Short week as I was returning from my hen/bachelorette night and helped a friend move house.

Wednesday May 1st was a bank holiday here. There is a cute tradition in the region of Cologne Germany that boys will find a young birch tree, decorate it with ribbons, and leave it outside the house of their sweetheart for the 1st of May. On leap years, like this year, the girls do this for the boys :deciduous_tree: :ribbon: :two_hearts:
The May Tree – DW – 06/14/2007

The week was mostly focused on release blockers for Django 5.0.5 and prep to be able to release on May 6th.

This is also the end of my first month as Fellow :partying_face:

Thursday was also a bank holiday here (May has a lot).
The main thing of the week was issuing the release for the first time and it later getting yanked. Was a tough week but really appreciated those who supported and those who checked in.

  • Released Django 5.0.5 and 4.2.12 (with lots of help from Natalia), this release had a packaging issue due to being built on Windows and was then yanked
