Review / Waiting


  1. spoke with various folks about improving community in GS and SuMoMo and elsewhere, working on an iterative program to improve it and will report periodically, looking for your feedback on this, please email roland at
  2. What I believe are the user pains based on GS and other feedback from real users: User talk:Rtanglao/User3.1UXPriorities
  3. SuMoMo - need to create project plan for SuMoMo 1.1 based on SuMo 1.5.x
    1. Gozer got SuMoMo Google search working, thanks!
    2. ran out of time for implementing comment viewing for anonymous visitors will ping Sumo-dev
    3. have heard from Spanish localizers who want to localize, so hopefully in the next few months will have Spanish as well as German and English (and probably Japanese who I hear are very enthusiastic)
    4. Most Urgent Articles needed ASAP - Auto config - How to change change IMAP to POP - failure modes more tricky than I thought, made progress - should be able to document all scenarios this week
    5. Analytics from last week - 99K (105K last week) visits, USA #2 (21K, previous 22K), Germany #1 (21K, previous 23K), Japan #3 (9K, 10K), FR, UK, IT, CA, NL, AU

Feedback on spec also welcome! Please edit the spec wiki page!
  5. No GS Triage Meeting because of President's day
  6. Issues to be reviewed at the next GS Triage meeting scheduled for February 22, 2010 - Please tag topics "review" if you think they need to be reviewed because they cause customer pain
