Personal note - (early) parental leave and minimal edition

Some fun news I hadn't shared yet: my wife and I are expecting our second daughter to arrive within a month! I've decided to make full use of Articulate's (my employer) generous policies and am taking some pro-active time off to get things in order.
There will be quite a few minimal issues the next few weeks and months, and maybe a week or two around the birth itself where I don't send anything. I hope y'all understand, family-first :-)
