Current Projects

This table lists the bugs representing the current quarterly goals. Those that were set at the beginning of the quarter are tagged with the keyword "bmo-goal". The BMO team also regularly gets requests for high-priority work items throughout the quarter; those that will take more than a day or two in total, thus potentially jeopardizing other goals, are included below, tagged with "bmo-big". The daily smaller tasks are also generally tracked in Bugzilla but not represented in the table below.

P1 indicates a critical project. P2 indicates an important but deferrable item. P3 is as P2 but more deferrable. Note that all items are important, and it is presumed that lower-priority items will increase in priority over time as high-priority tasks are completed, i.e., we don't plan to defer any of these tasks indefinitely.
