Welcome to the fourth Bugle edition for 2019!

The quarterly reviewing results are in, and members of the project completed an incredible 428 reviews in the January to March quarter. Peacemaker67 topped the tally with 55 reviews, followed by Nikkimaria with 43 and Ed! with 33. Another five editors reviewed twenty or more articles each. Thanks to everyone who completed a review, you play a key role in the amazing throughput and quality of the work of our project.

Turning to this month's Bugle, we're pleased to bring you an op-ed by Indy beetle discussing the challenges they've experienced in finding sources on the Uganda–Tanzania War and how they've sought to handle conflicting and biased accounts of the conflict.

The regular article news section covers no less than 15 new featured articles covering a very diverse range of topics ranging from a medieval ruler of Syria to one of the manned moon landings and two US astronauts. Three entries were developed to FA class by Sturmvogel 66 -- well done, and congratulations to buidhe for her first FA. The section also includes 5 new A-class articles (including one by Sturm).

Your editors, Ian Rose (talk) and Nick-D (talk)
