Metro Highlights

  • The review of the V1 Feature List will be conducted on Tuesday April 16.
    • Product Manager's recommendations for those features that can be removed from the initial release will be presented to the project team for their feedback.
    • Those features selected for removal will be taken into account in the production release forecast of the Iteration #5 status report.
  • Merged the project's 'On Hold' and 'To Be Planned' backlogs into one (Planning) to simplify the process of organizing stories (features, defects and changes) which require modification before entering the story backlog for selection in upcoming iterations.
  • Created a new backlog to manage the project's defect and change stories (Defect & Change Backlog) to better prioritize them in isolation.
  • A cap on the number of defect and change story points allocated to each upcoming iteration will be implemented.
    • This initiative will assist in managing the contingency fund allocated to defect and change stories so the project does not deplete them too soon.
    • Defects will be prioritized over changes.
    • Implementation will occur following the revision of the V1 Feature List.
  • Received an update from Shea regarding the recruitment of a new Metro Front-End Engineer.
    • The number of applicants has been low and an external agency has been sourced to actively recruit for the position.
