Higgins 1.0

Revision as of 11:52, 29 September 2007 by (Talk | contribs) (Backlog)

This page describes the work items, and schedule for the 1.0 release of Higgins.


This page's first section "Cross-cutting Themes" describes some broad project-wide work areas. But after that we try to focus on details by looking in turn at each of the Deployments and compiling a list of "loose ends" remaining to be done for 1.0. We'll divide the items into a 2 week "First Sprint" and "Backlog". We have defined these milestones for the sequence of sprints towards 1.0:

  • 1.0M9-1 --the Austin F2F itself
  • 1.0M9-2 --first 2 week sprint after that
  • 1.0M9-3...etc.
