We want to schedule Community efforts to give us the greatest chance for success. Looking to schedule with the academic calendar.
Poll: Given planning for development work at your institution, how much lead time do you need to be able to commit one developer or QA tester, for .25 or .5 FTE of time, for one semester, once per calendar year?
Some discussion of exactly where in the 3 to 6 months range decisions might most easily be made, what implications alignment with academic calendar has
Still open: call for participants in the next Hyrax Maintenance WG cycle (July-December 2021)
Participation target date: The team will begin with onboarding work the week of July 4. Monday, July 12 will be the first day of the first 2-week sprint.
Who we need: 2 Developers and 2 GitHub issues testers who can secure a .5 FTE commitment from their institution for July-December 2021. Work is done in 2-week sprints, two weeks on and two weeks off.
Developers will focus on evaluating the outstanding Hyrax issues on Github, addressing bugs, and reviewing pull requests.
The GitHub issues testers will help the Product Owner evaluate and prioritize open Hyrax issues, and will test issues as pull requests are merged and issues are completed. The people in this role do not need to be developers.
Time frame: July-December 2021. Work is done in 2-week sprints, two weeks on and two weeks off.
