Slides complementary to this wiki page


The Engineering Community team presented a change of plans, demoting goals related to QA volunteers and promoting goals related to Project management tools (diff).

ACTION (Quim/RobLa): resourcing plan for implementation after the assessment.

The activity of the team now concentrates in four focus areas:

  • Technical collaboration tools
  • Technical communications
  • Upstream collaboration
  • Outreach programs

An open question was asked, about better collaboration between ECT, Product Management and Community Liaisons. We agreed to increase dialog and collaboration through simple steps, without changing current responsibilities and activities.
