2018 Edition End of Week Post (2018-07-13)


#1

This is the weekly Edition Status Update; it contains the state of the content areas surveyed this week. Since this is the first post, we were unable to get status updates from every group, but we will try to make that happen next week. Each content area lists the blocking issues for the Preview 2 milestone described here, which is scheduled for 2018-08-02. In addition, some areas highlight important news or places where contribution is needed.

You can track the full issue burndown on this spreadsheet.

If you are listed as a team leader below, please sign up for one of the time slots for weekly edition status triage.
