Please see Networking/TeamPriorities for team priorities.

General Priorities for All Team Members

These priorities apply to all team members at all times:

  1. Resolve security bugs rated sg:moderate or higher.
  2. Review requests older than one week.

These should be taken care of before any other work is done.

Individual Priorities

These priority lists should reflect the work that each individual is planning to do, in the order in which they plan to do it.

Only networking team members should be changing priorities. If you have questions about priorities or anything else on this list please email the relevant person or Josh Aas (networking team manager).
