      • https://github.com/pkp/pkp-lib/issues/1923

      • Lost in the weeds of GridHandler RoleAssignments
    • Release Notifications
      • Concern about how Admins, Managers, Editor, etc. are notified of new and changed features and configuration
        • tags for features and bug fixes - Alec is looking for feedback
      • Does this tie into the development pipeline?
        • there might be uses for Github projects as well as Github tags.

Release Progress (Alec)

  • 3.0.1 release from master branch scheduled for today. Implications for OMP release as 3.1 in parallel
    • When should people be migrating? Wait for 3.1 if you need subscription module, 3.0.0 is stable so you can go ahead now with some test migration. Always do a complete backup including files directory
