OpenNMS On the Horizon - March 30th, 2020 - Minion, Sentinel, Time-Series API, Kafka, Drools, BMP, Helm, CircleCI, and More!

In the last week we did more work on Minion, Sentinel, Kafka, and Drools, as well as the new time-series API, BMP support, the sink API, web UI bugs, and CircleCI.

Also, Happy Birthday to the OpenNMS Project!
