Feature testing efforts[edit]

NPF/Curation is top priority right now AFTv5 still being tweaked Chris on docs review team for NPF

Beta labs[edit]

AFTv5 became misconfigured, fixing that in order to start making end-to-end tests for it during stable period. Also want to check that NPF is correct, and add latest UploadWizard to testable extensions. Note: while not in Jenkins (yet), AFTv5 and NPF/Curation are being automatically and correctly deployed to beta labs nightly.

Community testing planning[edit]

(none right now)

20% time wrangling[edit]

Sumana needs to write proposal - this week
