Documentation Standardization Project Continues
You may have seen recent discussions and PRs around standardizing documentation across working groups. We will be continuing the standardization to include:

Huge thanks to Yash and Ritik for their continued work on this project! ✨ You can read Yash’s post to the mailing list here.
