Checklist items for the v5.0.1 release
  (using the v5.0.0.900 release candidate build)

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.racket-lang.org/release/installers

Please use these installers (or source bundles) -- don't test from
your own git clone (don't test v5.0.1.1 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 x

    load into racket or drracket (as appropriate)

  - Typed Scheme Tests

  Version Updates: if a major change has happened, update the version
  number in:

  - racket/collects/mred/info.rkt

* Shriram Krishnamurthi <sk at cs.brown.edu>
  Tour: check the tour and generate a new one if needed.
  [Note: Since this is a v5.0.0.900 build, you will need to edit your
  file and change `(version)' to `"5.0.1"'.]
