You might have heard that we need to upgrade the Open edX platform to Django 3.2 by October 9th (in 8 weeks ).
December 9th is the release date for Maple. As part of the release process, we aim to branch out Maple master branch 8 weeks before the release to give ourselves enough time to test the release.
By committing our own time and taking on tickets on the django upgrade project board. To make sure we do our part in supporting this effort, the group has discussed the idea of committing to a weekly target.
I personally think that 4 tickets per week is a good place to start. We usually have between 8 and 10 attendees in the Bi-weekly meetup. If we each take one ticket every two weeks can help make a significant dent in that list.
