more people helping
  • Alexander (Security): no news is good news
