Checklist items for the v6.0 release
   (using the v5.91.0.900 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://plt.eecs.northwestern.edu/release-snapshots/

Note the nonstandard location!

The "Racket plus Tests" builds already include the test packages. If
you use a "Minimal Racket" build instead, install test packages
manually using "raco pkg install".
