Topics for This Week

Meeting Free Week
Next week is Meeting Free Week, which although it might only be observed by a handful of people, has the benefit of canceling this meeting next week. Plan accordingly.

Bugs for known regressions have landed. There might be unknown ones caused by the 3.43 uplift.
