Infrastructure Priorities Board

The Fedora Council maintains a Taiga board for tracking infrastructure projects. This is intended to provide a simple and public tracker of the high-level concepts of infrastructure projects sent to the Community Platform Engineering (CPE) team.

Acesso

All current Fedora Council members have privileges on the board to create and modify user stories. Community members who have suggestions may request access or ask a Council member to shepherd the suggestion.

Fluxo de trabalho

Ideas for infrastructure projects to send to CPE should be created as a user story in the Ideas column. It is not necessary at this point to have the concept fully-developed. However, you should leave a sufficent level of description in the user story to explain what will be requested and why. Links to existing content (issue trackers, Bugzilla, documentation, etc) are fine; it is not necessary to copy all supporting content.

You are not obligated to take ownership of projects you suggest. However, you also should not assume that others will take on unowned projects.

When someone is willing to take ownership of developing the idea into a more developed concept, the user story should be moved to the Writing column. At this stage, the Council member tasked with this should set themselves as the assignee. Write a requirements document (also called "epic brief") according to the requirements of the CPE team. When the requirements document is ready for discussion and review, add a link to the user story’s Requirements doc field.

Prior to CPE’s quarterly planning meeting, the Council will discuss the ready projects and determine which ones to send to CPE. Projects sent to CPE will be moved into the Submitted to CPE column.

If a project is selected by CPE, it will be moved to the In Progress column. Where available, links to CPE’s Jira or Taiga instances should be added to the corresponding field on the user story. When a project is completed, it will be moved to the Done column.

Projects that are not selected or have stalled will remain until the next quarter. Projects that are rejected or abandoned should have the user story deleted.
