Updates to Django

Updates to Django

From Django Review and Triage Team Member Sarah Boyce...

Last week we had 10 pull requests merged into Django by 8 different contributors - including 1 first time contributor! Congratulations to Yaser Amiri for having their first commit merged into Django - welcome on board!

Now, from Django 5.0, @sensitive_variables and @sensitive_post_parameters supports async functions!

Are you excited to contribute but not know where to start? Maybe you're interested in migrations? You could add logging of applied/unapplied migrations #24800and then you'd be perfect to add contributor documentation for django.db.migrations #24989! Look forward to welcoming you on board!
