    Let's check and update our roadmap:

    What's done, and what's coming up? Any change?

    Board: https://gitlab.torproject.org/groups/tpo/core/-/boards

    S28 & S30 - Continue after October - Ahf - maybe dgoulet can do some
of this after August?

    S55 - Nickm & dgoulet, ends 15 August

    Non sponsor stuff

    DoS defenses = Dgoulet + Asn

    Library Size reduction = Ahf + Dgoulet

    sbws = Ahf + Juga

    Check reviewer assignments! How reviews from last week worked? Any
blocker? Here are the outstanding reviews, oldest first, including sbws:

    Merge requests in Core:


    Let's check out 0.4.4 release status and open tickets!

    Tickets in 0.4.4.x with no owner.









    Core Tor Releases:

== Reminders ==

* Remember to "/me status: foo" at least once daily.
* Remember that our current code reviews should be done by end-of-week.
* Make sure you are in touch with everybody with whom you are doing work
for the next releases.

* Check other's people call for help in their entries.

    Volunteers need help. Please help them when you are around. Maybe we
should have times of day when different people are responders, and
expectations of who helps.
