- Clippy: Removal of
- Clippy: More usage of diagnostic items
- Clippy: Changelog for Rust 1.44
- Clippy: More code cleanups: one, two and three
- Tide/http-types: Added various byte conversion methods

My primary goal for May is to reach 60+ WPM touch typing on
thing I want to work on is adding indicators to Clippy's lint
that highlight which lints can be automatically fixed using
cargo fix --clippy (#4310).
