Minutes

  • Ilias has taken over Tech Lead for MMWG. See Joey's announcement.
  • Ilias had a few BPs which didn't complete due to illness of person and some BPs turned out to be more difficult than expected.
    • Lesson: spend some time a few days after each release to flesh out the next month
    • Lesson: under promise and over deliver
  • Ilias mentioned that we should begin to get metrics for how many BPs we can do per month
    • Joey ran through how story points, velocity, and planning poker are used. Joey would prefer not to do it by person but by team.
    • Vicky is encouraged to see this question pop up and it signals maturity.
    • Tony said we should spend more than 5 minutes on the WI breakout. He doesn't think it's taken seriously. He thinks this would really help. Joey & Vicky agree.

    • Joey thinks the PMs can take this finding and action into each of their WGs.
    • Mounir agrees.
  • Vicky said that acceptance testing is becoming more important in the LTs due to their roll-out of Rally.
    • Trying to create an acceptance test as part of the user story.
  • Joey indicated that he eventually would like to transition monthly releases over to using more Agile practices such as story points.
  • Mounir indicated that we should be observant at Connect because we're implementing the new roadmap planning process concurrently with running Connect and a Linaro release.
    • Ilias and Fathi indicated that we'll have less available time to complete BPs. We should think about limited the amount of BPs we take on this cycle so we don't over commit.
  • Mounir gave us an overview of the status of the Connect sessions.
    • see how upstream work fits into milestones, backlog, etc.. Goal is to get consistent upstreaming methods.
  • Connect Session
  • General concerns about when status.linaro.org will be done
