  1. (Blocked PRs go here)

Delayed / Needs Discussion

  1. Initial Performance Testing from Chris.  Needs revisiting / retesting prior to 7.0. 
    2. These performance tests were run prior to the work on "projections" (to limit the data returned by the REST API).  Therefore, it is likely performance is much improved, but needs verification testing.
  2. (REST Contract) Edit Homepage News:
    1. Delayed. General agreement (in meeting on March 21, 2019) that storing HTML in metadata fields is not really ideal behavior.  Metadata (from a librarian standpoint) tends to be free of format-related markup (as that allows for easier sharing, understanding of metadata.  Currently Community & Collection homepage information is HTML-based and is stored in metadata that is appropriate for a minor subset of information (like the title) but it is better to move large/rich text to bitstreams.  
    2. Proposal here is to consider storing HTML-based markup (for Site, Community & Collection homepages) in Bitstream(s) associated with the object in question.  May allow for more CMS-lite behavior in the future
    3. Timeline for this is uncertain.  Possibly in 7 or 8. May depend on how/whether it can be scoped.
