Discussion outline


Current Status

We still have a huge number of open issues, despite the team members doing their best in testing, commenting, writing pull request and managing issues. The work on converting SQL to prepared statement is quite complete, few things still need to be addressed. We are very happy to see that the work has started to improve the UX of the backend template. Unfortunately this year we haven’t been selected for GSoC.


Issue tracker process

We have started to review the issue tracker process, we have an internal shared document, where all of us are trying to improve, update the entire process. This is a work in progress and we will discuss it in the next meetings. One of the goals is to update/reorganize all the pages related to the bug fixing and testing to lower the barrier for the newcomers.


Team Leader Election

From OSM rules : Team leaders election period is one year.

If i checked it correctly, I’ve started my role as Team Leader of the Bug Squad in March 2019, so it is time to run a new election. We have had a long discussion on how to run the election. At the end these are the conclusion:


  • The election will be ran in the next team meeting ie March 06
  • The candidates that are not in the Team will send a private message to Sandra
  • The candidates member of this Team simply write in the Team chat their candidature
  • Only the current team members have the right to vote
  • The vote will occur in the JBS room on Glip.


J4 beta blockers

In the past days there has been a meeting in the Production Department focused on the beta blockers, and an official report will be published in a couple of days. We have discussed it in the meeting, we will prioritize the testing of beta blocker pull request.


Next Meeting schedule
