Stakeholders exercise is for planning CASA staff work distribution, according to a broad spectrum of requests; does not control JIVE development effort, though JIVE welcome to contribute as a stakeholder
Tools/processes evolving on confluence/JIRA as CASA 5.8/6.2 planning is settled.
All VLBI-specific efforts to be documented with CASA effort; isolated via "VLBI" and "VLBI@JIVE" JIRA labels. May leverage confluence a bit more in future.
