Priority: Low hanging fruit first (plan of dissertation, review categories, rollover time) most important; then what?

1. Operational/User Support Items Completed During C1 2008

For each support item, please list the amount of effort involved as either: low, medium, or high. Guidelines for these rankings are as follows:
  • low - Things that take less than two hours.
  • medium - Things that take more than two hours, but less than eight hours.
  • high - Things that take more than eight hours.

If multiple people are involved in an item, please list it only once. Effort estimates should reflect total time elapsed, i.e. how long did it take to fix the problem start to finish - not the sum total of each person's time.

  • date - name - effort
  • 10 Oct 2007 - PaulMarganian - BOS Transaction floating point error - medium


2. Commitments

The default/unsorted state reflects priority order for this cycle.

As MRs are completed and additional details are available on each task, Open Sky should comment regarding which elements can be fit into a 4-week development period, and which should be migrated down to Background Tasks.
