The LSST alert stream will enable real-time science, but it relies on a new ecosystem of community brokers. In this session we will review the status of the LSST alert distribution system from end to end. We will describe progress developing the technical systems needed to move 10 million alerts per night. We will outline a proposed process and timeline for selecting LSST's community brokers. And we will discuss ongoing work on the LSST simple alert filtering system (the "mini-broker").
