Roadmap planning

  • Which items targeted for 0.93 are still doable in available timeframe? Ensure all 0.93-targeted items are assigned to an active developer. Push remaining items to future milestones.
  • What else must be achieved before we can release 1.0? Make sure roadmap reflects it. Move anything extraneous to post-1.0 or to other lists.

Suggestions from Community

  • Extensions: Update to Python 3 before Python 2 is deprecated.
