Last Week in Node.js Working Groups - June 12th

Last week we began a return to a normalized amount of activity in the Node.js WGs and surrounding projects. We did have a set of updates, but few were directly related to the Node.js 8 release - meaning most of the needed post-release updates are complete or nearing completion. 🎉
