Action Items For Project Leads

  • Update metadata on Portal so data on Projects page shows up as desired.
  • Primary website Landing Page needs new Projects. See bug 201331.
Improve landing pages as possible

Focus on Backlog and Quality metrics (Neil)

Neil: Untargeted Enhancement is still the focus

  • Current Focus Item:
  • Invalid - Enhancement does not fit with the scope of the project or is already implemented.
  • helpwanted keyword - This is a valid request, but due to committer resources and other priorities, outside help will be needed to make this happen.
  • Future - I would use this in conjunction with the helpwanted keyword. I use this for legitimate requests that are important but will not make any planned release, but likely will make a future release.
  • Upcoming Focus Item:
  • Past Focus Items:
Where did they all go?

  • Branching Strategy
In general, the minimum is if you branch a plug-in to branch all the plug-ins in the corresponding map file. It is fine to branch everything if you choose as well. We may need to reorganize map files slightly and we can investigate that on a case by case basis. This is intended to be a living document and open to evolutions and improvements.
  • Instructions for tagging existing and new WTP wiki pages can be found at WTP's Category page; remember, we can create subcategories as well
