Hi All, We write a weekly report for the OLPC management and employees.
In order to keep the community involved, motivated and knowledgeable, Michael suggested we share it with this list. Its FYI but I'm open to help, comments or suggestions, as always. Thanks, Greg S ************** Status against last weeks goals: 1 - Identify, triage and clarify 8.2 blocker bugs. GS - Done. Triaged all incoming bugs for 8.2. Helped get the 8.2 release down to a manageable set of blocking bugs which must be fixed. See: http://dev.laptop.org/report/28 As of this writing, there are only 9 left with the next action of Diagnose, Design or Code! 2 - Update 8.2 release notes GS - Made some progress with review of update instructions. Added text to all open bugs in preparation for final review: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Release_Notes/8.2.0#Notable_Open_Bugs_In_This_Release Also read and commented on the new manual which will be linked from release notes when ready. 3 - Update 9.1 page with more requirements. Re-check that all Peru input is in 9.1 page. Add Uruguay, Haiti, Rwanda, Birmingham and Mongolia requirements. GS - Done for Peru. Some Uruguay items in but not all. Not done for the rest. Also started engagement with sugar list re: their 0.84 which maps to 9.1. 4 - Prune outdated material off OLPC home page: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/The_OLPC_Wiki GS - Not done. 5 - Follow up on Cmap tools GS - Done. Proposed X windows wrapper activity. CMap developers will consider it and are looking in to the feasibility now. **************** Goals for next week in priority order: - Identify, triage and clarify 8.2 blocker bugs. Help get to a well defined final release schedule. - Update 8.2 release notes - Write 8.2 marketing launch plan. To include lists, web sites and other ideas for getting the word out. Once done, this will sit on the shelf until the release is final. - Update 9.1 page with more requirements. Add Uruguay, Haiti, Rwanda, Birmingham, Mongolia, Ethiopia, others. Start writing strategy section and set schedule. - Find engineering lead for 8.2.1. If none is identified, start laying out the parameters anyway (e.g. date, target customers, goals, target bug fixes and featurettes, etc.). - Find a volunteer and partner to write Beta/Early Field Trial plan. The plan should get pre-release code in to real classes at target deployment countries for comment and review prior to 8.2.1 release. - Update deployments page with latest data, improve timeline and add timeline to releases page. - Prune outdated material off OLPC wiki home page. _______________________________________________ Devel mailing list Devel@lists.laptop.org http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/devel
