(last sprint: 305)

Past Sprint Goals

  • Work on Scalability

Past Sprint Review

Jelte: noticed a number of tickets that caused a lot of conflict, also tickets waiting on other tickets (almost everything waiting on a ticket in review... close to not being able to pick any ticket)
Michal: Still a ticket without any dependencies not taken... ;)
Mukund: First time that I've noticed merge conflicts since I've been working here. It is to be expected, since there are interdependent tickets.

Jelte closes sprint!


  • hardening.
  • rename showtech
  • add osx and solaris to the renamed showtech? (depending on whether there's room)

Jeremy created wiki page to share opinions about renaming. Initial choice was just to rename everything by adding "b10-" and rename again if we decide something else.

To discuss: build issue on AWS

Our only issue is to set permission on install.

how many points? 30?


move documentation ticket on (4), and probably the lib rename one (4)

release not at end of this sprint, but one week later

Jeremy proposes that we include a documentation ticket each sprint, similar to how we do 5 defects each sprint. Michal suggests that documentation should get done right away, and not get stacked. The question is... do we do that? Jelte suggests we research before our next team call.

Done @ 15:13 UTC
