Congratulations and enormous thanks to the participants in this week's Bug
Squashing Week for making it another very successful community activity!

Some highlights of the week:

   - The complicated project to consolidate the patron alerts, messages,
   and notes <https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1846354> into a
   single interface has been given one last test and accepted into core
   - The overhaul of the triggered event log
   <https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1207533> (which shows staff
   when messages were sent to patrons for preminders, holds, and overdues,
   among other things) has been completed and will now work for large
   libraries and consortiums!
   - The Holds Pull List <https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1919465>
   has been angularized (ie, rewritten in current Angular code), tested, and
   accepted into core Evergreen.
   - A significant amount of testing was done on the overhaul of the patron
   interfaces <https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1904036>.
   - A number of small usability improvements have been completed and added
   to core Evergreen for both the OPAC and the staff client, including using
   the patron's preferred name on the staff catalog Place Hold screen
   <https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1924621>,  improving the tab
   order of the OPAC login screen
   <https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1909144>, adding the ability
   to see the number of circulations by year
   <https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1743611> on the item status
   screen, a fix to the pending address bug
   <https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1821804> with patron save &
   clone, preventing staff from logging in to the staff client with
   old/outdated card numbers
   <https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1844121>, the place hold
   button in the staff client will now be grayed out if no copies on the
   record are available for holds
   <https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1929587>, and many more!
   - Numerous internal code and sysadmin bug fixes and performance
   improvements have been also tested and accepted into core Evergreen.
   - And the core committers broke all previous Bug Squashing Week records
   and committed a whopping 47 fixes and features to core Evergreen!
