Documentation Interest Group Sprint Wrap Up

The Islandora Documentation Interest Group (DIG) held a sprint from April 19-30, 2021 in order to audit the current Islandora documentation in preparation for a second sprint aimed at editing and improving those docs for the upcoming release. After two weeks of work, almost all of the docs have been audited and reviewed, and the DIG has plans for the sections that remain incomplete.
