Roadmap Terminology Definitions

This page is used to document what each symbol means to aid consistent use between teams.

Closed (Delivered)

Development

The code, documentation and regression test cases to verify the code are being created. Expectation is that resources are available and dependencies have been met and forecast date reflects high confidence.
