Support

  1. Support Community Reboot - 2 min. intro video script - fantastic first rough cut w/o links and intro/outro from Rainer Cvillink, thanks to DavidA and Rainer!; will give links to Rainer for first draft
  2. SuMoMo - next: get SuMoMo localization dashboard, bug 549407 working - met with Andrei and Gozer, hopefully they can get this working before SuMo 1.5.5. which is due in Mid June; - no metrics because we turned off Google Analytics but haven't turned on replacement; revamping SuMoMo home page to have top 10 problems (and move list of Articles to another page as per SuMo)
  3. Get Satisfaction (see graphic in Support Appendix - slightly lower than normal week - 365 new topics (423), Sadness slightly up: 69% (66%) - GS contributors please check out our new boilerplate response page as well as GS JetPack Helper 0.3 needs hackers and contributors to use it for frequent support replies, email roland!
    • back to basics for support and user pain - going to sketch out higher level use cases instead of assuming that the solution is to just put a layer on top of GS for new topic input wizard - will document this on a wiki page.
    • searching GS topics to ask users who are technical to test out 3.1 and see if their 3.0.x bugs are fixed
    • thanks to top volunteer contributors: #1 chris ramsden (England), #2 bozz (unknown country), #3 matt (Australia), #4 kent james (USA), #5 archaeopteryx (Germany)
