Checklist items for the v5.0 release
  (using the v4.90.0.1 release candidate build)

*** Note: planet and bugs are both using racket-lang.org now, and the web
*** server for both domain should be operational.  (They should both
*** be the same as the plt-scheme.org sites.)

Search for your name to find relevant items, reply when you finish an
item (please indicate which item/s is/are done).  Also, if you have any
commits that should have been picked, make sure that the changes are in.

Important: new builds are created without announcement, usually whenever
I pick a few commits.  If you need to commit changes, please make sure
you tell me to pick it into the release branch.

--> Release candidates are at
-->   http://pre.plt-scheme.org/release/installers

Please use these installers (or source bundles) -- don't test from
your own git clone (don't test v5.0.0.1 by mistake!).  To get
the tests directory in such a directory, you can do this:
  cd ...racket-root...
  git archive --remote=git://git.racket-lang.org/plt.git release \
      -- collects/tests | tar xf -
