Milestones and Calls for Action



Internal Goals


  • Q2 Community Goals:
  • One and Done
    • Just a reminder that we need more tasks added to One and Done this quarter. Please work with your teams to get some new tasks in the tool
  • QA Champions
    • Each team within QA is creating Contribution Paths. The QA Champions worked on the paths during the work week, but input is needed from the team on these paths. This is a Q2 goal for everyone. Please work with your teams to refine the contribution paths, conversion points, etc so we are able to achieve our goal by the end of Q2 (1 path per team).

Contributor Welcome

These are new contributors, if you see them around, say hello
