    1. Solr upgrade is ready to merge (already at +2).  Is everyone ready?
      1. This will affect developers (everyone needs to install Solr)
      2. This will also affect the demo REST API (next time it is updated)
    2. Finalizing the Workflow REST Endpoint PR:  Several key changes to the existing Discovery/Solr functionality.
      1. Creates a new interface "BrowsableObject" to represent anything indexable by Discovery/Solr (this used to require an object being an official `DSpaceObject`)
        1. Possibly rename to "IndexableObject" (i.e. it's an object that can be indexed)
      2. Adds new Constants for object types "WORKSPACEITEM", "WORKFLOWITEM", "WORKFLOW_POOL", "WORKFLOW_CLAIMED".  These are NOT DSpaceObjects, but are new BrowsableObjects (as they will be indexed in Discovery for the MyDSpace & Workflow user interface)
        1. Possibly rename "WORKFLOW_POOL" to "TASK_POOL" and "WORKFLOW_CLAIMED" to "TASK_CLAIMED"
        2. We don't need to index the ITEM individually when indexing the WORKSPACEITEM or WORKFLOWITEM (Andrea believes this to be true)
      3. Changes the Discovery REST response format slightly – it no longer returns "dspaceObject", but now returns "resultObject" (as not all results are DSpaceObjects)
    3. (tentative. lower priority) Edit Homepage News:
      1. Reporting back on implementation suggestions/ideas.  Do we implement as metadata on the Site object (similar to Community/Collection news sections)?
    4. (add a discussion topic)
