== Stuff to do every week ==

    Let's check and update our roadmap:

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

    All the trac tickets for the roadmap are in the team's page:

    S28 & S30 - Continue after October - Ahf

    S55 - Nickm & dgoulet

    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:

    Go over our 0.4.4 status page at
. (If maint-0.4.4 were released as stable tomorrow, what would we
regret?) - scheduled to enter feature freeze on Monday June 15th

== 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.
