Alrighty, looks like we're in agreement for a soon release.
Let's take inventory of issues to still include:
- [FLINK-9554] flink scala shell doesn't work in yarn mode
I'm currently taking a look and will probably merge it by the end of
- [FLINK-9676] Deadlock during canceling task and recycling exclusive
Till is taking a look to gauge how critical/fixable it is; we may not
fix it in this release.
- [FLINK-9707] LocalFileSystem does not support concurrent directory
Till opened a PR that I'm reviewing at the moment.
- [FLINK-9693] Set Execution#taskRestore to null after deployment
Till opened a PR, i guess i can take a look unless anyone else wants to.
I will cut the release-branch this evening; this should be enough time
to fix the above issues. (except maybe FLINK-9676 of course)

I think now is a good time to start thinking about a 1.5.1 release,
for which I would volunteer as the release manager.
There are a few issues that I'm aware of that we should include in
the release , but I believe these should be resolved within the
So that we don't overlap with with proposed 1.6 release  we
ideally start the release process this week.
What do you think?
