Day 1 & 2 critical sprint update!, by xjm
- Yesterday contributors started investigating known performance issues as well as other known critical, and today work on many criticals is underway. We have an "IRL issue queue" to help contributors find tasks and collaborate: https://twitter.com/xjmdrupal/status/587929796354691072
- One critical has already been fixed, three were demoted to lower priorities following research indicating that they did not need to block release, and of the remaining 44, 20 have been updated during the sprint!
- 35 total patches have been committed during the sprint so far.
- Today we started profiling to identify new performance issues. https://www.drupal.org/node/2470679 has some notes. Photos in https://twitter.com/xjmdrupal/status/587928032071053313 and https://twitter.com/xjmdrupal/status/588068075934724097.
- Lots of work disentangling and re-scoping critical and major issues related to the session and authentication API. See https://www.drupal.org/node/2371629, https://www.drupal.org/node/2468873, https://www.drupal.org/node/2228393, https://www.drupal.org/node/2283637, and particularly the critical that was unearthed and already fixed to simplify the others https://www.drupal.org/node/2437761
- Some discussion and work on https://www.drupal.org/node/2343035 which is a high-risk critical blocking other work (including performance issues and other criticals)
- Issues from the D8 Accelerate sprint are being tracked under https://www.drupal.org/project/issues/search?issue_tags=D8%20Accelerate%20Dev%20Days (some not yet tagged)
D8Rules, by Dasjo
Hey, we are still working on tickets (cannot stop). You should really check out this page, because it lists the work of more than a dozen of crazy people working on Rules for drupal 8. https://www.drupal.org/project/issues/rules?version=8.x

Contrib corner day 2, by wizonesolutions
I filed a bug regarding the Views documentation: https://www.drupal.org/node/2470753
I found that the bug regarding views_embed_view was already filed (https://www.drupal.org/node/2208811), so I'm currently working on re-rolling that to try to move that issue forward. I left off getting a Drupal VM set up so I could run the tests (there were certain test failures from the changed code that I will likely have to fix again)
So on Wednesday, I plan to continue that as well as refining my presentation slides.
