+Releases
+========
+
+* Tails 3.14 is [[scheduled for May 21|contribute/calendar]].
+
+Code
+====
+
+- The [[Foundations
+ Team|contribute/working_together/roles/foundations_team]] met for
+ a sprint focused on porting Tails to Debian 10 (Buster):
+ [report](https://lists.autistici.org/message/20190408.075929.1c2952c0.en.html),
+ [next
+ steps](https://lists.autistici.org/message/20190429.091241.82e34497.en.html).
+- We finalized our criteria for including dictionaries, fonts and language packs,
+ which will be reflected in Tails 3.14.
+- We prototyped a USB image with Secure Boot support and GRUB, in order
+ to better understand what implementation difficulties we should expect.
+- We
+ [submitted](https://ikiwiki.info/todo/_Add_ikiwiki_PO-Plugin_to_ignore_languages/)
+ to ikiwiki upstream a branch that makes it keep PO files up-to-date
+ for a set of languages that are not ready to be enabled and visible
+ on the live website yet. This will allow us to merge into our main
+ Git repository changes made via our upcoming Weblate-based
+ translation platform, which supports languages whose
+ work-in-progress translation is not ready for prime-time yet.
+- We
+ [uploaded](https://tracker.debian.org/news/1038188/accepted-gnome-shell-3302-6-source-into-unstable/)
+ to Debian a few fixes for regressions in the GNOME on-screen keyboard.
+
+Hot topics on our help desk
+===========================
+
+1. Some users reported loosing the access to their persistent volume ([#10976](https://redmine.tails.boum.org/code/issues/10976))
+1. A few reported the "USB stick becomes unbootable boot after first boot" issue
+([#16389](https://redmine.tails.boum.org/code/issues/16389))
+1. Some issues caused by partially applied incremental upgrades ([#14754](https://redmine.tails.boum.org/code/issues/14754))
+
+Infrastructure
+==============
+
+- The Foundations Team started experimenting with GitLab for
+ [merge requests](https://salsa.debian.org/tails-team/tails/merge_requests/?scope=all&utf8=%E2%9C%93&state=merged).
+- We started looking into how GitLab could work for our issues
+ tracking and [[drafted a rough plan|blueprint/GitLab]].
+
+Funding
+=======
+
+- We started working on a proposal for [Mozilla Open Source Support
+ Awards](https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/moss/).

+ options](https://lists.autistici.org/message/20190429.094536.22d3598f.en.html)
+ regarding the future of Electrum in Tails. It seems there will be
+ a way forward, although it's unclear at this point how much effort
+ it will require from us.
