Did you drop the last digit of the first two tickets you’re reporting on here? The both refer to ticket 3511.

Yes, I’m very sorry! They are 35115 and 35110 respectively. I have edited the post. Thank you! :blush:

Intense week! I tried to push forward as many PRs as I could, mainly because next week (week 9) I’ll be “OoO” (Out of the Office). Summer school for the kids ended last Friday, and “regular” school doesn’t start until the 4th, so I need to take the week off. We’re trying to make the best of the situation by organizing a family trip! :red_car:

  • Security reports/patches review.
