Past Sprint Summary

Number of tickets closed:               21
Estimated count of closed:              65
Number of tickets left new:              4 (1 meta, 2 just added, 1 'design')
Estimated count of new:                  
Number of tickets assigned/in review:   13
Estimated count of active:              63
(again, slightly skewed due to the big log output task(s))

(note: there were a couple of tickets removed and added)

Current open defects: 276
(last sprint: 273)

<jelte> somewhat less than last sprint; added few more tickets at the end

Past Sprint Review


  • Mem-from-db
<jelte> Where are we with it?
<vorner> Worked on his ticket a few hours ago
<muks> Work is done, but needs to go in order due to dependency
<jelte> So we're almost done
  • Design tasks:
    • zone loader (does not appear to have been done)
    • msgq-ng proposal (proposal sent and under discussion)
    • config data proposal (was inmem-serialization but got changed; proposal sent and under discussion)
<jinmei> Haven't heard anything from Shane about zoneloader. No progress yet.
  • NSEC3 in database backend (sub-goal)
<jelte> Few tickets left about NSEC3 in database backend; one still in review

General review

<jinmei> Why we only managed to do 65 points? Is that because some of us took holidays?
<vorner> There was easter (which took away 2 working days)
<stephen> I was out for a bit because I was spending time on DHCP
<jelte> vorner: Did you spend more time on the msgq-nq proposal?
<vorner> Not much. I spent at most 2 hours answering the emails, but it was probably much less.
<muks> 1818 also took time, but it's finally in master now!
<jelte> This was estimated at 1, right?
<jelte> A simple change had lot of unintended consequences.
<jelte> Any organizational things that we should note or improve?
<jinmei> Most of these seem temporary, so it's not an organizational issue, but I wonder if stephen can use his time for future sprints or if he will be busy with DHCP?
<stephen> I am keeping an eye on BIND10 and may be moving into DHCP from the BIND10 team
<jelte> We should ramp up connectivity between the two teams
<jinmei> In this case, we should expect a lower amount of points to be done
<shane> We have to figure out how to balance the hours and workloads, and change our estimates based on that

Next Sprint

<jelte> We have less than a week. Shane, Larissa and I thought that's not enough time to work on features. So we put in time to fixing defects.
<vorner> Shouldn't we try to switch to the new datasrc soon?
<jelte> We can work on that...
<shane> We have a ticket to do that, but it hasn't been made into individual tasks
<vorner> We should at least decide how we configure datasrc. We probably need a meta datasrc to aggregate them together (which we don't have yet)
<jinmei> I'm not so fond of meta datasrc.. in any case we need something to handle that in some way.
<jelte> No consensus here.. so we should have a task to propose something and discuss it
<shane> We should allocate some time during the f2f
<vorner> What about #1750
<shane> We can measure performance now
<vorner> So I will put it into the sprint
<shane> OK
<jinmei> Are we going to complete xfrin for in-memory?
<jelte> Once all tickets are merged and we use it, no doubt we'll find issues. We should finish the current tasks related to this anyway.
<jinmei> That seems to be pretty much a month of work already.
<jelte> Is it?
<jinmei> For a kind of incomplete sprint.
<jelte> I wouldn't expect this to take even a half-sprint even when we are doing things normally
<jinmei> ... including switching to a new datasrc and things like that
<jelte> We can try the hardcoded version now, but in terms of datasrc selection and meta datasrc, we need a proposal done first
<jelte> We can't spend too much time on that right now
<vorner> We use the other datasrc api for inmemory. I think switching to the new datasrc would mean removing code, not adding.
<shane> Shall we kick of a discussion on the mailing list about using datasrc
<shane> We should also finish work on transfers to the inmem datasrc

<jelte> We don't have estimate of how much time we have this sprint.
<jelte> I was thinking we could pick a list of priorotized current tasks and see how far we get.
<jelte> Is there anything that's really important that we should fix (from the other tickets)?
<vorner> I need profiles of configuration (#1843).. but I'm not sure if this is a single task or needs a proposal as well.
<shane> We don't just want a developer to do whatever comes to mind in this case
<jelte> If we just want something, we can provide a number of example configurations (simple resolver, etc.)
<vorner> I was wondering if we could simply include commands from a file in bindctl and just commit
<shane> Being able to read from a file is something we want to do anyway
<shane> It would be reasonable to provide some such thing
<vorner> Reading a file.. it's all or nothing (you don't just get a part of it)
<jelte> I pipe a list of commands to bindctl regularly
<shane> You are proposing to read a file from bindctl
<vorner> Something like "source"
<jelte> There is something tricky here.. -> list indices
<vorner> You can set values directly when adding (by providing json data)
