Probably last thing before we make the official release. There is a windows libpack packaging/3rd-party dependency issue that is blocking release ATM.

@uwestoehr can we ask the devs, testers, and power-users to move their attention to documentation and solving open translations issues?
If each dev could help make a list of open/pending documentation needs (for their respective workbenches) since not all features or 'known issues' for certain functions/tools get updated in the wiki even though they've been fixed or modified. In other words, Sketcher folks can divy up the Sketcher workbench wiki pages, check for accuracy, make a list and help orient documentation writers (or they could do it themselves) what needs modifying.

Also, continuing with the Sketcher workbench as an example, if a dev could log in to the crowdin and look at all the open issues that translators have flagged for Sketcher related translations.

Regarding the workbench sketcher and the Crowdin environment
there is one unsolved issue:

Sure. Just post in this thread: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=66407

If there are issues they should be reported to our main issue tracker. This way they will be fixed quickly.

This is a good suggestion. Actually, I've modified some old translations which I think are Inappropriate. I'll leave comments in the open issue as a remark.

Probably not. There are pages in that list that I would consider finished and, on the other hand, unfinished pages that are not included. Also keep in mind that a 'finished' page can be out of date.

Therefore I shouldn't use this as an orientation and check look through the workbenches "I know" instead?
