several of them volunteering to help move things along. The number of submitted patches from
'new names' in the month of May is in the double digits, and range from trivial one line fixes
to two major patches with over 1,000 changed lines each. The community is beginning to exercise
some of its decision making power by deciding about release tempo, future version schemes
and numbers, and a number of other internal plumbing issues. Much remains to be done in preparation
for the initial release, and those tasks are being identified. We also have a number of external
resources (bug tracker, wiki, CI) that are still awaiting migration.
