This Signpost "Featured content" report covers material promoted from 16 to 31 May.

Not much to say this week. I rushed it a bit, but, y'know. One does what one can. From past experience, if a featured content item isn't published, it's just spiked; none of the content in it ever gets mentioned in the Signpost and the next issue just carries on with the next batch of content.[1]

Probably best to avoid that.
