    1. REST API discussion:  Reminder to all (self included) which endpoints can support which methods
      1. Per our Contract README:
      2. Multiple Resource (i.e. Collection) Endpoints (e.g. /items) may support only POST and GET
      3. Single Resource Endpoints (e.g. /items/:uuid:) may support GET, HEAD, PUT, PATCH and DELETE
      4. Sub-paths only act on associations between resources (e.g./items/:uuid:/mappedCollections), and only allow GET, PUT, POST, DELETE of those associations.
        1. We may need to revisit the decisions in these two recent PRs:
          1. (Community & Collection Logo).  Should PUT/DELETE just use /bitstreams/<:logo_uuid>? (as Logos are Bitstreams!)
          2. (Collection Item Templates).  Should PATCH/DELETE just use /items/<:itemtemplate_uuid>? (as Templates are Items!)
    2. Revisiting REST API Projections:
    3. topic for this week or next?) Julius Gruber had questions around multi-language support for Submission forms on SlackRevisiting our Code Review processes for PRs
      1. Up until now, all PRs require two code reviewers
      2. As we've seen, this provides good feedback, but can cause review/implementation delays if only one reviewer can be identified in a timely fashion
      3. This issue was brought to Steering Group.  Recommendation is to consider allowing for single reviewers for smaller / more obvious PRs, with option of that reviewer asking for an additional reviewer if they find something requiring additional feedback.
    4. Reviewing & scoping tasks flagged as "NEEDS MORE INFO" in Development Planning Spreadsheet
      1. This is necessary to prepare for the next phase of the DSpace 7 Estimation Process
