What did we ship this month? Alternatively, what didn't we ship to spare the world the horror?
- (mythmon) Normandy (the SHIELD service) is going to ship a new admin interface and client-side filtering! It's a bunch of React/Redux!
- (peterbe) Google Sign-In on Socorro (almost)
- (erikrose) DXR stuff: description column, whitespace in paths, VCS mod dates, per-line blame links, language badging
Any updates with our libraries or with libraries we use? Anyone looking for help with a library they maintain?
- (pmac) I won't be at the meeting, but wanted to mention here that I recently forked jingo-markdown, updated it for use with django-jinja, and released it as django-jinja-markdown. It's pretty simple but we were using it on bedrock and so now we still can. Hopefully others find it useful as well.

- (irc nick of new person) New Person
Anything else to talk about?
- (ErikRose) Getting Things Done. I'm about a month into using GTD, and it's dispelled the gnawing guilt I constantly had before. My inboxes have also been empty for weeks, and it's been easy, to the point where I wonder if my mail is broken; I never managed that before for more than a few days. Is anybody else using GTD or similar systems? I'd love to exchange tips and tweaks.
