Paris Pittman has retired from the Steering Committee as well as several other roles. Please join us in thanking Paris, who has done more to make Kubernetes an awesome project for contributors than possibly anyone else. She is succeeded on the Steering Committee by Carlos Panato.
Etcd has announced some new data consistency bugs. Please upgrade etcd on your clusters to 3.4.22 or 3.5.6 as soon as you can.
Next Deadline: Docs Complete, November 29th
Just a few more things to finish off before 1.26 goes out, mostly the documentation and the feature blog.
CI signal is OK but not great, with no tests failing (but some flaking) on master-blocking and a few failing on master-informing, particularly cgroupv1-conformance. If this is something you can help with, please jump in. In general, please treat any failing test issues in your notifications as extremely urgent until 1.26 is released.
