Community Group Goals for 0.4

High-level tasks

The Community Group has three high level tasks for the 0.4 release:

  1. Identify and implement goals for the Community Working Group itself
  2. Assist other working groups in developing and implementing community goals for the 0.4 cycle
  3. Drive development of deeper understanding of the open source aspects of Chandler development and progress on a Community Plan through the 1.0 release.

For the last goal, possibilities include:

  • more discussions at the All Hands meeting along the lines of that which Ted led
  • discussion of what "success" means
  • discussion of what is helpful in Chandler development
  • mechanisms for determining if documentation which seems adequate to full time contributors is understandable by those trying to get involved
  • giving OSAF folks exposure to other open source communities and events, such as sending people to PyCon, OSCON and other events, even if they are not giving a talk. So some folks could go to attend the other talks, get a feel for the open source communities in action, and join the general give and take.

Design Group: See table in DesignToDoList? (two goals)

Release and QA (from BuildProject?):

(Note: you can only do one STARTINCLUDE and STOPINCLUDE per file, so we couldn't get a list of ONLY the community projects in the following list.)

Warning: Can't find topic Projects.BuildProject

    • One or two people helping with QA -- confirming bugs, reducing test cases, etc. This may overlap with the repository group goal for repository QA.

Repository Group (based only on discussions with Ted so far)

    • One or two people helping with QA for the repository -- confirming bugs, reducing test cases, etc.
    • One or two people working on the repository.

Services Group

Katie suggests
  1. QA of the emerging user interface (later in the release cycle)
  2. feedback about CPIA and other frameworks, similar to the feedback the repository is getting at PyCon

Heikki suggests

  • one or two more ports
  • volunteers setting up more tinderboxes running on their machines that would report to our tinderbox which would display the results along with our tinderboxes

BrianDouglasSkinner suggests
