The Lino Mentori test suite is still failing on GitLab. Obviously the environment there still uses a version of the xl where still declares as a dependency. Did I forget to release the xl to PyPI? Let’s try:

$ go xl
$ git status
On branch master
Your branch is up to date with 'origin/master'.
nothing to commit, working tree clean
$ inv sdist release
ABORT: lino-xl 20.10.0 has already been released.

Aris had a few questions about the source code of Lino Mentori. This made me understand that the README.rst of a Lino application (i.e. also in Algus) should explain in a few sentences where to find the entry point. Because at the moment it is quite intimidating, even for an experienced Django site admin, to try to understand the code repository of a Lino application.
