Reference/Brainstorming Documents

Mozilla QA Weekly Scrum Pads

For team communications, each QA team maintains an etherpad document for each week. Within this document team members keep a running list of weekly tasks they are working on as well as relevant project updates and issues. Each team member should check into the etherpad and enter some updates on the right side of the etherpad document.
