Hello Catalyst Lovers and Users!
For this release we've moved issue tracking from Questhub to Github Issues. Questhub is fantastic but more people already have Github accounts, and Issues integrates pretty well with Github so its a no brainer to try. Here's the target list:
Mostly we have a collection of what I think are small and easy wins, including a few things around PSGI integration. Two items of note would be:
Which is a ticket to extract the component lookup code and clarify the lookup interface. The goal here is to make improving componet lookup and make something like Bread::Board integration easier down the road.
This is more of a research task where we want to find out what things we need to change to make sharing Catalyst session and authentication information with other PSGI applications mounted under a Catalyst controller. This has impact on Catalyst Six planning and compatibility.
So that's what we target for Holland, but of course your documentation fixes and bug patches are always welcome (check with me if you should branch off holland or master)
So the repository is open, and issues are ready for your votes / comments / complaints!

P.S. Why 'Holland'? As in the past I've codenamed the next release of Catalyst after a rare or endangered domesticated animal. In this case I've choosen the Holland chicken, which was bred right here in the USA and has a lot of great characteristics for the home chicken keeper and you can read more here: https://www.livestockconservancy.org/index.php/heritage/internal/holland
I have one of these birds myself and she's the favorite of all my older chickens. In fact she's amazingly friendly and has oftened choosen to hunt about in the grass near where I or my wife are working in the garden. A great bird to have particularly if you are in the North (she's quite cold hardy) and have the land to let her forage. As an added plus her black and white coloration gives her a edge against predators that hunt by sight.
