Upcoming freeze goals for clojure-team!

We have not started working on Clojure 1.11 yet so I wouldn't hold your
breath on that one. :) However, I think there is a good chance we will
release 1.10.2 in that timeframe, which is just a bug fix release (in
particular, has some critical bug fixes for Graal usage).

jgit has still not been updated in the tools deps tree. It's not a
straightforward upgrade (would probably switch from jsch to apache mina as
well) and we continue to contemplate swapping it for shelling out to git
which has been spiked out. At some point, I'll have some cycles to focus on
this but not sure when.
