Nicola is the Team Leader for one more year. Jacob has been chosen for the Assistant Team Leader role.

Issue Tracker Process

Progress has been made on the draft. The focus of the next team meeting will be to hash out this document to ensure that all volunteers understand the lifecycle of an issue that is reported as well as the expectations of what is expected for an issue to be understood. After this meeting we will expect to have a final copy ready for the PLT to review.


Issue Tracker Labels versus Github Labels

It has been noted that certain labels do not carry over to Github and vice versa between the issue tracker. A request has been opened in the JIssues tracker to synchronize Github labels with the Issue Tracker. This will ensure minimal confusion when PRs are created and new issues are created that labeling is consistent


How to address all of the small issues in J4

We have a lot of small issues (minor coding style changes, CSS tweaks, ect.) that are being reported and have PRs. We are looking at each and using the outlined priority process to adjust the priority of the item  to ensure those items that are important for J4 beta are shown as higher priority for testers as well as those who make PRs. We would expect that the smaller items will be worked and merged as we move through beta.


Next Meeting


The next team meeting will be: Fri, March 27 at 7:00 PM CET
