Upcoming freeze goals for clojure-team!

Greetings programs,

The bullseye freeze has been announced! We are targeting a release in
early 2021. Soft freeze is scheduled for 2020-02-12. See more at the
Bullseye Release Policy webpage.[1]

And since that's the case, it might be time to revisit our goals for the
bullseye release. Note that we have a Clojure/Goals page on the wiki.[2]

Let me quickly discuss what's currently listed:

* Update Clojure to 1.11, when available.

  Clojure 1.11 has not been announced so it is unlikely it will make it
  into bullseye. However, it should be relatively straightforward to
  package if it is released in the next 3 months.

* Update other Clojure packages.

  Leiningen needs an upgrade. The 2.9.[23] releases had critical bugs
  which is why we didn't take them, but 2.9.4 is stable and available.
  It requires some new dependency uploads and changes. I am hoping to
  get some time to look into it this weekend.

  Puppet development is underway in order to also bump Puppet in
  bullseye to the 6.x series. The Puppet Team needs our support in
  upgrading some of their dependencies. Kudos to all our new
  contributors from that team!

* Upload new CLI tools.

  rlb seems interested in this and is tracking this, although I don't
  know if he owns the ITP (might still be assigned to me). The link is
  here.[3] The biggest blocker, last I checked, was that jgit had not
  been updated in 4+ years.

Do reply to this thread if there's anything else, and please help keep
the wiki up to date if there's anything I've missed...
