Updates to Django
Last week we had 11 pull requests merged into Django by 6 different contributors - including 1 first time contributor! Congratulations to Dan Jacob for having their first commit merged into Django - welcome on board!
Any bugs found in the new features of 5.0 are considered "Release blockers". We had 3 release blockers resolved last week (#34849, #34877, #34878) which were discovered by Mariusz Felisiak, Paolo Melchiorre and Dan Jacob. I want to thank each of you for testing 5.0 and uncovering these issues!
Testing 5.0 is a great way to contribute to this release and might even lead to your first commit to Django! There are even a couple of 5.0 Testathons planned as community events - sign up here if you're free: https://forms.gle/eqXBtCTa8V5KrL9h9
