Past Sprint Review

How did it go?
Jinmei: generally okay, hard to review good/bad about a 1-week sprint
Shane: do we feel more confident the code is complete/stable? should we do it again?
Jinmei: we should do at least one more; not particularily bad, but I don't see any particular advantage of having it
Michal: we got rid of a few tickets that were just sitting there for a long time and bothering everyone, since we weren't supposed to be making a feature
Jinmei: not *only* for bug-fixes and so on, we also did normal development; shorter period, so maybe that is why it is difficult to access whether it is really good or not

Shane: okay, will try another hardening sprint before next release to see

Next sprint


Jinmei: For scaling, we should discuss design details and create specific tickets after agreeing on design details. We can create tickets in this sprint and start working on it.
Jinmei: working on other data-source related stuff, which is somehow related to this work, including how to configure in-memory "cache" concept

Shane: we'll have to work out the data source scaling plan in this sprint and finish executing in the next sprint
Jinmei: gut feeling is it will take at least 2 sprints

  • bind10-showtech
  • work needed for data source scaling
  • define data source scaling plan fully

Jinmei: showtech ticket seems not specific, so it can be easier or harder than we estimate
Shane: we don't know exactly what will be in it, so spend a couple of days...?
Jinmei: what should be done is not super clear
Shane: break it out into subtasks?
Jinmei: need a Python script or something; my suggestion is to implement that part, with some very small amount of information like build options, and then we incrementally add more different kinds of information in different tickets
Shane: that makes sense, I'll update the ticket like that

Jinmei: other question is about resolver research?
Shane: Jinmei will be working on resolver research, also Jelte is away, so we can expect this sprint to be less points
Shane: we usually target 80 points, maybe we should target 45 or so?
Jinmei: depends on how much time I can spend
Shane: if we run out of work we can add tickets at the end

1905 is in a kind of limbo...

Michal: I had problems with 1351, don't know if anyone can work on it, or if is better to wait until after we refactor xfrin
Michal: code is unreadable, would take 10+ hours to do!, hopefully refactoring can make that better

Mukund: Solaris issue causing buildbot to consistently fail
