3 Issues Marked as “Need Review” with Successful Tests

In essence, there are two possible problems.

  1. The PR proposes changes, that need a central decision. This decision must be made within the Production Department leadership based on the discussion on the item.

We can support that by introducing a new label `Needs Decision`.

The issues will then be put on PD leadership's agenda.

  1. The PR is more or less useless, it either solves a bogus problem or solves it in a wrong way. In that case, the PR should be closed, and discussion should continue on the issue.

4 PR Testing Platform

We are still waiting for the server to install the platform on.
