Calls for help/collaboration

Zia Fazal:
If I can get review from fellow CCs on this PR it would be great fix: added keyword substitution support in edx_ace based bulk course emails by ziafazal · Pull Request #31044 · openedx/edx-platform · GitHub

What should be improved?

Xavier Antoviaque:
Default more to discussing & working publicly from the start?

What has been worked on during the last sprint?

As Blockstore maintainer, started figuring out things to do to clean up the repository, and as a first step, opened a PR to update the README significantly.

Began researching how to use a bot to notify maintainers of PRs that need review, and escalate if they aren’t triaged in a timely fashion.

Helped with the TOC election campaign – I was mostly off for the past 2 weeks, and I’m planning to be mostly off for the coming 2 weeks also.
