Meeting Notes

  • Topics
    • Security reviews for UX pull requests - Tim
      • Working well, only 1 that is awaiting review
    • How to collect general feedback on UI/UX regressions?
      • Jira issues? - currently using the regression label to flag all regressions
        • Adding regression label before an issue has been triaged
          • More efficient for the project if the submitter bisects the regression to find the exact change that introduced issue
          • Using the ux-untriaged label to indicate that bisection is needed
        • Continue encouraging small commits
        • Basil willing to help others if they would like to bisect faster
          • Mark and Kevin have a session with Basil to document the technique
      • Add new issues with appropriate labels
      • Cleanup old issues
