Roadmaps Alignment Group Update
Heather: At recent meeting, focused on planning for work for those who made a maintenance pledge, and doing a needs analysis for a Samvera technical coordinator - document needs and think about if some of work could be divided up, rotated, contracted out, etc. Find creative solutions.
Trying to find ways to encourage more contributors to maintenance work, such as breaking work down into smaller chunks, flexible commitments. Engaging developers at the sprint level, even 1 or 2 weeks of commitment at a time rather than 6- or 8-months.
Start 2022 off with an Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion roundtable discussion (in planning stages)
