* Next ET Release

Scheduled for next week.

** Gallery Examples

BBH, Cheng-Hsin is doing it and said he would make the plots a few days 
ago and create a pull request.

Scalar Multipatch, Bill is unable to run on his local cluster 
successfully, worked 10 days ago,  but on his laptop fine.  Steve ran a 
set of testsuites after Bill shared these problems and the ET seems 
fine---likely a local environment/cluster issue.

Poisson, Miguel G, updated the website last week and went fine.

TOV star, Peter D, ran it and it worked fine.  Produced the plot with 
Kuibit and in the process of updating the website.  Some link issues on 
his side slowing down the website update.

BNS, Alexandru, done and uploaded already.

** Release announcement in markdown format in the repository---people 
need to look it over.  There is the list of contributors and release 
team, especially look at those.  Sandbox Zenodo draft there and that 
should get looked over too.  See 
https://sandbox.zenodo.org/record/971828#.YaZKVdDMJcE .

** Updating the repo and see that you need to regenerate Baikal, etc.  
Baikal looks broken when the update was tried.  Zach, will take a look, 
seems to be a missing function.  Kranc generated thorns.  Tried 
Maclachlan and script failed to run, but machine had an old version of 
Mathematica 10.  Roland, where were issues with using Math 12, missing 
function.  Maybe Mathematica 11 is necessary.  Need someone to use a 
Mathematica 11 installation. Roland, think it build last time with 
version 12 and the hack he had figured out.  See issue on Kranc at 
https://github.com/ianhinder/Kranc/issues/151 .

** Will modify the release schedule, to move up the generation of Baikal 
and the Kranc thorns...will backdate those so the next folks do them 

** Remind Roland to get in the remaining testsuites.

** Details of the release will be next week.  Had already postponed to 
Dec 8th.

* Unanswered questions
[https://www.einsteintoolkit.org/tools/unanswered.php unanswered 
question on mailing list]

Roland, Con2prim is tricky, no easy answer.

Kranc question should go to Ian Hinder, he keeps his own tickets.  
Roland thinks he replied to it, maybe not to the list.
